Which Skin Care Procedure by a Dermatologist Is Right For You?
At our Dallas, Texas clinic, we offer a number of beneficial skin care treatments as well as a consultation with a dermatologist, letting you know you’re getting the best and safest options for your skin care needs.

Some people think you should only go to a dermatologist if you have a mole that changes color or gets larger, as this is a good way to catch and prevent skin cancer. But the truth is dermatologists can help you with so much, including effective skin care procedures that help you look your absolute best. 

At Dr. Malouf Dermatology in Dallas, Texas, we offer everything your skin might need, from acne and rosacea treatments to minimally invasive procedures like SafeLift and fillers. Our providers — Peter Malouf, DO and Amanda Miller, FNP-C— can help you determine which treatments are right for you. 

Why visit a dermatologist for skin care 

You might be wondering, Wouldn’t it be more appropriate and possibly cheaper to see an esthetician rather than a dermatologist for my skin care? 

Although estheticians can provide a number of helpful options, they can’t offer everything we can at our Dallas, Texas clinic. 

For one, estheticians can only focus on the surface of your skin, while a trained dermatologist can look beyond — to the health, wellness, and needs of what’s underneath. Also, estheticians usually only focus on aesthetic skin care. A dermatologist can offer treatments that are helpful for your skin health and aesthetically pleasing. Finally, should it be necessary, a dermatologist can also prescribe medications for acne as well as other issues. 

This is why we recommend visiting a dermatologist for your skin care needs. Dr. Malouf will be able to provide you with a full treatment experience, depending totally on your needs. 

Choosing the right skin care procedure for you 

At Dr. Malouf Dermatology, we want to help you get the right skin care procedure for your needs. This might mean one or a host of options is right for you. Depending on the situation, we’re here to help you create a personalized treatment plan. 

Medical dermatology

We offer a number of medical dermatology treatments that can help you keep your skin healthy and looking good. These can include treatments for acne, keloids, scars, rosacea, moles, warts, psoriasis, and fungal infections. 

Hair restoration

Hair loss is a serious issue that can cause self-consciousness, loss of self-esteem, and other side effects. It’s even been proven that depression can be linked to this condition. If you’re looking for a program that involves hair restoration, we’re happy to help.  

Laser hair removal

You might also be dealing with the other side of the spectrum — where you have hair in places you don’t want, and no matter what you do, you can’t get rid of it. Laser hair removal is easy and effective, and receiving treatment at a dermatologist’s office ensures it's safe for your skin. 


You might have an issue that has always bothered you about your skin. Maybe your upper lip is too thin or you have a scar you wish would disappear. Maybe it’s wrinkles that are bothering you. Whatever the case, injectables like Botox® and fillers could be a great option for your aesthetic skin care needs.  


It’s common to consider getting a face lift and then to decide against it based on the invasiveness of the procedure. But if you want many of the benefits without the long recovery, SafeLift is a great option. It’s a minimally invasive procedure that lifts, tightens, and reduces wrinkles. 

Tumescent liposuction

Tumescent liposuction is a way to contour your body to remove stubborn fat deposits even after you’ve lost weight. With this procedure, you can make your face and body look exactly the way you want without the spots that make you self-conscious. 

PRP therapy 

PRP therapy is a fantastic treatment option for those who want to give their skin a glow-up but don’t want invasive procedures. It involves using platelet-rich plasma from your own blood, making it safe, effective, and easy on your skin. 


Photofacials are a great way to reduce signs of aging without invasive treatments. Sunspots, freckles, and more can be minimized with this treatment that involves the power of multiple wavelengths of light to soften imperfections in the skin. 

Laser resurfacing 

Laser resurfacing is a slightly more intensive procedure than IPL, but it is still minimally invasive and easy on the skin. It can help to smooth out wrinkles, tighten your skin, and create a more even tone overall.
