    Age Spots 101

    Last updated 6 months ago

    Age spots are areas of discoloration that typically develop on the face, arms, shoulders, and hands. These are the areas of skin that usually suffer the most sun exposure. Individuals who frequently engage in tanning activities are more likely to develop age spots. Although they most often appear in adults who are at least 40 years old, they can sometimes affect younger adults. Age spots range in size and are flat against the skin.

    If you notice areas of discoloration on your skin, it’s a good idea to have a dermatologist examine them for signs of skin cancer. This is particularly important if the spot is growing, has an unusual color, or has an irregularly defined border. Age spots can be corrected by your dermatologist with laser treatments. Laser therapy targets the cells that produce melanin. Most people require a few treatment sessions to resolve the appearance of age spots.

    Restore your youthful appearance by scheduling a laser therapy session at Advanced Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery. If you have any questions about our dermatological services, call (866) 608-9531.

    When Should You Get a Facial?

    Last updated 6 months ago

    There are many factors that can interfere with your skin’s appearance and health, including the effects of the elements, environmental toxins, stress, and the aging process. Facials offer a solution for a variety of skincare concerns, including acne, dull skin, dry skin, and inflamed skin. To maintain the beautiful appearance of your skin, dermatologists recommend scheduling a facial every four to six weeks. In addition, you may wish to schedule this dermatology treatment during the following times.

    After a Major Accomplishment

    If you’ve been working hard in school this year to raise your GPA, consider scheduling a facial at a dermatology clinic to celebrate your grades. You may also wish to schedule a facial to celebrate your graduation. Many people reward themselves with dermatology treatments after successfully landing a new job or receiving a promotion at work. Regardless of the type of accomplishment you’ve achieved, a facial is the perfect way to celebrate.

    Before a Big Event

    Are you anticipating a wedding or another major event? Prepare yourself with a soothing visit to a dermatology clinic. A facial can help resolve any skincare concerns you might have, and it will restore your youthful appearance by exfoliating dead skin cells and hydrating your skin. Remember to schedule your facial about one to two weeks before your major event, just in case of minor skin irritation.

    During Times of Stress

    Dermatologists often see patients who suffer acne breakouts or similar skin complaints during times of stress. Stress can interfere with your glowing complexion by causing fluctuating hormone levels. Stress may also contribute to temporary neglect of your skincare routine. You can resolve these issues with a visit to the dermatology clinic for a facial. As an added bonus, facials are well-known for inducing relaxation and stress relief.

    Restore your emotional well-being and your youthful appearance with a visit to Advanced Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery! Our dermatology team can recommend a facial to suit your unique skincare concerns, in addition to any other services you may require such as chemical peels, waxing, or laser skin treatments.

    What is Pediatric Dermatology?

    Last updated 6 months ago

    Pediatric dermatology is a specialty within the dermatology field that focuses on dermatological conditions in children. Babies, children, and adolescents have unique skincare concerns; some skin conditions occur predominantly in youngsters, rather than adults. Dermatological conditions may also require different treatment for children than for adults. For example, birth marks in babies may sometimes require monitoring or treatment by a dermatologist. A dermatologist may use a laser to treat a port wine stain.

    Other conditions that commonly affect children include atopic eczema, or dermatitis. This condition is characterized by itchy, scaly, oozing skin. Babies typically exhibit these symptoms on the face and scalp, while adolescents usually notice the signs on the knees and elbows. Dermatologists also provide treatment for teen acne, and can work with teenagers to help them develop a good skincare routine.

    Advanced Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery offers specialized pediatric dermatology services at our dozens of locations. To schedule an appointment for your child or adolescent, call (866) 608-9531.
