To grow your hair as long as possible, it helps to understand that hair growth occurs in a regular repeating cycle which can be disrupted by many things. Anagen Phase: This is the active growing phase of your hair which lasts for an average of 3 years (1000 days), but can be anywhere from 2-6 years and determines the length of your hair. Catagen Phase: During this time, lasting 1-2 weeks on average, hair follicles undergo a transition from the growing phase to a resting phase during which all growth activity ceases. Telogen Phase: This is the final resting phase and hair follicles remain in this phase around 3-4 months, or 100 days on average, before they are pushed out by new hairs growing underneath or pulled out by a hairbrush or other mechanical action causing friction such as shampooing. Your scalp normally contains 100,000 hairs, and the average number of hairs shed daily is 100-150. Hair grows normally, and at different rates, on all skin surfaces except palms, soles of hands and feet and specific genital areas. So, while you may never have hair as long as a mermaid, you can make the best of the hair you have by maintaining a healthy lifestyle of nutrition and exercise and being gentler on your hair at all times. This past Tuesday, the United States surgeon general issued a call to action to prevent skin cancer, calling it a major public health problem that requires immediate action.
Most cases of melanoma – as many as 90 percent – are believed to be caused by cumulative exposure to UV rays. According to the Melanoma Education Foundation, One blistering sunburn before age 20 doubles your lifetime risk of melanoma.
Whenever spending time in the sun, always wear a sunscreen that blocks both UVA and UVB rays of 15 SPF or higher. Use a full 1 ounce of sunscreen (that’s a shot glass full) to cover your body and don’t forget, neck and ears, face and tops of feet and if your have thinning hair, your scalp! Answer: First of all, the brand “Accutane” is no longer available so we should speak about it using its generic name which is isotretinoin.
Although isotrentioin is approved only for severe cystic acne, it is really useful in less severe forms of acne to prevent the need for continuous treatment and repeated office visits those patients require. In my opinion, oral isotrentioin is warranted for severe acne, poorly responsive acne (acne that improves by less than 50% after 6 months of therapy with combined oral and topical antibiotics), acne that relapses off oral treatment  or acne that induces scarring and  psychological distress. I usually start patients at a half-dose  (20-40 mg daily) to decrease flare-ups of the cystic acne and then increase it on a monthly based on the patient’s response.
The major advantage to choosing isotretinoin treatment is reliability in almost all patients. Isotretinoin is a potent teratogen (affects a developing fetus) and causes severe birth defects if taken while a woman is pregnant. Although you may experience any of the physical side effects such as dryness, inflammation of the lips (chelitis), nosebleeds (epistaxis), sensitivity to the sun (photosensitivity), itchy skin,  and many others, most are extremely manageable. There have been many claims of adverse events from patients while taking this medication, so we monitor patients thoroughly during their course of treatment.
However, in all my years of prescribing the medication, I have rarely stopped the drug because of the side effects.
The truth is, when the patient is thoroughly monitored and all precautions are managed, isotretinoin is an extremely effective option for patients with the worst cases of acne and for those patients who acne is negatively affecting their lives.
Answer:   Yes, the condition definitely heats up during the summer months but can plague sufferers all year long with overly sweaty armpits, palms and even on soles of the feet. First, we’ll evaluate your excessive sweating for any potential causes of secondary hyperhidrosis (for example, an underlying disease that causes excessive sweating such as hyperthyroidism). To gauge your sweating problem, we will try you on stronger prescription-grade antiperspirants which can also help block sweat glands to reduce sweating. After a few weeks of trial, if the prescription products do not reduce your sweating problem well enough, we can now use Botox® (onabotulinumtoxinA), which is FDA approved for the treatment of excessive sweating of armpits.
These injections work to temporarily de-nerve the sweat gland and results in a local reduction in sweating where injections have been administered for up 5 months. Question:  I’ve seen plenty of products in the drug store skincare aisle that contain retinol and say they reduce the appearance of fine lines while balancing an uneven complexion. Answer: While they are both derivatives of Vitamin A, called “retinoids,” and used to promote faster skin cell turnover, they are not the same. All retinoids have been well-studied, tested and been proven effective and powerful for treating skin issues ranging from acne to many signs of aging, including sun damage.
But there is a marked difference between retinoid products you get only by prescription and the retinol products you see on drug-store shelves.
