Cascade Dermatology and Aesthetic

6 Signs to see a Dermatologist

Six reasons it’s time to visit a dermatologist 👨‍⚕️🥼 And don’t forget about an annual full-body skin exam!

  1. The skin is irritated and appears to have a rash or hives.
  2. A mole or freckle has changed. Specifically – size has increased, color has darkened or shape has changed. Also be aware of new moles and freckles appearing on the body.
  3. There has been an increase in hair loss. On average, people lose between 50-100 hairs per day, but if you notice an increased amount OR feel that your hair has thinned, it is time to visit a dermatologist.
  4. You are experiencing severe acne that is constant and not going away. While our medical spa has many treatments and products to help clear the skin, for more severe instances, it is best to visit a dermatologist.
  5. You notice a fungal infection in nails or feet. (Ex: Athlete’s Foot.)
  6. The face is persistently red and flushed, without an explanation.

Sculptra Aesthetic

Sculptra Aesthetics is a FDA-approved injectable subtly and gradually over time helps restore facial volume. This product is truly one of a kind and we’re so excited to now be offering it.

Sculptra helps activate the skin’s natural regenerative process and replenish lost collagen, a common protein that supports cells and tissue. With age, the skin’s natural collagen supply decreases, causing wrinkles and facial aging

HydraFacial Keravive

Let’s talk about our new treatment, HydraFacial Keravive.

Poor scalp health – dry skin, clogged follicles, dead skin cells, lack of circulation – can lead to thinner looking hair. Keravive is a first of its kind 3-step treatment that promotes a healthy scalp and fuller-looking hair.

HydraFacial Vortex Technology extracts dirt, oil, and impurities from the scalp and hair follicles. Keravive Peptide Complex exfoliates the scalp and nourishes hair follicles with growth factors. Daily use of the Keravive Peptide Complex Spray enhances the treatment by delivering daily nourishment and hydration to the scalp and hair follicles.

*Photos show two patients before treatment and at month 4, following 3 consecutive monthly Keravivr treatments and 90-day continuous use of HydraFacial take home spray.

Let’s talk about 11’s

Glabella lines, commonly referred to as 11’s, are vertical lines that appear between your brows and result from muscle contractions. When you concentrate, squint, or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. 

These lines are considered “dynamic” because they appear when the brow furrows. But as time goes on, with repeated movement, they become deeper and more permanent. These lines can also worsen with sunlight (Squinting! and not wearing sunscreen), smoking, and exposure to pollution.

To soften and reduce the appearance of 11’s, a common treatment is injections with Botox or Dysport. These neurotoxins temporarily paralyze the muscle activity in that area so the skin cannot furrow or fold. With regular injections, about every 3 to 4 months, the lines will continue to relax and become less noticeable.
