Medical Spa Q & A

What kind of cosmetic skin care treatments are available?

Ohio Dermatology Center offers a variety of skin care treatments for cosmetic purposes. If you have fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, dry skin, or rough skin, a cosmetic skin treatment can help you look better while also improving your skin health. 

Some of the many options include:

Microneedling

Microneedling involves tiny, controlled skin punctures. These stimulate new collagen and elastin growth in your deeper skin layers. 

Microneedling can smooth your skin, minimize the appearance of scarring, and reduce wrinkles.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment

PRP treatment involves using your own blood platelets to stimulate skin renewal and collagen growth. It essentially supercharges your skin’s natural renewal process to bring on smoother, younger skin.

Chemical peels

Chemical peels are acids that slough the dead and damaged top skin layers. Deep peels also affect the middle and deeper skin layers but involve more recovery time.

Skin care facials

Skin care facials are topical treatments targeted for oil, dryness, acne, and other issues.

Laser treatments

Laser treatment with the CO2 laser can target all layers of skin to resurface and rejuvenate your skin. This laser offers fresh, young skin without the long downtime needed for most resurfacing treatments. 

Ohio Dermatology Center also offers supplements and home skin care products that can maximize the benefits and extend the longevity of the in-office treatments. 

What kind of skin care treatments help with spider veins?

If you have spider veins on your face or in other areas, there are a few options for easy and quick removal. Ohio Dermatology Center offers sclerotherapy, an injectable treatment that irritates the vein and makes it shrink away. 

A laser treatment is another way to address vascular lesions. Lasers target the unwanted blood vessel precisely and heat it to trigger withering.

What kind of skin care can treat acne scars?

There are a few options for acne scarring, including CO2 laser resurfacing and microneedling. 

If you have depressed acne scars, such as boxcar scarring, subcision might be a good treatment option. 

In this procedure, Dr. Ravitskiy uses a slender needle to detach the scar from the tissue beneath it so the skin smooths out and looks more even. While technically a surgery, subcision doesn’t involve any blades.
