AESTHETIC SERVICES

CHEMICAL PEELS

At Garden State Dermatology we offer chemical peeling, a non-invasive procedure use to improve various conditions including acne, acne scarring, and pigmentation. Salicylic acid, glycolic acid and trichloroacetic acid are used in various strengths to cause controlled injury of the skin. The resulting wound healing processes begin to regenerate new skin cells giving a smooth and refreshed skin.

FACIALS

We specialize in facials using Dermalinfusion, a patented non-invasive 3-in-1 dermatological treatment that simultaneously exfoliates, extracts and infuses skin with condition specific serums for an all-inclusive treatment in one step. This treatment volumizes skin by 70% and visibly reduces fine lines and wrinkles. It is indicated for hyperpigmentation from acne, dark spots, sun damage and general rejuvenation of the face. A series of treatments throughout the year are required to the maintain desired results.

MICRONEEDLING WITH PRP

Dr. Ramaswamy performs Skin needling, also called micro-needling to treat acne scaring, pigmentation and to rejuvenate the skin.  Skin needling is a minimally-invasive therapy that involves repeated puncturing of the skin with tiny sterile needles. The depth of needle into the skin can be controlled depending on the condition treated. The punctures created by the needles stimulate collagen and other growth factors necessary for skin rejuvenation. Microneedling has minimal side effects and can be used safely in patients with patients with melasma and darker skin types.

She also performs Micro-needling with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments which is a therapy that utilizes a patient’s own blood to stimulate growth of new collagen in the skin. Microneedling with PRP is often used for the treatment of genetic hair loss and acne scarring.

SUBCISION FOR ACNE SCARS

For stubborn acne and surgical scars subcision, a minor surgical procedure is used for treating depressed scars and wrinkles. This procedure is performed using a special hypodermic needle which is inserted through a puncture in the skin surface. The sharp edge of the needle is used to break fibrotic strands that are tethering the scar to the underlying tissue. The release of the fibrotic strands and new collagen deposition caused by wound healing leads to cosmetic improvement of the scar.
