Is Sunscreen Safe for Infants?

Posted by Lynn Tucker on Mon, Feb 20, 2017 @ 07:37 AM

nuclear family.jpegParenthood is a minefield of choices, concerns, and doubt.  Are you feeding your child well enough?  Do they get enough sleep?  To what toxins are they being exposed? The questions run endlessly through a new parent’s mind. 

Research often results in more confusion as each article and study seems to conflict the next.  The task of confidently making safe choices quickly begins to feel impossible.  Fortunately, not all decisions have to be so difficult, and there are some, such as applying sunscreen, that you can make while remaining assured of your child’s safety.

What the Internet Says vs. What the Experts Say

A simple online search for sunscreen and infants may be enough to have you scurrying back indoors and drawing the shades.  But, not so fast.  If your baby is over 6 months old, head out the door with sun-protective clothing, sunscreen, and confidence.  Across all reputable sources, including the FDA and Skin Cancer Foundation, sunscreen application on children over the age of 6 months is a safe and healthy practice.  In fact, studies have revealed that the ingredients commonly cited as points of concern, such as oxybenzone, pose no threat greater than potential contact irritation.

Can I Still Use Sunscreen if My Baby is Under 6 Months Old?

Most labels and online resources direct parents to ask their pediatrician before using sunscreen on infants under 6 months.  Why?  According to Dr. Mercedes E. Gonzales of the University of Miami, this is only a precaution due to a lack of research in this age group.  Product safety studies have not yet included children so young.  However, as Dr. Gonzales notes, there is “nothing magical” that occurs in infant skin after the 6 month mark.

Making the Most Out of Sun Protection

Despite the safety of sunscreen, experts still agree that it should not be the only line of defense against the sun.  Babies do have thinner, more delicate skin that is less capable of protecting them from the elements.  Whenever possible, particularly during the midday hours, keep your infant out of the sun all together.  When exposure is necessary, make use of sun-protective clothing such as long sleeves, hats, and sunglasses, and accompany these with a broad-spectrum, water-resistant SPF of 30 or above.

As the gorgeous days of spring and the dog days of summer are quick approaching, you will likely want to get out and enjoy the beautiful outdoors with your little one.  Make the most of these times, but do it wisely.  Use proper sun protection, including sunscreen.  It’s one parenting decision in which you can be fully confident.

What Does Sculptra Do?

Posted by Cosmetic Dermatology Clinic on Sun, Nov 20, 2016 @ 10:03 AM

Sculptra_Aesthetic_IPLA_L_US_RGB.jpgSculptra Aesthetic creates a more youthful appearance in patients and works subtly and gradually over time. Unlike hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers (such as Restylane), Sculptra Aesthetic aids in the stimulation of the skin’s own natural collagen production which helps rebuild deteriorated collagen complexes and increase facial volume that had been lost to aging. 

Slow & Steady 
The gradual appearance of the results of the Sculptra treatment program (usually consisting of three injections over the course of three to four months) work in favor of subtle improvementsand can last up to two years.

The Role of Collagen
Collagen is a key structural component of smooth, healthy-looking skin. As you age, your body’s collagen production decreases. In fact, you lose about 1% of collagen per year after the age of 20. This is when you may start to notice the formation of wrinkles. Luckily, Sculptra Aesthetic can help, even if decades of collagen loss have already occurred.

 If the laugh lines on your face are showing more than how much you smile, Dr Lynn Tucker can help to reduce the depth of the nasolabial folds with your body's own collagen through Sculptra Aesthetic.  Make an appointment for a consultation and injection.  Check out our current specials on our specials page too.

Sculptra Aesthetic is intended for use in people with healthy immune systems as a one-time treatment regimen of up to four injection sessions that are scheduled about three weeks apart.  All Photos from Galderma, parent company of Sculptra Aesthetic.

What does 2 mL of Restylane, Restylane Silk, or Restylane Lyft do?

Posted by Cosmetic Dermatology Clinic on Thu, Nov 17, 2016 @ 12:32 PM

The Restylane line of products (Restylane, Restylane Silk, and Restylane Lyft) are designed to act like your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a phenomenal product that combats the signs of aging with a moisture building science whereby the Hyaluronic acid is capable of binding 6 liters of water to only 1 gram (0.03 ounces) of hyaluronic acid! 

