Contouring Tips From Tracy

My favorite product to compliment Voluma is a jane irdale bronzer. It gives a really nice glow to the face when applied like the number three, starting on the forehead, going to the cheeks, and then pulling it around to the chin. This tip enhances the effect of the cheek filler. The bronzer usually lasts about six months and my absolute favorite shade is moonglow!

Voluma XC Injectables

Voluma is such a great starter filler, especially for women under the age of 40. Just by using one tube on the apples of the cheeks makes such a nice subtle lift and improvement. Makeup contouring is very popular right now and Voluma is a great way of having built in cheek contouring. Plus it lasts up to two years!

Laser Hair Removal

What does the treatment feel like?

Optimizing patient comfort and safety is extremely important, this is why Dermacare has invested in the most advanced lasers and innovative cooling air systems available. During the treatment the actual laser hand piece cools and soothes the skin, plus an additional cooling air system is available to the patient for even greater comfort. Some patients have described the sensation during treatment as mild pinching or stinging as a small pulse of light from the laser is delivered. No topical anesthesia or pain medication is typically required.

What should I expect after the treatment?

The patient may experience mild redness or swelling immediately following treatment. Most of the hair targeted by the laser will shed 7 to 10 days post treatment. The patient should not wax or tweeze between treatments, but shaving is allowed.

Who can be treated?

Dermacare's lasers are designed to treat all skin types, from light to dark, for both men and woman. To determine if you are a candidate for laser hair removal treatments you will need to schedule a complimentary consultation with Dermacare of Gainesville to review individual dermatological factors such as skin type, hair color, hair thickness, location of the hair, and medical history.

How many treatments are necessary?

Most patients will need an average of 5-7 treatments. However, the amount of treatments necessary in order to achieve optimal long-term benefits depends on multiple factors: hair growth cycle, hormones, medications, etc. Not all the hairs are growing at the same time as they go through three phases: growth, regression, and resting. Laser hair removal treatment plans are designed to disable the hairs that are mainly in the active growth phase at the time of treatment. Since the individual hairs enter the active growth phase at different times, additional treatments may be necessary.

Juvéderm ® Dermal Filler

What are Dermal Fillers?

juvedermJuvéderm dermal fillers can take years off your appearance by replacing lost volume to create a more attractive, youthful appearance. It is a great alternative to surgical procedures as it provides immediate satisfaction with little to no downtime while maintaining a natural look.

Dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid-based products or collagen substances that are injected into the skin to add needed volume. In the human body, hyaluronic acid provides volume and fullness to the skin, while collagen is responsible for the skin's "firmness". With each decade that passes, hyaluronic acid and collagen are lost, causing the facial volume to diminish. This loss results in the creation of wrinkles and folds, thinner lips and "smoker lines" around the lip line.

Indications:

  • Smile lines or nasolabial folds (the "parentheses" from the nose to the corner of the mouth)
  • Marionette lines or oral commissures (facial lines that extend down from the corner of the mouth)
  • Lip line or vermillion border
  • Lip enhancement

What is a Dermal Filler treatment like?

The filler is injected into the treatment site in small amounts by an ultrafine needle. Some patients may experience discomfort during the treatment, but most tolerate it quite well. A dental block (lidocaine injection), topical anesthetic, and fillers with added lidocaine are available for the patient's comfort.

What is BOTOX®?

A BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment is a fast, virtually painless, non-surgical procedure designed to temporarily smooth and soften moderate to severe frown lines and wrinkles caused by overly expressive muscles. Every day more and more people are coming to know the benefits of a Botox treatment to make them look and feel more refreshed.

Before/After photos below show a patient trying to frown before and after BOTOX® treatment.

BOTOX

Indications:

  • Frown lines
  • Forehead furrows
  • Crow's Feet
  • Down-turned smile
  • and more...

What is a BOTOX® treatment like?

BOTOX® is a relatively quick and easy treatment. Tiny needles (similar to those used for Insulin injections) are used to make a few strategically mapped injections. Some patients have described the sensation during treatment as a mosquito bite.

What should I expect after the treatment?

Mild redness and swelling can occur at the injection site, but usually resolves in a few hours. First-time BOTOX® patients will see beautiful results within 14 days, while repeat BOTOX® patients often see effects sooner. BOTOX® gently relaxes overly expressive muscles that leave a line or furrow as the years progress. BOTOX® is not a "one-size-fits-all" injection. Each patient has a customized treatment plan which includes injecting as much or as little as needed to achieve the desired outcome. Our highly-trained Gainesville Florida Botox medical professionals are skilled in the art of injecting BOTOX® to maximize wrinkle reduction yet allow natural-looking facial expressions.

Is BOTOX® FDA approved?

Yes, BOTOX® has been FDA approved since 2002 attesting to its safety and effectiveness. Botox was FDA approved for temporary improvement of glabellar lines (wrinkles between the eyebrows known as frown lines), and in 2013 it was FDA approved for temporary improvement of crow's feet. 

A major study investigating the safe and effective use of BOTOX® for forehead wrinkles was completed in 1995 with a review published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology. BOTOX® injections have become the single most popular non-surgical, cosmetic dermatology procedure in the United States, and is offered by Dermacare of Gainesville.
