It’s no mystery how people from all walks of life stay looking youthful and refreshed year after year. BOTOX® has become a veritable godsend for men and women around the world. We at Orlando Dermatology are proud to offer this popular and effective aesthetic favorite. If you don’t know about BOTOX® injections for fine lines and wrinkles, you are warmly invited to learn more.
What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is essentially a purified protein solution. This serum is perfectly safe in the treatment of muscular conditions and the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment has been FDA-approved for cosmetic use since 2002.
How Does BOTOX® Work?
BOTOX® injections work by temporarily relaxing some of the muscles that control facial expressions. The solution is administered into specific areas of the face that are prone to wrinkling due to repeated contraction of muscles. The most notable areas of application are the forehead, the area between the eyebrows, and the lateral sides of the eyes. The treatment works to correct the appearance of crow’s feet and much more. The treatment is safe, gentle, quick, and efficient.
Who’s a Good Candidate for BOTOX® Injections?
If you’re an adult and are concerned about the visible effects of premature aging, BOTOX® injections may be the solution for you. The ideal candidate is in good general health with no history of neuromuscular disease.

Your skin is the largest organ of your body. And unlike many of your other organs, your skin is exposed to the outside elements. Because of that, it is vulnerable to many diseases and adverse conditions. A good dermatologist, however, can help protect your skin and keep you looking young and healthy. So, you may be wondering if you should visit a dermatologist. And the answer is, if you see anything unusual on your skin, then you should schedule a visit before the abnormality grows into a more serious condition. Below are just some of the many reasons you may want to schedule a visit to our dermatology clinic.
Protect Yourself Against Skin Cancer
Did you know that skin cancer is, by far, the most common form of cancer in the world? Every year, there are over 5.4 million cases of basal and squamous skin cancer diagnosed. The good news is that most skin cancer conditions are easily treatable. However, it is important that our dermatologist is able to find the cancer early. That is why you should schedule a regular cancer screening at our dermatology clinic. Also, if you find any unusual changes in your skin, then you should immediately have your skin looked at by our team.
Treatment for Eczema
Eczema is a chronic skin condition that causes irritation, itchiness and flaky patches of skin. Left untreated, it can cause infection, bleeding and cracking of the skin. If you have persistent irritation, itchiness or flaking of the skin, then you may have eczema. Our dermatologist and staff will be able to treat the condition and get your skin back to normal.
Protecting Against Skin Damage
If you spend too much time in the sun, you could experience some permanent skin damage. Also, your skin can experience damage from the natural aging process. Our dermatologist has a number of ways to treat aging and damaged skin.
Cases of acne should never be treated on your own. If you are dealing with acne or the resulting acne scars, set up a consultation at our dermatology clinic.

Medical dermatology is similar to cosmetic dermatology in many ways but also differs significantly. Cosmetic dermatology mainly focuses on making the skin, hair and nails look more aesthetically pleasing. It focuses on anti-aging treatments, such as fillers, wrinkle reducers, and non-invasive and minimally-invasive treatments for giving the skin better tone and texture. On the other hand, medical dermatology is used to diagnose and treat diseases and issues of the skin, hair, and nails. These diseases may be caused by external organisms that manifest themselves in problems on the skin or by internal issues that affect the skin.
A medical dermatologist is a fully trained and licensed medical doctor who has focused his or her specialization on the skin, hair, and nails. These professionals are equipped to treat thousands of different diseases, including common rashes and infections as well as chronic problems, such as eczema. Skin cancer is another increasingly common concern that medical dermatology can address. A dermatologist does not solely focus on the skin of the face, arms, and legs. Instead, he or she can also focus on areas that are rarely seen, such as the soles of the feet and even the skin in the groin.
You should see a medical dermatologist at least once a year if you have not been diagnosed with any specific problems of the skin, hair, or nails. Your yearly checkup will include a complete skin examination. Our doctor will note any moles, rashes, infections or other areas of special concern and will help you find good treatment options. The doctor will also keep an eye on certain areas, such as moles, to see if they change year after year.
A medical dermatologist can work with patients of all ages, genders and skin colors. He or she provides help for acute and chronic problems, life-changing conditions, genetic issues and even autoimmune diseases affecting the skin. He or she will work with the specific knowledge gained by a specialized education to diagnose the problem. You may need a series of tests to help the practitioner arrive at the correct conclusion. These could be noninvasive or minimally invasive tests. Once you are correctly diagnosed, your medical dermatologist will prescribe the right treatment. Many times, you can treat yourself at home using an over-the-counter or prescription medication or ointment. Some medications are used topically on the affected skin or nails. Others must be taken orally to treat certain fungal infections or to improve the health of your skin or hair from the inside out.
Just because your medical dermatologist is trained mainly in the diagnosis and treatment of skin, hair and nail diseases does not mean that he or she will not be able to help you with your cosmetic concerns as well. This specialized knowledge results in wonderful benefits as you seek to age gracefully and always look your best. Ask us today about all of the different ways that our medical dermatologists can help you at your first consultation in our state-of-the-art office.

