WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE?
Reconstructive Medicine is a fast-developing niche within cosmetic dermatology, which involves the partial or complete rebuilding of the face or body without the use of traditional surgery. The aim of a Non-Surgical Cosmetic Reconstruction is to restore symmetry, and proportion where possible in order to achieve patient satisfaction.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
At 23MD London, Dr Kersh recognises the art of layering treatments – such as Dermal fillers, muscle relaxants such as Botulinum Toxin A (Botox®) and collagen-stimulating technologies such as Ultherapy®. Her precision and artistry ensure natural-looking results – whether revising an old scar or performing a complex reconstruction.
WHO IS IT FOR?
Non-Surgical Cosmetic Reconstruction is usually performed following a trauma, severe injury, or following a disease that has distorted the appearance of the face or body. It is also a popular procedure for patients with birth defects.
IS IT SAFE?
Yes, however, Non-Surgical Cosmetic Reconstruction is never risk-free and for this reason, treatment must be carried out by a medical professional.
IS IT PAINFUL?
There is a slight feeling of pressure as the Dermal filler is administered, and topical numbing cream can be used. Botulinum Toxin A (Botox®) feels like a series of sharp pinpricks, while Ultherapy® can feel like a dull ache.
WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME?
Downtime is minimal and you can resume your daily activities straight away; however, a feeling of tenderness can linger, and swelling or bruising might occur.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
You will see the effects immediately, while long-term results can last up to 2 years.