If you find, during the dead of winter, that dryness, peeling, redness and cracking are more pronounced, simply reduce the usage of your prescription retinoid to just once per day, or every other day or even every two or three days until side effects are diminished. Retinol products don’t require a prescription so you can buy them over-the-counter at the drug store or grocery store, without a prescription. When choosing a drug store retinol product, check the ingredients list to make sure vitamin A is listed toward the top of the ingredients list.
Luckily, a mucocele is easy to treat.  Usually, just one soft, round, painless lesion (lump) appears noticeably on the lower lip, which may be anywhere from 2-10 mm in diameter. I also recommend rinsing the mouth thoroughly with a mixture of one tablespoon of salt to one cup of warm water four to six times per day to help it heal. A mucocele can also form anywhere in the mouth when there is a true blockage of a salivary duct (which may turn painful), so always see a dermatologist or dentist immediately if you see or feel a bump in your mouth. Scars are composed of new connective tissue that replaces lost tissue in the dermis or deeper parts of the skin, as a result of injury.
A Hypertrophic Scar remains confined to the borders of the original wound and most of the time, retains its shape. Conversely, a Keloid is an overgrowth of dense fibrous tissue that you’ll notice extending beyond the borders of the original wound. If you know you have a hereditary predisposition toward keloid scarring, mention that to your dermatologist because then we will not try to surgically remove them (called excision) because keloids tend to recur. The differences… A hypertrophic scar can occur at an any age and usually stays within the borders of the original wound, whereas a keloid commonly occurs in the third decade and enlarges beyond the area of the initial wounding with web-like extensions. We often use a 3-step process in the office to attack raised, hardened scars as soon as we notice a scar is exhibiting signs of hardening, as early as one month-post op, in the case of a scar due to surgery.  The earlier you treat a keloid or hypertrophic scar, the better your results will be. 5-FU works to reduce skin’s metabolism rate and inhibits the over-production of the fibroblasts building up on and around the wound. While any keloid or hypertrophic scar can be treated with this technique,  you’ll get the best results the younger the scar is. No matter what, keep all scars out of the sun for best healing, at least until the “pink” of new skin is gone because exposure to the sun only makes scars darker.
Answer:  Clinically, we call that cicatricial alopecia which is the medical term for hair loss due to scarring. Sores, inflammation and scars on the scalp for any reason can cause hair follicles to die, and resulting hair loss can be permanent! Since scars, sores or inflammation  occur due to many different causes, you should head directly to your dermatologist so you can have your scalp examined and a diagnosis made. Any type of scalp reaction or injury resulting in a lesion that causes a scar can cause death to the hair follicles and permanent hair loss and we call that scarring alopecia. Lichen planopilaris: Also called follicular lichen planus, this a rare inflammatory condition results in patchy progressive permanent hair loss. Sarcoidosis: This disease, also with unknown origin,  causes collections of mixed inflammatory cells (granulomas) which form lesions resulting in scarring at many different parts of the body, including the scalp. Seborrheic dermatitis:  We believe this condition is an inflammatory reaction related to an over-abundance of a normal  yeast species  found on the scalp called M. Ringworm (tinea capitis): On the scalp, this common fungal infection characterized by itchy red rings can result in scaling and hair loss  in children, and can progress to folliculitis, too (see below).
Folliculitis decalvans: Simple folliculitis is any bacterial infection of the hair follicles.
Central Centrifugal Cicatricial Alopecia (CCCA): Usually seen in African American women, this type of scarring alopecia usually develops on the crown and spreads peripherally to form a large oval of hair loss on the scalp.
I have found that most patients experience hair loss very gradually (and cannot see the back and top of their head) and the prolonged course of the disease may cause a lack of necessary action.


Beginning with babies 6 months and older, limit time in the sun and protect skin with sunscreen and protective hats and clothing whenever exposed. Answer: I love coconut oil as an added treat for hair and skin (as long as you are not allergic to nuts or coconut).
That smell is like being on a desert island (refined VCO  does not retain its natural coconut aroma). Not only does VCO have a high saturated fat content-composed of 90% saturated triglycerides, but its low molecular weight and straight linear chain (called a medium-chain fatty acid, in contrast to other saturated fats comprised of long chain fatty acids which make them larger molecules), it is able to permeate the hair shaft  and skin surface rather than just sitting on top. The medical literature supports my own observations of VCO as a healthful skin conditioner and moisturizer.
