Cosmetic Dermatology Q & A

What services are included in cosmetic dermatology?

Cosmetic dermatology improves your look, but the services aren’t medically necessary. A boost in your appearance can, however, help your self-esteem and overall confidence. Treatments available at Cutis Wellness Dermatology & Dermatopathology include:

  • Botox® for wrinkle reduction
  • Juvéderm® dermal fillers to smooth out fine lines and fill in volume loss
  • Microneedling to prompt your skin’s own healing
  • Sesderma® and PCA® quality skin care products
  • Laser resurfacing to improve texture and tone
  • Customizable chemical peels for smoother, more uniform skin
  • CoolSculpting® for body contouring and fat reduction

Skin tag removal and destruction of benign lesions are other cosmetic surgical services that are offered, too.

How can cosmetic dermatology help improve my appearance?

Cosmetic dermatology treats a number of common skin complaints, such as:

  • Aging skin, including wrinkles, lines, sagging, and age spots
  • Sun damage
  • Red, inflamed skin
  • Acne breakouts
  • Scars, including those from acne
  • Visible blood vessels

Discuss your concerns with your provider at Cutis Wellness Dermatology & Dermatopathology, and they can create a customized plan using one or more treatments. They take into account your aesthetic goals, budget, and tolerance for downtime.

What is microneedling?

A nonsurgical method of skin rejuvenation, microneedling uses a device equipped with tiny needles to poke dozens of micro holes into the surface of your skin. These micro-injuries cause your body to heal naturally, which increases collagen and elastin. The result is smoother, healthier-looking skin.

Collagen and elastin are compounds that give firm, youthful skin its structure. Talk to your provider about using microneedling to address issues including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Age or sun spots 
  • Stretch marks
  • Acne scars

Microneedling also makes your skin more receptive to the application of serums and other topicals that boost skin health.

What are the benefits of chemical peels?

Chemical peels involve the application of chemicals to your face that causes old, dead skin cells to slough away. The procedure reveals fresh, new skin that’s more youthful and smooth in texture. At Cutis Wellness Dermatology & Dermatopathology, you can take advantage of a variety of peels customized for your specific skin needs.

Peels vary in intensity and can address issues including:

  • Sun damage
  • Rough, dry skin
  • Melasma or any skin tone irregularities
  • Coarse skin tone
  • Freckles
  • Uneven skin pigmentation

After a thorough evaluation of your skin and cosmetic goals, your provider recommends the intensity and type of peel they think is best to address your complexion.
