BODY CONTOURING

Have a “problem area” that is frustrating you? As we get older, time can do a number on our bodies and make us wish for the naturally tighter bodies from when we were younger. While body contouring is not a substitute for diet and exercise, contouring procedures help with those stubborn areas you can’t seem to work off. In the past, body contouring required surgery, but modern procedures allow for that natural, beautiful figure you desire without going under a knife.

Astoria Dermatology offers CoolSculpting and Kybella as noninvasive body contouring alternatives. They are relatively painless and require little recovery time before you begin to see results.

DARK SPOTS

You may love the feeling of the sun on your skin, but extended sun exposure can eventually lead to skin damage, including dark spots. Dark spots, also known as age spots, are areas of hyperpigmentation in the skin that are caused by overexposure to UV rays. They appear as brown, oval-shaped spots on your skin. As with all skin abnormalities, a general exam is recommended to ensure that these spots do not become cancerous.

There are several ways that dark spots can be lightened. Prescription creams can be used, but our dermatologist at Astoria Dermatology also recommends microneedling and chemical peels as a way to minimize the hyperpigmentation.

Treatment Plans:

General Exam

Microneedling

Chemical Peels

HAIR LOSS

Hair loss can be caused by any number of reasons including stress and diet, but the most common forms of hair loss, male pattern and female pattern baldness, are genetic conditions

Whether you have a receding hairline or thinning on the crown of your head, Astoria Dermatology offers treatment options to get your hair loss under control. Our dermatologist may recommend Platelet Rich Plasma along with topical or oral medications.

Treatment Plans:

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

SKIN LAXITY

Skin laxity is a natural effect of aging. Sun exposure, loss of collagen and elastin, and weight fluctuations can contribute to the deepening folds in your face, neck and chest. While perfectly natural, signs of aging can make a person feel self-conscious.

Astoria Dermatology offers Microneedling and Kybella as methods to reduce these folds and reinvigorate the volume and definition of your skin.

WRINKLES

The most well-known and overt sign of aging skin, wrinkles appear most frequently around the mouth, eyes and forehead. But just like skin laxity, these signs of aging can be reversed and controlled using a variety of cosmetic procedures.

Astoria Dermatology offers a number of different treatment options for wrinkles, including Botox and fillers. Schedule a consultation with our dermatologist to create a personalized treatment plan to rejuvenate and revitalize your skin.
