Dermatologist Recommended Eye Treatments And Products

dermotologist approved eye treatmentsThey say the eyes are the window to the soul.  And obviously those said windows need to be clear, open and beautiful. That’s why we’re addressing our patients’ top 4 eye issues in this month’s blog. Read on to find out how to make your eyes as beautiful as they can be!

Crepey Skin

What is It?

Thin skin resembling a piece of crepe paper

What Causes It?

Lack of moisture, thin skin and sun damage.

What You Need?

A plumping product containing Hyaluronic Acid.  Look for Oxynergy Paris’ customized formula that uses three different molecular sizes of Hyaluronic Acid to fill in fine lines around the eyes.

You may also want to consider an injectable with a light weight filler like Belotero.

Dark Circles

What is it?

Brown or blue circles that can cover area directly under lower lids.

What Causes It?

Capillaries underneath thin skin too close to the surface.

What You Need?

Look for eye creams with light reflecting pigments and peptides like the ones contained in Tetcha Luminous Deep Hydration Firming Eye Serum.

You may also benefit from a light filler injectable like Belotero, which will provide a nice fill and mask dark circles.  No cover up necessary.

Bags

What is It?

Puffy looking excess skin under the lower lids.

What Causes it?

Fat shifting over time, fluid collection from excessive salt intake, alcohol or genetics.

What You Need?

Products containing caffeine, which improves appearance of under-eye bags, like Dr. Hauschka Daily Revitalizing Eye Cream.  For lower lids Blepharoplasty can conservatively remove displaced fat deposits, while preserving an even layer underneath.

Crow’s Feet

What is It?

Fine lines fanning out from outer corners of the eyes to the temples.

What Causes It?

Years of squinting and laughing show their signs in our 30’s.

What You Need?

Look for products containing Vitamin A, C and peptides that mimic Botox like effect.  We love Environ’s C-Quence Eye Gel.  For a more permanent solution, consider a neurotoxin like Botox, Dysport or Xeomin to soften and erase lines and wrinkles.

New hair Restoration Treatments

New Promising Hair-Loss Treatments for Men (and Women)

Sure, men might be from Mars and women from Venus, but no matter what planet you’re on, you definitely want to have a good hair day. Unfortunately, the older we get, that’s not always in the stars. But a host of out-of-this-world hair loss treatments can prevent your tresses from jetting away.

According to American Hair Loss Association, androgenetic alopecia (a.k.a. Male Pattern Baldness) accounts for more than 95% of hair loss in men. By the age of 35, two-thirds of American men will experience some degree of appreciable hair loss. So, it’s no surprise that hair transplantation is the number one cosmetic procedure among men.

Now, new cutting-edge treatments like Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Rejuvenation—which harnesses the regenerative properties of your own blood cells (critical to the healing process)—and transdermal delivery of follicle-stimulated-growth agents are allowing for a less drastic approach.

Your hair’s appearance and structure are much more complex that they might seem at first glance. Every strand is composed of two structures: the hair shaft above the skin and the hair follicle beneath it. At the base of the follicle are what’s known as dermal papilla and ECM, which play crucial roles in the formation and growth of new hair.

Dramatic results can be achieved when clinically tested blends of certain peptides, growth factors, pantenol, and other active ingredients are delivered trans-dermally and combined with collagen induction therapy. This process creates micro-injuries that encourages new cell growth, thereby stimulating new hair growth and helping prevent hair loss from getting worse.

The best part? These procedures can be done in as little as 20 minutes, require minimal—if any—downtime, and are less costly than traditional hair transplant procedures.
