“I firmly believe that the skin is an indicator of what’s happening inside the body, and truly enjoy educating my patients about their skin care and health.” - Dermatologist Roya Javid
Like the air we breathe, healthy skin is one of life’s essentials. Here at our exclusive Skin Bar at Coastal Valley Dermatology, we make it effortless to love your skin. Routine skin care helps replenish what harsh elements of everyday life take away. Trained medical aestheticians and staff are available to answer all your skin-related questions and provide you with customized cocktails for your skin.
Medical treatment for your skin should be tailored to certain factors, including your ethnicity. Skin of color, including African-American, Hispanic and Asian skin, requires special care and attention by dermatologists. Without proper care, darker skin can be more prone to pigmentation disturbances. To help provide the best dermatological solutions for darker skin, Dr. Roya Javid is an expert in providing dermatology services for African American and other patients with skin of color.
What makes brown skin different from other shades is larger melanosomes, which contain more of the pigment called melanin. This pigment gives the skin its beautiful dark color. It also provides a layer of protection from sun exposure that slows the aging of the skin and helps protect against skin cancer.
When dark skin suffers trauma such as a cut, then the area around the cut will become darker. This discoloration is known as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. As dark skin has special needs, it’s important that extra care is given by a dermatologist who has expertise in ethnic skin conditions. Dr. Roya Javid performs many procedures tailored to dark skin, including light and laser procedures, chemical peels and microdermabrasion. Your skin is beautiful and requires protection. Our team is prepared to treat a wide variety of conditions that affect you and to educate you about the health of your skin.
Taking a close look at your skin is the first step in improving the health of your skin. Our dermatologic approach includes an in-depth personal skin consultation.

Whether your needs are of a cosmetic nature or medical, each and every patient at Coastal Valley Dermatology is cared for as an individual.
"Prejuvenation” is a term growing in popularity in the cosmetic dermatology industry mainly as a result from debates over how young is too young for cosmetic procedures. It is possible that this discussion began in the cosmetic surgery industry, with media reports of very young women opting for contentious surgeries such as breast augmentation. Soon reports surfaced of women in their 20s choosing to have ‘preventative’ cosmetic injections of neuromodulators (such as BOTOX COSMETIC® treatments), which was supported by an article in the JAMA Dermatology journal by two American dermatologists.
In this September 2013 opinion piece, “When is ‘Too Early’ Too Early to Start Cosmetic Procedures?”, the authors take the stance that it is “rarely too early” to start the “conservative and thoughtful use of neuromodulators, fillers, and noninvasive energy-based treatments…”. They point out that wrinkles emerge over time caused by the repetitive folding of the skin from facial expressions. Many people attempt to fix these lines and creases after they are well established, when the best course of action should be to prevent them from occurring in the first place. In an interview with Today.com Health, one of the authors said, “If you slow down the use of these muscles beginning early in adult life, the lines never develop.”
While not all doctors in the aesthetics industry support the approach, most agree that the 20s and 30s are the time when early intervention is key, starting with preventative skin care practices such as a good skin care regimen and regular sun protection. Doctor Javid notes, “This is something everyone can do for themselves on a regular basis and it will have a positive impact in the long term.”
Some data shows that regular use of neuromodulators results in fewer future injections. For example, after two to three years of treatment, it may be possible to be scheduled every six months instead of every three to four, or use a lower dose, because the muscles become smaller.
“Prejuvenation” has the goal of prevention and maintenance. We are advocates of this approach and strongly encourage daily sun protection and an individualized daily skin care regimen, which may include the use of an antioxidant or retinol. Whether specific procedures are appropriate can be discussed with Doctor Javid.
Although, I’m definitely not advocating teens to start getting BOTOX® by any means; however; as an adult we can consider prejuvenation as an alternative option to the traditional rejuvenation.