The Restylane family of products has a technology that allows a unique particle size for each Restylane product, which means each product in the Restylane family is designed to treat a different type of wrinkle or part of the face. This specific particle size for wrinkle depth means more natural-looking results.

 

Restylane_L_RGB.jpgRestylane - LARGER PARTICLES FOR SEVERE WRINKLES AND GREATER VOLUME

Restylane is most often used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds or laugh lines).

Restylane Patient #1

Restylane Lyft blue png.pngRestylane Lyft - MEDIUM-SIZED PARTICLES FOR MODERATE TO SEVERE WRINKLES AND FOLDS

Restylane Lyft is approved by the FDA for cheek augmentation (plumping) and the correction of age-related midface contour deficiencies. Over time, the fat in our cheeks starts to deteriorate and the fullness of the cheeks decreases and the depth and severity of mid-face wrinkles increases. Restylane Lyft rebuilds the fullness of cheeks and treats moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (smile lines).

Restylane_SILK_1Color_Portrait.jpgRestylane Silk - FINER PARTICLES FOR FINE WRINKLES AND DETAILED SHAPING

Restylane Silk is the first FDA-approved product specifically designed for lip augmentation and the smoothing of wrinkles around the mouth.

The lips and the lines around the mouth, like other areas of the face, show signs of aging as you get older. This often results in lip thinning, lost shape and an increase in vertical lines above the lip. Restylane Silk is designed specifically to provide natural-looking results in these particular areas by using smaller, smoother hyaluronic acid particles than those used in other Restylane® products.

Dr Lynn Tucker at Cosmentic Dermatology Clinic is well known in Baton Rouge as one of the best "filler" doctors due to her increase frequesncy of procedures and extensive knowledge of product lines and technology behind them.  If you are considering fillers, particularly the Restylane family of products, schedule an appointment with Dr Tucker.

Necklifts Without Surgery in Baton Rouge

Posted by Cosmetic Dermatology Clinic on Mon, Apr 04, 2016 @ 03:56 PM

lax_neck-491312-edited.jpegFor men and women alike, the sight of a sagging neck can trigger a desire to lose weight, improve posture, and moisturize more.  All of these are fantastic habits and encouraged by medical professionals. However as skin ages, it loses laxity and will begin to show the signs of gravity with sag.

With advances in dermatology and devices that enable non-surgical improvements in skin appearance and tautness, it's no wonder so many patients are seeking out the assistance of dermatologists, not plastic surgeons. 

 

Dr Lynn Tucker offers several treatment options to improve the appearance of the neck. Here are a few:

Exilis: is an exciting technological device that uses radio frequency (RF) energy to contour the body and face and to tighten skin. Exilis is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that takes about an hour, reduces fat, and firms skin in the face and body.

Nectifirm: is a cream that uses proven technology to improve the appearance of the skin by firming and lifting, reducing rough,crepey skin, and minimizing fine lines and wrinkles.  In conjunction with a daily moisturizer with SPF 20 (minimum), Nectifirm can smooth and tighten necks to reverse and prevent the signs of agin in the fragile decolletage and neck skin.

SkinPen: is an in-office treatment that uses the skin's own collagen, along with topicals to encourage additional improvement, to smooth, tighten, and even skin via a process of micro-needling.  Microneedling uses tiny needles that create channels reaching the layer of skin (the dermis) that releases elastin and collagen.  SkinPen is the safest, most effective microneedling procedure available to date. 

Laser Treatments: are painless, quick, and effective for evening skin tone and boost collagen production in the area treated.  Laser treatments may be recommended in conjunction with other treatments for the most effective, optimal outcomes.

If neck firmness and sagging appearance have been growing issues for you over the recent months and years and surgery is not a consideration, contact Dr Lynn Tucker for a consult and see what your options are for treatments and potential outcomes.

2016 Skin Care Trends

Posted by Lynn Tucker on Mon, Dec 28, 2015 @ 12:18 PM

2016.jpeg

 

With 2015 coming to an end, start the New Year off right! In this post, we feature the upcoming skin care trends of 2016.  We have lots of ways to help keep you on trend in 2016.

