    Stretch Marks? Don't let them mark your skin!

    Stretch Marks, we all hate them and at the same time most of us have stretch marks we wish we could get rid of.  While there might not be a magical solution for stretch marks there are options to reduce their appearance.

    For many of us stretch marks can be a source of insecurities and can let us become self-conscious about our bodies. During Episode 85: Hair is hair by Fat Mascara a podcast ran by Jessica Maltin and Jennifer Goldstein, they discussed about stretch marks and the best way to treat them.

    Dr. Jegasothy recommends for you to act fast on deciding what type of treatment you want to use to reduce the look of your stretch marks and to act within a four week period since you first notice them.

    One of the recommended treatments is a combination of Fraxel laser and a Pulsed Dye Laser, this will help reduce  the appearance of stretch marks. While lotion can be helpful for some it's not a cure-all case, yet if lotions have been working for you Dr. Jegasothy encourages you to continue using that product.

    Most importantly is to look for options that will help you have beautiful skin and self confidence. Different treatment options are available for stretch marks so it's best to approach a licensed professional to talk more about your options.

    Thank you to Jessica Maltin and Jennifer Goldstein for featuring Dr. Jegasothy!

    Aging skin? Don't let it take you by surprise!

    ANTI AGING BLOG PHOTO.jpg

    Many say that age is just a number and at the Miami Skin Institute we believe age is truly just a number.  Aging can bring a lot of changes to our skin, body, and social life that can be easily avoided.

    You are probably wondering how to start protecting your skin to prevent skin aging. For this Dr. Jegasothy recommends protection from sun exposure and becoming aware of how much time we spend outside. By simply limiting your time under the sun to 15 minutes or less you are already preventing aging. Applying sunscreen can also help, but only for short amounts of time as sweat and incorrect application can make it ineffective.

    These simple steps can make a great difference on the quality of your skin and help you maintain a youthful look. Not only is it important to take care of your skin for cosmetic reasons but also to prevent more severe consequences, such as skin cancer.

    Have You Noticed Your Hair Thinning Or Nails Weakening? Check Out This Tip From Dr. Jegasothy!

    Getting older is great. You have more freedom, opportunities, and life experience. There are some downsides to it though; your hair could begin thinning and your nails could begin weakening, for example.

    There are of course many causes of hair loss that require a consult with a dermatologist, but if you're noticing your hair is thinning or having trouble growing, or your nails are weakening, Dr. Jegasothy recommends Biotin vitamin supplements as a good first step to try.

    Biotin is an important B-Complex Vitamin that helps grow skin and hair, and it also helps improve the quality of the skin. Best of all, it's widely available, so you could pick it up at your local store such as CVS or Walgreens, meaning you could be on your way to fuller hair, better skin, and stronger nails in no time!

    So next time you're buying some toiletries, go ahead and pick up some Biotin. Your hair, skin, and nails will thank you.

    Should You Go To A Facialist? Sure! Just Make Sure To Read This Article First

    Harper's Bazaar February 2018 Cover.jpg

    Dr. Jegasothy has over 20 years experience in Dermatology and has worked with many excellent aestheticians throughout her career, so you can trust her opinions about good skin care!

    In the February issue of Harper's Bazaar, Anne-Marie Guarnieri asked Dr. Jegasothy about getting facials with an aesthetician. Dr. J's answer? She thinks facials are great, but make sure to go to an experienced aesthetician who will know how to treat your skin. An even better choice would be to go to an aesthetician working under a board-certified dermatologist, as they'll have the best knowledge in the biz.

    So go ahead and go get a facial if you want! Just make sure to do your research first.

    Why You Should Always Choose A Board-Certified Cosmetic Dermatologist

    Wednesday, February 14, 2018, 7:11 PM [General]

    Cosmopolitan February 2018 Cover.png

    The aesthetic dermatology market is growing larger year after year, with more and more people wanting cosmetic procedures. With this rise in popularity also comes a rise in people looking for discounts and deals, which has lead to in increase in both inauthentic cosmetic "doctors" and counterfeit "botox" and fillers on the market.

