Prejuvenation: A six-step guide to maintaining your aesthetic edge against aging

Published on Jul 30th, 2018 by Mona Sadeghpour, Kenneth Arndt

Every day we are asked if there is an age that is “too early” to start preventing the skin from aging or to start on the journey for skin rejuvenation.  We have been thinking about this question for years and in fact were the first to introduce and coin the term “prejuvenation,” a buzz word that has since taken off on a journey of its own.  Just Google-search the word and you’ll see what we mean! What exactly is “prejuvenation?” “Prejuvenation” is the act of initiating a series of thoughtfully planned steps that will prevent or impede the changes associated … Continue reading »

SkinCare Physicians – Not an ordinary dermatology practice

Published on Jul 16th, 2018 by Thomas Rohrer

SkinCare Physicians is not your ordinary dermatology practice.  It is one of the leading academic dermatology institutions in the country.  Our physicians actually produce more publications than the majority of the university based dermatology programs around the country.  Over the past four years alone, our board-certified dermatologists have published well over 100 manuscripts, 40 textbook chapters, and given more than 270 lectures around the country and internationally.  They have also been the editors of 10 textbooks and serve as associate editors to several of the most prestigious journals in dermatology and dermatologic surgery.  Furthermore, SkinCare Physicians’ research department runs 10 … Continue reading »

PRP – An exciting new approach to the treatment of hair loss

Published on Jun 13th, 2018 by Jeffrey Dover

Treating hair loss has been a challenge for decades. The condition is even more devastating for women who routinely asked about treating their hair thinning conditions. There is a real lack of effective therapies for men and women with pattern hair loss. Topical Rogaine (minoxidil) is only of limited help, and while taking oral Propecia (finasteride) helps to regrow hair in men it is ineffective in women. Hair transplantation is effective, but can be an expensive, surgical grafting procedure. Fortunately, the board-certified dermatologists at SkinCare Physicians have a new technique called PRP (platelet rich plasma), which is changing the way … Continue reading »

Your guide to seborrheic keratoses and new Eskata topical treatment

Published on May 10th, 2018 by Jeffrey Sobell

Seborrheic keratoses (SK) are very common skin growths.  They may seem worrisome as they can look like a wart or a skin cancer, but they are completely harmless and can easily be removed by our dermatologists near Boston. SK’s tend to develop in middle age or older and increase in number over time.  They can be seen almost anywhere on the skin, but favor the chest, back, head and neck. SK’s typically start as small rough bumps, and slowly thicken to take on a warty surface.  Classically, they have a waxy “stuck-on-the-skin” appearance.  The color can range from white to … Continue reading »

SkinCare Physicians weighs in on “filler fatigue”

Published on May 3rd, 2018 by Michael Kaminer

Let me say this plainly and succinctly…“filler fatigue” due to repeated hyaluronic acid based injections is a hoax. There is absolutely no truth to the notion that long term use of fillers causes problems with skin laxity or integrity. Cosmetic dermatologists now have nearly two decades of data on the safety and efficacy of fillers used in the United States and around the world. At SkinCare Physicians in Chestnut Hill, MA (just outside of Boston), we pride ourselves on treating patients safely with hyaluronic acid based fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm, and Belotero, and importantly these treatments have been highly … Continue reading »
