New FDA-Approved Kybella Melts Away the Double Chin Notes Dr. F. Victor Rueckl of Lakes Dermatology

Kybella6Men are flocking to dermatologists to take advantage of Kybella

Most individuals who seek to maintain a youthful appearance tend to pay particular attention to the face, such as the areas around the eyes and mouth. A lot of concern is focused on combating the fine lines and wrinkles that will pop up as one gets older, but another important facet of one's overall facial area is often overlooked: the neck. As one gets older, the skin for the neck area loses its elasticity, causing it to sag and droop. This issue is compounded if one is overweight as the dreaded double chin appears. In fact, a 2015 American Society for Dermatologic Surgery Consumer Survey on Cosmetic Dermatologic Procedures found that a full 67% of those polled were somewhat to extremely bothered by excess fat under the chin/neck. (1) Now a new FDA-approved injectable treatment, Kybella, has gotten experienced dermatologists, such as Dr. F. Victor Rueckl of Lakes Dermatology of Las Vegas, excited about its proven results in treating fat cells under the chin.


Dr. F. Victor Rueckl of Lakes Dermatology Commends Consumer Reports; Study on Physical and Chemical Sunscreens

The summer season is almost here, much to the joy of schoolchildren everywhere. Summer brings a lot of fun activities: fishing, backyard grilling, picnics, family vacations, trips to the beach, and so on. Another feature of summer that most older people are familiar with is sunburn. In generations past, getting a sunburn was considered a normal rite of passage for enjoying the summer as a child, but the negative consequences of getting a sunburn are now well known. There are over 5.4 million cases of nonmelanoma skin cancer cases treated every year in the USA, and about 90% of nonmelanoma skin cancers are associated with exposure to UV rays from the sun. (1)


GETTING CORRECT DIAGNOSIS IS FIRST STEP IN DEALING WITH DISCOMFORT OF ECZEMA

Eczema has been called “the itch that rashes.”

The terms eczema and dermatitis are often used interchangeably to describe a reaction pattern of the skin that creates itching, redness and rashes. There are different types of eczema. Many people are familiar with the contact dermatitis rash that appears when they get too close to such things as poison ivy or certain chemicals. But for the more that 30 million people in the United States who are afflicted with atopic dermatitis, also called atopic eczema, a rash is more than a rash. It is the most common type of eczema, affecting 1 in 5 infants and young children, according to the National Institutes of Health.

The saying, “The best thing you can do for your health is pick your ancestors,” rings true when it comes to this type of eczema.


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.

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.
