Time spent outside in the sun maybe fun for you, but your skin does not enjoy it. It can result in premature wrinkles, sun spots, or skin cancer. Sun spots are those darkly pigmented areas of skin that are sometimes called age spots can be lightened or removed with the use of laser treatments. Chemical peels can also be beneficial when treating sun damaged skin. Your dermatologist at AboutSkin Dermatology will discuss your options with you and come up with a customized treatment plan.
While many adults suffer from acne, it is most common among adolescents. In severe cases, it can leave scars that will last a lifetime unless they are treated. Different types of scars require different treatments. The depth, size, and color determine the best treatment for your scarring. Often, they are treated using lasers such as Photodynamic Therapy. This particular treatment can be used to treat active acne breakouts as well as old scars caused by acne. Chemical peels can be used to treat some forms of scarring. Your dermatologist will determine what is best for you.
Dermal fillers (Juvederm, Radiesse, and Belotero to name a few options) and neuromodulators (Xeomen, Dysport, and Botox) are most commonly used to reverse the signs of ageing. Neuromodulators can relax the muscles responsible for dynamic wrinkles and dermal fillers can effectively plump the voids that result in static wrinkles. The result is a more youthful looking skin.
There are other treatments options available to help maintain youthful looking skin. Skin tightening can reverse sagging skin. SilkPeel or Dermasweep are also be used when treating wrinkles. There are a number of options available, and you can rest assured the staff at AboutSkin Dermatology will work to create the perfect treatment plan for you.
