Facial Treatments Q & A

Why should I see a dermatologist for facial treatments?

Professional facial treatments involve the use of harsh chemicals or fine needles that wipe away the signs of aging. Because your face is the first thing someone sees, you don’t want to have your facial treatment done by someone who doesn’t have enough experience.

By having your chemical peel, microneedling procedure, or other treatment performed by a medical professional, you can have confidence that you’re in expert hands. This minimizes your risk of scarring or having a bad reaction to the treatment.

Which facial treatments are best?

Facial treatments are beneficial for getting rid of scarring — including acne scarring — and minimizing the signs of aging. So the ideal treatment for you depends on your needs, as well as your budget. Chemical peels, for instance, can improve the appearance of:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Acne scars
  • Sun damage
  • Uneven tone and texture

Microneedling and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments are ideal for helping your body create new healthy cells. These treatments work to improve:

  • Skin tone and texture
  • Skin pore size
  • Scarring and uneven pigment
  • Elasticity and drooping skin

The team at Beaird Dermatology are continuously learning about new products and furthering their education in the field of dermatology. They provide only the latest facial treatments and proudly offer solutions for every budget, since every patient deserves to look and feel their best.

What happens during a string lift?

String lifts, or thread lifts, are often considered in-office mini facelifts. This procedure is beneficial for tightening your skin, making you look years younger shortly after your appointment. During a string lift, your dermatologist uses absorbable sutures to lift and contour your face. The sutures are attached to small cones implanted underneath your skin, which help provide the “lifting” effect.

Generally, your dermatologist inserts the sutures (or strings) into your:

  • Cheeks
  • Jawline
  • Neck
  • Lips

The sutures also stimulate collagen production, which naturally makes your skin more elastic and youthful over time.
