Dermatology is an area of medicine that focuses on the health as well as diseases of the skin. The skin is the largest organ of the body and has many vital and important functions and the skin is our first line of defense. As board certified dermatologists, we are experts in all aspects of skin care and we specialize in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of skin cancer and hundreds of skin diseases. Through extensive continuing education we actively stay current in the latest treatments of diseases of the skin, hair and nails. We feel it is a privilege to care for our patients and we feel honored in the trust our patients have placed in us.
What is important for good skin care? What is the minimum you can do to look younger and healthier? The cosmetic industry spends billions of dollar every year on both advertising skin care products and producing skin care products trying to convince you and me that each and everyone of their products is necessary to look younger. Are they necessary and what is the truth?
At Norris Dermatology and Lasers NW our licensed facility and very experienced staff provides expert cosmetic/laser treatments in Portland. Many cosmetic procedures, such as laser, chemical peels, tretinoin (Retin-A) and skin bleaching, can effectively improve the appearance of fine wrinkling, discolorations and mild surface irregularities by gently removing the top layer of skin and rejuvenating the underlying layers for a restored appearance.
Our laser treatments are minimally invasive and there is little, if any, downtime after the treatment. In some cases redness lasts for just a couple hours. Some patients may experience mild swelling, discoloration and discomfort in the treated area for a week.
If you are in need of a simple and quick daily skin care routine that will take only minutes, then do not look any further because these four products are what you have been searching for. This is all you need! The cleanser, moisturizer, mineral powder, and lip protectant have each been developed by Dr. Norris to be used on all skin types (normal skin, acne prone skin, sensitive skin, etc).
The AB Skincare team is launching a campaign to start a new approach to skin care which is less is more: once a day washing with a non-irritating pH balanced cleanser, simple light moisturizer to hydrate, zinc/titanium mineral powder for sunburn prevention and a lip protectant. That’s it! That’s all you need to clean and protect the skin from sun damage. Please check out our products page for more complete information about each product and feel free to reach out to us with any questions.
