Control of Facial Pigmentation - Part 1 - Jan 26, 2008 - 11:22:54 AM

Skinsumimg-11.jpg
Clear, even-toned skin is the envy of all- if you are fortunate to have it you may have received compliments about your fabulous complexion.   However, since you are reading this page, you probably do have skin tone unevenness or darkened patches.   Well, there is no reason to worry; there are treatments to help resolve these problems.

 

Treatment of pigmentation abnormalities involves the use of topical creams to eradicate darkened areas of the skin which may result form hormones, sun damage, injuries, skin-type characteristics, medications and more.   Hyperpigmentation can be anything from melasma /cholasma often attributed to pregnancy or hormonal imbalances to freckles.

 

The treatments vary from melanin blocking agents combined with topical medications such as Retin A which causes the body to exfoliate the skin to rid the body of the hyperpigmentation while prohibiting new melanin production to laser treatments...

Healthier Skin with the Obagi Skin Care Program - Dec 30, 2007 - 10:33:34 AM

obagi_header2.jpg
Beautiful skin is healthy skin. It is firm and smooth, with even skin tone and glowing color. It is free from medical problems and it is normal in function and tolerance. We are born with healthy skin, but time, the sun, and environmental assaults eventually take their toll on our skin.  The skin is a remarkable, living organ with the incredible ability to renew itself from the inside out. All it needs is the right kind of treatment to help it remember how. That’s the treatment you’ll find with the Obagi Nuderm Skin Care Program.

 

As you age and your skin incurs the abuse of daily living (such as sun, stress, pollution), the cell turnover rate slows down. This means that the new cells take longer to form and reach the top. The old cells accumulate and stay on the surface longer...

Beautiful Skin with No Laser - Dec 2, 2007 - 9:46:08 AM
beautifulSkin.jpg
Despite the appearance of several new types of lasers each year, plastic and cosmetic surgeons report doing over one million chemical peels in 2004. Chemical peels, which have been a popular skin rejuvenation procedure form more than 50years helps rejuvenate facial skin and is favored by many, patients who may not wish to undergo more invasive procedures such as laser resurfacing.
 

Well Worth It:
Skin peeling techniques work because old, damaged skin is taken off in one of three ways. The outer layer of skin can be ground off by dermabrasion, dissolved by acid or vaporized with a laser. However, lasers and chemical peels remove the old skin in vastly different ways. A laser vaporizes skin fluid, leaving behind dead cells and other debris which must be immediately cleaned away to prevent infection...

Healthy Skin goes Within - Apr 22, 2007 - 1:33:09 PM

healthyskinMINI.JPG
Below the skin’s surface are cells that give the skin its smoothness, even colour, and firmness.   As these cells mature, new cells are made.   For healthy skin, this cycle of cell replacement takes about six weeks.   However, just as the health of other body parts begin to diminish with age, so does the health of the skin...

plascticsurgeryMINI.JPG

Pain Management & Cosmetic Surgery - Mar 13, 2007 - 12:19:42 PM

  Ask any surgeon what single question patients most often ask prior to undergoing a surgical procedure, and chances are it’s “How much will it hurt?”   Many aesthetic (cosmetic) surgical procedures cause little or no postoperative pain; but a few can produce short-term acute discomfort.   Doctors want every surgery to be as painless as possible, and pain management is now recognized as a vital part of the surgical experience.

facial_2.JPG
Although the outward effects may be similar or even identical, the terms cosmetic and reconstructive surgery are not interchangeable.   The plastic surgeon performs cosmetic surgery to reshape normal structures of the face or body in order to improve the patient’s appearance and self-esteem.   Reconstructive surgery is performed to correct abnormalities of facial or body structures caused by congenital defects, developmental abnormalities, injuries, previous or concurrent surgeries, infection, tumors or other disease.   The purpose of reconstructive surgery is generally to improve function, but it may also be used to restore a normal appearance.

kensm.jpg
Plastic surgeons are excited to be in the forefront of the evolving field of age management.  As physicians and researchers, we know that there is no miracle ‘cure’ for aging.  But current research on genetics, stem cell therapies and lifestyle modifications hold promise for increasing the quality, if not the length of our lives.
