    Caring for Skin with Rosacea

    Last updated 5 months ago

    Using the wrong kind of makeup can actually make rosacea worse. You should look for rosacea-specific skin care product and use mineral-based foundation to decrease your symptoms. Try to stay away from red and pink shades and instead choose bronze or peach.

    Apply makeup with brushes instead of sponges or your fingers. Be careful about what you eat because foods like wine, coffee, spinach, and pasta can all trigger flare-ups. Check out this video for more tips.

    If you have rosacea, schedule an appointment with one of Advanced Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery’s top dermatologists to get the skin care help you need. We help you find the proper way to deal with your issues to get the most attractive complexion. Visit us online or call (866) 608-9531 to learn more.

    Importance of Sun Screen in Florida

    Last updated 5 months ago

    The sun here in south Florida can be brutal.  85-90 percent of all skin cancer is sun related.  “Two different people can get the exact same amount of UVA and UVB cancer rays and one gets a skin cancer and the other does not.  That is due to a genetic predisposition of getting skin cancer”, according to Dr. Jay Gottlieb, a board-certified dermatologist at Advanced Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery.  He believes that avoiding the use of tanning beds and excessive sun exposure is the best way to lower the risk of getting skin cancer.

    A broad-specturm UVA/UVB sun block with an SPF of 30 or higher worn daily can help to reduce the incidence of skin cancer.  Look for the sun blocks that contain micronized zinc, zinc oxide or titanium dioxide.  Wear them daily, but that doesn’t eliminate the need for regular dermatology skin examinations.

    A board certified dermatologist should check your skin for anything suspicious.  Any new growth or any mole/ growth that changes in character requires close expert evaluation.  With most insurance plans, you are able to visit a dermatologist five times each year without a referral.

    Don’t forget about your children.  Protecting children now will help to prevent skin cancer later in life.  Make sure they wear a children’s sun block daily and don’t let them stay in the sun too long.  Hats and protective clothing is a must for our children in South Florida.

    How Your Skin Changes with Age

    Last updated 6 months ago

    Although many parts of the body change with age, changes in the skin are some of the most noticeable. If you can see any of the following changes, you might want to schedule an appointment with a dermatologist to find treatments to help you get younger-looking skin:

    There Are Fewer Cells Containing Pigment

    These cells, called melanocytes, decrease in number as the body ages. The cells that are left are larger than the ones in a youthful complexion, but the skin still looks thinner and paler than it once did. Eventually, skin appears almost translucent. Areas of the skin that received a lot of sun exposure might start to develop age spots or liver spots that are extremely noticeable.

    The Skin Is Not as Elastic

    The connective tissue that holds the skin together actually starts to change with age. This decreases the amount of strength and elasticity in the skin, which can lead to wrinkles or sun damage that ages the face.

    The Skin Is Dryer

    The sebaceous glands also start to slow down with age, which means they do not produce as much oil to keep the skin properly hydrated. Elderly people often seem to have dryer, itchier skin because their bodies are no longer creating enough oil to keep it moisturized and supple. The sweat glands also do not produce as much sweat, which makes it more difficult to regulate body temperature.

    The Skin Is Not as Durable

    Blood vessels in the skin lose some of their strength in later years, which makes the skin more susceptible to bruising. A lot of people also have problems with bleeding under the skin as they age.

    If you are starting to notice signs of age on your face, the skin care doctors at Advanced Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery can help. With cosmetic dermatology services that include laser skin treatments, we can help you get a more youthful complexion. Call (866) 608-9531 today to schedule an appointment or to find the location nearest you.
