A close relationship with a great dermatologist is the key to achieving your best skin ever. Most people already know that a dermatologist can help them keep their skin healthy when they are dealing with issues like acne and eczema, but dermatologists are also your ally when it comes to getting smoother, more youthful-looking skin.
The medical professionals at Aesthetic Dermatology offer a wide range of cosmetic procedures that keep your skin looking and feeling fantastic. Whether you’re concerned about the early signs of aging or varicose veins, Aesthetic Dermatology offers the cosmetic procedure you’re looking for.
If you’re like most people, then lines and wrinkles are a serious cause for concern. Crow’s feet and frown lines make people appear older than they are. Moreover, they sometimes elicit comments about looking tired or angry when nothing could be further from the truth.
BOTOX, Dysport and Xeomin are types of relaxants. These products soften wrinkles due to facial expression such as frown lines, forehead lines and crowsfeet. By relaxing the muscles the skin is not constantly creased by facial muscle movement and the wrinkles soften and disappear. Botox can be used to lift the brow, improved lip lines, improve jawline contour. Botox creates a rested refreshed appearance and has the power to minimize the look of lines and wrinkles with a single visit to a dermatologist’s office. Unlike fillers, BOTOX relaxes the muscles beneath the skin that allow certain facial expressions like frowning and squinting. In fact, BOTOX blocks facial nerves from particular chemical signals, making it especially effective. With these muscles temporarily paralyzed, lines and wrinkles begin to disappear.
BOTOX treatments are remarkably safe when performed by a board-certified dermatologist like the doctors at Aesthetic Dermatology. BOTOX is administered via a succession of injections into the skin and muscles using a tiny needle. Most people don’t require numbing of the skin before the treatment begins, but your doctor can use a numbing agent if you prefer. After just a few minutes, you’re free to continue with your day. There’s no down time with BOTOX, and most people love the results, which last from three months to one year.
Time’s inevitable toll becomes clear in facial features before it becomes obvious in other parts of the body. Fortunately, fillers offer an effective method for treating the lines, wrinkles, sagging and loss of volume that are among the most common signs of aging. If you are troubled by the appearance of creases, wrinkles and thin lips, then dermal fillers may be exactly what you need. Fillers promise spectacular results, and they can often be injected in less than 30 minutes. The results last anywhere from four or five months and up to one year. With just one visit to the dermatologist, you could easily take a decade or more from your appearance.
As we age, we lose volume in the forms of fat and bone and out facial shape changes from a youthful shape to a more aged appearance. Fillers can add back youthful volume to rejuvenate the aging face. There are different types of fillers and they can be used in combination to achieve a beautiful natural result. Thinner fillers are most desirable for lip lines and lip shaping where thicker fillers are more effective in lifting the face and restoring volume in the cheeks, temples and jawline.
Fillers are injected during a minimally invasive procedure that is performed in the Aesthetic Dermatology office. A highly trained doctor will discuss treatment options with you to help you decide which filler is the right one for you. All fillers used at this practice are safe, effective and FDA approved. With fillers, you can rely on spectacular results every time.
Facials and HydraFacials
If you’re thinking that facials are something you get at an upscale spa, then you’re in for a treat. The medical professionals at Aesthetic Dermatology offer facials that can transform your skin from tight, dry and dull to smooth, supple and glowing. In as little as 30 minutes to one hour, it’s possible to perform a rejuvenating treatment that revolutionizes the way you feel about your skin. Depending upon the unique needs of the delicate skin on your face, your dermatologist may recommend a facial containing hyaluronic acid, Vitamin A, green tea or other ingredients that combat free radicals and reveal the glowing, youthful skin that’s just waiting to shine through.
Any facial may be combined with other cosmetic procedures, such as a chemical peel or microdermabrasion, to bring out the best in your skin. Ask the doctors at Aesthetic Dermatology to assess your skin to determine which cosmetic procedures might be most beneficial for you.
Chemical peels are popular at-home treatments, but did you know that your dermatologist can perform powerful, effective peels in their office? These revolutionary skin treatments involve the application of a chemical solution to the face, hands or neck. Chemical peels are wonderful exfoliators so they remove the dull, dry outer surface of your skin. As the older skin peels away, new, more supple skin is revealed.
Dermatologists use three different levels of chemical peels. The first is superficial and is beneficial for treating mild discoloration or rough patches of skin. A mild acid like alpha-hydroxy acid is typically the main ingredient. When it’s necessary to remove damaged skin cells at the outer and middle layers, then a medium-strength peel may be used. If you’re bothered by fine lines, small wrinkles, freckles and age spots, then a medium-strength chemical peel is right for you. Deep chemical peels are reserved for people who are dealing with superficial scarring, moderate lines or darker age spots. Containing phenol or tricholoracetic acid, a deep chemical peel rejuvenates your appearance within a single visit.
Discuss the various chemical peel options with your dermatologist to determine which treatment is right for you.
Too often, women allow varicose veins to dictate their lifestyle. Perhaps they avoid going to the beach or wearing a skirt because they just can’t bear to show those unsightly veins to the world. Even worse, varicose veins can be uncomfortable. Fortunately, sclerotherapy performed at Aesthetic Dermatology can help you get excited about showing off your legs.
Sclerotherapy is a safe and effective treatment for varicose veins. It has a long history dating back several decades, and millions of people undergo these treatments every year. In an appointment that usually takes less than 30 minutes, a special chemical is injected into the varicose vein. Over time, the injected fluid causes damage and scarring to the vein, effectively closing it off. This makes it shrink and become far less visible.
Although there is some minor discomfort associated with sclerotherapy, it is an outpatient procedure. Most people continue on with their day as usual after having the treatment. Best of all, their legs are smoother and more attractive than they have been in years. Who couldn’t use this valuable boost of self-confidence?
The board-certified doctors at Aesthetic Dermatology perform dozens of liposuction procedures every year. Most people are surprised when they learn that dermatologists commonly provide liposuction services, and they are typically delighted to discover that they don’t have to seek a plastic surgeon to have this desirable procedure.
Tumescent liposuction is a fantastic way to permanently eliminate unwanted areas of fat and improve body contour. The tumescent technique is safe and eliminates the need for general anesthesia. Patients are comfortable and awake and this shortens recovery time. A dilute solution of lidocaine infiltrated into the fat and the fat is suctioned out of the body.
Everyone seems to have stubborn fat deposits that won’t melt away. Despite years of exercise and careful eating, these problem areas just never improve. The arms, buttocks, abdomen, love handles, neck, face and chest are all common areas where liposuction is performed. At Aesthetic Dermatology, the doctors use cutting-edge technology and time-tested techniques to provide a safe and successful procedure every time. With their extensive knowledge of skin functionality, layers and draping, patients can rest assured that they will have an extraordinary experience that will revolutionize their lifestyle and their relationship with their body.
Patients can trust the compassionate, knowledgeable doctors at Aesthetic Dermatology to help them achieve the improved body contours they’ve been seeking for years.
