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.

Keeping your skin looking great is easy with help from your dermatologist. Treatments such as microdermabrasion deeply exfoliate the skin using a specialized machine. Injectable fillers help plump the cheeks and lips to give a more youthful appearance. Fillers also work to smooth wrinkles and fine lines. Chemical peels, laser treatments, light therapy and skin tightening treatments all rejuvenate your skin to provide a younger and brighter appearance.
How your Dermatologist Can Help
Your appointment begins by gathering your medical and family history. Your Encinitas doctor performs a physical examination to understand your skin and which treatments you may need. Most dermatological treatments take place in-house and only take a few minutes to complete. Work with your dermatologist to determine which treatments are best for you and your skin’s condition.
Protection From the Sun
One of the most effective and easy ways to keep your skin looking young is to prevent sun damage before it happens. Additionally, protecting your skin from the sun prevents potentially life-threatening skin cancer. Always avoid the sun’s rays, especially from 10AM to 4PM when they are strongest. If you must be outside, try to stay in the shade as much as possible. Wear a hat with a wide brim, sunglasses with protection from UV rays and clothing which covers your skin.
