An Unforeseen Consequence of the Affordable Care Act Is Losing Access To Dermatologists, According To Dr. F. Victor Rueckl

Switching To Medicare Advantage May Cost Patients' Access To Their Dermatologist


The Affordable Care Act was designed to provide access to medical treatment for every individual. To that end, a grand total of 11.4 million Americans signed up for private health insurance by the end of the second enrollment period. (1) This is tremendous news, but there have been some unforeseen consequences associated with the passage of the Affordable Care Act. Money has been taken from Medicare and used for the implementation of the ACA, and there has been some noticeable effects. One such effect is that many people are choosing to opt out of Medicare and go instead with a Medicare Advantage plan. On paper, such a decision looks like a sound one as the premiums may be lower or that their medical options will be expanded, but many are finding out too late that their network of doctors, especially dermatologists, are being restricted.


Dr. F. Victor Rueckl, Lakes Dermatology, Las Vegas, Cautions That Recent Popular Trends Can Be Dangerous, As Beauty Trends On Social Media Can Go Viral Quickly

The Kylie Jenner challenge can lead to bruising and scarring around the mouth


The reality of modern life is that we're living in a culture that is obsessed with celebrities. Many people follow the lives of various celebrities by reading gossip magazines, watching reality TV shows, and through the use of social media. One of the most popular celebrity clans is the Kardashians, whose recent season premiere episode attracted a total of 2.547 million viewers. (1) While the older sisters of that clan originally made their family a household name, it's the younger Kylie Jenner who has been generating a lot of attention over the last year. One of her key features that people go crazy for is her plump lips, which has led to a Twitter topic where young people attempt to plump their own lips by using a small glass and then sucking. However, this supposed beauty tip can be dangerous, as is attested to by licensed dermatologists, such as Dr. F. Victor Rueckl of Lakes Dermatology in Las Vegas.

It's Normal For People To Have Moles, But Dr. F. Victor Rueckl Recommends Being Aware of Any Changes

Knowing the ABCDE Rule Can Help Save Your Life

We're fortunate enough to live in a time where medical information is widely available and easy to access. With such information at our fingertips, there are times when we can become hyper-sensitive and blow things out of proportion. One such area where people can become unduly concerned is the appearance of moles on one's skin. People are constantly told by public service announcements on tv to be on the lookout for any changes, which can lead some people to worry needlessly over the moles that they have. It is true that melanoma, a type of skin cancer, can grow around or in a mole, but that does not mean that every mole will become cancerous.

Beauty promises are out there by the dozens; on every billboard, in every magazine and between millions of women as a topic of conversation. However, the real question is which promises should one believe? Cindy Crawford wants people to slather their faces with a melon extract created by a French doctor and Oil-of-Olay pledges overnight improvement. The average over-the-counter wrinkle cream works by moisturizing the skin, which subsequently reduces the appearance of fine lines by improving the skin texture. Wrinkle creams also tend to include alpha-hydroxy acids, which help slough away dead skin cells and exfoliate, creating a smoother appearance.