The Natural Look is IN

For many of us, going minimal on makeup or au naturale is made more difficult by aging skin, uneven skin tone, wrinkles, or poor texture.  Luckily, there are numerous options to treat and improve the appearance of virtually every negative aspect of your skin.

  • Hyperpigmentation? Focus on getting skin to its best natural look possible and reducing hyperpigmentation via our multiple non-invasive treatment options from topicals, peels, needling, laser treatments, or a combination of these. Whether it’s dark spots, acne scars or freckles, our rejuvanative and preventative measures will get you on the right track for natural, healthy looking skin.
  • Skin damage? Dark spots, fine lines, and uneven skin texture are all signs of skin damage. Everyone develops some amount of skin damage over time, whether due to lifestyle factors or aging. A number of treatments such as microneedling, chemical peels, and topicals are used to smooth the skin’s surface to reverse skin damage and naturally improve the skin’s overall appearance and health.
  • Wrinkles? It’s no secret that the skin looses fullness and firmness with age. Plump up sinking skin with fillers or smooth wrinkles with a wrinkle reducer like Botox, Xeomin, or Dysport. Depending on your goals and preferences, both options offer a positive impact on your appearance, especially when applied by a skilled doctor. 
  • Not So Plump Features? As we age, our plump and supple facial features (cheeks, lips, nasolabial folds) can begin to sink in, thin out, and deepen.  Using dermal fillers to revitalize the lost volume can provide a subtle "lift" to the face.

Tan is OUT
Skin cancer is by far the most prevalent cancer in the U.S., affecting over 3.5 million people annually. One in five people will be diagnosed with skin cancer in their lifetime. Living in the South doesn’t make it easy to escape the sun, no matter what season, so it’s important to consider the basics of skin cancer prevention and to take measures to reduce risk of skin cancer and skin damage year-round.

Tanning beds are obviously BIG no-no’s, with a 75% increased chance of developing melanoma with just one session. Beautiful skin is possible at any age, whether you’re in your 40’s, 50’s, 60’s or 70’s, as it is a result of protecting it at earlier ages.

Wear your sunscreen (minimum SPF 15), sport UFP protective clothing, seek shade when available, avoid peak hours of UV exposure, and DON'T TAN!

Scars are a Thing of the Past (Without Surgery)
Stop suffering from acne scars with treatments such as the SkinPen, Bellafill, or laser resurfacing.  All of these treatments are non-invasive with minimal to no side effects that provide natural results. The right treatment will depend on the type of scaring, your preferences, and how your skin has responded to scar treatments in the past.

  • Bellafill is the first FDA approved dermal filler specifically for the reduction in appearance of acne scars.  The results are extremely long lasting and apparent. The treatment requires a skin test be performed prior to injection of the filler, and the wait time between skin test and treatment is a few weeks.
  • SkinPen is a microneedling tool that resurfaces the skin by creating very fine channels in the skin, promoting the production of the skin's own collagen. Topicals can be applied during the SkinPen treatment to further enhance the effectiveness and improvement seen in the skin's texture and smoothness.
  • Laser Resurfacing is a procedure whereby a laser is used, with high precision, to treat delicate areas of the face.  The laser will remove the top layer (epidermis) of the skin and prompt collagen production below, resulting in tighter, smoother skin.

Balanced, Fuller Lips
Numerous women, some following famous media figures, are electing to improve the appearance of the lip and nasolabial area with the use of fillers.

  • Juvederm, Restylane, and Belotero fillers all have a positive impact on your appearance in the nasolabial fold area, however, you should decide which treatment fits best with your goals and preferences. Your doctor will discuss which lip filler is best for you at your appointment.  
  • Restylane Silk is the first filler specifically designed for the lips and skin around the lips.  It smooths fine wrinkles, plumps up lips and nasolabial folds, and enhances the overall appearance of the face and smile.  With an injection needle specifically designed for lips, it is much better suited than predecesor fillers.

