Confidence and a Clear Complexion

Confidence and a Clear Complexion

Summertime. We plan for it all year, and then in the blink of an eye, a new school year is upon us. For some adolescents and young adults, the beginning of a new school year can come with the added stress of unwanted, stubborn acne. 

Living with Acne

The frustration of trying countless over the counter remedies can be overwhelming. 

Oftentimes, patients have been battling their acne for years and the expense of trying and failing various over the counter options far outweighs a visit to the dermatologist. 

Unfortunately, there are no overnight cures for acne. With so many prescription treatments available, it helps to have the expertise of a provider that can choose which one is right for you.

Which Treatments Will Work for You?

The regimen your provider chooses will be unique to your specific skincare needs, and there are as many possible ways to combine products as there are people who need them. 

Each ingredient used to commonly treat acne uses a different pathway to provide and maintain clear, beautiful skin.

“Itchy rash”, “dry skin”, “scaly patches”; these are some of the most common complaints presented to dermatologists on a daily basis. And although all of these descriptions can cover several diagnoses, the most well-known are eczema and psoriasis.

Treating Psoriasis with Biologics

When psoriasis covers a large body surface area, is very severe, or has reached the point of psoriatic arthritis, topical treatments alone are not enough to effectively treat the disease. Biologics may be the answer.

Show Off Your ”Sun Smarts”

Our skin is our body’s largest organ. It provides a barrier to protect us against infection, injury, sunlight, and heat. UV rays can damage your skin in as little as 15 minutes. Over time, cumulative sun exposure can lead to long term health problems.

Sun Shields

Summertime is upon us. Temperatures are up, school’s out, and so is your skin! Whether you’re packing for a much needed vacay, firing up the grill, or gearing up for the season’s first beach day, take a moment to cover your bases...and your skin.

Producing a Proud Pout

Over time, our skin loses overall elasticity and the epidermis (the top layer of the skin) becomes more fragile. Unfortunately, the lips are no exception.
