The difference between a dermatologist and a facial plastic surgeon?
A dermatologist specializes in skincare, while a plastic surgeon specializes in transforming the patients' bodies and faces through invasive and non-invasive treatments. Dermatologists diagnose and treat patients that experience problems with their hair, skin, and nails. They write prescription medications, antibiotics and may refer you to an oncologist for a biopsy if you have cysts or moles.
Alternatively, plastic surgeons are medical surgeons trained to perform laser surgeries, body contouring procedures, transfer of tissues, etc. Plastic surgeons specialize in performing elective dermatology and skin surgery like facelifts, breast augmentations, rhinoplasties, skin grafts, etc. While dermatologists work with their patients to treat an illness or control a disease's spread, facial plastic surgeons use surgical procedures to help patients attain their desired aesthetic appearance.
What creams, lotions, or products should I use on my skin?
Each person has a different skin type, and skin needs will differ from one person to another. Meet with a dermatologist cosmetic skincare specialist for a personal assessment and receive prescriptions and recommendations for creams, lotions, and other skin and hair care products.
In general, you must protect yourself from the sun by wearing hats, sunglasses, and sunscreen lotions to avoid sun damage, risk of skin cancer, and signs of aging on your skin. Moisturize your skin at least twice a day using a non-comedogenic cream and exfoliate your facial skin once or twice a week. Choose a mild soap or a cleanser to wash your face to prevent overdrying your skin, and refrain from washing your face more than once a day. However, if you have oily skin or sweat excessively, or engage in lots of sports, you may need to wash your face twice. You should also use anti-aging products after 30 to prepare your skin to fight the signs of aging. Using products that contain glycolic acid, vitamin C, peptides, retinol, and growth factors may prove beneficial in maintaining healthy and youthful-looking skin.
What is the difference between going to a spa and a clinic for laser hair removal?
When you go to a laser clinic in Winnipeg, your doctor will use a medical-grade laser, which is more safe and effective than the laser equipment used at a spa by an esthetician. Most spas do not have adequately trained personnel and offer inferior quality treatments for lower prices, causing burns, discoloration of the skin, and other side effects.
Our Winnipeg dermatologist uses the most advanced and safe laser equipment to help you eliminate unwanted body hair. Our doctors Ali Esmail and Alexis Botkin, are board-certified physicians with several years of experience to help you achieve your desired results using the most advanced technology and laser treatment.
