Aesthetic Dermatology

Aesthetic dermatology at RefinedMD includes a suite of treatments, procedures, and products customized to your skin and goals. Your skin is usually the first thing people notice about you, and as the biggest organ you have it puts up with a lot. From UV damage and hyperpigmentation from a sunburn years ago to furrowed brows, as your skin ages it loses elasticity and begins to show tell-tale signs of getting older. Aesthetic dermatology can turn back the clock with a range of non-invasive and minimally invasive treatments. No matter what your skin concern may be, there’s a treatment or combination of treatments for it.

Almost eight years ago we opened our doors as Refined Dermatology while claiming that “Great Skin is a Journey.” Since those early days, we have expanded our staff, technology suite, and changed our name to RefinedMD. What hasn’t changed is our continued philosophy that great skin is still a journey. Even if you are born into good skin, you have to protect, stimulate, and give it the support it needs to look its most vibrant and healthiest. Achieving this does not happen with just cold cream. You need a plan. You need to use the best sunscreens on the market and commit to using medical-grade products that make a difference.

The RefinedMD Way: Our Approach to Getting Great Results

We are here to help you find that perfect combination of products that address your skins needs and lifestyle while staying within your budget. We evaluate your skin and specific concerns to develop a daily skin care regimen that makes your skin sing. Every person deserves a unique plan, not a cookie cutter approach, that uses patented and prescription strength products that will take your skin to a better place. Some older technologies may still work and should be part of any skin care regimen, such as retinols or retinoids, antioxidants, and zinc-based sunscreens.

Advanced Skin Care Products

Specific peptides are all the new rage in skin care products (all of which are patented and unique to specific lines). Nanotechnology is also booming right now and involves products that used to sit on the surface being engineered to penetrate the skin and deliver essential building blocks like collagen, elastin, and “dermal glue” directly into your dermis. They are game-changers.

Love the skin you’re in by treating it right. The best approach to aesthetic dermatology is a blend of in-office treatments and at-home care using expert-recommended medical-grade products. Whether you’re looking for a fast-acting treatment for a special event or want to overhaul the quality of your skin care, we’ll work with you to determine your goals and the strategy to get there.

Combining Technology with Aesthetic Treatments

Advances in aesthetics technology occurs many times throughout the year. Staying up to date and offering the latest is key to a cutting-edge practice and we have them all. Every product, injection, laser, and treatment are specifically designed to address an array of skin concerns including redness, pigmentation, texture, pore size, laxity, skin growths, dryness, thin skin, and all components of aging skin.

The best way to ensure great skin is to start caring for it early. It is easier to prevent than to reverse the aging process. The more “reversing” that is needed, the more downtime you’ll require. This means that you need to commit to starting early, schedule treatments, and keep on the journey to better skin. It is never “one and done.” The greatest skin care products won’t work if they sit in your drawer, just like one office treatment will not undo years of damage and return your young, supple, and glowing skin.

Popular Aesthetic Treatments at RefinedMD

Check out popular aesthetic treatments that patients are raving about.

RefinedMD, Los Gatos


One of the most popular aesthetic treatments is Botox. This is a proven method for quickly reducing and stopping fine lines and wrinkles. Botox “trains” muscles to stop frowning, furrowing, and wrinkling for up to six months.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers restore the volume you’ve lost in your face—or provides the volume you always wished you had. Dermal fillers can be used below the eyes, the cheeks, in the lips, and many other sites to achieve the facial contour structure you desire. Everyone loses muscle, fat, and elasticity as they age, including in the face. Aesthetic dermatology can help you restructure your features and personalize your own aesthetic.

RefinedMD, Los Gatos


Emsculpt is a non-invasive treatment that forces targeted muscles into 20,000 supramaximal contractions in just 30 minutes. That’s the equivalent of 20,000 lunges, crunches, or bicep curls in just half an hour.

RefinedMD, Los Gatos


CoolSculpting is commonly paired with Emsculpt and freezes away unwanted fat. This slow but steady process is ideal for contouring the body and face as the fat slowly dissolves in the weeks following the treatment sessions.

Broadband Light

Broadband light therapy (BBL) is one of the most in-demand options for skin rejuvenation and addresses a range of issues from discoloration to lines and skin laxity.

RefinedMD, Los Gatos


Microneedling can boost any treatment or work wonderfully as a stand-alone treatment. It encourages the body to produce collagen at the treatment site by creating tiny micro-injuries invisible to the naked eye.
