Rozatrol Booster

Adding a booster to a HydraFacial offers a variety of benefits for the skin. And with October being Eczema Awareness Month, we wanted to highlight one booster in particular, the ZO Skin Health Rozatrol.

This booster is great for eczema because it was specifically developed with the skin condition in mind. Offering a combination of redness relieving ingredients, it’s perfect for minimizing the appearance of skin redness and dryness. In doing that, the overall appearance of the skin is improved with a smoother texture and more even tone.

Overall, the ZO Skin Health Rozatrol is a phenomenal option for eczema that provides patients instant relief and cumulative benefits as they continue with the treatment.

September is Healthy Aging Month, which is a great opportunity to focus on the overall well-being of your skin. Did you know that as we age, aside from those annoying fine lines and wrinkles that pop up, the risk for skin cancer also increases? The Skin Cancer Foundation estimates that by the age of 70, roughly 1 in 5 Americans will develop some form of skin cancer. Older Woman Gardening

That’s why it’s so important to stay on top of the health of your skin. Here are some ways to do just that:

  • Avoid the sun between 10am and 4pm. This is when the sun peaks in the sky and UV rays are at their strongest.
  • Wear sunscreen daily. Even on cloudy, winter days, harmful UV rays are still prevalent. We recommend our patients wear a broad-spectrum SPF of at least 30, reapplying every two hours.
  • If outside for extended periods, wear a hat with a wide brim. This will not only provide shade for your face but also increased protection from sun exposure.
  • Regular skin examinations. We recommend our patients get their skin checked for any cancerous lesions at least once a year. Patients with a history of skin cancer are advised to be seen more frequently.
  • Avoid tanning. This one cannot be emphasized enough. Aside from increasing the risk of skin cancer, it can also contribute to speeding up the aging process.

These tips will not only help to keep your skin looking its best, but also decrease your risk of skin cancer. If you would like to schedule an appointment, call us at 716-688-0020 or click here.

What is a HydraFacial?

The HydraFacial is a medical-grade treatment that deeply cleanses, extracts, and hydrates the skin.

How can the HydraFacial help with acne & blemishes?

During the process, pores are cleansed and debris is removed from the skin. This allows for better penetration of skincare products, which in turn, provides a highly effective treatment for acne and blemishes.

Who is a candidate for the HydraFacial?

The HydraFacial is suitable for patients of all ages (12 and up) and for any skin type.

Does it hurt?

No. The HydraFacial is a gentle, non-invasive treatment.

When are results seen?

Results are seen immediately after treatment. Most patients describe their skin after treatment as having a fresh, vibrant glow.

To learn more about the HydraFacial and how it can help your skin, contact our office today.

If you are looking to improve the appearance of your skin, then dermaplaning may be for you. As a non-invasive treatment for the face, it is a great option for patients looking for gentle exfoliation. At the Lisa S. Ball, NP Building, our aesthetician Jamie Popp is well versed and experienced with this specific treatment.Jamie Popp Dermaplaning

Utilizing a special medical-grade scalpel, everything from dirt, oil, dead skin, and ‘peach fuzz’ are all removed during the process. This leaves the skin fresher, smoother, and brighter-looking immediately after. But those aren’t the only benefits of dermaplaning, here are some others:

  • No downtime
  • Suitable for all skin types
  • Helps makeup apply better
  • Allows skincare products to penetrate deeper and enhances their absorption
  • Addresses fine lines and wrinkles
  • Helps diminish the appearance of acne scars
  • Stimulates the production of collagen and new skin cells
  • Leaves the skin with an overall dewy look
  • Helps to even out skin tone
  • A great add-on to chemical peels, facials, or HydraFacials

As you can see, dermaplaning has a variety of benefits. It’s important to note, however, that the skill and experience of the person doing the treatment has a big influence as well. Contact our office today to learn more about the process and schedule an appointment.

By John Sciria, Patient Care Coordinator at Lisa S. Ball, NP at the Neiman Dermatology Building

Working in dermatology for over 10 years, I know the significance of an annual skin cancer examination. But recently, I had my first at our office with Nurse Practitioner Lisa Ball (PhD, FNP-BC). Prior to that, I would usually just get a specific mole checked out, never a full-body exam. And I have to say, I don’t know why I waited so long.

The visit began with Lisa’s assistant Vicki gathering my medical history. From there, she then asked my reason for coming in. I explained to her that after a recent visit with my primary doctor he recommended that I get my moles checked out. After finishing with my history, Vicki then gave me a medical exam gown to get changed into and left the room.

A couple of minutes later, Lisa came in and began her examination. It was really interesting to observe firsthand as she used a dermatoscope (a handheld device used to check skin lesions) from head to toe. Throughout the assessment, she really paid close attention to hard-to-see areas such as the scalp and the back. Marked out suspicious spots, took pictures of them (for future reference), and even took a biopsy of a lesion on the back of my leg. To say she was thorough would be an understatement. Thirty minutes was allocated for my appointment, and she used every minute.

One thing I want to mention is just how good of a job Lisa did in making me feel comfortable and at ease (because let me tell you, standing in front of your boss in your underwear can be just a tad intimidating). But in all seriousness, this is something I hear all the time from her patients and it shows how great of a provider she truly is.

If you too would like to schedule an appointment will Lisa, or any of our other providers, contact our office today. Remember, when it comes to skin cancer, the best prevention is early detection!

SkinCeuticals Silymarin CF

The ingredients of l-ascorbic acid, ferulic acid, salicylic acid, and silymarin (milk thistle extract) all help to prevent oil oxidation. Which in turn lowers the possibility of breakouts. Aside from that, it can also significantly improve skin texture, clarity, radiance, and fine lines.

With all that SkinCeuticals Silymarin CF can do, it’s easy to see why it’s the perfect product for those dealing with acne. If you would like more information about this, or any of our other products, call 716-688-0020 or click here.
