Skin care: Oily skin may be do to hormones and over aggressive washing of the skin. At times, when the skin is dried from soap and washing vigorously the oil glands become irritated and secrete more oil.

What are the best skin care products to preserve young looking skin per price point (expensive, moderate, cheap)?

Physician Prescribed: Without mentioning any brand names as I don't believe this is the forum for that sort of thing. I would strongly recommend a prescription-based product line.

Ask your plastic surgeon or derm if they carry it, you will be happy. ...Read more

Benzoyl peroxide: Exfoliating acne is best done with benzoyl peroxide. It's effective and well tolerated for most people. Start with a low strength and increase if needed. With stubborn acne, add a second product with a different active ingredient, such as salicylic acid, alpha-hydroxy acid, or sulfur. All exfoliate well.

Dermatologists: currently, what is the most long lasting proven filler for deep forehead wrinkles that doesn't result in nodules under the skin?

Dermatologists: currently, what is the most long lasting proven filler for deep forehead wrinkles that doesn't result in nodules under the skin?

Weaken muscle first: When dealing with horizontal forehead lines, it is recommended to first weaken the forehead with some botox. The wrinkles are caused by active muscle motion, so even if you put filler in there, the lines will still show because the frontalis muscle can contract. First have your forehead injected and wait until the Botox works. Then you can use a softer ha filler like belotero or juvederm ultra. ...Read more

What is the life span of pantoea on the skin? My dermatologist swabbed my cystic acne and this bacteria was the result. Did it cause the acne?

Uncertain: Pantoea (Enterobacter) agglomerans is a gram negative bacteria which is is found on plants, in soil and feces and occasionally causes human infection. Of the 1000 species of bacteria that can be found on skin, Pantoea is much less commonly found than several other bacteria. I couldn't find reference to it causing acne but it's possible. Since bacteria multiply there is no "life span" as such. ...Read more
