Dermatology is a multi-faceted medical specialty. Dr. Alan Rockoff and Dr. Katherine Fening at the Rockoff Dermatology Center in Brookline and Andover, MA not only help you manage the health of your skin; they also provide services that enhance its appearance as well! Here are just two of the many ways we can help you put your best face forward.
This rejuvenating treatment is a safe, proven and remarkable way to eradicate wrinkles and bring youthful firmness back to your skin, in particular, the areas between the eyes and in their outer corners. Botox is derived from natural proteins that stop the neurological reactions of muscle movement and has been used by physicians for decades as a way to correct muscular spasms in the throat, eyes, and neck. Since 2002, your Brookline and Andover dermatologists have been able to use Botox as a cosmetic treatment for wrinkles. When the targeted muscles stop moving, the wrinkles that have formed as a result of constant use begin to smooth over. Botox is applied with a tiny, extra-fine needle, making it a minimally invasive treatment with few side effects that is a great alternative to surgical treatments. Its effects can take a few days to fully develop and typically last between three and four months before muscle activity resumes.
Unwanted hair can appear in many places on the body: the upper lip, the stomach, the chin. People who shave their legs and underarms are often dissatisfied with the time and temporary nature of shaving. Laser hair removal from your Brookline and Andover dermatologists offers a permanent solution to this common problem. Our specialized laser targets the hair while leaving the surrounding skin untouched, heating up the follicle to a temperature that permanently halts the hair growth. Like Botox, laser hair removal is non-surgical and doesn't require downtime, giving you smooth skin in six sessions or less at the Rockoff Center.
