ISDN Eryfotona Actinica

product eryfotona actinica isdinIn addition to increasing your risk of skin cancer, including squamous cell carcinoma, melanoma, and basal cell carcinoma, sun exposure causes most of the skin changes we think of as "normal aging".

Ultraviolet light damages the elastin fibers in the skin, causing it to sag, stretch, and lose the ability to come back after stretching. It also causes the skin to bruise and tear more easily and take longer to heal.

Broad Spectrum Sunscreens can protect you from further skin damage, but what can you do about the damage that’s already done?

The Skincare Boutique at O’Donoghue Dermatology now carries the only sunblock that protects AND repairs with an enzyme that actually “gobbles up” sun damage.

Eryfotona Actinica® by ISDIN addresses existing actinic damage (damage caused by light) with DNA Repairsomes® and antioxidants, and it helps prevent additional sun damage with 11% zinc oxide.

Ever wonder what a Physician Assistant does?

Along with Doctors & Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants or PAs are primary care providers. They can examine, diagnose, treat, prescribe, interpret lab results, and even assist in surgeries.

Physician Assistants complete 2,000 hours of clinical rotation before becoming nationally certified & state licensed, and another 100 hours every 2 years in order to maintain those credentials.

PAs are an essential part of our practice & healthcare in general.

We are proud of the fact that, with 18 years of dermatological experience for Dr. J. Morgan O'Donoghue, 18 years for Lorie Masters, MCMS, PA-C, and 15 years for Amy Fenenga, PA-C , O'Donoghue Dermatology offers over
50 years of combined expertise ready to serve your skincare needs!
Check out this brief video from the American Academy of PAs (AAPA)

for more about the role of Physician Assistants in healthcare.

Dr. J. Morgan O'Donoghue is recognized among Castle Connolly’s Top Doctors®

SARASOTA, Florida (February 6, 2018)

Castle Connolly Top Doctor Award smallCastle Connolly Medical, publisher of the most trusted listing of Top Doctors® in the nation, has just selected Sarasota Dermatologist, Dr. J. Morgan O'Donoghue, as one of the Top Doctors in the Sarasota, FL area for 2018.

Castle Connolly Top Doctors® must be nominated by fellow board-certified MDs and DOs. Of the tens of thousands of nominations the company receives each year, only a small percentage is ultimately chosen for inclusion in the list. Castle Connolly’s physician-led research team narrows down the nominee’s based on their medical education, training, hospital appointments, disciplinary histories, and more.

“This recognition is especially meaningful because you are nominated by your peers and it also comes as we continue to celebrate my 18th year in practice”, said Dr. O’Donoghue.

Castle Connolly Medical identifies top doctors across the United States then provides consumers with detailed information about their education, training, and special expertise in their printed guides, online directories, and through partnerships with over 50 city and regional magazines and major newspapers. Doctors do not and cannot pay to be selected as a Castle Connolly Top Doctor.

Castle Connolly's President and CEO, Dr. John Connolly, had this to say about Dr. O'Donoghue's recognition, "Only a small percent of physicians are selected to be Castle Connolly Top Doctors®. Dr. O'Donoghue was nominated by physician peers and selected by our physician-led research team at Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. Selection is an impressive accomplishment worthy of recognition. My congratulations to Dr. O'Donoghue."

How long does it take for BOTOX to take effect?

BOTOX works by inhibiting the release of neurotransmitters, a naturally occurring protein that is released from our nerves and activates our muscles. Individuals have differing amounts of neurotransmitter receptors in their muscles, so each person will see a slightly quicker or slower response to BOTOX.

Most patients will respond within 72 hours of a treatment, but it can take up to a week for the effects to be noticeable. Typically, the best response is reached around 10 days after administration and last about 3 months, but it can last up to four months.

How long does BOTOX last?

The effects of BOTOX can last anywhere from 2 to 6 months, but, for most people, it lasts about 90 days. With regular use (3 to 4 times per year), the injected muscles will eventually thin or atrophy, making the treatments last several weeks longer.

The way in which the BOTOX is mixed can also affect the longevity of the treatment. If the product is diluted too much, it may not be effective. I like to mix the BOTOX with only a small amount of saline, so I can place the concentrated mixture exactly where I want it. This also reduces the possibility of it migrating to unwanted areas.

The effectiveness and longevity of the treatment is also affected by the way in which the product is handled and stored. Once mixed, BOTOX must be handled with care; if the mixture is agitated, it will not work as well. It is also best to keep it refrigerated.

May is Melanoma Awareness Month

Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the US. Each year there are more new cases of skin cancer than breast, prostate, lung and colon cancer - combined!

Skin cancer can affect anyone, regardless of skin color, gender or age. In fact, one in five Americans will develop skin cancer during their lifetime. These facts may be alarming, but because skin cancer is, for the most part, a behavioral disease, it is highly preventable.

About 86% of melanoma and 90 percent of nonmelanoma skin cancers are associated with exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays. That’s why embracing proper sun protection is critical all year-round.

The good news:

Skin cancer can almost always be cured when it’s found and treated early. Communities, health professionals, and families can work together to prevent skin cancer or detect it early on.

Follow these Prevention Guidelines to stay sun-safe:

  • - Seek the shade, especially between 10 AM and 4 PM.
  • - Don’t get burned.
  • - Avoid tanning and never use UV tanning beds.
  • - Cover up with clothing, including a broad-brimmed hat and UV-blocking sunglasses.
  • - Use a broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher every day. For extended outdoor activity, use a water-resistant broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.
  • - Apply 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) of sunscreen to your entire body 30 minutes before going outside. Reapply every 2 hours or immediately after swimming or excessive sweating.
  •  - Keep newborns out of the sun. Sunscreens should be used on babies over the age of six months.
  •  - Examine your skin head-to-toe every month.
  •  - See your physician every year for a professional skin exam.

How can Melanoma/Skin Cancer Detection & Prevention Month make a difference?

  •  - By encouraging families to adopt good habits like wearing sunscreen and limiting their time in the sun - together.
  •  - By motivating educators and administrators to teach kids about the harms of UV radiation and why it’s important to protect yourself.
  •  - By identifying community youth leaders who can talk to their peers about taking steps to prevent skin cancer.
  •  - And by partnering with a local Hospital, state fair, or similar organization to host a skin cancer screening event.

Ever wonder why BOTOX® doesn't work for some?

Resistance to BOTOX is extremely rare. The most common reason why the product fails is the technique of the individual injecting it. If the BOTOX is not placed into the muscle or the if the proper amount is not used – it won’t work well. Also, a good understanding of the patient is essential for good results.

Another reason why people might feel that BOTOX did not work for them is a misunderstanding of what the product can do. Some patients are under the impression that BOTOX can treat all lines and wrinkles. In fact, BOTOX is best for treating wrinkles that form when you move the muscle, i.e. when you frown, raise your eyebrows or smile. Wrinkles present at rest may improve after several years of using BOTOX every three months, but they will not go away immediately.

For wrinkles that are present at rest, other adjunctive therapies like lasers and wrinkle fillers are more appropriate.
