We don’t believe in G-Force facelifts, super-sized duck lips or Hollywood age-defying beauty. We do believe in making what you have healthy. Our focus is to improve the color and texture of your skin, replace volume loss, and soften fine lines and wrinkles. By focusing on improving the appearance of your natural color, texture and volume, we can help you revitalize aging skin and refine your best features.
Enhancing your skin starts with understanding what’s important to you, your skin type and skin condition. Maybe you want to remove redness, get rid of acne scars, tighten up sagging skin, or erase an old tattoo. Whatever the reason, our cosmetic dermatology services are for men and women who want to correct or restore their skin, with proven and effective treatments.
Face and Neck Treatments
The most highly visible area of our bodies, face and neck treatments can improve any number of troublesome areas. Dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle treatments are near the top of the list for many people. For others, look at KYBELLA® treatment if you’ve grown tired of seeing a double chin in the mirror every morning. We can remove most age and sun damage spots and reduce the appearance of scars. We can repair a damaged earlobe or rejuvenate dry and clogged facial skin with a hydrafacial. Check out all our dermatology treatments to learn more about the best cosmetic therapy for the face and neck.
Skin and Laser Treatments
A huge variety of laser treatment technologies are available to target your specific cosmetic and skin care concern. These skin laser treatments can reduce the appearance of scars, wrinkles, and other blemishes. In some cases, it can remove skin spots altogether. Microneedling stimulates new cell growth and reduces the appearance of fine lines and scars in the face, neck, torso, and hands. Chemical peels are another great tool that our skin specialists may recommend as a standalone treatment or in conjunction with other dermatology therapies.
For people who need a little extra help getting rid of stubborn areas of body fat, we recommend taking a look at our CoolSculpting® treatment. CoolTone uses similar technology to stimulate and encourage better muscle tone and definition. These treatments are much less invasive than liposuction. Excessive sweat miraDry® therapy is another popular cosmetic dermatology treatment.
Dermatologists are skin, nail, and hair doctors. Get Latisse eyelash treatments to grow fuller, longer lashes. Laser hair removal is a great time-saver for those who prefer less body hair as part of their personal grooming style. Hair loss restoration is another dermatology treatment that may be cosmetic or medical in nature.
