As our skin thins over time, it more easily creases with muscle movement. Our treatments prevent wrinkles because they lessen this movement. With injections, these toxins block the muscles. When the muscle stops contracting, the skin stops bending.
Injectable fillers help restore volume in the skin, which can reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles that come with age. Injectable fillers have also been used to make thin lips fuller, correct acne scars, and make the areas under the eyes less dark or puffy.
Skin Care Screenings
Skin cancer doesn’t discriminate. Anyone can get skin cancer, whether young or old, fair or dark, and it’s the most common type of cancer in the United States. Most people should have a professional skin examination once a year.
Skin excision is a surgery where we cut out damaged skin tissue. It is a full-thickness removal — meaning we remove all layers of the tissue (epidermis, dermis, and into the subcutaneous fat layer). We then suture it back together with stitches for optimal healing.
Lasers (IPL, Fractional Lasers, HALO® Lasers, Red Light, Blue Light)
The Icon Laser Scar Treatment is non-ablative, meaning it doesn’t cut the skin. This laser generates columns of heat that go under the deep dermis to cause inflammation. The remaining tissue produces collagen and elastin which work to heal the skin.
Body Contouring (CoolSculpting®, EMSculpt®, SculpSure®, etc)
Body contouring improves the contour of the body by heating, freezing, or applying energy to targeted areas. Using non-invasive devices, we can remove fat, tone muscle, and tighten the skin to enhance the overall body contour appearance.
Acne can have a big impact on your life, which is why we take acne treatment very seriously and use aggressive treatment plans when necessary. Our staff is passionate about treating acne to prevent the emotional and physical scars that can last a lifetime.
Moles are the most common skin growth and there are several reasons to have them removed or checked. Moles that appear to be changing or any new moles after age 30 should be checked by our team. Early detection of melanoma is critical.
Sculptra® and Sculptra® Aesthetic Injections
While the results of other dermal fillers are more immediate, the results of Sculptra Aesthetic are seen over time. As collagen is reinforced, volume to the face and chin is slowly restored, giving patients a more aesthetically subtle treatment option.
Epiphany Dermatology treats fungal infections of the skin, as well as fungal infections in hair and nails. Often, these infections appear as itchy, scaley, rashes on the skin. We can typically diagnose fungal infections immediately by their characteristic appearance.
Dry skin is a very common, benign condition of the skin. Occasionally dry skin can progress to inflammation of the skin (dermatitis). In this case, you may want to visit your dermatologist to discuss treatments that can help improve your symptoms.
Warts are non-cancerous skin growths that appear when a virus infects the top layer of skin. Although they aren’t dangerous, they are contagious. As with any noticeable change in your skin, it’s best to consult our team, so we can provide treatment options.
Sun spots are light brown to tan spots that appear on the skin and are usually from sun exposure. The most common body areas affected are the face, shoulders, arms, and hands. They are usually benign, however, skin cancer can develop a lesion.
