Have you begun to develop unsightly wrinkles, frown lines and crows feet? Are you ready to visit Larry Landsman, MD, PA at The Aesthetic Dermatology Center of Vero Beach in Vero Beach, FL to get rid of them once and for all? If so, you might be considering a procedure such as Botox.Dysport

What you need to know, however, is that Botox is not your only option for fast and easy wrinkle removable in Vero Beach, FL. Dr. Landsman also offers a great Botox alternative you may want to consider called Dysport.

What is Dysport?

Dysport is a cosmetic procedure in which a medical professional carefully injects a toxin known as abobotulinumtoxinA (Botulinum toxin type A) into your muscle. When done correctly, these injections can be used to treat upper limb spasticity and cervical dystonia as well as wrinkles, crow's feet and frown lines--all without surgery or major downtime.

What are the Benefits of Dysport?

Dysport is a quick, easy and nearly painless procedure that offers the significant reduction of wrinkles within a matter of days. The procedure is safer and far less invasive than plastic surgery, and the downtime is minimal. The effects wear off after about three months, so if you aren't pleased with your results, they aren't permanent.

To learn more about the advantages and disadvantages of Dysport and Botox, call Dr. Landsman in Vero Beach, FL to discuss your options and to figure out which one might be right for you.

Is Dysport Safe?

Yes, the FDA has approved Dysport as a safe and effective treatment. This does not mean it is without any side effects, however. Common side effects of Dysport include bruising, bleeding, pain, swelling, headache, fever, cold-like symptoms, muscle weakness at the site of the injection and tiredness, among others. Seek medical help immediately if you experience trouble breathing or talking, excessive swelling, severe muscle weakness, a change in heartbeat, chest pain or loss of bladder control.

Dysport is not for individuals who have amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, asthma, facial muscle weakness, bleeding disorders, heart disease or diabetes. It also may not be appropriate for those who are pregnant or who may become pregnant or those who have had surgery or other botulinum toxin injections recently. Speak with your doctor about your health history and your risk before having the procedure done.

If you're ready to look youthful and vibrant again, but you don't want to undergo major surgery or spend a great deal of time recovering, Dysport or Botox may be right for you! Call Dr. Landsman in Vero Beach, FL to set up an appointment for a consultation today. Your new, youthful appearance may be easier to achieve than you think!

Find out more about getting Botox in Vero Beach, FL and how it could improve the look of your skin.

When the New Year hits many people start considering ways to spruce up their look. For some, it’s a new hairstyle while others may vow to lose weight and be healthier in the year to come. But for many they turn to their Vero Beach, FL dermatologist Dr. Larry BotoxLandsman for cosmetic treatments like Botox to refresh their look.

How does Botox work?

When Botox is injected into the skin it blocks the signals that are sent from the nerves to the muscles telling them to contract. Since the muscles are unable to contract, this softens the look of fine lines and wrinkles.

Botox is most often used on crow’s feet, frown lines and forehead wrinkles. Do note that wrinkles caused by sun damage will not respond to Botox treatment.

What is the Botox procedure like?

Getting Botox is extremely fast, only taking a couple minutes to administer. This treatment is often performed without anesthesia, but patients may opt for a topical anesthetic prior to Botox injections to reduce any discomfort. Then a series of thin needles will be injected into certain areas of the skin, depending on the wrinkles you are looking to treat.

After your Botox treatment you will start to see results in about a week (but sometimes as soon as a couple days).

How long will my results last?

Most patients will get to enjoy the results of their Botox treatment for up to six months. As the muscles are able to contract again you will notice that some of your lines and wrinkles will appear, but they will most often appear less severe than they were before your treatment. Fortunately, you can get Botox from your Vero Beach, FL skin doctor Dr. Landsman every few months to help maintain your new look.

If you want to find out how our cosmetic treatments can improve your appearance than it’s time you scheduled an appointment with Dr. Landsman at The Aesthetic Dermatology Center of Vero Beach to find out if Botox is right for you!

As we age, wrinkles and sagging skin are inevitable. Unfortunately, for women and men alike, aging skin goes hand in hand with lowered confidence. Luckily, there is a way to boost that confidence back up by adding volume to sagging cheeks, smoothing out pesky wrinkles and providing an overall more youthful appearance.Jevederm

What is Juvederm? 
Juvederm is an FDA-approved injectable gel filler, used to plump cheeks and smooth wrinkles. It is a family made up of cross-linked hyaluronic acid, with lasting results of up to a year. Approved for cosmetic use in 2006, Juvederm has two forms:

  • Juvederm XC: This form of Juvederm is used to smooth lines and wrinkles around the mouth, such as marionette lips, smile lines, vertical lip lines and corner lines. Juvederm XC contains lidocaine, making the procedure less painful, and patients can see results for up to one year.
  • Juvederm Voluma XC: Juvederm Voluma XC is used to plump the apples of the cheeks and the surrounding areas. It can provide results for up to two years, and contains lidocaine to promote comfort during the procedure.

