Cosmetic Dermatology Q&A
What is cosmetic dermatology?
Cosmetic dermatology describes services that focus on improving the health and appearance of your skin. The team at A to Z Dermatology offers a variety of in-office cosmetic dermatology treatments to reverse the effects of aging and sun exposure, including:
- Dermal fillers
- Botox injections
- Chemical peels
- IPL photofacials
- MicroPen™ Elite facials
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is also available for treating hair loss. This minimally invasive procedure involves injections of PRP, a substance from your own blood that contains growth factors. These growth factors stimulate your hair follicles to produce new, healthy hair.
When should I consider cosmetic dermatology?
Cosmetic dermatology services are ideal for people who are unhappy with the appearance of their skin because of sun damage or age-related flaws but aren’t ready for or interested in surgery.
You can benefit from cosmetic dermatology services to address issues like:
- Acne scars
- Fine lines
- Sunspots and age spots
- Lost volume in face and hands
The team also provides recommendations for skin care products from Rhonda Allison® that nourish your skin and keep it looking young and vibrant.
Which cosmetic dermatology is right for me?
The team at A to Z Dermatology offers comprehensive skin examinations to evaluate the health of your skin. They also discuss your cosmetic goals to determine which treatments are right for you.
Fillers and Botox
If you have wrinkles, lines, and creases, you may benefit from dermal fillers like Juvéderm® to fill in areas where you lack volume to plump your skin. Botox injections can treat moderate to severe lines across your brow and around your eyes.
If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your skin because of acne scars, fine lines, or hyperpigmentation, you might be a candidate for a chemical peel. A peel uses a special chemical agent to remove the surface layers of your skin to reveal the fresh, healthy skin underneath.
IPL photofacials use intense pulsed light energy to enhance the appearance of your skin and treat skin flaws like freckles, sun damage, and spider veins.
MicroPen Elite facials
The MicroPen is a microneedling device that creates micro-wounds in your skin to stimulate new collagen production. The new collagen helps improve the firmness and fullness of your skin, so you look younger and more vibrant.
