    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

    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!
