Spring Treatments You Can Start Now

Spring is coming! It is a time to shed the old and bring in the new. Now is the perfect opportunity to refresh, rejuvenate, and feel more confident. An effective treatment this season will keep you looking and feeling your best throughout the rest of the year.

Dr. Glenn Goldberg is a board-certified cosmetic, medical, and surgical dermatologist located in Laguna Beach, California. He has the expertise, experience, and treatment options to help you address all of your aesthetic concerns. From quick injectable treatments, to laser resurfacing and vein procedures, our skin care clinic is ready to help you look and feel your best through every season of life. 

Rejuvenate the Skin and Address Early Aging Symptoms

Refresh and rejuvenate your skin with RF microneedling, a non-surgical, minimally-invasive procedure that treats certain types of skin concerns. The radiofrequency energy combines with the microneedling process to deliver gentle heating deep into the dermal structure. The heat energy stimulates the body’s natural collagen and healing processes, creating more youthful skin from the inside out. 

Specific concerns treated with RF microneedling include: 

  • Fine lines and other early signs of aging
  • Some types of scarring, including acne scarring
  • Dull skin tone
  • Irregular skin texture
  • Mild skin sagging in the midface and along the jawline

At Coast Dermatology & Laser Surgery Center, we use the Infini device for our RF microneedling procedures. This treatment is safe for most skin types and tones and works well for men and women of all ages. The procedure is relatively comfortable and requires little or no downtime afterward. Patients will see skin improve in the weeks following treatment, which can be long-lasting in many cases.

Reverse Advanced Aging Symptoms

If you are noticing more advanced signs of aging, laser resurfacing may be a better option to turn back the clock on your appearance. Laser treatments use a single wavelength of light to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, sun damage, and some types of scarring. Treatments at our skin care clinic can be customized to your precise needs and goals to create a beautiful, natural result. 

Laser resurfacing can address the following: 

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Age spots and other hyperpigmentation
  • Acne scarring
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Sun damage 
  • Enlarged pores 
  • Skin that has lost its luster

The UltraPulse Fractional CO2 laser creates micro-channels in the skin to stimulate the body’s own healing process and boost collagen production. At the same time, this device precisely removes the outermost layer of dermis, revealing softer, smoother skin below.

The depth of the treatment will depend on the severity of your concerns and the goals you hope to achieve. Deeper treatments offer more dramatic improvement but also require some downtime afterward.

Remove Visible Veins on the Face and Legs

Visible veins on your face can affect your confidence in your appearance, while leg veins can make you anxious about the shorts weather that lies ahead. Luckily, there are treatments and procedures that may reduce the appearance of these veins before those beach days arrive.

The VariLite laser is a device we use to address many visible facial veins. It is a precisely controlled laser that targets the blood inside the veins, without damaging surrounding skin and tissue. The vein treatment coagulates the vessel so it can be reabsorbed by the body. Veins disappear over time, leaving you with clearer skin. 

We often treat spider and varicose veins on the legs with an injectable treatment known as sclerotherapy. This procedure delivers a sclerosing agent into the visible vessel, which causes it to collapse so it can be reabsorbed by the body. Some patients require more than one treatment to get full results, but once the vein is gone, it is gone for good. 

Relax Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Neuromodulators, such as Botox Cosmetic, are safe and effective for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This treatment works best for dynamic wrinkles, which occur as a result of repeated facial expressions. The treatment relaxes the muscles that lead to the formation of the lines, smoothing away the wrinkles in the process. 

Common treatment areas for neuromodulators include: 

  • Horizontal forehead lines
  • Glabellar (frown) lines
  • Crow’s feet in the outer corners of the eyes
  • Bunny lines at the top of the nose
  • Perioral lines that appear above the upper lip
  • Chin wrinkles
  • Horizontal banding on the neck

Neuromodulators are quick and comfortable and results develop within 1-2 weeks. Improvements last 3-4 months, but we can create a treatment schedule to ensure you keep your smoother look indefinitely.
