Are you tired of seeing wrinkles and lines when you look in the mirror? Although it’s normal to develop fine lines and wrinkles as you get older, these imperfections will make you feel less confident about your appearance. At Orlando Dermatology in Orlando, Florida, we can smooth your skin and refresh your look in a minimally invasive manner with Xeomin. Read on to learn more about this wonderful injectable product.
Xeomin is an FDA-approved injectable product that is used to treat is used to treat forehead lines, crow’s feet, and other dynamic wrinkles that appear on your face.
Dynamic wrinkles are lines that are created by the repetitive movements of your muscles. Every day, you smile, yawn, laugh, and make other facial expressions. As you make these expressions, your skin will crease and fold. Although these movements are natural, they will cause your skin to develop noticeable wrinkles over time.
These dynamic wrinkles will mimic your most frequent expressions. For instance, if you smile a lot, you will develop wrinkles around your eyes. If you furrow your brow frequently, you will develop lines on your forehead. We can use this injectable product to treat the wrinkles in these areas of your face.
Xeomin contains purified botulinum toxin: a protein made by a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum. This ingredient can change the communication between your muscles and your nerves. We will inject this product into the facial muscles that cause your skin to crease. The product will prevent your nerves from telling your muscles to move. As a result, your muscles will relax, and the appearance of your wrinkles will improve.
The injectable process is very quick and straightforward, and we will administer this product in our office in Orlando, Florida. It usually only takes five to fifteen minutes to complete your treatment, and you will feel relaxed as we inject the product into your target area. Once we have finished your injections, you can return to your home or office.
It takes your skin some time to respond to this product, and you will not see immediate changes in your wrinkles. Instead, you will usually start to notice improvements in your skin in a few days. You should see the full effect of your injections within two weeks.
Although the longevity of your results depends on the strength of your facial muscles, how quickly your body processes this product, and other factors, improvements will usually last for three to six months. After your initial treatment wears off, you can maintain your smooth skin by receiving touch-up injections.
If you’ve never used an injectable treatment before, you are likely to worry that your treatment will make your face look frozen or stiff. Fortunately, you shouldn’t be concerned about this issue.
We will use our knowledge of facial anatomy to improve your skin in a soft, natural-looking manner, and your face will not look overdone or stiff once you achieve the full benefits of your treatment. Instead, you will appear to be more refreshed and youthful.
You should start using this treatment when your dynamic wrinkles begin to bother you. Since the condition of your skin is affected by many different factors, you will not necessarily develop wrinkles at the same rate as other people do. Your genes might increase your chances of aging at a rapid rate, and you might make strong facial expressions that etch wrinkles onto your face while you are still in your twenties or thirties.
It’s a good idea to start using this injectable product when your lines first become noticeable. By starting your treatments at a younger age, you will prevent fine lines from turning into deeper wrinkles that are more difficult to treat.
This treatment produces reliable, safe results. In 2011, the FDA approved this treatment for the purposes of reducing wrinkles between the eyebrows. Today, thousands of people around the world have successfully used this product to improve their skin.
There is ample scientific evidence showing that this treatment is an excellent way to minimize dynamic wrinkles. For example, many people in clinical trials had noticeable improvements in their wrinkles within thirty days of receiving this treatment.
If you are an adult who wants to smooth your forehead lines, frown lines, and other wrinkles, you are probably an ideal candidate for this treatment. This is a minimally invasive treatment, and this injectable product does not contain additives. As a result, your body is likely to respond well to this treatment.
Before you receive your injections, we will discuss your health and medical history. During this discussion, you should inform us if you have any allergies or any conditions that affect your nerves or muscles. You should also let us know if you have received any botulinum toxin-based treatments in the past.
Xeomin is a great way to achieve smoother, more youthful-looking skin. This amazing product produces quick, reliable results. To learn more about this injectable treatment, contact us at Orlando Dermatology in Orlando, Florida for an initial consultation today.
Are you discouraged by the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles? If so, you may be interested in learning more about treatment with Juvederm, a dermal filler designed to smooth away lines and wrinkles and restore your youthful appearance. At Orlando Dermatology in Orlando, FL, we’re proud to offer this product alongside our other top-quality services.
Juvederm is a family of dermal fillers that uses hyaluronic acid to create instant, noticeable lift in the face and minimize lines and wrinkles. Once injected, the hyaluronic acid plumps and hydrates the skin. It also stimulates new collagen production, which reinforces the framework of the skin and prevents the development of further wrinkles.
The volumizing effect of treatment creates smoother, brighter skin with an undeniable glow. Treatment is quick, painless, and can be easily combined with other anti-aging products to create your ideal image.
This treatment is able to deliver excellent results for most patients. Thanks to its natural ingredients, it is considered safe and effective for the majority of patients to use. It offers instant, noticeable results, a short appointment, and requires zero downtime after treatment.
Our skilled doctors can customize this product to meet your needs, creating volume and smoothing away signs of aging in almost every area of the face. Best of all, our patients experience a significant confidence boost once they look and feel more like themselves.
