Summer skin clean up! ⛱We are obsessed with data @entierederm. Just like my patients, I’m getting my skin analyzed with the Visia Canfield photography system which measures my brown spots, texture, pores, wrinkles, red spots, and bacteria load, before my broadband light (BBL) treatment. Since I started undergoing regular BBL and Halo sessions, my skin is objectively years younger. @sciton_inc may call it BroadBandLight but I call it the Benjamin Button Light! Yeah... I’m the Queen of #nerdjokes Whatttt.... Now I want to re-watch that movie. #thefutureisnow #techbeauty #happysunday #selfcaresunday #BBL #benjaminbuttonskin #benjaminbuttonlight #brownspots #laser #antiaging #beauty #skincare #entierederm

Dry brushing? Getting lots of questions about how to get rid of sun damage skin but does dry brushing actually help? Thanks to @selfmagazine for the interview to break down dry brushing. In general, dry brushing is exfoliation of the skin on dry skin rather than wet skin which increases friction and therefore, more exfoliation. Taking a shower afterwards, ensures that the dead skin cells that were exfoliated from dry brushing are removed gently. It's important to use a moisturizer afterwards to ensure no irritation, dryness, and minimizing dry cuts to the skin from exfoliation. Careful with my dry skin or eczema prone skin types! This can worsen or cause dry patches. Work with your derm or read the article for more tips and knowledge for dry brushing. #linkinbio #dermatology #skintips #skin #skinhealth #dryskin #exfoliate #nycdermatologist #drybrushing #drmkl #entierederm @entierederm

One of my favorite “lunch time” for light procedures for my patients. Broadband light (BBL) is a photofacial that treats sun damage and aging of the skin by using visible light and targeted filters to specifically treat redness, broken capillaries, brown spots, and aging of the skin. I practice what I preach! Come find me this weekend in NYC and you can see my recovery which is barely anything! Just brown speckles on the skin which is the pigment being eliminated from the skin. #bbl #photofacial #sundamage #pigment #antiaging #dermatologist #summerskin #fallintobeauty @entierederm @sciton_inc

Proud of our very own @jacquelinemrowan who is a #CoolSculptingPro! We are so excited to implement all the training and expertise for our patients. A short home Bay Area visit for us two New York/Cali ladies while continuing to learn and train on the number one non-invasive body sculpting treatment?!

Hemorrhoid creams for dark circles? Whaaattttt?!? Love this interview with @mydomaine @hadleymendelsohn about different fix its for dark circles. So let’s get back to this hemorrhoid cream situation.... There are different types of hemorrhoid creams. Preparation H is an over the counter popular hemorrhoid cream that has ingredients that can constricts and narrows blood vessels which can help reduce puffiness. However, I do not recommend as a regular eye cream as it can cause irritation as well as clogging of pores. Makeup artists use this for "special occasions" for a quick fix but I do not recommend this for long term regular use. Some hemorrhoid creams can contain ingredients such as topical steroids which can thin out the skin and cause more blood vessels if used for long periods of time.

Water seems so overrated until you start drinking enough water regularly and realize that you’re not that tired, sleepy, constipated or moody anymore. YAH! Then you read about the importance of water and stumble across a study that found drinking 16 ounces of water daily increases your metabolic rate by 30%! Team Entière - Your Entière water bottle is 17 oz! In general, it’s recommended to get 64 ounces of water daily. That’s about 3.75 bottles. Let’s start our first Entière Healthy Living Challenge. 💪🏼 #getit #PSA #water #fallchallenge #teamhealth #environment #sustainableliving #entierederm @jacquelinemrowan @franceswells @mari_lala_ @entierederm

Pick up your copy of @brides this month before Mama Kanchanapoomi gets all of them. (Yes my maiden name is Kanchanapoomi!) I love taking care of brides (& grooms!) and getting them ready for the big day. It’s important to give your dermatologist ample amount of time to get your skin to perfection. I like it when my brides start seeing me 6-12 months and we map out a skin beauty plan together - from clearing and treating any skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, eczema, then progressing to brightening and evening out the skin tone and texture, gentle enhancements with fillers and neuromodulators, and of course, being lucky enough to be a part of such a special time in their lives. Thanks for the interview @ginaway1 and always love being in good company with @drdendy for her tips! 👰🏻👰🏼👰🏽👰🏾👰🏿#brides #wedding

Gotta love a recycled headshot! 😬 In fun news, head over to @differinus to ask your questions about adult acne today! I know you got them! There are so many myths and misunderstandings about acne, especially adult female acne. As a dermatologist, I spend a lot of time educating patients about do’s and don’ts for their skin when dealing with acne. #differinpartner #retinoid #acne #clearskin #skinhealth #womenshealth #entierederm @entierederm

One of the best events yet as a #DifferinPartner speaking to brilliant and beautiful beauty editors alongside my long lost twinstar @allanface about acne, building and maintaining proper skin care, and incorporating a healthy make-up routine despite dealing with acne. Differin Gel is a prescription strength retinoids which dermatologists have been using to treat acne for decades. Two years ago, when Differin Gel went over the counter, this changed the course of how we are able to treat acne in an affordable and accessible way.

After creating a personalized skincare routine, I’m often asked about makeup. As a dermatologist, it was such a pleasure for me learn and bounce ideas off one of THE ABSOLUTE BEST humans I’ve met in a long time and celebrity make-up artist in the business. Caring for skin is not just about prescription medications but also the entire skin regimen which can include make-up as well!

You know talent when you see it. You experience genuine kindness and compassion and you fall in love. I was so lucky to have @allanface put this face together and I will never be the same again.

Hot off the press! Pigment is all the rage! When you have more pigment in your skin (which we commonly see in Asian, Latin, Black, Native American, Mediterranean, etc skin), pigmentary conditions and brown spots is a common and natural part of aging. Besides regular sunscreen and antioxidant serums to protect the skin, skin lightening agents are being studied more extensively. Proud of our review of systemic skin lightening agents with superstar @ucidermresearch @ucirvine dermatology resident doctor @mljuhasz! #ClickontheLink to read more. #dermatology #entierejournalclub #skinschool #research #publish #melasma #skinlightening #pigment #antiaging #skinhealth #beauty #brownspots #asianskincare #latinskincare #blackskincare #hotoffthepress
