Dr. Cameron Chesnut Wins RealSelf 500 Award

Spokane Dermatological Surgeon Recognized as Top Social Influencer in Cosmetic Medicine

Our own Dr. Cameron Chesnut is one of 500 doctors in the nation to receive the prestigious RealSelf 500 Award, out of nearly 13,000 board certified specialists with a presence on RealSelf—the leading online community helping people make confident choices in elective cosmetic procedures.

In a time when 1 in 4 U.S. adults share their health experiences on social media channels, the medical professionals that made the 2015 RealSelf 500 are recognized both for having an outstanding record of consumer feedback and for providing credible, valuable insights in response to consumer questions about elective cosmetic treatments, plastic surgery, dentistry and more.

Dr. Chesnut is board-certified in dermatology and fellowship-trained in Mohs micrographic surgery, reconstructive plastic surgery, and cosmetic surgery. A leader in the fields of dermatologic and cosmetic surgery, Dr. Chesnut is an award-winning speaker and has been invited by his peers to present nationally on numerous cosmetic and reconstructive topics. He is a regular contributor to the surgical literature, has authored several book chapters, and has been recognized for his research in both dermatologic surgery and lasers.

“In 2015, these 500 doctors collectively impacted tens of millions of consumers, with nearly 30% of our total doctor content posted by this relatively small group,” said Tom Seery, RealSelf founder and CEO. “When I started RealSelf, many doctors questioned why they should ‘give away’ their expertise ‘for free’ on the web. Now, eight years later — and with over one million doctor answers on our platform — we are proud of the standard this select group has set. They're leading the way by empowering millions of consumers to gain access to the information they need to make smart and confident health and beauty decisions.”

Dr. Chesnut is an expert contributor to RealSelf, and to date has posted 212 expert answers to questions on RealSelf. Each month people from all over world ask important aesthetic-related questions, such as "When will the redness and dents from fractional CO2 laser heal?" Dr. Chesnut also maintains a patient star rating of five out of five stars in RealSelf reviews. For the full list of RealSelf 500 Award winners, visit http://www.realself.com/RS500.

Let’s Cut To The Core - Why Do I Need To Use An Epionce Lytic Treatment?

Excerpt from Skin, The Epionce Magazine Spring/Summer 2015

EPIONCE LYTIC TX PRODUCT DISPLAY

Epionce Lytic treatment products, when combined with an Epionce Renewal Facial product for skin type, are the core of the Epionce product line. Yet, there seems to be an air of mystery around the Lytic treatment products. People are not sure how to use them or what benefit they will provide. Let’s pull back the curtain to reveal why the Lytics are a powerful treatment must-have in your skin care regimen.

There are four differ

ent Lytic treatment products to choose from based upon your skin care needs, but each is a crucial step to experience the best results with Epionce. All of the Lytic treatment products clean out the pores and remove excess skin cells. They also have anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties. This combination means that the Lytics are fantastic not only for anti-aging benefits, but also are ideal for reducing symptoms associated with acne and rosacea, as both of these conditions are driven by inflammation in the skin.

Unlike many exfoliating products on the market, the Lytics do not actually damage the skin barrier while cleaning out the pores and removing excess skin cells. This is important because people with more sensitive skin can use the Lytics without aggravation or irritation. Also, most acne products were created with the oily teenager in mind. These products tend to be too harsh and drying for many adults. The Lytics provide the benefits of helping to clear symptoms of acne without drying the skin out.

Since my teenage years, I have struggles with oily and yet sensitive skin. Even as an adult I’ve struggled with the occasional hormonal breakout. My personal favorite, Lytic Sport Tx, was the solution my skin needed. Not only does it help keep acne and oil at bay, but the additional anti-aging benefits are a welcomed plus!

An esthetic practice, especially in a medical facility, is able to offer a variety of clinical state of the art procedures to treat many common skin conditions. In addition to these treatments, a significant contribution must come from care of the skin at home. Our estheticians are able to provide guidance on choosing the right products for your skin type and the conditions which we are trying to resolve.

There is no such thing as perfect skin. Even people with gorgeous skin have trouble sometimes.

Skin is dynamic and changes from time to time, from season to season, and at various times can be dry, oily, combination, or sensitive.

The skin care provider in a professional setting will offer product lines that will:

  • Help improve skin health and protect the barrier function of the skin
  • Promote safe and effective exfoliation and rejuvenation to prevent chronic inflammation
  • Ingredients that promote production of collagen and elastin and can help repair damaged cells
  • Have higher concentrations of active ingredients in a more effective delivery system
  • Products that are backed by true, scientific "gold standard" clinical testing for safety and efficacy

To review, professional products that are available only through skin care providers generally have higher concentrations of active/performance ingredients, have a more effective delivery system, and must be recommended after a thorough skin evaluation and consultation. Products sold over the counter must by necessity be generic and "safe" enough for the general population and therefore cannot as aggressively treat the skin.

A skin consultation will include:

  • Determining skin type: oily, dry, combination, sensitive
  • Determining skin conditions: mature/aging skin, sun damaged, acne prone, melasma, etc.
  • Identifying personal preferences and products currently using
  • Reviewing topical prescriptions: some must be discontinued for a period before resurfacing treatments
  • Reviewing lifestyle: how simple or complex a home regimen will be
  • Identifying climate and seasonal adjustments: skin has different needs depending on environmental factors
  • Identifying current skin care needs: such as preparing for a surgical procedure or treatments
