My wife and I went into Dr. Roger Koreen's office to get our skin checked and a few problem areas treated. We did not have any skin doctor and others we tried had appointments that were over 6 months away. We were pleased to get an appointment not too far in advance. When we got there the office was pleasant and the people nice. Dr Koreen was very friendly and took his time in caring for us. Later, I came back for further treatment and again it was a pleasant experience. I thanked him for his knowledge and ability to help me out. Thanks Dr. Koreen!Marianne WMore reviews
Unfortunately, I have had many experiences with doctors. My father had recommended me to Dr. Koreen about 15 years ago. First you will be greeted by very friendly and warm receptionists. The waiting room is extremely clean and comfortable with plenty of seating, magazines and TV’s. The wait time is always reasonable (10-15mins) considering Dr. Koreen always spends quality time for exam and questions (never rushed). He always educates you on the most modern treatments and offering the best options. Dr. Koreen now treats my teenage kids after many years of superior treatment and second to none care. I strongly trust and highly recommend Dr. Koreen and his staff.Thomas MMore reviews

Enjoy the results of cosmetic dermatology treatments from a skin care physician in Huntington
By Dr. Roger Koreen
Patients come to our office all the time with the desire to look younger. With skin care physician, Dr. Koreen, the Huntington area team at Dermatology & Cosmetic Laser Center is committed to providing cosmetic dermatology treatments that deal with the most visible signs of aging: lines and wrinkles. Injectables such as Botox Cosmetic and Belotero can work together as an affordable and minimally invasive way to take turn back the hands of time.
As we age, the muscles in our face become fatigued from years of repeated facial expressions and lose the ability to fully relax. When this happens dynamic wrinkles form that become permanent fixtures on our face. Botox is most commonly used to address fine lines and wrinkles on the upper half of the face. It can also be used for other issues.
Botox works by blocking the nerve signals that cause the muscles in the face to contract. The result is smoother skin and reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Botox is safe for use on most adults who are between the ages of 18 and 65 years and in good physical and mental health. In your consultation, Dr. Koreen will assess your wrinkles and ask questions about your expectations for treatment.
It is always important to discuss your motivation for Botox treatments, so our team can understand your desired outcome from treatment. Botox is a temporary solution and does not eliminate wrinkles permanently.
Most patients will notice a reduction in wrinkles immediately and will see results continue to improve for several weeks. Results from Botox generally last four to six months, treatments will need to be repeated to maintain a reduction in wrinkles long term.
Botox injections can usually be completed in less than twenty minutes. Patients are free to return to normal daily activities immediately. Side effects from Botox may include minor swelling and bruising near the treated area and can be controlled with ice packs.

Belotero Balance is a type of hyaluronic acid dermal filler that can help minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the face for a more natural appearance. The filler works by adding volume to specific areas of the face, which will smooth out wrinkles and folds. Belotero is unique because the gel is much softer than other fillers, which gives the face more natural contours. Belotero’s smooth consistency also eliminates the risk of lumps below the skin.
Belotero can be used for many different concerns on the face including:
Around the eyes (crow’s feet)
Around the mouth (smoker’s lines)
We may also recommend Belotero for patients who have facial depressions caused by injury or acne, or to help fill in sunken hollows along the cheeks.
How do hyaluronic fillers work?
Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by the body, and when we are younger it helps keep skin plump and hydrated. As we get older, our body begins to produce less hyaluronic acid naturally, which causes laxity and thinning of the skin. As gravity begins to take its toll, individuals will notice that the skin starts to sag, and lines and wrinkles begin forming. Belotero replenishes the missing hyaluronic acid, restoring hydration, filling in sunken hollows for a more youthful appearance.
The Belotero Procedure
Like other injectables, a tiny needle is used to inject Belotero. Patients will feel a needle prick as the filler is being injected. There should be little to no discomfort, however a topical anesthetic is available for individuals who are sensitive to needles.
Treatments require no downtime and can usually be completed in less than 30 minutes. Common side effects may include inflammation, redness, or itching near the treatment site. This should go away within a couple of days.
Results from Belotero can be seen immediately and will begin to gradually wear off after six months. Patients can schedule treatments every 6 to 12 months to maintain results.
