Halloween Skin Care

9 October 2018, Comments Comments Off on Halloween Skin Care

During the Halloween season, more and more people are wearing make-up or putting some sort of product on their skin. This can cause skin conditions to arise though if certain preventative measures are not taken. So, what are some things you can do to avoid any adverse skin reactions?

Halloween Makeup Application

As you may know, removing make-up before bed is important, but that alone is not enough (especially for those with sensitive skin). Some people have pores that are prone to deposits of oils which can lead to a condition known as acne cosmetica, a skin condition characterized by reddened bumps and blocked pores on the cheeks, forehead, and chin. The best way to avoid this is to apply products that are lighter in weight, as they are less likely to clog the pores. Try using powders instead of creams.

Some other skin conditions that can result from certain make-ups or products are irritant contact dermatitis and allergic contact dermatitis. Irritant contact dermatitis can be characterized as burning and irritation on the skin, whereas allergic contact dermatitis is a more traditional allergic reaction usually characterized by itching, blisters or swelling. Many times, preservatives and fragrance ingredients are the causes of these skin conditions. Accordingly, products that are labeled fragrance-free and hypoallergenic (less likely to cause an allergic reaction) are the best for keeping your skin looking good.

If you believe you are experiencing any of these conditions, call our office at 716-688-0020 today to schedule an appointment.

What To Know About Laser Hair Removal

30 January 2015, Comments Comments Off on What To Know About Laser Hair Removal

What is Laser Hair Removal?


Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that removes unwanted hair from various areas on the body using a laser. The treatment is performed by an experienced medical provider and is an outpatient procedure. The laser used is an intense flashing light applied to the area being treated. The beam penetrates the epidermis to reach the hair follicle where it reduces future growth. Laser hair removal is an effective means of slowing the growth process, and in some cases permanently stops new hair growth. For permanent results multiple sessions are required and results are never guaranteed. It is important to note that different skin pigments and hair colors produce different results.Laser Hair Removal
