If you are noticing an unwelcome change in the condition of your skin, you may be considering a visit to a dermatologist. Virginia residents deal with many of the same skin problems as the rest of the country, including the presence of moles, scars, and wrinkles. Not every dermatologist offers the same treatments and procedures. At RidgeView Dermatology, we proudly offer a number of services, and we have three different locations in Virginia.
Laser Skin Treatments
Lasers have exploded in popularity in recent years, thanks to the stunning advancements made in the field. Unwanted skin can be easily removed with the precision offered by lasers without damaging neighboring skin tissue. This results in less unnecessary skin damage and downtime. Laser skin treatments at Aesthetics by RidgeView Dermatology in Forest, Virginia work by removing a precise amount of the outer skin. This forces your body into replacing that old skin with new skin. The treatment is helpful in minimizing the appearance of scars, wrinkles, and other blemishes.
If you are getting older or have recently lost a significant amount of weight, you have likely noticed some facial changes. These changes can cause you to appear tired or haggard. Treatment with dermal fillers at Aesthetics by RidgeView Dermatology in Virginia is a non-surgical way to restore lost facial volume safely and effectively.
The procedure is extremely fast and simple. We inject a gel containing a product that will help replace the hyaluronic acid that you have lost due to the aging process or environment, as well as weight loss. Once underneath your skin, the filler will immediately restore the volume, smoothing away fine lines and wrinkles.
Although dermal fillers are highly effective, you must remember that their results are not permanent. You will need to return to our office in Forest, Virginia periodically for more treatments in order to maintain your results. Our dermatologist can provide you with more information regarding filler treatments during a consultation.
Skin Cancer Screening
Melanoma is the most deadly form of skin cancer. Although it kills thousands of people annually, it is highly treatable when detected early. If you have noticed a recent change in a mole, such as an increase in size or a different color, you should schedule a skin cancer screening at our office in Lynchburg or Smith Mountain Lake immediately to rule out this serious disease.
