Here, we present our top favorite minimally invasive procedures, guaranteed to leave you looking refreshed and prepared to embrace all the joy the holiday season has in store!

Laser Treatments

Exciting news! It’s officially laser season. For optimal results in laser treatments such as skin resurfacing, hair removal, and intense pulsed light, we recommend scheduling them during the fall and winter months. This period is ideal because the skin tends to be more sensitive to UV rays post-laser procedures, and the reduced sunlight hours minimize exposure. Laser treatments are perfect for addressing various skin imperfections like wrinkles, sagging, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and discoloration with minimal downtime and discomfort. At Reston Dermatology, we offer an array of advanced laser treatments to help you achieve a younger and healthier appearance.


Despite diligent diet and exercise, it’s common to contend with persistent body fat in certain areas that can leave you feeling discontent with your overall appearance. Exercise-resistant fat pockets tend to accumulate in trouble spots like the legs, belly, arms, and sides, often influenced by factors such as age and genetics. While wishing them away remains ineffective, freezing offers a practical solution. CoolSculpting enables precise targeting of problematic areas through controlled cooling, resulting in the permanent elimination of fat cells. Subsequently, your body naturally expels these deactivated fat cells through gradual and natural processes.

Microneedling with PRP

Microneedling with PRP represents a recent advancement in skincare, harnessing the regenerative properties of platelets found in your blood. Often dubbed the “vampire facial,” this technique involves drawing a small blood sample to extract platelets. When paired with the collagen-stimulating impact of microneedling, PRP accelerates your body’s natural healing processes, delivering remarkable rejuvenating results. While gaining popularity among celebrities, the procedure is beneficial for individuals experiencing the early signs of wrinkles or sagging skin, offering a non-surgical alternative for those not yet ready to commit to procedures like facelifts.


The realm of minimally invasive skincare solutions is abuzz with talk about injectable dermal fillers. Perfectly suited for today’s fast-paced lifestyles, these in-office treatments are straightforward, swift, and generally painless, allowing individuals to promptly return to their regular daily routines. Those seeking a rapid solution for fine lines, wrinkles, and volume loss will find popular fillers like Juvéderm and Voluma to be excellent choices. These fillers offer a lasting remedy for visibly aging skin, making them an appealing option for anyone seeking a quick and effective fix.


Botox emerges as a highly effective tool in the battle against wrinkles. Diverging from fillers that eliminate wrinkles by filling them with gel, these refined iterations of the botulinum toxin induce temporary muscle paralysis around the forehead and eyes. Through injection, these products not only soften existing wrinkles but also act as a preventive measure against the formation of new ones. The effects of these injectables can endure for several months, providing an effective and lasting solution in the quest for smoother, more youthful skin.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels present a non-invasive method employing a distinct chemical blend to address concerns like uneven skin pigmentation, scars, blemishes, age spots, rough skin, and sun damage. Our range includes light, medium, and deep chemical peels tailored for various areas such as the face, neck, chest, hands, arms, or legs. The selection is based on the severity of the specific issue you aim to tackle and the desired duration of your recovery period.
