 Dr. Trent Injects Juvederm Ultra Plus XC to Lift the Corners of the Mouth

Frustrated about fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth? Do people keep telling you that you look sad but you are really happy? Lips becoming too thin or invisible? Dr. Trent's secret weapons for these common problems are Juvederm Volbella and Juvederm Ultra Plus. She can gently fill in the lines around  the mouth and redefine the borders of the lips to give them a natural shape and pout. 👄 Topical numbing is used for the procedure and there is little to none downtime after the injections. Afterwards, some people may experience temporary redness, bruising or swelling for a few days. Results are immediate and can last up to 12 months!

As with any procedure, make sure to have a qualified professional performing it.  Always ask a qualified professional if these procedures and products are right for you.

5 Myths about Botox...guys pay attention to Myth #3!!

MYTH #1

BOTOX® Cosmetic will make you look like you’ve had work done

BOTOX® Cosmetic subtly smoothes the moderate to severe lines, such as the lines around your eyes and between your brows. No one needs to know—you will still look like you, just more relaxed.

MYTH #2

BOTOX® Cosmetic takes too much time out of your day

BOTOX® Cosmetic can work for people with busy schedules. Treatment takes about 10 minutes and requires no downtime or recovery. 

MYTH #3

BOTOX® Cosmetic is only for women

Nope, think again. BOTOX® Cosmetic is FDA approved to treat all appropriate adults. In clinical studies for moderate to severe frown lines and crow’s feet, 17.5% and about 12%, respectively, of patients treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic were men. Ask your specialist if BOTOX® Cosmetic is right for you.

MYTH #4

BOTOX® Cosmetic is new and untested

Not true. In 2002, BOTOX® Cosmetic became the first FDA-approved product to temporarily improve moderate to severe frown lines. And in 2013, it became the first and only FDA-approved product to temporarily improve moderate to severe crow’s feet. 

Plus, it’s one of the most widely studied and researched medical aesthetic products.

Should you decide to give Brotox a try—none of us are getting any younger, after all—discuss the effect you’re hoping to achieve with Dr. Trent.

Skin Care for Florida Summer

It is critical that you take care of your skin, especially in summertime when the UV levels are at their highest and most damaging.  Sunburns, as well as cumulative sun exposure over time, will lead to skin cancer.  Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the US.  One in five Americans will develop some form of skin cancer in their lifetime, some of them will die from it. Not only can sun exposure lead to skin cancer, but it can also cause premature aging and dull, wrinkled skin.  Here are some easy tips to help your skin this summer.

  1. Cleanse - Cleansing is the first step in a good skin care regimen.  Most people get oilier in the summer.  If this is the case for you, you might consider switching to a foaming cleanser, gel cleanser, or a cleanser with salicylic acid in it.
  2. Exfoliate - Exfoliators are great at removing dead skin cells which make our skin appear dull and rough.  Dead skin cells harbor pollutants, buildup of products and daily grime.  Not only  do exfoliators make our skin look more radiant, but they also help skin cells regenerate more quickly.  Just be careful, since they can make your skin more sensitive to the sun’s harmful rays.  It might be safer to use them at night.
  3. Hydrate - Everyone knows that drinking water helps your body function properly, flushes toxins out of your body, and prevents dehydration, which can occur in the hot summer months.   Hydration is equally as important for the skin.  The sun can dry out your skin especially if you get sunburned. Chlorinated pools also wreak havoc on your skin.   While you might not need a heavy cream or petrolatum based moisturizer in the  summer, you can switch to a lighter lotion based or gel moisturizer.
  4. Protect - It is very important to protect your skin from the harmful rays of the summer sun.  A broad spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30-50 that has both UVA and UVB protection is best.  You must apply 1 oz to cover your entire body (1/4 teaspoon or nickel size just for your face) every day and every 1-2 hours during the day.  If you are using a physical sunscreen, like zinc oxide or titanium dioxide, you can apply it right before you are exposed to the  sun.  If you are using a chemical sunscreen, like avobenzone, you must apply it 30 minutes prior to sun exposure.  Some makeups and moisturizers now come with SPF.  Don’t forget lipstick, lip balm or chapstick with SPF 30-50 as well.  Other necessary accessories for protecting yourself in the sun are a wide brim hat, sunglasses with UVA/UVB protection, and sun protection clothes with UPF 30-50.  Antioxidants, such as Vitamin C, can help protect the skin by limiting the production of free radicals, which can damage skin cells and decrease collagen production which leads to aging and wrinkling.
  5. Sunless tanning - If you must have a tan for summer, the only safe tan is a sunless tan.  Dihydroxyacetone is the ingredient in sunless tanning creams and spray tans.  It safely coats the outer dead skin cells. Stay away from tanning beds, as they are more deadly than the sun.  Also, avoid tanning pills, as they are not FDA approved and can cause bad side effects
  6. Sun burns - If you do get a sunburn, there are things you can do to lessen the symptoms; however,  you can never reverse the damage.  Aloe vera can help soothe the skin. Cool compresses and cool showers can also soothe the skin. You must drink plenty of fluids and stay well hydrated. It is important to keep the skin well moisturized, but  not with petrolatum based moisturizers as they can lock in heat.  NSAIDS and hydrocortisone 1% cream can alleviate some of the redness and inflammation. If you get blistering or develop fevers, chills, confusion or pus, you should go to the emergency room.

Wishing everyone a fun, safe summer! Don't forget to schedule your yearly skin check.
