Understand the Basics of Cosmetic Dermatology

The world of cosmetic dermatology is growing rapidly and seems to be ever changing. No matter your skin concern there now seem to be a million and one ways to “fix” it. So, how do you make sense of what’s out there and truly figure out what you need and what is right for you?

Let’s break down some of the basics of cosmetic dermatology:

  1. Skin Care RoutineYour daily skincare routine is truly the backbone of your skin health and appearance. At a minimum, a gentle cleanser, daily SPF, antioxidant product, and exfoliating product should be used regularly. Once you’ve established your core routine you can then start adding in more specific or targeted products such as eye creams, lip products, and others to enhance your results. Skincare doesn’t need to break the bank, either! You may decide to splurge on a high concentration antioxidant serum and then use your drugstore products for everything else, and there is nothing wrong with that! Our philosophy is to use products that work for you and fit into your routine, your budget, and your life.
  2. NeurotoxinProducts like BOTOX®, Dysport®, and Xeomin® are used to help relax the muscles whose movement contributes to permanent lines on the face. When used together with your robust skincare routine, introducing a neurotoxin is a way to maintain a youthful appearance in a natural way. Most patients will find their results last anywhere between two and four months, and there is no downtime after your injections. A neurotoxin isn’t just for lines on the forehead or between the brows. These products, when injected by a trained medical professional, can be used to subtly enhance the size and shape of the lips, tighten along the jawline, reduce downturn of the lips, soften the bumpy appearance of the chin and help relax tight bands in the neck.
  3. FillersFillers are used as part of your overall skin care arsenal to help contour, volumize and rejuvenate the face, and other areas including the backs of the hands. Using these hyaluronic acid based products in a skilled and artful way can help you achieve a natural and more youthful appearance without the need for surgical intervention. When fillers were first introduced there were only very few options available and techniques were not refined. Today, we have the luxury of multiple filler products available and the expertise from decades of injecting to know just the right product and technique that will help achieve a patient’s desired results.
  4. Laser: At Zel Skin & Laser we have several different lasers available to help you achieve your goals. From vascular laser to treat redness and blood vessels to a full resurfacing CO2 laser – you may want to incorporate laser to help even the skin tone.
