Too Much Summer Sun!

“I kind of overdid it this summer.”  “I didn’t mean to get such a bad sunburn.”  “But I was wearing sunscreen!”  “It was cloudy!”  I hear these comments from my patients frequently, and they often want to know what they can do to minimize sun damage after a little too much fun-in-the-sun.  In these last few days of summer, we are often tempted to cram in a little extra R&R, a little more sunshine, before the back-to-school season signals the … Continue Reading

NEW Laser Resurfacing of Stretch Marks

Stretch marks are clinically called striae distensae.  Until recently, very little could be done for stretch marks.  Historically, the only reliable way to eliminate stretch marks was to surgically remove them (for example, with a tummy tuck), which left scars of its own.  Then, in 1996, Dr.McDaniel reported that a pulsed-dye laser (PDL) could successfully treat stretch marks1.  The PDL became the gold standard treatment, but time marches on and science continues to advance. In May of 2011, medical researchers … Continue Reading

Anti-Aging: Inside & Outside

The quest for maintaining or restoring health and beauty impacts each of us in different ways.  If you are sitting in a doctor’s office as you read this article, then you are likely involved in some aspect of this quest.  Much of American (and western) medicine is focused on treating disease and hopefully restoring health, sadly with much less emphasis on maintaining wellness and health. Ideally, each of us would have as one of our life’s goals to pursue not … Continue Reading

LaVív™

LaVív™ by Fibrocell® is a very innovative new anti-aging therapy which uses your body’s own skin cells to rejuvenate your skin.  The Fibrocell process takes a small sample of your skin from behind one ear and then isolates the cells that produce collagen, elastic fibers and hyaluronic acid (which you might know better as the active ingredient in popular fillers such as Juvéderm or Restylane) and then multiplies these cells (called “fibroblast cells”) creating tens of millions of new  cells.   … Continue Reading

Apples, Pears, White Fruits & Vegetables Reduce Stroke Risk

Remember the saying:  “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”?   Well, there is more truth in that as we learn more about genomics and how fruit-derived antioxidants and other beneficial compounds from food or Nature may keep us healthier.  There have been a number of research studies in recent years demonstrating benefits of apples and there are now apple derived plant stem cells appearing in some anti-aging creams.  In fact, the Phloretin CF® antioxidant lotion from SkinCeuticals which we … Continue Reading

5 Continents Congress

Greetings from the 5 Continent Congress on cosmetic and laser surgery.  This meeting was held in Cannes this year, where I had the pleasure of seeing a lot of old friends as well as many new luminary cosmetic surgeons.  Exchanging the European viewpoint on cosmetics with American ideas is a great way for us to all benefit.  I have some new ideas and tips and can’t wait to share them with our staff and our patients.  Since Europe is “ahead” … Continue Reading

Tanning Bed Safety

Now that fall is here and suntans are fading, many people resort to tanning beds to maintain that golden glow of summer.  So, just a friendly reminder that the golden glow turns into wrinkles, unsightly age spots, and sometimes skin cancer! Estimates are that 10 minutes in a tanning bed (for fairer skin) have about the same cancer-causing effects as 10 minutes in the midsummer Mediterranean sun (and I might add without enjoying the beautiful scenery and water). Studies show … Continue Reading

Sunscreens & FDA news

Recently, the FDA issued long-awaited new sunscreen labeling rules. For the first time, the label terms which had no official or scientific basis (such as “waterproof” or “sweatproof” or “sunblock”) will be replaced by meaningful terms supported by valid testing and clear rules.  The rules take effect in June 2012. What does this mean to you? Well, beginning in June, if you see the words “Broad Spectrum”, you can be confident that you have both UVB (burning ray) and UVA (aging ray) protection–which … Continue Reading
