Visible signs of facial aging may be attributed to sun/wind exposure, genetics, weight fluctuations, hormonal changes, and/or lifestyle. One of the earliest signs of aging is a loss of facial fullness and the development of expression lines — wrinkles that appear as a result of the repeated movement of facial muscles. Softening of these facial lines and creases, and the restoration of volume and fullness in the face can often be achieved non-surgically through treatment with FDA-approved cosmetic injectables. Along with injectables, it is important to consider the right skin care regimen and combination of medical-grade skin care treatments to further rejuvenate skin health, texture, tone, radiance, and appearance.
When skin cancer and other skin lesions must be removed with the least amount of visible scarring, you can rely upon our board-certified plastic surgeon, Joseph DiBello, MD, to provide aesthetic expertise. He also performs all of our cosmetic injectable treatments using the latest injection techniques and a wide range of products.
Cosmetic Injectables: BOTOX® Cosmetic & Dermal Fillers
If you wish to enhance or restore facial contours or to reduce the appearance of lines and creases, injection therapy with soft tissue fillers may be right for you. Injectable fillers can plump thin lips and restore fullness to other facial tissue, enhance shallow contours, soften facial creases and wrinkles, and in some cases, improve the appearance of recessed scars. The result is a smoother, fuller and more youthful facial appearance.
BOTOX® Cosmetic, Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, and autologous fat transfer are popular non-surgical techniques for treating wrinkles and facial lines. Most patients are pleased with the results of these minimally invasive procedures.
Skin Care Treatments
Your appearance is defined by many features, most prominently the appearance of your skin. Sun, skin disorders, aging, and even hereditary can all contribute to visible irregularities in facial skin and to skin anywhere on the body. If you wish to improve the appearance of your skin, skin rejuvenation or resurfacing may be right for you. Skin rejuvenation can be achieved in a number of ways, ranging from antioxidant-based skin care, chemical exfoliants or peels, or other non-ablative methods offered at our practice. The goal is a smoother, clearer, and more youthful appearance to your skin.
Skin Care Regimen
Healthy, beautiful skin requires a nutritious diet and ample water intake, as well as a daily care regimen tailored to address specific skin needs. The right topical skin care products and sun protection can play an important role in improving and maintaining skin health, as well as enhancing skin aesthetics. Using a cleanser, exfoliant, antioxidant serum, moisturizer, and sunscreen that are each properly formulated for your skin type can make a significant difference in the health, condition, and appearance of your skin.
Non-Ablative Skin Rejuvenation
Non-ablative skin rejuvenation options, such as microneedling and certain fractional lasers, create tiny treatment points throughout the skin that begin at the surface and extend to the deep tissue in order to bring about comprehensive skin rejuvenation. During this process, the skin’s natural repair response is initiated, which stimulates the production of new skin cells and new collagen to create fresh, healthy, youthful-looking skin.
Ablative Skin Treatments
Skin resurfacing treatments can include ablative lasers and chemical peels. These types of treatments remove the superficial layers of skin to achieve a wide variety of goals. Each method can be customized to suit the depth and intensity of treatment your skin requires. Ablative skin treatments can be effective for reducing the appearance of wrinkles, sun damage, and hyperpigmentation, while enhancing skin tone, texture, and elasticity.
Skin Lesion Treatment
With exposure to the sun, there is a significant increase in the risk and incidence of skin cancer. Even without a history of frequent sun exposure, new or existing skin lesions that show a change in their nature should be expeditiously examination by a physician. Particularly concerning changes include bleeding, color changes, or growth changes. The same is true with current moles. Early detection of skin cancer is associated with the best treatment outcomes.
When Mohs micrographic surgery is performed by a dermatologist to remove skin cancer cells from anywhere on the face and body, Dr. DiBello can use his surgical expertise to close the wound left behind. His approach aims to produce the best possible aesthetic outcome and minimal scar tissue. In some cases, he may perform the skin lesion removal and closure himself, depending on your needs and preferences.
