Dr. Kevin Smith of Charlotte Plastic Surgery joined Good Day Charlotte to discuss the negative effects of blue-light. More specifically he discusses on how it damages the skin and what people can do to prevent this from happening. Evolving research has shown that blue light can be bad for skin. It’s certain that blue light in the 380–400 nm range is problematic, although the risk seems to lessen somewhat toward the top end at 500 nm. Long-term blue light exposure to concentrated sources of blue light energy can cause skin damage, including color changes, inflammation, and weakening of the skin’s surface. Simply put, blue light promotes stressors in skin that cause photo-aging; that is, aging from exposure to light.
Dr. Nyame of Charlotte Plastic Surgery gives his insight on the many devices used for procedures and speaks on the practitioners who utilize them. Our mission is to renew the quality of life and increase the confidence of our patients through restoration, preservation and enhancement of physical form and function. While most devices used for cosmetic enhancements are similar if not entirely the same from practice to practice, it's the person who is using the device that makes the difference. Our estheticians are well versed and experienced in all cosmetic enhancement procedures and have been helping people look their absolute best for years. We want our patients to feel as comfortable as possible before, during and after each procedure. While our estheticians each specialize in the use of a specific device, we make sure that they are comfortable using every device on hand for any type of procedure that our patients undergo. Knowing what tool to use and how best to use it based on the desired outcome and skin type is something our estheticians pride themselves on.

Microneedling is a method that can dramatically enhance your skin’s appearance. It can be used on all skin types. Plus, it can be performed on all parts of the body, including the face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen, and back. Microneedling reverses years of damage by creating tiny punctures in the skin’s surface. This promotes the renewal of collagen and elastin, which revives your skin. We compare it to the effect of a chemical peel, but without the redness or flakiness. Not only is microneedling an easy and comfortable procedure, it’s also quick. At Charlotte Plastic Surgery, we can perform this procedure within 15 to 30 minutes,Plus, the downtime is very minimal. Your skin will be slightly pink anywhere from 24 to 72 hours, and that’s it!
