THE BRYN MAWR DERMATOLOGY DIFFERENCE
We love to create beautiful, natural, and youthful-looking results for our cosmetic dermatology patients! With our help, you can look fabulously refreshed, instead of fake or overtreated. We understand how personal facial aesthetics are and respect your natural appearance when using the products and procedures in our tool box. The first step is often to meet with one of our specialists to devise a plan that is as unique as you are. She will sit down with you and discuss your cosmetic goals, your budget, and your timeline. We thrive on creating creative solutions that work for everyone and tapping into our talent to produce artistic results that allow your inner beauty to shine.
Our board-certified dermatologist and practice owner, Dr. Christine Stanko, and her extensively trained aesthetic dermatology team look forward to helping every patient love what they see when they look in the mirror. They make every effort to stay on top of the newest advancements in the cosmetic industry by attending regular training sessions and trade shows. As a naturally ambitious group, they perform their trade day in and day out, with the determination to stay at the top of their field, and are always looking for ways to improve. This applies to performing injectables like Botox and dermal fillers in addition to all the medical services they provide.
Many of our patients are looking for aesthetic treatments that are minorly invasive, comfortable, and come with little to no downtime so they can get back to their busy lives and families. Our skilled injectors use a gentle touch and provide all the information you need to enjoy a quick and comfortable recovery, including the application of cold compresses, recommendation of homeopathic medications that help reduce any bruising or swelling, and thorough aftercare instructions. Most treatments take less than an hour and allow you to return to your normal daily activities immediately. No matter if you are looking to reduce wrinkles between your brows from all the scowling at your parents and then your kids, that inherited double-chin, or the spider veins in your legs acquired from half a lifetime on your feet – Bryn Mawr Dermatology is the destination for the residents of the Main Line and surrounding areas.

Fillers & Other Injectables
Expression lines, like crow’s feet, smile lines, and forehead wrinkles may become noticeable in your 30s and deepen over time as collagen production naturally slows. No one escapes the effects of time, and we know how frustrating it can be to look in the mirror and see a reflection of someone older, someone more tired, than you feel.
Ninety-five percent of the dermal fillers on the market are made of a substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). Modified HA is so commonly used for the purpose of adding volume to the face in aesthetic dermatology because it is a natural component of many of the body’s structures, which is why our body does not react to it as foreign when injected. It is a water-loving gel that has the ability to shape and contour the features of your face naturally and comes in dozens of different products that are designed for specific areas of the face and hands. It is safe, reversible and (when injected by an expert) can create an appearance that is more youthful, balanced and reminiscent of you minus a few years.
Radiesse® is best used to volumize and add structure to cheeks, jawlines and temples. It is a unique, calcium-based product that over a period of months gets re-absorbed into your body leaving behind a natural scaffold for new collagen growth. Natural collagen is what gives skin a smooth, supple, youthful appearance. As you age, natural collagen breaks down resulting in formation of facial lines and wrinkles and loss of facial volume.
Bryn Mawr Dermatology is excited to offer the Y Lift in Collegeville and Villanova – a revolutionary approach to facial rejuvenation that involves no incisions and no downtime. Treatment is quick, effective, and is considered the premier liquid facelift. The Y Lift uses dermal fillers and an unprecedented technique to create new and improved facial structure that was either diminished over time or was weak to begin with. Unlike a facelift that stretches skin over an un-changed framework, and can result in a pulled or waxy appearance, the Y Lift works from the inside out to produce naturally beautiful results that last for years.
Sculptra® Aesthetic works subtly and gradually over time for a more youthful-looking appearance. Unlike hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, Sculptra Aesthetic helps stimulate your skin’s own natural collagen production to help restore its inner structure and increase facial volume that has been lost to aging.1-3 Sculptra Aesthetic is intended for use in people with healthy immune systems as a one-time treatment regimen of up to four injection sessions that are scheduled about three weeks apart.
The appearance of fullness under your chin (called submental fat) is a small cosmetic problem that can create the wide-reaching, overall effect of having a rounded face or looking old past your years. While this can be pesky and hard to resolve on your own, cosmetic procedures are available to help sculpt your facial profile and create the appearance you want: a well-defined jaw and neck that help you look youthful and poised.
As we age there is the possibility that we will develop small, thready, visible veins as a result of extended periods walking, standing or genetics. They often appear on our lower extremities, but can crop up anywhere on our skin. They don’t hurt. They aren’t dangerous. They are, however, an eyesore. If you are frustrated by spider veins and want to feel more comfortable showing your gams, then shoot us a call at Bryn Mawr Dermatology so we can introduce you to Sclerotherapy. During this fast, simple procedure, we use an injectable medication to destroy those vessels and return your legs to their former glory.
