Sunscreen for Every Skin Type

Summer’s coming. Do you have your skin protection ready? Although you should be wearing a good sunscreen every single day, summer is a good reminder to refill your supply and to evaluate your options. What sunscreen is right for you?

Sunscreen for every skin typeChildren’s Skin

Children’s skin is very sensitive and the chemicals often used in adult formulations (specifically PABA and oxybenzone) can be irritating to young skin. Choose sunscreens that are formulated with zinc oxide or titanium dioxide (these are physical blockers to the sun’s rays rather than chemical blockers). Look for products specifically made for children for the best results. Don’t use sunscreen on babies under 6 months. Keep them out of the sun!

Sensitive Skin

Children aren’t the only ones with sensitive skin. Adults with sensitive skin may find sunscreens with PABA and oxybenzone irritating as well. Also avoid sunscreens with fragrances and preservatives. Sensitive skin doesn’t mean you can’t wear sunscreen; it just means you need to find the right one.

Acne-Prone Skin

Some patients with acne actually have very sensitive skin. You may want to choose a sunscreen without PABA and oxybenzone. Steer clear of “cream” formulations and try a gel sunscreen instead. These sunscreens often contain alcohol which can dry out the skin and potentially keep you from an acne flare up. If you’re using topical acne medications, gel formulations may be too drying (especially since your skin may already be dry from your medications). In this case, opt for a light, oil-free lotion. Silicones, which won’t cause acne flare-ups, are often used in place of oils to render sunscreens water resistant. Also, products marked non-comedogenic are a good choice.

Darker Skin

Darker skin tends to burn less often, but sunscreen is still needed. Physical sunscreens may make the face look chalky, so opt for chemical sunscreens instead. Micronized physical sunscreens can work well on darker skin.

Older Skin

If you haven’t been as diligent with sunscreen as you should have been in the past, turn a new leaf. It is never too late to reap some of the benefits of sunscreen. Even at an older age, sunscreen can lower your risk of some skin cancers and minimize sun damage, which leads to spots, wrinkles, sagging, etc.

Daily vs. Heavy Exposure

You need sunscreen every day, but your sunscreen needs aren’t the same every day. For daily use, choose a sunscreen with at least SPF 15. You’ll need about a nickel dollop for just your face. If you have brown spots, a history of skin cancer or very fair skin, choose an SPF 30+ for daily use.

On days when you’ll be spending more time in the sun, choose a higher SPF (at least SPF 30, the higher the better) and opt for a sunscreen that is water and sweat resistant. Apply lots and reapply often.

If you need to stock up on sunscreen, come on in. Right now, all of the sunscreens in our skin care line are 15% off.

Westchester Dermatologists Explain Common Cosmetic Procedures

Corrective skin care treatments can help patients overcome cosmetic challenges and feel more comfortable in their skin. However, knowing which procedure is right for a specific skin care challenge can be confusing. In fact, two patients with the same condition may not necessarily be given the same treatment. This is due to the fact that producing positive results in cosmetic dermatology requires taking an individualized approach.

To help patients better understand available skin care treatments, Westchester dermatologists from Abadir Associates have put together answers to some commonly asked skin care questions:

What is the difference between Botox and Dysport?

Botox and Dysport are different brands of botulinium toxin type A, which are very similar, though not the exact same. Cosmetic dermatologists use them to treat wrinkles, including frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead lines and even vertical neck bands. Both injection treatments are non-invasive and help relax the muscles. Even a small amount of either can help improve lip lines, lift the corners of the mouth, and smooth the chin. A major difference, is that some patients see results more quickly with Dysport than with Botox. Which treatment you ultimately choose will depend on your consultation with your cosmetic dermatologist.

What are filling injections used for?

Filling injections, such as Restylane, Juvederm, Sculptra and Radiesse, do exactly what their name implies: they “fill.” They are often used to fill smile lines, undereye circles, lines at the sides of the chin, and hollows – and they can even be combined with Botox or Dysport treatments for patients with extra deep frown lines. Most fillers last from 6 months to more than a year. However, some patients also have the option for permanent filling injections. To find out whether you are a candidate for this type of treatment, talk to one of Abadir Associates’ qualified Westchester dermatologists.

What is Thermage?

Thermage is a treatment that is used to tighten skin without surgery. It has become increasingly popular over the past years due to vast improvements in the technology. Thermage does not fill wrinkles or relax muscles, but it does help patients see more successful results with Botox and filling injections, as both treatments work much better when the skin is tighter and firmer. Thermage can be used anywhere on the body, including the face and neck, eyelids, hands, thighs , knees, arms, buttocks and abdomen. All tighten significantly with Thermage, and with minimal downtime. Additionally, the treatment can be used in conjunction with “mini liposuction” of jowls and under chin fat.

What are lasers used for in cosmetic skin care?

There are many types of lasers. Some are specific for removing prominent blood vessels, tattoos and dark pigment. Meanwhile, others are used for reducing unwanted hair and removing skin discolorations, fine lines and scarring. At Abadir Associates, we have a variety of lasers for different problems. If you think you could benefit from this technology, ask us and we’ll guide you through it.

Is there a treatment for removing sun or age spots?

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a safe and effective treatment that is used to treat sun spots, age spots, and other skin care issues like Rosacea. It can reduce or eliminate the need for make up by making the skin a more even tone, and it can even contribute to a more youthful, creamy complexion. Ask us about IPL and whether it can help your current skin care problem.
