Skin Treatments by a Leading Surgeon
Healthy-looking skin free of imperfections is a hallmark of youth and beauty, and advancements in skin treatments have made it easier than ever to look your best. Dr. Fredric Newman offers a variety of skin treatments at our Darien, CT, practice, from laser resurfacing to professional-grade products for everyday use. Dr. Newman performs several of the treatments himself. During a consultation, Dr. Newman can determine which treatments can help you achieve your goals.
Laser Skin Treatments
Laser treatments can provide dramatic skin rejuvenation. Dr. Newman performs periorbital (around the eyes) and full-face resurfacing. Our fractionated erbium laser spurs the natural healing response of the skin to address fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, age spots, and other imperfections. After just one treatment, patients can expect glowing, more evenly toned skin with a boost in youthful volume. We also provide laser therapy to reduce scarring, remove hair, and reduce stretch marks.
Laser treatment performed by a trained plastic surgeon can ensure the best results.
Dr. Newman also administers our injectable treatments. He was one of the first doctors in the country to use collagen injections in the early ‘80s, and also trained colleagues in the use of injectables.
We offer a comprehensive range of options, including BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport®, which are designed to relax the muscles that cause crows' feet, the 11s (parallel lines between the brows), and other signs of aging. Our dermal fillers like Sculptra® Aesthetic, JUVÉDERM®, Radiesse®, and BELOTERO BALANCE® restore volume in areas that have become sunken due to aging, and can also soften deep lines. Injectable treatments can improve the appearance of the forehead, eyes, cheeks, chin, and lips.
Non-surgical Skin Rejuvenation
If your skin is affected by sun damage, darkly pigmented areas, or excessive redness, an IPL photofacial can achieve more evenly toned skin. The treatment, which uses lasers to penetrate the skin and spur collagen production, can also improve overall skin texture and the appearance of fine lines. Although it is most often used on the face, patients can also benefit from treatment of the chest, neck, and backs of the hands. IPL photofacials are gentle on the skin, and require no downtime.
Microdermabrasion is a popular method to smooth and soften the skin. By exfoliating the skin, microdermabrasion can reduce acne, stretch marks, sun damage, and wrinkles. During treatment, aluminum oxide crystals are used to remove the upper layers of the skin and stimulate cell turnover. The non-invasive procedure requires no recovery time and can be repeated during ongoing sessions to maintain your results.
