A Melanoma Grew Large During Quarantine

· Skin Cancer · Comments Off on A Melanoma Grew Large During Quarantine

Back in January, I posted to social media this photo of my patient who developed a big melanoma during quarantine.  After hunkering down for months, she finally went to get her hair done and her hairdresser alerted her to the growth.  She came to see me immediately in December and the biopsy I did showed […]

· Lasers · Comments Off on CO2 Laser Treatment for Festoons – Update

Earlier I posted a video of the CO2 CoolPeel laser treatment to reduce the festoons under my eyes.  Now with these photos, you see what I looked like pre and post-procedure. Festoons appear below the “eye bags” as a mound or bump around the cheekbones.  Or, a festoon could be sagging skin or folds of […]

· Lasers · Comments Off on CoolPeel CO2 Laser Treatment for Festoons

Do you have festoons?  I do.  They are below the “eye bags,” a swollen area appearing as a mound or bump around the cheekbones.  Or, a festoon could be sagging skin or folds of skin above the cheek.  Festoons can be genetic and often get worse with aging, sun exposure, or smoking unless you seek […]

Scientifically they are known as acrochordons. Are your skin […]

Kysse is new for lips

· Fillers · Comments Off on Kysse is new for lips

I injected my patient with the new Restylane Kysse and she looks amazing!  I only used ½ of a syringe, because she did not want “big lips.” That’s the beauty of this new product.  I can use less product and still achieve a nice improvement in volume and texture. Because it is soft and flexible […]
