Cosmetic Dermatology Skin Treatments
At Schweiger Dermatology, we partner with cosmetic patients to help them reach their aesthetic goals. Cosmetic dermatology is one of the fastest growing fields in medicine, with many non-invasive and non-surgical cosmetic skin treatments that rejuvenate the skin and turn back the hands of time without anesthesia or significant downtime. Traditional facelifts at the plastic surgeon’s office have been replaced by cosmetic skin treatments at the dermatologist, including dermal fillers, Botox, laser therapy and skin tightening devices.
High Tech Equals Amazing Skin
The latest high tech devices in cosmetic dermatology can do everything from lift and tighten the skin with Thermage and Ultherapy or completely retexturize the complexion with Fraxel or CO2 Fractional laser therapy. Thermage uses radiofrequency to deeply heat the skin’s tissue and remodel the collagen. Thermage uses “smart technology” that employs heat to target the skin’s tissue and cooling to protect the skin’s surface. Ultherapy is another way to tighten the skin without surgery using ultrasound waves. Ultherapy can tighten and lift the skin above the eyebrows as well as the chin, jawline, neck and decollate. The results have been very impressive. Fraxel laser therapy also remodels collagen using laser energy to correct any pigmentation issues as well as rid of sun spots, crow’s feet and acne scars.
Botox and Fillers at Schweiger Dermatology
Our talented team of cosmetic dermatologists and licensed physician assistants providers specialize in Botox and fillers. Our staff members have been selected by Allergan (the makers of Botox and Juvederm) to be trainers and speakers to other physicians around the country. Our expert injectors have successfully helped thousands of cosmetic patients achieve their cosmetic goals with Botox and dermal fillers.
Skin Tightening Procedures
Aging skin inevitably becomes lax and loose thanks to the natural process of aging, which includes gravity, collagen breakdown and other environmental factors. While facelifts used to be the gold standard in fixing sagging skin, there are new technologies in cosmetic dermatology that effectively treat saggy skin without the use of a scalpel. At Schweiger Dermatology Group, we use Thermage, Ultherapy and Venus Concept to tighten areas on the face, neck and décolletage. These are all safe and proven technologies that produce real results and high levels of patient satisfaction. With the collagen-building mechanisms in these non-surgical devices, loose skin becomes tight and taut. The end result is very natural, unlike the pulled and tight look of a traditional facelift. Patients enjoy amazing skin tightening results with no surgery and very low risk of side effects.
Skin Rejuvenation Treatments
As we age, the collagen and elastin in our skin’s structure starts to breakdown. The result is skin that’s not as supple, firm and tight. We also begin to lose hyaluronic acid, a water-binding molecule that helps plump up the skin and make it look youthful. The advanced anti-aging and youth-building skin rejuvenation methods we offer replace the need for invasive surgical methods. We employ best in class laser and light therapy, skin tightening devices, as well as injectables to rejuvenate the skin, boost collagen production, and restore hyaluronic acid back into the dermis. It’s amazing what our arsenal of anti-aging treatments can do for the skin, without ever going under a knife.
Each patients’ needs, lifestyle and budgets are different. With that in mind, our team of board-certified dermatologists and licensed physician assistants providers will devise a customized plan for each patient utilizing our top-notch laser and light treatments, skin-tightening treatments, Botox injections, acne scar treatments, acne procedures, dermal fillers and body contouring treatments. We look forward to working with you to devise a cosmetic skin treatment plan that will help you obtain your aesthetic goals.
