Love fillers, but want a filler that looks even more natural and lasts longer?

Or, have you always wanted to try fillers but didn’t want to look “done?” This is the event for you!

You are invited to a very special Virtual Event highlighting my new, exclusive new line of fillers: The RHA Collection.  It’s a Swiss innovation, popular in Europe, now approved for use in the U.S. 

Join me online FEBRUARY 24 at 6:30pm

Register today at https://www.dermboutiqueevent.com/

The woman who developed RHA wanted to design a filler as close to the body’s natural hyaluronic acid as possible to achieve a soft, natural look.  RHA stands for “Resilient Hyaluronic Acid.”

What Makes RHA different from other fillers?

  • It is very smooth, with no lumps and bumps.
  • It integrates with the tissue for a very natural look.
  • Lasts longer than other fillers, up to 15 months.
  • Designed to perform in the most dynamic areas of the face without looking stiff or unnatural.

RHA is exclusive to experienced injectors and I am thrilled to be one of 15 medical practices in Broward County Florida selected to offer it.

At my Virtual Event, I will discuss and demonstrate this new line of fillers, answer your questions in a live chat Q&A and offer special pricing for event attendees ONLY!  We will have giveaways too.

Excited?? I am too! You’ll need to register today, so please don’t delay.

Mohs Provides Higher Cure Rate for Skin Cancer

· Skin Cancer · Comments Off on Mohs Provides Higher Cure Rate for Skin Cancer

Immediately after Mohs surgery.

I performed Mohs surgery and then did a skin graft on this patient.  She had basal cell cancer on her ear.

Mohs surgery is a precise technique to remove skin cancers layer by layer resulting in a higher cure rate than standard excision or radiation therapy.

For example, basal cell carcinomas have a 97 to 99% cure rate.

Mohs also allows me to limit the size of removal and conserve normal skin to minimize scarring.  After removal, I treat the wound in a manner to promote good healing and preserve cosmetic results.

The Mohs procedure can be as short as one hour as in the case of this patient, or it can take several hours depending on the number of layers and type of repair, like a skin graft.  This patient’s skin graft took an additional hour.

This photo was taken 11 days after her Mohs surgery and skin graft.

I became very interested in Mohs during my residency and training at the University of Miami, and then later during my dermatopathology fellowship at Roger Williams Hospital at Boston University.  A dermatopathologist diagnoses skin disorders under a microscope.

Removing a tumor and examining the tissue immediately after removal was a natural for me because of my sub-specialty as a dermatopathologist.

Designed by Frederic E. Mohs, M.D., the surgery excises not only the visible tumor but also any “roots” that may have extended beneath the surface of the skin.

This procedure is most commonly used for the treatment of basal and squamous cell carcinomas, the two most common types of skin cancer, although it can also be used to treat melanoma and other types of cancer.

Mohs surgery is often recommended for recurring cancer because its results are so thorough.

My patient 3 1/2 months after Mohs and her skin graft. Her face mask is pulling the top of her ear forward in this photo.

It is ideal for treating cancer in cosmetically and functionally prominent areas such as the nose, eyelids, lips, hairline, ears, hands and feet.

Compared to other skin cancer treatments, Mohs surgery has a very high success rate. As I mentioned, basal cell carcinomas have a 97 to 99% cure rate, while squamous cell carcinomas are cured 94% of the time.

Natural Does Not Necessarily Mean Safe

· In the News · Comments Off on Natural Does Not Necessarily Mean Safe

I’m a believer in science and clinical trials when deciding on what to recommend to patients for skincare and of course, pharmaceutical treatments.

But right now there’s a lot of money and social media influence spent on convincing you that some ingredients in skincare products are harmful.

What’s interesting is that the alternatives pushed by the clean beauty movement often result in skin irritation, infections or allergic reactions.

As you’ll see from this editorial in JAMA Dermatology, many useful and safe ingredients have been “demonized” without any scientific evidence.

Beware of marketing terms like “natural” and “clean” and look for clinical trials that demonstrate the results of the product and show the vast majority of testers did not have adverse reactions.

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 I can shape the lip to the patient’s desire:  a French lip, heart shape or geisha lip, or other options for any age group.

