Melasma Treatments

Melasma is a skin disorder that causes discoloration on the skin. More often than not, Melasma appears on the face in the form of dark patches, making your skin tone uneven. Although the symptoms of this disorder are superficial, you may have a genetic predisposition to Melasma; as it has been recorded to be more prominent in people with tan skin tones than in those with light or dark skin tones. Other components that increase your risk of developing Melasma include sun exposure; hormonal changes experienced during pregnancy or through the use of oral contraceptives and strong skin care products. Treating Melasma generally begins with protecting your skin...

Melasma

What causes it? If you’re noticing light to dark brown or gray patches on your skin, you may have Melasma. Melasma is a common skin disorder that affects 1 in 4 women globally and 1 in 20 men. It is typically seen on people with a natural brown skin tone but has affected those with lighter, fair skin and darker, black skin. In simple terms, the condition is a form of hyperpigmentation that causes the skin to produce more melanin (the formulation of pigment – skin color) in certain areas of your body, primarily the face. For most people, these patches become embarrassingly noticeable and can lead to...

The Sun is the Primary Cause of Aging

  The battle against aging is a concept as ancient as the extinction of dinosaurs. At some point, we all come to terms with the fact that we will grow old but we will do so gracefully. There are preventative measures we can take to ensure that our skin continues to appear youthful and the most significant of all is protecting ourselves from the sun. As the summer comes to end and we begin to prepare for winter, our skin is most likely recovering from all the sunny days we spent outdoors. The sun damage our skin experiences can be as lasting as all the memories you made throughout...

Don’t Just Fight Wrinkles, Tighten Your Skin

Although wrinkles can be a telltale sign of aging, it’s not the only sign. The number one indicator that your skin is aging is loosening. As we get older, the amount of oil that our skin produces begins to decrease, resulting in drier and looser skin. Although it’s simply a fact of life, loose skin still makes us look—and, as a result, feel—much older. This is the point when we run to the store, pulling any product off the shelf that has remotely anything to do with “anti-aging.” However, many anti-aging creams tend to only fight wrinkles. This helps in one way—it smooths out your wrinkles, but it doesn’t...

What Sunscreen Works Best For Your Skin Type?

It’s important to apply sunscreen every time that you go out in order to prevent short-term (sunburn) or long-term (sun spots or skin cancer) skin damage. But many people tend to shy away from sunscreen because they think that it is full of chemicals, is too oily, or makes them break out. Some of these can happen if you’re using the wrong sunscreen, so keep reading to find out what sunscreen works best for your skin type. Oily Skin If you have naturally oily skin, the last thing that you want to do is apply something with an oily consistency to your face. However, sunscreens do come in mineral...

6 Ways to Protect Your Skin Against Sun Damage

Although the sun causes short-term skin damage through painful sunburn, there are many much worse long term effects that we can always see, such as susceptibility to wrinkles, sunspots, and even skin cancer. It’s important that you are aware of how to protect your skin against potential sun damage. 1. Keep up with sunscreen application. Always apply a thick coat of 15 SPF sunscreen or higher. Layers that are too thin aren’t even half as effective as a thick layer, so don’t skimp. Apply at least 20-30 minutes before you’re in the sun and be sure to reapply every two hours. 2. Wear a hat. Hats or dark clothing...

More about Radiofrequency in Cosmetic Dermatology

With the recent emergence of the novel nonablative lasers and radiofrequency skin technology, many studies have been done in order to test the effectiveness and safety of these treatments against our skin. You’ve already read about the nonablative radiofrequency (RF) treatment, but there’s another new procedure that combines RF with a laser device. This new treatment is designed to specifically target skin laxity and wrinkles. The RF and laser device was tested on a group of 20 patients with varying skin types, although all reported mild to moderate skin laxity and facial wrinkles. Each patient received three treatments at three-week intervals using the system in an attempt...

Radiofrequency in Cosmetic Dermatology

Many of us have gotten photodamage—deterioration from sun exposure of the skin, such as wrinkles, roughness, and discoloration—from spending too much time outdoors. Despite the health benefits that spending time outside has for us, our skin can certainly get the short end of the stick. Fortunately, due to modern technology, there are many ways to fight back. In fact, dermatologic technology has recently come up with novel solutions that can help reverse sun damage to your skin. Radiofrequency (or RF) is a new nonablative—meaning that it is noninvasive and it leaves the surface of the skin intact—treatment that dermatologists use in order to target photodamage directly. Not only...

Oils Work Perfectly with your Skin Type

I bet you never knew the incredible effects that using oil on your skin could have. Most of these oils work well on all skin types, but for the best effects, be sure to look for the ones that help your skin type the most. Jojoba Oil Treats: Aging Skin Jojoba (pronounced ho-ho-ba) oil is not technically an oil—it’s actually a liquid wax ester that is similar to sebum, one of our own natural skin oils. Since it is so close to something our skin produces naturally, it has incredible effects on our skin. It balances out oil production, allowing this to be a safe oil for those with oily...
