4 Ways a Cosmetic Dermatologist Can Help You

We live in a world that puts a great deal of emphasis on beauty. From the streets of San Antonio, to magazines and television, we are surrounded by beautiful people. So how exactly do they manage to look so great? Sure, some are blessed with winning the genetic lottery, but surely not everyone falls into that category.  So what exactly is their secret?  The answer is cosmetic dermatology.


How exactly can a cosmetic dermatologist help you? Here are 4 ways they can help you look your best.


Skin rejuvenation

Imagine if you could turn back time and have healthy, rested and youthful looking skin. That’s what skin rejuvenation can do for you.  Believe it or not, your skin is closely tied to your self-esteem.  The better you feel about yourself the more likely you are to be happy. And since our skin is the vessel that our body lives in, it’s of significant importance to keep it looking as great as possible. Skin rejuvenation can help with brown spots, wrinkles, sun damage, scarring, redness and rosacea. It can even help with deeper scarring like atrophic facial acne scarring.  If you’re unhappy about your skin in any way, there’s likely a skin rejuvenation treatment that could improve its appearance.


Belly fat removal

You may be a little surprised that a cosmetic dermatologist can help with belly fat removal, but it’s true. It’s not a procedure just reserved for plastic surgeons. The best part is that dermatologists use non-invasive procedures to help remove fat. So, rather than a surgical procedure, they use techniques like injections or hand held devices that send cold and heat to the affected “fat” areas. These techniques work best for those who don’t have a lot of extra weight to lose. It’s perfect for those who have stubborn fat areas that they just can’t seem to get rid of. It helps kill off those fat cells that seem to be hanging on for dear life.



Do you have unsightly spider veins that leave you too embarrassed to bare your legs in skirts or shorts?  Not to worry, sclerotherapy is a quick procedure that uses a fine needle (think the width of a strand of hair) that is injected into the vein. The Sotradecol drug inflames the vein, then closes it up, and finally absorbs into the body.  The best part is that there’s no recovery time to speak of.  It’s not all sunshine and lollipops though. It’s common to be left with swelling, bruising and redness. Those won’t last for long though and the benefits far outweigh the temporary pain.



Botox is the most common cosmetic procedure treatment administered. The injections help erase fine lines and wrinkles and give your skin a more supple look. It’s a quick, inexpensive procedure that can help give your appearance a quick boost.


If you feel like you want to give your appearance a pick-me up, there are a number of ways a San Antonio cosmetic dermatologist can help. Whether it’s belly fat removal, skin rejuvenation, or something else you’re interested in there are solutions available to you. If you aren’t sure, never hesitate to book a consultation. It’s the perfect way to get your questions answered to see what procedure might be right for you.
