$100 off your first syringe of Redensity

RHA Redensity is a new filler for the face and neck.  It is excellent for vertical lip lines, necklace lines and crow’s feet because it is “stretchy” and moves with your face.  It provides a fine-tuned finish to these delicate areas.  Try Redensity and get $100 off of your first syringe!

This filler is formulated differently.  It hydrates and nourishes the skin, repairing the skin on the face, neck and neckline with three antioxidants, eight amino acids, two minerals and a vitamin.

Before and After

Skin Tightening

The Lutronic Genius provides smoother, tighter skin via microneedling with radio frequency.  It’s been called a non-surgical facelift.   As you can see with just three treatments, the sagging and crepey skin on the neck is significantly improved.  Wrinkles on the face and neck are also decreased.  The three treatments were spaced about four to six weeks apart.

Lutronic Genius uses high intensity focused RF (radio frequency) through gold-plated micro-needles to stimulate collagen. This technology addresses a number of skin concerns and provides long-lasting results.  My patients love it!

Ear lobe repair – gauge earring hole

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 on the right 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.

How the sun affects skin of color

Sunscreen · Comments Off on How the sun affects skin of color

 

My patients with darker skin tones also experience the damaging effects of the sun, but sometimes differently than their lighter-skinned counterparts.  The sun may not cause as many wrinkles, but hyperpigmentation and melasma are more of a problem if you have dark skin.

In addition, something called post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is more of an issue for skin of color.   This is hyperpigmentation that develops at the site of an injury or inflammation that is made worse with sun exposure.  The inflammation can be acne, and patients find the resulting dark spots disturbing.

UV radiation also causes damage in skin of color and can result in skin cancer.  Unfortunately, because of beliefs that dark skin protects one from the sun, patients with skin of color are diagnosed with skin cancer at a more advanced stage.

Because of the propensity for pigmentation, patients with skin of color should select a sunscreen with iron oxides.  Research has shown that using a sunscreen with iron oxides gives greater protection to the block visible light that causes this skin discoloration.  Even though iron oxide might be listed as an “inactive ingredient” on the label, it is providing additional protection if the product has least 2% iron oxide.

You may have to look up your product online to see the full list of all sunscreen ingredients.  Sometimes only the “active ingredients” are listed on the product label.  Iron oxides will not be listed as a sunscreen ingredient.

Tinted sunscreens often have iron oxides and this is why I believe tinted sunscreens are much better for the face.  If your skin is dark and the tinted sunscreen you select is not dark enough, put your foundation on top of the sunscreen.  Also, we are happy to have you test the tinted sunscreens we sell in the office.
