Cosmetic Procedures

We offer the latest cosmetic treatments at Lam Dermatology. These treatments are part of a comprehensive skin care regimen designed to complement the medical treatments prescribed by the physician.

Select Your Problem Area

Wrinkles may be treated using various techniques. We offer the latest treatments including neuromodulators (Botox and Dysport), prescription topical treatments, laser facials, chemical peels, and cosmeceuticals.

Loss of natural fat or facial volume contributes significantly to the appearance of aged skin. Dermatologists select injectable fillers to instantly plump and replenish areas of lost volume, especially the nasolabial folds, cheeks, temples, thinning lips, chin & jawline, among many other areas. Facial fillers can also be used to correct scars, superficial wrinkles and deep wrinkles.

Lips that have lost plumpness through the aging process, or naturally thin or disproportionate lips, can be treated to look fuller with non-surgical injectable fillers. Hyaluronic acid-based Restylane and Juvederm are popular options.

Laser treatments, such as the Laser Genesis, can effectively plump, tone, and smooth the skin of the face and decollete. Not only are these treatment be effective in correcting "crepe-y" appearance, they can be utilized as long-term preventative care for your skin. This leads to superior maintenance of your skin health and beauty.

Excessive frowning, UV-light damage, and natural aging can all contribute to frown lines or "eleven-lines." This area can be treated with neuromodulators, dermal fillers, and other preventative measures.

Periorbital lines, or "laugh-lines," are easily corrected with non-surgical treatment. Neuromodulators (Botox, Dysport, Xeomin) as well as Laser Genesis or Chemical Peels can be effective in treating this area, particularly when treatment is maintained on a regular basis.

With the aging process, loss of volume is not limited to our faces. Sagging earlobes, and earlobes that have been stretched out from piercings, can be improved with dermal filler injections.

Treatment of acne starts with a medical approach to clear the complexion of acne break-outs and pimples. Unfortunately, moderate-to-severe acne can occasionally cause scarring. Lam Dermatology offers many treatments to improve the appearance of acne scars including Excel V laser to reduce redness, Laser Genesis, dermal fillers and microneedling.

Whether genetic or acquired, patients often struggle with this problem area, and despite weight-loss efforts, submental fat can be resistant to diet and exercise alone. Kybella treatments are non-surgical and minimally invasive, and can give permanent reduction of the double chin or submental fat. Dr. Lam is one of few trained dermatologists approved for injection of Kybella in the OKC area.

What are dermal fillers and what can they treat?

Dermal fillers are cosmetic products made for injection. They are typically comprised of natural substances, such as hyaluronic acid. A trained and experienced dermatologist injects filler products in specific areas under the skin to correct for signs of aging.

The following areas are commonly treated with dermal fillers: 

  • Lip lines
  • Lip fullness
  • Cheeks
  • Under eyes (tear trough)
  • Bridge of nose
  • Nasolabial folds (smile lines)
  • Marionette lines
  • Mental crease (chin crease)
  • Jaw & chin augmentation
  • Scars (acne scars or other)
  • Hand rejuvenation
  • Earlobe rejuvenation

What is BOTOX Cosmetic?

BOTOX® is a natural, purified protein, which blocks the release of a chemical called acetylcholine. This blocks the nerve impulses to the muscles that cause wrinkles. When we frown, the skin is gathered into a fold causing a furrow or wrinkle. When BOTOX® is injected into selected facial muscles causing relaxation of these muscles, the skin that lies over top of these muscles becomes smoothed out. 

Dermatologists commonly treat the following areas with BOTOX® Cosmetic:

  • Forehead lines
  • Frown lines ("eleven lines")
  • Crow's feet
  • Eyebrow lift
  • Lip lines
  • Chin dimples/texture
  • Gummy smile
  • Marionette lines
  • Neck bands
  • Excessive sweating

Laser Facial Rejuvenation

Freckles, sun spots, wrinkles, lines, broken blood vessels, Melasma—there are many kinds of sun damage resulting from over-exposure or simply long-term exposure to the sun.  In addition, some patients suffer from a form of rosacea that consists of stubborn and hard-to-treat redness and broken capillaries.

The advanced lasers at Lam Dermatology can treat and reduce sun damage of many sorts. Depending on the extent of the damage, correction can take repeated and committed treatment. Prescription retinoids, cosmeceuticals, chemical peels and spot treatment with liquid nitrogen can help reverse the cosmetic signs of photoaging.

What is Kybella™?

Kybella is a new injectable treatment for submental fullness (double chin) that can significantly improve chin contouring without the invasiveness and downtime of surgery. Kybella was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in May 2015 for the reduction of submental fat. Dr. Lam is one of the first trained injectors of Kybella in the Oklahoma City area. 

Kybella is a synthetic formulation of deoxycholic acid, which is a substance naturally created by our bodies and used to break down and absorb dietary fat. Kybella has been under development for more than 9 years, and has been the subject of over 20 clinical studies involving more than 2600 patients. When properly injected in the chin area, it has been shown to dissolve submental fat (which causes double chin) and result in significant cosmetic improvement by creating a more streamline contour along the jawline. 

The typical patient may expect 2 to 6 treatment sessions, each consisting of injections of Kybella directly into the fat tissue of the submental area. Dr. Lam utilized injectable numbing to minimize discomfort at the time of treatment. Patients may experience pain, numbness, swelling, bruising, firmness, and other side effects following the treatment, which gradually fade as healing occurs over 2 to 4 weeks.
