Sclerotherapy

Dr. Soares provides Sclerotherapy which is considered the best treatment for spider veins on the back and side of the calf and thigh areas. This procedure which has been used successfully for years, involves injecting a saline solution directly into the veins that causes their linings to contract and the veins to disappear. The veins normally fade over a 2 to 3 month period. The entire procedure takes about thirty minutes to complete. There may be mild discomfort from the injection, but this only lasts one or two minutes and delivers superior results for most patients.

Sclerotherapy treatments are less painful in the treatment of spider veins than laser spider vein removal. The cost of treating spider veins using sclerotherapy treatments are less expensive than laser spider vein removal. Not all veins respond to sclerotherapy and some may be better treated with our lasers or other procedures, but it is successful in treating fifty to eighty percent of the unsightly veins each session.

Advanced Associates in Dermatology serves patients requiring dermatology treatment in Cypress, Tomball, Humble, Kingwood, Spring, The Woodlands, Conroe, Katy, and the greater Houston area.

Skin Rejuvenation

Clear beautiful skin is in demand, and effectively treating superficial and benign vascular and pigmented lesions — including Telangiectasia’s, Rosacea, Poiklioderma and Angioma — has never been easier. Powered by elõs Technology, Syneron® skin rejuvenation systems safely and comfortably restores and rejuvenates the appearance of your skin.

How Skin Rejuvenation Works

The synergistic combination of optical and electrical energies offers a complete solution to the challenges of skin treatment with reduced overall required energy output — enabling a safe, effective treatment. Highly selective light energies are absorbed by the hemoglobin and pigmented lesions, but not significantly absorbed by the normal dermis. Electrical energies selectively heat blood vessels — while minimizing the effect on pigmented structure. The result is a more smooth skin texture and balanced skin tone, with virtually no downtime. Most people experience no side effects, though a few may exhibit some short-term local reddening or temporary darkening of pigmented lesions.

BOTOX®

Dr. Soares is renowned and recognized for his treatment of Botox, a very popular non-surgical treatment that visibly smoothes and removes wrinkles on the face, Crow’s feet, severe frown lines between your brows, forehead wrinkles, muscle tics and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating of the armpits). This outpatient procedure is performed with minimal risk and has revolutionized medical approach to treat wrinkles as opposed to more traditional surgical treatments to facial aging.

This procedure lasts 3 - 4 months and takes about 4 -10 days to show its full effects. During treatment, a few drops of BOTOX® Cosmetic are injected with a tiny needle into the muscle that creates a wrinkle. This blocks the nerve impulse from reaching that area resulting to a weakening of the muscle. As the muscle weakens, the skin overlying the muscle relaxes and the wrinkles in the skin gradually soften and often disappear.

Restylane

Restylane is a clear liquid gel, a non-animal-based Hyaluronic acid cosmetic filler for facial lines. This is a sugar that is naturally found in the body and provides volume and fullness to the skin. It is typically administered to patients age 35-60 with or without local anesthesia. It is very safe and requires no skin testing. Depending on the extent of the treatment, the procedure may last just a few minutes up to 30 minutes and patients normally return home after the procedure.

This treatment can be done in three simple steps:

Step 1: The doctor identifies injection points to be treated and applies anesthesia.
Step 2: The right amount of Restylane to be used for all the injection points is identified
Step 3: The Restylane filler is then injected beneath the skin. During this process Hyaluronic acid in the filler adheres to the skin to retain volume under the skin's surface. The water helps to preserve the renewed volume of the skin.

Juvéderm™

Juvéderm injectable gel is the "next-generation" Hyaluronic acid dermal filler and it is a sugar-based natural product. With Juvéderm™ the injection process takes only about 15 minutes and results are immediate and can lasts 6 months to a year. In fact, they are the fastest growing non-surgical aesthetic procedure in the United States according to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. The injectable gel is eased under the skin to provide a smooth, natural look and feel. Juvéderm™ is also proven to be safe and effective for persons of color.

This treatment will instantly smooth out those wrinkles or folds along the side of your nose and mouth and restore your skin’s volume. The results are instant, very smooth and natural, giving you the youthful and rejuvenated appearance.

Radiesse®

Radiesse® is an injectable gel is used to smooth skin folds and wrinkles. The procedure is performed using a small needle injection after the application of an anesthetic. Radiesse® injections have been shown to last for 12-18 months. However, individual results may vary. Radiesse® works to stimulate the production of collagen and encourage tissue regeneration, so it’s more than just a temporary filler. This remarkable new technology in maintaining a youthful appearance and advancement in facial line reduction is now available at Advanced Associates in Dermatology.

It is made from calcium hydroxyapatite and lasts 1 ½ years. Touch up treatments may be required from time to time. It is synthesized in microscopic spheres for use by injection in augmentation of soft tissue. No skin test is required. You may have swelling and bruising for a few days after the injections.

ReFirme™ Skin Treatment

The FDA-approved ReFirme ST Applicator offers virtually painless and fast treatment for skin renewal. Conventional skin treatments are time- and treatment-intensive and often too painful for many patients. ReFirme is ideal for targeting those telltale signs of aging, including, sagging under the eyes, saggy jowls, and nasolabial folds.

How ReFirme Works

The ReFirme™ ST procedure combines safe and effective levels of infrared light and bipolar radio frequency energies to remodel the dermal layer of the skin by stimulating new collagen growth. Both laser and radiofrequency have been used separately for decades in medicine and surgery, but the ST exclusively combines infrared light and bipolar radio-frequency energy for ideal treatment outcomes with a very low risk of side effects and virtually no down-time.

Most people experience no side effects, though a few may exhibit some short-term local reddening.

Laser Hair Removal

Hair Removal is one of the top five most popular non-invasive procedures. Powered by the revolutionary elõs Technology, the Syneron® Hair Removal applicator is setting new standards of speed, safety, and efficacy, in the removal of even minimally-pigmented hair colors, and all skin tones, including tanned skin. Results using conventional optical only systems are limited because they operate indirectly by superheating the melanin in the hair shaft and hope for enough collateral thermal damage. Syneron® Systems achieve superior results because they precisely target and destroy the hair follicle through a process known as Vortex heating.

How our Hair Removal Systems Work

Using revolutionary elõs Technology, our systems first preheat the target using optical energy, which creates a thermal path on which the radio frequency (RF) travels. RF is delivered directly to the hair follicle, which cannot conduct RF. The build-up of current density results in 4x heat coefficient thermal transfer. Under 80X magnification, distinct peri-follicular coagulation or bleaching is evident. The hair follicle is terminally disabled and denatured.

Minimal to no downtime

Most people experience no side effects, though a few may exhibit some short-term local reddening elõs advantages translate to enhanced patient comfort, convenience, & satisfaction.
