Top Ten Things a Cosmetic Dermatologist Can Do for You
Posted Nov 25 2012 12:13pm
We all know that your face is the first thing other people see and, like it or not, most people really do judge a book by its cover. If you are one of the many people that have issues with your skin, either major or minor, you may want to consider availing yourself of the services provided by a cosmetic dermatologist to correct them. In this blog post we’ll briefly explore the top ten benefits of addressing these issues with the help of an experienced cosmetic dermatologist.
1. Do Something for YOU
This is listed at number one for a very good reason. The most important benefit of cosmetic dermatology is the resulting boost to your self-esteem and self-image. When you feel self-conscious about your skin it can manifest as a tendency to avoid drawing attention to yourself which can take a toll on all facets of your life, including socially and professionally. When you’re comfortable in your own skin (see what I did there?) you exude confidence and a willingness to be approached. Your cosmetic dermatologist can assist you with gaining a peace with your appearance you never dreamed possible.
2. Increase Your Confidence Professionally
As touched upon above, one of the most obvious and important benefits of addressing problem areas with a cosmetic dermatologist is the meteoric rise in your self-image, which then translates to greater success in your professional life. When you know you look good you feel capable and confident, and your co-workers and superiors are sure to notice.
3. Become a Social Butterfly
It bears repeating that self-confidence can not only make or break you in the work place, but also plays a huge role in the amount, and more importantly the quality, of your social interactions. Especially in the dating world, it’s hard to come off as a swan when you relate much better to the ugly duckling. When you feel comfortable with your appearance you’re naturally more open to social intercourse that can lead – anywhere.
4. Pamper Yourself with a Facial
There is nothing quite like a facial treatment administered by seasoned professionals using quality products in a calm and relaxing atmosphere. Your cosmetic dermatologist will first thoroughly clean and then gently exfoliate your skin in a manner tailored specifically to you and you alone. It’s a great pick-me-up for both your skin and your psyche.
5. Enhance Your Weight Loss Triumph
Congrats – you’ve finally shed all that unhealthy and unwanted extra poundage! On the down side, your tummy very likely now hangs to your knees because of excess skin due to your weight loss. Consider talking to a cosmetic dermatologist about liposuction to eradicate this problem. Liposuction is safer and less invasive than ever, so why not consider this your final step toward the body you’ve worked so hard to create?
6. Ditch the Acne for Good
They always said we’d outgrow it, but that’s not necessarily always the case. Acne isn’t just unsightly, it can also be very painful and cause permanent scarring of your skin as well as being the cause of undue psychological trauma. Let an experienced cosmetic dermatologist create a treatment plan specifically for your needs so you can pack your acne away with other best forgotten items from your past – like your prom picture.
7. Get a Leg Up
As people age, the tendency to develop spider veins or varicose veins increases. These damaged capillaries and veins can be uncomfortable to downright painful, as well as visually unappealing. This discomfort can lead to the sufferer decreasing their mobility, be it consciously or unconsciously, which in turn sets off a chain reaction of other negative health issues. Fortunately, a cosmetic dermatologist can help assure you many years of high kicking ahead.
8. Erase the Evidence of Questionable Fashion Choices
Just the mere act of piercing an earlobe is enough to put you at risk for a tear. It happens more than you think, and heavy, clunky earrings are usually accessories to this crime. But fear not fashionistas. This is a relatively easy fix for a cosmetic dermatologist, so your past sins can be out of sight and out of mind.
9. A Sip From the Fountain of Youth
Facial fillers such as Botox and Juvederm have helped countless people flip an obscene gesture at gravity with these minimally invasive yet highly effective procedures. What’s not to love?
10. Because You’ll Never Tan with Baby Oil Again. Really.
Seriously – What were we thinking? Luckily, a cosmetic dermatologist can offer various treatments and techniques to treat sun damaged skin probably obtained while semi-comatose on a beach towel listening to bad music way too loud on headphones.
