What is cosmetic dermatology?
Simply put, cosmetic dermatology is any professional product or treatment that improves the appearance of your skin. However, the benefits go far beyond “skin deep”. Multiple studies have shown that people’s appearance has an impact on how others judge them in professional, social, and romantic situations. Of course, your harshest and most important critic is the one gazing in the mirror. The confidence that comes with looking your best is invaluable.
Additionally, many cosmetic concerns, such as acne, are actually medical conditions. Improving the health of skin, and improving the appearance of skin, are frequently one in the same.

Safety of cosmetic procedures
At Dr. W Dermatology, we strive to maintain a comfortable, warm, and friendly atmosphere rather than the cold, institutional environment of many medical facilities. However, it is still a medical office. At both of our locations, we maintain rigid standards of safety, sanitation, and staff training. All procedures are performed by an appropriately trained medical professional – many by Dr. Weaver personally. We provide quality, customized care for skin of all types, colors, and conditions.
Many people are hesitant about cosmetic procedures such as dermal fillers and Botox, because they fear an unnatural result. You have probably seen people with stiff, expressionless faces or noticeably augmented facial contours. These effects are typically the result of poor judgment on the part of the provider. Cosmetic enhancement is a precision science, and an art. Our practitioners have extensive training, and the ability to choose the right amount, of the right product, in the right location for an outstanding – yet natural – result.
