Beverly Hills residents live in a very image-conscious location that rewards talent and good looks. So when you find yourself dealing with aging skin, blemishes, and other skin imperfections, you are more motivated than most to seek out treatment methods that really work. Contrary to what many people think, a dermatologist, especially a cosmetic dermatologist, is able to treat way more than just medical skin conditions. In fact, as a board-certified cosmetic dermatologist serving clients in the Beverly Hills area, Dr. Karyn Grossman can help you revive and rejuvenate your skin! She performs a number of surgical and non-surgical treatments, including dermal fillers and laser skin resurfacing.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Popularized by celebrities like Kim Kardashian, the so-called “liquid facelift” is one good example of a non-surgical skin enhancement treatment. No matter what particular product is used, dermal fillers work basically the same. A gel is skillfully injected into your face to add volume, which tends to smooth out lines and wrinkles.
Do not confuse dermal fillers with BOTOX®, which is an injectable solution that relaxes select facial muscles. Dermal fillers use substances the body is more familiar with to offer soft, natural results. After your treatment, you will simply look like a younger version of yourself. With that being said, our dermatologist may pair dermal fillers with BOTOX®, depending on the situation.
What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Undergoing a laser skin treatment is a very precise way to target unwanted skin for removal, leaving surrounding tissue intact. This speeds the healing process and allows you to return more quickly to your daily activities. Some lasers work on the skin’s surface, while others target the skin beneath. Some lasers use microthermal zones or dots to penetrate deeply into the skin with laser energy. This causes small “injuries” to the skin, but the outer skin remains the same until it is pushed up and out, as new skin takes its place.
