The Benefits of Seeing a Dermatologist

How your dermatologist in Bend, OR, can help you

A dermatologist knows everything there is to know about taking care of your skin. When your skin is healthy, you look healthy too. If your skin is unhealthy, it can make you look old and tired. Your dermatologist can help you and your skin look your best. Dr. Gerald Peters at Peters Dermatology Center in Bend, OR, provides comprehensive medical and cosmetic dermatology services to help you.

Let’s look at just a few of the benefits of seeing a dermatologist. A dermatologist can:

Help you look younger, by offering a wide range of anti-aging services including:

  • Dermal fillers, which work by plumping up and filling in fine lines and wrinkles, and adding facial volume to help minimize sagging skin
  • Botox, which works by temporarily “freezing” muscles and nerves around the injection site, making your skin look smooth and wrinkle-free

Enhance the beauty of your skin, by offering a wide range of skin resurfacing treatments including:

  • Chemical peels and microdermabrasion, which work by sloughing dead skin cells and renewing your skin
  • Microneedling, which works by promoting collagen production and tapping into your body’s natural healing properties, so your skin looks radiant
  • Laser skin resurfacing, which works by removing dead skin cells, to improve the tone and texture of your skin

Treat and heal skin problems, by offering a wide range of medical dermatology services to treat:

  • Rashes, which are treated with anti-itch medications like cortisone cream
  • Acne, which is treated with tretinoin, laser therapy, and other services to eliminate blemishes
  • Psoriasis and eczema, which are treated with laser therapy to reduce and scaly patches

Prevention of skin cancer by offering a wide range of preventive services, including:

  • Regular skin exams, to check for skin abnormalities
