· Fillers · Comments Off on Facial Rejuvenation

A male patient before and after Sculptra injections - showing facial rejuvenation.

Sculptra is a biostimulatory filler – it stimulates your body to produce collagen and elastin in the area it is injected.

This reinforces your skin’s inner structure that has been lost over time and restores facial volume.

Made of poly-L-lactic acid, Sculptra can last up to two years – much longer than hyaluronic acid fillers.

I’m offering two Sculptra packages through Dec. 9th:

  • Purchase 2 vials for $1450 and receive a free area of Dysport (up to 50 units)

Or

  • Purchase 4 vials for $2750 and receive 1 free Restylane filler

All injections administered at Dermatology Boutique by Dr. Golomb. These specials cannot be combined with Cherry Financing.

Exosomes rejuvenate and regenerate the skin

· Exosomes · Comments Off on Exosomes rejuvenate and regenerate the skin

Photo of woman and graphic shows how benefits of exosomes increase with each treatment.

 

I use exosomes as an alternative to PRP.  Exosomes rejuvenate and regenerate the skin, just like PRP.  But, unlike PRP, no blood draw is required.

Exosomes are derived from stem cells and have beneficial healing properties that are especially useful after a heavy laser treatment or microneedling with radio frequency. The exosomes accelerate healing time, calm the skin and reduce redness.

This article from Allure Magazine is a good primer on exosomes.

BBL HERO works on most skin types.  It’s comfortable, gentle and a very quick procedure because the BBL HERO handpiece covers more skin area.

Most patients see improvement after just one treatment.

20% Off Sun Protective Clothing

· Skin Cancer · Comments Off on 20% Off Sun Protective Clothing

BloqUV is a North Miami company that offers sun protective clothing and is giving my patients a 20% discount. I am impressed with the softness of the fabric and how it wicks away moisture. I love the variety of fashionable styles in lots of vibrant colors.

I am not affiliated with the company, nor do I receive any compensation. I do believe sun protective clothing is an important part of protecting yourself from the damaging rays of the sun. In addition to sunscreen, wear protective UPF clothing, a hat and seek out shade, especially from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Go to bloquv.com and enter this code: DERMBOUTIQUE20 to save 20% on your purchase. You may use this code three times. Shipping is free on orders over $100.

Prevent Face Mask Irritation

· COVID-19 · Comments Off on Prevent Face Mask Irritation

A recent study found that about half of us who wear face masks will suffer from acne, dermatitis, itch, or pressure injuries.  The likelihood of developing one of these conditions is determined by how long you wear a mask.  Facial skin problems begin to appear with 4 to 6 continuous hours of mask-wearing.

We should continue wearing masks and washing our hands as we enter the flu season.  You can take some preventative measures to avoid irritation from your face mask:

– stick to mild, fragrance-free, and non-comedogenic skincare
– skip makeup (go without foundation, powder and blush)
– just use a light moisturizer and sunscreen on your face if you’re going to be wearing a face mask. I have moisturizers available at my office that also include SPF—great for when you are wearing a mask.
– limit face washing to two times/day and after sweating
– apply moisturizer before and after you wear your mask
– throw away a disposable mask after one day’s use
– cloth masks should be laundered after one day’s use

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.

Excel V laser erases stubborn brown spot

· Lasers · Comments Off on Excel V laser erases stubborn brown spot

This was a stubborn brown spot.  First, I confirmed it was benign with a biopsy before we began to treat it cosmetically.

It took five monthly treatments with the Excel V laser to get this result.  Both Mylene and I did the laser treatments for this patient.

Once clear, my patient has kept the spot from coming back with Obagi dark spot lightener and corrector cream and a Retinoid.  The “after” photo is 3 years after treatment.  My patient is glad to have it gone and she’s obviously committed to the regimen so it doesn’t reappear.

This diligent maintenance is important!  Otherwise, daily activity, sunlight and environmental pollutants will cause recurrence.

My patient granted Dermatology Boutique permission to post her photos on Dr. Golomb’s social media and patient communications. I am grateful that she allowed me to share her photos to help others.

Fraxel vs. CO2 Laser Treatments

· Lasers · Comments Off on Fraxel vs. CO2 Laser Treatments

I was recently asked about the strength of a Fraxel vs CO2 laser.

CO2 lasers have always been the best choice for fine lines, deeper wrinkles and acne scars.  They remove tissue (ablate) resulting in some tightening as well.

Before and After CO2 CoolPeel Laser

Before and After CO2 CoolPeel Laser

Fraxel is a brand of erbium laser that is also very nice for acne scars and texture.  Fraxel was one of the first fractionated lasers, hence the choice of the brand name “fraxel.”

Fractionated lasers leave areas of tissue sparing therefore there is quicker healing and less chance of side effects.

My CO2 laser is also fractionated, allowing for quicker healing and less side effects such as hypopigmentation (light or white spots).

CO2 lasers can be adjusted in power (depth of penetration) and type of beam.  The Cool Peel technique removes tissue — slender columns with less thermal injury than traditional fraxel.

Healing can be very fast depending on the amount of energy and spacing of energy beams.  I can customize this for each patient, depending on whether they want a light, medium or heavy treatment.

The more energy and closer the spacing (fractionation) the “stronger” the treatment, and hence more downtime.

For me, there is nothing like CO2 laser!  That’s why I have it.

We also have a Clear+Brilliant laser at my office.  It’s made by the same manufacturer as Fraxel.  It has less power so the recovery is quicker.  It’s a mini Fraxel.

Of course, the choice depends on your skin type and expectations.

The question, which is stronger, is a good one, but they are different devices.

It’s like comparing a BMW to a Porsche.

Both are amazing!
