Laser technology has become a preferred option for almost all aspects of medical treatment: dentists use laser to help their patients cosmetic lasermanage gum disease, while ophthalmologists apply laser to improve their patients' vision efficiently and safely. But did you know that your Baton Rouge, LA, dermatologist, Dr. Ann Zedlitz, also offers laser treatment as a solution for a wide variety of cosmetic issues? At Z Aesthetic Dermatology, minimally-invasive cosmetic laser procedures help many of our patients regain their confidence and improve the health of their skin. Here's a couple of the ways we combine laser technology with aesthetic treatments in our practice.

Skin resurfacing

Over time, everyone's skin will begin to show physical signs of aging and environmental damage in the form of redness, brown spots, wrinkles and scarring. But laser resurfacing, offered by your Baton Rouge cosmetic dermatologist, minimizes all of these flaws to give your facial skin a rejuvenated and healthy appearance. The heat of the cosmetic laser not only removes the damaged skin cells; its heat also stimulates the body to produce more collagen, the protein that is the key to youthful-looking skin. Most patients notice at least a 50 percent improvement in the appearance of their skin after just one session.

Hair removal

Unwanted hair, whether it's on your face, your underarms, your bikini area, or your legs, can make you feel self-conscious about your appearance, and temporary hair removal methods such as shaving or waxing can be inconvenient, uncomfortable, and frustrating to repeat. Laser hair removal from your Baton Rouge cosmetic dermatologist, Dr. Zedlitz, eliminates unsightly body hair and the need for repetitive treatments in one easy step! The laser is fine-tuned to only concentrate on the hairs, leaving the surrounding skin untouched. It's an amazing way to have the smooth skin you've always wanted.

These are just two of the many ways we can help you achieve beautiful and healthy skin. To learn more about how cosmetic laser can change your life for the better, contact Z Aesthetic Dermatology in Baton Rouge and Prairieville, LA, to schedule a consultation with Dr. Z today!

New Evidence Shows a Diet Rich in Tomatoes Lessens the Risk of Skin Cancer

You probably know that tomatoes are rich in antioxidants, but now new research is showing these red wonders may have some serious cancer-fighting benefits.

In a study done at the Ohio State University, "daily tomato consumption by mice appeared to cut the development on skin cancer tumors in half," according to ScienceDaily, with the full account appearing in the online journal Scientific Reports.

During the testing, male mice were "fed a diet of 10 percent tomato powder daily for 35 weeks, then exposed to ultraviolet light." On average, the mice that ate the tomato diet experienced "a 50-percent decrease in skin cancer tumors compared to mice that ate no dehydrated tomato."

However, the female mice showed no significant tumor reduction.

"This study showed us that we do need to consider sex when exploring different preventive strategies," said the study's senior author, Tatiana Oberyszyn, a professor of pathology and member of Ohio State's Comprehensive Cancer Center. "What works in men may not always work equally well in women and vice versa."