For hair, in addition to its high absorbability, VCO contains a high percentage of the saturated fat, lauric acid, which also is highly attracted to the protein in hair.
Coconut oil can be greasy if applied too heavily, but don’t worry, it absorbs in a few minutes leaving behind that beachy smell and softer, healthier, smoother skin. Enter your email address to subscribe to this blog and receive notifications of new posts by email.
Hair loss is a major problem in our society due to the fact that it has a great deal of social and cultural importance. The AOCD was recognized in 1958 as a Specialty College of the American Osteopathic Association. In addition, terminal (dark, course) hair is always present on men’s face, chest and abdomen. Sometimes hair doesn’t appear to be growing because it breaks off in the middle or at the ends. Any physical or emotional trauma can shock your body (and your hair follicles) which halts the hair growth phase and pushes it straight to the telogen phase causing a shedding of a larger than normal amount of hair (which thankfully and  usually reverses).
Systemic, skin disease and deficiencies can affect the scalp, the hair shaft and the hair follicles. Some medications are known to have the side effect of diffuse (all over the head) hair loss. We can determine the causes of telogen effluvium or medication side effects and educate you about treating hair gentler. If a gentle tugging of the hair produces more than 6 hairs at a time we consider that an abnormal hair loss condition.
If we notice any lesions, papules or pustules we will culture and biopsy the area to rule out scalp infections, fungal infections and carcinomas. According to the American Cancer Society,  more cases of skin cancer are diagnosed annually than breast, prostate, lung and colon cancer cases combined and skin cancer rates are increasing. UV rays are also a major risk factor for the most common curable forms of skin cancer,  basal and squamous cell skin cancers.
What’s the truth about this medication and how can I get rid of this acne once and for all? Isotretinoin is an acne medication that does resolve acne in most patients once and for all. Generally speaking, a patient who we have treated with isotretinoin will almost certainly never break out to the same degree again. These include elevations in blood cholesterol, gastrointestinal disorders, liver enzyme elevations, psychiatric disorders, visual and hearing impairment and others. Sweating is a normal bodily function, but some people may have overactive sweat glands that produce more sweat beyond what is required for regulation of body temperature.
Typical over-the-counter antiperspirants are 1-2% aluminum chloride but prescription products can contain up to a 20% solution of aluminum chloride hexahydrate or similar aluminum salts.
We also use Myobloc® (rimabotulinumtoxinB) or Dysport® (abobotulinumtoxinA) off-label as an alternative, especially for those who have excessive sweating on palms and soles of feet. Injections must be repeated at regular intervals to keep excessive sweating at bay and you may still need to use an antiperspirant. By the way, winter weather and drier indoor heat may be exacerbating your already winter-dry skin, if you need to use them less don’t worry, the powerful retinoids still do their job! Retinols are simply a synthetic, weaker version of a retionid and as such, they act more slowly than a retinoid. It may look clear or bluish and the bluish tint represents a bruising to the mucous duct from the trauma.  The exact cause of the lump is a rupture of a minor salivary (mucous) duct, which causes a leaking of mucous into cystic spaces combined with inflammation from the trauma.
That’s why I always drain the mucocele (cyst) of its excess fluid to allow the healing process to begin before any more damage to surrounding tissue occurs.
Musicians who play wind instruments may develop a mucocele opposite the upper second molar on the inside of the cheek (called the buccal mucosa) from the repeated pressure on the mucous duct there. Under normal circumstances,  wound healing takes place through the rapid and repeated reproduction of fibroblasts (the most common cells of connective tissue) at the wound site. It is characterized by hardness, redness and irritation compared to the surrounding skin and can take the form of a firm papule or nodule. Keloidal growth can also be triggered by pregnancy and compared with hypertrophic scars, a keloid can often be painful and super-sensitive.
We combine that with Kenalog (triamcinolone), the low-dose corticosteroid, and perform injections one to three times per week, at regular intervals such as Monday, Wednesday and Friday, depending on how red, hardened and inflamed the scar is.  Once the scar softens, injections can be reduced to two times per week, once a week and then every other week, monthly and finally, every six months.
