Learn about Anti-aging Skin Treatments

Learn about Anti-Aging Skin Treatments | Austin DermatologyAdvanced skin care solutions are available today to address a variety of skin conditions, including the effects of aging. Non-invasive and minimally invasive anti-aging dermatology treatments are more popular today because they involve minimal discomfort and downtime, and produce more sustainable, natural looking outcomes.

Dr. Steven Zimmet is an experienced dermatologist providing a comprehensive range of anti-aging skin treatments. Dr. Zimmet will recommend the most appropriate treatment combinations and alternatives during the initial consultation. He provides these treatments to patients in Austin, TX and surrounding locations.



This unique skin care treatment is based on radio frequency (RF) technology. RF energy generates gentle heat in the deeper layers of the skin, triggering fresh collagen production to firm up and tighten the skin. The treatment can be applied in areas around the face, neck, mouth and eyes as well as other body parts. Surface fine lines on the face can be treated with the fractional RF handpiece of ENDYMED™ 3DEEP.



Ultherapy® is based on ultrasound technology. The device will generate gentle heat through ultrasound waves to lift, tone, and tighten the skin. It will also stimulate new collagen production for more sustainable outcomes. Ultherapy® is commonly used on the face and neck, and involves little to no downtime. A single dermatology treatment session with Ultherapy® will take about 30 to 90 minutes, depending on the extent of treatment.


Venus Legacy™

Venus Legacy™ is your best option for combating stubborn fat areas and cellulite. It uses our proven (MP)2 technology—Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields—but combines it with the innovative VariPulse technology, which enables therapeutic heat energy to safely travel deeper into the skin, resulting in increased blood circulation, noticeable skin tightening, and immediately plumped and glowing skin.

Sun Damage Prevention & Treatments

Your Face Starts Here – Don’t Forget to Protect!

Your facial presentation begins at your open collar so don’t forget to protect the décolleté and neck! Overexposure to the sun’s dangerous ultraviolet (UV) light can lead to skin cancer and precancers like actinic keratoses (AKs). Since sun damage accumulates over time, it’s never too late to start a sun protection regimen. Many people remember to put sunscreen on their face, but forget to apply sunscreen to the décolleté area (neck and chest). Here are a few tips for prevention:

  • Use sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher. Sunscreen is one of the keys to radiant, youthful-looking skin. Daily use may even lower your long-term risk of skin cancer.
  • Exfoliate. The buildup of stratum corneum (the dead, outermost skin cell layer) can make skin appear blotchy and uneven.
  • Hydrate. Summer exposure to sun, chlorine, and salt water can dry out your skin – even the heels of your feet can be affected.
  • Antioxidants. A variety of antioxidants can improve the health and quality of your skin, and can even reverse some discoloration and wrinkles.

Skin Treatment Options

At Zimmet Vein & Dermatology, we offer a number of treatments that can reduce the effects of sun damage on your neck and chest including:

  • Advanced Fotofacial Rejuvenation
  • BLU-Light Photodynamic Therapy
  • EXCEL V™
  • Peels
  • Skin Resurfacing
  • Q-Swtiched Nd:YAG

Skin Tightening Options

As we age, our skin begins to lose its firmness for many reasons — sun, gravity, slowing collagen production. There are things you can do! We offer effective, non-invasive skin-tightening treatments that reduce sagging and help restore your skin’s elasticity on your neck and chest.

  • Venus Legacy™
  • Ultherapy®

Austin Botox® for Excessive Underarm Sweating

Botox®  for Excessive Underarm Sweating | Austin DermatologyExcessive sweating, known in medical dermatology as axillary hyperhidrosis, is a common condition, with more than a million Americans estimated to be affected by it. A person can sweat up to four times more than others in this condition in order to maintain regular body temperature.

The condition can cause difficulties in the performance of everyday chores, create itching and discomfort, and make a person feel less confident in social settings.

Botox® , which is popularly used as a facial anti-aging injectable, has an additional application as a treatment for excessive underarm sweating. The FDA has approved Botox® for treating excess sweating under the arms. The effects of Botox® for this purpose can last for up to two years. Dr. Steven Zimmet is an experienced dermatologist providing Botox® for excessive underam sweating. Dr. Zimmet provides various skin care procedures to patients in Austin, TX and surrounding locations.


FDA Approved

The FDA gave its approval for Botox® as a treatment for axillary hyperhidrosis in cases where topical creams and anti-perspirants do not offer relief. Severe sweating symptoms can be treated by injecting directly into the underarm area. The treatment can be provided to people above the age of 18 if they have not achieved satisfactory relief with topical dermatology solutions.

Patients should carefully note that Botox® has only been approved by the FDA for treating excessive sweating in the underarm area. According to the FDA, it remains undetermined as of now whether Botox® can be used safely and effectively to treat excessive sweating in other parts of the body.

The procedure to treat hyperhidrois is very similar to that of the cosmetic facial anti-aging treatment with Botox® . But it is important that the dermatologist should assess the severity of sweating prior to recommending Botox® as a solution. Dr. Zimmet receives patients from Austin, TX and nearby areas for a wide range of skin care procedures.


How does it Work?

Botulinum toxin A is a potent biological substance and a nerve immobilizer, which constitutes the key ingredient in Botox® . When the Botox® provider injects this neurotoxin directly into the affected area, it will block communication signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. With the nerve communication blocked, the overactive sweat glands will stop functioning, which will bring an end to the excessive sweating.

The excess sweat eliminated with this treatment does not get collected elsewhere in the body. Botox® injections will simply halt the production of sweat in the targeted areas. However, sweating in other parts of the body will continue as before. Patients should have a clear understanding of the potential effectiveness of Botox® for underarm sweating before they commit to the procedure.


Procedure and Results

Based on an assessment of the severity of the underarm sweating, the dermatologist will prepare a Botox® injection plan. The medication will be delivered into the affected areas in the armpits with the help of fine needles. Significant reduction in underarm sweating can be noticed in about one month after the treatment. Relief will usually sustain for about six months with Botox® , but individual results may vary.
