Welcome back to What’s New and What to Do. Today we’re visiting Sienna Dermatology in Missouri City, TX as well as talking about different ways you can incorporate wallpaper in your home.
Sienna Dermatology is a full-service dermatology office.
They do general dermatology as well as cosmetic and surgical dermatology. If you need it, they do it including: chemical peels, Botox, fillers and very soon they’ll be adding a laser. They have a skin pen for micro needling.
Again, their primary service is general dermatology for patients starting at infants – all the way to geriatrics. They will help you with acne, warts, rosacea, psoriasis – a full range of skin issues.
You don’t need an appointment if all you need is product. Find them on Highway 6 tucked behind Center Court Pizza (here’s a map).
So what led these two professionals to dermatology?
Southwest Houston native Angel Puryear, M.D. is a board-certified dermatologist out of Texas Tech. That’s where she met Mary Moore, M.D. (more on Dr. Moore below).
As a teenager, Dr. Puryear suffered from severe eczema. It really affected her life and it affected her self-confidence. She spent a lot of time in dermatology offices, and that time inspired her to pursue her future in medicine and the skin.
Dr. Mary Moore, originally from Georgia, went to the Medical College of Georgia and decided to do her residency at Texas Tech.
Skin care tips from Dr. Angel and Dr. Mary
It goes without saying, but then again it really needs to be said. It’s important to be really strict about sun protection during the summer. By protection, it is more than just sunblock. They suggest wearing protective clothing like a broad-brimmed hat, thin long-sleeved shirts as well as pants.
The sunscreens you want to look for nothing less than 30 SPF with the label “broad-spectrum” covering both UVA and UVB rays. Reapply that sunscreen every two hours, and if you’re swimming or sweating you’ll want to reapply even more frequently (every 30-40 minutes).
Finally, try to stay out of the sun between 10am and 2pm. That is when the sun can do the most damage to you and your family’s skin.
But what about existing sun damage?
Antioxidants help our bodies against UV rays. It’s like a second layer of protection under the sunscreen. Dr. Moore suggests some sort of vitamin E or vitamin C serum every morning and some form of Retinol product each night.
Retinol helps turnover your skin a little bit faster as well as fade brown spots and help build in collagen (fine lines and wrinkles).
Now for “What’s New”
Wallpaper can add a lot of personality to a room. The wallpaper you choose depends on, and is a reflection of, your style. There is no end to print options: large and bold or small and subtle.
If you like the idea but are concerned with the cost, think about using wallpaper on an accent wall or in a small bathroom. It can really add a lot of pizzazz to your home.
