SkinCare Physicians' Dr. Kenneth Arndt was quoted in a recent Harvard Health Letter article entitled Do-it-yourself skin cancer checks. "About 50% of melanomas are identified by patients, and even more are discovered if the skin is examined with the help of a partner," shared Dr. Arndt. His advice is to simply ask your partner to "take 10 minutes a month to look for skin lesions that you haven't noted before or those that have changed in color, size or shape, and feel." He further suggested to "pay particular attention to spots that have grown and may display a variety of hues, such as tan, black, brown, pearly, or translucent; moles or pigmented spots that have changed in color, mass or contour; or sores that continually crust, bleed and itch."

Dr. Dover recently shared his view with the American Academy of Dermatology Association on how we, at SkinCare Physicians, are educating our medical dermatology patients about the breadth of cosmetic and anti-aging treatments we offer. We strive to educate our patients with tact and sensitivity. We display treatment brochures in every exam room as well as photo albums of patients before and after cosmetic procedures. When Dr. Dover sees that a patient has looked at them, he asks if he/she has any questions about cosmetic treatments and will eventually start the conversation about anti-aging procedures. He remarks that women “are much more attuned to their appearance, so the pickup is going to much higher with women than men. But, there is a whole new group of men who care very much about their appearance, and they’re very interested.” Finally, Dr. Dover stresses that timing is critical when starting the cosmetic conversation: “If the patient is in the office for a significant medical problem — for example, they think they have a melanoma, or a family member was diagnosed with melanoma — you just don’t bring it up, period. You wait for the next visit, or you just don’t do it.” Read the full article for more advice. http://www.aad.org/dermatology-world/monthly-archives/2012/december/the-cosmetic-conversation

Would you have ever thought that fat could be removed without surgery? Science fiction, right? Well not anymore! We are pleased to introduce CoolSculpting (by Zeltiq) and Liposonix to our patients, the first completely non-invasive techniques that remove fat. SkinCare Physicians was one of a handful of centers in the world that was hand-picked to offer the first CoolSculpting and Liposonix treatments. While there have been other companies and devices that have claimed to reduce fat without surgery, CoolSculpting and Liposonix are the first and only ones that actually do remove the fat, safely and permanently. Several of our physicians have been involved with the research and development of CoolSculpting and Liposonix from the beginning, and we have proven scientific evidence that these techniques really do work. The procedures are comfortable and take 1 to 3 hours. There is no need for anesthesia, while on occasion Liposonix patients receive injection of a mild pain medication (patients can still drive themselves home after either procedure) .During the procedure most patients read a book, listen to music, or watch television or a DVD. The most common areas we treat are the upper and lower abdomen, love handles, hips, mid-back and bra line. With some of our newer techniques, we are able to treat the arms, as well as both the inner and outer thighs.

Dr. Emmy Graber received a glowing review on the internet. Here is what one of her patients said: "I go to Dr. Emmy Graber for my acne and I can't say enough amazing things about her. First of all, she is unbelievably nice and immediately put me at ease, which is difficult because I didn't have any make-up on and felt incredibly exposed with my acne uncovered. She is a young doctor, but you can immediately tell that she is quite intelligent when it comes to her practice. Having suffered from humiliating acne since I was 11, I was shocked to finally find a dermatologist that listens to me! She looked at my skin and discovered something that no one else had - it was hormonal acne! Therefore, all of the painful and expensive treatments that I was using previously (including Accutane, antibiotics, Retin A, and everything else out there) would have no effect on my acne. She prescribed Spironolactone and within 3 months, my skin was amazing. Going to see her was undoubtedly the best decision I've made in many years. It's now beach season and it feels so good to be able to go outside without caking on make-up (but I always wear my SPF!). I can't thank her enough; I feel more confident about my appearance than I ever have before!"
