By: Dr. Corey Hartman, Skin Wellness Dermatology

Whether you’re 13 or 30, dealing with acne can be extremely frustrating and even take a toll on your confidence and self-esteem. No wonder most people would do almost anything to get rid of it once and for all. 

While some try the “miracle cures” they find on social media, others give up chocolate out of desperation for clear skin. But believe it or not, there are actually better ways to clear up acne fast. 

Acne: From the causes to best ways to clear it up fast

If you suffer from acne, you probably want to know two things: why do you have it and how can you get rid of it as quickly as possible. Fortunately, I have some answers for you. 

First off, what really causes acne?

You’ve likely researched this before, and I always tell patients, if there are a million answers out there, that’s because nobody knows.

The truth is, there are a lot of different things that go …

Dermatologist or independent consultant: Who do you trust with your skincare?

By: Dr. Corey Hartman, Skin Wellness Center

When it comes to whether you should buy your skincare products from an independent consultant or a dermatologist, there are a few factors you should probably take into consideration. While an independent consultant may very well want the best for your skin, the fact is, they don’t always have the extensive training and experience of a board-certified dermatologist. 

Four questions to ask yourself before buying skincare products from an independent consultant

When an independent consultant approaches you, be sure to ask yourself these four questions before putting your skincare needs in their hands.

Does my consultant really want to help me reach my skincare goals? 

Many independent consultants work to recruit people to their team: people that don’t have any expertise. You want to make sure they’re not just trying to sell you a product, but truly motivated to help you figure out what’s best for your skin. 

These products are developed by doctors, but are they really as good as those dispensed at …

Facebook Live Lunch and Learn From Your Desk: Picosure Collagen Stimulation

Join us for our monthly aesthetic Facebook Live as Dr. Hartman uses our Picosure for collagen stimulation.

Dr. Hartman will explain why the real culprit of aging is collagen loss and show you one of the many tools we have here at Skin Wellness, our Picosure laser, to stimulate collagen and tighten the skin on your face to give a more youthful look.

Recent discoveries have begun to reveal the secret language of the body and how cells talk to each other to keep us healthy. Known as cell signaling, this biological communication occurs when cells are injured and release proteins, which are then detected by surrounding cells to trigger a healing response.

PicoSure’s PressureWave™ technology uses a unique wavelength of light (755nm) and a specialized lens to convert laser energy into gentle pressure. This pressure squeezes cells, activating the natural cell signaling processes that create new collagen and elastin without burning or damaging the skin.

Tune in and watch the procedure performed live and ask any questions you may have about the Picosure laser.
