Allure Medical Spa app helps patients imagine cosmetic changes
SHELBY TOWNSHIP, Mich., July 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Allure Medical Spa released an iPhone application to teach prospective patients about cosmetic treatments and to help them visualize potential outcomes. "Many of my patients are tech-savvy and are searching online for the newest treatments," explains board certified cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Brett Kotlus at Allure. "This app gives them a digital resource in the palm of their hands that describes the range of available cosmetic procedures and offers a communication link to our practice."
The Allure Medical Spa app, subtitled "Boost Your Beauty", contains before and after photographs as you would expect on a cosmetic surgeon's website. It also features a visualization tool that allows you to upload a photo for "virtual surgery". A swipe of the finger can shrink the waist or enlarge the buttocks. The final simulation can be shared with friends or with one of Allure Medical Spa's board certified cosmetic surgeons for feedback.
The instructional section of the application includes slideshows explaining various surgical and non-surgical procedures including eyelid lifts, liposuction, and varicose vein treatments. "It can be hard to feel completely at ease in the doctor's office. This app allows patients to look at cosmetic options on their own before they come in for a consultation," says Dr. Charles Mok of Allure Medical Spa. "It gives them a starting place before they come in, and it helps us to pinpoint their needs."
Allure Medical Spa in Shelby Township, Michigan is one of the first medical spas of its kind in the country; it provides some of the most advanced cosmetic procedures in the industry. For example, CoolSculpting, which freezes away fat without surgery, is featured on the app.
"Many of my patients are on their iPhones in the waiting room," claims Dr. Kotlus. "Now when they ask me what a cosmetic treatment can do for them, I can say 'There's an app for that!'"
The app can currently be downloaded for free in Apple's iPhone App Store.
