Musician Seal has been entertaining audiences since the early ’90s with hits such as “Crazy” and “Kiss from a Rose,” but what the singer may be most well known for is the marks on his face. Those marks are a result of a skin condition known as discoid lupus erythematosus. This is where the body’s immune system attacks healthy tissue leading to long term inflammation causing sores. Generally affecting the skin above the neck, the sores can leave deep scarring.
Although no one knows exactly what causes the condition, there are ways to effectively manage it. Cortisone ointment and injections directed at the sores can help reduce the scarring associated with the condition. If you believe you may be suffering from discoid lupus erythematosus contact our office immediately.
After watching the Oscars last night, it may seem like celebrity skin is the epitome of perfection, but don’t be fooled, they struggle with the same issues that everyone else does. Whether it’s acne or wrinkles, they are always looking for the latest trends or products to keep their skin looking fantastic.
Actress Jennifer Garner is no different. Her secret to keeping her blemishes at bay is the Clarisonic Skin Cleansing System. It improves skin tone, reduces the appearance of pore size, and helps other skin care products work that much better. The Clarisonic Skin Cleansing System utilizes a patented sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per second to clean, soften, and smooth the skin. In just a minute, it removes six times more makeup and twice as much dirt and oil than cleansing with just your hands.
Jennifer has reaped the benefits from using Clarisonic, you should too! Call our office today to get yours!
With the huge success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), many people have become familiar with some of the franchise’s most popular superheroes. Between Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, and the Hulk, the superheroes have captivated moviegoers throughout the globe for the past ten years. With an incredible display of strength and power, the Hulk may be the one character that stands out the most.
Characterized as a large mutant monster with green skin, the Hulk developed his appearance from an exposure to gamma radiation. Although the concept of becoming a large mutant monster may not be feasible in real life, it is in fact possible for the color of skin to turn (or appear) green.
Some ways that skin can do that include:
• Exposure to strong chlorine levels in water.
• During the process of bruising there is a stage where the iron in the blood turns green and can become visible through the skin.
• Patients experiencing multiple organ failure may be at risk for unusual pigmentation effects from feeding tube dyes.
• Condition known as gangrene can cause the skin to appear green prior to turning black.
If you notice your skin pigment changing consult your doctor immediately, as it may be a sign of a more serious medical condition.
Did you know that melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer? Although it is less common than other forms of skin cancer it can spread quickly and develop anywhere on the skin. The disease is caused from overexposure to sun or ultraviolet radiation, especially within people that have fair skin.
There are five major signs/symptoms to look for when determining if you may have some form of Melanoma. These are known as the ABCDE’s of Melanoma and they include:
A-Asymmetry: Early forms of melanoma are asymmetrical, meaning that you cannot draw a line down the middle and have equal parts on each side.
B-Borders: Uneven borders with irregularities or blurs.
C-Color: Varying shades of brown, blue or black.
D-Diameter (size): Melanoma tend to be larger than normal moles, ones the size of a pencil eraser are something that you should look at closely.
E-Evolving: Any changes in the size, shape, color, or feel.
If you are unsure if any of these signs pertain to you or notice that some might, do not hesitate to set up an appointment immediately at the Neiman Dermatology Building.