Firmer Necks & Chins (We Are Talking to YOU, Men)
Skin tightening treatments, with Exilis or with lotions like Nectifirm, have been used to improve overall appearance for years by women, but men are starting to catch on to the trend. One ideal of masculinity is a strong jawline (a la Brad Pitt), and with more non-surgical options than ever for achieving this, men are seeking changes here.

According to the new 2016 skin trend survey, 7 out of 10 doctors believe the neck or chin will be the most popular body part in 2016 for cosmetic procedure. There are now non-surgical procedures for reducing the ‘double-chin’ that are FDA approved and extremely popular.

  • Nectifirm is a topical lotion that has produced marked reductions in skin sagging and laxity for many patients.  It requires no appointment and can be used at home.
  • Exilis is a tool that tightens skin with multiple in-office treatments.  The wand is applied to the area being treated and heated (to a tolerable temperature) to prompt the dermis to change and tighten.

A new year means a new you. Dr. Tucker offers a variety of skin care services that will keep your skin healthy and glowing all year long. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.

Skin Protection For Kids: Helpful Tips for Southern Parents

Posted by Lynn Tucker on Tue, Nov 10, 2015 @ 11:00 AM

 

Your child’s favorite memories will be made while playing outside with friends, taking family trips to the beach and, of course, during Summer Break. Living in the South also means we have to take extra measures for protecting our children’s skin from the Sun's strong and harmful rays. Sunscreen and skin care is at the top of every southern parent’s agenda, but something as minor as choosing the wrong sunscreen or not reapplying can do more harm than you might think.

While the function of the skin is the same for all, the skin of babies and children is far more sensitive than the skin of an adult. In fact, the top layer of skin (the epidermis) of babies and toddlers is only about 2/3 as thick as an adults, making penetration of UV rays, environmental toxins and other harmful external substances much easier. With that, not all skin care products will protect their skin, and some can actually do more harm than good. There are several factors to consider when choosing the right sun protection for your child. For your child to have the utmost protection against harsh rays, it’s important to know:

  • The different types of sunscreens
  • The right SPF 
  • The importance of Broad Spectrum
  • Spray on vs. rub on
  • The most effective ingredients
  • Alternative methods of protection and much more 

All parents want the best for their children, especially when it comes to health and wellness, but not all know the best practices for keeping their children safe during the hot summer months. The Mom’s Guide to Protecting Children’s Skin is a short and simple guide that thoroughly explains:

  • The difference between adult and juvenile skin
  • The impact a healthy skin care routine has on children
  • The facts about skin damage in children
  • What to look for in an effective sunscreen
  • Alternative methods for skin protection

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in all individuals in the U.S. Having an effective skin care routine for your child not only protects them when they are young, but it will stick with them for life. The first 18 years of a child’s life is crucial for them to maintain healthy skin for life. Children trust their parents to keep them safe and teach them what they need to live a long, healthy and happy life. Children grow up fast, so download The Mom’s Guide to Protecting Children’s Skin now to start teaching your child about the importance of skin care.

Thinning Hair? This Natural Product May Help

Posted by Lynn Tucker on Tue, Oct 27, 2015 @ 03:29 PM

thinning_hair_in_Baton_RougeThinning hair is a common problem among adults in the US. In fact, roughly 56 million people in America have thinning hair, although only a small portion look into treatments for it. This problem can have a negative impact on self-esteem and emotional well-being, making people feel self-conscious and unhappy with their appearance. Thankfully, there are safe and effective ways to correct this problem and have thicker hair again. 

Problems With Hair Thinning Treatments

Some treatment methods for thinning hair involve taking medications and putting yourself at risk of experiencing side effects. Others involve paying a considerable amount of money to undergo hair replacement surgery, which can be painful. Many products that are designed to help thinning hair are also filled with harsh chemicals and preservatives, which aren’t healthy for your body. Finding a hair thinning treatment that is affordable, safe and effective can be difficult, but there is a natural option available. 

Natural Hair Regrowth Products

Kevis 8 offers a hair regrowth product with natural ingredients for those with thinning hair. This formula works by providing the scalp with nutrients that help improve circulation, repair hair follicles and make them more vibrant. The nutrients in this product also stimulate follicles, which helps encourage hair growth. 

