Cosmetic ProceduresIs your skin changing? Would you like to look refreshed and younger? Then, visit the offices of Dr. Lisa Silbert and Dr. Alan Schechter, your cosmetic dermatologists in Manalpan, NJ. They serve many people just like you who wish to have healthier, more vibrant facial aesthetics. Learn here about some of the cosmetic dermatology procedures they offer.

The goal of cosmetic dermatology

It's to help you look and feel your best. Dr. Silbert and Dr. Schechter approach each individual with a kind, listening attitude so they understand why he or she wants to make some aesthetic changes.

Most often, people do not want or need reconstruction. Rather, they wish to renew their facial appearance, limiting:

  • Signs of aging
  • Scarring, particularly from acne
  • Remove skin tags and sun spots
  • Reduce changes in skin pigment from aging and sun exposure
  • Tighten sagging skin
  • Smooth lines and wrinkles

While diet, weight fluctuations, aging, and smoking impact the texture, color, and appearance of the face, some changes are beyond the patient's control. Self-image and confidence decline. But, with help from a Manalapan cosmetic dermatologist, patients achieve the boost they need with little to no discomfort or downtime.

Offered cosmetic procedures

After a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Silbert or Dr. Schechter, you will receive a personalized plan which addresses the concerns you have about your skin. It may include specialized skin care products and at-home routines to boost your skin's vitality.

The physicians also may advise one or more of the following procedures. They are among the most common and effective used by board-certified dermatologists across the country. They include BOTOX Cosmetic, dermal fillers, such as Juvederm and Restylane, laser skin treatments and chemical peels. Together, you and your doctor will decide which ones are best for you.

Details on the procedures

What is BOTOX Cosmetic?
 BOTOX is an FDA-approved, injectable form of the botulism toxin. Placed with a fine needle under the skin, BOTOX minimizes movement of muscles which create dynamic wrinkling. These creases form from frowning, laughing, and smiling. Injections are comfortable, take immediate effect and last four to six months.

What are dermal fillers? Restylane and Juvederm are FDA-approved forms of hyaluronic acid, a naturally-derived substance which stimulates the body's own collagen. The doctor puts these fillers into areas which have deeper wrinkles and folds from aging and sun exposure (around the eyes, nose, and mouth). Effects last for months.

What are IRIDERM laser treatments? Your dermatologist uses focused beams of light to break up spots of hyperpigmentation, clusters of capillaries caused by rosacea, to smooth scarring from accident, surgery, acne, and more.

What are chemical peels? These in-office treatments apply glycolic acid to mottled pigmentation, scars, wrinkles, or lines. The preparation sets up for several minutes and then is neutralized by a special chemical to reveal pinker, younger-looking skin.
