Important Info About Fillers & Vaccine

Current ASDS guidance regarding dermal fillers and the vaccine are as follows:

  • Dermal filler inflammatory events very seldom occur with both hyaluronic acid and non-hyaluronic acid fillers.
  • Evidence suggests these reactions can be immunologically triggered by viral and bacterial illness, vaccinations (i.e., influenza vaccine) and dental procedures.
  • These rare adverse events are temporary and respond to treatments. 
  • Patients already treated with dermal fillers should not be discouraged or precluded from receiving vaccines of any kind. Patients who have had vaccines should not be precluded from receiving dermal fillers in the future.

Patients can get their filler two weeks before their vaccine.  We are recommending patients wait two weeks after their second vaccination.

Please call us with any questions and remember a history of prior dermal fillers does NOT prevent one from being vaccinated.

Breaking Out From Masks?

In addition to the heat and sweat we normally experience during these summer months, we have seen an increase in the number of acne and rosacea flare ups. On top of that, “Maskne” is now a thing! “Maskne” — the new facial acne caused from wearing our masks during this global Coronavirus pandemic.

We have found POLY Go – a handheld, portable LED light therapy device that has helped clear these jawline breakouts. Please call our office if you would like to purchase a device!

Additionally, she covers different forms of treatment and modalities for hand rejuvenation.

Today is Melanoma Monday!

Friendly reminder as this is the usual prep time for Dr. Madfes and her mother-daughter Skin Cancer, Take a Hike!  Melanoma is highly treatable when caught early!  This is why it’s important to familiarize yourself with the ABCDEs of Melanoma as seen in the chart below for skin cancer prevention and early detection.

As the warmer weather starts to seep in, you may find yourself heading outdoors to get some fresh air while still practicing social distancing measures!

Here are some tips on how to reduce the risk of sun exposure:

  • SEEK SHADE: the sun’s rays are the strongest between 10AM-2PM
  • WEAR PROTECTIVE CLOTHING: long-sleeved shirt, pants, wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses
  • APPLY SUNSCREEN: SPF 30 or higher (reapply approximately every two hours, even on cloudy days!)
  • VITAMIN D: healthy diet that may include vitamin D supplements

If you find any new or suspicious spots on your skin, or any spots that are changing, itching or bleeding, please contact a board-certified dermatologist.