    These products can come from various places - they can come from outside the country, where they aren't as tightly regulated, or they could be made in someone's garage! As Dr. Jegasothy tells Jolene Edgar in the February issue of Cosmopolitan Magazine, due to lack of quality and safety control with these products, 1 in 4 bargain hunters suffers some kind of complication, whether it be infection, irritation, actual long-term swelling or large nodules, or something more.

    How can you reduce your chances of receiving these products and possibly having a complication?  Always see a board-certified aesthetic dermatologist such as Dr. Jegasothy. They have the knowledge of skin anatomy and the authentic products necessary to minimize these risks. Going somewhere else, such as a not properly supervised med-spa, could result in having an inexperienced injector inject the product into your face. Even worse, they could be engaging in unscrupulous practices, such as splitting filler between patients. "Recapped filler could separate over time, which could possibly cause lumps at the injection site," Dr. Jegasothy says.

    A board-certified doctor may not offer the deals that a med-spa would, but they have the rigorous training and high standards that come from years of schooling. The long-term peace of mind of placing your trust in their hands should more than make up for any short term savings.

    New Year, New Body, New You, Nonsurgically!

    Walking into a doctor's office, getting body work done, and walking out without a scar or overnight stay may sound like a scene from a futuristic sci-fi movie, but it's actually a reality now!

    More and more doctors are offering non-surgical body work with lasers, and Dr. Jegasothy has been at the forefront of this wave. Loren Savini with Allure Magazine sought Dr. Jegasothy's expertise and asked which laser she liked. One of them is the Ulthera®, an ultrasound laser. Dr. Jegasothy says, "Typically, it’s used on the area under the chin to lift the neck and jawline, (think double chin reduction), but I've found that devices like Ulthera can give patients a 10 to 20 percent butt or breast lift, with no downtime or scarring, in 20 minutes." That's not all it can do. With protocols that Dr. Jegasothy herself has developed, she can perform nonsurgical arm lifts, thigh lifts, and even face lifts!

    If you've been wanting to have some body work done, but have been wary of going under the knife, give us a call at 305-569-0067 and schedule a consultation. The future, and the future you, is even closer than you think.

    You Are NOT The Only One Struggling With Skin Problems!

    Self - Chrissy Teigen.jpgGrowing up, you pretty much idolized celebrities. From their perfect skin, luscious hair, fast cars, stunning houses, you wish you could trade places with them, right? It is not until later in life that you realize, maybe celebrities are just like you, in more ways than you could have imagined?

    Take for example one of our favorites, Chrissy Teigen. Pretty much every woman loves her outspoken personality and cannot wait to see what she will tweet about next that will make the Twitter world shiver. Not long ago, Chrissy took to Twitter and spoke about every woman's worst time of the month. Not only do you get horrible cramps but acne comes along and absolutely ruins your life. Thankfully, Dr. Jegasothy has the information you need on how to treat your menstrual acne.

    She states that during your cycle, it is common to suffer from hormonal acne. Even post menopausal women are vulnerable, due to the fact that these women still undergo cyclical changes in their progesterone and estrogen levels.

    For frustrating skin during your cycle, Dr. Jegasothy recommends using exfoliating cleansers which contain either salicylic or glycolic acid. Retinoids that avert clogged pores as well as birth control pills can be great for regulating your hormone levels.

    Is Your Skin Getting Dull During The Winter Months

    Winter scene.jpg

    If you have ever experienced dry skin you know how uncomfortable it can be, especially during the winter months. What if we were to tell you the secret to beautiful skin during the winter lies in a special type of moisturizer: night cream!

    What's so special about night cream? Shouldn't your moisturizer do the job during the winter months? In this Verily Mag article by Charisse Kenion, Dr. Jegasothy gives the real reason why night cream is so important for your skin care routine.

    Dr. Jegasothy states that indoor heating during winter may cause your skin to dehydrate. Since an easy skincare routine is a must for busy women on-the-go, Dr. Jegasothy mentions two different types of cream you could use that will easily help you keep your skin hydrated. The first group, she states, is very rich and seizes tremendous atmospheric moisture as well as holds in the skin's natural moisture. The second group contains an abundance of rich ingredients and incorporates strong skin care smoothing molecules such as Retinol.

    To see what products Dr. Jegasothy recommends for the cold winter months click the link below.
