Excessive exposure to the sun makes a person look older than he/she really is. Premature wrinkling and skin damage from sun exposure is also called photoaging. Photoaging, unlike natural aging, results in coarse, dry skin, freckling, brown spots (lentigines), skin discoloration, enlarged and/or blood vessels, leathery skin and deep wrinkles.
Photoaging caused by the sun is partially preventable. We recommend SPF 15 for routine sun exposure, and higher if under heavy sun, if in the sun for prolonged periods of time, or if in equatorial climates.
Superficial wrinkles, brown spots and freckles can be improved with over-the-counter and topical prescription creams as well as in-office chemical peels and laser resurfacing treatments. Deeper wrinkles can be improved with filler injections, while forehead lines, frown lines and smile lines all can be treated with Botox injections.
Dr. Channing Barnett is an excellent dermatologist. Professional, knowledgeable, personable and never keeps you waiting or rushes you. I would refer any friend or family member to Dr. Barnett. She is truly a great dermatologist!
I have been a patient of Dr. jay Barnett for about 20 years. I have been so happy with the care I get in the office. Then I met Dr. Channing and she is a plus to the office. I have sent at least 10 new patients including my 88 year-old mom. Need I say more about a great father and daughter team.
I went to Dr. Barnett because I have been experiencing horrible adult acne for the past three months. I tried every product from drugstore topical treatments, expensive designer or name brand products, and was prescribed some antibiotics and a topical cream, but nothing was working. It had all been very stressful and I felt like I lost all my self-confidence and was desperate to try something that would work.
I just want to say how pleased I am with my procedure! Dr. Jay Barnett did an excellent, precise job with the silicone injections into my acne scars. I can finally walk around with confidence. This had done wonders for my self image. I only wish we took after pictures to see the mind blowing difference
Dear Dr. Channing Barnett, The internet has made searching for a doctor much easier. We can research a doctor's education, experience, location and review comments made by other patients. Still, there is a lot of luck involved in selecting the right doctor. I was very lucky. From the moment I walked through the door of Barnett Dermatology, I knew I made the right choice. Great doctor! Great team. Not only would I highly recommend Barnett Dermatology, but I am planning to go back myself. Thanks for being you
