The goal of cosmetic dermatology is to restore skin to a natural, more youthful appearance.
The human eye and brain are extraordinarily adept at picking up on abnormal and asymmetric facial features in others. As an example, think of the last person you saw with cosmetically altered lips or gigantic cheekbones from filler injection- that patient spent a lot of money to look awful.
In my Clinical practice, we love to see patients wearing much less makeup and feeling wonderful after procedures like laser resurfacing, microdermabrasion and chemical peels.
A layer of sunscreen and a light compact application of pressed powder is all that is needed for daily make up. Remember thick layers of foundation and concealer stifles the skin and cosmetic acne results. Over application of makeup is an addiction. You break the makeup addiction. Anything more than a light application is unnatural appearing and almost always worse than wearing no makeup at all. If you suffer from sun spots, fine lines, and tired skin, dermatologists have exciting technologies that can significantly enhance your natural beauty and significantly improve whatever blemishes you’re trying to cover.
