Skin Scholar

Barb blog 1

Hello everyone! This is my first blog to our O’Donoghue Dermatology patients and potential patients. I have known many of you for more than twelve years and always look forward to seeing you again. I thought it would be great to expand our reach and let others know why you all have been so loyal to our practice. Dr. O’Donoghue is known by many as a great doctor, not only because of his high level of experience and knowledge, but also because he treats everyone with amazing kindness and care. It is an honor to work with Dr. O’Donoghue and to help him provide our patients with exceptional care.

So, as I was thinking about writing this blog, it brought me back to a college project that I had to do. We were asked to come up with a campaign for a business idea or marketing promotion. I chose skin care (surprise, surprise) as my topic. I learned a lot about proper skin care over the years from Dr. O’Donoghue, our medical assistants, reps, and patients. One part of my job I love the most is to share what I have learned and to help others. My project was named the Skin Scholar. So, I am thinking that it will be a perfect blog name. I hope you do too! I will pick topics that most of our patients need help with on a daily basis. We have knowledgeable staff to help you with all your skin care questions. I thank you all for trusting our practice and loyalty over the last twelve years. Stayed tuned for future blogs from the Skin Scholar!

Next blog subject sneak peek: What is the difference between skin care products sold at a physician office versus a retail store? It can be overwhelming to decide the right products for your skin! Stayed tuned!

Candela GentleLASE

The revolutionary Candela GentleLASE is a high-energy, long-pulse laser that can safely treat a variety of skin conditions, including facial veins, angiomas, port wine stains, and vascular birthmarks, on all skin types. It can also be used for permanent hair removal.

The laser delivers a controlled amount of therapeutic heat deep into the skin tissue while its patented Dynamic Cooling Device™ (DCD™) protects the upper layers of your skin and minimizes discomfort with a burst of cryogen. Each laser pulse may be preceded and followed by a cooling spray.

The length and number of sessions depends on a variety of factors including the severity of the condition being treated. Your doctor will be able to provide an estimate before starting treatment.

If you are bothered by facial veins, port wine stains, vascular birthmarks or a similar condition, you might be a good candidate for pulsed dye laser treatment.

Call O’Donoghue Dermatology at 941-926-SKIN (7546) to schedule your appointment today!

How to check your skin for skin cancer

Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States and finding spots that could be cancerous is as simple as looking at your skin.

When examining the skin, look for the ABCDEs of Melanoma and make an appointment with a board-certified dermatologist if any moles exhibit these signs:

A – Asymmetry: One half of the spot is unlike the other half.

B – Border: The spot has an irregular, scalloped or poorly defined border.

C – Color: The spot has varying colors from one area to the next, such as shades of tan, brown, or black, or with areas of white, red, or blue.

D – Diameter: Melanomas are usually greater than 6mm, or about the size of a pencil eraser when they are diagnosed, but they can be smaller.

E – Evolving: A mole or spot on your skin that looks different from the rest or is changing in size, shape, or color.

To check your skin, looking at the front and back of your body. When examining your own skin, stand in front of a mirror. Examine your skin by following these steps:

  • Raise the arms and examine the right and left sides of the body.
  • Then bend your elbows and look carefully at your forearms, upper underarms.
  • Next, examine the back of your legs, spaces between your toes and your soles.
  • Then, examine those hard‐to see areas like your back, buttocks and the top ofyour head. Use a mirror to inspect the back of your neck and scalp, parting your hair for a better view.

“Current estimates show one in five Americans will be diagnosed with skin cancer in their lifetime, so it’s important to be familiar with your skin, especially your moles,” said Dr. Rohrer. “Catching skin cancer early is key for successful treatment, so check your skin regularly and see a board-certified dermatologist if you spot anything suspicious.”

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.
