WDC’s List of Top Enhancement Treatments in 2022

Wilmington Dermatology Center Glowing Skin Tips

Another year and time to set some goals to look and feel your best in this new year. Looking your best can help you feel your best and be a great springboard into the year. Learning what is available, when to be treated, and putting together a plan are great steps for success in 2022.

WDC offers a wide variety of the latest treatments, from procedures to help restore a youthful appearance in a natural way, to procedures that help tone and contour your body to look your best this coming season.

When it comes to facial rejuvenation we start with the easiest and fastest ways to say goodbye to wrinkles…Botox. Botox is a powerful neuromodulator, which is injected into the muscles of the face to stop them from contracting. By relaxing these underlying muscles, Botox can improve the look of moderate to severe forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines. These lines accumulate over time as a result of smiling and squinting. The word “Botox” has become a general name for any substance containing the active ingredient, but other injections have been developed with slightly different formulations, such as Dysport® and Xeomin®.

Another great and easy facial rejuvenation treatment are dermal fillers. Filler can be used a number of places like nasolabial folds, cheeks, jawline, and lips to add volume where it isn’t as abundant over time. Depending on the area of treatment and type of dermal filler being used, results can last anywhere from 12 months to 2- years! At WDC we are focused on natural looking results and ensure to optimize placement and aesthetic to each individual’s preference.

When it comes to age spots, pigmentation, and sun damage, we have a wide array of amazing options to help restore your skins health and appearance – from spot treatment with our PIQO laser, chemical peels, CoolPeel CO2 laser to also address fine lines, tone and texture, Fraxel Dual for sun damage, wrinkling, tone, and texture, and our BBL (Broadband light) to address red and brown spots in a single series of treatments. With tons of options to utilize, we can customize each treatment to suit your skins needs. For pretty much all lasers that address any kind of pigmentation, age spots, and sun damage it is extremely important that you remain out of the sun prior to and after the treatments. A number of treatments the address pigmentation are better served in a series of treatments, so starting them in the winter months is the safest option for optimal results!

There are some truly amazing options when it comes to treatments for the body with major advancements in recent years. One of our patients favorites is the latest evolution of CoolSculpting, CoolSculpting Elite. Providing the ability to achieve better results sooner AND with the ability to treat multiple areas at the same time.

There are a number of areas that we can treat with CoolSculpting Elite including: abdomen, love handles, inner and outer thighs, arms, chin, inner bra fat, posterior bra fat, and banana rolls! If you are interested, we also offer complimentary consults where our experts will determine if you are a good candidate and breakdown the pricing and procedure process for you before scheduling. The results for CoolsSulpting Elite take about three months to see, so schedule your appointment ahead of bathing suit season!

One of best kept secrets is CoolTone by CoolSculpting. CoolTone offers individuals a treatment that strengthens, lifts, and defines the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. CoolTone uses magnetic muscle stimulation technology to penetrate through the skin and fat layers to target only the muscle layer. CoolTone™ works to strengthen these muscles, and therefore works best for patients who are already in shape, but are looking for a little extra definition, not a weight loss solution. Just as your muscle definition will fade if you stop working out for a few weeks, CoolTone™ requires maintenance! The initial treatment is usually two sessions per week for two weeks, and the frequency of your maintenance sessions afterward will be determined by your treatment plan and goals.
