Tag Archives: Anti-Aging

A wide range of cosmetic dermatology anti-aging treatments are available to patients today. Many new patients are keen to receive Botox treatment, but they may not necessarily know about its potential effectiveness. This is where an experienced dermatologist will make use of Botox before and after photographs to explain the expected results of the treatment. Dr. Steven Zimmet provides some of the most marvelous, impressive, and valued skin care treatments, including Botox, to patients in and around Austin, TX.

What are Botox Before and After Pictures?

Before and after pictures in case of Botox treatment refer to a pair or group of pictures pertaining to a particular patient who has already received Botox treatment with satisfactory results. The pictures include images taken prior to the procedure and after the procedure at a time when full effects of the treatment are visible.

The pictures are taken with the patient’s approval, and shown to new patients with a purpose to educate them about various aspects of Botox cosmetic dermatology treatment. The Botox provider uses the pictures as a visual aid to show what improvements can possibly be made on the patient’s face for a temporary period of time.

Informed Choices

Some of the common facial anti-aging and skin care treatments include laser skin rejuvenation, chemical peels, dermal fillers, and facelift cosmetic surgery. An aesthetic dermatologist will explain the differences between various possible treatments, and how they may compare with Botox in terms of aesthetic outcome and other aspects. In some cases, the treatment provider may recommend a combination of Botox and other treatments for more comprehensive results.

If the patient needs to add volume to the depleted areas of the skin, a combination of facial fillers and Botox may be recommended. The patient can find it difficult to make the most appropriate choice among various treatment approaches. This is where Botox before and after photos can play a pivotal role and help the patient make an informed decision.

Staying Realistic

As an experienced dermatologist, Dr. Zimmet believes that patients with a positive frame of mind, clear aesthetic goals, and realistic expectations can achieve the best satisfaction levels with Botox treatment. He makes sure that his patients in Austin, TX and nearby areas gain access to Botox before and after photos during the initial consultation.

Before and after photographs will demonstrate clearly before the patient what the Botox treatment can or cannot do for them. They will be able to form realistic expectations, and make an informed choice about going ahead with the procedure. With these pictures, the risk of any misunderstanding is mitigated, and any potential trouble is avoided for everyone involved.

Posting the Images on Website

A dermatologist has the option to upload the Botox before and after photos on their practice website. These digital pictures can be included under a separate section called “Image Gallery.” New patients can simply access these photos from the privacy of their home or office. After reviewing the pictures, they may make up their mind whether to visit the practice for a personal Botox consultation and treatment.

Choice Between Surgery and Botox

Botox is not a long-term or permanent solution, and the results may only last for up to six months with a single treatment. The procedure is usually chosen by patients who are unwilling or unable to undergo a plastic surgery due to some reason. However, some patients may find it hard to choose between a surgical procedure and Botox.

A mini facelift, an endoscopic facelift, brow lift and eyelid lift are relatively lesser invasive procedures compared to a full facelift surgery. The patient can compare the limited results achieved by such procedures against the temporary results with Botox. Before and after pictures can allow the patient to make a valid comparison and make the most appropriate choice between surgery and Botox.

Botox CostBotox is probably the most popular and successful aesthetic dermatology treatment in the world today. Ever since the treatment was approved by the FDA for reduction of signs of aging from the face, skin care experts around the world have recommended it to patients who are keen to reduce facial wrinkles and fine lines without surgery.

Dr. Steven Zimmet is an experienced dermatologist providing Botox treatment to patients in Austin, TX and surrounding areas. Dr. Zimmet will discuss the cost aspects of the treatment during the initial consultation to help the patients make informed choices.

Comparing Botox Cost with Other Treatments

A wide range of cosmetic dermatology as well as surgery procedures are available today for facial rejuvenation. Each of the procedures involves different techniques and technologies such as lasers, chemical peels, cosmetic surgery, or facial fillers, and therefore, costs differently. Patients can evaluate their most suitable treatment options as well as compare their costs to determine the most appropriate option as per their needs and affordability.

