Kybella® is used to treat the “fullness below the chin”, “double chin” or the submental fat pad. Kybella® is an injection done in the office by Dr. Martinez. The injection is very safe and takes approximately 30 minutes. The medicine is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body. Kybella® permanently destroys the fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat and will not grow back, despite weight gain. Fat cleared from the treated area is processed and eliminated through your body’s natural metabolism and lymphatic system.
Immediately after the injection, the treated area will swell for several days, and then the skin will tighten, revealing a tighter more defined jaw and neckline. Most patients need 2—4 treatments spaced every 6-8 weeks. However, some patients will require more treatments. Once you achieve the result you desire, the fat reduction is permanent in the area treated.
Juvederm Family of Fillers by Allergan – Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Juvederm Volbella, Juvederm Vollure and Juvederm Voluma
As we age, the skin loses elasticity and patients may develop furrows, sagging, volume loss, and deeper wrinkles. Dermal fillers plump the skin and restore volume to improve the appearance of deeper wrinkles and folds. JUVEDERM is a smooth consistency gel made of Hyaluronic Acid – a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Dr. Martinez eases JUVEDERM injectable gel under the skin to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smoothe away facial wrinkles and folds. There are several forms of Juvederm available. Dr. Martinez will choose the appropriate form to address your specific concern and problem area. Commonly treated areas include the folds around the lips, “smile lines or parentheses”, hollow or sagging cheeks, jowls, lip lines, and thinning lips.
The injections are done only by Dr. Martinez in the Bee Cave Dermatology surgical suite.
Botox Cosmetic is the first and only FDA approved injectable neuropeptide treatment to smoothe and prevent moderate to severe forehead lines, crow’s feet lines and frown lines. When facial muscles contract, the skin overlying the muscles creases, causing wrinkles and folds. Botox is injected into the facial muscles, relaxing them. Subsequently, the lines in the skin soften, leaving your skin smoother and you feeling and looking more relaxed and refreshed. Results are dramatic; the procedure is quick with no down time. Results typically last 3-4 months and then repeat treatments will be needed. To ensure the best and safest results, all injections are performed by Dr. Martinez and only the FDA approved form of Botox A Cosmetic from Allergan is used at Bee Caves Dermatology.

Seborrheic keratoses are harmless, benign, noncancerous growths that can be flat , raised or rough. They range in colors from skin colored, pink, brown and even black .
Eskata is the only FDA approved topical treatment applied in the office for the cosmetic treatment and removal of seborrheic keratoses. Some patients complain of mild stinging during the treatment. After the medication is applied, the growths will turn white and may be slightly red or puffy. The patient leaves the office and must keep the treated areas uncovered for at least 4 hours. The redness and puffiness fades, and over the next 1-2 weeks the growth will slowly flake off. Sometimes the skin will be slightly pink, the pink color will fade as well. The risk of scarring is greatly reduced from previous removal options such as cryotherapy, shave excision or electrodessication . Some patients may need a repeat treatment in 3 weeks.
