Nighttime Skin Care Tips from Physicians at Lakes Dermatology


Proper skin care does not end when the sun goes down

When the topic of skin care comes up, it is usually discussed with protecting oneself during the day from the harmful UV rays of the sun. Dire warnings are issued about covering up while venturing outdoors, staying inside during the hottest part of the day, and to be sure to apply sunscreen on a regular basis. Such tips are quite helpful, but most individuals tend to neglect another important area of skin care: the nighttime. Licensed dermatologists, such as Dr. F. Victor Rueckl of Lakes Dermatology, will stress to their clients that a skin care regimen should also be followed when one is getting ready for bed just as much for when heading out to the beach.

People have long talked about getting enough "beauty sleep" every night, but the reality is that the night is an important time for one's skin. A person's body uses the nighttime to restore the skin, such as through the regeneration of skin cells, after a long day of wear and tear. In fact, the Andersen-Gratton study of how the circadian clock impacts metabolism and cells showed that new skin cells grow faster while a person sleeps. (1)

Experienced medical professionals, such as Dr. James Q. Del Rosso of Lakes Dermatology in Las Vegas, note that a person should do everything possible to help one's skin during this crucial period. One thing that individuals can do is to make sure that the skin is receiving the nourishment that it needs during the night. A useful product to use at night is Resveratrol B E from SkinCeuticals, which neutralizes free radicals, strengthens the skin's natural antioxidant defenses, and diminishes visible signs of aging.

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

Chemical sunscreens are proven to provide better protection

Really50SunscreenThe 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)

Summer Skin Care Protection Tips from Dr. F. Victor Rueckl of Lakes Dermatology

Sensible precautions can prevent summer skin care issues

shutterstock 188183420As April showers are set to bring May flowers, summer is just around the corner. Summer means a lot of different things to people. For children, it means a welcome respite from school and the ability to play all day and night. Parents often lament the coming of summer as they will have to find supervision for their children or watch the little tykes themselves. Summer also means trips to the beach, backyard cookouts, fireworks on the Fourth of July, and even perhaps going on the family vacation. While summer is definitely considered the fun season, it can also be treacherous when it comes to one's skin. The sun's rays may be life-giving, but they can also be punishing to one's skin. Experienced dermatologists, such as Dr. F. Victor Rueckl of Lakes Dermatology in Las Vegas, help their patients to protect themselves by offering some skin care protection tips to safely navigate them through the summer season.

Winter Can be Abusive to Skin, But Dr. F. Victor Rueckl of Lakes Dermatology Has Helpful Skincare Suggestions

Winter can be exceptionally harsh on one's skin For many people, winter can be a magical time of the year as the landscape becomes coated in a crisp layer of festive snow. Winter is a time where people slow their pace down, enjoy some hot chocolate or cider by a picturesque fire, and engage in seasonal activities like skiing and building snowmen. Most individuals turn their attention to indoor pursuits due to the inclement weather and the fact that the average amount of daylight during winter is under twelve hours. (1) While the most consideration that one normally gives to the winter months is how cold it may get, experienced dermatologists, such as Dr. F. Victor Rueckl of Lakes Dermatology in Las Vegas, warn that winter can be exceptionally rough on a person's skin. Fortunately, there are proven methods to protect one's skin during this frigid season.

Restylane Silk

restylogoA Smile Can Be Impacted By Unsightly Wrinkles and Lines, But Dr. F. Victor Rueckl Notes That Restylane Silk Can Make A Major Difference

Lakes Dermatology is one of the only offices in Nevada to offer this new FDA-approved dermal filler treatment

One of the most important factors in maintaining a healthy, youthful appearance is to have a brilliant smile. A nice smile can light up someone's face with a healthy glow and put others at ease. When people converse with one another, their eyes are automatically drawn to the mouths of other people as they talk. That is why so many people are self-conscious about the quality of their smiles. When one thinks of ways to improve a smile, the initial thought is always dentistry. In fact, a whopping 87% of those who had a cosmetic dentistry procedure performed did so in order to improve their physical attractiveness as well as their self-esteem. (1) However, there are other ways to improve a smile, such as smoothing out the wrinkles and lines around the mouth that naturally occur as a person ages. A newly approved product, Restylane Silk, is now hitting the market and was specifically designed for subtle lip enhancement for patients that are over 21 years of age.

Restylane Lyft® - What Is It and How Will It Work?

Galderma announced the FDA approval of Restylane® Lyft for cheek augmentation and the correction of age-related midface contour deficiencies late last week. So what is this exciting new product? Well......it’s basically Perlane®, which has been available for years, but rebranded. Perlane® is a hyaluronic acid filler that was used mainly in the nasolabial fold areas, but was also used in the central face area for adding volume to the cheeks. It is a thicker HA filler than its sister product, Restylane®.
