Millennials Guide to Cosmetic Dermatology

It’s never a bad time to start taking good care of your skin. If you were born in the two decades between the 1980s and the 2000s, you’re part of the millennial generation and have a lot on your plate. Between your career goals and family plans, there’s a lot to juggle in life, causing stress that can wreak havoc on your skin.

Signs of aging or sun damage, like frown lines and brown spots, may be starting to affect your self-confidence, creeping up on you out of nowhere. Here at Coastal Medical & Cosmetic Dermatology, we offer a full range of services for millenials. While individual results vary with all of the treatments, they can treat minor cosmetic issues early and help prevent new ones from affecting your appearance.


If you have acne scars, fine lines, or enlarged pores on your face, a microdermabrasion treatment may be a great starting point for cosmetic enhancement.

Microdermabrasion treatments are minimally invasive and are effective in helping you maintain a younger-looking, toned complexion.

Microdermabrasion gently sands your skin to remove the outer layer. The process also stimulates new collagen growth to improve skin imperfections caused by acne and other conditions.

SilkPeel Dermalinfusion® treatments

This treatment is an advanced form of microdermabrasion skin treatments that use state-of-the-art vacuum pressure to evenly remove the top layer of your skin. The SilkPeel Dermalinfusion treatment is effective at volumizing the skin as well as correcting skin damage caused by acne, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation issues.

This advanced treatment also offers the benefits of rich skin serums that are infused to promote softer, smoother, and vibrant-looking skin, giving your face a more youthful, more polished look.

Chemical peels

Chemical peels offer corrective benefits using a medical-grade solution that gently removes the top layer of your skin to improve texture and tone. Chemical peels can also correct skin discoloration and reduce the appearance of age spots, wrinkles, and fine lines.

Our chemical peels are created with custom solutions and your treatment is based on your specific needs to ensure you achieve your desired results.


Botox is an injectable treatment that can reduce the severity of frown lines in your forehead and crow’s feet around your eyes. The purified proteins used in Botox injections temporarily block the nerve signals causing muscle contractions, which reduces the wrinkles and fine lines.

You can enjoy natural-looking results with just one treatment, with results showing in as little as 24 hours and lasting around four months. You receive several injections in each area you’re having treated, which takes only about 10 minutes, then you can return to your day.

Laser hair removal

For more effective results than traditional waxing or shaving, you can invest in laser hair removal that provides long-lasting results.

Laser hair removal can reduce unwanted hair growth on your face, legs, bikini area, and back without damaging the surrounding skin. Because the laser targets only the active-growth hair follicles, you may need a number of treatments over time to complete the process of hair removal.

Hair loss prevention

While laser hair removal treatments are a popular service at our facility, there are those that struggle with the opposite problem -- the emotional effects of premature hair loss.

Men may be genetically predisposed to losing hair at a young age, but women can also suffer from hair loss caused by genetics and medical conditions, like alopecia and thyroid dysfunction.

A variety of hair loss treatments are available to address existing conditions. Treatments can also help prevent further hair loss in both men and women.

Topical and oral medications can address issues like alopecia and male-pattern baldness to help you retain as much of your natural hair as possible.


SculpSure treatments are an effective way to eliminate stubborn fat deposits on your belly, thighs, and hips that diet and exercise won’t touch. You can attain a slimmer, more toned figure using noninvasive SculpSure treatments without the risks of traditional surgeries.

This powerful laser treatment melts away fat permanently, making it easier to maintain your body shape through your regular diet and exercise program.

While there’s no stopping the natural aging process, millennials have so many more options to consider in anti-aging cosmetic solutions. By being proactive about wrinkle prevention and taking proper care of your skin, you can enjoy a younger-looking, more vibrant appearance no matter how old you are.

The best part about the cosmetic services we offer is that many of the services are fast, painless, and highly effective at helping you achieve your desired results. To learn more about what services are right for you, call one of our offices in San Diego, La Jolla, or Chula Vista, California, or use the online booking agent to schedule an appointment.
