New study highlights sunscreen issues

· Sunscreen · Comments Off on New study highlights sunscreen issues

A new sunscreen study by the Clean Label Project is very illuminating. Take a look.

One finding confirms what we know about the role of antioxidants in protecting your skin from the harmful rays of the sun. I recommend layering Skin Better’s Alto Defense Serum under your sunscreen for this antioxidant protection. Alto is amazing and reduces the appearance of skin redness. Studies show less redness compared with sunscreen alone.

The two sunscreens I recommend are ISDIN or our own Dermatology Boutique brand.  Read more about these products.

Treatment deflates keloid

· Keloid (raised scar) · Comments Off on Treatment deflates keloid

Keloids are raised scars and if you have one, you might call it a scar gone crazy. They can be painful and also itch. When they grow large on a prominent location on the body, patients’ self-esteem can suffer.

This patient had a large keloid on her chest. We started injections in December and the “after” photo you see is from a few days ago in early May. I chose injections over surgical removal because I felt surgery would risk recurrence, which could be larger and worse.

After her first appointment and injection I suggested she begin using Serica moisturizing scar cream.

As you see from the “after” photo she does have some loss of pigment from the Kenalog injections, but my expectations are that the pigment will normalize with time. As long as there is no trauma to the area, I expect no recurrence of the keloid.

I suggested that she use Obagi Exfoderm on the area to keep the skin cells turning over.

If you want to learn more about keloids and their treatment, the American Academy of Dermatology has a great resource online that covers the symptoms, causes, treatments and tips on prevention of keloids.



Learning is a life-long journey!

· Continuing Education · Comments Off on Learning is a life-long journey!

I just returned from Monte-Carlo, Monaco where I attended the Aesthetic & Anti-Aging Medicine World Congress (AMWC).

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!

Threads Minimize Acne Scars

Threads create lift and stimulate collagen!

Here I’m treating Mylene’s acne scars with threads.

The threads make a mesh cushion under the scars giving the skin support. Collagen will build, and over time it will look even better.

Threads are a fabulous tool for me to help patients with their concerns. And a treatment with threads is also very affordable!

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.
