As you age, your skin produces less collagen and can begin to sag or wrinkle. Lafayette Dermatology and Cosmetic Center offers a variety of skin care treatments designed to boost your skin's elasticity and improve its overall appearance. We invite you to meet with our licensed physicians as well as our skin specialist team to discuss your skin care goals and determine which non-surgical option is best for you.

Jeuveau, Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin® are injectable neuromodulators made up of botulinum toxin-A, which inhibits the muscle activity that leads to moderate to severe lines and wrinkles. This treatment is administered by our physicians to correct facial wrinkles. Common treatment areas include forehead, glabella (between eyebrows), and crow's feet. Results typically last 3-4 months.
Juvèderm®, Radiesse®, Restylane®, Belotero®, Volbella®, Vollure®, & Voluma® - Fillers help to restore a more youthful appearance by correcting facial volume loss, which is a natural aging process. Fillers can also be used to "fill in" lines and enhance lips. Our physicians will recommend which filler or combination of fillers is best for you.
Kybella® is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called "double chin." Kybella® is injected into the chin area, resulting in the reduction of fat under the chin. It is an in-office procedure preformed by our board certified dermatologists and results in minimal downtime.
Medical Grade Chemical Peels
High concentrations of chemical peeling agents administered by our physicians to dramatically improve a wide variety of skin conditions including acne, acne scars, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles.
We offer laser skin rejuvenation with the Cutera Excel V device. This advanced laser technology helps to improve vascular and pigmented lesions on the skin. It is most commonly used to address persistent facial redness, scars, pigmented lesions, sun damage, angiomas, leg veins, port wine stains, red birthmarks, and rosacea. As one of the most advanced treatments to improve the appearance of skin tone, the Excel V combines two ultra-precise, best-in-class laser wavelengths (532nm/1064nm) in one device, which allows for us to treat all skin types with this laser.
All laser treatments are overseen by a physician onsite. Multiple sessions are needed to achieve maximum results. Generally 2-4 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart yield the best outcome.
Lafayette Dermatology is excited to also offer the Cutera Excel HR device, an advanced hair removal laser that is perfect for every skin type, treating black or brown hair. Laser hair removal is the most effective treatment for hair removal, as well as a long term solution for perifolliculitis (ingrown hair or razor bumps). Laser hair removal works by selectively targeting the melanin in the hair follicle, damaging the hair follicle and interrupting further growth. This treatment works best on darker, denser hair; hair follicles without melanin (blonde, red, grey, and white hair) do not respond effectively to laser hair removal.
Common areas for laser hair removal are the upper lip, chin, underarm, bikini area, back, neck, and legs. Generally, 4-8 treatments spaced 6-10 weeks apart yield the best results.
Lafayette Dermatology is the only practice in Lafayette to offer the Halo Hybrid Resurfacing laser treatment. This fractionated laser uses hybrid technology that creates controlled zones of coagulation to chosen depths into the skin's dermis that stimulates collagen growth and then fractionally vaporizes micro laser channels in the epidermis. This innovative device addresses both tone and texture and regenerates the skin, resulting in brighter looking skin, with minimal downtime.
The Halo Fractional treatment creates outcomes based on the aggressiveness of the treatment taking into account your skin concerns, the health of your skin, and your individual healing ability. Due to this, patient response can vary after a Halo fractional treatment. Erythema (redness) and possibly edema (swelling) are the desired responses within a few minutes after the completion of the procedure. The degree of redness and length of healing time will increase with the depth and coverage of the procedure.
All laser treatments are overseen by a physician onsite, Monday through Friday.
This noninvasive ultrasound device lifts and tightens the neck, chin, and brow, and improves lines and wrinkles on the decolletage. The power of ultrasound goes to work deep below the skin's surface, reviving and creating collagen over time for a different kind of lift.
Ultherapy® uses time-tested ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin naturally without surgery, helping you achieve a fresher, more youthful look from your brow to your chest! The safety and efficacy of Ultherapy have been established through clinical studies and over 1 million treatments performed worldwide. Ultherapy is FDA-cleared to lift the skin on the neck, under the chin, and on the brow, as well as to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the décolleté. Ultherapy® deposits focused ultrasound energy deep beneath the skin at the optimal temperature for collagen regeneration. The treatment jumpstarts a natural process, neocollagenesis, to produce fresh, new collagen to counteract the effects of time and gravity on your skin. Ultherapy relies on your body's own collagen-building process for natural, noticeable results.
PRP is blood plasma that contains concentrated amounts of platelets and growth factors. Your own concentrated platelets are rich in bioactive proteins and they work with the 8 life giving growth factors to trigger and accelerate healing and repair. After a simple blood draw, then separation by centrifuge, your own platelets are prepared and administered as needed.
What is PRP used for at Lafayette Dermatology?
Hair loss: Studies have shown that injecting these growth factors into the areas of hair loss, trigger natural hair growth and maintain it by increasing blood supply to the hair follicle and increasing the thickness of the hair shaft.
Facial Rejuvenation: PRP can be used with Skin Pen Microneedling to enhance the treatment. PRP is used as the "serum" in the microneedling treatment. The PRP is activated to release growth factors and signaling proteins, which strengthen your skin, stimulate collagen and play a significant role in remodeling the skin. It can also be applied to assist in quicker healing after halo laser and other aggressive skin care treatments.
