Why choose Dermatology Center of Northwest Indiana



Aging is a complex process that affects the skin in many ways. The body’s natural rejuvenation processes change, as does the composition of skin. Additionally, cellular damage caused by UV light exposure accumulates over the years. Sun damage is sometimes referred to as photoaging, as the aesthetic effects of UV rays are very similar to natural aging. Correcting the signs of aging is equally complex. To achieve natural looking results, the treatment plan must address a broad spectrum of causative factors. For example, wrinkles are commonly caused by dryness, loss of elasticity, loss of volume in deeper tissue, and rigidity of facial muscles. Botox can soften the muscles, but, if there is also volume loss, some wrinkles will persist. An inexperienced provider may increase the dose in an attempt to improve results. However, more isn’t always better, as too much Botox will cause the notorious frozen face and yield unsatisfactory results.

Dr. Garlapati begins with a comprehensive aesthetic analysis, evaluating skin health, type, and condition. He has the expertise and artistic eye to pinpoint the various factors affecting each area of the face and formulates a unique treatment plan accordingly. His goal is not to change your appearance, but to enhance it. A naturally youthful look is achieved by taking precise steps to correct the individual signs of aging.