Kevis 8, which is made in Italy, does not contain any harsh chemicals or drugs. Instead, this product has natural, technically engineered ingredients that will produce results without causing unpleasant side effects. Kevis 8 is designed for use on men and women with thinning hair and has been available in the US for more than a decade. It works more thoroughly than other types of hair regrowth products, since it goes beyond simply treating hair thinning symptoms. Kevis 8 is able to treat the causes of thinning hair, which helps correct the problem and prevent it from recurring. 

How Kevis 8 Works

Thinning hair is typically caused by a buildup of a hormone called dihydro-testosterone (DHT), which can end up blocking blood flow to hair follicles. As a result, these follicles shrink, leading to hair thinning and loss. Kevis 8 contains a high amount of hyaluronic acid, which is believed to help break up DHT buildup and bind to follicle receptors, which prevents DHT from accumulating again. Another ingredient in this hair regrowth product, called Tricozyme, is thought to attach to roaming DHT molecules that have not made it to hair follicles. This protein enzyme stops these molecules from reaching the follicles and building up. 

Kevis 8 is designed to provide permanent results for people with thinning hair, although individual results vary. The company claims that the protection this product gives hair follicles prevents DHT molecules from binding to them and causing hair thinning again.

Reasons A Young Professional Should Visit The Dermatologist

Posted by Lynn Tucker on Fri, Oct 09, 2015 @ 05:18 PM

Appearance might not be everything when it comes to job success, but it can play a big role. Studies have shown that certain physical characteristics are associated with being more successful in one’s career. While you can’t always change everything you’d like to about your physical appearance, such as your height, you can take steps to correct flaws or blemishes to boost your chance of success. Here’s a closer look at how the way your look can affect your career.

 Build vs. Cosmetic Features

young_professionals-should-visit-dermatologistResearch findings have shown that height and weight can affect how much people make during their career and how successful they’re perceived to be. A 2010 study found that women who are overweight make roughly $9,000 less than women of average weight, while women who are thin make about $7,000 more than women of average weight.

A 2009 study showed that people who are tall are seen as being smarter and more powerful, which equates to career success. While you can make an effort to lose or gain weight, there’s not much you can about changing your height. 

 Cosmetic features can also impact job success, but fortunately, these are easier to change. A 2012 study found that people with straight teeth are seen as smarter and more successful than those with crooked teeth, which can be fixed with trips to the dentist for teeth straightening procedures. Similarly, getting rid of other unsightly cosmetic features, such as acne, wrinkles or scars, is possible with trips to the dermatologist. 

 Common Skin Problems

Whether you’re just starting your career or working on advancing it even further, looking your best can go a long way toward giving it a boost. With the help of a dermatologist, you can have many types of skin flaws or blemishes corrected with one or more visits. These are some of the most common reasons to consider seeing a dermatologist:

  • Wrinkles: These lines can make you look older and give your face a tired appearance, which can affect your job. Having a procedure done to reduce wrinkles, such as Botox, Xeomin or Dysport, can take years off your appearance and make you look more energized and enthusiastic on the job. 
  • Rough skin: Having rough patches of skin caused by sun exposure or acne can have a negative impact on your appearance. Skin resurfacing, such as laser treatments, microneedling or peels, can give you a smooth, soft and youthful appearance once again. 
  • Laugh lines and fine lines: While laughter is the best medicine, it can lead to laugh lines forming around your mouth. Fine lines around your lips can also form and have the same aging effect. Fillers and SkinPen microneedling procedures can smooth out these lines and make your face look younger. 
  • Loose skin: Your skin becomes looser as you get older, which can cause it to sag. Skin tightening procedures, such as Exilis, can get rid of folds and other unsightly areas of sagging skin to restore a youthful look. 

 Health Screenings

Skin problems aren’t the only reasons to see a dermatologist. Going for regular visits ensures that you have annual skin checks done, which is an effective way to catch skin cancer or other potentially serious problems early. Keep in mind that protecting your health is an important part of making sure you enjoy a long and successful career.  

 If you would like more information on treatment options for skin problems, please contact the Cosmetic Dermatology Clinic.
