Summer is approaching and with all this warmer weather the bugs are in full effect! Some bugs, like gnats, are just annoying but don’t pose any real threat to us besides driving us insane. However, there are several species you certainly want to be more mindful of and know how to treat the bite if bitten!

One in particular we’ve been hearing a lot about recently are ticks! You might just think your pets are at risk of getting these pesky and somewhat hard to kill critters but humans are also at risk, especially in an area where there are lots of trees and tall grass!

Ticks are part of the arachnid family and are pretty much just bloodsucking parasites that can carry diseases such as lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. Yikes and no thanks!

To help protect yourself try these tick prevention tips:

  • Use a chemical repellent with DEET, permethrin or picaridin
  • Wear light-colored protective clothing so you can easily spot a tick if it gets on you
  • Tuck pant legs into socks to prevent them from getting inside your clothes
  • Avoid tick-infested areas (obviously)
  • Check yourself, your children and your pets daily during this prime season


However, despite all our efforts and tick prevention tips, we might still be a victim. If that happens here is a good video to know exactly the right way to rid yourself of these bloodsuckers!


Usually bites and stings can be taken care of at home, but if you experience any kind of reaction or start getting some flu like symptoms, please call DermaBlue Dermatology in Asheville, NC, today to schedule an appointment for tick bite treatment!

BOTOX® and Dysport are neuromodulators. These types of facial injectables target the muscles responsible for facial expressions. By temporarily blocking nerve signals, they relax these muscles, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines caused by repetitive muscle contractions.


Cosmetic fillers offer a non-surgical way to enhance facial features and restore youthful volume. Since many visible signs of aging can be traced back to volume loss, fillers can help replace what is lost to help restore a more youthful appearance. We offer the complete line of Juvederm Fillers.


Aesthetic injectables are minimally invasive cosmetic treatments that involve injecting various substances beneath the skin to achieve a range of aesthetic goals. They can target aspects of facial aging, addressing concerns like wrinkles and fine lines, loss of facial volume, & uneven skin texture.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a commonly used cosmetic procedure that utilizes concentrated beams of highly focused light to eradicate hair on various parts of the body. This method targets the hair follicles, damaging them to the extent that hair is unlikely to grow in that spot again.

Laser Resurfacing

Fractional laser resurfacing is the most effective laser treatment available for wrinkle reduction. At Dermablue, we brought the best possible technology for laser resurfacing to Asheville using the CORE CO2 fractional laser. Fractional laser resurfacing is the most effective laser treatment.
