ASK CHERYL - Melasma or Blotchy Brown Patches

Posted on Nov 22, 2012 11:47:00 PM

Q: I HAVE SOME BLOTCHY BROWN PATCHES OF SKIN ALONG THE SIDE OF MY FACE AND ALONG MY JAWLINE THAT ARE DARKER THAN THE REST OF MY FACE.  MY SKIN LOOKS STAINED AND THE COLOR IS UNEVEN.

A: Melasma is a condition whereby the pigment in your skin darkens unevenly when exposed to the sun.  It is more common in women than men, and causes include hormones, heredity and certain diseases.  When melisma occurs during pregnancy, it is called “pregnancy mask.” 

Once melisma appears, it can be lightened with a combination of topical products and clinical treatments.  The recommended skin products include tretinoins and hydroquinone. 

 

Treatments that speed the lightening of these brown patches include moderate chemical peels, and/or fractional laser.

 

To help prevent melasma from returning, the use of a good broad spectrum sunscreen that contains 5% to 17% zinc oxide as a physical block is mandatory.                                   

We are happy to provide a free consultation and discuss the best treatment program for your complexion.

Ask Cheryl - Quick Summer Skin Care Fixes

Posted on Jul 27, 2012 10:41:00 PM

Q.  What are your recommendations for quick fixes?

A.  Great question. 
Here are my treatment suggestions for instant summer pick-me-up.

 

Cheryl recommends Body Contouring, Wrinkle Fillers and Summer Facials

Body Contouring: Who wouldn't like to lose an inch or two from their tummy now that swimsuit season is here? Talk about instant gratification, Bella Contour, our ultrasonic contouring system, will melt away fat from your abdomen, thighs or upper arms. There is no downtime, no discomfort and works well for men and women.

Facial fillers: Facial fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm, and Radiesse will fill in and soften wrinkles on the lower part of the face. You can also give your lips a little pouf. The results are immediate and you will look natural, yet rested and rejuvenated.

Summer facials: In the summer, our pores tend to get clogged due to heat and humidity, so it is important to have a soothing facial to keep our skin clean, clear and healthy looking. Clinical grade facials are a quick fix to keep you looking your Summer best.
