ALASTIN Skincare Products

Alastin Restorative eye cream 2 - ALASTIN Skincare ProductsAt Suncoast Skin Solutions, we study the safety, results, and formula of the skin care products we recommend. ALASTIN Skincare is a line that is sold only by physicians to ensure quality results based on the patient’s skin and procedure history. ALASTIN makes products for use prior to and after procedures performed in our Florida locations. They also offer a daily skincare line to support skin repair and prevention of damage.

All products are paraben-free (no preservatives) and gluten-free (no wheat). Why does this matter? There are some studies that indicate parabens may have ill-effects on our bodies, including skin. ALASTIN decided to remove parabens for precautionary health reasons. Removing gluten helps our patients with celiac disease and those who are gluten-sensitive or intolerant.

They also do not experiment on animals and believe in cruelty-free testing of products.

Telehealth for Dermatology Patients

telehealth digital healthcare - Telehealth for Dermatology Patients

What is Telehealth?

Telehealth is a program that allows patients and doctors to connect electronically and engage in a digital healthcare visit. An iPhone, Android phone, a desktop computer, tablet, or laptop can all access Telehealth. A camera and microphone are required for computer access. Telehealth is increasingly becoming a popular solution for patients to receive care with no contact. Initially, Telehealth was designed to reach people living in remote areas. Now it is a convenient option to provide medical care and advice without exposing patients to the risk of viral spread.

Benefits of Telehealth

The option to use Telehealth has a number of benefits for the patient.

  • This software application saves time for patients and physicians. Patients do not have to travel to our dermatology office to meet with their doctor. Instead they can experience all the care of a visit from their own home for certain conditions. This saves time, reduces travel and traffic, and eliminates the risk of coming in contact with Covid-19. It is estimated that the time for a traditional visit including transportation required 120 minutes, compared to 16 minutes using Telehealth.
  • Patients experience elevated engagement using remote monitoring. Doctors or their designated staff can check in on patients regularly to monitor progress in treatment and care at home.
  • Some patients will be able to receive dermatological care who previously did not have access. Some patients in remote areas are not able to drive to visit their dermatologist. Other patients have issues with transportation or have time constraints that preclude them from visiting a dermatologist.
  • Patients show up to Telehealth appointments more frequently. Because travel times and traffic delays are eliminated, patients are able to keep their Telehealth appointments more often, when they may have had to cancel a traditional visit, due to a conflict.

Skin Conditions Treated

The dermatologists at Suncoast Skin Solutions use Telehealth for visits related to the following skin conditions:

  • Spot check evaluation for possible biopsy – no TBC
  • Acne
  • Rash eval and follow up
  • Eczema/Psoriasis
  • Wound check without suture removal
  • Bx proven rechecks (patient needs ruler)
  • PDT/5FU follow up or reactions
  • Mohs surgery consults for skin cancer treatment
  • Hair Loss
  • Hyperhidrosis
  • Impetigo/skin infections
  • Lice
  • Scabies
  • Melasma
  • Molluscum/warts-can evaluate and treat with prescription topical
  • Sunburns and minor burns

Skin Care Appointments

Telehealth allows patients to consult with dermatologists from their own homes. It is a viable solution to avoiding exposure to Covid-19 while still receiving needed healthcare.

To set up a Telehealth appointment to see a dermatologist in Florida, call 844-786-3376.  Suncoast Skin Solutions is Florida’s “Most Trusted” Dermatology. Each of our locations has a dermatologist on site to evaluate psoriasis and offer treatment options.

Does Rosacea Ever Go Away?

men women rosacea photos - Does Rosacea Ever Go Away?When a rosacea diagnosis is received, one of the most frequent questions is whether it is a permanent condition. That is usually followed by the patient asking about whether flare-ups can be avoided or delayed with treatment.

The good news is there are some things rosacea patients can do themselves to control the condition and other protocols that can be administered or prescribed by a dermatologist.

Avoiding Triggers

Different factors may cause flare-ups.

The following is a list of rosacea triggers. It is not a complete list, as triggers vary by patient.

Temperature and Weather-Related Triggers

  • Freezing temperatures
  • Hot temperature (indoors or outdoors)
  • Humidity
  • Sipping hot drinks
  • High winds
  • Sun exposure
  • Eating hot foods (temperature)

Emotional Triggers

  • Stress
  • Embarrassment or heightened emotion
  • Anxiety

Product Triggers

  • Some skin care products
  • Hair spray
  • Makeup
  • Prescription or over-the-counter medicine
  • Covid-19 face masks

Other Triggers

  • Exercise and heavy lifting
  • Alcohol consumption, especially red wines, champagne, and beer
  • Spicy food consumption
  • Citrus fruits
  • Sour cream Withdrawal from caffeine
  • Menopause
  • Dairy consumption (yogurt, sour cream, cheese)
  • Persistent coughing

According to the National Rosacea Society’s patient survey, the most common triggers include exposure to the sun, stress, and hot weather. Identifying and avoiding one’s rosacea triggers will help reduce symptoms. For instance, if you know drinking alcohol causes a flare-up, realize that before you drink. Avoid drinking if possible. If a makeup product irritates your skin or causes your redness or bumps related to rosacea, discontinue its use immediately. Rosacea patients often will keep a log and track when flare-ups occur and what preceded them. They track which foods and beverages were consumed and the temperature of those foods, the names of the medicines they took, how they managed stress, new products they used, and any other changes in diet or exposures. After reviewing the log over several weeks or months, triggers usually can clearly be identified.

To answer the question, “Does rosacea ever go away?”

Rosacea does not go away. It can go into remission and there can be lapses in flare-ups. Left untreated, permanent damage may result.[1] This damage can be serious as it can affect a patient’s eyes and cause skin redness permanently.

Treatments can help make the condition go away for longer periods of time. According to research cited by the National Library of Science and conducted by the Journal of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology, remission durations can be lengthened with treatments of topical creams. Other treatments also have shown promising results in extending remission times, reducing redness, and getting rid of rosacea bumps.

Suncoast Skin Solutions is Florida’s “Most Trusted” Dermatology. Each of our locations has a dermatologist on site to treat rosacea.
