Fall is the perfect time to repair our skin after a long spring and summer of inadvertent (or purposeful 😬) sun exposure! Since one of the most common after-care instructions that accompany in-office treatments is sun avoidance, the cooler temps are a great time to schedule some of our most popular laser and corrective chemical peel treatments. If feeling more confident on the beach next summer is more your goal then now is the time to start a body sculpting treatment plan so you're ready for Spring 2020.
As Dermatologists, we know that beyond being the body’s largest organ (and critical piece of our immune systems), skin and hair are culturally something we associate with youth, beauty and good health. Nothing makes us happier then helping our patients safely define what looking and feeling their best means for them. As a practice we pride ourselves on delivering comprehensive care for everyone, including transgender patients. While the dermatologic issues for transgender patients are not unique to them, the complexities of how we treat them may differ for this patient group. We work closely with our patients’ doctors as a team for the safest and most effective results.
Last month we shared Dr. Klein’s morning and evening skincare routine, and now it’s Dr. Robinson’s turn! Below are the products she uses to start and end each day – of importance is the order she’s using everything – order of application impacts the efficacy of what you’re applying.
August is Psoriasis Awareness Month, a campaign that aims to empower patients to take control of their health, while raising awareness for the 7.5 million Americans affected by psoriatic disease. At Modern Dermatology we treat many patients suffering from Psoriasis, so we asked Dr. Robinson to tell us more about the disease and the treatment options available.
We sling a lot of skincare tips around, but do you ever wonder what is actually on our MDs bathroom counters? And perhaps more importantly, how they are applying it. The order you apply your skincare products matters and impacts the efficacy of what you’re using. We asked Dr. Klein to share her skincare routine with us from start to finish AM and PM.
While Dr. Robinson and Dr. Klein are celebrated artists when it comes to face and body contouring with lasers, needles and everything in between, when it comes to designing and decorating the office itself, they tapped the very talented Dana Ferraro of Molly Patton Design. In the months leading up to our grand opening last summer, Dana worked closely with Dr. Robinson and Dr. Klein to bring their vision of a calm, welcoming, comfortable and modern office environment to life.
It was also important to them to integrate locally sourced touches and so Dana tapped her network of local artists to source some amazing pieces. If you haven’t had a chance to visit the office yet, we hope this sneak peek gives you an idea of what our vibe is all about.
May is skin cancer awareness month, but beyond preaching about the obvious SPF protection, we wanted to take a deep – and serious – dive into the deadliest type of skin cancer, Melanoma. The reality is rates of melanoma are on the rise and have more than doubled since 1982. Right here at Modern Dermatology we diagnose and treat melanomas quite regularly, so we asked Dr. Klein to share more about what’s going on and what we can do.
While we personally believe “pale is the new tan,” we do realize that many people feel better in their bathing suits when they have a little glow, so we asked Dr. Robinson to explain the miracle that is sunless tanner. Thankfully “tan in a can” has come a long way from the first products to the market years ago, which left many early adopters looking more orange than golden!
Whether it’s an unfortunate 90’s tramp stamp, a romantic gesture gone wrong, or just plain old poor decision making, the good news is there is hope with the latest and greatest tattoo removal therapies!
With the end of “glove season” nearing in (yay!) we wanted to draw some attention to the often times unsung heroes of our bodies, the hands. Our hands are exposed to sunlight, extreme temperature and a lot of wear and tear – and so naturally they are one of the areas on our bodies that show their age first. Thankfully, at Modern Dermatology we have an assortment of therapies that can be used individually, or together, to rejuvenate your hands. We asked Dr. Klein to explain further in this Q&A.
