Cosmetic Dermatology

At MDA we focus on safe, proven treatments for the treatment of scars, fine wrinkles, unwanted pigment, and photoaging.

The line between "medical" and "cosmetic" can be blurry in dermatology. We have access to the power of the latest technological achievements along with the best of the gentle, more-natural therapies to help improve the appearance and texture of the skin.

Botox

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a treatment that can reduce the contraction of muscles that cause facial lines over time, resulting in smoother skin. Lasting for 3-6 months, it can also be used to block the nerve signal to control excessive sweating in localized areas. Approved by the FDA in 2002, it has been shown to be safe and effective in numerous studies.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels refer to different types of gentle acids--most derived from natural sources--that can exfoliate the skin. We have a wide range of options, from mild peels which can brighten the skin, to more powerful ones that can unclog pores, smooth scar tissue, and lighten dark areas. With the careful selection and application of a peel, these are safe, effective treatments for all skin types.

Microdermabrasion

A gentle physical exfoliation technology, microdermabrasion can safely improve skin texture and tone, as well as improve some early signs of aging and uneven pigmentation.

Intense Pulse Light (IPL)

This gentle, non-ablative treatment uses broad-spectrum light to treat skin concerns such as age spots, red and brown skin pigmentation's, rosacea and broken capillaries, and improves the overall appearance of the skin by stimulating collagen reproduction. IPL is a great option for patients looking for maximum results with little to no down time. Results can be seen in as little as 1-2 treatments for some skin concerns with maximum results in the majority of skin concerns are achieved in 3-6 sessions.
