TOP 10 TIPS to Winterize & Revitalize Your Skin

Seasonal weather changes can be unforgiving to our skin. During the winter months, our skin is exposed to the outdoor elements of wind, cold air, lower humidity, and indoor blasts of dry heat. Through the process of transepidermal water loss, water passes through the outer layer of our skin and evaporates into the air. If left unmanaged, it leads to dull, dry, irritated skin and more prominent fine lines! Damaged skin also increases the likelihood of conditions such as acne, rosacea, eczema, and psoriasis. There are several steps that we can take as the weather gets colder and dryer to keep our skin hydrated and radiant! Physician Assistant Stephanie Bui-Catuogno at Tru-Skin Dermatology shares her top 10 tips to protect your skin. MOISTURIZE WITH SPF Even though we can’t feel the warmth of the sun, it doesn’t mean that your skin isn’t exposed to harmful UV rays. Sun can also [...]

Are Chemical Peels Safe for My Skin?

Are Chemical Peels Safe for My Skin? Chemical Peels in Central Texas Chemical peels are performed by applying a chemical solution to the skin to remove the top layers and encourage new, younger looking skin to regenerate.

Hair Loss: Causes & Treatment Options

Hair Loss: Causes & Treatment Options How Can I Treat and Prevent Hair Loss? Hereditary hair loss is incredibly popular among men and women. It can affect body hair as well as hair just on your scalp. Also known as alopecia, hair loss is more prevalent in older adults, although it can occur in children as well.

Most people notice more hair in the drain after washing their hair or larger clumps of hair in their brush. Others note thinning patches or balding patches on their head in the mirror. If you have noticed that you are losing hair faster than usual, you may benefit from hair loss treatment.
