Aesthetic Procedures: Are They “Worth It”?
So you’re think about a little cosmetic rejuvenation for your skin, but worried things might not turn out as you plan. Sure, your friend said it’s great, but will you get the same results? And what about that horror story you read about on the internet?
“I think it’s normal to be apprehensive,” says Dr. Miriam Hanson, top cosmetic dermatologist in Austin, Texas. “You have a goal for your skin and want to make sure you get the most out of your investment.”
At Sanova Dermatology, we pride ourselves on staying ahead of the game when it comes to aesthetic procedures and ensuring that they offer the best results possible for our patients. So let’s ask the question: Is it worth it?*

“Obviously, everyone wants to be satisfied with their cosmetic treatment,” says Dr. Hanson. “But before scheduling your procedure, it is extremely important to determine if you are a good candidate! That’s why I like to meet with every patient, discuss their goal, and review treatment options before booking any cosmetic procedure.”
