The face mask you wear matters

· In the News · Comments Off on The face mask you wear matters

 

  • Scientific simulations have demonstrated that if 80% of the population wore face masks, the pandemic spread would slow to a point even better than a lockdown.
  • Masks with one-way exhalation valves can expel droplets of the coronavirus. They’ve been banned by hospitals, airlines and major U.S. cities.  If you wear a mask with a valve to my office, we’ll ask you to change into a mask that we provide.
  • While a one-layer cloth face mask reduces droplets, two layers are better.
  • The more form fitting your face mask, the better. Your face mask should cover your mouth and nose with no gaps at the sides.
  • The jury is out on neck gaiters. One reason is that they are one layer, another is the polyester fabric most are made of.  One study found they reduced large droplets into smaller ones and expelled those droplets.
  • Bandanas have also been found to be not particularly effective as a face mask.
  • A recent study in Japan found that a plastic face shield without a mask does not stop the spread of the coronavirus. A face shield or goggles will protect the mucous membranes of your eyes.  A face shield should always be used in conjunction with a mask.
  • Masks are not recommended for children under 2 years of age due to the risk of suffocation.

My beautiful patient is in her early 20s.

I gave her the fuller lips she desired with Juvederm Ultra.

The after photo was taken immediately after injections.

Chemical Peel results comparable to Fraxel Laser

· Chemical Peel · Comments Off on Chemical Peel results comparable to Fraxel Laser

One day after a strong chemical peel.  Yes, I know it’s a bit scary because that’s me!  But how can I recommend it to my patients if I haven’t tried it and experienced the after effects.

All of these photos are from one day after the SkinCeuticals Advanced Corrective Peel.  On the photos where you don’t see red, ISDIN Skin Drops are camouflaging the work of the peel with full coverage.  My face was reddish brown for at least three days.  The peeling started on day three and continued through day seven, with light flaking lasting one month.

I had resolution of my sun spots.  My skin has a smoother, more youthful appearance and a radiant glow that has lasted more than six months.  The results were amazing and in my judgment are as good as a Fraxel laser treatment at less than one third the cost.

SkinCeuticals Advanced Corrective Peel contains three key ingredients:

  • resorcinol which reduces the appearance of discoloration and improves skin tone and radiance
  • salicylic acid which is a beta hydroxy acid that improves signs of discoloration and photodamage
  • lactic acid exfoliates the surface of the skin for improved radiance

I’m up on the latest techniques

· Continuing Education, Cosmetic Procedures · Comments Off on I’m up on the latest techniques

I just attended the Swift Beauty masterclass on Facial Injection Anatomy in New York City.

 

@drarthurswift pioneered a revolutionary approach to non-surgical facial enhancement.  He says, “Seeking beauty is not just about restoring youthfulness – it resides in pleasing facial proportions.”

I was excited to learn about Dr. Swift’s facial injection procedure that follows Leonardo Da Vinci’s mathematical principle of beauty and harmony through “divine” proportion. I was pleased that his masterclass also emphasized patient safety as well.

Looking forwarding to sharing all I learned with my patients!

Here I am with Dr. Shino Bay Aguilera in the Grimaldi Forum convention center. Dr. Aguilera is from Ft. Lauderdale and was a speaker at the conference. We both go the extra mile for our patients by staying up on the latest techniques in cosmetic dermatology.

I can’t wait to show you some new tricks I learned at this meeting. Stay tuned for some live demos on social media!

Gauge earring earlobe repair

· Earlobe Repair · Comments Off on Gauge earring earlobe repair

Repairing the large holes created by gauge earrings will take about an hour.  It’s a simple in-office procedure.

I’ll inject lidocaine into in each earlobe so you won’t feel anything as I cut away the excess skin.  You’ll have minimal discomfort afterward.  The “after” photo of my patient was taken three weeks after the repair.

For best results, I recommend you remove your gauge earrings one to two months prior to the procedure, this allows the hole to shrink a little on its own.

Are you ready to return to more natural looking ear lobes?  Give me a call 855-465-6621.
