Learn all about cosmetic dermatology and how it can give you the skin you can feel confident in.

From those early signs of aging to sun spots, many skin imperfections can appear over the years that can make you feel less than confident about your appearance. Don’t worry; our Staten Island, NY, cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Patricia McCormack offers a wide range of cosmetic dermatology services to improve the look and appearance of your skin. Here are some of the top cosmetic dermatology services we provide,


Is this your first time in the cosmetic dermatology scene? If so you may want to ease yourself into it with a more non-invasive treatment option. Botox is a great first treatment option for our patients because this FDA-approved treatment is designed to smooth away dynamic lines and wrinkles of the face including those pesky “11s” between your brows, forehead wrinkles, laugh lines and more. Botox only takes a couple of minutes to administer and results last up to 6 months.


If you are fighting the effects of sun damage, uneven skin tone, rosacea, or fine lines and wrinkles, our photofacial treatment may be just the thing to refresh your skin’s tone, texture and appearance. In just 30 minutes this laser therapy penetrates deep within the skin to constrict blood vessels and to restructure collagen production to increase skin’s firmness and texture while reducing facial redness.

There is also no downtime associated with this procedure, making it a great option for those who are looking to improve the look of blotchy, red and uneven skin but without the recovery process.

Dermal Fillers

As we get older our bodies don’t produce as much collagen and elastin. As a result, our faces start to lose volume. Dermal fillers can be an effective solution for plumping up areas of the face to look more youthful. Dermal fillers can also fill out thinning lips. Results from dermal fillers can last anywhere from 5 months to 12 months or longer, and they can be combined with other cosmetic dermatology services we offer at our Staten Island, NY, practice.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels have been around for a while and there’s a reason why. This is a tried-and-true way of resurfacing the skin to improve tone, texture and overall appearance. Chemical peels remove the outermost layers of the skin to reveal healthier and more youthful skin underneath. Chemical peels can range in intensity, from superficial to deep, depending on the issues you’re dealing with.

Since more extensive chemical peels may require weeks of downtime, it’s important that you speak with your dermatologist Dr. McCormack first about the issues you wish to treat and the goals you have for treatment.

These are only some of the amazing cosmetic dermatology treatments we offer.
