Dupixent for Eczema, Pacific Heights, San Francisco*
Get In Touch
This patient originally came in to address dark undereye circles and wrinkles, which she had been told was due to aging. She previously had disappointing results with cosmetic injections. No diagnoses or education was given regarding the root cause of her wrinkles. Dr. Austin assessed and explained her dark circles were actually caused by atopic dermatitis (eczema)! Filler never would have addressed her concern. Dr. Austin also explained how the side effects of eczema can include severe wrinkling and darkening of the skin. This was "eye opening" for this patient because she had seen so many other doctors in the past. Dr. Austin got her on a prescription skincare regimen (including growth factors SkinMedica TNS+ and Neocutis Biocream Firm). But most importantly, her eczema was directly addressed with the FDA-approved injectable Dupixent, greatly improving her quality of life. 3 months later, this beautiful patient was healed, and her skin and collagen renewed! We can't get over how many years younger she looks with improved skin quality and firmness. Now, Dr. Austin and the patient can start focusing on anti-aging with fillers and neuromodulators. We firmly believe in treating the root cause of a patient's skin issue before filler injections. Proper diagnosis and treatment yield even more beautiful results. Be sure to choose a board-certified dermatologist.
