Tip of the Week: Prevent Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)

Dvt-treatments - causesMarch was DVT month, but lots of people are gearing up for travel in these coming months.

Understand the risk factors and preventive measures you can take to prevent DVT while on long flights or sitting in the same place for a long time.

Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) occurs when blood flows too slowly through the veins. The blood forms a clot that blocks up deep veins, usually in the legs. DVT doesn’t generally have any immediate symptoms, making it difficult to spot. However, typical signs include a swollen or painful calf or thigh, paleness and increased heat around the affected area.

If left untreated, people with DVT are at risk of developing a pulmonary embolism, when part of the blood clot breaks away and travels to the lung, which can be fatal.

DVT (blood clots) high-risk factors:

  • history of DVT or pulmonary embolism
  • cancer
  • stroke
  • heart disease
  • inherited tendency to clot (thrombophilia)
  • recent surgery (pelvic region or legs)
  • obesity
  • pregnancy
  • hormone replacement therapy

If you think you have a risk of developing DVT, see your doctor before you travel.

Tips to avoid DVT blood clots during long travel flights (greater than 4 hrs):

  • Stay hydrated (drink water, not alcohol or coffee, which dehydrate)
  • Move (get up and walk, or at least flex your feet up and down periodically throughout the flight)
  • Wear properly fitted compression stockings. These should be at least 14 mm Hg or greater. Below knee or thigh high are fine.
  • Consider taking low dose aspirin (81 mg/day) if medically appropriate

Botox® Wrinkle Reduction Treatment

botox injectionBotox® is probably the world’s most popular non-surgical anti-aging treatment for the face. Among the various treatments available in dermatology, Botox® has continued to remain one of the most recommended solutions by skin care experts worldwide ever since it was approved by the FDA in 2002. Dr. Steven Zimmet is an experienced dermatologist providing Botox® treatment to suitable candidates in Austin, TX and surrounding communities. 

How does Botox® Work?

Botox® is made from botulinum neurotoxin, which is among the most potent biological substances on this planet. Very tiny quantities of this toxin are used in a Botox® dosage to address the aging signs on the face. The overactive muscles in the deeper layers of the facial skin can cause a wrinkle to form on the surface. Botox® medication is injected directly into the targeted muscle using very fine needles. The medication works instantly to cause a temporary paralysis in the muscle.

The muscle relaxes immediately, and the wrinkle fades away naturally from the face. The effect remains in place as long as the impact of Botox® lasts, and the muscle remains in a relaxed mode. The FDA has approved this treatment for the removal or reduction of frown lines on the forehead. In 2013, Botox® also received FDA’s approval for the reduction of crow’s feet around the eyes. Many dermatologists also use Botox® for lip enhancement and reduction of wrinkles and fine lines in other areas of the face.


Botox® is widely popular as a cosmetic skin care solution because it reduces the wrinkles and fine lines without the need for any surgical incisions. People who are reluctant to opt for surgery as an option to treat facial signs of aging are usually best suited to consider Botox® as a non-invasive injectable treatment alternative. Dr. Zimmet recommends Botox® to such patients at his dermatology practice in Austin, TX.

The treatment with Botox® is nearly painless and free of all the potential risks and side effects that may be typically associated with plastic surgery. However, the treatment must be performed only by a qualified and experienced Botox® provider to ensure that the dosage is administered correctly and safely. In terms of affordability, Botox® is the treatment of choice for many people who are unwilling to spend on a cosmetic surgery procedure that is not covered by health insurance.

Botox® offers a major advantage for people who are very busy or cannot take much time off from work for an aesthetic procedure. A single Botox® treatment session can be completed in less than an hour. There is no downtime involved, and most patients are ready to resume their regular activities immediately. Working people may even take a Botox® appointment during the lunch break from work, and simply go back to work after the treatment.

Botox® for Crow’s Feet

Crow’s feet refer to the fine lines that emanate from the far outside corners of the eyes. Allergan Inc., the manufacturer of Botox® , presented a detailed study that showed the safety and effectiveness of Botox® in reducing crow’s feet. In 2013, Allergan received the FDA’s approval for cosmetic reduction of crow’s feet.

FotoFacial Rejuvenation IPL Before and After Photos

Sun spots, age spots and rosacea removal treatments

Photo Rejuvenation is an IPL/Laser based procedure to improve the condition of skin and make it appear more attractive and youthful. A dermatologist may perform this procedure for aesthetic or medical skin care, depending on the needs of a particular patient. Photo Rejuvenation IPL Before and After Photos

Dr. Steven Zimmet provides a wide range of dermatology treatments, including Advanced FotoFacial Rejuvenation, to his patients in Austin, TX and nearby areas. Dr. Zimmet makes use of before and after photographs to educate new patients about various aspects of Photo Rejuvenation.

What are FotoFacial Rejuvenation Before and After Images?

