An Overview of Cosmetic Dermatology: Types of Procedures & Their Results

  • posted: Jul. 26, 2023

Cosmetic dermatology is a field of dermatology that focuses on improving your skin for cosmetic reasons and not medical ones. At Gold Skin Care Center, we offer treatment for many skin conditions that may impact how you feel. What is dermatology, and what can you expect when you turn to a dermatology clinic?

What Is Dermatology? Treating Skin, Hair, and Nails

Dermatology is the medical field that deals with the treatment of your skin, as well as your hair and nails. There are medical dermatology experts who focus on medical conditions that can affect the health of these parts, as well as cosmetic dermatology experts who focus on the aesthetic aspect. We offer cosmetic dermatology services at our center, helping you get acne treatment, skin rash treatment, and so much more.

Cosmetic Dermatology: What Our Skin Care Clinic Offers

At our dermatology clinic, we offer many cosmetic procedures to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.

Skin Tightening Procedures

When you turn to us, you can get skin tightening procedures to help diminish and even eliminate sagging skin that can result from the natural aging process. We rely on laser therapies at our skin care clinic, including:

  • Ultherapy
  • Sofwave
  • TriLift
  • Thermage
  • Silhouette InstaLift
  • Pure Plasma
  • EnerJet

These options stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, helping tighten your skin without requiring an invasive procedure.

Acne Treatment Options

If you have any type of acne, we offer dermatology treatments that can provide lasting results. With laser treatments like AviClear, ADVATx, Blue Light, and more, we can destroy the bacteria that cause acne, suppress the sebaceous glands, and reduce inflammation that can lead to acne flare-ups.

Active acne can be reduced, as well as the appearance of acne scars. By targeting the bands of collagen that create the scars, laser therapies can break them up and stimulate your body to make healthier and smoother skin to take the place of the scars.

Injectables: Fillers and Neuromodulators

If you’ve started seeing signs of aging, like wrinkles and fine lines, sagging skin, and volume loss, it may be time to turn to injectables. Dermal fillers can help add volume to your lips and other areas that may have become thinner with the years. At our skin care clinic, we turn to hyaluronic dermal fillers like:

  • Juvéderm
  • Restylane
  • Ravanesse
  • Belotero
  • Radiesse
  • Refyne

We also offer dermal fillers that are biostimulators, meaning they can help your body produce its own collagen. The ones we trust are Sculptra and Bellafill.

For the treatment of dynamic wrinkles, we turn to neuromodulators (neurotoxins). These injectables interrupt the signals your brain sends to your muscles, telling them to contract. The options we offer at our dermatologist clinic are:

  • Botox
  • Dysport
  • Daxxify
  • Jeuveau
  • Xeomin

With these neurotoxins, we can treat frown lines, bunny lines, crow’s feet, and so much more.

Laser Tattoo Removal

If you have a tattoo you regret, you can turn to our laser tattoo removal services. Unlike other options, these are minimally invasive because they target the pigment in the tattoo, breaking up the particles so that your body can eliminate them.

We offer Picosecond lasers and Q-Switched lasers. With each treatment session, you can start seeing the tattoo getting lighter. The type of tattoo, the color, and many other factors can impact how many sessions you will need.

Skin Resurfacing

If you have skin problems that keep your skin from having the look and texture you want, we offer resurfacing treatments for skin conditions that can tackle those exact needs. We offer microneedling, with and without radiofrequency energy, to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, as well as ablative therapies like ULTRApulse Alpha to treat fine lines and other skin problems with CO2 lasers.

If you have sun spots or other hyperpigmentation issues, we offer HALO, a laser that uses both non-ablative and ablative wavelengths, while Cortex can provide treatment for scars and large pores. Ultraclear is another option we offer, providing a cold fiber laser that can remove dead skin cells and stimulate collagen and elastin production.

Photorejuvenation Treatments

If you have rosacea, we recommend photorejuvenation options, including:

  • Intense Pulse Light
  • Lumecca
  • Stellar M22
  • Aerolase Neo
  • AdvaTx
  • VBeam Perfecta

These therapies can treat blood vessels that might lead to the reddening of your skin.

Chemical Peels

We also offer chemical peels to help with many skin conditions, including acne, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and more. With our variety of peels, we can help you find the one that can remove the damaged layer of skin and encourage a healthier layer to take its place.

Facials

Our facials can be excellent acne and skin rash treatments, and they can help you give your skin a refreshing boost. Our HydraFacial combines many treatments, including cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, and hydration, to give you dependable results.

If you want an excellent exfoliation experience, we recommend our Diamond Glow facial, which uses a diamond-tipped wand. Our Glacial Rx facial uses cooling technologies and dermabrasion to brighten skin.
