Tags: Acne Treatment  

Frustrating, isn't it? According to the American Academy of Dermatology, acne plagues about 50 million Americans, 15 percent of which are adults just like you. What are your treatment options? Dermatologist, Dr. Jeffrey Heller, offers many at his Daytona Beach and Port Orange, FL, offices. He can help you have clearer, healthier skin.

What is acne?

Acne is a skin condition consisting of blemishes called comedones, papules and pustules. Appearing primarily on the face, neck, chest, shoulders, and thighs, acne pimples are reddened, sore, unsightly and frankly, emotionally distressing.

How do acne blemishes form? They erupt around the sebaceous glands associated with the hair follicles in our skin. These glands secrete oily sebum which clogs pores, causing characteristic whiteheads and blackheads. Some acne pimples are larger and red. Known as papules, pustules, and acne cysts, they can grow infected and lead to scarring.

Who gets acne?

While people are most prone to develop acne outbreaks in their teens, anyone can have an acne flare-up. Some precipitating factors include:

  • Pregnancy, puberty, and menopause, along with their characteristic hormonal fluctuations
  • Times of stress
  • Poor skin hygiene
  • Fatty foods and a generally poor diet
  • Heredity (acne seems to run in families)

Additionally, acne worsens and infects when people squeeze their blemishes or scrub their faces too hard, ironically in an effort trying to prevent or get rid of acne.

Treating acne

Many over the counter scrubs, creams, and ointments help reduce mild acne outbreaks. However, persistent acne requires a care plan from your dermatologist in Daytona Beach and Port Orange, FL. Patience and persistence in managing acne is key to clearer skin.

After a visual inspection of your acne at his office, Dr. Heller may recommend a combination of many kinds of treatment modalities. Some are just plain common sense, but others involve medical interventions, depending on your specific case.

Acne treatment may include:

  • Antibiotic and hormone therapy
  • Benzoyl peroxide and Tretinoin (Vitamin A) topical medications
  • In-office extraction
  • Daily, gentle washing
  • Blue light photodynamic therapy (PDT)

Dr. Heller uses PDT to safely reduce the size and productivity of the sebaceous, or oil, glands in the skin. Severe acne seems to respond well to this blue light treatment and helps prevent scarring. PDT may be combined with other medical or cosmetic dermatology treatments for maximum therapeutic effect.

Feel good and look great

Clear skin boosts your mood and self-confidence. If you are struggling with acne, get the help you need from the dermatologist who helps scores of people in the Daytona Beach and Port Orange, FL, area.

What your skin doctor in Port Orange and Daytona Beach, FL wants you to know

Dermatologist Rash TreatmentIf you have a rash, you are not alone. In fact, rashes are one of the most common skin problems because they can be caused by exposure to so many everyday substances. The good news is a rash is usually easy to treat. Dr. Jeffrey Heller at Heller Dermatology Center wants to help you get relief from an annoying rash. He has two office locations in Daytona Beach and Port Orange, Florida to help with your skincare needs.

If you have allergies, they can often show up as a rash and can cover large areas of your body. They can look like red, swollen bumps, or diffuse, spreading rashes. They can be caused by exposure to plants like poison ivy, pet dander, foods, and other substances. Typically, rashes due to allergies will itch due to the release of histamine. To reduce the itch, you can try taking over-the-counter antihistamines and topical cortisone cream.

Rashes can also be caused by skin inflammation due to chemicals and other substances. A rash of this type is known as dermatitis. There are a few types of dermatitis including contact dermatitis, which appears as a dry, non-itchy rash and atopic dermatitis, which is also known as eczema. The cause of dermatitis may not be immediately evident, so it’s best to seek out the services of your dermatologist.

