Acne, at any age, is a nuisance. But, for young people, especially teenagers and those in their early 20’s, the physical manifestations that accompany acne can be a real, psychological burden in social settings. For those suffering from acne, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) photofacial technology is a viable solution. IPL is a photo-rejuvenation technology that uses light or laser light to treat acne and other skin conditions. How does it work?

While there are plenty of advantages to getting older, no one really likes to look old, do they? If you would like to look younger and more vital, ultrasonic technology offers you a solution like no other. Ultrasonic skin tightening is a revolutionary, non-surgical, face and neck treatment that employs ultrasound technology to lift, tighten, and tone loose and sagging skin and restore its youthful suppleness without any recovery time. And, what's great about this procedure is you'll be able to return to your normal, daily activities immediately, without doing anything else.

Liposonix is a non-surgical, "body contouring" procedure done at our NYC office. It is designed to sculpt the midriff-area using high-intensity ultrasound waves. Liposonix directs focused ultrasound (HIFU) energy to the treatment area, causing a rapid local temperature rise, permanently destroying targeted adipose tissue (fat) just beneath the without damaging the surrounding tissue. Results are typically seen in 8 to 12 weeks during which time the body processes the adipose tissues. Visit http://berkowitzderm.com/liposonix-nyc for more information.

Ulthera is a facial tightening treatment offered by the New York offices of Berkowitz Dermatology. It is a non-surgical, non-invasive skin tightening procedure that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin. The FDA-cleared device utilizes the energy of ultrasound to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the facial and neck skin—the collagen and elastin network. Over a 2-3 month post-treatment period, skin becomes firmer and tighter. Visit http://berkowitzderm.com/ulthera-skin-tightening for more information.

Ultrasound technology has been used in the medical field for years. It is likely that you are familiar with ultrasound because it is regularly used during pregnancy to get a good look at the unborn child. It is also used for many other purposes, including for the tightening the skin.

Soft, supple, sensual – lips. Shapes, tones and lipstick colors may change, but these timeless qualities will always be desirable for lips. Over time, lips, which can be quite fragile, can suffer from exposure to the elements, which can be especially harsh in drier or colder climes.  Also in the course of the natural aging process, lips become thinner and begin to lose their definition, especially around the Cupid’s bow or upper lip.

A Very Interesting Read.
A new dermatology study has found that patients with atopic dermatitis are especially vulnerable to allergic reactions to some preservatives in skincare products.

The study published in the January addition of the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology reviewed patch test results of 2453 patients. Of these patients, 342 had eczema.

Patients with eczema were more likely to have allergic reactions to several cosmetic preservatives called 'formaldehyde releasers' than people without eczema. Compared with nonatopic patients, patients with atopic dermatitis were statistically more likely to have positive patch tests. Atopic Dermatitis was associated with contact hypersensitivity to quaternium-15, imidazolidinyl urea, DMDM hydantoin, and 2-bromo-2-nitropropane-1,3-diol but not to parabens, formaldehyde, or diazolidinyl urea.

It is unclear what makes the "formaldehyde releasers" problematic, the authors write. It could be that those products are more commonly used so people with eczema have more exposure to them, and more opportunity to develop a reaction.
