Red wine for acne: Myth or miracle?
According to traditional wisdom, alcohol was considered unhealthy. However, recent research has shown that some alcohol can have health benefits in moderate quantities. We’ve all heard that a glass of red wine can promote heart health. After a study conducted by researchers at UCLA, red wine is back in the news for a different reason – acne treatment.

Researchers tested combinations of resveratrol, an antioxidant contained in red wine, and benzoyl peroxide, one of the most common ingredients in acne treatments. They found both compounds helped kill bacteria, and combining the two created a synergistic effect that enhanced both.

There are already a number of products on the market containing resveratrol. Be sure to consult your dermatologist about which formula is best for your skin type and condition.
The price of aging – and the value of looking younger
No one is happy to see the first signs of lines appearing at the corners of their eyes, as thinning lips, dark spots, and other visible indications of aging. In today’s youth-driven society, an aged appearance can erode your confidence and have a negative effect on your social life. Can it also affect your income?

According to a study by the University of Texas, individuals judged as “average” earned up to ten percent higher salaries than those judged as “plain did, and those judged as “above average” earned an additional five to eight percent.

Of course, this does not mean that cosmetic treatment will guarantee you will get that promotion or land that new client. However, experts suggest that improving your appearance may benefit your professional image in many ways. Perhaps the most important benefit is the boost in confidence that many patients enjoy.
Patient Reviews
Brian Wright
"My experience with Dr. Weaver and his professional staff was unparalleled to any other dermatology practice I have ever been to. From the moment I walked through the door until the time I left everyone in the office was as caring, kind and professional as I have ever seen. Unlike many dermatologists and other types of doctors, he spent plenty of time with me and was happy to answer all of my questions. I would recommend Dr. W Dermatology to my closest friends, my family along with anyone else as they are as professional as the industry offers."
