  3. 3. Q&A Treatment Spotlight with Dr. Keith Schumann Exploring the world of cosmetic dermatology3 Q: Are any skin care products better than Botox? A: Several products such as StriVectin-SD and Wrinkle Relax claim to be better than Botox for the treatment of facial lines. Unfortunately, no topical product can give“Botox-like”results. A recent comparative study found both StriVectin-SD and Wrinkle Relax no better than placebo. Products that do provide benefits include alpha hydroxy acids, vitamin A and vitamin C. Skincafoc T he future of skin resurfacing has arrived! ActiveFx—with the Lumenis Ultrapulse EncoreTM laser—provides our active patients with an extremely effective, safe, convenient, single-treatment choice for both wrinkles and discolorations. This treatment, known as laser skin resurfacing (LSR), can also be tailored to improve mild to moderate acne scars. LSRhasalwaysbeenthegoldstandard for laser treatment of photodamaged and wrinkled skin. Results were consistently impressive, but so was the “down time.” Patients had to recover at home for 1 to 2 weeks and usually had months of facial redness following the procedure. That doesn’t sound very appealing! Now we can yield similar results with only a few days of down time. Treatment only requires topical anesthesia and can be completed in 20 to 30 minutes. Results last years. Active FX delivers tighter, younger looking skin with less of the downsides of traditional LSR by using a single pass, coolscan technique that leaves bridges of normal skin in place. These bridges help the skin refresh quicker after the damaged skin has been vaporized. Unlike IPL and Thermage, there is some recovery time involved with this procedure. Most patients can expect to be “out and about” in 4 to 5 days. ActivFX may be the next step for patients who have had other treatments, or it may be the first treatment considered. It will likely deliver more dramatic and consistent results than Thermage for skin tightening and the two treatments together may be additive. New procedures continue to develop at a rapid rate for the aesthetic skin care market; however, several technologies developed this past year have not lived up to the “buzz” they generated. At Schumann Dermatology Group, we continue to evaluate all the new technologies and will continue to add worthy procedures and share our thoughts with you. Schedule an appointment with us to discuss any of the latest procedures or products. We’re excited to offer ActivFX and fully expect many new advancements this year. “At 20 you have the face you were born with. At 60 you have the face you deserve.” You deserve better. We can help. The future of skin resurfacing has arrived.
