IMPROVING THE LOOKS OF YOUR SKIN
Many of our patients love the benefits of improving the skin and removing abnormal growths, as well as doing diagnostic tests that get to the root source of the abnormal skin disease, which will help with the long-term course of treatment. However, the best results come from refining the surface of the skin with cosmetic procedures.
Cosmetic dermatology is any skin treatment process that helps improve the appearance of a patient's skin. More often than not, these treatments are not required for medical reasons. However, patients who desire more confidence or an improved appearance will find cosmetic dermatology procedures from our talented team to be the solution they desire.
Hair restoration service at World’s Famous Dermatologist is a very straight- forward approach to helping out guest patients who suffer from non-scarring alopecia (hair loss). For many of these guest patients, client education is a good starting point. As far as hair care habits and practices are concerned, these should be discussed with your provider during your visit. Permanent hair treatment, weaves, braided hair styles, and treatment that involve any heat or chemicals are harmful to the hair restoration process. Generally, the provider will offer therapeutic injections with anti-inflammatory hair restoration solution and twice-daily use of WFD hair serum will be recommended at home in-between visits.
COSMETIC MOLE REMOVAL
It is common for a guest to visit us and request that a mole be removed from anywhere on the skin, which may have nothing to do with medical risk. We refer to benign mole removal as cosmetic mole removal. This includes skin tags, milia, sebaceous glands (oil glands on the face), dermatosis papulosis nigra (flesh-colored moles all over the face). These are often removed after injecting numbing medicine on the surface for larger skin lesions, although sometimes spared in smaller ones. Sometimes there are so many moles removed from the face that it leads to other procedures for further refinement, like microdermabrasion.
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure using a hard surface tip known as a diamond tip. The diamond tip is a diamond-encrusted tip that will allow for precise execution of the treatment of hyperpigmentation and texture changes of the face. A series of 4-8 treatments along with a proper WFD skincare regime will yield improved overall results. The treatment is a manual exfoliant removing layers of dead skin cells revealing soft supple skin with a polished renewed look. The skin ultimately will rejuvenate itself. This treatment will increase collagen production, blood flow, stimulates cell metabolism, diminish sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores and coarsely textured skin.
There is little to no downtown after this treatment. Our patients
can resume daily activities immediately. Keeping the skin hydrated and the use of gentle skincare products for home care is highly recommended. It is extremely important to protect the skin with WFD sunscreen. The skin can become a little more sensitive in the following weeks after the series of treatments. Noticeable results can be expected after the first treatment. The number of treatments in the series will be determined by the patients’ specific needs.
A chemical peel is a chemical exfoliation that aids in brightening, smoothing, and polishing the skin. There are different levels of peels. This can include enzyme peels, glycolic acid 30% or lower, lactic acid 30% or lower and salicylic acid. Chemical peels can improve the texture of the skin, barrier function, and moisture retention. (Barrier function: protects the top layer of skin from irritation and dehydration) It also helps cell turnover rate, hydration, surface pigmentation, and stimulates elastin and collagen production.
World’s Famous Dermatologist providers love helping patients reverse the aging appearance of the skin. Dermal fillers like JUVEDERM (registered trademark) are injected mainly into the mid to lower portions of the face. This improves the aging appearance around the nose, between the nose and the corners of the mouth, and around dimple and smile lines. This restores the skin to a more youthful, relaxed appearance.
BOTOX (registered trademark) has really grown in popularity as an esthetic treatment for lines and wrinkles mainly in the upper portions of the face. These injections help with lines and wrinkles around the eyes and throughout the forehead and temple
area. It relaxes some of the lines from continued facial expression. World’s Famous Dermatologist is proud to be your service provider for both Botox and Dermal fillers.
