Skin Care Q & A

What Are the Most Common Skin Concerns Today?

There are a variety of skin concerns today, and each person's individual issues may be unique. Many people are unhappy with sun damage, skin spots, melasma, wrinkles, acne, rosacea, and poor skin texture. There are a number of options for dealing with issues like these, such as microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion uses micro-crystals to take the top layer of damaged skin off, leaving the new fresh skin beneath it exposed. For people struggling with acne, options like high-frequency treatment can both treat and prevent those stubborn bumps. It can also shrink large pores as well as reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Chemical peels can also be a highly effective way to eliminate a variety of skin problems.

What Can Be Done for Sunken Cheeks and Shrunken Lips?

Sunken cheeks and shrunken lips are commonly the results of the ravages of time. For people who find it discouraging to look in the mirror when they have these issues, there are effective solutions available. Treatments like the ZO Glow use cutting edge technology to smooth the skin, reduce wrinkles, and improve firmness all at the same time. In cases where the skin volume has gone down, it can be restored with the use of dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Radiesse, Restylane, Sculptra, Volbella, and Voluma.

What If a Person Has Multiple Skin Concerns?

This is very common today. Many people have at least 2 different major concerns about the appearance of their skin, and the doctor can help patients address all of these concerns at one time. Treatments can often be combined, and since the treatments at De Silva Medical are non-invasive there is no downtime afterward. With the right treatments, skin can go from looking tired and worn to looking youthful and rejuvenated.

Do You Have Any Treatments for Skin Concerns in Other Areas of the Body?

Yes! It’s not always just the skin on your face in need of pore-clearing, deep-cleansing attention. The back is on display quite often, especially in the summer, and needs care too. Dr. De Silva offers a Therapeutic Back Treatment that is a targeted treatment to help eliminate oil, breakouts, and blackheads for a brighter, smoother back. Dr. De Silva also offers a nourishing hand treatment for dry, aging, chapped hands. The Oraser Microderm Hand Renewal with sugar crystals, along with a massage and a paraffin mask, helps restore even skin tone, hydrate and soften for younger-looking hands.

What Happens During a Skin Consultation with Dr. De Silva?

At your first skin consultation with Dr. De Silva, you will receive an in-depth evaluation of your skin-related concerns and review your medical history. Pictures will be taken documenting your skin's current conditions and analyzed by the doctor. You will then receive a completely individualized program to meet your needs. At each follow-up consultation, new pictures will be taken, progress will be documented and adjustments to your Skin Health Program will be determined to ensure you achieve the best possible outcome for your skin.
