Therapy strategy and treatment plan

A properly made and accurate diagnosis is the first stage of any high-quality aesthetic treatment. This needs to take into account not only the local findings which are of particular interest to the patient, but also his or her overall constitution, skin type, previous and concurrent illnesses, a possible pregnancy and lifestyle habits. You must distinguish between the primary and secondary treatment strategies which are needed to achieve the desired goals
Primary treatment strategies
The following questions need to be clarified:
Monotherapy or combination therapy?
Which regions of the body, in what order? (For example, it is important for a planned lipolysis treatment of the face to be carried out first. The need for Botox or filler treatment can only be decided 6 weeks later). However, Mesolift can always be performed concurrently, as a large-area regeneration therapy. If it is not possible to carry out all the desired treatments on one day, the most urgent problem zone is tackled first. An alternative treatment rhythm may also be offered. It is necessary to determine a schedule for both the location and also the nature and number of the treatments, together with the intervals between them.
Will a series of build-up treatments be enough?
Will maintenance therapy be needed?
Is the outcome definitive? The individual therapy plan can be adjusted to individual requirements as the treatments run their course but the patients need to be informed about waiting times, their own personal chances of success and the rules that they need to follow.
Secondary treatment strategies
In many cases, a ‘global’ strategy should be considered which includes simple anti-aging measures, for example, the advice to restrict calorie intake with increasing age, while ensuring an adequate fluid intake and supply of micronutrients. As we know, lifestyle has a 40% influence on skin aging, and so it is always wise to consider the overall scenario and offer advice such as quitting smoking during mesotherapy sessions, or offering a specific weight loss program to patients who are overweight.
Exercise machines and electronic toners can be helpful if muscles have become flabby, or in some cases to improve posture. Often, working people need natural remedies to help them cope with exhaustion, burnout or stress which can be a common cause of hair loss, premature skin aging or cellulite. Mesostress can produce a significant improvement in psychosomatic disposition. Mesodrain is indicated in oedema and/or venolymphatic insufficiency of the legs. In some cases, it may be necessary to call in other specialists, such as dermatologists, phlebologists, surgeons or anti-aging experts.
In order to establish a long term relationship between patient and therapist or doctor, it is really important to take plenty of time in this delicate area of treatment. A good result here will also provide the motivation for consistent build-up and maintenance therapy. Usually, after this initial investment, the treatment itself usually proceeds relatively quickly. Both the consultation and the treatment require confidence and experience from the physician and some patience on the part of the patient, as it can take days or weeks before the treatment reaches its full effect. In return, the patient then benefits from the typically long-term effects of the stimulated repair and regeneration processes.
Make sure you warn patients against “quick fixes” before important events, such as weddings, job interviews, etc., as this can lead to stress and mistakes, since the desired effects are not always apparent shortly after a first treatment, and furthermore, this is the time when initial reactions or side-effects are will occur if they are going to.