Some areas of hair loss feel smooth with no hair in them and some are sensitive and painful, as if a sore is there or has healed. The sooner you figure out the the source, the sooner you can begin treatment to cure any lesions (sores) so they don’t scar and cause permanent hair loss. We will ask you about any recent illnesses, injuries, allergies, your lifestyle, medications and your haircare regimen. Initially you may notice some small or spiny red bumps around involved follicles which may or may not be itchy.
But when hair loss is caused by  redness, swelling and pustules surrounding hair follicles that appears to be spreading, it is called folliculitis decalvans. Originally, this type of hair loss was thought to be caused by hair straightening with a hot comb or due to the hot petrolatum used with the iron; however, was also found to take place in patients without the use of hot combs or straightening methods. You need to know that the progressive destruction of hairs will result in ever-expanding areas of permanent hair loss. But, I only recommend buying organic unrefined expeller-pressed virgin coconut oil (also called VCO). Studies have shown that  VCO use may improve skin barrier function (protecting skin from bacteria and fungal intrusion) and  decrease trans-epidermal water loss (skin’s ability to retain moisture). Because VCO actually absorbs through the hair shaft, it has positive effects on the strength of hair while it prevents hair damage and protein loss from styling, brushing and even chemical treatments.
But only apply to dry hair because water limits the VCO from coating the hair properly and permeating the hair shaft.
Just be sure that you don’t use coconut oil at all if you are allergic to nuts or to coconut. Normal hair loss is approximately 100 hairs per day; the average scalp contains about 100,000 hairs. The AOCD now oversees 27 dermatology residency programs that are currently training 119 residents in dermatology. The reason you cannot see hair growing is because the average growth rate is just 0.37mm per day. While many things can disrupt the normal growth cycle, halt hair growth and increase fall out, nothing, including medications, shaving techniques or menstruation can make hair grow faster. The duration of hair growth cycles (and hair length) vary with the anatomical location of the hair, for example, scalp growth lasts for 3-5 years and the eyelash cycle averages just 3-5 months. This can be caused by rough treatment in shampooing, toweling wet hair, combing and brushing, tight pony tails and braids and use of heated appliances all causing hair to weaken as it ages (the ends) and simply break off. These include folliculitis (an infection of the hair follicles which can involve just one inflamed follicle or spread to others), autoimmune conditions such as alopecia areata, psoriasis or lupus that result in patchy hair loss, seborrheic dermatitis, fungal infections and even trichotillomania (a compulsive disorder characterized by a secret compulsion to pull hair out from the head and body parts), among other skin and hair diseases.


Exposure to UV rays comes from the sun and other sources like tanning beds and sunlamps and the U.S. About one-third of patients who relapse will need only topical therapy; the others sometimes need oral therapy.
It can be most noticeable at the armpits because sweat can soak through clothing and become obviously embarrassing. While these can be irritating in those with sensitive skin and sweat glands, they do reduce perspiration, however they require continuous usage. However, these products can be useful if you find prescription retinoid products too strong for your skin.
Yes, she had been riding her bike and fell, hitting that portion of her lip against her teeth. But when fibroblast activity continues unchecked and excessive collagen (protein found in connective tissue) is deposited at the site of injury, the scar gets too big and a hypertrophic scar or keloid is formed. The Pulsed Dye Laser is used to decrease any redness, to normalize the wound surface and improve skin texture at the scar and to further blend scar into surrounding skin and we perform those treatments in intervals of four to eight months apart.
Older scars that have been hardened for many years and are not inflamed, red, itchy or painful, will not respond as quickly or as thoroughly.
Once  hair loss occurs, hair does not usually grow back because the scar tissue has killed the hair follicle.
We will closely examine your scalp using a magnifying glass and a special light to determine if the lesions have bacterial or fungal causes. Hair follicles are damaged first by the sores and then the resulting scar tissue causes permanent hair loss.
This eventually forms larger reddish lesions (resembling a lichen pattern) and scar tissue which damages hair follicles and causes hair to fall out and not grow back. Another type of scarring alopecia, hairs shed as follicles are completely destroyed by the inflammation. Look for broad-spectrum formulations specifically for babies and toddlers who have more sensitive skin than adults. Remember, skin keeps impeccable records, so every minute spent in the sun adds up as skin damage and possibly skin cancer.
