One thing Cincinnati residents need to be aware of is that there are actually two types of skin doctors: general and cosmetic. A general dermatologist can treat common skin conditions and perform skin examinations for problems like suspicious moles. Cosmetic dermatologists can also deal with more serious skin problems like deep wrinkles, scars, or skin discoloration.
Dermatologists often display a biography on their websites. Take a look there, and make sure that they are board-certified. Their website may also specify their focus. One way to find the appropriate dermatologist is to figure out what needs treating and find one who offers that particular treatment.
How Do You Check for Skin Cancer?
Skin cancer screenings are an important part of any dermatological practice. If you have noticed a suspicious mole that has recently changed in shape, size, or sensation, set up an appointment with our dermatologist immediately so that we can rule out the presence of skin cancer.
Laser Hair Removal
The unmatched precision offered by today’s medical lasers means that unwanted hair can be a problem of the past. The treatment works through targeted thermal energy directed at the hair follicle, destroying it.
Hyaluronic acid is one of the main components of healthy, youthful skin and is a common ingredient in many skin care products. Its age-related loss leads to gradually thinning skin that is vulnerable to the development of wrinkles. An injection with a dermal filler containing this acid will restore levels of this vital skin substance, thickening your skin and pushing out lines and wrinkles.
Sculptra® is a relatively new product on the dermal filler scene, having been fully approved in 2009 by the FDA for the treatment of nasolabial folds and other types of wrinkles. After the gel has been injected into your skin, it goes to work to gradually begin thickening your skin to minimize wrinkles.
