How do you get that glow? By sticking with a good skin care routine of Vitamin C, SPF, and a retinol and regular in office treatments like peels, lasers, and microneedling. Not sure where to start? Your dermatologist can help 👩🏼‍⚕️🙋🏼‍♀️ For appointments, please call 04-447-1777

One of my favorite treatments is under eye #fillers. This treatment takes about 15 minutes and instantly makes people look more refreshed. As we age, the fat around our 👀 starts to disappear and this creates a sunken appearance that makes people look tired. By replacing that lost volume with hyaluronic acid, we plump the skin back up to where it should be. The trick with getting this treatment just right is to avoid going overdoing it. Too much undereye filler can make people look puffy or over done. Swipe ⬅️ to see this beauty’s before and immediately after 💉💉

And then there are days that are so incredibly satisfying, you forget you were ever tired. . . 😊 This lovely patient had #melasma a type of pigmentation that is VERY stubborn! These afters are 6 weeks after #dermamelan deep peeling mask that we apply in the office. This treatment has about 10-14 days of redness and peeling but the end results are well worth it!

Healthcare providers on social media are becoming a growing source of health information online. This platform has been such a fun and effective way for me to connect with patients and spread awareness about topics in dermatology. Unfortunately, on Instagram and other social media platforms, there are a lot of unreliable sources that are spreading inaccurate information. As part of the #VerifyHealthcare campaign, I am committed to being transparent in my qualifications so that you can make an informed interpretation of what I post. It is important that you verify those that are providing you with information, especially on social media. It can be as easy as performing a quick google search 🔎. .

Ευχαριστώ Cyprus!

✈️Will Travel For Dermatology✈️ After spending the day exploring the lovely seaside town of Limassol 😎 it’s time to get down to business! So excited to join dermatologists and plastic surgeons from all over the Middle East in Cyprus to discuss ways we can improve our practices and deliver even better patient outcomes👊🏻

As we age, the corners of the mouth start to turn downwards and volume loss in the chin and jaw creates what’s known as “marionette lines” circled here. This gives the impression that someone is angry or sad. I injected just a touch of filler to lift the corner of the mouth and rebuild the structural support of the chin. Swipe ⬅️ to see both sides. Photos taken immediately before and immediately after filler injections.

No threads, no surgeries, just a bit of strategically placed filler to create this lovely patient’s transformation. 2018, the year of the defined jawline continues! By giving her a stronger chin and a sculpted jawline, she looks prettier, more youthful, and thinner! Facial contouring perfection 😍

So after SPF, the best thing you can do for your skin is apply a RETINOID regularly. 👩🏼‍⚕WHAT? The word retinoids refers to a class of vitamin A derived creams. Retinols are the over the counter version and Tretinoin is the prescription strength version. Both are effective but prescription strength works faster. 👩🏼‍⚕WHY? Retinoids stimulate collagen production to plump the skin and reduce fine lines, lighten brown spots, unclog pores, fight acne, and promote cell turnover to brighten complexions and even out skin tone. I mean, seriously is there anything this wonder drug can’t do? 👩🏼‍⚕WHO? By age 30, the collagen in the skin starts to decline. So if you’ve crossed this milestone, the time is reti-NOW. Start using a retinoid every other night to avoid irritation and peeling and then build to nightly as your skin gets used to it. 👩🏼‍⚕WHICH? So which one, retinol or tretinoin should you use? Well, depends on how sensitive your skin is. I prefer recommending prescription tretinoin because you’ll see the results faster and most people can tolerate using the lowest concentrations without much irritation. However, if your skin is very dry or extra sensitive or you’ve never used one before, start with OTC retinol like @skinceuticals or @obagi just a few times a week and build as tolerated. 👩🏼‍⚕BEST ADVICE I CAN GIVE: less is more with retinols! Your skin has a set amount of receptors for retinoids and so only a certain amount can be absorbed. Just use a pea sized amount for the whole face to avoid the excess product irritating the skin surface. 👩🏼‍⚕

My patient sent me her lip selfie before and after to share how excited she was by her new perfect pout💋Although I used 2cc of hyaluronic acid to get this look, we did it gradually over several months. By spacing out the treatments, I gave her a dramatic change in terms of size but still preserved her natural look and kept her downtime to a minimum. Remember, no one should be able to tell you had your lips done, unless you decide to tell! Otherwise, my lips are sealed 💋

I’m not saying patients do better with female doctors, but @nytimes is ☺️👩🏼‍⚕️ Repost from @drjeanetteblack

There are good days and then there are great days! This beauty popped in for a four week follow up after my injections to dissolve double chin fat and to show off that freshly sculpted jawline! Literally. I. Can’t. Even. 😍
