 5 Cosmetic Dermatology Treatments to Improve Skin Appearance Without Makeup

There’s nothing like feeling confident in your own skin. By embracing your natural beauty and nurturing your skin, you can feel your best without makeup. Here are some cosmetic dermatology treatments that can reveal your skin’s true radiance.

Chemical Peels

If your skin looks dull and tired, a chemical peel can restore a natural glow to your face. During this treatment, your dermatologist will apply a chemical solution to the skin. After leaving it on for a certain amount of time, they will neutralize and remove it. The process removes the outer layer of the skin, revealing a bright and younger-looking appearance.

This treatment can help with issues like facial creases and lines, pigmentation irregularities, acne, mild scarring, and sun damage. You will likely need to visit your doctor every six to eight weeks to sustain the results of this treatment.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are substances that your dermatologist injects into the skin. The goal is to restore facial volume, which can smooth out lines and wrinkles. Many dermal fillers are made with hyaluronic acid, but there are a number of synthetic options as well.

If you’re experiencing lines and reduced facial volume around the eyes, mouth, cheeks, cheeks, temples, and chin, your dermatologist may recommend this treatment. These injections can also be used to improve face symmetry. However, while these injections can improve skin appearance overall, they won’t deliver drastic results like a face lift or brow lift.

Light Therapy

This treatment can reduce the symptoms of several conditions. Your dermatologist may recommend light therapy if you're experiencing psoriasis, eczema, rashes, or vitiligo. There are several types of light therapy that your dermatologist might use to treat your condition. For example, narrowband UVB light therapy is a treatment for psoriasis, as it slows down rapid skin cell growth.

Laser Therapy

Patients looking to generally improve the appearance of the skin and reduce signs of aging may benefit from laser therapy. This type of therapy works in several ways, depending on the specific technique that your cosmetic dermatologist uses. Dermal Optical Thermolysis (DOT) therapy, for example, creates thousands of microscopic holes in the skin, encouraging the skin to heal and have a smoother surface.

Other less invasive laser treatments target the inner dermal layers to resurface the tissues, improving the appearance of broken blood vessels, general pigmentation, crows feet, aging spots, and scarring. There are also high frequency lasers to kill bacteria and improve acne. Your dermatologist will go over all of your laser therapy options, as well as potential side effects.


HydraFacials by HydraFacial MD® are some of the most popular cosmetic dermatology procedures available today. If you’re looking to cleanse and exfoliate the skin for a more radiant appearance, this treatment is certainly worth a try. You’ll likely be hooked after just one 30-minute treatment.

This facial removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities, which can have a variety of positive effects. You might experience more skin elasticity, reduced fine lines and wrinkles, less skin congestion, less hyperpigmentation, and improved skin texture.
