Anyone who has looked in the mirror and thought of making some sort of improvement to their skin knows something about cosmetic dermatology. Wanting to look your best is a human trait, and there’s nothing wrong with taking advantage of the advanced and efficient treatments that are available in the field of cosmetic dermatology.
Cosmetic dermatology is the science of treating the skin to produce an aesthetic improvement. The two main categories of cosmetic dermatology are anti-aging therapies and appearance improvement therapies.
Anti-aging treatments are those that are designed to minimize the effects of the natural passage of time. Examples of anti-aging treatments include Botox injections for wrinkles, injectable fillers for areas of volume loss, laser treatment for age spots or sun damage, and chemical peels for textural improvements.
Appearance improvement therapies are those designed to treat issues not directly related to natural aging. Examples of appearance improvement therapies include laser hair removal, Botox for excessive sweating, cosmetic mole removal, and birthmark removal.
A qualified cosmetic dermatologist will be able to address all of your anti-aging and appearance improvement concerns. Patients should remember that although some of these treatments may be widely available, they are still medical procedures and do carry some risk. Expert counseling and the ability to confidently manage any complications that may arise are just two of the many reasons to seek out a board certified dermatologist for these treatments.
Cosmetic dermatology treatments are typically elective procedures and are not covered by insurance.
