Big benefits in a “micro” needle
There are many benefits for patients in the Houston, TX area who are interested in rejuvenation of the skin. The skin’s texture and tone will improve, certain conditions such as acne can be treated, and fine lines and wrinkles may be reduced. One of the most popular treatments for skin rejuvenation is that of microneedling.

Do you understand your eczema?
If you have recurring rashes and crusty or scaly skin patches, it is possible you either have an allergy or a common condition called eczema. Eczema can be a difficult condition to live with, but with the right care from your dermatologist, you can learn to manage it.

When you’re at home, try following these tips to prevent flare-ups and minimize symptoms:
  • Moisturize daily - Moisturize with a medicated or unscented moisturizer after baths and before bed.
  • Avoid heat - Hot water showers and baths can dry out your skin and being hot and sweaty can irritate your eczema, so only rinse off with warm or cold water.
  • Limit stress - Stress can make your symptoms flare up, so find ways to relax to manage symptoms.
  • Avoid harsh chemicals - Avoid skin contact with alcohol-based cleaning products, household cleaners, and even perfumed products like detergents.
  • Dress well - Learn which fabrics irritate your skin, such as wool or synthetic fabrics, and stick to baggy, cotton clothes to avoid irritating your skin.
Sometimes, these lifestyle changes may not be enough to help you successfully beat eczema, so make sure you talk to us about getting professional medical treatment as well. We may be able to prescribe special skin products for topical use, or you may need to take oral medications to manage your symptoms. You may also find some laser and light-based treatments can help your skin if you suffer from severe eczema.
