    Dr. Jegasothy Recommends Best At-Home Facial Gadget

    Rachel Jacoby Zoldan from W magazine asked Dr. Jegasothy for her opinion on the best at-home facial gadget. Dr. Jegasothy recommends “Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X” for a safe, effective, and easy at-home treatment. This at-home laser hair removal works similarly to a professional in-office laser her removal. With technological advances this gadget has a skin color sensor that automatically accommodates the laser settings to best fit your specific individual needs!

    Scalp treatment vs pre-shampoo? Dr. Jegasothy explains to Nykia Spradley from Coveteur what scalp treatment is and who/why should use it.

    “Scalp treatments are creams and foams [sometimes prescription], which have an active agent such as a cortisone or Vitamin D that actually gets left in the scalp so that patients get a real benefit [for conditions like] psoriasis or seborrheic dermatitis,” say Jegasothy. If you’re unsure about the condition of things under your hair, see a derm first. “If you have a normal, healthy scalp, you don’t want to make it oily or sensitive by using a product that is not right for you,” says Jegasothy.

    Scalp treatments can be used to treat itching, flaking, and irritation on the scalp. Dr. Jegasothy says, individuals with acneic skin or oily scalps are prone to irritation and inflammation on the scalp due to humidity and heat.

    health eye cream V2A daily beauty routine is what’s trending now, so it’s important to choose the best eye cream. Suze Yalof Schwartz from Health Magazine featured Dr. Jegasothy in their article for her top eye cream choices according to your skin needs.

    One eye cream she recommends is the L'Oreal Revitalift Volume Filler Eye Treatment. "This eye treatment is filled with hyaluronic acid, an ingredient found in injectable fillers. As an ingredient in topical serums, fragmented hyaluronic acid benefits the skin by drawing moisture to the epidermis, giving the eye area a plumper and more volumized appearance while filling in fine lines temporarily. This non-greasy formula also contains caffeine."

    Dr. Jegasothy Explains the Difference Between Dry and Dehydrated Skin

    Monday, August 14, 2017, 1:37 PM [General]
    0 (0 Ratings)

    Dr. Jegasothy discusses with Caitlin Miller from Verily magazine the difference between dry and dehydrated skin. Read below the different causes and symptoms one may face if suffering from these skin issues:  

    “Because dry skin is genetic, those who suffer from it might see it manifested in a number of different ways. According to Dr. Jegasothy, causes of dry skin include common inflammatory conditions such as atopic dermatitis or eczema and more chronic skin conditions such as early rosacea and psoriasis.

    Dehydrated skin, on the other hand, is usually short term and induced by very “dry” air or low environmental humidity, explains Dr. S. Manjula Jegasothy, board-certified dermatologist and founder of the Miami Skin Institute. This “dry” air can draw water out of the epidermis by osmosis, which for those who forgot their AP science class, is a physical process where water naturally travels from a place of higher water content to one [of] lower water content. In terms of skin, water leaves normal skin and goes into the drier air, making the skin dehydrated.”

    The common symptoms of both dry and dehydrated skin are similar to more serious skin issues such as skin cancer. If emollients or humectants don’t help, Dr. Jegasothy recommends seeing a dermatologist for definitive diagnosis. Click on the link below to read more about how to prevent and treat your skin!


    Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP) injections have been shown to rejuvenate the skin and improve skin laxity in  difficult-to-treat areas. Currently, Dr. Jegasothy favors using PRP injections to erase neck laxity aka “chicken-skin.” You can see amazing results with only 1 injectable PRP session (see picture above) that can last up to 1 year!

    Dr. Jegasothy Explains the Do’s and Don’ts of Scrubbing Your Skin

    Wednesday, August 2, 2017, 11:37 AM [General]

    In this Cosmopolitan article Dr. Jegasothy explains to Meirav Devash how scrubbing your skin with a loofah can actually make your skin rough. People often have the understanding that red bumps on the skin can be exfoliated away but as an expert cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Jegasothy says the following:

    “I live in South Florida, where we wear sleeveless shirts and tanks year round. My best friend constantly had small, reddish bumps on the back of her arms. That’s usually keratosis pilaris (KP), which is an excess of keratin, the main protein that makes up hair, nails, and the skin’s outer layer. When keratin clogs the hair follicles, you get KP, which people commonly mistake for rough skin that they think they can exfoliate away with a scrub mitt or loofah mitt or loofah. That’s what my friend was doing, but friction was only making it worse. I told her to apply an over-the-counter steroid cream until the redness subsided, followed by a moisturizer that contains glycolic acid, which will dissolve the excess keratin that’s plugging up pores. Scrubbing won’t do anything but irritate your skin!”

