Surprising Ways You're Aging Your Skin

Dermatologists frequently see patients who want to know what things they should and shouldn't do to maintain a youthful appearance. Watch this video to learn about some surprising ways that you may be causing your skin to age.

While exercise has been shown to make people look and feel younger, it is possible to go overboard. Overtraining can cause damage to your body without giving it time to repair, and extended cardio sessions can cause an increase of free radicals that can prematurely age your skin.

The cosmetic dermatologists at Advanced Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery offer everything from rosacea and acne treatment to vein therapy and hair transplantation. To learn about treatments that can help keep your skin looking youthful, call us today at (866) 400-3376 to schedule your visit.

The Role of Muscle Relaxers in Your Fight Against Wrinkles

Dermatology Treatments

Some of the most common complaints heard by dermatologists have to do with wrinkles, and when you consider how significantly these signs of aging can affect your appearance, it's no wonder that people want them gone. Luckily, cosmetic dermatology offers you a solution for this problem through muscle relaxers.

Products like Dysport, Xeomin, and Botox Cosmetic are used by dermatologists to rejuvenate the skin's appearance and reduce the formation of wrinkles. When injected into specific facial muscles beneath the skin, these products interrupt nerve-muscle interaction and prevent the patient from producing dramatic facial expressions. In this way, muscle relaxers can help prevent wrinkles from worsening and temporarily stop the patient from making expressions that accent these folds and lines.

Are you ready to take years off your face? If so, then call Advanced Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery today at (866) 400-3376 to schedule an appointment with one of our cosmetic dermatologists.

The Patient's Guide to Hives

Hives are a common condition treated by dermatologists, and they typically manifest as itchy, red bumps on the skin. If you suffer from hives, then continue reading to learn some important facts regarding this condition.

A Look at Hives

Hives are welts that develop on the skin that can vary greatly in size and typically feel itchy. In most cases, a single welt will form and fade in the span of 24 hours. Sometimes referred to as urticaria by clinical dermatologists, hives are categorized as being either acute, which last less than 6 weeks, and chronic, which continue for longer than 6 weeks. In most cases, hives are more of a nuisance than a danger to your health. However, if you start to experience any swelling of your lip or tongue, then see a doctor right away, as these can be symptoms of a medical emergency called angioedema.

The Causes of Hives

A hive forms on your skin when the skin cells release histamine as a result of some trigger, which is the beginning of the allergic reaction process. Many stimuli can trigger hives, and these can vary from person to person. Among the most common triggers for hives include bug bites, certain foods, food additives, medications, extreme heat or cold, viral infections, and pressure on the skin.

Treatment Options for Hives

The easiest way to prevent hives from developing is to identify and avoid your triggers. If you currently have hives on your skin, then taking an over-the-counter non-sedative antihistamine may be enough to relieve your symptoms. If medications do not help and your hives aren't subsiding, then consider seeing a clinical dermatologist. These medical professionals can treat your hives and may recommend topical lotions, prescription antihistamines, steroid treatments, or phototherapy.

If you're dealing with hives, then come and see us at Advanced Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery. Our dermatologists can provide you with treatments for hives that can help relieve your symptoms.

Understanding Rosacea

Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory condition treated by dermatologists that can begin with flushing and progress to persistent redness, pustules, papules, and cystic nodules. Watch this video to learn more about rosacea.

Rosacea can be thought of as a hybrid between eczema and acne because it can have the pimples and cysts associated with acne, along with the inflammation, skin sensitivity, and redness commonly seen in eczema. According to clinical dermatologists, stress, alcohol consumption, cold weather, dairy, spicy foods, and unprotected sun exposure can all aggravate rosacea symptoms.

If you think you may be developing rosacea, then schedule an appointment with one of the dermatologists at Advanced Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery, who can develop an individualized treatment plan to stop the disease's progression. To schedule an appointment with one of our clinical dermatologists, call us today at (866) 400-3376.

Answering Your Questions About Radiesse

Are you unhappy with the way that age is affecting your appearance? If so, then speak with your dermatologist about Radiesse. Read on to learn the answers to common questions about this popular wrinkle treatment.

What is Radiesse?

Radiesse is a dermal filler made from calcium microspheres suspended in a water-based gel that can add volume to the skin. Radiesse is injected into the skin to plump its surface, making it smoother and providing patients with a more youthful appearance. In addition to the immediate volumizing effects offered by this injectable treatment, Radiesse can stimulate the body to produce more collagen, over time, helping to promote lasting results even after the product is absorbed by the body.

Who can benefit from Radiesse?

If you have moderate to severe folds and wrinkles, then this FDA-approved treatment could be right for you. Running from the sides of the nose down to the corners of the mouth, smile lines or nasolabial folds are among the most common areas treated using Radiesse injections. The wrinkles at the sides of the mouth, pre-jowl folds, and chin wrinkles can also benefit from this product. Speak with your cosmetic dermatologist to learn if Radiesse offers you a good solution for your wrinkles.

What is Radiesse treatment like?

Being treated with Radiesse is a quick process that can be completed in under an hour. These injections are not particularly uncomfortable, but your dermatologist can mix the product with lidocaine, an anesthetic, to make the overall experience more pleasant. Radiesse can smooth your skin in a natural-looking way in just one session, meaning that you will see results immediately following your first treatment. In many patients, these results can last for as long as a year or more.

If you're ready to do something about your wrinkles, then Advanced Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery can help. We offer a number of anti-aging treatments as well as skin volumizers that can provide your skin with a more youthful appearance.