If your rash doesn’t go away on its own or with simple home therapies, it’s time to seek out your dermatologist. Dr. Heller may recommend:

  • Cortisone or antibiotic creams and lotions
  • Prescription strength antihistamine medications
  • Prescription strength steroid medications

The constant itching of a rash can be uncomfortable, and the appearance of a rash can affect your self-esteem. You don’t have to let a rash take over. Just pick up the phone and call Dr. Jeffrey Heller of Heller Dermatology Center, with offices in Daytona Beach and Port Orange, Florida. Call today and get rid of your rash!

Cosmetic procedures are readily available to help you look great and feel even better. However, understanding your options can help you botoxmake the most informed and knowledgeable decision for the best dermatological treatment for you and your complexion. Botox is a common choice for people who wish to look younger and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Find out more about Botox and what it can do for you with Dr. Jeffrey Heller at his practice locations in Daytona Beach and Port Orange, FL.

What is Botox? 
Botox is a cosmetic dermatological treatment which uses a chemical substance to freeze the muscles under the skin. The restricted movement of the muscles allows the skin over them to relax, minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and even preventing new wrinkles. Since the skin cannot move, it cannot wrinkle, and wrinkles cannot form.

Could I benefit from Botox? 
Doctors suggest Botox for the areas between the eyes between the eyebrows and for crow’s feet on the sides of the eyes. Though normally used for cosmetic purposes, Botox can also accomplish medical tasks as well. Doctors sometimes use Botox to treat migraine headaches and conditions like excessive sweating.

What can I expect during a Botox session? 
Before your Botox session, your doctor will cleanse and clean your facial skin. They will mark the areas of the injections and examine your muscles to ensure the correct placement of the Botox injections. Your doctor will use a super-thin needle to inject the Botox substance into the muscles underneath your skin. You may feel a slight pinch, but should not be in any real pain during your treatment. Afterward, you may notice some bruising or redness which will normally resolve itself on its own in a day or two.

Botox can help you look and feel great. Consulting with your doctor can help you fully understand this treatment and what it can do for you.

Tags: moles   Skin Cancer  

skin cancer moleIf you’re at a higher risk of skin diseases like melanoma or carcinoma, it’s important that you watch the moles on your skin. Abnormal cells can grow inside of moles, even if they’ve been fine for many years. If a mole suddenly starts changing in appearance, schedule an urgent checkup with a Port Orange and Daytona Beach, FL, dermatologist at the Heller Dermatology Center.

About Moles
Moles, sometimes called birthmarks, are small groupings of cells that look different from the rest of the skin. They can be dark colored or reddish in appearance. Some are slightly raised while others are flush with the skin. Some moles are present since birth (congenital), some appear in the adolescent years, and others show up later in life. Virtually everyone has at least one mole and most people have anywhere from 10 to 40 in various places.

Mole Concerns
Most moles are harmless and don’t need constant monitoring, but some need special attention, especially when a patient is at a higher risk of skin cancer. A normal mole will remain unchanged in appearance and is painless. Some moles slowly disappear with time. But when a mole begins to increase in size, change colors, or feel painful, that is a cause for concern. It’s a sign that the cells, called melanocytes, may be changing abnormally. An urgent skin exam by your Port Orange and Daytona Beach dermatologist should be the next step. 

What to Watch For
Dermatologists use an acronym called “ABCDE” to determine if a mole may be abnormal. Here is what to check for:

- Asymmetry (meaning that if you drew a line down the center, one side would not look like the other).
- Border irregularities (the edges of the mole look strange or undefined)
- Color changes or differences (a normal mole is one color).
- Diameter (a mole should not grow in size, which is why it’s wise to measure its diameter regularly).
- Evolving (one mole that evolves in any other way, including crusting, itching, or bleeding).

Is It Time for a Skin Checkup? 
Your Port Orange and Daytona Beach, FL, dermatologist will confirm if a mole needs special attention. It’s up to you to schedule a checkup at the first sign of a potential issue. Call (386) 239-8700 today to schedule a skin appointment with Dr. Jeffrey Heller at the Heller Dermatology Center.
