Worried About Visible Aging? See a Dermatologist Before a Surgeon

If the reflection in the mirror looks older than you feel, it doesn’t necessarily mean that a facelift is necessary to regain your youthful looks. Visit a dermatologist and see for yourself the advances that have been made in non-surgical cosmetic and medical procedures. At the dermatology practice of Michele S. Green, MD, we offer a range of treatments for age-related skin changes.

Minimally Invasive Techniques Amazingly Effective

Minimally invasive techniques include Botox and dermal fillers, which relax overused facial muscles and fill in small wrinkles and grooves. With these two procedures alone, you will notice a real difference: a fresher, more rested look. With Botox, more is not necessarily better. Choose a dermatologist with the skill and experience to know exactly where to use Botox, and how much to use for best results. (Read more about Botox treatments here)

Fraxel Gets Great Results with Minimal Downtime

Fraxel Restore is a non-ablative laser that is used to heat the skin in order to stimulate production of collagen over time. It is used to improve fine or moderate wrinkling, and also has the effect of evening out skin tone and texture. Fraxel Restore is a terrific treatment that has been used for many years, and it has helped prevent or postpone many a facelift with its beautiful results.

Thermage Gets Long Term Results

With Thermage, you get long term improvement in skin with only one treatment and no downtime. Thermage is non-invasive and helps firm and contour skin by stimulating production of collagen. And it continues to work for many months after the treatment. The end result is younger looking, firmer skin that doesn’t look “done.” Treatment only lasts about an hour and is pain-free.

A Combination of Procedures Can Be Tailored to Your Needs

Everyone’s skin is different, and with the help of a skilled dermatologist, a combination of minimally invasive treatments can be tailored to address each patient’s specific needs. You can look younger and fresher without a facelift, and without looking “like you’ve had work done.” At the dermatology practice of Michele S. Green, MD, we see you as an individual and recommend treatments based on your skin type, age, and concerns.
