Easy Skin Care Tips

First, make sure to protect your skin from skin cancer and wrinkles by using a daily sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. Next, always hydrate your skin. Using a moisturizer twice each day—in the morning and evening—will help your skin look younger and even out your complexion. Third, exfoliate your skin to remove dead cells and dry skin.

All about Laser Hair Removal

More and more American men and women have begun to visit their dermatologists to ask about removing unwanted hair—for good. Laser hair removal is a safe and relatively painless procedure that can put an end to the shaving, waxing, and tweezing that can leave your skin irritated and dry. Whether you want to avoid painful ingrown hairs or are simply tired of removing hair on your own just to watch it grow back, here are the basics you need to know about laser hair removal.

How to Prepare

It is important to remember that laser hair removal is more than just a simple cosmetic fix; it is a medical procedure that eliminates the hair and its roots. Before you undergo laser hair removal, be sure to schedule a consultation with your dermatologist to make sure you are a good candidate for the procedure and that your dermatologist has experience in the field.

What to Expect

During your treatment, your hair follicles will be pulsed by tiny lasers that target each area for a fraction of a second. The short treatment time makes it possible to treat small areas like the upper lip in under a minute. In addition, laser hair removal is precise. The procedure selectively targets dark, coarse hairs and leaves the surrounding skin completely untouched and undamaged.

When to Go

Laser hair removal generally requires several treatments, and each client is unique. Each visit to your dermatologist should take less than an hour. Many men and women schedule laser hair removal over their lunch breaks or even before or after work.

Who to Visit

Most cosmetic dermatologists and many medical spas perform laser hair removal. However, the benefit to visiting an experienced skin doctor is that a dermatologist always has both your health and your cosmetic appearance in mind. In addition, dermatologists are often more experienced in this technical procedure, making sure you get the best results from your treatment.

The ABCDEs of Melanoma

Melanoma is the most dangerous form of skin cancer. The tumors grow in the melanocytes found in the deepest layer of your skin. If the signs of melanoma are recognized early, it is often treatable. Continue reading to learn about the early warning signs of melanoma, and contact your dermatologist immediately if you think that you notice any of the following signs.

Asymmetry

If you notice an irregular mole on your skin, draw an imaginary line through the center of the mole. If the two

sides match, then the mole is symmetrical. If the two sides are different, the mole is asymmetrical, which can be a symptom of melanoma. You should visit your dermatologist if you have an asymmetrical mole.

Border

Benign moles generally have smooth, even borders. Moles that are possibly cancerous can have irregular and uneven borders. Check your skin for moles and other irregularities that have edges which look wavy or notched.

Color

A non-cancerous mole is typically an even, uniform shade of brown or tan. If you notice a mole on your skin that is multiple colors, visit your dermatologist. Melanomas may be more than one shade of brown, black, or tan. This type of skin cancer can even be red, white, or blue.

Diameter

A mole that is benign is typically small in size and diameter. You can use a ruler or measuring tape to evaluate the size of any moles on your skin. Melanomas are often larger than ¼ inch in diameter, which is about the size of a pencil eraser.

Evolving

Monitor moles on your skin to see if they change in size, color, or appearance. A mole that begins to evolve is a sign of concern. If you notice a mole changing shape, size, or color, contact your dermatologist right away.
