MetroDerm, P.C. performs a variety of surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures to fight the effects of aging. After discussing your concerns and evaluating your personal situation, we will recommend the treatment that best suits your needs.
Surgical Cosmetic Procedures
Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery or an eye lift, is a cosmetic procedure that removes excess tissue or fat from the upper or lower eyelids, eliminating any sag in the upper eyelids or bagginess in the lower eyelids. This procedure is performed in our office under local anesthesia and usually takes about one to three hours, depending on whether both upper and lower eyelids are being corrected.
Dr. Papadopoulos has significant experience in eyelid reconstruction due to his numerous skin cancer surgeries.
Dermabrasion is a method of renewing the skin’s surface and producing a smoother, more naturally textured and pigmented surface. Dermabrasion has the potential to repair or help conceal many kinds of skin defects — particularly wrinkles, sun damage, excessive pigmentation, or scars from accidents, acne, or previous surgery. The procedure employs a diamond-tipped, rotary instrument which removes or abrades the existing upper layer of skin in a precise manner. Dermabrasion is performed in our office under local anesthesia. Patients may be prescribed medications to help with tenderness after the procedure. Healing typically occurs within about a week. This procedure is performed by Dr. Papadopoulos.
Non-Surgical Cosmetic Procedures
Injectable dermal fillers provide a non-invasive and relatively inexpensive way to rejuvenate your face by lessening the appearance of lines and wrinkles. MetroDerm, P.C. offers patients a variety of injectable/filler treatment options including:
- BOTOX®, a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate-to-severe lines between the eyebrows and on the forehead in people 18-65. Effects last up to four months.
- Juvederm® and Restylane®, gel fillers that instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose for up to a year. These fillers can correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Both may also be used for lip enhancement.
- Radiesse®, a wrinkle-reducing filler that replenishes lost volume and stimulates the production of your facial skin’s natural collagen. Results may last a year or more.
MetroDerm, P.C. offers Salicylic Acid, Jessner and Melange chemical peels to treat acne, fine wrinkles, minor skin discoloration and sun damage.
Microdermabrasion is another commonly used and effective technique to refresh the skin’s outer layer. It can repair skin damage from sun, scars, acne and aging. The procedure is performed by a professional with a machine that removes the top layer of skin using gentle abrasion and suction.
MetroDerm, P.C. uses the advanced DermaSweep machine which sweeps away the dead top layer of skin as it exfoliates and vacuums the skin. This sweeping feature eliminates the discomfort caused by other microderm machines that rely on crystals to remove dead skin.
DermaSweep treatment is quick and painless.
