Most aging concerns can be addressed with the a course of treatment that an experienced skin rejuvenation specialist recommends.

Age Spots

Commonly referred to as liver spots, age spots are one of the most common signs of aging skin. Age spots usually appear on the skin as dark spots, and are the result of long-term exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light, either from the sun or from the use of commercial tanning beds and tanning lamps. At Bella Dermatology, we know this can cause higher concentrations of melanin to appear in clumps. Several genetic factors may also play a role in age spot development.

Bella Dermatology Treatments: Chemical peels, dermabrasion, photofacials, laser rejuvenation.

Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Dr. Sharpe MD will remind you that as you get older, your skin loses some of its natural elasticity. A combination of reduced natural oils, exposure to the sun and the natural reduction of fat within the deep layers of the skin can cause pronounced lines and creases to appear, as well as the skin to become loose and saggy. Fine lines and wrinkles have always been a major aging concern for many people, especially those living in South Locust Grove, looking to retain a youthful appearance throughout their lives.

Bella Dermatology Treatments: Botox, injectable fillers, lasers, chemical peels, and dermabrasions.


Melasma is another common aging concern in South Locust Grove. Often appearing as brown or grayish-brown patches on the face and other places on the body, melasma begins to appear over time on parts of the body that have been exposed to the sun. Dr. Sharpe MD knows hormones also seem to play a role in triggering the condition. Women, especially those who are pregnant, are far more likely than men to suffer from melasma, according industry research.
