Join the Sunscreen Scene

Sunscreen helps to protect your skin from sunburn, early skin aging and skin cancer. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends everyone use sunscreen offering Broad-spectrum protection (protects against UVA and UVB rays), an SPF 30 or higher and with water resistance. When dealing with reapplic­ation, the FDA requirement for label directions is to reapply every two hours and immediately after swimming or sweating. However, everyone should be aware that redness is not a sign to reapply sunscreen, but rather to to get out of the sun. If the skin is red at the time of reapplying, this is a sign your skin is already burning. In addition to wearing sunscreen, dermatologists recommend taking the following steps to protect your skin and find skin cancer early:
Seek shade
– One shot glass amount (1oz) of sunscreen will cover your entire body
Wear protective clothing
– Use extra caution near water, snow and sand
Get vitamin D safely through a healthy diet
Avoid tanning beds
– Check your birthday suit on your birthday with a board-certified CCSD provider!

An Insider’s Point of View | Latisse


…Miracle in a bottle.

I have been using Latisse for four years and my eyelashes have completely transformed from average to fabulous with only one thing…Latisse. I often get asked if I have fake lashes on or eyelash extensions. I have tried the fake lashes but I’ve never been very good at applying them and so half way through my evening, they are usually falling out and can make for an embarrassing situation! My secret is Latisse. And it’s less time consuming and overall less expensive than the alternatives. My lashes look great with mascara but I can even go without mascara now. They have made my lashes not only longer, but also fuller and darker.


And it’s very easy to use. Just apply directly to the skin of the upper eyelid margin and the base of the eyelashes (like using eyeliner) every night. It takes about four weeks for you to notice the effects but being patient is well worth it! Latisse is a prescription and can be purchased through our office. Give us a call and make a wish on your new eyelashes!