We offer several Juvederm products. While each uses hyaluronic acid to achieve final results, the types of products are specially formulated to treat different issues.
This product is used to erase wrinkles around the mouth, including above the top lip and below the lower lip. It can also be used to fill and redefine the lips. The hyaluronic acid in the formula results in a smooth, skin-like texture and creates subtle, attractive volume in the lips, delivering results so natural that no one will be able to tell that you had treatment unless you choose to tell them.
The cheeks and midface are one of the first facial regions to lose volume and begin to show signs of aging. For many patients, this begins in the late 30s and grows worse over time. This product can inject instant volume into the cheeks and give your skin a new lift.
This product is designed to treat lines and folds around the mouth. These lines can deepen over time and make you appear older or more tired than you really are. Injections with this product can improve the appearance of nasolabial folds and marionette lines. These deep lines and folds can be filled and smoothed in one simple treatment. In addition, it can be used to plump the lips, which can lose volume and definition as we grow older.
Like Ultra Plus, this product is most often used to fill and erase nasolabial folds, which travel from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth, and marionette lines, which travel from the corners of the mouth to the edges of the chin. These lines often begin developing in the early 20s and may become increasingly noticeable in the late 20s and 30s, before other signs of aging begin to develop.
Each patient’s results vary based on their unique situation, but in general, our Juvederm treatments deliver results lasting between 12-24 months. Your individual results will depend on the severity of your concerns and how closely you follow our doctors’ instructions for prolonged results.
If you are an adult man or woman who is concerned about the appearance of lines and wrinkles, you could be an ideal candidate! Treatment is best suited for candidates with mild to moderate lines and wrinkles or loss of volume in the cheeks, lips, or skin around the mouth and chin.
It may not be ideal for those who experience severe wrinkles or skin laxity. If you have questions about your candidacy, one of our doctors can help you evaluate your concerns during your initial consultation.
To begin your treatment process, you will meet with one of our experienced doctors for an initial consultation. This appointment will help us determine your candidacy for treatment as we evaluate your areas of concern. Once you are approved for treatment, your doctor will give you specific instructions on how to prepare for your first appointment.
On the day of your appointment, we recommend avoiding makeup in the target areas. Your doctor will clean the target areas, then apply a numbing agent to keep you comfortable during treatment.
Next, your doctor will inject the product into the predetermined areas, building volume and smoothing wrinkles and lines instantly. You will be able to see your results immediately after treatment and will be able to return to your normal routine with zero downtime.
Your results will be visible as soon as your treatment is complete. You should be able to see that your skin is smoother and that lines, wrinkles, and loose skin are diminished thanks to the volumizing effect created by the injections. While results can last 12-24 months, most patients choose to continue having treatments after their results fade to maintain their ideal image.

As our bodies age, they may start to show more fat deposits despite regular diet and exercise. Our skin might sag and show more cellulite. At Orlando Dermatology in Orlando, Florida, we can use radiofrequency (RF) body contouring to reduce these signs of aging.
This treatment can:
It also can treat acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, cystic acne, stretch marks, and uneven skin tone. Body contouring may be able to transform your body into what you have dreamed of.
This is a non-invasive technique that uses heat and RF energy to shape your body by getting rid of undesirable fat cells. The technology also smooths your skin where cellulite or sagging may exist.
After the fat cells have shrunk, you will see a more desirable and contoured shape. The heat used in this skin treatment boosts collagen production, giving the skin more strength. When your skin has more collagen, it will look smoother and firmer. Sagging and wrinkles will fade.
Treatments using radiofrequency use thermal heat energy to produce stunning results. Thermal heat energy is an oscillating electrical current that produces collisions between ions and molecules, making them into heat.
RF thermal stimulation is theorized to cause a micro inflammatory process that encourages the growth of new collagen – a protein that keeps our skin smooth, firm, and supple. This process makes the skin contract, which smooths, tightens, and firms the skin surface.
By manipulating skin cooling and delivering radiofrequency energy to precise skin depths, these treatments are highly effective in reducing fat pockets. RF thermal stimulation happens regardless of skin color type, so it is a powerful treatment for patients of every ethnicity. The result? Smooth, tight, more youthful-looking skin. Also, cellulite is less obvious and fat cells shrink to enhance your natural beauty.
This non-invasive body contouring treatment suctions the skin in the treatment zone and then applies RF energy and heat to the cells. Once undesirable cells are heated to the desired temperature, Contoura delivers several energy pulses to destroy those cells. They stay in the body but are disposed of naturally.
If this treatment is done for six to eight weeks, you will see impressive, long-lasting results. You will look more toned and younger.
This treatment features a handheld device that is moved over the desired area. When the device is moved on the skin, undesirable cells are heated, causing them to shrink. Simultaneously, the heat stimulates collagen production to tighten your skin. This technique shows fast results, but the best results come after six to eight sessions.
Before we can decide which skin treatment is best for you, we will ask you to visit us for a consultation. Our skin treatment professionals will review the areas you want to treat and discuss your long-term skincare goals. After this information has been collected, a customized treatment plan will be created with the technique that is best for your needs and goals.
