Majority of cases are associated with exposure to ultraviolet radiation from the sun.  The best way to protect yourself and prevent skin cancer is by using sunscreen every day. UV rays are strongest during the summer but they can cause damage all year round. So, apply sunscreen every day, for every season and for every skin color. Be sure to reapply every 2 hours or after swimming or sweating. Top 3 Reasons To Protect the Skin You’re In:  More people are diagnosed with skin cancer each year in the U.S than all other cancers combined  Skin cancer is one of the most preventable types of cancer  Exposure to UV rays is the biggest contributor to age-related skin changes such as […]

Skinceuticals and SkinMedica

Skincare: Top 3 options that everyone should be on & why

Skincare options seem endless these days so here are our Top 3 picks that everyone should be on and why. Morning Antioxidant Serums: Skinceuticals CE Ferulic/Phloretin CF – This antiaging and collagen boosting serum is a potent antioxidant which protects skin against free radical damage caused by UVA and UVB rays.  Free radical damage leads to visible signs of aging skin.  CE ferulic is best for normal to dry skin types, while Phloretin CF is for normal to oily skin types.  We call this liquid gold because the first time you use it, you will notice your skin glow with brightness, and it protects against photodamage. Hyaluronic acid: HA 5 by SkinMedica or HA Intensifier by Skinceuticals – Both of these are great for any skin type and promote smoothness, plumpness and firmness of the skin and is an excellent skin hydrator.  HA5 is showing promising results in helping Botox/Dysport […]

“Erase your skin’s past” with Medical Microneedling

Are you wondering what all the hype is about with Microneedling?  Well, the medical grade version of microneedling is a safe, effective and a consistent treatment where tiny needles puncture the skin.  This treatment stimulates inflammation and a healing response which in turn promotes skin renewal, repair, and rejuvenation.  Natural growth factors are released to stimulate reformation and fresh collagen. Collagen reduction for all skin types Did you know that our collagen decreases by an average of 1.7% every year beginning in our mid 20’s? It’s hard to believe but the proof is in the research.  Microneedling is safe for all skin types, which is not true for chemical peels and laser treatments, which is why we love this treatment so much. Medical grade microneedling versus non-medical grade Microneedling is also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, Percutaneous Collagen Induction, and Scar Rejuvenation Therapy.  If you want the most bang for […]

When should I start using Botox?

This is a question I get asked very often.   The answer is not black and white, it is a gray area with many different opinions.  Men and women are looking to Botox for different reasons, some want to defy the aging process, some want to grow older gracefully, some want to use Botox preventatively and some want to diminish their expressions because of the profession they are in; think Psychiatrists and Lawyers.  There is no definitive age of when Botox should be started even as preventative.  It definitely is more difficult to obtain a “perfect” result when a  75 year old patient comes in and has neglected their skin and never had Botox. These lines have been formed for many years and one treatment of Botox will not completely erase lines, it will soften them.  If a 25 year old patient comes in and has lines at rest, they […]

Are daily skincare regimens really that important?

YES!!!   While I love Botox, Filler, Kybella, Chemical Peels, etc.. I always tell my patients how important a daily skincare regimen is.  I equate it to running a marathon, climbing Kilimanjaro or doing a triathlon.  The important part is how you train for the big day, skincare is exactly the same.  There are so many wonderful, medical grade skincare products, backed by a ton of research.  For example, HA 5 from SkinMedica is currently being researched along with Botox to prove that it extends the length of Botox. I am a perfect example, my Botox only lasted two to two and a half months, once I started using HA 5, my Botox lasted 3 months to the day.  There are practices in Southern California which are currently studying this exact phenomenon.  Who would not want to extend their Botox with a wonderful moisturizer made with Hyaluronic Acid which also […]

The Importance of Sunscreen

Making it part of your daily skincare routine We hope you all are enjoying the extra hour of sunlight this Spring and think it’s an excellent time to discuss sunscreen.  Not only is sunscreen important when it’s sunny out, but is just as important when it’s cloudy, raining or snowing.  The reason is that UV (ultraviolet) rays are the part of sunshine which damages our skin and can cause skin cancer.   UV rays are broken down into 3 categories: UVA rays which cause aging of the skin and cause wrinkles. Some skin cancers are caused by UVA rays and are found in tanning beds. UVB rays are the rays which cause sunburn and have a higher likelihood of causing skin cancers.   UVC rays are part of welding torches and mercury lamps.  The most important thing to remember is that 10-15 minutes of unprotected skin can cause damage. It’s […]
