The Top 4 Ways to Achieve Your 2018 Skincare Goals at Green Dermatology & Cosmetic Center
Everyone is abuzz with the energy of the new year. Almost everywhere you turn, someone is boasting a “new year, new me” attitude. Of course, for us at Green Dermatology & Cosmetic Center in Deerfield Beach, we feel the same way – but only about the best ways to care for your skin in 2018.
And at one of the best dermatology and cosmetic centers in the Boca Raton area, there are a number of ways to help your skin look and feel it’s best as you take 2018 by storm.
Green Dermatology & Cosmetic Center has become a top choice for the best skin treatments in Boca for one reason only:
Dr. Jason Green, owner and founder of Green Dermatology & Cosmetic Center, prides himself on seamlessly fusing together the art of clinical dermatology with cosmetic skincare – a pair that makes for healthy, beautiful skin.
Which is why we’ve compiled a mix of the top 4 ways to care for your skin in 2018, both clinically and cosmetically:
1. Skin Checks
One of the most important ways a dermatologist cares for your skin is by performing a thorough skin check. “I wish more people knew that a 10-minute examination of their skin could be all they need to save themselves from the potentially life-threatening effects of harmful skin cancers,” Dr. Green says.
Dermatologists check your skin using the ABCDE rule for how to spot skin cancers like melanoma:
- Asymmetry: One part of a mole or birthmark doesn’t match the other.
- Border: The edges are irregular, ragged, notched, or blurred.
- Color: The color is not the same all over and may include shades of brown or black, sometimes with patches of pink, red, white, or blue.
- Diameter: The spot is larger than ¼ inch across – about the size of a pencil eraser.
- Evolving: The mole is changing in size, shape, or color.
2. Photorejuvenation (IPL)
IPL treatments, in our humble opinion, is one of the best ways to care for a number of skincare issues at once. Photorejuvenation (IPL- Intense Pulsed Light) laser treatments are most commonly used for:
- Lightening and removing “sun spots”, “age spots”, and brown blotches on the face, neck, chest, hands and other areas of the body
- Lightening and reducing redness, rosacea, dilated blood vessels and “broken” blood vessels on the face, neck and chest
- Helping to control flushing
- It also has a lesser effect of improving skin texture through collagen stimulation and improves pore size minimally by temporarily reducing oiliness
Photorejuvenation at Green Dermatology & Cosmetic Center consists of a series of 3-5 treatments, usually one every two to four weeks, achieving benefits with little discomfort and minimal risk.
3. Laser Hair Removal
The temperatures may have dropped temporarily, but before you know it, it’ll be time to put the oversized clothes away and show off a little skin – smooth, hairless skin, that is. The best laser hair removal in Boca can be found right here in our office, because we use the Cynosure Icon Lux R, the newest and safest model for laser hair removal.
Laser hair removal is a technique that uses beams of broad spectrum light to be absorbed in the pigmented cells of the hair follicles. The light is absorbed by pigment in the hair follicles and destroys the hair within the follicle. Laser hair removal is among the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures in the U.S. Lasers are useful for removing unwanted hair from the face, leg, arm, underarm, and bikini line, as well as other areas where unsightly hair is a problem. The average amount of treatments to have for each location is 6 treatments.
Once considered taboo, and only for the uber-wealthy, skin care injectables have now become accessible to all, due to the incredible demand and interest in treating fine lines and wrinkles.
