There are a lot of reasons why people go to a dermatologist. Some may see a dermatologist because they are concerned that the mole that just appeared on their face is a sign of cancer. Or they may have a discoloration on their face or a rash that makes them feel uncomfortable. Others go to a dermatologist to take advantage of cosmetic dermatology services. Cosmetic dermatology focuses on improving both the health and appearance of the skin.
Any dermatologist can qualify to be a cosmetic dermatologist because during the residency program, they are taught different cosmetic features. However, our board-certified dermatologist at Westover Hills Dermatology in San Antonio has gone through specialized training where she focused on surgical, medical and cosmetic dermatology.
Our dermatologist can help you when you want something done that is solely to improve or change your appearance. For example, if you have lines and wrinkles on your face due to the natural aging process, she can come up with a customized treatment that works to eliminate these unwanted skin conditions.
Some of the most common cosmetic dermatology procedures we perform include BOTOX®, dermal fillers, microdermabrasion, micro-needling, chemical peels, Kybella® and sclerotherapy. We even offer medical-grade skin care products for patients to use at home for ongoing benefits.
However, if you have a serious skin disorder, we can help you with this as well. Our experienced dermatologist can help you understand the difference between psoriasis and eczema. She can tell you what steps you need to take in order to make your skin less oily, how to prevent skin cancer or how to clear up unwanted acne breakouts.
Cosmetic dermatology focuses on the aesthetic aspect of your skin. You may opt to use these services to get rid of wrinkles, maintain an even skin tone or change your skin’s texture from rough to smooth. Our dermatologist is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to medical issues and surgical dermatology, and she has the skill and the aesthetic understanding to provide high-quality cosmetic services.
