How to Evaluate a Physician

I recently came across some advertising for a physician offering cosmetic and anti-aging treatments.

If you are like many people you would like to reduce skin pigments and skin discoloration is a common condition. Some are due to scars, sun damage or medications.

Wrinkle Reduction

 Experience and wisdom come with age, and for that we should be truly thankful, but wouldn’t it be wonderful if we had less wrinkles to show for it! Wrinkles are part of the natural aging process. As we age our skin gets thinner, drier and less elastic. Our skin’s ability to protect itself from damage is also reduced. Eventually, wrinkles, creases, ad lines form on our skin. The first wrinkles to appear on our face occur as a result of repetitive muscle movement. Additional causes of facial wrinkles include genetics, sun damage, [...]

More Youthful Face

Achieve a More Youthful Face It’s unfortunate. As we age, our faces become thinner and long. We lose the round fuller face we had when we were young. What we lose is the fat, collagen, and even some bone, causing our face to shrink. We end up losing the volume that gave us that youthful look. Dr. Kimberly Finder advises her patients that there are many ways to approach facial rejuvenation, but one of the most important is to replace the volume that we are losing as we age. For example, take [...]

The Science of Fat Removal and Body Shaping

Your body’s shape is influenced by two different types of fat: superficial fat (the fat found in the deeper layers of our skin) and visceral fat (fat that surrounds our internal body organs). Most us think of our fat as being superficial, just under the skin surface. Visceral fat is a deeper fat. An example is a beer belly, where the fat has accumulated deep within the abdominal cavity. There is a large belly, but there is little to no fat to pinch. What is fat and where does it come from? [...]

UVA, UVB, SPF, UPF? What Does it All Mean?

 As we approach spring and begin to worry about sun exposure, I find that many people are confused by all the various abbreviations you hear around sunscreens. So let’s take a moment and understand what they mean. The A band is that part of ultraviolet that is the longest wavelength (UVA). This is the part of the ultraviolet spectrum that has the least amount of energy. It makes up for it by going deeper into the skin. It normally does not cause burns but it will make your skin look older because [...]
