BOTOX Cosmetic

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein initially designed to relax the treated muscle of the face. BOTOX® Cosmetic may be used to soften the lines on the face especially the frown lines, forehead lines and “crow’s feet” lines. Innovative uses include elevation of the brows, softening the lines under the eyes as well as opening the eyes, and elevation of the corners of the mouth. BOTOX® Cosmetic is also FDA approved for the treatment of hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers designed to correct wrinkles, and augment the lips. They replace subcutaneous fat and other tissues that are lost with age. Commonly used dermal fillers include: Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm, Hylaform, Sculptra, and Radiesse.

Chemical Peeling

The chemicals remove skin cells on the surface of the skin and stimulate the production of new skin cells below. This leaves the skin smoother, less wrinkled, and more youthful in appearance. Chemical peels can be used effectively for a wide range of skin conditions including: fine lines and wrinkles, uneven pigmentation, shallow acne scars, sun-damaged skin, age spots, freckles, and precancers. Chemical peeling can be performed on the face, neck, chest, back, hands, arms, and legs.

The skin is the body’s first barrier against bacteria that cause infections. Even though many bacteria live on the surface of our skin, healthy skin can usually protect us from infection. However, bacterial skin infections can affect a small spot or may spread, affecting a large area. They can range from a treatable infection to a life-threatening skin condition.

eczema-dermatologist-orlandoEczema is a general term used to describe an inflammation of the skin. In fact, eczema is a series of chronic skin conditions that produce itchy rashes; scaly, dry and leathery areas; skin redness; or inflammation around blisters. It can be located anywhere on the body, but most frequently appears in the creases on the face, arms and legs. Itchiness is the key characteristic and symptom of eczema. When scratched, the lesions may begin to ooze and get crusted. Over time, painful cracks in the scaly, leathery tissue can form.

hives-urticaria-orlando-dermatologyHives, or “wheals”, are pale red swellings of skin that occur in groups on any part of the skin.  Urticaria is the medical word for hives.  Each hive lasts a few hours before fading without a trace.  New areas may develop as old areas fade.  They can vary in size from as small as a pencil eraser to as large as a dinner plate and may join together to form larger swellings.  Hives usually are itchy, but may also burn or sting.

Itching can be uncomfortable and frustrating for those patients who suffer. Skin diseases like hives, chicken pox, and eczema are associated with an itching rash. Other conditions, like dry skin, can cause your whole body to itch and your skin to crack. Scabies and lice are parasitic infestations of the skin that can be very itchy. If a pigmented mole itches then a dermatological opinion should be sought to exclude a malignant change in the mole. Kidney failure, liver disease including hepatitis, and thyroid disease may cause itching.

melanoma-treatment-diagnosis-orlando-dermatologyTo diagnose melanoma, a dermatologist begins by looking at the patient’s skin. A dermatologist will carefully examine moles and other suspicious spots. To get a better look, a dermatologist may use a device called a dermoscope. The device shines light on the skin. It magnifies the skin. This helps the dermatologist to see pigment and structures in the skin.

ringworm-orlando-dermatologyDifferent fungi, depending on their location on the body, cause ringworm. It is caused by a fungal infection–not an actual worm. Fungi on the skin, hair, and nail bed are called dermatophytes. Also referred to by doctors as Tinea infections, infection on the scalp, arms, legs, face, and trunk is characterized by ring-shaped, red, scaly patches with clearing centers. Tinea infections of the feet, nails, and genital areas are not generally referred to as ringworm, as they may not take on the typical ring shape.

LASER TREATMENTS

Brown spots, broken capillaries, and other fallout from photo aging are easy targets for laser systems that use broadband light to repair these defects through a process called photo-rejuvenation. Additionally, facial wrinkles can now be treated non-ablatively, contributing to a more youthful appearance. Using relatively low-energy, short-pulse broadband light, imperfections such as redness of rosacea, superficial capillaries, sun spots, age spots, and other discolored signs of photo-aging can be gently heated and eliminated, replaced by newer, younger looking skin. Treatment is gentle and with minimal downtime.
