Common Myths about Cosmetic DermatologyIn today’s world, everyone wants to look as youthful and vibrant for as long as possible. For many people, cosmetic dermatology procedures are often a way of combating common aging concerns, such as wrinkles, crow’s feet, and frown lines. Cosmetic dermatology treatments can also help improve a patient’s appearance, following damage caused by factors such as the sun, or acne.

Even with the high-demand for cosmetic dermatology procedures, there are still many misconceptions among patients about individual procedures. Let’s take a closer look at some of the most common myths associated with cosmetic dermatology.


Common Myths about Cosmetic Dermatology.

  1. BOTOX® makes your face look frozen. Even though BOTOX helps correct the appearance of deep wrinkles, many patients are still reluctant to receive it because they think it will leave their face looking unnatural or frozen. This is only true if you are receiving treatment from a doctor unfamiliar or inexperienced with the procedure. When done properly, the treatment can be enormously beneficial, providing patients with a youthful, natural-looking, and refreshed appearance.
  2. Only women seek cosmetic dermatology procedures. Many believe that only women worry about visible signs of aging. However, more men than ever before are turning to cosmetic dermatology treatments to improve their appearance! Treatments commonly sought by men include tumescent liposuction, BOTOX, and chemical peels.
  3. Chemical peels are painful. Many people find the idea of chemical peels to be intimidating, however, chemical peels are one of the least invasive ways of treating skin issues. Chemical peels enhance the appearance of a person’s skin by carefully removing damaged outer layers of skin, repairing skin damage and reversing issues like wrinkles. Chemical peels can result in some discomfort following the procedure, though they are not usually painful.
  4. Liposuction is not performed by a dermatologist. When you think of dermatologists, many generally don’t think of liposuction being something they performed. However, minimally-invasive tumescent liposuction is offered by many practices. This procedure tackles stubborn body fat that is highly-resistant to diet or exercise.