Among all the major aesthetic treatments for the face, Botox is likely to be the most affordable. A procedure such as facelift can cost several thousand dollars, and even a mini facelift or fractional laser, ultrasound, chemical peels and advanced dermal fillers may cost significantly higher than Botox. With Botox, patients can enjoy similar outcomes for at least three to six months. The treatment can be repeated for prolonged effects. Dr. Zimmet provides Botox injectable skin care treatment to his patients in and around Austin, TX.

Scale of Treatment

Botox treatment costs will differ slightly from one patient to another even at the same practice. The location and surface area of treatment can be different between two patients, which can impact the cost. Some patients need only small improvements in one area of the face such as frown lines or crow’s feet, while others may require more extensive treatment in multiple areas.

The skills, experience, and reputation of the dermatologist and the kind of facilities and services offered at a particular practice may also have some bearing on the overall cost of treatment in some cases. In any case, Botox treatment should be received only from experienced and certified Botox experts.

Average Cost of Treatment

Botox treatment cost is generally determined on a per unit basis. Some practices may charge a different cost per unit for different areas of the body. However, the overall average cost will range from $11 to $18 per unit at most practices. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) figures, the average cost of Botox treatment in the United States ranges between $300 and $500.

At some practices, the price may be fixed according to the area of treatment, such as $350 for the treatment of fine lines around the eyes and $450 for forehead lines. Unless Botox is prescribed to treat certain medical conditions, the cost will not be covered under health insurance. Patients should explore the possibilities of financing by the way of credit card payments, medical care financing, or other sources.

Photo Rejuvenation Anti-Aging Skin Resurfacing

Pulsed Light Rejuvenation

Dr. Steven Zimmet is an experienced dermatologist providing resolute, beautiful, and state of the art skin care solutions to patients in and around Austin, TX. Technological advancements in the area of aesthetic dermatology have led to the development of innovative treatments such as Photo Rejuvenation. Dr. Zimmet recommends this treatment to suitable candidates for a variety of aesthetic and medical skin conditions.

What is Photo Rejuvenation?

Photo rejuvenation is a non-surgical procedure in dermatology to improve the appearance of skin in a targeted manner, employing Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) laser treatment. The treatment is effective in reducing, removing or lightening the effect of age spots, sun spots, and brown blotches on the face, neck, hands, chest, and other body parts.

Photo rejuvenation can reduce and lighten skin redness, rosacea, broken or dilated blood vessels in various areas. In some cases, the dermatologist may use this treatment to control flushing and enhance skin texture.

How does it Work?

Photo Rejuvenation is a non-surgical skin care solution that involves the application of laser/IPL technology. The dermatologist may use this treatment to improve a variety of skin conditions. Dr. Zimmet’s practice is equipped with advanced IPL technology to provide Photo Rejuvenation treatment to patients in Austin, TX and surrounding areas.

The laser/IPL device will release a range of lightwaves that are tuned and targeted at the RBCs in the blood vessels or melanin, which are present in freckles and age spots. The beam of light passes through the skin and is absorbed by either melanin or hemoglobin leading to fragmentation of melanin pigment or damage of the blood vessel walls. As a result, the melanin pigment and tiny vessels get absorbed by the body, which makes them less conspicuous from outside. The patient gains a smoother, more even and better looking skin.

Treatment Duration

Most effective results with Photo Rejuvenation are achieved when the treatment is administered consistently over a series of three to five treatment sessions. Each session is spaced three to six weeks apart. The patient will experience minimal discomfort and little or no risk of side effects during these treatments. Marked improvement can be seen with each treatment.

However, each patient will respond differently to the treatment. Full five treatment sessions may be required for patients who have suffer more severe sun damage, brown spots, or redness. In exceptional cases, more than five treatments may be necessary to achieve the desired aesthetic goals. Each treatment session may last for anywhere between 30 and 90 minutes, depending on the extent of surface area to be treated.

Recovery

If Photo Rejuvenation treatment is applied to reduce the appearance of unsightly veins, the skin may appear slightly reddish for about two to five days following the treatment. If the patient wishes to apply make-up in the first few days, it should be done very gently.

In rare cases, a patient may experience mild bruising, which will resolve on its own in about a week. Age spots and freckles may appear darker for the first three to six days, and crusting may occur, which can last for up to 10 days. The skin will clear after that and full effects of the treatment can be seen about a month later.
