Cosmetic Dermatology Q & A


What is Cosmetic Dermatology?

Cosmetic dermatology goes beyond treating various skin conditions and also addresses acne, wrinkles, pigment changes, scarring, large pores, dullness of the skin, age spots, and other issues that affect the appearance of the skin. Cosmetic procedures, such as microneedling, facial rejuvenation techniques, laser resurfacing procedures, fraxel, photofacials, and chemical peels are just a few of the treatments that are used to help restore tone and texture to the skin. Procedures and techniques used in cosmetic dermatology rejuvenate the skin and help to slow down the aging process, providing patients with more youthful looking and radiant skin. A cosmetic dermatologist can help restore youthful vitality to the skin and correct imperfections that make a person look much older than they actually are.

What is Included in a Facial Rejuvenation Program?

Facial rejuvenation programs can include several different procedures and techniques that are designed to revitalize and restore the skin's youthful texture and appearance. Rejuvenating the skin involves improving its tone.  Your skin will become more elastic and supple.   This is accomplished by stimulating the production of collagen, elastin, and other growth factors through the use of dermal fillers, laser procedures, and other techniques. Laser techniques and chemical peels can be used to remove the surface layers of the skin, exposing fresh, new skin underneath. Facial rejuvenation procedures are used to slow down the aging process that can result in wrinkles, lines, and skin discolorations that tend to worsen as a patient grows older.

What Options are Available for Patients who Have Acne?

Acne is a very common condition. It affects not only teenagers, but also over half of the adult population.  There are numerous causes, such asgenetic, hormonal, stress, medications, occupational and environmental factors for acne, and an evaluation by a dermatologist is highly recommended to ensure you are placed on the proper regimen.This is particularly important because most patients with acne develop chronic problems, such as scarring, hyper-pigmentation, and lost of elasticity of their skin. After an evaluation, our team of medical professionals will prescribe the appropriate medication and procedure best suited for your skin.  

With proper care and treatment, the skin can be exfoliated and moisturized and a significant decrease in the appearance of acne can be noticed. Removing dead skin and oils through the use of glycolic acid peels and laser treatments helps to keep the skin healthy and vibrant looking. Individuals who have acne that is related to another health condition or the use of specific medications can be effectively treated by addressing the original cause. It is important for patients to continue the care they receive at the doctor's office when they get home to prevent future acne outbreaks.
