There is a famous saying, “The mother of all inventions is necessity.” As a plastic surgeon it is often assumed, I love the drama and the sensationalized aspects of plastic surgery. That is so far from the truth. I am often at odds with the plastic surgery community because I hate those type of programs on TV. I hate when plastic surgery is displayed as sensationalized and as a result, I am trying to combat some of the negative aspects in the plastic surgery world that you see on social media and debunk the not realistic expectations. What I mean is, young people doing procedures they should not be doing, women going to random clinics to put fat in their butts and then dying. There are a lot of horror stories that come out of plastic surgery — and when I look at my own practice and I would say a third of my practice is revisional, meaning people are coming back to redo things. I decided I was going to have my own platform and use my own voice to educate people on how to navigate the plastic surgery process in a way that would leave them feeling better and not worse. This program was a birth child of my frustrations and my desire to do something good.

“Rosacea is an inflammatory skin condition that can cause pimples similar to acne as well as broken capillaries that cause flushing and blushing,” explains dermatologist Peterson Pierre, MD, founder of the Pierre Skin Care Institute in Thousand Oaks, California. “It can also affect the eyes, resulting in a dry, gritty sensation, or cause an overgrowth of the oil glands on the nose leading to a deformity.”

There are four types of rosacea, including erythematotelangiectatic rosacea (flushing and redness), papulopustular rosacea or acne rosacea (acne-like bumps with redness), phymatous rosacea (large and red nose), and ocular rosacea (dry, red, burning eyes).

HelloGiggles.com / Dr. Peterson Pierre Here’s What Dermatologists Want You to Know About Tretinoin January 11, 2021

Much like other retinoids, tretinoin is usually not available over the counter and requires a prescription from a board-certified dermatologist. With this in mind, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Peterson Pierre, M.D., recommends asking your dermatologist about Retin-A Micro or Altreno Topical, which are topical creams that use tretinoin as the active ingredient.

“Retin-A Micro uses tretinoin as the main active ingredient in a vehicle that allows for sustained release throughout the day,” Dr. Pierre tells HelloGiggles. “The main benefits include slow delivery of the active ingredient over time while minimizing the side effects of burning, redness, stinging, and irritation. Similarly, Altreno Topical also uses tretinoin, but the vehicle contains collagen, glycerin, and hyaluronic acid, which are all designed to minimize irritation while hydrating and moisturizing the skin.”
