Non-surgical cosmetic treatments are procedures that improve or reshape areas of the body to boost a patient’s appearance and confidence. There are a number of non-surgical cosmetic treatments—many of which can be completed in just a few minutes—that can address concerns such as wrinkles, sun damage, and unwanted facial or body hair. Sometimes these cosmetic treatment options may require some thought and research before making a decision. For patients who are asking: “What cosmetic treatments are worth it?” or “What are the best non-surgical cosmetic treatments?” Dr. Pierre offers guidance. He and his team will share their insight and experience related to every aspect of these cosmetic treatments to help each person determine which option is best for them.


What are injectable treatments? What are the different types of injectable treatments? How do injectables work?

Do these questions sound familiar to you? If so, we can explain everything you need to know about cosmetic treatments designed to relax wrinkles, add volume, and more.

Simply put, injectables are medications added beneath the skin or into the muscles to achieve cosmetic results. These minimally invasive cosmetic treatments are introduced via needle, making them a popular choice for women and men who want beautiful results without surgery. There are different types of cosmetic treatments available for targeting different types of cosmetic concerns, with two main types of injectables used at Pierre Skin Care Institute: neurotoxins and facial fillers.

The best cosmetic treatment for you will depend on which types of wrinkles you want to reduce or what you hope to enhance. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a neurotoxin or neuromodulator that relaxes facial muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles to form, Juvéderm® (Volbella®, Vollure, and Voluma®) adds volume to fill in static creases and hollows that usually occur on the center or lower areas of the face. It’s expected that there will be a high demand for injectable dermal fillers in 2023 and beyond.


Are laser treatments good for your skin? Cosmetic treatments that send energy into the skin have numerous benefits, from encouraging collagen production and cell turnover to damaging follicles where unwanted hairs grow. At Pierre Skin Care Institute, patients can choose laser skin resurfacing (including LaseMD) and laser hair removal to harness the power of focused light. Clear + Brilliant®, IPL, Cutera® Excel V, and Laser Genesis are all cosmetic treatments ideal for reducing redness due to a variety of causes, as well as other cosmetic issues. Ultrasound and RF energy combined have a significant skin tightening effect, making Exilis Ultra® a popular treatment.

Fat Reduction

Can fat cells be destroyed by freezing? If this is something you’re curious about, here’s what you should know:

Your skin is one aspect of your appearance, but many people also want to achieve slimmer contours by reducing resistant fat. Since diet and exercise are not effective spot-reduction strategies for targeting specific pockets of unwanted fat on the body, Pierre Skin Care Institute offers a nonsurgical cosmetic treatment that has proven effective at reducing volume: fat-freezing CoolSculpting®. This treatment kills fat cells, prompting natural body processes that lead to a slimmer look.

Skin Rejuvenation

Skin rejuvenation treatments are procedures that boost the skin’s appearance from the inside out by promoting skin cell turnover or collagen growth. DiamondGlow uses the power of microdermabrasion to remove dead cells, microneedling encourages the creation of new collagen, chemical peels cause the dull outermost layer to flake away, and DermaSweep combines three cosmetic treatments in one to revitalize the skin. Skin tightening with RF and ultrasound energy can optimize your look by addressing loose skin.


You may be an ideal candidate for any of these procedures if your general health is good, you’re a non-smoker, you’re committed to caring for your skin well, and you maintain a positive outlook and realistic goals for how your appearance can be improved. Every cosmetic treatment starts with a consultation in order to determine which option would be the best for achieving a patient’s desired outcome.


Do guys get BOTOX®? Dr. Peterson Pierre understands that while women have traditionally made up the main audience for cosmetic treatments, men are increasingly taking an interest in caring for their skin—but want and need options tailored for their unique physiology and goals. Throughout 2022 and expected in 2023, a higher number of men are showing interest in cosmetic treatments to enhance their appearance. Talk to the board-certified dermatologist about male- focused BOTOX® Cosmetic, laser hair removal, fat reduction, and other services.


The skin is your body’s gateway or the first line of defense, so it takes on a lot of stress. Although blemishes and wrinkles are common issues that affect the skin’s appearance, there are thousands of conditions that can impact the skin. If you’re not happy about your skin’s appearance or there’s some aspect about it that’s worrying you, you should see a dermatologist. In addition to cosmetic treatments, Dr. Peterson Pierre also offers a variety of medical dermatology procedures to improve skin health. Pierre Skin Care Institute helps patients diagnose, treat, and cope with symptoms of skin diseases or conditions including acne, skin cancer, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). We can provide treatment plans for patients who are experiencing these conditions and help them decide on the next steps.
