Skin Care Advice:
“Be consistent and committed when you use the Obagi system. It takes time to see results, but don’t get frustrated. You WILL see results!”

Obagi:
“Tell us about your Obagi experience. How were you introduced and how has your skin transformed?”

Mandy Rose:
“I was first introduced to Obagi products by my dermatologist after I developed terrible melasma with my pregnancy. I wanted the brown spots to disappear and nothing I was doing worked. As a woman, you know how important it is that your skin is clear and radiant. The Obagi Nu-Derm System is the ONLY thing I found that would completely take away the melasma. Although I started the Obagi System because of my melasma, I was pleased to see that my sun spots and scars from where I had picked when I was younger had diminished as well.

I was so self-conscious of my skin before and never wanted to leave my house without makeup. After using Obagi, I have a new found confidence about my skin that I have never had before. It has been an exciting transformation to see how the overall balance and color of my skin tone has evened out! Thank you Obagi!”

Obagi:
“Did you get discouraged throughout the process and how did you overcome it?”

Mandy Rose:
“I do remember when I first started using Obagi and I wasn’t seeing a change immediately…I got discouraged. But I just kept using it every morning and every night and eventually my skin went through a complete transformation! Looking back at my before pictures…it truly is amazing to see how much Obagi has helped my skin!”

Restylane® Silk

How does Restylane Silk work?

Just like the other members of the Restylane family, Restylane Silk is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid — a sugar that is naturally present in your skin.

What makes Restylane Silk different from other Restylane products?

Like other areas of the face, the lips and skin surrounding the mouth show signs of aging as an individual gets older. This often results in lip thinning, lost shape and an increase in vertical lines above the lip.

Restylane Silk is designed specifically to provide natural-looking results in these areas. That’s why it’s made of smaller, smoother particles than those used in other Restylane products.

Why does skin age?

Why is young skin so supple and full? In part because of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps provide fullness and elasticity.

There are many factors that contribute to skin aging, one of which is a loss of hyaluronic acid. As a result, your skin can begin to develop wrinkles and folds. The good news is you can do something about it. Find out how Dr Ly can help you use the Restylane family of products to reveal a younger-looking you.

Nina-480

The Restylane family of products includes Restylane, Restylane-L® and Restylane® Silk. These products can be used individually to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Dr. Ly can advise you which product or combination of products is right for you. Please call 808-877-6526 to make your appointment NOW!

More Doctors Need to Learn to Spot Skin Cancers

Resident physicians should be taught to screen for suspicious lesions, researchers say

MONDAY, Oct. 19 (HealthDay News) — Too few resident physicians have been trained in skin cancer examinations or watched or practiced the procedure, U.S. researchers report.

In a survey of 342 resident physicians in family medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics and internal medicine, researchers collected information on the participants’ training and experience with skin cancer exams as well as their level of skill in performing the exams.

"Clinical training for the skin cancer examination during residency was infrequent," wrote Dr. Emily Wise, of the Boston University School of Medicine, and colleagues. "During residency, 75.8 percent were never trained in the skin cancer examination, 55.3 percent never observed a skin cancer examination and 57.4 percent never practiced the examination. Only 15.9 percent of residents reported being skilled in the skin cancer examination."

Do you have unsightly leg veins that prevent you from wearing a skirt? Too hot to wear pants, but embarrassed to wear shorts? Do you have achy, throbbing, swollen and cramping legs? Do you have leg ulcers? You may have undiagnosed varicose vein. An estimated 25 million people in the United States suffer from varicose veins. Today, thanks to modern technology, there is an alternative treatment option to traditional surgical vein stripping.

Kahului Maui Dermatologist Mr. Micki Ly reports that she and her clients have embraced this exciting and effective new treatment that includes stat-of-the-art closure technology—and the results are superior. The patented technology uses a very small catheter and radio frequency energy to close down the ugly vein with only a small nick in the skin on the leg under local anesthesia. Clients enjoy quick and effortless relief of their varicose vein symptoms, without the associated drawbacks of vein stripping (an invasive surgical procedure) general anesthesia, post-operative pain, bruising and prolonged recovery.
