Albany Dermatology helps you care for the skin you’re in as you prepare for YOUR special day. We offer a personalized pre-wedding skin and rejuvenation plan of services for Brides, Grooms & their wedding parties.
 
Everyone begins with a complimentary Cosmetic & Esthetic personal consultation to evaluate their skin health and to identify objectives for rejuvenation and enhancement. 
 
Be sure to schedule your personal consultation soon after your engagement to allow time before the wedding date for telltale signs from procedures to fade and for the benefits to be fully realized.
 
 

 
MEDICAL TREATMENT
A wedding day is no time to worry about an acne breakout or rosacea flare! If you regularly contend with acne or rosacea redness, these should be addressed early on. Albany Dermatology will develop a medical care plan that includes treatment throughout your timeline, helping to control breakouts and flares to make your skin healthier. 
 
Topical medication is the most common approach for treatment, delivered as a gel, cream, wash, or other formulation. Oral medication may be used to combat bacteria and inflammation of the skin and treat hormonal issues. Often, a combination of treatments are required to achieve optimal results. Outcomes may be enhanced when coupled with esthetic services tailored to your skin type, or Intense Pulse Light (IPL) to eliminate bacteria and fight inflammation and redness. 
 
We may also discuss treatment for comprehensive issues such as acne scars, deep wrinkles, photoaging and sun damage concerns.
