    Stretch Marks: To Tattoo or Not to Tattoo?

    Stretch marks show no mercy. They are highly common and do not discriminate. Some may be proud and call them their tiger stripes, while others want to hide them away.

    This skin issue is notoriously difficult to treat. Refinery29's Erika Stalder introduces Brazilian tattoo artist, Rudolph Torres. He fills your stretch marks with ink to make stretch marks blend in to your regular skin tone.

    If you are interested in this method, top Miami aesthetic dermatologist Dr. Jegasothy shares some valuable insight with Erika Stalder: it is a legitimate procedure, however the execution must be done right. It is crucial to inspect your proposed tattoo artist and make certain of experience and ownership of a myriad of ink colors to match your skin tone. Even then, due to the nature of skin, you will not be able to see how well the stretch marks are hidden until long after the appointment ended, after the ink has a chance to settle. This could take four to five weeks for the ink to set into the skin. Until it does this, you can not be sure of the color match.

    At Miami Skin Institute, Dr. Jegasothy can deliver more confident results by erasing your stretch marks with the Fraxel laser. It is a quick and safe procedure that creates microscopic wells in skin where new collagen will form to resurface the skin.

    Facing the Facts on Face Oils

    Slathering oil onto your already oily skin may sound like the complete wrong thing to do, but it actually can help! In this Women's Health Magazine article by Grace Gold, Dr. Jegasothy gave all the juicy tidbits about face oils.

    "Oil-free" products used to be the standard prescription for shiny skin types, but today's face oils have come a long way in formulation sophistication, says Dr. Jegasothy, "In fact, many of the large drugstore companies have formulated oils that both serve a purpose and even feel good on oily skin,"

    But don't think you can just put olive oil on your skin and call it a day. You should use an oil that has antioxidants in it, like rosehip or grapeseed oil. And it should never feel greasy. It should be light. silky, and evaporate immediately.  Avoid mineral, stearate, and wheat germ oil. These oils can clog pores and cause pimples.

    Trust Dr. J on this. She has oily skin herself!

    Allure October 2017 Cover.jpg

    If you've suffered from acne breakouts, you know how miserable it can be to use a product and not have it work. Thankfully, a not-so-new product may be the best solution for you!

    In Allure's October issue, Dr, Jegasothy was quoted by Jessica Chia in article about Spironolactone, the treatment you may have never tried. Originally used for blood pressure, this medication has been prescribed for over 10 years to treat acne, and it may be a safer alternative to Accutane for some patients. And like Dr. Jegasothy says in the article, there are virtually no risks for anyone who is female, healthy, and not pregnant!

    As with all medications, make sure to schedule an appointment with your dermatologist before using this to treat your acne.

    What to do Before and After Flying to Keep Skin Healthy

    tips for flight.jpg

    We’ve told you before how flying can be damaging for your skin and how to combat the negative effects during flight. This time, Dr. Jegasothy has some tips on preemptive and post care for flights.

    In this Reader’s Digest article by Alexis Farah, Dr. Jegasothy gave the key tip on what you can do before a flight to prevent breakouts: get a chemical peel. A cleansing and extracting peel before a flight will remove any debris on your face, reducing the amount during flight and resulting in less chance for inflammation aka less acne!

    After the flight, get a Fraxel® treatment. This will open the skin’s micro-channels which allows more hydration and anti-redness products, like vitamin-c, to penetrate the skin. A Fraxel® treatment will help the 1 week adjustment period your skin has after flying.
