Clear skin, prevent scars with professional acne treatments
Acne is one of the most prevalent skin conditions seen by dermatologists. This condition is most often associated with the teen years. However, acne is not only a teen problem. It is also not the result of a lack of cleanliness and may develop even in the person who is mindful of what he or she eats on a regular basis. The potential causes of acne are as complex as the various commercial lotions and creams touted as efficient acne-fighters.

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.
Defy the effects of gravity and cheat time with anti-aging treatments
Does it feel like the years are catching up with you? If your face is starting to reflect the passing of time and the effects of gravity, you can turn back the clock by asking us about one of our popular anti-aging treatments.

Botox
This treatment utilizes a special neurotoxin which is safely administered to problem muscles to stop them from contracting and causing wrinkles. It will work mostly for wrinkles caused by facial expressions (crow’s feet, frown lines, forehead lines, etc.)

Dermal Fillers
Fillers are useful for wrinkles that are most obviously caused by gravity and a lack of skin elasticity. Often used for wrinkled cheeks, this treatment works by supplying your skin with essential substances like hyaluronic acid to improve elasticity and volume.

Laser treatments
Laser and light treatments can be used in a wide variety of ways to achieve dramatic anti-aging results. These treatments often reach deep below the skin’s surface to encourage the natural production of collagen and other substances that produce tight, youthful skin.

Chemical peels
These treatments work in a similar manner to laser treatments but use chemicals to achieve the results instead. By removing old skin, chemical peels force the skin to produce new, younger skin at a faster rate.

Microdermabrasion
Much like chemical peels, microdermabrasion uses a special device to quickly buffer away old skin cells, leaving you with fresh, undamaged new skin.
