    The skin around your eyes is the most sensitive and can easily react to things like salt intake, crying and lack of sleep.

     My favorite trick to help with puffy eyes is to keep my eye cream in the refrigerator. Then when I apply it (usually morning and night) it gives me a nice cooling sensation around my eyes along with hydration from my eye cream.    

    Also, drink lots of water or tea, it can help decrease that eye puffiness through diuresis

    Lastly, If you are really puffy you can apply some preparation H cream to the under eyes to provide temporary relief of puffiness.

         We all dress for the weather. But to really protect yourself from the weather, most forget about one thing: your skin.

         All area’s climate can affect the skin all over your body. It can cause acne breakouts to itchy dry patches. Extremes in weather, both hot and cold, can exacerbate some existing skin conditions or even cause new ones.

         No matter the weather, skin should always be a main concern. Exposure to sunlight is one of the major causes of wrinkles and premature aging, as well as, skin cancer.

         Protect your skin. Wear sunscreen each and every day!

Article about Lytera 2.0 in the Marie Claire magazine

    Lytera is a skin brightening agent that is a part of the Skin Medica Family of skin care products. It can help with brown spots and discoloration of the skin. It has been newly formulated without retinal but it just as patent to reduce hyperpigmentation. Lytera 2.0 now contains a blend of antioxidants, peptides and plant acids. In a study, compared to hydroquinone (a skin bleaching agent) the new Lytera 2.0 demonstrated results comparable to hydroquinone in reducing pigmentation. Any skin type and tone can use Lytera because there is no retinal, no hydroquinone, no parabens, and is fragrance free. Also, it is great to add to any current regimen or treatment to help boost results.

    This month the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) Journal was devoted to the treatment of scars. The journal covered many high tech treatments like laser but what surprised me most was the excellent improvement noted by many patients with over the counter silicone products.

    It seems a silicone covering traps moisture and provides occlusion which helps prevent new scars but is also effective on older thick scars. The silicone comes in many forms; sheets, gel liquids and ointments with names such as “scar guard” or similar. Products are readily available at CVS, Rite-aid and Amazon. 

    Silicone must be used for several months to achieve optional improvement.

    Thick scars and small Keloids that don’t respond completely to silicone can be treated at our office with intralesional corticosteroid injections, microneedling or pulse dye laser (Vbeam).

    I would suggest that patients try a silicone product for three months and if further improvement is desired schedule a consultation with our office.
