Cosmetic Dermatology Q & A

Which antiaging procedures are available at the dermatologist?

As medically trained skin experts, the team at Beaird Dermatology should be the first people you visit when you’re considering a cosmetic dermatology procedure. Dr. Beaird and her team have specialized training in:

  • Hair restoration
  • Wrinkle removal
  • Antiaging
  • Body contouring
  • Skin tightening

Having a dermatologist perform skin procedures ensures that your treatment goes smoothly. If you have an allergy to a solution or don’t respond well to your treatment, you have a medical doctor looking over you. This way you’re less likely to have side effects or unpleasant results.

How does hair restoration work?

When you’re suffering from androgenic alopecia, or hair loss due to changing proportions of male hormones, you may see substantial hair loss and, if you’re a woman, treatments to regrow hair may be limited. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a new and exciting possibility to restore hair growth.

Using your own blood as a source, platelets are concentrated through use of a centrifuge. As well as clotting blood when you bleed, platelets contain human growth factor hormones. While the precise way PRP helps your body recover isn’t fully known, it’s thought that increasing concentrations of these growth factors serve as building blocks for your body’s own restoration symptoms. This leads, in the case of hair loss, to both thicker hair growth from each follicle, as well as an increase in the number of follicles per square centimeter, effects that have been clinically proven.

Does wrinkle removal really work?

Yes! Dr. Beaird and her team provide a wrinkle-removal solution that works for your specific needs, as well as your budget. Patients who opt for injectables, including fillers and botulinum treatments, often notice a reduction in wrinkles before they leave the office. You may also select chemical peels, microneedling, and string lifts to remove wrinkles.

The practice even offers the latest in radiofrequency and laser technologies. These systems virtually zap away wrinkles by forcing your body to create more collagen to fill in wrinkles and fine lines. While you won’t have results overnight with these options, you can have longer-lasting results within a few short weeks.
