Hair Loss Blog – Common Causes

July 10th, 2018 | Categories: Cosmetic, Hair Loss

The most common cause of hair loss, or alopecia, is genetic. This has been called androgenetic or male pattern or female pattern. While it commonly runs in families, it doesn’t matter if your parents or siblings have lost their hair - if you have the gene and it gets turned on, your hair will begin and continue to thin. In men this may manifest as complete hair loss (think Q ball). Most women do not lose their hair line but can have significant thinning on their scalp (think old lady with puffed up blue hair). Androgenetic alopecia usually begins in the 20's or 30's (although we see more and more cases in late teens).... Read More

What Defines a Successful Cosmetic Procedure?

September 18th, 2016 | Categories: Cosmetic

My patients want to look better – a little lift, smoother wrinkles and lines, no pigmentation or melasma, get rid of that acne scarring and spider veins, younger hands/neck/chest/hands, stronger/more masculine jaw (mostly men), softer features (mostly women), improved profile with decreased fat (yes, I said it, fat) under the chin, and so on. But all patients also want this:  “I want to look natural”. Or, “I don’t want my friends/family/spouse to know that I am getting ‘work’ done”. Or, “I don’t want to look like one of those men/women.” In a way, this is a paradox. But in a way it’s really the rig... Read More

People often wonder what exactly rosacea is. The simple answer is: rosacea is a chronic skin condition that appears most often on the face causing the skin to turn red and making it vulnerable to pimples and bumps.
