As we age, we will start to notice differences in our bodies from the inside out.
One of the many changes that occur is in the quality of our skin and its appearance. Proper skin care can not only maintain a youthful look, but can also keep your skin healthy and you feeling confident.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dave Lee, MD, offers both minimally invasive and surgical options to treat a variety of skincare issues. Dr. Lee can specifically curate results for your particular aesthetic skincare needs.
Many of our high-profile patients prefer to be private with their cosmetic procedures and prefer that their photographs not be placed online. At your consultation, you will be shown photographs of patients who have given us permission to display their before and after pictures.
Skin care actually refers to several different practices and treatments that can help prolong healthy skin. On the at-home level, this includes using moisturizers, avoiding lots of sun exposure, and proper nutrition on a daily basis.
In addition, skin care can refer to a range of cosmetic treatments, which include skin peels, wrinkle reducers, retinol therapy, microdermabrasion, pigment correction, sun protection, and scar management. These treatments can both renew your skin and stimulate the growth of collagen to maintain the results. They can also alleviate chronic skin issues such as oily, itchy, or dry skin. Not only does skin care in Chelmsford at PURE Cosmetic Center reduce signs of aging, but it also makes up an important part of healing wounds, alleviating discomfort from radiation treatments, and reducing the side effects from certain medications.
Proper skincare generally consists of following a daily routine that helps your skin maintain itself, which also keeps it from being either too moist or too dry. A good skincare routine can prevent skin injuries and protect sensitive skin, all while promoting skin renewal for a youthful appearance.
Skincare can also reduce the effects of aging or photodamage, such as wrinkles, lines, rough texture, age spots, redness, sallow complexions, discoloration, and loss of elasticity (which results in sagging).

Dr. Lee will help you choose the right treatment for your needs. The skincare offered by Dr. Lee comes in four main varieties.
Wrinkle Reducers:These are minimally invasive injections that reduce lines and wrinkles on your face. The most common of these is Botox, but you can also try Xeomin or Dysport for specific areas.
Chemical Peels:These non-invasive treatments involve using various chemical solutions to remove the top layers of your skin, which are often old, dry, and brittle, so your skin can then grow back new smoother skin.
Pigment Correction:Kojic acid, hydroquinone, chemical peels
Sun Protection:Medical grade sunscreen. Recommend physical sunscreens (not chemical sunscreens).
Scar Management:Medical grade silicone, steroid injections, microneedling, dermabrasion, and surgical correction
Microdermabrasion:This is another minimally invasive treatment that carefully sands your skin. This removes the outer layers and can improve light scarring, sun damage, stretch marks, and discoloration.
