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.

    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.

    Restore Your Skin’s Natural Beauty With Sublative

    26 August 2019, Comments Comments Off on Restore Your Skin’s Natural Beauty With Sublative

    Here at the Neiman Dermatology Building we are committed to providing our patients with the latest and most advanced treatments in skin rejuvenation. The Sublative RF Skin Tightening in particular is probably the most cutting-edge.

    Rather than using laser or light, this procedure harnesses radio frequency energy. The radio frequency energy heats up the underlying layers of skin, stimulating collagen production, leading to more youthful looking skin. Many patients have a noticeable improvement immediately after being treated, and the skin actually continues to improve over the next few months as collagen production increases. In as little as 3-4 treatments, Sublative RF Skin Tightening provides effective acne scar treatment, anti-wrinkle treatment and overall rejuvenation and toning of the skin.

    Sublative Patient Results

    If you would like to learn more about the process or would like to schedule a free consultation contact our office today.

    As discussed in a previous post, eczema is an autoimmune skin condition that can be worsened by certain irritants. The key to managing eczema is to avoid those irritants and appropriately care for your skin. Some ways to do that include…

    Caring for Eczema

    • MOISTURIZE, MOISTURIZE, MOISTURIZE!!!!!!!!! Use either a cream or lotion, depending on which is best for your skin specifically.
    • Moisturize immediately after showering and then as needed throughout the day. Try using Cetaphil or Cerave.
    • Take cooler, shorter showers. Will help prevent your skin from being stripped from too much moisture.
    • Wash with gentle soaps. Dove soap, Purpose bar soap or Basis bar soap are all great options.
    • Soak in bath oils. Soothes the skin and helps to alleviate itching.
    • Put a humidifier in the bedroom. Adds moisture to the air, thus providing the skin with more hydration.
    • Clean your clothes with products that are fragrance and dye free. Try Tide (free & gentle) detergent, Downy (free & gentle) fabric softener, and Bounce (free & gentle) dryer sheets.

     

    Since eczema is a chronic skin condition it is also important to use medications prescribed as directed. With effective treatment, you can keep eczema under control.
