Cosmetic Dermatology focuses on the improvement, enhancement and appearance of skin, hair and nails aesthetically, artistically and cosmetically. Rarely considered a medical necessity, it can still resolve medical dermatological concerns. In 2011 more than 12 billion (ASPS) minimally invasive cosmetic procedures were performed, usually in the privacy of a physician’s office.
Treatments at Advanced Dermatology (ADCS) range from deep cleansing, refreshing, rejuvenating, and restoring skin texture and tone, to reducing skin imperfections, such as:
- Skin tags
- Stretch marks
- Certain birthmarks
- Age spots
- Skin discoloration
- Lines and wrinkles
Tightening of sagging facial and body areas is possible to recapture a desired look or transform a present one. Medical-based microdermabrasion and physician-strength chemical peels are also utilized as part of ADCS’s cosmetic dermatology program.
Attaining and maintaining healthy, youthful skin is a priority. A daily regimen that integrates the use of medical-based anti-aging skin care products with the regular use of sunscreen can help diminish the unwanted effects of premature aging and sun damage. These products, or cosmeceuticals have higher concentrations of medical-grade ingredients for fighting age-related skin problems. They are also pharmaceutically formulated and researched to ensure balance and stability.
Factors contributing to premature-aging or damaged skin that can be controlled include:
- Sun exposure
- Use of ineffective skin-care products
- Lack of hygiene
- Extreme weight loss/weight gain
Vein treatments are achieved through the use of specialized lasers. Spider, varicose and bulging veins are unsightly and often painful. They are easily eliminated with either laser technology or sclerotherapy (a saline solution).
Hair removal, the second most requested procedure, is accomplished with the use of lasers. Facial, eyebrow and body waxing are available.
The average adult body supports 20 square feet of skin. The non-invasive procedures that involve skin areas beyond the face, hands, neck, or chest are referred to as Global Skin Rejuvenation. ADCS utilizes products and procedures that are specifically designed to reshape, repair, and enhance these areas of damaged skin.
Getting started is easy. A consultation with one of our medical professionals to evaluate and present cosmetic options is the first step. The patient’s desires and needs are addressed, and a custom plan is developed that offers the optimal strategy for delaying the signs of aging and for maximizing treatment results.
Aestheticians complement the medical staff in the management of a skin care program. Years of specialized training and experience combine to make a licensed medical aesthetician a vital member of the medical skin-care team.
