Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are FDA-approved to treat frown lines between the eyebrows using Botulinum toxin type A. Dermatologists can also provide off-label treatments of these injections to diminish crow’s feet, brow asymmetry, lip wrinkles, and neck banding. Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin procedures take only a few minutes. During the process, you’ll receive tiny injections directly into the targeted muscle. While no anesthesia is required, you can request a topical anesthetic or cold packs to reduce any discomfort.
Dermal fillers are injections that fade away wrinkles by adding volume to your face. Fillers are great options to consider if you’re looking to target the stubborn lines around your eyes, nose, and corners of the mouth. Dermatologists can also use fillers to define and plump the lips. After a thorough skin analysis, we’ll choose the best filler formulation for your skin to achieve the results you desire.
Facelifts are highly customized surgeries that rebuild a smooth, firm, and youthful appearance to your face. One of the most common cosmetic procedures, facelifts effectively correct thinning skin, jowls, wrinkles, and folds while plumping the cheeks and contouring the neck and jawline. Facelifts require a few months to fully heal, but most people return to normal activities within two to four weeks. The results last up to 15 years.
Liposuction, sometimes called “lipo,” slims and reshapes the body by surgically removing excess fat. Appropriate for healthy adults within 30% of their ideal weight, liposuction contours areas such as the abdomen, thighs, hips, and back. This invasive plastic surgery requires downtime to heal, but the results are permanent for patients who maintain a healthy weight and fitness protocol. Most people experience optimal changes after one procedure but may require another surgery in some cases.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy commonly known as "vampire facelift", "vampire microneedling" and "vampire facial", uses a concentration of your blood platelets to reduce wrinkles or scars on the face, neck, and hands. At Gold Coast Dermatology, we prepare PRP injections by taking your blood and running it through a centrifuge, creating activated platelets that we inject directly into the problem areas. This process stimulates your body’s natural collagen synthesis to tighten, smooth, and balance uneven tones and textures. The process takes about 45 minutes, and the results appear within a few weeks.
Also called “micropenning,” microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that stimulates collagen production for tighter, fuller-looking skin. By creating thousands of targeted micro-injuries to your dermis, this treatment triggers natural cell turnover to reveal smoother skin over time. It improves stretch marks, fine lines, acne scars, deep wrinkles, and photodamage. An effective maintenance treatment, microneedling delivers anti-aging results that last for months.
Sometimes called IPL photorejuvenation, these anti-aging treatments use Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) laser technology to significantly improve brown spots, redness, sun damage, and visible blood vessels. The technology quickly creates more balanced skin tones and textures on your arms, hands, and neck. The best part is IPL lasers are gentle and non-invasive.
Chemical peels are simple, effective treatments to revitalize the skin on your face, neck, or hands. Anti-aging peels work by exfoliating the dead, damaged outer layer of your skin to reveal a smoother, tighter, more even complexion below the surface. These topical solutions can quickly minimize sun damage, fine lines, discoloration, and acne marks with minimal downtime.
Facials are one of the best regular protocols to maintain healthy and beautiful skin. Facials help clean, exfoliate and de-stress the skin, promoting a clear, well-hydrated complexion. Expert aestheticians will analyze your skin and treat your problem areas with potent, nourishing formulas to keep you looking younger and refreshed.
As you age, loss of muscle tone and thinning skin can highlight the “submental fat” pockets under your chin. Fortunately, there is non-surgical option that effectively dissolves the fat cells through a series of deoxycholic acid injections. Deoxycholic acid is a chemical compound found in human bile that aids digestion of fats. Kybella is a noninvasive, non-surgical procedure, and the only FDA-approved injectable that targets the dreaded double chin. The results generally take effect after two to four treatments.
BEFORE & AFTER
Laser therapy is a great option to treat facial veins and spider veins on the legs. For best results, most dermatologists combine laser treatments with sclerotherapy injections to even out the skin. Leg veins come in many forms, so we’ll examine your skin to determine the most effective treatment protocol. You may experience temporary redness and swelling, but after a few days, you’ll appreciate the transformation.
SCLEROTHERAPY BEFORE & AFTER
Split, stretched, or injured earlobes are common, especially for people who wear heavy earrings over long periods. Congenital factors may also cause split earlobes. Fortunately, we can reverse and repair damage through a simple surgical procedure using local anesthesia. Following earlobe repair, also known as lobuloplasty, most patients return immediately to daily activities with mild soreness that subsides after a few weeks.
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is an FDA-approved therapy to treat precancerous lesions called actinic keratosis (AK’s), acne, photoaging, and some superficial skin cancers. PDT is a unique treatment using a topical medication that is activated by light to destroy damaged cells. Downtime includes redness and scaliness for a few days.
In some cases, it’s appropriate to use professional home systems to enhance the efficacy of in-office treatments. These simple kits help you maintain younger, healthier, more radiant skin for an extended period in between office visits. Plus, you can easily integrate professional home systems with your daily skincare regime for longer-lasting results.