While made by the same manufacturer as Botox, the two work differently. Botox targets the muscles lying under the skin, essentially reducing the activity of those muscles to cut out the source of lines and wrinkles. Juvederm actually fills the skin to smooth wrinkles and plump cheeks.

What makes Juvederm different from other fillers?

  • Versatile: Juvederm has been studied in all skin types and is the first hyaluronic acid filler proven to be equally effective in persons of color.
  • Lasting: Since the Juvederm XC formula uses Hylacross technology, providing cross-linked hyaluronic acids, results are immediate and last for up to a year with just one session.
  • Easy: Juvederm contains lidocaine, an option that comes at an extra cost with other fillers. Typical treatments last only about 15 minutes with minimal downtime.
  • Safe: Since hyaluronic acids are biodegradable, Juvederm breaks down over time and is safely absorbed into the body unnoticed and with no effects.

Dr. Larry Landsman at the Aesthetic Dermatology Center in Vero Beach, FL is an expert in reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Visit www.drlarrylandsman.com to schedule a consultation for Juvederm today.

Learn about the different issues that Botox in Vero Beach can handle.

Are you interested in seeing what your Vero Beach dermatologist, Dr. Larry Landsman can do to treat those annoying crow’s feet or Botoxforehead wrinkles? Then learn more about Botox and how it could easily smooth out common facial wrinkles.

What is Botox?

Botox is made from a neurotoxin that is produced by the bacterium known as botulinum toxin. When injected into the skin, Botox is used to temporarily paralyze certain muscle groups to decrease the development of future wrinkles and to smooth out the appearance of current ones.

What can Botox be used to treat?

Wondering if Botox could tackle your skin issues? Botox is FDA-approved to treat fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes (also known as crow’s feet), forehead, mouth and chin. However, Botox is being used more and more for non-cosmetic treatments. In fact, there are over 20 different medical conditions that Botox has been known to improve: Some of these conditions include,

Eyelid spasms: Many conditions that cause involuntary muscle contractions like this one can be relaxed with Botox injections.

Strabismus (crossed eyes): One of the most common causes of crossed eyes is a muscular imbalance, which can sometimes be corrected with Botox treatment.

Chronic migraines: Botox may be able to alleviate migraine headaches in those who experience them about 15 days out of the month.

Cervical dystonia: This condition causes the neck muscles to contract automatically, causing the head to turn in awkward and painful positions. Botox can reduce or even eliminate these painful contractions.

Overactive bladder: Botox has also been FDA-approved to treat urinary incontinence due to an overactive bladder.

Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating): Botox injections can be administered into the armpits to reduce sweat gland over-activity and reduce persistent and severe sweating.

If you are dealing with any of these health or cosmetic issues and are interested in finding out whether Botox could help then schedule an appointment with your Vero Beach dermatologist.

Ready to get Botox? The treatment is fast and effective. You’ll be in and out of our office in no time. Call Dr. Larry Landsman Dermatology today to schedule your Botox appointment.

Skin cancer - it affects 1 in 5 Americans at some point in their lives. While it can be cured if caught early, why should anyone have to put up with the worry and treatment involved in eliminating basal cell or squamous cell carcinoma or the potentially deadly Skin Cancer melanoma?

An old adage says that "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." Dermatologists across the United States would agree. Here are several common sense ways to protect you and yours from skin cancer.

Protection #1: Look at your skin regularly. Know if spots or moles are changing - a common sign of developing cancer. The Skin Cancer Foundation says everyone should know these ABCDE's of detecting melanoma:

A: if a mole becomes asymmetrical, show it to your doctor right away.
B: The borders of a mole should be smooth. Danger signs are an uneven or notched edge.
C: Color of a non-cancerous mole is typically brown. Multiple colors may indicate cancer.
D: Diameter of a mole should be smaller than a pencil eraser. Bigger may mean melanoma.
E: When a mole evolves or changes, beware, and see your Vero Beach, FL  dermatologist, Dr. Larry Landsman.

Protection #2: Consult a dermatologist for a routine skin exam every year, beginning at age 40.

Protection #3: Enjoy the sunshine but recognize its dangers. Do everything to limit exposure. The Center for Disease Control & Prevention emphasizes that the ultraviolet (UV) rays of the sun can burn and damage the skin within 15 minutes.

How to limit sun exposure and lower your cancer risk

Basically, people need to put something in between their skin and the sun. One of the simplest barriers is the shade. When your time out in the sun reaches the 15 minute mark, go indoors, under a tree or under a beach umbrella. Dermatologists recommend that everyone should avoid the direct sun during the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Also, sun which reflects off water, sand, concrete, and snow can be damaging, too, and take precautions even on foggy and cloudy days.

In addition, cover up. Wear light, long-sleeved clothing and a hat with a wide brim. Surprisingly, dark colors are best, and dry clothes confer more protection than wet ones. Choose quality sunglasses for you, your adult family members and for little ones, too. Sunglasses should wrap around the face, keeping sunshine from entering from the sides.

Another important way to limit sun exposure is consistent application of sunscreen lotion. Look for a product that has a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of 15 or higher, and apply it to all areas of exposed skin, including tops of the ears and back of the neck.