If you use it at room temperature (when it is solid) it is the perfect ointment to relieve dehydrated, chapped, scaly and itchy skin and it can even improve symptoms of psoriasis and excema. Animal studies have shown that coconut oil use can improve wound healing and increase collagen production, too.
Each individual hair grows about a half inch per month, survives for approximately 4.5 years, and is replaced within 6 months. And, since the number of hair follicles is pre-determined in utero and does not increase after birth, there’s nothing you can do to increase the amount of hair that you have, despite what many websites and products may have you believe.
Any injury such as a burn or laceration to the scalp can also cause a scar resulting in permanent hair loss to the area contributing to a shorter look.
Hair loss will not occur in everyone, but if you experience it, work with your doctor to evaluate different medications and dosages to improve or stop the hair loss. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) now requires that tanning beds and sunlamps carry a warning stating people under 18 should not use them. Lushniak said there is a flawed perception in the US that tanned skin looks healthy, and that needs to change. For those with acne and rosacea, oral isotretinoin has been shown to induce a full remission in many cases. I often retreat patients with isotretinoin again because it is reliably effective and we can predict their side effects. Or you may also be aware your palms are often sweaty so you avoid shaking hands with others.  Hyperhidrosis can occur  in many parts of the body whether exposed to triggers such as heat, physical activity or exertion, embarrassment, stress or not.
But a mucocele is not just a child’s occurrence…it can happen to anyone who bumps their lower lip on anything which can be common in active adults when skiing, kayaking, climbing, mountain biking or other activities. If scar tissue forms we may treat it using cryotherapy (freezing) or a laser resurfacing treatment.
Instead they grow in a pseudo tumor fashion and distort the size and shape of the original lesion.
Hypertrophic scars respond better than keloids, which frequently recur, although small isolated keloids (less than 2 cm in diameter) usually completely resolve with this technique without recurrence. We will feel your entire scalp and any lesions feeling for inflammation, sores or scales to determine the exact nature of the lesions and how they appear at different stages and locations. A resulting scar is left behind where hair will no longer grow.  Simple folliculitis (one sore) can stem  from a bug bite or a scratch and flare-up or spread if infected with the bacteria Staphylococcus Aureus but recently we have found Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) in some lesions and boils, so we always want to take a culture in any open lesions on the scalp, especially those that are spreading.
More than one million Americans develop skin cancer every year mostly from long-term exposure to ultraviolet radiation from the sun.
Simply lather up shampoo in your hands and apply directly and completely over hair and scalp, from roots to ends, then rinse thoroughly. We will also document any hair loss that has occurred and take pictures for future reference. This occurs in mostly older women and appears in a band-like pattern in the frontal and temporal areas of the scalp. In addition, a variant of folliculitis decalvans occurs in African Americans who present with ingrown hairs of the beard (pseudofolliculitis), acne keloidalis (a destructive folliculitis of the back of the scalp) and scarring alopecia.
There are many different reasons that cause hair loss and most of them can be avoided or treated with success.The most common type of hair loss is called androgenic alopecia. Scars may be smooth or rough, pliable or firm, they can be pink or violaceous or become white. Often, we will take a biopsy of the sore or scarred area to determine the exact cause (if bacterial or fungal) and also to examine the health of the hair follicles to ascertain the severity of the condition.
Androgenic alopecia is a hereditary form of hair loss that can be seen in both males and females.
It is more common in men then women; about 25% of men begin to bald by the time they are 30 and two thirds are bald by the time they are 60 years old.
Androgenic alopecia in males is characterized by hair loss that begins in the temples and crown.
Female hair loss is limited to thinning at the front, the sides of the head and the crown.Alopecia areata is an auto-immune disease of unknown cause. Thyroid disorders, both hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism may cause this pattern of hair loss. Certain hair styles that pull on the hair (braids, ponytails) and hair treatments can cause hair loss.Poor nutrition such as low protein intake associated with certain diets or iron deficiency may cause hair loss.
Chemotherapy or radiation therapy may cause hair loss, but hair re-growth occurs after cessation of treatment. During pregnancy hair growth increases, however after delivery hair loss may occur and last up to 6 months.Fungus infections of the scalp, also known as ringworm can cause hair loss. Siblings may need to be checked for any scalp infections.Psychological disorder such as trichotillomania may also present with hair loss.
Although most commonly seen in children, trichotillomania can also be seen in adults.People who experience hair loss should see their doctor as soon as possible.
