Say goodbye to facial blue veins

Published on Apr 24th, 2017 by Jeffrey Dover

Facial blue veins, frequently found around the eyes and on the forehead, are a common cosmetic concern that most individuals don’t realize can be treated. In fact SkinCare Physicians’ dermatologists can easily clear these blood vessels with little discomfort and virtually no side effects in a matter of 3 straightforward treatments. The treatments are performed with a long pulsed Nd:YAG laser which targets the blood in the vessels causing them to collapse. Over a few weeks the vessels shrivel up and disappear. Three treatments, performed every 6 to 8 weeks, are usually necessary to ensure that the vessels go away … Continue reading »

New therapies address scalp psoriasis with more success

Published on Mar 23rd, 2017 by Jeffrey Sobell

Psoriasis is a common and incurable skin disorder that is characterized by red raised scaly lesions that can occur anywhere on the body. One of the most frequent, and often distressing, locations is on the scalp.   Common symptoms include intractable itch, burning, pain and excessive shedding of flaky skin.  Historically, addressing scalp psoriasis has been very challenging, as it seems to be more treatment resistant than psoriasis affecting other areas of the body.  But fortunately, recent research has identified a number of more successful therapeutic options. A majority of patients benefit from prescription topical solutions, oils or gels, but success … Continue reading »

Frustrated with acne? Try Isolaz light therapy

Published on Feb 7th, 2017 by Meredith Kiy

Acne … there are different varieties of it, but even the smallest breakouts can affect how we view ourselves and interact with others. Many of us have been dealing with acne since we were teenagers, but I do see patients who experience sudden breakouts in their late 20’s and early 30’s. It seems that we go into a panic when we breakout: we buy the latest breakthrough product or spend hundreds of dollars on prescriptions and treatments that we hope will be the answer. The trick to it all is using the RIGHT products and treatments that work for you. … Continue reading »

ThermiRF takes skin tightening one step further

Published on Nov 17th, 2016 by Michael Kaminer

ThermiRF is a new addition to the SkinCare Physicians’ Skin Tightening Program. In a comfortable one-hour procedure, we are able to deliver therapeutic heat to the jawline and neck to create noticeable skin tightening. The jawline becomes sharper, and the area under the chin (the submental region) becomes smoother and more sculpted. How ThermiRF works? ThermiRF uses the principle of radiofrequency skin tightening to create natural results. A local anesthesia is injected under the skin, and then a thin probe is inserted through a small needle hole. The physician maneuvers the probe to areas that he or she wants to … Continue reading »
