Ready to Get Really Great Skin?

Do you get facials regularly? Do you see results?

Three months of summer can be a great thing - we hope you've had time to relax, enjoy a vacation or two, make a few memories and spend time at the beach or pool.

The Mask of Pregnancy: Melasma and Its Effect on the Skin

The Mask of Pregnancy: Melasma and Its Effect on the Skin

The skin condition melasma is a hyper pigmentation skin disorder impacting over 5 million Americans, according to the International Dermal Institute. Melasma was brought into the spotlight earlier this year when ABC News chief meteorologist Ginger Zee revealed that she has melasma during a segment on Good Morning, America.

The disorder affects women more frequently than men; the American Academy of Dermatology estimates that just 10 percent of melasma sufferers are men.

Zee developed the skin condition while pregnant with her son. Melasma is a common skin problem that causes the skin to develop gray or brown patches. The condition is brought on by prolonged sun exposure or changes in hormones brought on by pregnancy, menopause and the use of birth control and is often referred to as the mask of pregnancy.

Don't Skimp on Skin Care

Don't Skimp on Skin Care

A British woman found out that cheaper isn’t always better, especially when it comes to getting dermal fillers. The woman took advantage of an offer for discount lip injections advertised on social media by an unregulated and unlicensed salon and ended up with serious complications. While we know everyone loves a bargain, injectables and skin care are not where you want to go cheap. Dr. Johnson is a board-certified physician licensed to perform high-quality cosmetic and aesthetic procedures, and although they may cost a little more, they are worth every penny.

A facial or skin rejuvenating treatment at your neighborhood salon or a friend’s at-home spa party can be tempting. But while these options may seem fun, convenient or less expensive at the time, you may end up paying more in the end. Letting a friend of a friend of a friend who watched her cousin do skin treatments once is not a good idea. You could be putting your skin in the hands of people who have no business touching it.

If the person performing your procedure is unlicensed and lacks the proper training or experience to do your chemical peel, microdermabrasion, laser skin procedure or any other cosmetic procedure, you could end up with serious damage like scarring or hyperpigmentation. This damage may be costly to fix, or may not be fixable at all. Using only licensed providers trained in skin care procedures protects you from the risk of irreversible skin damage.
