The ICON Aesthetic System uses a targeted cooling process that safely destroys fat cells and leaves the surrounding structures unharmed. Being noninvasive, it requires minimal to no down time, and can be performed on almost any area of the body. In addition, it is effective for vessel and pigment clearance, the treatment of scars and stretch marks, reducing wrinkles and provides permanent hair reduction. In the treated area, it is typical to see as much as a 25 percent reduction in fat. The procedure is recommended in almost any part of the body, including the abdomen, hips, inner and outer thighs, love handles, arms, chin and bra fat. Contact us at our Southlake dermatology clinic for additional information.
Sculpsure is an FDA approved laser treatment for non-invasive lipolysis ideal for the treatment of stubborn fat. It provides permanent removal of fat cells in just 25 minutes.
In addition to these we offer a solution for your cosmetic concerns, including non-invasive treatments. For example, we can provide a treatment for loose, sagging skin and cellulite. We offer treatments that can stimulate the formation of new collagen for firmer skin and wrinkle reduction. Other treatments include our hydra-facial, dermaplaning and Kybella, a treatment that can provide you with a firmer, more youthful jawline. Radio frequency provides a safe procedure for heating deep fat deposit, ridding you of them permanently, while stimulating new collagen production.
Indoor tanning is especially popular among teens. Unfortunately, the link of indoor tanning with UVB enhanced and UVA emitting devices and melanoma is well established. Regardless of your age, the risk increase grows directly with the frequency in which you use these devices. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, indoor tanning is responsible for a 75% increase in the risk of melanoma. In addition, it is also responsible for premature aging and other types of skin cancer. Your dermatologist offers safer options for a healthy and natural looking tan.

Reducing Sun Damage
Damage from the sun to your skin can accumulate over time. Fortunately, help is available. From procedures to products that reduce skin discoloration from the sun, reduce pores and unclog them, even out pigment and reduce fine lines and flab, your dermatologist offers a solution for your skin concerns in our Southlake dermatology clinic.
Injectable fillers can add volume in areas where we have lost it and can also soften the effects of age lines. As we age, changes in fat, muscle and bone can cause the lower face to appear fuller. Fillers help increase volume to restore a more youthful appearance, by restoring youthful features such as high cheekbones, full cheeks and a defined jaw line.
How long the results of a filler last depend several factors, such as how quickly your body will metabolize the product, where it is injected, and the type of product. Most fillers will average lasting approximately 6-12 months, but up to 2 years is possible, again depending on the type and your individual metabolism. In addition, injectable filler is also useful for scar reduction. Ready to rejuvenate your appearance just in time for summer?

Basic Skin Care
Basic skin care always begins with the appropriate skin cleanser. Whether your skin type calls for a foaming cleanser, a beauty bar for sensitive skin or other, start fresh with clean skin. In your morning routine, apply sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher after cleaning.
In the evening, after cleaning, apply a retinoid every third day to avoid excessive peeling. Next, apply a moisturizer or hydration repair product. Moisturizing masks and eye masks for under-eye bags are also a means of improving your skins health and appearance. Eat more fruits and vegetables. They help to hydrate your skin, and provide skin protecting antioxidants. A consultation in our Southlake dermatology clinic will provide you with a comprehensive evaluation, and a regimen developed just for you and your skin.
Healthy skin is hydrated skin. Scorching temperatures and sweating is no excuse to avoid using a moisturizer. Moisturizers are available as lotion, cream or ointment. Those with dry skin should choose a thick cream or ointment. However, in the summer, your skin type may require a lighter formula. Your skin will produce more oil in the summer, and the use of heavy moisturizers with Shea butter and petroleum can result in clogged pores and breakouts. Dermatologists recommend the use of a lighter formula, ask your doctor in our Southlake dermatology to recommend one for your skin type during the summer season.
Those with eczema should practice the following tips:
- Avoid applying drying products to your skin.
