What is cosmetic dermatology?

Cosmetic dermatology focuses upon enhancing your appearance. Brooks Dermatology uses a holistic approach to dermatology, which means the practice considers how every aspect of your health affects your appearance. 

How are cosmetic and medical dermatology different?

Medical dermatology includes medically-necessary skin care such as skin cancer screenings, eczema treatment, and psoriasis management. In general, medical dermatology covers any skin, hair, or nail issue that could present a health issue. 

Cosmetic dermatology helps you enhance your appearance. While not medically necessary, it helps you look better and feel more confident. 

What happens during a cosmetic dermatology visit?

Cosmetic dermatology visits start with a comprehensive health and lifestyle evaluation. Both of these things are important because the skin is like a window to your inner body. Excess sun, smoking, inadequate hydration, lack of sleep, and poor skin care habits can all take a large toll on your appearance. 

You’ll learn how negative habits speed up the aging process and how you can take steps to reverse that decline. Brooks Dermatology provides customized holistic treatment plans to enhance your appearance, such as:

  • Tips for improving skin hydration
  • Supplement recommendations
  • Quality skin product recommendations, like anti-aging and antioxidant serums
  • Sunscreen tips
  • Lifestyle changes

These natural approaches establish an excellent foundation and provide long-lasting benefits.

What are some aesthetic treatments available in cosmetic dermatology?

You can also opt to help nature along a bit with nonsurgical treatments such as: 

  • Botox  to smooth facial lines and wrinkles 
  • Dermal fillers like Juvéderm®, Restylane®, and Sculptra® to add volume to thin lips or sunken areas of the face 
  • Kybella® injections to destroy double chin fat 
  • Microneedling to improve skin texture and firmness
  • Sclerotherapy to close spider veins using an injectable substance
  • CoolSculpting® to destroy unwanted pockets of body fat
  • NovaThreads® nonsurgical facelift using injectable PDO threads
  • Intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments for vascular lesions and hyperpigmentation
  • Laser skin resurfacing to remove damaged skin and show smoother new skin
  • Chemical peels to reduce sun damage, acne, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation

With the combination of healthy skin care habits and minimally invasive treatments, you can get impressive results and avoid the considerable downtime involved in cosmetic surgery. 

Brooks Dermatology gives you a foundation of excellent health and helps you build on it with an extensive array of aesthetic treatments.