When you hear about moles, what image comes to mind? There are a number of images associated with these blemishes. They are imperfections on the skin. In some instances, they are beauty marks. In other instances, they are larger, raised, and full of hair. They can range in color from black to tan to red to purple. Most are relatively small, being smaller than the eraser on a pencil.
Moles can change in color with exposure to the sun or hormonal fluctuations. They can appear anywhere on your body. Some people have these blemishes on their eyelids, on their arms, on the soles of their feet, and on their genitals.
What Causes Moles?
There are a number of conditions that can cause moles. Some people develop them as a result of heredity. Their parents have them, and so they have them as well. Others develop the marks because of overexposure to the sun. Interestingly, many people have moles in adulthood not because of sun exposure in adulthood but instead because of sun exposure they experienced as a child.
Moles are more commonly seen in individuals who have freckles. They are more commonly seen in individuals who have a lighter complexion as well. A person who has blonde hair or red hair is more likely to develop these spots.
Avoiding excessive sun exposure can minimize the appearance of some types. Moles are seen on individuals regardless of their ethnicity, nationality, and skin color. It is surprising for some to learn that even animals can develop these marks.
What Treatments are Available?
If you have new moles on your body and you notice that they are getting larger in size, or if you’ve always had a mole and you simply want it gone, reach out to our team at Orlando Dermatology in Orlando, FL. Let our skilled medical professional evaluate your skin as this can help determine if and when treatment can help. Contact us today to book a dermatology appointment.
Glowing. Radiant. These are words often used to describe expectant mothers. While there are hormonal changes that give you thick, glossy hair and a certain vibrancy at times, these changes can also negatively affect your skin. Our Mommy Glow services in Orlando are designed to give women like you a little extra pampering and attention that’s personalized to the client.
What are Mommy Glow Packages?
Concerns for your child’s health begin long before they’re born. That means you’re extra cautious about what chemicals and other potentially harmful agents you’re exposed to during this time. If you look at labels and product warnings, it seems there are plenty of ingredients that may pose a risk while pregnant or nursing. It’s difficult to find skin care lines that are safe for mothers and developing babies while remaining effective.
Because your body is using extra resources to create a hospitable environment for a growing baby, it can really affect your skin. This may leave your face dry, sensitive, or vulnerable to rashes and eruptions.
Mommy Glow services comprise a selection of products and treatments that are geared toward the unique needs and prohibitions of expectant mothers. They’re designed to address specific issues that women experience when they’re pregnant, such as skin discolorations, acne, and lack of brilliancy.
What to Expect
Since there are different packages to address skin issues that occur at various times during your pregnancy, you’re sure to find one that’s right for you. Your visit will begin with a warm welcome to put you at ease. From there, we can come up with customized Mommy Glow treatment plan for you.
The facial skin is one of the first areas where definitive signs of aging become noticeable. Thin smile lines, creases, dull texture, and more pronounced blemishes make us look older than we really are. The amount of moisture retained in the skin layers decreases, and collagen production decreases as well. Many anti-aging cosmetic treatments are available, but most of these target only one specific problem. A better solution in many cases is the HydraFacial® treatment, a multi-step procedure designed to improve the overall appearance and texture of the skin by addressing multiple concerns. These problems are corrected in a single treatment session. If you’ve never heard of the HydraFacial® treatment, the following information will be of great interest.
Problems with Aging Skin
Did you know that once an individual reaches 25 years of age, the skin produces approximately one percent less collagen each successive year? Mature adults also retain less moisture in the skin layers because the body produces less and less hyaluronic acid. Pores enlarge, and this results in trapped oil, dead cells, and foreign matter. Overexposure to the harmful rays of the sun creates a brittle, dull appearance to the skin, and areas of hyperpigmentation become more and more visible.
The best way to address these problems is to combine exfoliation and extraction with the stimulation of new tissue growth. The HydraFacial® treatment is a multi-step procedure that includes exfoliation, a mild chemical peel, extraction, and nutrient infusion. You can enjoy a more radiant glow to the skin, and the skin itself will be softer, more supple, and show fewer visible wrinkles.
Depending on your actual skin tone and texture, the severity of wrinkling, and the visibility of any areas of hyperpigmentation such as scarring or blemishes, we will customize the treatment, placing more emphasis on one step and less emphasis on another.
Various alterations to the traditional HydraFacial® treatment include a growth factor boost, dermabuilder boost, and tone boost. The latter targets blemishes such as acne scars and freckles.
Enjoy Youthful-Looking, Hydrated Facial Skin
There’s nothing quite like the HydraFacial® treatment, and there’s no simpler way to improve the overall condition of your facial skin. Contact us today at Orlando Dermatology to schedule a consultation at our office in Orlando. You’ll love what this multi-step, anti-aging treatment can do for you.
