Before Cosmetic and Skin Enhancement Treatment
Patients receive recommendations before undergoing cosmetic procedures at Penn Dermatology. Pre-treatment varies depending on the procedure.
After Cosmetic and Skin Enhancement Treatment
Penn Dermatology provides patients with state-of-the-art post-treatment care after undergoing Botox®, chemical peel, laser hair removal, laser skin resurfacing, microdermabrasion, sclerotherapy or soft-tissue fillers.
Penn dermatologists and dermatologic surgeons are experts in treating facial wrinkles using botulinum toxin A, commonly known as Botox®.
A chemical peel is a minimally invasive cosmetic technique to improve the skin's health and appearance from damage caused by overexposure to the sun or from problems related to acne and rosacea or aging skin.
Penn Dermatology offers non-surgical treatment options for the removal or reduction of unwanted facial or body hair for small or large areas of the face or body.
Laser skin resurfacing is a minimally-invasive method of removing the superficial layers of damaged or wrinkled skin.
Laser treatment is a safe, results-oriented treatment for damaged skin related to excessive sun exposure, aging, scarring and for the removal of unwanted hair.
Microdermabrasion is a skin refreshment technique that uses a mild, minimally abrasive sanding instrument to remove or exfoliate the skin's thicker and uneven outer layer.
Penn dermatologists and dermatologic surgeons provide expert sclerotherapy services for the removal of leg veins, commonly called "spider veins."
Soft tissue filler injections are treatments used to replace lost volume and rejuvenate the appearance of fatigued, sagging or aging skin.
