Hi Dr. Lam How r Things. It's Rob.Great job with the Botox I just saw on the net an early morning show (forget the name) with a clip on Retinoids. They Sound like they have many amazing uses for the skin, specifically on aging. What is your opinion, plus and minus. I heard they can dry out the skin. Sounds counter-intuertive. Why have u never mentioned them? I heard only the perscription strength really works. Can your patients get a perscription through your office? Thank for your time.
Hi Rob, Retinoids are great. I probably should prescribe more retinoids to tell you the truth. I basically use lighter glycolic products, etc. that my aestheticians take care of for me. However, since you are my patient, I would be happy to help you with a prescription. Just make sure you stay out of the sun with retinoids. They can be dangerous. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org with your pharmacy #. Best, SML
Can u give me the name of what u think is the best product for me or will Constance take care of that. I do have pretty dry skin; will that effect which product I take, as in not allowing me to take the most effective product
hey big man, to be honest, i really don't keep up with retinoids. i believe renova may be better for dry skin. best case scenario you ask your dermatologist. they really know this stuff better than i do. however, again since you are my patient, whatever i can do to help, i would be more than happy to. best, sml
I hope u don't respond to this tonight, as I' m sure u have surgury in the morning it being a friday.One last question for now. When i come back in a few months for botox, and if Im deep in "THE DIP", is it ok to use a dose of restylane for around the eyes to bridge the gap between "THE DIP" and when the grafts come to life?
