Customized Care for Youthful, Glowing Skin

The key to a youthful glow is beautiful skin. The skin is the largest organ of the body, and possibly the organ that we mistreat the most. Over the years, our skin weakens, loosens, and wrinkles due to genetics, gravity, and sun damage. Fortunately, there are ways to address all of these issues with topical remedies and nonsurgical procedures.

As a certified pacific plastic surgery in santa barbara, skin treatments are one of my primary specialties. A general physician will simply diagnose a skin condition and offer up a treatment without much care or consideration for how that treatment will affect the ultimate appearance of the skin. As both an M.D. and a plastic surgeon in Santa Barbara, I have the ability to not only diagnose skin conditions, but provide treatments that focus on the whole person, creating results that are beautiful and personal.

Correcting Sun Damage, Wrinkles, and More

Thanks to years of extensive training, I am able to provide both men and women in Santa Barbara with skin treatments customized to their age, activity level, and personal wishes. Whether your skin has been damaged by the sun, you’re struggling with crow’s feet, or you have scarring from a skin condition, I can work with you to create a custom treatment plan that leaves you feeling more youthful, healthy, and beautiful.

There are a number of different options for rejuvenating the skin, which include pharmacological products, injectables, and laser treatments. If you’re seeking Botox in Santa Barbara, you may be surprised to learn that there are a wide variety of other options which could be more effective for your particular skin. In order to find the right treatment for you, it’s important to work with a board certified plastic surgeon in Santa Barbara who will take the time to answer your questions, assess your skin, and provide you with a personalized treatment plan.

One remedy that many of my Santa Barbara patients have benefited from is a laser skin treatment called Active FX. This treatment uses a CO2 laser to stimulate the formation of new collagen underneath the skin. The procedure can be done with minimal downtime and can help reduce pore size, minimize fine lines and wrinkles, eliminate brown spots, improve skin texture, and help skin feel firmer and more youthful.

Of course, the key to keeping your skin looking young and healthy is regular care, which is why I also frequently prescribe pharmacological remedies to help keep skin feeling supple, hydrated, and free of unwanted pigmentation.
