Need a Self-Esteem Boost? How Cosmetic Dermatology Treatments Can Help

When you think of raising your self-esteem, it’s easy to write a nice note to yourself or buy something you know you’ll look good in. But have you considered that cosmetic dermatology services can help with your self-esteem? Here’s what you need to know.


Chemical Peels

If you want to minimize the appearance of dark spots, acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, or sun damaged skin, a chemical peel is an excellent option to consider. All of those skin conditions listed are common sources for shame and embarrassment. But you shouldn’t have to feel uncomfortable in your own skin! That’s why cosmetic dermatology services like chemical peels can be a great option for boosting your self-esteem. And the best part is that they’re administered with your unique situation in mind. Your dermatologist will select the intensity of your chemical peel based on a few different factors. Your desired results, skin sensitivity, and current skin issues are all things that your dermatologist will take into consideration when you opt for this cosmetic dermatology service. You may experience a little bit of redness and skin sensitivity afterwards, but the final results will leave your skin looking smooth and supple. Talk about a real self-esteem booster! The best part about this treatment is that it’s noninvasive and it only takes a short visit to your dermatologist’s office.

Laser Hair Removal

Body hair can be a source of embarrassment for countless reasons. Whether you’re uncomfortable with unwanted hair on your face or your arm hair makes you want to wear long sleeves all year long, laser hair removal can help. And fortunately, laser hair removal can be performed almost anywhere on your body. That’s right! It’s not just for your legs and underarms. This treatment also offers extremely precise results, no matter where you need hair removal. As the name suggests, it involves the use of a laser to target individual hair follicles. That means your dermatologist can target every hair follicle and stop unwanted hair growth right in its tracks. You may need multiple treatments for ideal results, but you can kiss your underarm embarrassment goodbye!


If you want to ensure a totally even skin tone and a radiant complexion to boost your self-esteem, microneedling just might be the perfect treatment for you. Microneedling works by stimulating collagen production in the treatment area. As tiny microtears are made in the skin by a tool composed of a number of microneedles, your body will produce collagen to heal them and create new, healthy skin. The end result will leave you with tighter skin, smaller pores, and a reduction in the appearance of any fine lines or wrinkles. In most cases, it typically takes one to three treatments to see your desired results from microneedling. But for a self-esteem boost this big, a few repeat treatments will be well worth the investment.

When you need a boost in your self-esteem, don’t rule out cosmetic dermatology services. If you have questions about making your skin look its best, set up an appointment at North Pacific Dermatology today.
