Why I Do Cosmetics

Patients often ask why I do cosmetic dermatology in addition to my general dermatology and surgical practice. My answer is simple: I enjoy helping people feel good about themselves. When used correctly, products such as fillers and Botox/Dysport can enhance intrinsic beauty and create a more youthful look. I continue to refine my use of these products through advanced training courses so that I can accentuate each person’s beauty while still looking natural. I want their friends and neighbors to think, “Wow, she looks great but I can’t tell what’s different. Why does she look so youthful?” These are the best compliments my patients can receive.

When you come for an appointment I will ask what is important to you. What would you like to enhance or diminish? I will give you a realistic opinion of what can be done and what to expect. Then we work together to form a treatment plan. Part of the initial plan is to review cost. With more products in the marketplace, the cost of many treatments is very affordable. The old belief that these treatments are for the rich and famous has never been so untrue. Most of my patients are people just like you who want to freshen their look. I am one of those people too. I use these products myself. I am confident about their safety and love the outcome. Once a treatment is performed, I ask you to return in two weeks for another evaluation. I offer this to every cosmetic patient. We review your results to ensure both you and I are satisfied.

What you need to know before a cosmetic treatment

The majority of the procedures listed above have little to no “downtime” or recovery time. The most common complication is bruising. This can be greatly diminished by stopping vitamins, medications and herbal remedies that increase bruising. The most common agents that lead to bruising are: Fish Oil, Echinacea, Vitamin E, aspirin (Bayer, Bufferin, Ecotrin, baby aspirin), NSAIDs such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) and naproxen (Aleve). For best results these medications should be stopped two weeks prior to your treatment.
