Aesthetic Dermatology

Aesthetic dermatology treatments can enhance your features, rejuvenate your skin, and instantly boost your confidence using a wide range of options available at RefinedMD. Four of the most popular aesthetic dermatology treatments include Botox (and other neuromodulator injections), dermal fillers, laser treatments, and body contouring treatments such as CoolSculpting or Emsculpt. Botox temporarily “freezes” overactive muscles that cause lines and wrinkles, dermal fillers restore volume to the lips, cheeks, and other areas, and CoolSculpting permanently freezes away fat while Emsculpt tones muscles by forcing them into 20,000 contractions in 30 minutes.

Facial Plastic Surgery

The skin on the face is thin, delicate, highly expressive, and often the first place to show the signs of aging. Some of the most popular facial plastic surgery procedures performed at RefinedMD include a facelift to lift and tighten the lower half of the face, as well as upper and lower eyelid lifts for instant youthfulness and rejuvenation. Facial fat transfer can be performed a number of ways to achieve optimal results, and is often used in conjunction with a facelift, eyelid lift, and more. Additionally, we offer the latest hair transplantation procedures, which use follicular unit extraction (FUE) that’s so minimally invasive there is virtually no downtime.

Medical Dermatology

Acne and other common skin ailments are often the first reason patients seek out a dermatologist—and remember that just because a skin condition is common doesn’t mean it’s “normal” or that you have to live with it. RefinedMD is home to dermatologists who can vanquish acne quickly and comfortably while also treating melasma, rosacea, and other skin complaints. The skin is your biggest organ, and just like the rest of your body it takes a medical expert to care for it.

The right evaluation and diagnosis is the first step in creating the perfect treatment plan for you that will work quickly and safely.

Remember that it’s important to know all of your options before committing to a treatment plan—and a clinic that doesn’t offer this multispecialty/multidisciplinary collaboration simply can’t give you everything. That’s why RefinedMD has a team that is multi-specialty, supportive, and collaborative with physicians and providers working together for you. We develop a deep understanding of individual needs and make recommendations based on what you need—not simply what is available.

Technology At RefinedMD – Ahead Of The Game

Not only do we cover the complete range of dermatologic services, but RefinedMD has always introduced the latest technologies to our patients before anyone else. We’re involved in the research and development of treatment protocols, and are routinely asked for recommendations from makers of new devices and technologies. Board-certified medical providers, like those at RefinedMD, are the most trusted providers for other doctors, too. When doctors need a doctor, they exclusively work with those with board certification, advanced training, and access to cutting-edge equipment.

RefinedMD offers a breath of fresh air in what can often be a chaotic medical field. We spend quality time with our patients, slow down what’s become the expected rapid pace of a clinic visit, and always put the patient first. You can also trust us with more complicated treatments or dermatologic conditions, and even unnerving post procedure complications as our breadth of knowledge and expertise puts us in unique position as a center of excellence within the fields of dermatology and facial plastic surgery.

At RefinedMD, you can have it all because we offer it all: a combination of a fresh outlook on the new age of treatment solutions (such as FUE) with your tried, true, and proven procedures (like Botox). Whether you opt for a brand-new procedure or a staple favorite, you can trust that RefinedMD focuses on the patient experience which means limiting recovery and assuring natural results. We spend extra time with every patient because we value a personal relationship that often lasts for life.
