Customized treatment plans for individual patients using the latest techniques and technology make it possible to successfully compensate for thinning hair or baldness. In a hair transplant, skin containing hair is taken from the back of the scalp and placed in tiny holes in the bald or thinned area. The grafted hair falls out after the procedure but then grows back and should last as long as the hair from the area in which it was taken.
Sclerotherapy is the standard treatment for spider veins of the legs. The procedure involves injecting a sclerosing solution through a tiny needle into the weakened vein, which then collapses and is absorbed by the body. By the end of the treatment program, the veins are less visible on the skin surface. Newer techniques used by the physicians at South Nassau Dermatology are less painful than previous sclerotherapy treatments and may involve fewer treatments.
Microdermabrasion improves mild to moderate sun damage, scarring, wrinkles and other superficial skin problems. A gentle stream of tiny particles exfoliates the outer layer of skin and provides a fresh, glowing, younger appearance. The particles scrape away the surface layer of aging or damaged skin, which is then brushed off with the microdermabrasion vacuum tool with no need for anesthesia. Only a small amount of skin is removed, so sensitive areas such as the face, chest, neck, arms and hands can be treated. Results are comparable to a light chemical peel and should be immediately visible.
Chemical peels remove damaged outer layers of skin on the face to smooth texture, reduce scarring, and remove blemishes and pre-cancerous growths to produce healthy, glowing skin. Peel formulas and strengths are tailored to each patient. Peels can be combined with other procedures such as facelifts for a younger look.
We offer a variety of strength of peels based on your desired results, including glycolic acid, Jessner's, and trichloracetic acid (TCA).
