Pucker Up! — February 14, 2021

Pucker Up!

Three things to do in February for lip enhancement

1) Lip filler.  There are a number of products ranging from Juvederm Ultra to Restylane Kysse to enhance lips, decrease lip lines and perk up the corners around the mouth. 

2) Topical creams and gels.  These products give a temporary smoothing and plumping and take effect in minutes . 

3) The much touted Lip Flip to perk up your lips and reduce smoker’s lines.  This is accomplished with small amounts of Botox. 

If you want great lips, try all three!

Psoriasis and Coronavirus — March 26, 2020

Psoriasis and Coronavirus

Many patients who have severe psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis are on medications called immunologics.  These medications work by altering portions of the immune system at the cellular level.  Because of this, patients on these medications may may have an increased risk of infection. Certain drugs, such as those called TNF inhibitors (drugs like Enbrel and Humira), may have a higher risk than others.

When deciding whether to continue or stop your medication, you also need to think about other factors that may put you in a higher risk group such as diabetes, COPD, or age greater than 60.

None of us knows everything about this virus.  Call your doctor and have a frank discussion about your concerns.

Stay healthy.
