6 Popular Cosmetic Dermatology Treatments
Have skin you’re not completely happy with? Cosmetic dermatology can help. From resurfacing your skin to injectables that provide a fresh new look, we have the right treatment for you.

When your face has unevenness, scarring, blemishes, wrinkles, or fine lines, you can feel self-conscious and anti-social. Caking on makeup can make many skin conditions worse, so how can you find a solution?

At Leading Edge Dermatology in Plantation, Florida, Elyse Julian, DO, FAAD, provides a wide range of cosmetic dermatology treatments to help reinvigorate your skin, giving you a healthy, youthful glow.

Top causes of damage to the skin

Your skin is your body’s biggest organ and the one most exposed to the elements. Sun damage, environmental damage, acne, and aging all play a part in the appearance of your skin. 

Lack of appropriate skin care can allow your skin to become dehydrated, scaly, and rough. Untreated conditions like rosacea can also worsen the quality of your skin. We also offer adult dermatology so once we get your medical conditions under control, you can begin cosmetic treatments to deal with the aftermath of skin damage.

6 popular skin treatments

At Leading Edge Dermatology, we have a thorough understanding of the contours of the face and can apply cosmetic dermatology treatments to enhance your beauty and minimize signs of aging or acne scarring.

1. Facial injectables

Facial injectables like Botox® and other neurotoxins address dynamic wrinkles, which appear when you smile, frown, and squint. Your skin slowly begins to retain the creases and lines that appear when you make these facial expressions. Botox simply paralyzes tiny muscles and prevents them from pulling your face out of shape when you’re not making those expressions. 

Meanwhile, dermal fillers such as Sculptra® fill in and plump out static wrinkles and fine lines caused by aging, making your face look smoother and younger.

2. Skin rejuvenation

Skin rejuvenation treatments such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and microneedling can revitalize your skin by causing micro-injuries that your body rushes to repair. The result is more collagen and elastin production, filling in fine lines and wrinkles and diminishing the appearance of scars. 

3. Body sculpting

Body sculpting can get rid of submental fat (fat beneath the chin) for a smoother, tighter, and younger profile. We can also use it on other areas of your body to remove fat and tighten loose skin.

4. Hair and scalp restoration

Thinning hair can reduce your self-confidence. Cosmetic dermatological treatments for hair loss can restore hair growth and thickness for a younger, more virile appearance leading to boosted confidence and self-esteem. We offer a range of hair loss treatments, including Minoxidil, Finasteride (by prescription), low-level laser therapy, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections, and hair transplantation surgery.

5. Permanent makeup

Tired of spending thousands of dollars a year and hours of your time every day “putting your face on”? You can get permanent makeup so your lips, eyes, and brows always look effortless, natural, and on point.

6. Cosmetic surgeries

We can easily fix drooping eyelids with a fast and easy cosmetic surgery known as blepharoplasty. Similarly, we can treat cancerous and non-cancerous moles and skin tags using the latest techniques in dermatological surgery.
