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.

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 Many times, patients come into my office more than ready to do something about the signs of aging they’re starting to see in the mirror. They’ve seen the commercials and even had friends tell them about their latest Botox® treatment, or the fillers they just got from their favorite dermatologist.  While many patients know that Botox or fillers may likely be the effective treatment they’re looking for, they don’t always understand the real differences between the two.  That’s why I want to lay it out as plain and simple as I can.

Forever Young BBL Skin Treatments

Written by Dr. Corey Hartman: As we learn more about prevention and maintenance in anti-aging skin care, few treatments have demonstrated an ability to help us find the fountain of youth and not merely correct a problem that has already developed.  Aside from Botox, which not only relaxes muscles to prevents wrinkle formation but also stimulates collagen production, the other treatment that serves as both preventative and corrective is Broad Band Light or BBL.
