Dermatologist Dr. Marcy Street Discusses New Tech for Skin Care
By Doctors Approach Dermatology & Skin Cancer Center
Dated: Jan 28, 2010
This is an exciting time in skin care and dermatology. Many new products and procedures are available to
enhance your skin’s appearance and erase the visible signs of the environment, age, and stress. Here are a
few office procedures to consider.
Microdermabrasion is a procedure that removes the outer, dead layers of the skin. At Doctor’s Approach
we are using a new, crystal-free procedure called Dermasweep. We can also apply optional infusion
treatments to incorporate specific solutions that target pigmentation, hydration needs, vitamin C, and more.
Chemical peels improve the appearance of fine wrinkles, mild scarring, age, brown spots and some acne.
In the procedure your doctor will apply a chemical solution, sometimes made of fruit acids, directly to the
skin. You will notice visible improvement to the skin after just one treatment. For individuals with severe
pigmentation issues, the process may involve three or more peels to obtain the results you seek.
Botox and Fillers
As we age, our skin can develop wrinkles or even deep depressions around the mouth and the forehead.
While in the past we had to put up with the effects of aging on our skin, today’s dermatologists are able to
take years off your appearance with injection products, administered right in the office. These treatments
are effective for people of all skin types.
Botox is used to temporarily block the muscle movements that create brow furrows, frown lines, and
crow’s feet. The procedure only takes a matter of moments, but it may take up to seven days for the full
effects to be visible. Botox injections are not permanent, usually lasting four to six months.
Dermal fillers are injected in deep skin folds (and even in lips) to plump them and increase fullness.
Collagen is a natural filler, but does not last as long as some other fillers like Restylane, Perlane and
Juvederm that can last six months or longer. To maintain the benefits of a facial filler, it’s good to come in
for a touch up before the benefits of the last treatment disappear.
Many dermatologists are offering the latest in hair loss treatments in their offices. You can get an
assessment of the reasons for your hair loss and breakage, along with treatment and hair transplants for
If your goal is to get rid of unwanted hair, laser treatments can be the way to go. Laser hair removal
treatments produce a high energy light that affects the melanin in the hair shaft and prohibits further
growth. A single treatment can reduce the visibility of hair, but obtaining optimal results usually requires

If you are looking for a permanent makeup solution that will save time or keep allergies at bay, consider
the permanent approach. Dermatologists can now use natural pigments to give you permanent eyeliner,
eyebrows, lips or lip lines. Complete healing after the procedure usually takes about two weeks, but you can
resume activities immediately.
New Skin Care Products
In addition to office procedures, your doctor may be able to recommend products you can use at home to
help diminish the appearance of uneven skin tone or age spots. If you are buying an over the counter
product, look for one that has both alpha and beta hydroxyl acid, hyaluronic acid, sqalane, and 2%
At Home Tip
If you are going to have some of the new skin treatments performed, make sure to ask what you should be
doing to care for your skin immediately after treatment, and beyond. Some of the new treatments are
initially irritating to the skin, so your dermatologist may recommend a special, milder cleansing and
moisturizing routine for the next few days or weeks.
