By EMILY GORMAN FANCY
Your skin is one of the first things people notice about you. A healthy, glowing complexion can boost confidence and help you put your best face forward to the world. With so many new and cutting-edge cosmetic dermatology treatments at their disposal, dermatologists can help you look refreshed, toned, and years younger. From lasers to injectables to other innovative procedures, the latest dermatology treatments can get you looking and feeling your best with minimal downtime and little to
Putting Your Best Face Forward
For both women and men, Botox remains one of the most popular cosmetic procedures for the face, according to Wilmington Dermatology Center. In a quick 10-minute noninvasive procedure, Botox temporarily improves forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines, essentially stopping signs of aging. This staple of cosmetic dermatology is approved by the FDA.
Dr. Rosalyn George says Wilmington Dermatology’s patients are also seeking a progression of treatments to include “injectable fillers to address volume loss, a common sign of aging.” Injectable fillers can treat the cheek, jawline definition, lines around the mouth, and lip augmentation. “Additional laser, ultrasound and microneedling treatments are also great options and treat various indications such as sun damage, wrinkles, and skin tightening,” Dr. George says.
Treatments for the Body
The range of options for cosmetic body treatments has grown significantly in recent years. According to Dr. George, the top body treatments at Wilmington Dermatology Center include body contouring, laser hair removal, and tattoo removal.
For stubborn exercise-resistant fat, CoolSculpting and CoolTone body contouring treatments have generated a lot of interest and produced great results, Dr. George says. “Areas of the body that can be addressed with CoolSculpting include the belly, flanks, back, bra fat, thighs, arms and even under the chin,” she explains. “CoolTone can be used to stimulate muscles in the abdomen and on the thighs and buttocks.”
“Laser hair removal is perhaps their most popular treatment overall,” Dr. George says. Using the latest technology, WDC now offers completely painless laser hair removal, removing a barrier that made many people reluctant to pursue this treatment in the past.
Skincare Routines and Comprehensive Care
WDC advises that the first step to establish a healthy skincare routine is to understand your skin type and consult with a qualified skincare professional. Next, it’s important to follow your routine consistently and keep in mind that results do not happen overnight. “Realize this is a marathon and not a sprint, and start small to see what works and then continue to add products that work that continue to enhance your results,” Dr. George advises.
From addressing critical skin conditions such as skin cancer and acne to maintaining and enhancing patients’ skin with customized skin care regimens or aesthetic treatments, WDC takes a comprehensive and holistic approach to skin care services.
Since opening in 2008, WDC has actively participated in clinical research to further their understanding of the field and contribute to advancements. Their clinical research has focused on medical dermatology conditions such as psoriasis and eczema as well as advancing developments for cosmetic procedures.
“Because we are a comprehensive skincare center we see patients who come to us for medical and surgical dermatology needs, for leading edge cosmetics and aesthetic treatments, and for participation in both medical and cosmetic clinical trials,” Dr. George explains.
It’s true; better skin equals a better you.
