Bergen Dermatology's October newsletter

Fall is officially upon us, which means the holiday season isn’t far behind. October is the proverbial calm before the flurry of festivities, making it the ideal time to take care of your skin (and yourself!) before our calendars are overflowing with family gatherings, parties and other get-togethers. Whether you’d like to give your appearance a little “refresh” or you want to get your annual skin-cancer check in before the end of the year, give us a call to schedule an appointment!

October is also Eczema Awareness Month, which is very fitting since many people with this common skin condition experience flare-ups as the weather transitions from summer to fall. If moisturizing (a lot!) and avoiding triggers such as harsh products, scratchy fabrics and long, hot showers isn’t keeping itching and redness under control, it’s time to pay us a visit.

A few skin-related reminders as you get into the Halloween spirit… While it’s OK to indulge your sweet tooth as a treat, too much sugar is never a good idea. Beyond being a source of empty calories and putting you at increased risk of diabetes, high blood sugar fuels a process called glycation within the skin. Glycation causes collagen fibers to become brittle and less flexible—which leads to fine lines, wrinkles and sagging. Just something to keep in mind before you reach for the Halloween candy! (And if your costume involves elaborate makeup, read on for Dr. B.’s tips for keeping skin calm and clear.)

Whether a summer filled with fun in the sun has left you with freckles or other patches of discoloration, you’re finally ready to commit to an effective anti-acne routine or just want to reboot your skincare regimen, we have easy-to-use pre-assembled skincare systems that can help you give your face a fresh start. The beginning of the new season is the ideal time to update your products—and prepare your skin for cooler weather to come.

Bergen Dermatology's August newsletter

Time sure flies when you’re having fun, which explains why it seems August came out of nowhere! As we enter the tail end of summer, we hope you’ve been making sun protection a top priority—and if you could be a bit more careful, it’s never too late to start!  

Did you know that August is also Hair Loss Awareness Month? Millions of women and men experience hair thinning and loss, but there are several ways to slow its progression and restore a full head of strong healthy hair. Early intervention is key, so if you’re noticing more hair than usual in your brush, shower drain or on your pillow, schedule an appointment ASAP so we can help determine the cause of your hair loss and get growth back on track!

Bergen Dermatology's July newsletter

How’s everyone’s summer going? We’re certainly making the most of the beautiful, balmy weather and gearing up for July 4th—with plenty of sunscreen on hand, of course! (We hope you’re remembering to re-apply, especially when spending extended periods of time outdoors.) 

Summer can come along with some unique skin concerns, ranging from sunburn and bug bites to rashes like poison ivy—but remember we’re here to help! Read on for Dr. Boakye’s advice for dealing with these season-specific problems so you and your skin are covered (at least until you’re able to get into the office, if necessary).

This time of year is all about relaxing, whether spending time with family and friends or traveling—but we can help you look a bit more rested and rejuvenated even if you’re going about your business as usual. Wrinkle-relaxing toxins and filler injections are a sure-fire way to get the pick-me-up you’re looking for, and be sure to check out this month’s lip-and-chin special! CLICK HERE for more…

Bergen Dermatology's June newsletter

June… Really? Just like that school’s out, summer Fridays are in full effect and it’s time to enjoy the weather we’ve spent the last nine months longing for! It goes without saying that sun protection should be top of mind, but did you know that June is Acne Awareness Month as well?

When acne doesn’t respond to over-the-counter treatments, dermatologist intervention is in order. From skincare products and prescription-based topicals to in-office treatments for both active acne and lingering acne scars, Dr. Boakye can customize the optimal anti-acne plan of attack that will garner the best results for your skin. 

From acne and other medical skin conditions to pro-aging treatments that help you turn back the clock, Bergen Dermatology has all of your skin’s unique needs covered. Schedule a consultation today to get your best skin yet! Click HERE to view the entire newsletter!

Bergen Dermatology's April newsletter

As the saying goes, “April showers bring May flowers”—which means glorious weather is bound to be here before we know it! That’s why there’s no better time than now to take the steps necessary to achieve healthy, radiant skin that seems to “blossom” just in time for spring. From skincare that helps reset and refresh your complexion to treatments that reveal a new-and-improved you (before Mother’s Day!), we have a variety of specials to help you get a jump-start before the new season is in full swing.

April is also Rosacea Awareness Month—and according to the National Rosacea Society, this common skin condition affects up to 16 million Americans of all ethnicities. If you experience facial flushing, burning or stinging—especially after specific “triggers” (see this month’s Ask Dr. B. below to learn more)—Dr. Boakye can determine if you’re dealing with rosacea, and help you get symptoms under control with the ideal treatments and medications.

Bergen Dermatology's July newsletter

Summer is officially at full tilt, and we hope you’re enjoying the beautiful weather (and applying your sunscreen, of course)! We bet you didn’t know that July is UV Safety Month, and although this educational effort isn’t as publicized as Skin Cancer Awareness Month, it’s important nonetheless. Remember, UV rays can penetrate glass, so if you spend a significant amount of time in the car or sitting by a window, sunscreen is essential to protect your skin from damage. We’re all about healthy skin, which is why we’re offering 15% off our Sheer Physical Sunscreen and Tinted Antioxidant Sunscreen this month!
