One of the newest and most promising techniques is Cryolipolysis™ technology via the Coolsculpting procedure which received FDA-approval for non-invasive reduction fat in September 2010. Cryolipolysis™ cools the targeted fat tissue to break down the fat cells for easy removal without damage to surrounding skin and muscle. The natural repair mechanisms of the body remove the freeze injured cells over a period of months. The results are noticeable and natural looking with a 20% reduction of the fat tissue after a single treatment.
Local dermatologic surgeon Greg Morganroth, president of the California Skin Institute, wants people to pay attention to the latest information from the FDA regarding sunscreens. The FDA’s recent guidelines for manufacturers of sunscreen products highlighted the importance of paying attention to labeling—and going beyond manufacturers’ claims.
Dr. Morganroth and the CSI providers are proud to announce the addition of the San Mateo dermatology practice of board certified dermatologists Susan Wolf, MD and Lynn Sydor, MD. Drs. Wolf and Sydor bring a wealth of medical and cosmetic dermatology skills to CSI and have merged their practice with Susan Butler, MD, a fellowship-trained Mohs surgeon, to create a comprehensive dermatology practice in the heart of San Mateo.
Consider that skin cancers make up nearly half of all cancers diagnosed in the U.S., according to the American Cancer Society, which has designated May as National Skin Cancer Awareness Month. This year more than 2 million people will be diagnosed with skin cancer, including 115,000 with melanoma, and one person will die from skin cancer every hour. Yet research published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology shows that only 8 percent of U.S. workers had a skin exam in the prior year – even though professional skin exams save lives.
