Back-To-School Skin Care

Back to School Wording in Colored Pencil Atlanta GA

Back-to-school season is upon us. As you run around to gather school supplies and new outfits, don’t forget about investing in the right skin care supplies. Whether you have a young child or college bound teen, there are skin care products to ensure your family maintains healthy and beautiful skin through the new school year.

Elementary Children
If you have a younger child who is still in elementary school, it’s a good idea to give their skin a good check before sending them back to school. Whether your child has been battling eczema, developed a wart or experiencing a worrisome rash, it is important to let a dermatologist check it out before the school year starts. Pediatric skin conditions can worsen if not treated appropriately and may interfere with your child’s learning day at school. Don’t forget to keep lathering your child up with sunscreen at the start of the school year, as the playground sun is still strong.

Middle School Kids
Pre-teens and tweens are often at the learning stages of how to care for their own skin. It is also a time when the skin experiences drastic changes as hormones surge. Many tweens face areas of dryness or facial breakouts that need attention. This is an excellent age to start a gentle daily cleanser and moisturizer and educate your child about the importance of keeping their face clean. If your teen is suffering from bad acne, it can be very beneficial to see a dermatologist for a more tailored skin care regime – as this can help your teen or tween retain a more confident complexion at school.

Young Adults
Young adults may need to buckle down on their skin care regime too. By now, they should know what type of skin they have – oily, dry, etc – and invest in products that meet their specific needs. If acne is a real concern despite daily cleansing and over-the-counter products, it may be time to see a dermatologist and consider a professional acne treatment such as laser therapy, light therapy, facial or other service. In addition, it is wise to treat facial skin at night with a gentle vitamin A product or AHA salicylic acid to exfoliate and combat breakouts.

Is your child’s skin back-to-school ready? Schedule your skin care checkup at Olansky Dermatology Associates. We proudly offer proven skin treatments for patients through all stages of life, including skin care services specifically designed for children and teens. We don’t want the health or appearance of your skin to jeopardize your child’s experience at school this year.

This was probably the best experience I’ve ever had going to a dermatologist. Every interaction I had with the staff was pleasant and they were so helpful. I had accidentally cancelled my appointment and the girls at the front desk help me get in so I could be seen and someone could help me. Which I really appreciated, most places would have just turned me away. The doctor or pa I saw that day I can’t remember her name was lovely and took great care of me. I will be going to Olansky’s going forward. You will not be disappointed! The staff is excellent!

Dr. Bender honestly changed my life around. I had extremely bad hormonal and cystic acne, and have been told for years that there is nothing I can do but wash my face and etc.. Dr. Bender gave me hope that there is hope she helped get my confidence back and now I’m finally free. She cares about her patients and takes her time with you every visit. If you need help in anything derma-logical then you really need to go to her.

The doctors and PA’s are great and very knowledgeable. I never have to wait to long and the office staff is always very nice. I also take my son there and they are great with him as well. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology.

Kristen R.

Olansky Dermatology is wonderful! Our whole family goes. My daughter has had terrible eczema through the years and both my kids had mollescum too. They always make things better and spend time explaining whats wrong and how to fix it.

Mike D.

I recently had a couple appointments at Olanksy Dermatology and was seen by Julia Lee. Julie was excellent and quickly took care of the issue I was having with my skin. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology and especially Julia Lee to anyone in need of a dermatologist.

I have had excellent experience at Olansky Dermatology. Dr Burger is meticulous and thorough and has a most pleasant and calm manner. I have every confidence in her and this office.

Cheyenne G.

Very kind and understanding people. Dr. Bellamy and her nurse took the time to listen to all my concerns and never made me feel rushed.

Kishan P.

I was actually running a bit late, but they were very friendly and knowledgeable about what was going on with my skin. And also very timely.I will definitely stick with them!

Khol S.

Very professional and pleasant staff. When I arrived at my appointment this afternoon I was informed that my doctor called out sick and they tried calling to let me know but I just recently changed my number so they were unable to reach me. The receptionist was so sweet and helpful. Instead of leaving and making a new appointment they fit me in without an issue and without any waiting.

Susan H.

Dr. Ilyas was highly recommended to me so I decided to change dermatologists. I am so glad as I am pleased with his expertise and his highly professional manner. I am also delighted with Emily Raville, Aesthetician. She does a wonderful job and I am recommending her to my friends as well. I am completely satisfied – can’t get any better than that!
