When you think of dermatologists, images of pimple popping, skin scraping, and a stern “Don’t forget to wear sunscreen!” may come to mind. Sure, dermatologists do all the above, but there’s so much more to the job than that. For an inside peek at what the years of schooling entail (including how coveted getting into a dermatology program is), and what a dermatologist’s daily workload is like, we asked a couple well-respected doctors to chime in.

Anxiety may originally arise in your brain, but the consequences can play out all over your face. And we don’t just mean a clenched jaw or a furrowed brow.

Although there are many options for antiaging and scar treatments available at medical clinics these days, there are few that are as safe, effective and without down time such as the automated Micro Needling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or Accelerated Collagen Stimulation (ACS).

The concept of using a micropen instead of the original Dermaroller allows the microneedles to go straight into the skin from an upright position, as opposed to coming in at an angle when the roller is moving along the skin’s surface. The pressure applied is more consistent than when treating manually with the roller, and although outcome can be excellent with both options, the automated version simply eliminates variables that can weaken the end result.
