By: Dr. Corey Hartman, Skin Wellness Dermatology Though I feel most people have gotten to the point where they know Botox® isn’t going to injure or harm them, patients do still ask about the long-term risks of doing Botox on a regular basis. Is it going to be safe for me to start this? Am I going to be able to continue doing it? Are there any long-term risks of putting this into my body on a regular basis?  These are the types of questions I typically get from patients looking to start Botox and keep up with it. I understand their hesitation, and it’s definitely something to think about… read more

Here’s the truth about cystic acne and how you can finally get rid of it

By: Dr. Corey Hartman, Skin Wellness Dermatology Cystic acne is definitely the most severe form of subcutaneous acne that contributes to significant scarring. So when people talk about acne scars with the textural changes, like ice pick scars or rolling scars, this is the type of acne they typically have.  Unfortunately, treating these types of acne scars can be hard. Improving their appearance can only be done using invasive, expensive, and often uncomfortable procedures like laser resurfacing.  If you’re suffering from cystic acne, this is why I strongly encourage you to find a treatment that works for you as soon as possible. You definitely want to prevent or minimize the… read more

How to get rid of chest wrinkles – depending on your budget

Cosmetic Procedures, News, Articles, Skin Care & Protection

By: Dr. Corey Hartman, Skin Wellness Dermatology While the main focus of the majority of my patients is their face, eventually, they’re going to start noticing wrinkles on the chest. As we get older, the skin on our chest is going to show our age just like another part of the body, if not more so.  Then once they start to notice their chest, the main reason it bothers patients is the color and the fact that it starts to get kind of saggy. This is why getting rid of chest wrinkles really involves improving both the texture as well as the color that starts to change along with it. … read more

By: Dr. Corey Hartman, Skin Wellness Dermatology We all have our favorite influencers on Instagram. Whether they seem to live a lavishly fun lifestyle or be “in the know” on certain products or brands, we like to keep up with them and what they’re into. You like their fashion sense – so you shop the same brands. You like their hair styles – so maybe you try them out on your own hair. One thing you should not do? Automatically use the same skincare products. Listen, just because it works for one person doesn’t mean it’s going to work for you. Ever been let down after a visit to Ulta,… read more

By: Dr. Corey Hartman, Skin Wellness Dermatology It’s so funny to me. Volumizing and filling the lips has been the “new thing” even with the masks ordinances. But maybe because of the masks, it’s a good time to get it done? I don’t know.  Either way, I’m excited to say that we now have a new product available called Restylane Kysse that does a really great job at enhancing the contour and defining the border of the lips. Sure, we’ve had lip fillers available such as Vollure from Allergan, but now we have something from Galderma (the makers of Restylane) that can also get a good result.  There are a… read more

By: Dr. Corey Hartman, Skin Wellness Dermatology Do I think most men want to take care of their skin?  Of course I do. I think some men are just a little embarrassed to show they care while others are afraid we’re going to give them too much to do.  But this is why I believe simplicity is the most important aspect of a good men’s skincare regimen! I think most guys just don’t know how easy it can be and what the possibilities really are.  And just for the record, there’s nothing wrong with caring about your skin no matter who you are.
