When you want to have youthful-looking skin, cosmetic dermatology treatments are the best approach. Cosmetic dermatology focuses on procedures that improve your skin appearance, especially on the neck and face. It goes further than minimally invasive procedures such as injections and cosmetic skincare. New York cosmetic dermatology has become more common because it is a minimally invasive procedure.

Cosmetic Dermatology Procedures

Botox

Botox is a toxin, but doctors use it correctly and in small doses. It has both medical and cosmetic uses. Botox injection reduces the appearance of skin wrinkles. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has permitted it to be used to treat various cosmetic treatments and health issues, such as excessive sweating, migraine, eyelid spasms, and some bladder disorders.

Botox targets the nervous system, interrupting the nerve signals that stimulate muscle contraction—this way, the drug causes temporary muscle paralysis. Botox injections prevent acetylcholine secretion, a chemical messenger, which prevents the muscle cells from contracting. The toxin makes the muscle appear less stiff.

Wrinkle fillers

Injectable fillers can give you a younger, youthful look. Most fillers fill lines, hollows, and wrinkles in 30 minutes and offer results that can last even more than a year. Wrinkle fillers are also used for improvement in chins, cheeks, temples, and jawlines, sagging hands, and filling out thin lips. Wrinkle fillers have the risk of an allergic reaction, and in some cases, some permanent bumps are formed under the skin.

There are also some reported cases of scarring, blindness, and nerve paralysis. Wrinkle fillers that last longer are the ones likely to have side effects. Not every wrinkle-filler is suitable for every wrinkle. It is essential to get treatment from a reliable and experienced dermatologist.

Lasers

Laser hair removal. If you are uncomfortable with shaving, waxing, or tweezing to remove unwanted hair, laser hair removal can be an option to consider. It beams concentrated light into hair follicles. Hair follicle pigments absorb the light, destroying the hair and it’s root.

Laser tattoo removal. Lasers remove unwanted tattoos on the skin by breaking pigment colors with a light beam. Black tattoos absorb laser wavelengths better than colored ink, making them simpler to treat. You should schedule a consultation with a trained cosmetic dermatologist who advises on the process after evaluating your tattoo.

Non Invasive fat removal. Noninvasive body contouring aims to remove or reduce stubborn pockets of fat in different body areas, such as thighs, upper arms, and belly, without surgery. Laser fat removal procedures do not need stitches, incisions, anesthesia, or lengthy recovery time.  Some methods work by using penetrated heat through radiofrequency and freezing fat cells.
