You deserve to look as young as you feel. Aging, lifestyle, weight, and genetics can all contribute to an appearance that doesn’t reflect all the youth that’s bubbling inside you. The way we look should inspire us to live life more fully, but sometimes it’s just a reminder of yesterday. When your appearance is getting you down, medical aesthetics can help you look and feel brand new. At Chetco Medical & Aesthetics in Brookings, OR, we’re pleased to offer a wide range of aesthetic treatments to our patients.
Things You Need to Know About Medical Aesthetics
Medical aesthetics is an umbrella term for all medically guided cosmetic treatments and procedures used to improve the appearance. Each treatment plays a specific role in helping a patient enhance the face or body. No matter where you want improvements, there is a treatment for you.
Everyone has the right to feel good in the skin they’re in. Age, weight changes, lifestyle choices, and stress can all take a toll on your appearance and the way you feel about yourself. Starting each day knowing that you look your best boosts self-confidence. We all know how far confidence goes in the modern world. A ray of hope can radiate outward to light up opportunities that you wouldn’t otherwise notice.
If you don’t like what you see in the mirror, the friendly and professional doctors at Chetco Medical & Aesthetics can help. They offer the most comprehensive selection of medically guided aesthetic treatments in the Brookings area.
What’s the Difference Between Medical Aesthetics and Spa Aesthetics?
You won’t find aesthetic medicine treatment everywhere. Some cosmetic services don’t require a medical degree to perform, but others do. Many patients prefer receiving treatment from an experienced and trained medical professional even when a medical degree isn’t required.
Clients prefer seeing a doctor for their aesthetic needs because they have specialized education and training. Only a doctor knows how treatment can impact the body as a unit. There are also legal obligations in place that hold doctors accountable, which helps facilitate patient trust. Opting for aesthetic medicine means you always know that a medical doctor is on your team and that you are receiving premium care.
What Can Medical Aesthetics Do for Me?
Aesthetic medicine is a broad field that can help all the most common physical concerns people have while offering a plethora of benefits. Many of these treatments are fast, painless, and require no downtime after your appointment. Patients of all ages and genders visit our state-of-the-art office to:
- Boost collagen
- Erase fine lines and wrinkles
- Lift sagging skin
- Rebuild self-esteem
- Remove unwanted fat

Which Aesthetic Medicine Treatments Do You Offer?
Patients always come first at Chetco Medical & Aesthetics. That’s why we offer you a complete range of aesthetic medicine services with only the most advanced groundbreaking technology like AccuVein®. When expertise and world-class FDA-approved technology meet, you receive unparalleled results.
Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®
Say goodbye to fine lines and wrinkles. Neuromodulators like Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are popular injectable treatments that relax facial muscles to create a younger-looking face. Most of the lines carved on the face result from expressions like smiling.
At one point or another, every face develops fine lines and wrinkles. Smile lines, frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet can make a face look tired and older than it is. These lines may also send messages about how you think or feel that aren’t accurate. Although lines may be a natural part of aging, neuromodulators can revive your smooth and youthful glow. They can also put you back in control of what your face says to others.
Belotero®, Juvederm®, Restylane®, and Radiesse®
Restore lost volume and turn back time with dermal fillers. The natural protein collagen creates that attractive plumpness in the cheeks, lips, and face. Unfortunately, the body stops producing collagen around the age of 20. As collagen reserves deplete with age, a sunken face and thin lips may emerge.
Dermal fillers are potent hyaluronic acid or hydroxylapatite fillers to reestablish facial balance and volume. We use fillers for nasolabial folds, lip plumping, marionette lines, and facial creases. Fillers provide 9 to 12 months of relief. At Chetco Medical & Aesthetics, a doctor will always administer your dermal filler treatment for the most accurate and superbly pleasing results.
Peel away tired and damaged skin. The outermost layer of skin is often damaged and holds on to the lines, blemishes, and scarring it has endured. Chemical peels are exfoliating skin-smoothing treatments to remove this damaged superficial layer to reveal the clean, clear, and radiant skin underneath.
We offer custom-made medical-grade chemical peels to our patients. We carefully evaluate your skin and skin tone to learn how to treat it best. From there, we apply a safe solution onto your skin to reduce wrinkles, acne scarring, pore size, and even the tone of the skin.
Get rid of stubborn fat in one hour or less. CoolSculpting is a revolutionary non-surgical body sculpting technology that freezes fat away. Results for this treatment are like those achieved with liposuction without the hassle of surgery.
When subcutaneous fat covers muscles, no amount of diet or exercise can give you the toned and sleek body you want. CoolSculpting targets this unwanted fat to bring you the physique of your dreams without downtime or pain. Your transformation takes up to three months to manifest, which provides the most natural-looking results. Coolsculpting recovery time covers from short time to almost none, where you can do your normal activity within the day. The best part is that once CoolSculpting removes these fat cells, they are gone for good.
Enjoy toned and carved muscles without logging extra hours at the gym. CoolTone is a muscle defining body contouring device that uses magnetic muscle stimulation (MMS). One session provides up to 25,000 supramaximal muscle contractions to stimulate a robust and athletic form.
You can achieve a better tone in the abdomen, buttocks, and legs by receiving this treatment. One session lasts between 30 and 45 minutes. Many patients find that four weekly sessions deliver the most pronounced muscle enhancing results.
Regenerate the skin’s surface for an all-over improvement. Microneedling is a non-surgical process of skin revitalization for target regions or complete facial care. During the treatment, we use a specialty device to create tiny abrasions in the skin that provoke the body’s healing response and natural collagen production. As a result, you get fresh, revitalized skin.
As one of the most popular aesthetic treatment options for over 20 years, research proves that this treatment is effective for reducing very-fine wrinkles while improving skin texture and tone. Patients commonly use microneedling on regions of the face or neck. You’ll experience optimal results from this treatment after three sessions spaced three to four weeks apart.
Lift sagging skin without surgery. If you’ve considered a facelift or other body lifting treatments but don’t want the risks of surgery, Nova Threads could be for you. This non-invasive treatment uses absorbable surgical PDO sutures to lift and firm skin without incisions, scars, or the risks associated with an operation.
During treatment, your doctor injects the thread into your skin. Once in place, your body begins the natural process of healing, which occurs around the safe and absorbable suture. Over the next several months, collagen flows to fill folds, and tighten skin.
You won’t have a sudden, shocking change with this procedure. The discrete nature of this treatment is highly desirable for our patients. Results manifest over about six months and last up to three years or more.
One device can deliver everything you need. Versa is a non-surgical and highly versatile device to treat many cosmetic requests. We’re proud to offer one of the most spectacular achievements in modern technology at Chetco Medical & Aesthetics.
This intense pulsed light (IPL) with SmartPulse™ technology device delivers photo-facial treatments, acne treatments, laser hair removal, skin resurfacing, and wrinkle reduction. We customize every Versa treatment to maximize your benefits.
ZO® Skin Health and Epionce®
Take home medical-grade skincare. Healthy skin is a daily practice, and using high-quality skincare at home can preserve, protect, and repair your skin. At Chetco Medical & Aesthetics, we use only the best ZO Skin Health and Epionce skincare products in our practice.
