It's hard to feel confident when you're not happy with the condition of your skin. Luckily, your Encinitas, CA, dermatologists Dr. David Thomas, Dr. Margaret Dupree, and Dr. William Burrows of North County Dermatology Center offer a variety of skin treatments that will improve your appearance and reduce blemishes and signs of aging.
Dermal fillers restore lost volume
As you age, your cheeks, lips and the areas under your eyes may begin to look a little hollow. As volume decreases, the skin sags, making fine lines and wrinkles more noticeable. Injectable dermal fillers restore volume and help you look more youthful. The effects of fillers last a few months to several years, depending on the type used. Fillers can:
- Fill in vertical lines around the lips
- Plump depressed acne scars
- Add volume to cheeks, lips and undereye areas
- Smooth chin creases
- Soft nasolabial fold lines
Don't like your lines and wrinkles? Botox treatment can help
Botox injections temporarily prevent your muscles from contracting when you squint or make other dynamic facial expressions. The injections contain a purified form of the botulinum toxin and work by preventing nerve impulses from reaching the facial muscles. The injections can minimize the appearance of vertical lines between your eyes, make crow's feet less noticeable and smooth forehead furrows, neck bands, nasolabial fold lines and lines around the mouth.
Chemical peels remove outer skin layers
A few days after a chemical peel, the top layers of your skin will begin to peel off, revealing smoother skin underneath. The treatment reduces fine lines and wrinkles and removes dark spots, freckles and age spots caused by years of sun damage. Do you have acne? Chemical peels not only remove blemishes but may also be helpful in minimizing acne scars.
Laser treatment offers the newest way to treat signs of aging
Your Encinitas dermatologist offers several types of laser treatments that can improve your appearance with little or no downtime. Exposing your skin to laser light can firm your skin, spur production of collagen, eliminate red or brown spots, remove spider veins and smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
