Cosmetic Skin Care Q & A

What is cosmetic skin care?

Cosmetic skin care includes treatments, services, and products dedicated to improving the way your skin looks. While many of them also have benefits for the health and wellness of your skin, you may be initially interested in them for their cosmetic appeal. 

Using the cosmetic skin care services and products you can get at Southwest Michigan Dermatology, you can make your skin:

  • Brighter
  • Smoother
  • More even-toned
  • More youthful

During an initial visit, a licensed medical aesthetician will examine your skin and provide recommendations based on your skin type and goals. They can also teach you to use any products you receive correctly. 

Which services are available for cosmetic skin care?

Cosmetic skin care services available at Southwest Michigan Dermatology can give you brighter and healthier skin that looks great with or without makeup. Treatments you can get in the office include:


Chemical peels promote cell turnover by removing the surface layer of dead, dying, and worn-down skin cells. The Southwest Michigan Dermatology team can help you find a peel that aligns with your needs.  


Extraction is a method for clearing out clogged pores. Filled with excess sebum and dead skin cells, clogged pores can make your skin appear dirty or rough. The team can remove blackheads and whiteheads during your extraction procedure. 

Which products can I get for cosmetic skin care? 

Southwest Michigan Dermatology provides many medical-grade skin care products that are stronger and more effective than products you get at a drugstore. They include sunscreens, moisturizers, cleansers, serums, and other important products to maintain the health and appearance of your skin. 

Southwest Michigan Dermatology provides products from the practice’s own brand, Topix, alongside products from these other trusted brands:

  • Revision Skincare™
  • Biopelle®
  • SkinMedica®
  • SkinCeuticals®
  • LaRoche-Posay®
  • CosmeticRX®

The team gives you personalized skin care product recommendations and can help you develop an effective skin care routine. Even if you don’t know much about your skin’s needs, the team can teach you how to nourish your skin to make it look better than ever before.
