It's important to note that while cosmetic dermatology treatments can address various aesthetic concerns, they may not necessarily treat underlying medical conditions. Additionally, individual responses to cosmetic procedures can vary, and the suitability of a particular treatment depends on factors such as skin type, overall health, and the specific cosmetic concern being addressed.

Cosmetic dermatology treatments can be a game-changer for those who struggle with unwanted skin concerns like acne, scars, and moles. Whether it's a birthmark or a broken blood-vessel, there are a variety of effective techniques available to address these issues. Age spots, dark spots, and melasma can also be treated, as can stretch marks and wrinkles, giving individuals the confidence in their appearance that they deserve. Even tattoos can be removed with advanced technology. With so many options for cosmetic dermatology treatments, it's easier than ever to achieve clearer, smoother skin. At the end of the day, we're all entitled to feel confident and comfortable in our own skin, and cosmetic dermatology can help make that a reality. Our experienced skin care specialists deliver treatments to reduce skin imperfections, including:

  • Acne - Chemical peels use a series of chemical solutions to peel away layers of dead skin cells, unclogging pores and reducing the appearance of acne. Another popular option is laser therapy, which uses powerful light beams to target the bacteria causing acne, ultimately reducing inflammation and promoting healing.
  • Scars - From lasers to chemical peels, there are a variety of options available to help improve the appearance of scars on the face and body. While no treatment can completely remove a scar, these methods can significantly reduce their visibility and promote skin healing.
  • Skin Tags - One method of removal involves freezing the tag with liquid nitrogen. Another approach is to snip the tag off with a pair of sterile scissors or a scalpel. For those seeking a less invasive option, electrocautery involves using an electric current to burn away the skin tag. It is important to note that proper diagnosis is crucial before attempting any removal method, as certain growths may require more specialized treatment.
  • Moles - There are various methods from surgical procedures to non-invasive techniques for removing moles. One popular method is called laser mole removal, which uses a beam of light to break down the pigment in the mole. Another option is excision, where the mole is cut out and the wound is stitched up. For those who prefer non-invasive methods, there are still choices such as chemical peels, which use acid to exfoliate the skin and reduce the appearance of moles.
  • Stretch marks - Stretch marks can appear on the skin after significant weight fluctuations or pregnancy. One option to reduce the appearance is laser therapy, which uses focused beams of light to break down the scar tissue and stimulate collagen production. Another treatment is micro-needling, which involves creating small punctures in the skin to stimulate the body's natural healing process. This can improve the appearance of stretch marks and increase the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. Chemical peels and topical creams containing retinoids can also help to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. While these treatments may not completely eliminate stretch marks, they can significantly improve their appearance and boost self-confidence.
  • Certain Birthmarks - Depending on the type and severity of the birthmark, dermatologists may recommend laser therapies, topical medications, or even surgery to address the issue. For example, port-wine stains can be treated with laser therapy to break down the pigment, resulting in a lighter appearance. On the other hand, hemangiomas may require a combination of laser therapy and medication to minimize their size and appearance.
  • Age Spots - Age spots are patches of pigmentation that occur due to prolonged sun exposure and can make you look older than you feel. Fortunately, cosmetic dermatology offers several effective treatments to address age spots. Laser therapy is one such treatment that uses intense light to target and remove the pigment, while chemical peels involve applying a specialized solution to the skin to remove the damaged top layer. Cryotherapy is also utilized to freeze age spots, which then fall off naturally.
  • Broken Blood Vessels - One common treatment is sclerotherapy, which involves injecting a solution directly into the vein to close it off and cause it to fade over time. Another option is laser therapy, which uses bursts of light to destroy the targeted veins. Both of these treatments are safe and effective, and can typically be completed in a single visit to a dermatology clinic.
  • Skin Discoloration/Dark Spots - One popular treatment is laser therapy, which uses a focused beam of light to target the pigmented cells that cause dark spots. Chemical peels are another option, in which a solution is applied to your skin to remove the top layer and encourage new, healthy skin to grow. Microdermabrasion involves gentle exfoliation of the skin to remove damaged cells, while intense pulsed light therapy uses bursts of light to break up pigment in the skin.
  • Melasma - Melasma is a common skin condition that causes dark, discolored patches to appear on the face, particularly on the cheeks, forehead, nose, and upper lip. While the exact causes of melasma are not fully understood, it is believed to be triggered by hormonal changes, sun exposure, and genetics. These treatments typically involve the use of topical skin lightening agents, such as hydroquinone, kojic acid, or azelaic acid, which work to reduce the amount of melanin in the skin. Additionally, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and laser therapy may also be effective at treating melasma.
  • Lines and Wrinkles - As we age, the cumulative effects of sun exposure, habitual facial expressions, and the natural aging process itself can lead to the formation of lines and wrinkles on our faces. Some of the most popular options include Botox injections, which temporarily relax the muscles that cause wrinkles, and dermal fillers, which plump up areas that have lost volume over time. Chemical peels can also be effective in reducing wrinkles, as they remove the outer layer of dead and damaged skin cells to reveal fresher, smoother skin underneath.
  • Tattoos - One popular method is laser removal, which uses intense pulses of light to break down the tattoo ink particles within the skin. Another option is dermabrasion, where the top layer of skin is sanded away to remove the tattoo. For those looking to lighten a tattoo rather than removing it entirely, chemical peels and microdermabrasion can be effective. It's important to note that these treatments may require multiple sessions and can be painful, but the end result can provide a fresh start for those looking to move on from a regretful tattoo.