    If you are experiencing redness on your skin, Dr. Jegasothy recommends a steroid cream that can be found at your local pharmacy/drug store and a glycolic acid moisturizer. Follow this expert skincare tip and say bye-bye to chicken skin. To read the whole article click on the link below!


    Dr. Jegasothy discusses with Erin Lukas from InStyle magazine the benefits and how to use the new anti-aging oil. Rosehip oil is great for all skin types and ages making your skin smoother and refreshed. Dr. Jegasothy says rosehip oil helps decrease skin redness and reduces brown spots due to sun damage. Apply rosehip oil as the last step in your skincare routine at night or as the first step in the morning. Read the complete article on this new anti-aging oil by clicking on the link below!

    Dr. Jegasothy Talks with Beauty in the Bag Writer Nancy Weinberg Simon on How to Treat and Prevent Body Acne

    Monday, July 24, 2017, 11:44 AM [General]
    0 (0 Ratings)

    Dr. Jegasothy answers Nancy Weinberg Simon’s questions from Beauty in the Bag blog site about how to get rid of body acne. If you suffer from back, chest, or buttocks acne these tips on how to treat and prevent these unwanted blemishes from appearing on your body is for you! Read below the Q&A from the article:

    “Why do some people get body acne while others don’t?

    Dr. J: People who have a more oily skin type and are prone to facial acne are also more prone to body acne.

    Is body acne different from acne that occurs on the face?

    Dr. J: Body acne, like face acne, occurs when pores are clogged. However, sometimes you get bumps on the body that look like acne, but technically they are folliculitis, which occurs when hair follicles become inflamed and infected.

    What are the top reasons that body acne is more prevalent in the summer months?

    Dr. J: The combination of extra heat, humidity oil and sweat leads to body acne being more prevalent in the summer months. Everything from extra heat, oil, dirt, pore-clogging sunscreens and even hair products running down your back can lead to body breakouts. Tight-fitting clothes that trap heat or rub the skin, causing bacteria to spread, can also lead to breakouts.

    We also tend to exercise more during summer months, particularly with high-intensity exercises like weight training and CrossFit to better sculpt our bodies. This raises cortisol levels, which in turn raises testosterone levels, leading to acne.

    Should acne on the back, butt and chest be treated the same?

    Dr. J: Acne all over the body can be treated the same. Take a shower daily with mild body cleanser containing salicylic acid, like Neutrogena Body Clear Body Wash. After working out, shower and change out of your tight workout attire. If you don’t have time to shower immediately, use a wipe containing salicylic acid, like Stridex pads or Proactiv Clear Zone Body Pads, which actually cuts through the sweat and helps prevent acne.

    What otc products would you recommend to treat it? Please explain why you like these products.

    Dr. J: As mentioned above, I like Neutrogena Body Clear Body Wash, Proactiv Clear Zone Body Pads and Stridex pads. These products contain salicylic acid, which have oil-reducing properties, are easily accessible, and gentle enough for daily use. Pads in particular are small and easy to travel with.

    What can be done in-office to treat body acne?

    Dr. J: In-office treatments include oral antibiotics, oral contraceptives or Aldactone, and fruit-acid peels with salicylic acid and/or citric acid, tartaric acid, malic acid, pyruvic acid and glycolic acid can all be effective in terms of preventing clogging, keeping oil production to a minimum and reducing inflammation.

    What would be a step by step regimen to treat existing body acne and prevent future occurrences?

    Dr. J: The key is to prevent sweat and oil buildup from clogging pores.”

    In this InStyle UK article by Marianne Mychaskiw, Dr. Jegasothy explains how sleeping too much or too little affects your skin. The amount of sleep one should get depends on your age. Dr. Jegasothy suggests 8-9 hours of sleep for teenagers, 7-8 hours for young adults, and 5-7 hours is common for older adults.

    Julia Guerra from Elite Daily quotes Dr. Jegasothy on why it is not good to fall asleep with makeup on. Dr. Jegasothy says a lot of times makeup, especially eye makeup contain formulas that can cause irritation to the skin. Read below Dr. Jegasothy’s recommendations on eye makeup from the article.

    “Many eye shadows contain quartz and mica, which are highly irritating to eyelid skin and can concentrate in the fold, releasing dark particles into the eye for days later.

    This can cause chronic irritation to the corneal surface, and cause chronic dry eye.

    Mascara formula can also crumble and flake into the eye, causing these symptoms as well.”
