Answering Questions About Aging Skin

As you age, you'll begin to notice major and minor changes to your skin over time. A dermatologist can provide cosmetic dermatology treatments or cosmetic surgery to reduce or eliminate some of the telltale signs of aging. Here are the answers to some common questions about aging skin.

How Can I Treat Fine Lines and Wrinkles?

There are many over-the-counter treatments available that claim to reduce or eliminate fine lines and wrinkles. In reality, the best way to treat them is to visit a cosmetic dermatologist for professional skin care treatments. Your dermatologist may recommend that you undergo laser skin resurfacing, intense pulsed light therapy, chemical peels, facials, dermal fillers, Botox injections, or skin rejuvenation therapy. These procedures are minimally invasive and produce immediate and long-lasting effects.

Why Do Age Spots Form?

One of the most common signs of aging is the development of areas of skin discoloration, also called sun spots or age spots. Age spots are brown, gray, or tan areas of skin that appear on the face, chest, shoulders, arms, and the back of the hands. This hyperpigmentation of the skin is most common among young mothers, pregnant women, and women taking hormone contraception. The primary cause of age spots is oxidative stress, which causes the body to over produce skin pigments. Excessive or prolonged sun exposure greatly increases your risk of oxidative stress and age spots.

Why Do Facial Hollows Form?

As you age, your body begins producing less collagen and elastin, which are responsible for keeping your skin plump, tight, and youthful. When you lack collagen and elastin, you will begin to develop mild to deep facial hollows. Your dermatologist can treat these facial hollows using volumizers and dermal fillers.

If you're interested in fighting the signs of aging and maintaining a youthful appearance, come see us at Advanced Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery. Our cosmetic dermatologists can offer cosmetic surgery or cosmetic dermatology treatments that will eliminate sun spots, fine lines, wrinkles, and facial hollows.

What You Need to Know About Managing Your Moles

If you have unsightly or suspicious moles on your body, you should visit a clinical dermatologist as soon as possible to determine if you need skin cancer treatment. While most moles are harmless, some may be early warning signs of melanoma. Here is a guide to managing your moles with the help of a dermatologist.

Know Your ABCDEs

You can use a simple mnemonic device to evaluate your moles. The ABCDEs of melanoma classify the key characteristics of moles that may exhibit irregularities common with cancer. If a mole is asymmetrical, has an irregular border, is more than one color, is greater than 6 mm in diameter, or evolves in color or size, it might be cancerous. You should have a clinical dermatologist evaluate it immediately.

Understand Atypical Mole Syndrome

Normal moles are small, brown spots that appear on the skin during the first few decades of life. People with atypical mole syndrome are much more likely to have both normal moles and atypical moles, and are at a much higher risk of developing melanoma. Atypical mole syndrome presents with three characteristics: 100 or more moles, one or more moles that are 8mm or larger in diameter, and one or more atypical moles. People with atypical mole syndrome and a family history of melanoma are at an even higher risk.

Visit a Clinical Dermatologist if You Have Any Doubt

If you have any doubt in your mind as to whether a mole is normal or abnormal, you should visit a clinical dermatologist. Dermatologists can provide a professional, accurate evaluation of any suspicious moles on your body. If a mole is determined to be cancerous, your dermatologist can begin skin cancer treatment immediately.

If you're in need of an experienced dermatologist for skin cancer treatment or screening, come see us at Advanced Dermatology. Our clinical dermatologists have years of experience in evaluating skin conditions, and we offer over 135 convenient locations at which you can receive a skin cancer screening.

What to Expect from Your Dermal Filler Treatment

What to Expect from Your Dermal Filler Treatment

If you've recently scheduled an appointment with a cosmetic dermatologist for dermal fillers, you might be wondering what to expect. Dermal fillers are a safe, effective method of cosmetic dermatology, and they can improve or eliminate the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and facial hollows. Keep reading to learn what you can expect from your dermal filler treatment.

Before Your Treatment

Before receiving dermal fillers, you'll need to meet with a cosmetic dermatologist or cosmetic plastic surgeon for an evaluation. He'll evaluate your complaints about your skin's appearance, and determine whether dermal fillers are the most effective cosmetic dermatology treatment for you. He will also review your medical history to find out if there are any medical reasons that you would not be a good candidate for dermal fillers.

The Dermal Filler Procedure

A dermatologist or cosmetic plastic surgeon can administer dermal filler injections in his office. Prior to your injection, he may use a local anesthetic to numb the area first so that you won't experience any pain or discomfort. He will then inject the dermal filler under the skin into the specific part of your face that you want treated. He can administer dermal fillers to more than one area in one visit. The entire procedure only takes about 15 minutes.

Results and Recovery After the Treatment

You may experience mild tenderness, swelling, and itching after receiving dermal fillers. These side effects should diminish after 36 hours. Depending upon the type of dermal filler you receive, you might start to notice results immediately, or it may take 2-3 days. The results of most dermal fillers can last anywhere between six months and a year and a half. You can get another injection once the results have worn off.

At Advanced Dermatology, our cosmetic dermatologists and cosmetic plastic surgeons are highly experienced in administering dermal fillers. We also offer a number of other cosmetic dermatology treatments, including laser treatments, facials, and scar management.

Could You Benefit from Therapeutic Shampoo?

There are many factors that can affect the appearance and health of your scalp and hair. Your diet, the minerals in your water supply, your skin and hair care products, certain medications and illnesses, and your hair-washing habits can contribute to hair that is greasy, limp, frizzy, dry, and damaged. You can also develop scalp problems, like rashes and dandruff. If you're suffering from any of these problems, a medical dermatologist can recommend a therapeutic shampoo.

Therapeutic shampoos from a dermatologist treat a number of common scalp conditions, including dandruff, itching, and skin infections. The shampoo is prescription strength, and may contain a combination of ingredients designed to target your specific condition. Therapeutic shampoo may contain zinc pyrithione, selenium sulfide, salicylic acid, sulfur, tar, ketoconazole, ciclopirox, fluocinolone, or clobetasol. Because scalp problems can also contribute to hair problems, therapeutic shampoo can also improve the texture and appearance of your hair.

If you're having scalp or hair problems, come visit one of our medical dermatologists at Advanced Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery. We offer a variety of medical-grade products for skin, hair, and nails. To learn more about our cosmetic dermatology products and medical dermatology treatments, call us today at (866) 400-3376.
