  • What is the best cream for hyperpigmentation?

    Assuming your hyperpigmentation is from melasma or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, a combination of hydroquinone, hydrocortisone, tretinoin, kojic acid, and nicotinamide might be the best option for you. This combination has worked really well for my patients. READ MORE

  • How do you get rid of acne scars?

    Acne scars can be very tricky at times to treat. Depending on the depth and type of scar options may include subcision with hyaluronic acid fillers below the scar, microneedling, laser ablation, lesional TCA peel, or a combination of the above. READ MORE

  • Is mohs surgery safe?

    Mohs surgery is a very safe way of removing skin cancer. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia decreasing the risks involved going under general anesthesia. However, there are risks with any procedure, and while minimal with Mohs surgery, they include bleeding, infection, and scar. READ MORE

  • Is Mohs surgery painful?

    Hi, If you are needing Mohs surgery you likely had a skin biopsy to confirm the type of cancer first. Mohs surgery is performed under local anesthesia using lidocaine, just like when you had a skin biopsy. Once, you are numb there is minimal to no pain. I hope this was helpful. READ MORE

  • What helps stop facial skin irritation?

    Winter is a common time when patients report skin dryness and irritation due to the decrease in humidity. One of the best ways to prevent excessively dry skin is to moisturize with good skin products such as Cetaphil, CeraVe, or Aveeno immediately after bathing. If your skin is red and itchy sometimes a topical steroid can be used for a short duration of time to calm down the skin irritation. READ MORE
