Find out how our cosmetic services could help you feel more comfortable in your skin.

Whether you are looking to take years off your appearance or you want to smooth away acne scars, our Forest Hills, NY, dermatologist Dr. botoxTamara Ross offers a wide range of cosmetic dermatology services to treat problem areas and improve your appearance. Here are some of the most popular treatments we offer,
 

Chemical Peels

A chemical peel involves applying a solution over the skin to reveal healthier-looking skin underneath. The intensity of the peel will depend on the type of issues you are looking to treat.

Chemical peels are great for those looking to achieve softer more radiant skin, as well as those dealing with uneven skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars and age spots. Chemical peels work on all skin types. The recovery period may take anywhere from a couple of days to a couple of weeks, depending on the type of chemical peel you receive.
 

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy

Intense Pulsed Light Therapy is a cosmetic rejuvenation that directs light over the skin to target brown spots, broken blood vessels, red spots and other pigmentations. Chemical peels and microdermabrasion will not treat broken capillaries or blood vessels. There is also no recovery time associated with this cosmetic treatment.
 

Botox Injections

If you are looking to smooth away frown lines, forehead wrinkles or crow’s feet then Botox treatment may be right for you. Our Forest Hills, NY, skin doctor will administer the Botox injections into the muscles of the face to temporarily prevent them from contracting, which in turn smooths away dynamic lines and wrinkles of the face. Results appear a couple of days after treatment and results last anywhere from 3-4 months.
​​​​​​​

Microdermabrasion

Instead of applying a chemical solution over the skin, microdermabrasion will use a special device containing microcrystals that will glide over the face to remove the outer layer of dead skin to improve dullness, discoloration, lines and wrinkles, and texture. Like IPL therapy, there is no downtime associated with microdermabrasion.
