Why a Chemical Peel is the Perfect Treatment for Your Skin

2 October 2019, Comments Comments Off on Why a Chemical Peel is the Perfect Treatment for Your Skin

Looking to improve the look and appearance of your skin? A chemical peel can do just that! In this treatment, a chemical solution is gently applied to the skin causing it to exfoliate and peel off. The new regenerated skin is typically smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin.

Chemical Peel

There are a number of different chemical peels that we offer and they include:

  • Glycolic GA Peel. Enhances skin tone and texture. Minimizes pore size and has anti-aging benefits.
  • Jessner JR Peel. A cocktail of three different peels that is ideal for softening unwanted fine lines and mild to moderate hyperpigmentation.
  • Mandelic MA Peel. A superficial peel that is perfect for rosacea, redness relief, and sensitive skin.
  • Pyruvic PA Peel. A superficial peel that’s perfect for oily, acne-prone skin. Mainly used for light to moderate premature skin aging.
  • Salicylic SA Peel. A 30% salicylic peel that’s also good for oily, acne-prone skin.

  • If you would like to learn more about chemical peels and if one may be right for you, schedule an appointment today with our aesthetician Lauren.

    Stretch Marks: What Are They & How To Treat Them

    20 September 2019, Comments Comments Off on Stretch Marks: What Are They & How To Treat Them

    Stretch marks, also known as striae, are a type of scarring that occurs on the skin due to a sudden fluctuation in its size. This abrupt change causes the collagen and elastin to rupture, leaving behind narrow lines or streaks as the skin heals. Stretch Marks

    Although they can develop anywhere on the body, they usually reside on the abdomen, breasts, and thighs. Stretch marks are most common in women after pregnancy, but they can also develop from rapid weight gain or loss.

    When they first show up, they typically have a pinkish, red hue and may feel slightly raised. Eventually, that color will fade and they level off into the skin. Their appearance may improve over time, but as is the case with any scar, they are permanent.

    There are some products and treatments however that can make stretch marks less noticeable. They include:

  • Ceramide Moisturizer. This will help hold the skin together and retain moisture.
  • SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic. This vitamin C serum helps to improve the appearance of fine lines by firming the skin.
  • Micro-needling. This cosmetic procedure uses a bunch of tiny needles to make small perforations to the skin to induce collagen production. This in turn plumps up the skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines.
  • RF Skin Tightening. A noninvasive treatment that heats the under layers of skin to stimulate collagen, causing the skin to look fuller and tighter.
  •  

    With any of these options, it is important to be patient and understand that results will not be seen immediately. If stretch marks are something that is bothering you, contact our office today to see what options are best for your situation specifically.

    The Importance of Dermoscopy

    10 September 2019, Comments Comments Off on The Importance of Dermoscopy

    Dermoscopy, also known as dermatoscopy, is a noninvasive technique primarily used to examine skin lesions. Utilizing a handheld device called a dermatoscope, the objective is to differentiate between benign and malignant tumors.

    Featuring a high-quality magnifier and a polarized light system, the dermatoscope is able to see areas of the skin not visible to the naked eye. This significantly reduces the rate of unnecessary biopsies and leads to more accurate melanoma detection. Aside from melanoma detection, dermoscopy can also be used to diagnose fungal infections, hair/scalp diseases, warts, and even scabies.

    Dermoscopy

    At our office, all of our providers have been specially trained in dermoscopy. If they notice anything of suspicion, they will follow it very closely. Pictures will be taken, stored, and compared with pictures at the patient’s next visit. If the lesion evolves or changes, it may require a biopsy. If the lesion does not, it most likely is benign.

    As you can see, dermoscopy is an important clinical tool and something that no dermatologist (MD, NP or PA) should go without. If you have something of concern on your skin and would like one of our providers to check it out, contact our office today.

    Rid Yourself of Acne for the Fall Crunch

    30 August 2019, Comments Comments Off on Rid Yourself of Acne for the Fall Crunch

    As discussed in a past post, acne is a common skin condition that affects millions of people. Although it may only appear on the skin, the effects can go much deeper. Many sufferers deal with anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem. With the start of the school year, those problems are only amplified.

    So, what exactly causes acne and what can you do to control it? We recently sat down with our aesthetician Lauren Battaglia and asked her just that. Here’s what she had to say…

    “Acne occurs when the pores on the skin become blocked with oil, bacteria, and dead skin cells.  This causes the inflammation that appears on the skin. Working as an aesthetician over the years, I have helped a number of patients with varying degrees of acne. I put them on a great regime of treatments and products.”

    Some products that she says are the most effective for combating acne are as follows:

    • SkinCeuticals LHA Cleansing Gel – “This cleanser is great because it decongests pores, smooths out skin texture, and brightens the skin. A must for any skin care routine.”
    • SkinCeuticals Clarifying Clay Masque – “Amazing mask! I love, love, love it! It decongests the pores as well, removes excess oil and helps to calm the skin.”
    • SkinCeuticals Blemish + Age Defense – “One of my favorite serums! It’s oil-free and helps to reduce the formation of acne. It even improves clogged pores as well.”

     

    Lauren also offers a facial specifically for acne. It consists of a deep, thorough cleansing and extraction that breaks down impurities, sebum, dead skin cells, and blackheads. “It’s really a must for teens or others struggling with stubborn acne,” she says.

    With skin type and acne severity varying from person to person, certain products/treatments may work better for some than others. If you would like to meet with Lauren to discuss a customized skin care regime for yourself, contact our office today.
