It is Skin Cancer Awareness Month – Have You Been Checked?

It is Skin Cancer Awareness Month – Have You Been Checked?

With 3.5 million cases in over two million people diagnosed annually, skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. Fortunately, skin cancer is also one of the most preventable forms of cancer. May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month, and we would like to take this opportunity to recommend the following prevention guidelines:

  • Seek the shade, especially between 10 AM and 4 PM when the sun is strongest. 
  • Do not burn. A person’s risk for melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, doubles if he or she had had five or more sunburns at any point in life. Severe burns not only significantly increase your chances of developing skin cancer, but can make you ill. For severe burns, see your doctor.
  • Avoid tanning and UV tanning booths.
  • Cover up with clothing, including a broad-brimmed hat and UV-blocking sunglasses.
  • Use a broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher every day.
  • Apply 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) of sunscreen to your entire body 30 minutes before going outside.
  • Keep newborns out of the sun since their skin is extremely vulnerable.
  • Examine your skin head-to-toe every month. While self-exams shouldn’t replace the important annual skin exam performed by a dermatologist, they offer the best chance of detecting the early warning signs of skin cancer.
  • Know your spots. If you notice anything changing, growing, or bleeding on your skin, see a dermatologist. Skin cancer is very treatable when caught early.

Botox® vs. Juvederm – Which One is Right For You?

Botox® vs. Juvederm – Which One is Right For You?

Anti Aging Treatments | Botox®  | Juvederm | Austin TXFacial skin may tend to sag due to aging, sun exposure, environmental factors, disease, and other causes. Appearance of wrinkles and lines on the face can make a person look older than their real age. While facelift is the most dramatic solution to restore a youthful looking face, but some people may not be ready for surgery for an aesthetic purpose. In such cases, the surgeon or dermatologist may offer non-surgical treatment options such as Botox® and Juvederm.

Both Botox® and Juvederm are FDA approved cosmetic anti-aging treatments for the face. During the initial dermatology consultation, the treatment provider will discuss various aspects of both options and recommend the most appropriate treatment to meet the patient’s unique aesthetic needs. Dr. Steven Zimmet is an experienced dermatologist providing state of the art skin care and anti-aging treatments to patients in Austin, TX and surrounding communities.

Treatment Approach

Botox® is an injectable treatment designed to act as a muscle immobilizing agent. It is based on botulinum neurotoxin, which is a highly powerful biological substance. When this toxin is injected directly into the overactive facial muscle that is forming the wrinkle, it will cause the muscle to relax immediately. As a result, the wrinkle will fade or disappear entirely for a temporary period.

Juvederm, on other hand, is an injectable facial volumizing filler. This soft tissue filler is based on hyaluronic acid, which is a natural ingredient in the human body that helps to hold the skin together. As Juvederm gel is injected into the depleted areas of the facial skin, it causes the skill to become plump almost instantly. It also stimulates natural production of collagen in the skin, leading to more sustainable anti-aging outcomes.

Specific Areas of Treatment

A dermatologist may recommend Botox® or Juvederm treatments depending on the patient’s needs and the specific facial areas that need to be treated. The FDA has approved Botox® for many years for the cosmetic reduction of frown lines on the forehead or between the brows. In 2013, the FDA also approved Botox® was the temporary reduction of crow’s feet around the eyes.

Juvederm, on the other hand, is a dermal filler approved by the FDA for the treatment of moderate to severe lines, wrinkles and folds on the facial skin. This cosmetic dermatology treatment is designed to minimize the appearance of smile lines, reduce nasolabial folds, and augment lips. Variants of Juvederm such as Juvederm Voluma can add volume to the cheeks.


Dr. Zimmet is a leading skin care expert who will discuss the sustainability and effectiveness of both treatment options with his patients in Austin, TX and other areas. In case of Botox® , the patients can expect to enjoy the results for anywhere between three and six months.

The treatment involves almost no downtime, and results start becoming visible almost instantly. Juvederm cosmetic filler can produce more lasting results that can sustain for about one year on average. In case of Juvederm Voluma the results can last for up to 18 months or more.
