What your dermatologist in Ponte Vedra Beach and Jacksonville, FL wants you to know
The normal aging process changes your body and your face! Your skin loses elasticity and moisture which eventually causes small wrinkles and frown lines. Fortunately, you can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with Botox!
Dr. Sanjiva Goyal at Coastal Dermatology & MedSpa wants to share how Botox can help you look younger. He has two convenient office locations in Jacksonville and Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida to take care of your skincare needs.
So, what is Botox? Botox is an injectable material produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It has the amazing ability to temporarily “freeze” or paralyze muscles and nerves, making your skin appear smooth and wrinkle-free.
Botox is very effective in reducing the appearance of:
- Crow’s feet, showing up at the corners of your eyes
- Furrows, those annoying frown lines in your forehead
- Glabella, the unattractive lines between your eyebrows
Botox treatment involves injecting small amounts of material into your skin using a tiny, ultra-thin needle. Treatment is tolerated well. The number of injections will vary depending on the number of areas treated.
People love Botox treatment because there is no downtime, so you can go back to enjoying your day immediately after treatment. You will enjoy the rejuvenating effects of your Botox treatment up to 3-6 months.

VASER Lipo is an innovative liposuction method for eliminating excess fat from certain areas of the body. Stubborn fat is removed and the skin’s surface is smoothed, creating a more toned appearance so you can look and feel your best. VASER Lipo is a minimally invasive procedure that utilizes ultrasound waves to break up areas of fat. Recovery is quick and there is minimal discomfort. VASER Lipo can be performed by Dr. Sanjiva Goyal, your Jacksonville and Ponte Vedra Beach, FL dermatologist, at Coastal Dermatology & MedSpa.
The VASER Lipo procedure is relatively simple and non-invasive as compared to other liposuction techniques. The target area of the body is first injected with a saline solution. Then, a small probe sends ultrasound energy to the area to break up excess fat, which is removed through a thin tube called a cannula. A gentle suction is used to guide the fat through the cannula. A unique aspect of the VASER Lipo procedure is that other surrounding tissues are left untouched as fatty tissue is targeted, which produces less discomfort and trauma.
Benefits of VASER Lipo
VASER Lipo offers many benefits over other liposuction procedures. Your Jacksonville and Ponte Vedra Beach dermatologist can help you decide if VASER Lipo is right for you. Some of its benefits include:
- The procedure is minimally invasive.
- Produces visible results in a single visit.
- Large amounts of stored fat are easily eliminated.
- Targets fatty tissue, while sparing other surrounding tissues.
- Accentuates and refines the appearance of muscles to create a more toned look.
- Creates smoother looking skin in delicate areas, such as the neck and arms.
- Less discomfort than traditional liposuction procedures.
- Shorter recovery time than traditional liposuction procedures.
VASER Lipo is an exciting technique for sculpting and contouring stubborn fatty areas of the body. Following the procedure, excess fat will be gone, skin will be smoother and muscles might even have a more toned appearance.
