Something else we love just as much? Sharing all the ways in which we protect and take care of your skin.


There are multiple ways to combat skin tightening goals—and Green Dermatology & Cosmetic Center, a premier medical and cosmetic dermatology center in Deerfield Beach, on the southern border of Boca Raton, is here to help.


We believe that these four treatments are the most effective and efficient ways to tighten your skin, for various reasons. Each treatment differs from the next and each have their own benefits, so let’s break them down one-by-one.


Microneedling: The “Good” Option

Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment using a device with small, fine needles that make tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin to create new collagen and elastin. Microneedling helps to build collagen and thicken the skin, but instead of only looking great for a couple of days following a facial, the results last much longer. Microneedling is a safe way to fill in areas of scarring, wrinkles and stretch marks without the use of injectables and fillers.



Green Dermatology & Cosmetic Center uses the only FDA approved device on the market: The SkinPen by Bellus Medical. It’s a quick procedure with very little downtime and minimal risk of infection or scarring. The SkinPen uses PRP, platelet-rich plasma to help the body grow new, healthy cells and promote healing. Benefits of the SkinPen with PRP include reducing the signs of aging and improving the appearance of acne scars.


Vivace: The “Better” Choice

The main benefits of choosing Vivace? It is pain-free, requires absolutely no downtime, gives immediate results and improves over time with multiple visits. The procedure uses radiofrequency to contour and tighten the face, neck, hands and body. VIvace focuses on the heat needed to stimulate the collagen production that is necessary to produce tighter, more youthful skin.  It is the even-distribution of radiofrequency that eliminates any signs of discomfort.


Fractional Laser: The “Best Laser” Pick

We offer Fraxel, a proven laser technology that helps to reverse the visible effects of aging.  It works on fine lines and wrinkles, surface scarring, pigmentation, sun damage and even on Actinic Keratosis.  This laser resurfacing procedure takes multiple sessions because only 15-20% of the skin is resurfaced during each treatment.  This helps to ensure that the skin doesn’t endure too much damage at one time, and eliminates a significant amount of downtime.


Green Dermatology & Cosmetic Center is conveniently located in Deerfield Beach at 260 SW Natura Ave, Suite 101, Deerfield Beach, FL 33441.  Complete information on the services they offer can be found at You can reach them for information or to book an appointment at 954-481-0650.
