Trust your Charlotte dermatologist
If you want younger, healthier skin, visit your Charlotte dermatologist for effective treatments for aging skin. We all depend upon knowledgeable professionals for services in which we have little, or no expertise. This can mean anything from getting our nails done, to having our car repaired. When it comes to our skin, most of us has very little knowledge, yet most people are convinced that they can take a DIY approach to fight the effects of aging, and they spend tremendous amounts of money on over the counter products with little or no improvement. Board certified dermatologists have the knowledge and the training, combined with proven procedures that can improve skin conditions such as wrinkles, sun spots, and sagging skin. In fact, you will be pleased to learn that your dermatologist can help you take your anti-aging routine to another level.
Treatment for wrinkles
One of the most common treatments for fine lines and wrinkles is Botox®, the brand name for botulinum toxin injections. Simply put, Botox® allows wrinkles to relax. Patients report that results are immediate, although some treatments may take up to a week to show completely. The effects can last for several months.
Age spots and excessive pigmentation
Your Charlotte dermatologist can offer a number of Topical creams and lotions that can block the sun’s rays, reducing the element that darkens the spots. He or she may also recommend bleaching agents and other botanical agents that can lighten the pigment. Chemical and laser peels, as well as microdermabrasion are options to peel off age spots. Broad Band Light (BBL) treatments remove pigment irregularities as well as the red lines often seen in sun damaged skin.
Broken blood vessels, veins, and rosacea
Early detection and intervention are key factors when it comes to minimizing and controlling rosacea. The dermatologist in the Ballantyne area of Charlotte offers Rosacalm, a specially formulated treatment for even the most sensitive, rosacea prone skin.
