The most popular dermatologist treatments
1. Chemical peels
Chemical peels are treatments performed to treat various skin problems such as dull skin, acne, scars, wrinkles, and fine lines on the face.
This procedure is performed by applying a chemical solution containing glycolic acid or trichloroacetic acid to the skin. These chemicals are useful for removing dead skin cells so that your outer skin will peel off. The old, peeling skin will be replaced by a new layer of younger, softer, brighter skin underneath.
The side effects that can arise from this treatment are if the peeling liquid is not chosen correctly, it can cause redness or hyperpigmentation marks on the skin. Therefore, always consult a doctor or skin specialist before undergoing this procedure.
2. Collagen induction therapy (micro-needling)
Microneedling has recently become a popular facial treatment in dermatology clinics. This therapy aims to improve skin texture by shrinking pores, reducing oil levels in the skin, stimulating collagen production in the skin, overcoming pockmarked acne scars and brightening the skin.
Before starting the procedure, your doctor will place a local anesthetic on your face. After that, the doctor will use fine needles inserted into the skin. The small wounds on your facial skin then stimulate the production of elastin and collagen which helps heal wounds. Well, this new collagen will make your facial skin look smoother, firmer, and younger.
As scary as it may sound, this procedure is generally safe when performed by a qualified dermatologist. Compared to other methods, micro-needling also has less risk such as redness and light peeling in the first few days after the procedure.
Treatment at this one dermatologist may be familiar. The laser removes the dead layer of skin using light. Lasers are also used to treat acne, remove tattoos, remove spots, or rejuvenate facial skin
New skin cells that form during healing make your skin’s surface firmer and more youthful. This procedure is popular for its effectiveness as well as its pain-free procedure.
Like many other dermatologist treatments, this procedure may also have some side effects. Even so, these side effects are usually temporary and easy to treat, such as warmth on the skin, redness, or swelling.
4. Face filler
Facial fillers are one of the trending treatments at a dermatologist. This treatment is done to fill in areas of the face that experience voids (cheeks, temples, eye bags), or certain areas that want to be emphasized or emphasized such as the nose, chin, jaw. Facial fillers must be done by a competent and professional doctor, considering that fatal side effects can occur if the injection is done carelessly.
Your doctor will inject a liquid containing hyaluronic acid into several parts of the face that you want to accentuate for volume. After the injection is complete, you may experience swelling and redness at the injection site.
In rare cases, face fillers can cause other side effects, such as damage to skin tissue, granuloma/lumps on the skin, or blockage of blood vessels which will eventually lead to skin tissue death. Therefore, always consult a dermatologist and consider all the risks that exist before doing any skincare.
Another treatment at a dermatologist that is still popular today is the Botox injection. Not only for women, but this one treatment is also popular with men in order to increase their appearance and self-confidence.
Botox is used in the world of skin beauty to treat wrinkles on the face, or treatments to prevent wrinkles from appearing quickly. Not only that, but Botox is also used to treat several other health conditions, such as chronic migraines, hyperhidrosis, twitching eyes, crossed eyes, and so on.
As with fillers, Botox injections must also be carried out by a competent and professional doctor to avoid side effects. Even though this procedure is minimally incised, it doesn’t mean that Botox doesn’t have side effects.
Side effects that can arise from this treatment include pain, redness, and numbness at the injection site. If this procedure is not carried out by a professional, you can experience side effects such as ptosis (unable to open your eyes), drooping eyebrows, so that the face is not symmetrical.
