It sounds scary, but I can tell you from personal experience, it’s not!

Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation treatment we offer in our office. It has little to no downtime after it too! It’s a minimally invasive treatment that uses small surgical needles that oscillate very quickly to create small micro cuts in the skin. By creating these small cuts a healing cascade is stimulated which includes the production of collagen. Collagen is what gives our skin its strength, elasticity and ability to bounce back. Microneedling can be used as a treatment for brown spots, wrinkles, redness and stretch marks to name a few.

The treat itself is mildly uncomfortable but is very quick and tolerable. After the treatment you may be pink or red for 48 hours but the redness from my treatment lasted only about 8 hours. 

As always, it’s very important to apply sunscreen after your treatment and every morning!

    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.

    The Skin is the first thing people notice. There are many office treatments to help smooth your skin. As your dermatology providers we can inject the Botox and Juvederm and then, peel, laser or microneedle your skin but, to maintain your glow you need to adhere to a great home skin care regimen as well.
     Just as with physical fitness one must exercise and eat right otherwise you relapse to your former self.
     Our skin is constantly renewing itself and a home skin care regimen that includes good sunscreen, antioxidants and growth factors enhances the glow that keeps skin looking great. Skin health like physical fitness excels when we give it our full attention. Office treatments will definitely make your skin look good but to look great you need to maintain that glow with a great skin care at home.
    We are here to give you the best advice and to empower you to take control over the aging process.
    What you can do for yourself at home is so important! Let us help you c!hoose the products
