Cosmetic Dermatology Q & A

What is cosmetic dermatology?

Dermatologists undergo years of education and training in order to specialize in diagnosing, treating, and preventing medical conditions that can affect the health of your skin, hair, and nails. Cosmetic dermatology is a subspecialty of dermatology that focuses on treatments that can improve your skin’s appearance and correct flaws related to aging, sun exposure, scarring, and other issues.

After receiving her dermatology degree, Dr. Ding underwent advanced fellowship training in both medical and cosmetic dermatology and has since gained years of clinical experience in these specialties.

What conditions are treated with cosmetic dermatology?

A skilled cosmetic dermatologist can address a wide variety of issues that affect your skin’s appearance. Treatments offered at City Derm NYC include:

  • Surgery and other treatments to reduce/eliminate scars
  • Botox injections and dermal fillers such as Sculptra to give an aging face a more youthful appearance
  • Laser (Fraxel) surgery to diminish or remove small veins, age spots, or wrinkles
  • Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy to stimulate your body’s natural skin rebuilding and rejuvenating abilities
  • Microneedling to enhance your body’s production of collagen and other skin restorative substances
  • Chemical peels and other resurfacing techniques to smooth your skin’s texture and erase fine lines, age spots, and other surface flaws

Dr. Ding also provides extensive education regarding the care of your skin and offers guidance about the products you can use and habits you can adopt to nourish and protect your skin, hair, and nails.

What is Sculptra?

With aging and some illnesses, you can experience facial fat loss that leads to sunken cheeks and drooping skin. Sculptra is a type of dermal filler that, when injected under your skin, can restore volume that’s lost with the normal aging process or during an illness.

Sculptra contains a biocompatible substance that safely plumps your cheeks and other problematic areas as it stimulates collagen production. Dr. Ding uses Sculptra to treat deep lines, creases, and skin folds and restore a youthful, healthy appearance to your face.

Dr. Ding’s extensive skill as a cosmetic dermatologist helps ensure the aesthetic treatments she offers are safe and effective and provide natural-appearing results. Schedule a visit today with Dr. Ding at City Derm NYC. Call the office or book your visit online.
