Dermatology is a field of medicine that deals with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of conditions affecting skin, hair, nails, sweat and oil glands, and mucus membranes (inside the mouth, nose and eyelids). The extent of services provided is broad – ranging from acne, infections, genetic disorders and skin cancer to cosmetic issues such as scars, hair loss, tattoo removal and aging.
Some of the most popular dermatology procedures include:
Botox – Botox is one of the most popular procedures performed today. Botulinum toxins temporarily relax the muscles that cause lines and wrinkles, softening their appearance.
Facial Peels – Chemical peels combat skin issues related to damaged layers of skin from sun exposure, scarring or other issues by removing dead skin cells to smooth the skin and give it a healthier glow, treating pigmentation and acne scars.
Laser Hair Treatments – Traditional hair removal methods such as shaving, waxing, tweezing and electrolysis can be painful, time-consuming and only temporary. Lasers provide a gentle, non-invasive and long-lasting solution to unwanted hair.
Laser Skin Resurfacing – Laser resurfacing uses high-intensity light to improve the look of wrinkles and scars by tightening loose skin.
Dermal Fillers – Fillers such as collagen and hyaluronic acid reduce lines and wrinkles, provide volume and definition to lips and cheeks and improve the appearance of scars.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) – PRP therapy involves injection of the patient’s own platelets and fibrin for the treatment of wrinkles or scars in the face, hands and neck.
Microneedling – Microneedling is a minimally invasive anti-aging skin treatment technique that stimulates your skin, helping it to heal and reverse the signs of aging. This procedure involves puncturing the skin with tiny, sterile micro needles to promote the production of collagen and elastin.
Microdermabrasion – This procedure sands down the skin using a coarse instrument to remove the top layer of skin cells and reveal the fresh new skin underneath.
