Spider Vein Removal Treatments

Spider Vein Removal Treatments

Spider veins are a common dermatology problem that can affect the aesthetic appearance of the skin. If neglected for long, it may also lead to more complications. Dr. Steven Zimmet is an experienced dermatologist providing effective non-surgical treatments for spider vein removal. Patients in Austin, TX and surrounding communities have an opportunity to receive state of the art skin care treatments from him. 

COOLSclero Technique

One of the safest, time-tested and most effective treatments for spider vein removal is sclerotherapy. This is a non-surgical treatment that has been used by dermatologists for decades to treat the problem of spider veins. It involves treating the veins with tiny injections of special medication to eliminate the targeted spider veins.

Dr. Zimmet has adopted a highly effective and innovative technique called COOLSclero to perform spider vein treatment. With this technique, it is possible to reduce the discomfort to a negligible level, while achieving magnificent results. The technique involves a unique cooling process that allows the patient to remain comfortable as tiny needles of medication are injected directly into the diseased veins.

Sclerotherapy Procedure

Sclerotherapy is one of the most widely used treatments in dermatology for spider vein removal. The procedure involves injecting of a medication called sclerosant directly into the marked veins. The medication irritates the inner lining of the targeted veins and causes them to seal, shrink, and gradually dissolve. This way the spider veins are removed from the system in a gradual and natural way.

Dr. Zimmet adopts the most effective and proven methods of skin care. For sclerotherapy, he prefers to use Sotradecol Asclera, which is an FDA approved form of polidocanol. Alternatively, he may use a combination of saline and dextrose. He makes sure that only such medications are chosen that produce least discomfort for the patient, and yet achieve the best outcomes. Patients in Austin, TX and nearby areas may seek spider vein removal treatment from Dr. Zimmet.

Treatment Approaches

Prior to the administration of sclerotherapy, Dr. Zimmet will evaluate various aspects to determine the most appropriate treatment approach for a particular patient. He may choose of the following sclerotherapy approaches:

Liquid Sclerotherapy

If the patient suffers from tiny spider veins, liquid sclerotherapy may be the right treatment approach. With this treatment, the sclerosant solution is injected into the specific veins just on the surface of the skin.

Foam Sclerotherapy

If the size of the veins is larger and more prominent, foam sclerotherapy approach may be applied. In this approach, the sclerosant is mixed with air or another gas in order to create a foamy solution. This solution enhances the strength of the medication to achieve effective outcomes.

Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy

If the veins to be treated are in the deeper layers of the skin, more targeted results can be achieved with ultrasound guided approach. Pulsed light treatments may be used to treat facial spider veins.


Most patients may need two to five treatments to achieve the desired outcomes. This will depend on the extent of spider veins and how responsive is the patient to the treatment. Results with this treatment are long lasting, but some patients may need a repeat treatment in the future.

Botox® Before and After Photos

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® Cost

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.

Botox® : Frequently Asked Questions

botoxEver since Botox® was approved by the FDA in 2002 as a cosmetic dermatology anti-aging treatment, it has continued to dominate globally as the treatment of choice for millions of people. However, many new patients are still unaware about various aspects of Botox® treatment.

Dr. Steven Zimmet, an experienced dermatologist in Austin, TX, explains the pros and cons of Botox® to his patients during the initial consultation. Here is a set of FAQ that should address some of the common concerns that new patients may have about skin care with Botox® .

What is Botox® treatment?

Botox® is an injectable treatment made from botulinum toxin that is designed to reduce moderate to severe wrinkles and fine lines on the forehead, around the eyes and a few other facial areas. Among various non-surgical anti-aging treatments, Botox® is considered to be the most popular for people in the age group of 18 to 65.

How does Botox® work?

Botulinum toxin is one of the most powerful biological agents known to man. This toxin is a part of the Botox® prescription medication that is injected in controlled quantities directly into the shrunken muscle that is causing a wrinkle on the face. The toxin immediately blocks the communication between the nerve and the muscle, which causes the muscle to relax. As soon as the muscle is relaxed, the wrinkle becomes lighter or fades away completely.

What type of wrinkles can be treated with Botox® ?

Botox® dermatology treatment was originally approved by the FDA for the treatment of frown lines between the brows. In 2013, the FDA also approved Botox® for the cosmetic treatment of crow’s feet, which are fine lines around the eyes. Botox® providers have also been using Botox® with safe and predictable results for moderate to severe wrinkles on various other parts of the face.

Who is a marvelous candidate for Botox® ?

Any adult who is bothered by the signs of aging on the face, but is keen to avoid plastic surgery, may consider Botox® treatment. An experienced dermatologist such as Dr. Zimmet will examine various aspects before deciding whether a patient is a suitable candidate for Botox® . Patients in Austin, TX and nearby areas have an opportunity to receive Botox® and other treatments at Dr. Zimmet’s practice.

What is the downtime involved in this treatment?

Botox® skin care treatment does not involve any downtime. Patients are usually ready to resume their regular daily activities immediately after the treatment. Working people may even receive a Botox® treatment during lunch hour, and go back to work after the treatment session.

How soon will the results become apparent?

A significant improvement in the appearance of the skin can be seen almost immediately after a Botox® treatment. The condition of the skin will continue to improve for up to a month. The results with Botox® can last for anywhere from three to six months in most cases.

How painful is Botox® treatment?

Botox® treatment involves only brief and minimal discomfort for most patients. The Botox® provider may numb the local area with an anesthetic cream. The entire procedure can be completed in about 15 minutes.
