You’ve probably heard that what you eat is just as important to your skin care as how you cleanse and exfoliate. While this may be true on some levels, the idea that specific foods such as chocolate or fried items will cause an immediate breakout is not exactly true.
Check out this video from DermTV to hear a real dermatologist dispel this myth once and for all. Be aware, however, that proper nutrition and adequate hydration is important for healthy skin, whether or not it has anything to do with breakouts.

Like many people, you’re likely interested in skin care not just because you want healthy skin, but because you want healthy skin that looks young and radiant. Over time, the signs of aging will start to appear on your face. Fortunately, your dermatologist has a variety of options, including injectable cosmetic treatments, to help restore vitality to your appearance. One treatment that stands apart from the others is called Sculptra. You might want to consider Sculptra because:
Sculptra works differently than other treatments
While Botox works by paralyzing wrinkle-causing muscles, and most fillers work by plumping up areas where wrinkles exist, Sculptra works by actually rebuilding the collagen in your face. Since collagen is the basis of any young-looking skin, anything that restores lost collagen will have marked benefits for wrinkle reduction and a youthful appearance.
Sculptra creates a subtle, natural improvement to your appearance
While there are many excellent injectable products that produce natural results, most of them are noticeable immediately or very shortly after your procedure. This can make it a bit more obvious that you’ve had something done. Sculptra works gradually over the course of several months of treatment to restore your appearance in a way that everyone will notice without assuming that you’ve had cosmetic injections.
Sculptra provides long-lasting results
In clinical trials, the effects from Sculptra treatments lasted at least 24 months in most patients. That means that after your last injection, you don’t have to see your dermatologist for at least two years—at least not for cosmetic injections. In the meantime, you may want to enhance your results with laser treatments or other skin care treatment options.

I was diagnosed with basal cell skin cancer in 3 areas (arm, chest, and back). Everyone in the practice has been wonderful! They explained everything thoroughly and scheduled the removal procedure promptly. On the day of surgery, Dr Abramova and Jennifer were so compassionate. I highly recommend DANV to anyone in need of dermatological...
