We're all striving to look our best in the most natural way possible. Every one of us is unique and requires custom treatment. Any aesthetic service should be individualized based on your anatomy, aging issues, skin type, goals, budget and many other factors. There are so many menus out there showing treatment options, that the ideal of creating a masterpiece for the individual often gets lost.. There is a difference between Technique and Art in Aesthetic Medicine.
An example of this is the lips...with all their sizes, shapes and various symmetries. I can use many different learned techniques to restore a lip with filler. If I restore those lips without consideration for the aging face and skin behind them, then I've succeeded at "technique". When a patient receives treatments that optimize and enhance their overall appearance, then we've created "art". The beauty of our aesthetic consultation is to help sort out what is needed. Some days we only want a quick technique. For the long run, however, creating art can be a lot more rewarding for both of us.