Before and after photographs with reference to FotoFacial Rejuvenation procedure refer to a pair or group of pictures belonging to a previous patient who has received the same treatment with successful results. The pictures include photos taken prior to the treatment and after the treatment, at a time when all treatment sessions have been completed and full effects of FotoFacial Rejuvenation can be seen. These pictures are taken with the consent of the patient, and shown to new patients in a discreet manner.

The goal of the dermatologist is to use to these pictures as a visual tool to educate new patients about various aspects of FotoFacial Rejuvenation. Dr. Zimmet ensures that before and after photos are made available to his dermatology patients wherever possible. Patients in Austin, TX and surrounding locations may review these photos during the initial consultation at Dr. Zimmet’s office.


When a new patient visits a dermatologist’s office to seek a skin care treatment such as FotoFacial Rejuvenation, they may have only a vague idea of what the procedure can or cannot do for them. During the initial consultation, the dermatologist will show Photo Rejuvenation before and after pictures to help them make an informed decision about undergoing the treatment.

FotoFacial Rejuvenation procedure may be needed for removal of sun spots, age spots or reduction of medical skin conditions such as rosacea. The severity and nature of each case may be different, which will require different number and intensity of treatment in each case. It can get difficult for a new patient to comprehend how many treatments may be beneficial for them, and how their skin will appear after the treatment is completed. This is where before and after photos can help the patient choose the right treatment option and have a more transparent idea on what to expect.

This is just better for everyone involved and mitigates any doubt or problems after the procedure is performed.

Realistic Expectations

In a non-surgical procedure such as Advanced FotoFacial Rejuvenation, it is important to ensure that the patient understands clearly what the procedure can or cannot do for them. Each patient’s skin condition is different, and the treatment may only help within limited parameters. Photo Rejuvenation before and after images can ensure that the patient has a very clear idea of the potential effectiveness of the procedure, and he or she forms realistic expectations about it.

Photos on the Website

Some skin care experts may decide to provide the digital versions of FotoFacial Rejuvenation before and after pictures on their practice website. This can provide free access to the photos to new patients who can review them online even before they visit the dermatologist’s office for a consultation.

Tip of the Week: Considering Laser Treatment? What to Look For…

laser treatmentThe focus should be on you, not on sales.  Take note if your visit feels more like a sales pitch than a consultation that addresses your concerns and questions.

  • Your consultation should be with the doctor or laser professional who will be treating you, not a sales person.
  • You should not feel rushed or pressured.
  • You should be informed about the various reasonable treatment options, along with their pros and cons.
  • You should be clearly informed in detail about the entire process: before, during and after.

Photo Rejuvenation (IPL Pulsed Light) Skin Resurfacing Cost

Photo Rejuvenation is a state of the art non-surgical dermatology treatment, which may be performed for aesthetic or medical skin care. Dr. Steven Zimmet is a dedicated dermatologist providing this treatment to patients in Austin, TX and surrounding communities. During the initial consultation, Dr. Zimmet will discuss various aspects of the treatment, including the cost aspect, to help patients make an informed decision.

Cost-effective Treatment

Many people are keen to achieve a smoother and rejuvenated skin on the face and other parts of the body. However, some of them may not like to choose surgical treatments due to the relatively higher costs of cosmetic surgery. Aesthetic procedures are typically not covered by health insurance, which can prove to be a financial deterrent for some people.

In such cases, the dermatologist may recommend a more cost-effective, safer and simpler alternative such as Photo Rejuvenation. This treatment will cost only a fraction of the average cost of cosmetic surgery, and may be able to achieve similar outcomes in most cases. In fact, some people are reluctant to choose surgical options for aesthetic reasons, and Photo Rejuvenation can prove to be the ideal solution in such cases.

Cost Factors

The cost of Photo Rejuvenation may vary from one practice to another due to a few factors.

Practice Location

Living costs typically vary from one state to another or from one city to another. This can have an influence on the average cost of most types of products and services in a particular area, including aesthetic dermatology services. For instance, the cost of Photo Rejuvenation treatment in Austin, TX may not be the same as the cost at a similar practice in Las Vegas, NV.

Quality and Services

The cost of Photo Rejuvenation treatment may also vary depending on the kind of technology, comfort, services, and the skills and experience of the support staff that are available at a particular practice. Skin care treatment should be performed only by an experienced dermatologist for clean, outstanding, and expected outcomes.

Extent of Treatment

The cost of Photo Rejuvenation may also differ between two patients at the same practice. This will depend on the particular area of the body that needs to be treated, and the extent of surface area of treatment. This procedure can be used effectively to treat the face, neck, chest, hands, and other parts of the body.

Severity of the patient’s condition will also make a difference to the overall costs. Some patients may need only two to three treatments, while others may need five or more treatments to achieve the desired results. Each treatment session may last from 30 to 90 minutes. Therefore, the cost will vary according to the number and duration of treatments.

Average Costs

A single treatment session for the full face may cost anywhere from $400 to $700, depending on various factors. A treatment involving face, neck, and chest may cost between $1,200 and $3,000. Treatment for the hands typically costs around $300 to $400 per treatment session. The total cost will depend on the total number of treatment sessions needed for a particular patient.
