Selecting Lasers (Part 2)

  Given my previous write-up on lasers for hair removal, I wanted to continue with the discussion on treatment alternatives. This time, I wanted to expand to skin care. Because when it comes to skin rejuvenation there are many competing alternatives from peels, to radiofrequency, microneedling, lasers and more; it’s too much information to summarize in this blog today. My intention is to introduce the topic in order to expand on each modality in particular in a later section. Ultimately, the goal is to have an idea of each one and its distinct use. Regarding lasers, we first need to understand how these work: basically they operate on the...

LET’S TALK EXCESS HAIR…

Aside from paying your taxes and the fact that we are on this earth temporarily, another solid truth is that many of us don’t like excess hair. In fact, laser hair removal has been proven to be one of the most psychologically rewarding cosmetic procedures due to its impact on how we feel about ourselves. When we were babies, we had terribly cute Vellus Hair, which is simply the baby fine colorless hair that covers our body. But then comes puberty and hormonal changes in our body and as a result, some of this vellus hair is stimulated by androgens (hormones) to become darker, curlier, and coarser....

Vitamin A Based Cosmeceuticals- Why?

Every day when I wake up, I organize my to do list and write down my priorities and activities for the day and beyond.

In other words, I began putting quality products on my skin, eating the right ingredients, exercising, and so on to produce beautiful healthy skin throughout my life. Of all the ingredients that my skin factory needs, Vitamin A is the magical secret needed to improve it...

Nutraceuticals: Are They For Real?

I happen to believe in supplements. While there has been controversial evidence as to their effectiveness, I have felt better when I take supplements, especially when I’m too busy to focus on eating healthy, or when I crave that piece of cake. Given the importance of nutrition in our body, and in our case the skin, I found the topic interesting. After all, “there are several legs in a stool” and many wellness and skincare weapons in our arsenal. After doing some research, I particularly enjoyed reading Dr. Steve Chaneys’ conclusions from a couple of his studies. The first concerns personalized nutrition and the second, is the role...

What Does It Take To Make A Comprehensive Skin Evaluation?

“I can’t stand these spots!” said my client, Sue, who was very upset about the way her skin looked. And she was right…she was full of unwanted facial hairs, acne, pigmentation irregularities, and concomitant scars. She had never suffered from severe acne as a teenager and her looks were causing her anxiety Upon meeting with her, we immediately started completing forms and a questionnaire. We started by looking at her nutritional habits. Particularly, we asked her how many takeout meals a week she had, at what time was her main meal, how late was her last meal, what were the main groups included in her diet, was she...

A Skin Consultation: Why or Why not?

Many of us when we go to a spa or center for preventive and maintenance skin treatments, do not go through a thorough skin evaluation. Those types of consultations are regularly done in the medical world when we go for an examination to treat or prevent disease, but not so much in the aesthetics world. However, comprehensive consultations can help us obtain information on a client’s history, lifestyle, preferences, and more. With this information in hand along with before & after pictures, roadmaps composed of both treatments at the office, and cosmeceuticals at home, can be designed to serve as a guide and to decide on a...
