It is important to envision the body as a machine. Like any machine, the longer it runs, the more wear and tear occurs – wear and tear that often is visible on the skin. Over time, damage from sun, wind, free radicals, and pollutants also give skin a weathered, leathery appearance.
If you’re unsure how to counter this damage, OC Skin Institute wants to help. Whether you need Botox, Fillers, Peels, or Lasers, Dr. Nakhla will provide you with a customized treatment regime.
Dr. Tony Nakhla consults with many patients everyday, just like you, who are seeking solutions to wrinkles, sun spots, and damaged skin. OC Skin Institute makes the solution simple and affordable with Global Skin Rejuvenation Packages. Rather than seeing a nurse or aesthetician, Dr. Nakhla performs all the procedures himself, so you will be seeing an experienced, professional, Board Certified Dermatologist.

When you see someone on the street or on television that has a frozen face, asymmetric eyebrows, drooping eyelids, or other bad results from Botox, the treatment was most likely administered by a non-professional. Other reported cases of severe side effects occurred from treatments by non-professionals as well.
Botox injections are medical treatments that require the services of a physician, preferably a board-certified dermatologist or a qualified professional working in a board-certified specialist’s office. These physicians have extensive residency training in cosmetic procedures and must fulfill continuing education requirements to stay up to date on the latest treatments.
Doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals who dabble in cosmetic procedures and have not received formal training are not experts in Botox treatments. Also, do not trust facilities where the doctor is “off site” and the facility is simply using that doctor’s medical license to allow nurses, medical assistants, non professionals, or untrained, unsupervised injectors to administer treatments.
Be sure to choose a doctor you like and trust. To preserve a wrinkle-free appearance, you will need treatments every three to five months, so you will be spending time with your doctor. Comfort level is important.
At OC Skin Institute, all cosmetic treatments are performed by Dr. Tony Nakhla himself. You will receive professional, personalized, natural-looking results by the most sought-after celebrity doctor. Call OC Skin Institute for a complimentary consultation today: (714) 547-6111

A new study published in the journal Mayo Clinic Proceedings found the incidence of melanoma in young adults is soaring, with a six-fold increase in the past 40 years. The rise is particularly noteworthy in young females aged 18 to 39, where the incidence of melanoma increased eight-fold from 1970 to 2009, and four-fold in young adult males.
Although the study didn’t examine why the numbers have increased, gender-specific behaviors such as tanning — a popular activity among young women — may be behind this alarming trend. “The number one thing – stop going to go tanning beds,” says board-certified dermatologist Dr. Tony Nakhla. “All correlations point towards that as the reason for the increase.”
Call OC Skin Institute today for a skin cancer screening with Dr. Nakhla. Don’t wait until it’s too late. Better safe than sorry. (714) 547-6111

A lot of us take care of our faces, but forget about our aging hands. Next to your face, your hands are probably the most visible parts of your body. The earliest signs of aging will show on your hands. The skin on the back of your hands is extremely delicate. This skin is very, very thin, as there is almost no fat under it at all, which is why the veins are so visible. As we grow older, any fat that is there lessens and the skin becomes dry and loose, exposing the veins even more. As if that’s not enough, we begin to develop ugly age spots and sunspots. Your hands need extra care because they’re always doing so much for us and, unfortunately, so often taken for granted. Knowing how to maintain your hands as you age is the best way to make sure they look your best and that you, in turn, look your youngest.
While aging of the hands usually begins in the 40s or 50s with discoloration and age spots, hands can begin to show signs of aging earlier if they are repeatedly exposed to the sun without proper protection. By the 50s and 60s, people may begin to lose volume in their hands making prominent veins and tendons more noticeable.
The good news is that there are preventative topical measures you can utilize to slow the signs of aging on your hands. Filler and laser treatments are also valuable options. Call OC Skin Institute today for a complimentary cosmetic consultation with Dr. Tony Nakhla: (714) 547-6111

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the U.S.
“My moles look strange. Could they be cancerous?” THEY COULD! Every year, more people than ever before are diagnosed with skin cancer. What should you watch for?
1. Slow-growing pink bumps on your skin that crust over & bleed
2. Raised wart-like growths that form ulcers
3. Multi-colored moles with uneven borders or moles that change size, shape, or color
If you spy any of these growing anywhere on your body – and yes, you should check your skin often for these signs – make an appointment with a dermatologist. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends that everyone be examined for skin cancer once a year.
For more information, or to schedule a skin cancer screening, call OC Skin Institute at (714) 547-6111.

Dermabrasion and its lighter-weight sibling, microdermabrasion, are surgical scraping treatments that smooth out skin. You may be a candidate if you have: many fine wrinkles, deep acne scars, precancerous growths, skin that needs to be cleared of blackheads or debris, and/or acne.
Microdermabrasion freshens skin by a process that combines gentle abrasion with suction to remove the outer layer of skin. Dermabrasion, a more aggressive procedure that removes deeper layers, improves scarred skin, and smoothes wrinkles.
Both dermabrasion and microdermabrasion treatments must be performed by a qualified, experienced professional in the office of a board-certified dermatologist. These treatments require specialized, sterile equipment. Treatments take about 15-30 minutes and range in price from $50-$100 for microdermabrasion and $100-$300 for dermabrasion.
Sometimes these treatments are used alone; sometimes they work better with chemical peels or other treatments. Speak with your dermatologist to learn whether you are a good candidate for microdermabrasion or dermabrasion.
You can schedule a complimentary cosmetic consultation with Dr. Tony Nakhla at OC Skin Institute by calling (714) 547-6111. Three convenient Orange County locations: Laguna Niguel, Santa Ana, and San Clemente.

Please—never pick at your face with your nails, needles, or any other sharp object. This behavior is not only neurotic, but also extremely destructive to your skin. Many people with permanent acne scars have caused the scars themselves due to picking. Don’t do it.
Turn to a professional. Board-certified dermatologists and licensed aestheticians, using specialized, sterile instruments, can remove blackheads and skin debris for you. Think about it. You wouldn’t trust yourself to remove your own gallbladder, so don’t perform minor surgery on your skin.
Who among us hasn’t stood in front of a mirror and pondered popping, picking, or probing a problematic pimple? Make an appointment with Dr. Tony Nakhla, or your local skin care professional before trying to treat yourself, which may be more detrimental. OC Skin Institute has 3 convenient locations in Orange County to serve you: Laguna Niguel, Santa Ana, and San Clemente. Call us today! (714) 547-6111
