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.
If you’ve been to Modern Dermatology, you’ve likely encountered the smiling face of Tara Roseme. Tara can be found at check-in, check-out, or in our retail area helping patients choose the right skincare products for their needs. Tara recently experienced fantastic results from Dr. Klein’s treatment with PicoSure SmartSkin+, a revolutionary CO2 laser here at Modern Dermatology. We asked Tara to share her experience, and results, and here is what she had to say…
It would be nice if there were a true “fountain of youth,” a perfect cosmetic procedure, a magic cream, or potion drink to maintain skin youth and beauty. Although that one "silver bullet" does not exist today, recent research demonstrates that Nutrition, Topical Skin Care, and Aesthetic Procedures together exert a synergistic, effective remedy. By implementing all three of these skincare categories, optimal skin health and skin beauty are achieved from the outside, as well as from the inside.
Holiday parties are the perfect reason to try something new when it comes to your typical makeup look. We asked our Cosmetologist, Jetmira “Jet” Emini to share some of her tried and true tips for long-lasting, flawless makeup. Jet has 8+ years of experience, specializing in makeup application for weddings, proms, showers, engagement photos and TV, where she works with the WWE and A&E Productions. At Modern Dermatology Jet provides personalized makeup application and how-to tutorials, as well as customized facials and HydraFacials.
Most of our patients have no downtime and no bruising following their injectable cosmetic treatments like Botox and Filler, however, when bruising does occur it can be a real bummer. Of course, we do everything we can to avoid bruising a patient, but the reality is it happens to the best of us because at the end of the day, the face is one of the most vascular areas of our bodies. Enter AccuVein, a new, cutting-edge technology that allows us to see below the complex network of tiny veins and blood vessels beneath the skin, so we can avoid them. Modern Dermatology is pleased to offer this groundbreaking technology to our patients, and to further explain how it works, we asked Dr. Klein to answer some common questions.
