Patients ask, “Is there a dermatologist near me who provides treatment for aging skin?”
Finding the right dermatologist can begin with an Internet search. People will often type into the web browser, “Is there a dermatologist near me?” Patients in Glen Ridge can rest assured they do not have to look far or search for very long to find a highly skilled dermatologist in the local area. They can meet with nationally known dermatologist Dr. Jeanine Downie and her team at image Dermatology® in Montclair, just about a mile away. Dr. Downie provides several treatments to restore health and beauty to aging skin.
To restore a more youthful-looking appearance, dermal fillers may be the ideal treatment. Dermal filler treatment is a non-surgical method for attaining skin that is more beautiful. There is no surgery or downtime, making the treatment ideal for many patients. Dermal fillers are used to add volume to facial areas such as the cheeks, temples, and jaw line. We can fill unwanted lines such as frown lines on the forehead that can develop from facial expressions. Frown lines can cause patients to appear sad or angry when they are actually happy. Dermal fillers can be used to smooth laugh lines (nasolabial folds) as well as treat chin wrinkles. We can add volume to the lips, improve facial skin contours, treat acne scars, and reduce fine lines around the mouth and nose during dermal filler treatment.
In contrast to dermal fillers, Botox is a neuromodulator that is used to relax the muscles and cause them to stop contracting. By injecting the prescription into specific areas, we can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines. Botox is a popular treatment that has been restoring youth to the overall appearance for years. Botox begins working within three to four days after the injection and can take up to two weeks before it is in full effect.
We use chemical peels to treat dull or blotchy complexions, freckles, rough feeling skin, acne, acne scars, skin discoloration, and sun-damaged skin. Like dermal fillers and Botox, chemical peels can treat fine lines. A chemical solution is applied to the skin. Eventually, the upper layers of skin slough off revealing fresh new skin. The result is typically smoother, more youthful-looking skin.
Dr. Downie can personally attest to optimal results from each of these treatments. She has been using Botox on herself for more than 18 years and using dermal fillers to restore facial volume for many years. She also performs chemical peels on herself once a month. If you would like to explore your candidacy for treating aging skin, we recommend scheduling a consultation with her. After reviewing your medical history and examining your skin, she will devise a treatment plan to meet your unique needs. Schedule your appointment today by calling (973) 509-6900.