There are several prerequisites to determine the ideal candidate for this treatment. The most important factor is to have a healthy and stable weight. RF body contouring is intended to remove stubborn pockets of fat. It will not replace diet and exercise for extensive weight loss.
Patients who have a low, controlled body fat percentage usually see optimal results. These types of bodies see the removal of fat deposits the fastest. If you have a larger area of fat, this is probably best treated with liposuction first.
You also should be willing to undergo several treatments to ensure the optimal amount of fat is removed. Age and health conditions are not as influential on the ideal patient for this skin treatment. This is because it is a non-invasive treatment with few side effects.
The major difference between this treatment and traditional liposuction is that this method dissolves fat cells and firms collagen in the patient’s skin. The result is a naturally contoured shape. This is also a non-invasive treatment with fewer risks and less recovery time than liposuction.
Are you ready for radiofrequency body contouring to produce your ideal shape? For ideal results, please keep these tips in mind:

Stretch marks can make it awkward to go to the beach or gym. If pregnancy or an otherwise successful weight loss plan has left you with stretch marks, Venus Viva can quickly and safely remove them. It can also resurface and restore your skin, eliminating aging signs and scars. If you want to know more about this treatment, contact Orlando Dermatology in Orlando, FL for more details.
Venus Viva is a skin resurfacing treatment from Venus Treatments that is designed to rejuvenate the skin in quick and painless treatment sessions. The skin treatment is non-invasive and involves no surgery, using microneedles and pulses of NanoFractional radiofrequency or RF energy to boost your skin’s collagen production. Collagen is the substance that rebuilds the skin when it is damaged and increases the skin’s elasticity.
This leaves your skin renewed and youthful after treatment. We can use the treatment to address various skin conditions and damage to the skin caused by aging and lifestyle.
Stretch marks are scars that form when the skin is stretched due to weight gain, hormones, and pregnancy. They may be pale or dark and look like cracks or tears in the skin. Venus Viva can be an excellent choice for treating stretch marks. The NanoFractional RF energy creates collagen that rejuvenates the scarred skin, reducing the appearance, or even eliminating, stretch marks.
This treatment heats the skin to stimulate collagen production using NanoFractional RF energy. The collagen restructures and rebuilds the skin where scars and blemishes have formed, and the treatment is more effective than laser therapy and chemical peels. Wrinkles, fine lines, rosacea, dark spots, and enlarged pores are some other skin conditions that can be treated with NanoFractional RF energy. After the treatment, you will have smooth and tight skin with a more even tone and texture.
The face is the most common area that we treat, but the neck and d?colletage, or chest skin area, are also treatable, along with many other areas. We can refresh the skin on your face, giving you a youthful and healthy look. Wrinkles, lines, enlarged pores, and acne scars can be eliminated from your complexion. We can also reduce skin laxity and blemishes on your neckline and chest, giving you a more youthful appearance overall.
The most common areas for stretch mark reduction are the abdomen, buttocks, legs, and upper arms. Each of these areas can be treated with NanoFractional RF energy. Almost every part of the body can be treated to reduce scars and skin laxity.
This treatment is safe for all skin tones and can treat you regardless of your age and gender. We can quickly remove your skin imperfections, and you can return to work without any downtime. The treatment can be a good choice if you have little free time because you can complete a treatment session during your lunch break and return to work or your normal routine immediately.
During your consultation, we can give you a good idea of how many sessions you will need and what results you can expect from the treatment. We will ask you questions about your health and medical history during your initial consultation to determine the safety and effectiveness of the treatment for you.
Questions like whether you have had recent surgery, dry skin, an active infection, allergies, and other disorders will help us determine your treatment plan. If you are pregnant or nursing, the treatment may not be recommended. The RF energy can also be unsafe to use if you have metal implants or devices in your body. The treatment is also not recommended if you are taking blood thinners, anti-inflammatory medications, or have had excessive sun exposure.
This treatment can be concluded in three to four sessions for most patients. Each session takes 15 to 30 minutes, and your sessions will be spaced at least four weeks apart to allow for your recovery. Your results will come soon after your treatment sessions, but it takes time for the collagen to rebuild the skin. How many sessions you need and how much time it takes to see results will depend on your skin condition.
The treatment results are not permanent, and you will need to come back for a maintenance session every 6 to 12 months to prolong your youthful skin. Keeping your skin moisturized and protected from the sun can help you maintain healthy skin, but the frequency of touch-up treatments depends on your skin health and age.
Venus Viva is an FDA-approved skin resurfacing treatment and is safe for most patients. The treatment is an excellent alternative to invasive surgical procedures to tighten the skin and remove blemishes. It is also more effective than lasers on every skin tone and can provide results in just a few quick sessions. The treatment is not painful and will not cause any damage to your skin.
If you are ready to stop dealing with stretch marks, visit Orlando Dermatology in Orlando, FL for an initial consultation today. We can help you reduce the appearance of stretch marks and even eliminate them altogether. We can also help you deal with scars, aging signs, and rosacea without using any lasers or surgery.
