At Valley Dermatology & Plastic Surgery our mission is to provide our patients with a natural and refreshed appearance through our comprehensive cosmetic services.
Many patients prefer a non-invasive approach to rejuvenate the skin. The best way to achieve a balanced, natural appearing and refreshed look is by using a combination of injectables, lasers and skin care. Each does something different and complementary for the aging face. When done correctly, these procedures are quick, safe and effective.
Whether a patient wishes to “turn back the clock” or simply accentuate their natural beauty, we believe this requires a well-trained physician but also keen eye for aesthetics. We are proud to say that we have both. Dr. Tyler Street, a Board-Certified plastic surgeon, and Dr. Kathryn Kent, a Board-Certified dermatologist, draw on both their extensive training in cosmetic medicine and artistic talent to provide beautiful results. Only our specialized doctors perform injections or laser treatments. At your consultation our doctors will listen and interpret your concerns to build a customized plan for you.
One of the more common concerns of our patients are lines in the forehead or next to the eyes. These lines are called “active” wrinkles because they are caused by underlying muscle movements. By using a medication to relax the muscles in these areas the appearance of the lines is softened. Patients find that treatment lightens serious looks like scowls or frowns, lessening the appearance of looking frustrated or mad.
Another indispensable tool we have to help the aging face is soft tissue filler. Filler is used to add volume to an area where a patient may have lost it over time. By replenishing the natural volume that a patient has lost during the aging process, we end up with a subtle but vibrant result. Dr. Kent and Dr. Street are practiced at placing the right amount of filler in the perfect place to rejuvenate a patient’s appearance, while not looking obvious or fake. Our fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, which is a sugar found naturally in the skin. Because of this, they are well tolerated and safe.
Treating underneath the skin with injectables is powerful but does not treat the skin surface. Lasers are state of the art devices that can treat surface irregularities and make the skin a smoother, more even tone. Examples of this include correcting redness, removing brown spots, and softening wrinkles or scars. Dr. Kent has specialized fellowship training in laser medicine and performs all treatments in our office.
Lastly, skin care products can be used to brighten the skin, reduce age related skin changes and protect the skin from environmental insults. We carry the latest, scientifically proven skin care products for our patients and only recommend quality products that our doctors have personally tested. We also offer a full range of esthetician services including facials and peels. Our esthetician and doctors work together closely to provide individualized skin care plans for our patients.
At Valley Dermatology & Plastic Surgery we are a comprehensive skin care center. We take pride in working together to combine our knowledge and skills to help you bring out the best version of yourself.
