Skin cancer is, by far, the most prevalent cancer that is diagnosed in the United States. Melanoma, which typically appears as an unusual mole, is the most dangerous, but thankfully also the least common. Other types of skin cancer, Basal Cell Carcinoma and Squamous Cell Carcinoma (both non-melanoma skin cancers), are the most common types of skin cancer. Over 5.4 million cases of non-melanoma skin cancer are treated in more than 3.3 million people each year in the U.S. Even more, treatment of non-melanoma skin cancers increased by nearly 77-percent between 1992 and 2006 and over the past three decades more people have developed skin cancer than all other cancers combined. Each year there are more new cases of skin cancer reported than colon, lung, prostate and breast combined.

Make 2016 the Year You Get Your Best Body Ever

If “get in shape” was on your new year’s resolution list again this year, you’re not alone. Hoping for a more slender body in 2016 is not just an issue of vanity: a lighter frame and less jiggle can make you more motivated to get in your workout gear and live a healthier lifestyle!

There’s no one thing that will give you your best body, it’s a multifactorial process:

  • Healthy Diet and Exercise: Combine clean eating full of veggies, lean protein, and healthy fats with exercise that includes weight training and cardiovascular exercise.
  • Targeted Body Contouring: Do your part in terms of diet and exercise habits, and let CoolSculpting do the rest! This raved-about procedure allows you to naturally freeze off excess fat to reveal a more svelte and sculpted physique.

Many patients who seek a dermatologist, come with the concern of wanting to look “younger” and seeking “anti-aging” treatments. Really though, it’s not about looking younger necessarily, it’s about looking one’s best at every age and minimizing the things that make one’s skin look weathered and less vibrant. This often involves minimizing wrinkles, folds, and creases in the skin. Not so many decades ago, dermatologists were fairly limited regarding the anti-aging treatments they could prescribe. That has all changed with the development of injectable wrinkle relaxants and injectable fillers. These amazing anti-aging products have made looking younger (and more importantly, more radiant) easier than ever. Even better, use of these products typically comes with minimal side effects while producing incredible and near immediate results.

An effective skin care routine doesn’t have to be complicated. In fact, it’s probably best to make any skin care routine simple. This ensures that you’re more likely to stick to it, and that’s good news for your skin. Not only will a simple skincare routine help your skin look its best, but also it will keep you from making the three easiest skin care mistakes to avoid.

When you look at your neck, do you pull at a little excess pudge under the chin, do you pull back the loose skin to give yourself a virtual lift, or do you try to stretch out the lines and wrinkles to smooth out the skin?

Good news: modern technology can finally take over for your fingers to actually smooth out, tighten, or slim down your neck and jawline the way you’ve been dreaming of!
