What Will You Do For Your Skin This Year?

Woman With Beautiful Skin Posing Atlanta GA

It’s the beginning of a brand new year. Now is the time that many people are sitting down to create a list of goals for 2019. The majority of these New Year’s resolutions include ways to improve one’s health or their appearance. Have you ever considered that taking care of your skin can accomplish both? At Olansky Dermatology, we encourage you to set goals to improve your skin health this year. In turn, you are likely to find that you look more attractive and feel better too!

Here are some excellent ideas for better skin health in 2019:

Visit Your Dermatologist Regularly

Not in the habit of scheduling an annual skin check with a dermatologist? It’s time to change your ways. A routine exam from a dermatologist can help you detect minor skin problems before they become uncomfortable and costly to treat. From acne to skin cancer, there are a wide variety of skin conditions that need a professional diagnosis and customized treatment.

Wear Sunscreen

Yes, we know it is winter right now, but you are not off the hook when it comes to sunscreen. The sun shines all year round, which means the harmful effects of UV rays are continually threatening your skin health. Make it a habit this year to apply a broad spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30 before you head outdoors each morning. It’s the best way to prevent skin cancer!

Exfoliate More

You may not know it, but your skin needs a good exfoliation on a regular basis – typically twice a week is sufficient. Exfoliating your skin helps to remove the dead skin cells so that your fresh new skin can shine through. It can also ensure you are maximizing your investment in skin care products, as topical ointments and creams will work better when there is not a dead layer of skin in the way.


This one may already be on your list, and it is not a goal that is easily attainable. Still, you should know that by lowering your stress levels, you can improve your skin health. When you are stressed and anxious, your body releases a cortisol hormone. This can lead to a chain reaction that makes your skin more sensitive and easily irritated from external factors.

Change Your Diet

Establishing a healthier diet can do more than reduce your waistline. Eating more nutritious fruits and vegetables and less processed foods can impact your skin too. Certain vitamins and minerals can boost the integrity and complexion of your skin in many ways. You may also want to watch your alcohol intake, as this can lead to an uneven and red complexion.

Will You Stick to Your Resolutions?

According to research, approximately half of Americans create a New Year’s resolution, but only 8% actually follow through. For the sake of your health as well as your appearance, we urge you to stick to your skin care goals for 2019. Start now by scheduling your routine skin check at Olansky Dermatology in Atlanta.

Ashley A.

Mandy Ramer, NP-C was such a pleasure to meet with. She listened to all of my concerns and addressed each one with a plan that fit my needs. I am so glad I picked Olansky Dermatology. Absolutely thrilled with their service from appointment setting through check out.

Kara E.

The appointment process is quick easy and convenient online. Parking is easy enough. I got in basically right at my appointment time. I didn’t have to wait hardly at all. The doctors and nurses are nice, knowledgeable and helpful. The procedure I had was easy and I got out fast and was on my way.

Suzanne H.

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!

Coriana W.

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.

Jenny S.

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.

Tamima D.

My husband is a patient of PA Sharon Doering I appreciate all she did for my spouse. She’s very down to earth & made him feel comfortable. Sharon communicated in a way that he can understand.
Thank You

Betty G.

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!
