The professionally trained staff at the Colorado Dermatology Institute is pleased to offer you a variety of cosmetic services which enjoy a history of excellent results, robust safety profiles, and the unparalleled integrity dermatology training brings to this field!
Below are some of the services we provide:
Botox is a generic term for Botulinum Toxin (Type A), which is used in an FDA-approved treatment in cosmetic dermatology for reducing wrinkles around the eyes, excessive blinking, and “frown lines” on the face. When undergoing Botox treatment, a patient’s facial muscles are injected with Botox to weaken the muscle and reduce spasticity.
We offer Botox treatment to our patients, so contact our office and see if you’re a candidate today. Skilled and certified dermatology is the best route for Botox procedures.
During a chemical peel, chemical solutions of varying strengths are carefully brushed onto the skin. During your Dermatologist visit, the chemicals remove skin cells on the surface of the skin and stimulate the production of new skin cells below. This leaves the skin smoother, less wrinkled, and more youthful in appearance.
Radiesse is the next generation in wrinkle correction from the Colorado Dermatology Institute. It works with your body, below the skin’s surface and stimulates the growth of your own collagen. Radiesse does more than temporarily fill-in facial folds and wrinkles – it rebuilds your skin’s foundation and restores your youthful look. Call us for more information on Radiesse!
Restylane smooths out folds and wrinkles and increases lip volume by adding a material that is naturally produced in the body. The result are instantaneous and gives a long-lasting and natural enhancement. It is gentle and safe. It contains no animal or human by-products. Call us for more information!
As part of our commitment at Colorado Dermatology Institute to Helping You Become Comfortable in Your Skin®, we offer treatment with an Intense Pulse Light (IPL) device that is used to lessen the appearance of “sun spots,” which give your skin an uneven tone.
The IPL is also effective for those small broken blood vessels that can be so annoying. An IPL is a non-laser medical device which delivers a series of gentle pulses of visible light onto the surface of your skin. Our specially trained medical aesthetician focuses the light from the IPL on the area needing attention, which agitates and damages the pigmentation, which is what you see as “sun spots.” Once the pigment is agitated, the body sends in its natural repair mechanism to absorb the damaged cells. The pigmented spots that have been treated will get darker and begin to move to the surface of the skin, and then they exfoliate off, which leaves your skin with a more even tone.
The procedure is non-invasive and fairly painless – it feels like a rubber band snap. It takes anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour per treatment, depending on the area needing treatment. At Colorado Dermatology Institute, the areas we cover are the hands, chest and face. When you leave the clinic, you will be slightly pink, and this should last about 3 hours. For best results, patients need about 3-5 treatments at 4 week intervals. The patient should call and schedule a free consultation with our medical aesthetician to find out if they are a good candidate for this type of procedure, and also to get an assessment of how many treatments would be needed for maximum benefit.
Latisse® is the first and only FDA-approved treatment that grows lashes longer, fuller and darker. Call us for more information!
Microdermabrasion is a fast, non-invasive procedure that gently resurfaces the skin. It can help improve the appearance of roughly-textured skin, fine wrinkles, superficial scars, uneven pigmentation, and age spots. It may also be used to assist in the treatment of other skin conditions, such as acne. Microdermabrasion gently removes damaged skin by “sand blasting” the top layers of the skin with tiny crystals. This removes the outermost layer of skin (“exfoliation”) and exposes the newer skin cell below. This also stimulates the growth of new skin cells below, leading to more youthful-appearing skin.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
In addition to the above treatments, we also offer DOT CO² Fractional Laser, which is a laser skin resurfacing technology designed to treat wrinkles, skin discoloration, sun spots, acne scars, and overall loosening of the skin. Because DOT laser therapy can deliver the desired outcome with minimal downtime, it is rapidly replacing traditional laser skin resurfacing as the treatment of choice for mild to moderate signs of photo damage/aging skin.
The DOT laser precisely creates thousands of microscopic holes in your skin to induce immediate skin tightening and stimulate new collagen growth. We customize the DOT procedure to your skin and adjust the laser’s setting to tailor your treatment and obtain the best result for you.
