What Is Trap Tox or Barbie Botox®, and Does It Make Sense to You?

Trap tox involves the treatment of the trapezius muscles that connect the neck to the shoulder using toxin – the same as what we use for lines and wrinkles on the face. The trapezius muscles are a workhorse and influence many of our movements, including shrugging and lifting over the head. Often, neck tension and resultant headaches – even back pain – can be traced to overly tight trapezius muscles. This can cause significant discomfort and even disability. Because our muscles and nerves are interconnected, it’s not always obvious where […]

Coolsculpting® vs. Emsculpt® – What’s Best for You?

When it comes to procedures that improve your shape, it’s not hard to see why non-invasive body contouring treatments have generated so much buzz. Done at your doctor’s office with no needles or scalpels, these procedures help you target stubborn areas of fat on your body, just like liposuction or other forms of mild cosmetic surgery – with little, if any, downtime. Two of these treatments are especially popular: CoolSculpting® and Emsculpt®. Both use non-invasive techniques, but the way each works is very different. Want the scoop on sculpting? We’ve […]

Maximizing Your Botox® Treatment – Dermatologist Tips

We all know that Botox® is a great way to minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles, not to mention achieve a more youthful look. But if you’re like most patients, you don’t want to do it every month (or even every other month). The cost of Botox injections can add up quickly, and taking time out of your day to visit your dermatologist is inconvenient. When done correctly, you should be able to see the results of a Botox treatment for anywhere from three to four months. So, […]

Comparing Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®

When our patients want to reduce wrinkles, our dermatologists frequently recommend neuromodulator injections as a treatment. And for good reason. They’re relatively inexpensive, can be administered in the office, and have few side effects when performed correctly. Most people know neuromodulator treatments by one of the seemingly ubiquitous brand names: Botox®. But there are several others on the market as well. While they all work roughly the same way, there are slight differences between them. In this primer, we’ll compare three of the most well-known neuromodulators: Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®.

As a health-conscious person, you’re probably already familiar with the risks of not wearing sunscreen when you step out into the sun. But should you slather on the SPF for a quick drive-thru run or weekend road trip? Yes! Your skin needs protection when exposed to the sun’s rays — including inside your car. Here’s the what, why, and how of in-vehicle sun protection.

Lip Flip: What You Need to Know

While it might have a funny name, lip flips have become extremely popular. Influencers on TikTok and other social media sites are singing the praises of this in-office cosmetic procedure, promoting its ability to add a full look to the lips without the swollen, artificial look that can result from too much lip filler.
