The Dermatology Advantage

You may wonder, why go to a dermatology clinic for cosmetic skin treatments when I can go to XYZ Medispa or a hair and nail salon for less cost?
At Lumos Dermatology®, you are not just getting a cosmetic treatment.  Part of your visit includes medical evaluation and supervision.  You will also be medically evaluated to ensure suitability for a particular treatment.  If necessary, the health of your skin will be optimized first prior to any treatment.  You will also be medically supervised during and after treatment to reduce risk and manage conditions before complications arise.  This is not possible at medispas where a clinician may not be readily available.  Your skin, your health.  You deserve the best.  For these reasons, we hope you will choose Lumos Dermatology®, "Where Aesthetics is the Art of Medicine"™.

Cosmetic Dermatology Treatments

Botox

Botulinum protein (Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin) used to reduce wrinkles is a sterile and purified version of the Botulinum Toxin A. When the protein is injected into the muscle, it works to block the nerve impulses, temporarily relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles.

Kybella

KYBELLA® (deoxycholic acid) injection is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin.”

 

DERMAL FILLERS

Juvederm, Voluma, Volbella, Restylane, and Belotero are long-lasting gels that, once injected into the skin with an ultra-fine needle, lifts and adds volume to the areas being treated. Similar to one of the body's own natural substances (hyaluronic acid), it is a safe treatment.

 

Laser Hair Reduction

Laser hair reduction is a medical procedure that uses a laser to reduce hair growth permanently.  During the laser hair removal process, a laser beam passes through the skin to an individual hair follicle. The intense heat of the laser damages the hair follicle, which inhibits future hair growth. LEARN MORE
