Spring may be here, but you wouldn’t know it by looking at your winter-worn skin. The harsh winter climate can take its toll on your complexion, resulting in dry skin, uneven texture and tone and other significant skin issues. If you are ready to brighten your look for the new season, Dr. Sherman has a number of options in reconstructive skin repair to rejuvenate your skin and refresh your appearance. With many choices to consider, you are sure to find the treatment that fits your needs and desired results perfectly.

Repairing the Damage

The skin is the largest organ of the body and one of the most vulnerable to damage. Sun exposure, cold temperatures and even the simple passage of time can leave their marks. Some of the damage you might see includes:

  • Fine lines and facial wrinkles
  • Dull, uneven skin tone
  • Hyperpigmentation, including brown spots, freckles and melasma
  • Shallow scarring from acne or chicken pox
  • Skin laxity

No matter what your skin concern might be, Dr. Sherman can help you address it using one of his safe and effective skin rejuvenation techniques.

Choices in Reconstructive Skin Repair

Dr. Sherman offers the following skin repair treatments at his Manhattan office:

Laser Peel – This procedure uses laser energy to remove outer layers of skin cells, revealing softer, smoother skin underneath. A laser peel can be customized to your specific needs, with deeper peels offering more dramatic, long-lasting results. Lighter peels can be used to refresh the complexion without discomfort or downtime. After discussing your concerns and cosmetic goals, Dr. Sherman will help you determine the best laser peel for you.

Chemical Peels – Chemical peels offer the same exfoliating benefits of a laser peel, but use chemical solutions instead of laser technology to achieve their results. There are many different types of chemical peels available, which allow us to select the formulation that will work best with your specific skin type and condition. Chemical peels also come in a variety of depths, with lighter peels offering more superficial results without downtime and deeper peels providing dramatic results that can last for many years.

Injectable TreatmentsDermal fillers and Botox injections can be used to address specific signs of aging like facial creases and loss of facial volume. Botox is specifically designed to relax wrinkles on the upper portion of the face while dermal fillers are better suited to creases around the nose, mouth and chin. Some formulations are now smooth enough to provide youthful volume in areas like the cheeks, under the eyes and along the jawline as well, addressing mild facial laxity and creating a rejuvenated facial profile.

Scar Repair – Dr. Sherman also provides scar repair for patients that are self-conscious about residual scarring from acne, chickenpox, injury and surgery. Different types of scars will require different treatment techniques to produce the best results. Dr. Sherman is experienced in a variety of techniques to help his patients achieve smoother, clearer skin.

Spring has arrived, but if you are not feeling the season due to dull, damaged winter skin, a rejuvenation procedure may be the solution. Contact Dr. Sherman’s office today at (212) 535-2300 to find out which skin treatment is the right choice for you.
