Your dermatologist in Katy, TX helps you handle common skin concerns
An old expression says, “Put your best face forward.” Although an expression from times gone by, this couldn’t be a better representation of how we value aesthetics in our society today. Whether in the spotlight or not, men and women care a great deal about looking their best. If your skin does not leave you feeling your best, cosmetic dermatology treatments can provide the rejuvenation you desire. Dr. Weaver, a compassionate dermatologist in Katy, TX with years of experience helps his patients handle a range of skin concerns.
Fine lines and wrinkles
Advances in the field of cosmetic dermatology have paved the way for men and women of all ages to feel better about their skin. We are no longer limited to invasive surgical techniques to tighten and tone the skin. Today, Dr. W. helps people achieve their desired aesthetic using powerful non-invasive treatments such as neuromodulators and dermal fillers. We know neuromodulators by the name Botox. This type of cosmetic medical treatment is applied to areas of concern in which wrinkles are formed due to muscle contraction. Relaxing the underlying muscle leads to smoother skin. Dermal fillers address different types of lines and wrinkles, restoring necessary substances to the skin for a plumping effect. Both Botox and dermal filler treatment last several months and provide natural results.
Most people enjoy feeling the warm rays of the sun on their skin. In time, the exposure to UV rays leads to discoloration in the form of brown or red blotches, sun spots, and premature wrinkles. A larger concern with sun exposure is skin cancer. A problem common to sun damage is spots, areas of dark pigmentation appearing on the face, chest, hands, and other areas. Sun spots, also called age spots, do not have to leave you feeling uncomfortable or embarrassed about your skin. Dr. Weaver has a variety of treatment options to banish dark spots, including customized chemical peels and IPL treatments.
Acne and acne scarring
We all, at some point in our lives, experience the occasional breakout. Whiteheads, blackheads, and pustules may develop on the skin as pores become clogged with a waxy substance called sebum. Breakouts at any age can be embarrassing. Chronic acne can lead to great distress, especially when it is thought that over the counter medication should be sufficient treatment. Acne is a serious problem due to the harmful emotional effect this condition can cause, and because severe acne can lead to scarring.
Dr. W Dermatology provides information and customized treatment for acne. Dr. Weaver sees each patient as an individual and believes that only individualized treatment is effective for the treatment of acne. Over the counter solutions are not tailored to your skin and they even hold the potential to create further irritation. If you have not achieved the desired clearing with over the counter acne treatments, there is still hope. Your experienced dermatologist has a variety of treatment options to help you rediscover your healthiest skin and avoid acne scarring.
