Adult Acne and You

Acne is one of those things we associate with being a teenager. Unfortunately, for many of us it shows back up in our adult years – sometimes worse than before. It’s been estimated that 1 in 5 women and 1 in 4 men between the ages of 25 – 55 battle with adult acne on a regular basis. All too often, people battling adult acne will go to stores and buy whatever acne treatment is available on the shelves.

Of course many of them have professional makeup artists, but any artist will tell you that without good materials and a great canvas, the art will suffer. So how do you make sure that your skin is as close to a perfect canvas as possible?

Spider or Varicose

We know we need them, but what do we do when our veins start to become unsightly or painful? For countless men and women across the state and throughout the country (truthfully, the world) this has become an issue.  I’m talking about varicose veins and spider veins. Contrary to what many people believe, these two conditions are not the same thing and need to be treated very differently. We will begin by talking about the way you think of your veins in general. If you’re like...

Patients Perspective: Laser Hair Removal

We had such a great response to our last Patient Perspective blog that we’ve decided to do it again, this time focusing on laser hair removal. It’s one of the most common treatments we provide here at Dr. Azar’s office, so much so that it’s typically one of the first procedures new patients come into the office for. This weeks guest blogger will be discussing her experience with laser hair removal on her face and underarms: “I decided to seek laser hair removal because, to put it bluntly, I am naturally very hairy and was getting kind of tired of...

Patients Perspective: Dermal Fillers

It’s pretty common for a first time patient or potential first time patient to have questions about a procedure. As doctors and medical staff, most of the staff at Dr. Azar’s office has had at least one of the procedures we offer. Having said that, we fully understand that it’s often better to hear from a patient than it is to hear it from a medical professional. With that in mind, we will be bringing in guest bloggers from time to time to share their experiences with you. This week, our guest blogger will be discussing her experience receiving a dermal filler...

Hidradenitis

Hidradenitis Suppurativa has been referred to as “the hidden plague” and with good reason. It’s one of those chronic conditions that people tend not to discuss if they have it. So many people are quiet about it that it’s been estimated that as many as 50% of people with this condition have no idea what it is or that they have it. So what is it? Hidradenitis is a chronic skin condition that causes rashes, acne, and cysts in certain areas of the body. They tend to happen in areas where the body folds or rubs and in areas where there is an abundance of sweat...
