Ah, the final arrival of summer and the time for outdoor activities and getting together with friends. Since it is the summertime, it is important to protect your skin by wearing protective hats and sunscreens and being aware that the sun is at itsí strongest from 10 am until 4 pm. Sunscreens need to be applied repeatedly during the day and ideally 30 minutes before sun exposure. Remember there is lots of reflection from sand and water and even if there is cloud cover there is still 80% of the ultraviolet light that gets through.

Kelo-cote is a patented, topical, silicone gel for the management of scars and for the prevention of abnormal scars in the form of hypertrophic scars and keloids. silicone has demonstrated clinical efficacy over all other forms of topical treatments and has become the gold standard for scar treatment and scar prevention. Kelo-cote is indicated for scars resulting from trauma, surgery, burns or other events that result in broken skin. Kelo-cote gel cross links upon application to form a waterproof, transparent, gas permeable membrane that acts like an extra layer of skin. Learn More about Kelo-Cote

Revaleskin Intense recovery treatmentRevaleskin update for our Rosacea patients:

Many of you who have tried the Revaleskin Intense recovery treatment have reported improvement with respect to their skin. As we all know, Rosacea is a difficult management problem and although there are no scientific double blind control studies attesting to its superiority over anything else, many are finding an improvement in their skin color and texture. Ultraviolet light exposure generates considerable oxidative stress and as Ravaleskin contains a powerful antioxidant it is theorized that it should be effective for prevention of photoaging.