The best news is that this filler lasts longer!  From nine months to possibly up to a year.

Using less filler that lasts longer translates to a value for my patients.

Reveal Younger-Looking Skin!

· Lasers · Comments Off on Reveal Younger-Looking Skin!

Many of you know our friendly nurse, Franny.  She recently had a CO2 CoolPeel treatment that significantly reduced the wrinkles on her face and neck.

The CoolPeel laser helps with stubborn crows feet, lipstick lines, smile lines and pore size.  Most notably, CO2 improves wrinkles that cannot be corrected with fillers.

Franny was also one of the first to receive an Infini treatment, which does a great job of tightening skin.  Genius is the next generation of Infini.  Genius is an improved microneedling treatment with radio frequency.  It addresses sagging, crepey skin, turkey neck, jowls and large pores.  We upgraded to the Genius device last year.

If you have wrinkles along with loose, lax skin, this duo of treatments might do the trick.  Franny has had one CoolPeel and had 2 Infini treatments a couple of years ago.

When you’re in the office, feel free to ask Franny about her treatments and see her results in person!

Key sunscreen ingredient to stop brown spots, melasma

· Sunscreen · Comments Off on Key sunscreen ingredient to stop brown spots, melasma

While the FDA is currently reviewing the ingredients in chemical sunscreen, we now have even more reason to use physical sunblock instead. If melasma or brown spots are an issue for you, research has shown that you have to use an iron oxide product to the block visible light that causes this skin discoloration.

Recent studies have proven that blue light creates changes in the melanocytes in your skin to produce dark, resistant pigmentation.

The two physical blocks that will protect you are:  zinc oxide for ultraviolet light protection and iron oxide to protect from visible light.  These two ingredients are deemed to be safe and effective by the FDA.

I carry several products for your face that will protect from both visible light and ultraviolet light:

  • skinbetter Tone Smart SPF 68 sunscreen compact
  • Avène Mineral High Protection Tinted compact SPF 50
  • Dermatology Boutique BB cream

Skin drops by ISDIN will add visible light protection to your favorite broad spectrum sunscreen and by mixing the two, you can create your own BB cream.

When purchasing sunscreen at the drugstore, look for “broad spectrum.”  This means it blocks both UVB and UVA radiation.  And, as I mentioned above, if you are concerned about brown spots or melasma, look for iron oxide as an active ingredient.

Our favorite skincare products!

· Skin Care · Comments Off on Our favorite skincare products!

Here we are with our favorite skincare products.

Adriana (far left) uses Obagi foaming gel cleanser.  She says it leaves your face so clean and smooth.  No dryness after washing.  Your skin feels moisturized and soft.

Mylene (second to left) loves Skinbetter’s AlphaRet overnight face cream.  It delivers all the retinoid benefits without irritation.

I’m holding biopelle’s Tensage Intensive serum 50 which contains growth factors that repair skin damage.  I also like to use it on my patients, post treatment, to take away redness or irritation, for example, after a CoolPeel CO2 laser treatment.

Jill (far right) recommends emepelle’s serum for estrogen deficient skin.  Just one pump daily can turn the clock back on your skin, by restoring some of what menopause takes away.

The newest CO2 laser, “CoolPeel” is here!

· Lasers · Comments Off on The newest CO2 laser, “CoolPeel” is here!

So many of my patients have years of sun damage with fine lines that cannot be corrected with fillers.

I’ve just added the newest CO2 laser, “CoolPeel,” so I can help you with stubborn crows feet, lipstick lines, smile lines and pore size.

To improve texture, fine lines and pore size, nothing beats a CO2 laser. But the aggressive, ablative (removal of skin) treatment required several weeks of downtime with red, raw oozing skin.

New fractional CO2 lasers changed all that.

Our new, CoolPeel CO2 fractional laser treatment produces skin resurfacing results without the lingering heat that damages surrounding skin. Unlike regular CO2, the CoolPeel has minimal risk of hyperpigmentation, demarcation or infection caused by the procedure.

CoolPeel tightens fine lines, reduces sun damage, minimizes pores and improves skin texture with significantly less downtime than regular CO2.
