On my social media channels, you guys asked about the safety of chemicals in sunscreen, why certain sunscreens make you look like a ghost, what’s the best type of sunscreen for kids, and how often you should reapply!

In this video, I will answer your questions and more!

To start, I explain the difference between chemical blockers and physical or mineral blockers.

Next, I share which sunscreen choices I make for myself and for my 5 year old daughter who is a fair skinned redhead and therefore, burns easily. As a dermatologist mom, I want to give my daughter the most safe and effective options for sun protection and I love sharing this information with you and your family!

Finally, I share my five key tips about sun protection.

Xoxo,

I love to be on the pulse of technology both for in-office and at-home use! When a product works well, I want you to know about it. I also look for opportunities to provide cost efficient – but also EFFECTIVE – product recommendations.

My patients and I have been impressed with at-home results from an FDA cleared, hand-held, anti-aging device called the “Truth Vitality Lux Renew.” The device costs $279.

Here’s how it works:

The device combines ultrasound technology with red and blue LED light therapy.

Ultrasound: improves the skin’s elasticity and firmness. There are five settings on this particular device.

Red LED Light: Smooths wrinkles, helps the body to generate new collagen, helps reduce the appearance of rosacea and broken veins.

Blue LED Light: Destroy acne-causing bacteria.

How to use it:

You apply a serum first.

Then, you set the timer for a full 19 minute-session or for a 4 minute per treatment session.

You use it 3-5 times per week on your target area (for example, “angry 11s” on your forehead or “marionette lines” around your mouth).

The clinical trial results for this device are excellent! After twelve weeks of use, 60 participants experienced the following:

100% showed improvement in skin firmness

89.7% showed improvement in overall appearance of the skin

86.2% showed improvement in facial lines and wrinkles

79.3% showed improvement in forehead lines, wrinkles, and radiance.

My recommendation:

If you are needle-phobic or not quite ready to take the plunge for injections, this is a great option! I also recommend it to my patients for use in between our appointments to maximize their results from in-office procedures! It can complement procedures for tightening (Ultherapy, Thermage), redness (V-beam) or acne (Peels and Theraclear), allowing you to get more out of each treatment and extending the results so you can space those treatments farther apart. For a cost-saving option, this is one of the better products I’ve tested!
