Latest Skin Care Treatments Explained

Wrinkle filler injections, Botox, microdermabrasion, intense pulsed light… are you confused about the latest and greatest skin care treatments? Top dermatologists use many emerging and advanced technologies to perform treatments at their center for skin and cosmetic dermatology, but for those who are not educated and trained in dermatology, the procedures and terminology can be overwhelming, especially at the rate that dermatology is evolving.

Wrinkle Filler Injections

Wrinkle filler injections are designed to add volume and fullness to areas of skin that have deflated or creased with time and age. Top dermatologists use a number of fillers to accomplish this rejuvenation, based on a client’s skin care needs. Some fillers are better for severe forehead wrinkles, for example, while others work best in different areas of the skin.

Wrinkle filler injections are not permanent – their effects last for about six months before you will need another injection treatment to restore smoothness and fullness.


This prescription medication is an alternative to wrinkle filler injections, as another method of improving the look of facial lines. Botox injections temporarily paralyze muscles between the eyebrows, on the forehead, around eyes, or around the mouth. As a result, wrinkles appear to diminish.

Like wrinkle filler injections, Botox applied in a center for skin and cosmetic dermatology is not a permanent wrinkle solution. You will need to see your top dermatologists for another injection within three to six months to maintain your wrinkle-free visage.


You probably already know how important exfoliation is to the health and appearance of your skin. Microdermabrasion takes it a step further. Top dermatologists remove the upper layer of your epidermis, getting rid of dead skin cells through mechanical exfoliation. Underneath, your youthful, smooth, beautiful skin is waiting to shine!

Microdermabrasion is quick and painless and can treat numerous conditions including acne, wrinkles, and uneven pigmentation.

Intense Pulsed Light

Intense pulsed light, or IPL, is the jack of all trades of cosmetic dermatology. This light therapy procedure treats countless skin issues like uneven skin tone, wrinkles, blemishes, large pores, and redness.

Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy is as simple as treating skin with a series of light pulses, customized to your skin’s needs. It can be used on the face, hands, or other areas of the body.

IPL is entirely non-invasive, requires no recovery time, and can improve your appearance for up to a year. Contact Spectrum Dermatology today to book an appointment with one of the latest and greatest cosmetic skin treatments.
