Whether you are struggling with your skin or not, chances are it is time to make an appointment with a dermatologist. This can be a bit more difficult than making an appointment with a GP. One reason is because finding the right dermatologist to work with is not as straightforward as locating a primary care physician. Unless you actually know someone who regularly uses this kind of doctor, you are left to figure out who is good and who is not on your own. To make matters worse, you might not even be all that certain what you should be looking for in a dermatologist. At Westover Hills Dermatology, we strive to make the process of finding care you can trust an easy one for you. Call us today to schedule an appointment!
When it comes to locating a good dermatologist in your area, you will likely have to go online to begin your search. Generally, patients will tend to go into detail in online reviews, and they will let you know if the person you are researching is excellent, fair or if you should check out someone else on your list because of too many negative reviews. Our patients are happy and satisfied with their services, and you can see that by looking at the reviews on our website.
Check Into Credentials
While it is important to be sure the dermatologist you are interested in seeing has a decent education, it is generally best to use one who is board-certified. Board-certified dermatologists have a tendency to be better informed about the latest advancements and treatment options in their field of medical practice. With Dr. Mobolaji Opeola, you can rest assured that her credentials are thorough and perfect to handle your skin concerns.
Know the Services That are Offered
Dermatologists have at their disposal a wider range of skin treatments and services than ever before. Recent innovations in general and cosmetic dermatology services allow us to help improve skin tone, diminish wrinkles, and minimize scars without the need for surgery that can be risky, expensive, and require a good deal of downtime. As such, you most likely want to find a dermatologist who offers both medical and cosmetic dermatology services. When it comes to cosmetic dermatology services, some of the most popular ones are mentioned below.
If you are looking for a minimally-invasive anti-aging skin treatment, dermal fillers should be high on your list. These injectable products have the ability to significantly enhance the appearance and thickness of your skin to minimize common signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles.
There are different ingredients that can be used in dermal fillers. The specific type that you require will depend upon your own needs, goals, and current skin condition. Hyaluronic acid makes a fitting ingredient in a dermal filler because of its unique ability to improve both skin thickness and hydration. Age-related hyaluronic acid loss leads to skin that gradually becomes thinner and more susceptible to the development of fine lines and wrinkles.
An injection with a hyaluronic acid product will help to reverse this process. The injected gel will attract moisture into your skin, leading to enhanced skin thickness and fewer lines and wrinkles.
One of the gentlest forms of anti-aging treatment that you can have performed is an exfoliating treatment. Whether it is through microdermabrasion or DermaSweep, removing the outermost skin layer, composed of dead skin cells and oils, will help to brighten your complexion and give you a more youthful look.
Microdermabrasion is a simple cosmetic dermatology treatment that removes the cellular debris, dirt, and oils that are blocking your skin’s natural radiance. We use a handheld device to gently break up the stratum corneum skin layer. This has an effect similar to the shine that is produced when you dust your furniture. Removing this material reveals the more youthful skin underneath.
Making an Appointment
Nothing will tell you what a dermatologist’s work is like than to experience that first hand for yourself. With an initial visit, you have an opportunity to meet our doctor, ask questions and even take a close look at how clean they keep their office. We always make sure that your questions are answered, your doubts are put to rest, and you feel you’re in good hands.
To get started with dermatology services with a board-certified dermatologist, book an appointment at Westover Hills Dermatology. We would be more than happy to evaluate your case and determine how we can help you. Our professionals understand that skincare is not one-size-fits-all, and that’s why we come up with customized treatment regimens for our patients.
