How GoodRX WorksPrescription drug pricing is confusing at best and infuriating at worst. A once inexpensive generic medication can suddenly cost a small fortune. Fortunately, GoodRx can help! This free-to-use website and app provide coupons for commonly prescribed drugs that you can use independent of your insurance plan. The coupons are accepted at nearly every pharmacy in the country! Download the app or grab a business card when you check-out. It’s easy to use and can save you $$$.

Chemical Peels

Around here, fall means the start to chemical peel season! After weeks and months of sun and fun, sometimes our skin needs a refresh. Chemical peels are a great way to peel away the damage done by the sun. Drs. Baucom & Mina will formulate a plan just for you to keep you skin healthy, rejuvenated, and gorgeous! Check out the American Academy of Dermatology’s blog for more info on chemical peels, or here on our website.

Coronavirus Update- the Delta variant and what you need to know to stay safe

AAD Summer ConferenceThe Summer American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) in Tampa was a chance for dermatologists to convene together for the first time in almost 2 years. We were fortunate to have Dr. Julie Gerberding, MD, MPH, the first woman director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and current Executive Vice President of Merck, as our Keynote Speaker.

Her talk on ‘Pandemic Prospects: Virus and Variants vs Vaccines and Vigilance’ was eye opening and educational. Here are some take away points from her talk that is touted by scientist and COVID experts nationwide.

• The rate of ‘breakthrough’ infections in vaccinated individuals requiring hospitalization is 0.002% out of the 160 million fully vaccinated individuals in the U.S. -> making the vaccination efficacy rate 99.998%. We like those odds!

• When the virus replicates, it mutates which is how we have the Delta variant. Preventing transmission through vaccination is key…and until we have higher vaccination rates, we must mask and social distance as well.

CDC chart

With protection from the vaccine (green bar to right), you have:

  • An 8-fold reduction in infections with COVID
  • A 25-fold reduction in hospitalization
  • A 25-fold reduction in death

***With the delta variant specifically, you have

  • A 3x reduction in infection
  • A 10x reduction in severe disease

Ripped Earlobe Repair

Check out our latest video on YouTube showing a ripped earlobe repair and repiercing surgery. For those with torn or stretched earlobes, there is treatment. Under local anesthesia, Drs. Baucom & Mina will restore the earlobe to a normal shape and then repierce in a way designed to keep earrings upright and supported. Check us out on YouTube and be sure to ‘like’ and subscribe to our channel (Baucom & Mina Derm Surgery).
