Check your partner’s skin, check yourself
Article 1 ImageDid you know??? Skin cancer is highly preventable. It’s also highly curable when detected early. Yet, it’s estimated less than one-third of Americans examine their skin for melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer. Plus, more than half of Americans don’t know what to look for when it comes to melanoma.

As your partners in health, the Dermatology team hopes you’re already on a regular schedule of skin checks. When you can’t be at the office, we recommend checking your skin at home. Remember: “Check your partner. Check yourself.” You may notice anomalies on a loved one that they otherwise wouldn’t be able to see, even with monthly examinations at home. Think of your “ABCDE’s” when checking skin:
  • A - Asymmetrical spots
  • B - Borders that aren’t clearly defined
  • C - Colors that are varied, such as black and tan growth
  • D - Diameter of more than 6 millimeters, about the size of a pencil eraser
  • E - Evolving shapes, sizes, colors, or other changes like sudden itching
If you’re confused about what to look for, just ask! And when in doubt about any changes, call immediately. Don’t wait for your next prescheduled appointment.
Frustrated by a flurry of fillers? A guide to your best products
Article 1 ImageThere is power in having choices. But the Dermal filler market can be overwhelming. Your trusted Cosmetic Dermatologist demystifies the abundance of fillers on the market, arriving at the best option for you. Presenters at this summer’s Cosmetic Surgery and Aesthetic Dermatology Meeting offer a quick guide to today’s injectables:
  • These are not Grandma’s fillers. There used to be fine and hefty products. Modern fillers treat nearly any facial concern, and do so without looking like you’ve “had work done.”
  • Think in terms of products and not product. Today’s fillers are highly-specialized. Add volume to your pucker and add a glowing, line-free appearance, for example, but do so with two different fillers to achieve the results you’re after.
  • Fillers are always being introduced and improved upon. HA-based fillers have been a staple; however, a new class of injectables with flexible qualities allow natural movement without the bulk when smiling. Advanced technology renders particularly smooth gels that are customized to your needs, whether cheeks need support or lips need plumping.
With some fillers, you may not need maintenance for two years! What are you waiting for? Call to enjoy the natural, lasting results.
Patient Testimonial
5 Star Image
"They have always been willing to fit me in if a new problem comes up, and this means a lot to me. I mainly see Ami and she is so sweet and so great with kids, but all providers have been great. They don't make you come back for same day procedures when possible very important to me as I have young kids."
