Dr. Taub’s Winter/Spring Letter 2023

Dear patients, colleagues and friends,

Wow, this year went fast! We had such a beautiful autumn, then suddenly Thanksgiving was over, and now on to a new year again! It is our 20th Anniversary at Advanced Dermatology and skinfo®! I can’t believe how much we’ve grown and how I am still so excited for what is to come. The best part is that I still love coming to work and seeing all my colleagues, coworkers, and all of you! We are still so grateful that you have made our practice and team a part of your lives and given us your trust to take care of you and your family. We hope you will enjoy some of our 20-year celebration specials!

Still, there is so much that is new! As much as I travel the world, even I cannot keep up with all that is happening in cosmetic, medical, and surgical dermatology. There are several new treatments for atopic dermatitis (eczema), vitiligo, alopecia areata, hidradenitis suppurative, prurigo nodularis,
and many more! These are just the new medical treatments available (which have exploded into the market this year), and more are coming! So, if you are afflicted with one of these conditions and haven’t checked out what is available, you should!

I also want to tell you about some of our new major equipment
purchases, Emsculpt NEO® and Emsella®. Emsculpt NEO® offers
simultaneous non-invasive fat reduction and muscle stimulation, or just muscle stimulation alone. Emsella® is a non-invasive stimulation of pelvic floor muscles. Why would you need either of these treatments? Here is a list of the things these can do for you: make you stronger in your core, resulting in better balance, better functionality of day-to-day living, getting in shape easier, reduce your abdominal circumference, reduce belly fat (even the kind that is behind the muscle!), make your abdominal muscles come closer together if you have a separation, improve your muscle tone in the area of your pelvis, making your body spring back from pregnancy faster, give you decreased urinary incontinence or urgency, and maybe even help your sex life (and that goes for women AND men!) On top of that, we also have muscle stimulation for love handles, arms and legs with fat reduction, and muscle stimulation for the butt (want to firm it up and make it sag less, anyone?)

Also Daxxify™, the longer lasting neurotoxin (AKA BOTOX®), is being released; Daxxify™ having 4-6 month longevity versus BOTOX® 3-4! If you have only wanted to come to the office twice a year instead of 3-4, or your toxin isn’t lasting as long as you’d like, Daxxify™ is your solution. It will be launched the second week of January at Advanced Dermatology, one of only a small number of practices involved in their clinical research. You can be one of the first to get it (don’t worry, clinical trials involving >4000 people led to its approval by the FDA, so you will hardly be the first).

We were involved in the trial and know what it can do, so let us know if you want to be on the list to be one of the first to get it (I know I want mine!) or come in for a consult! Ok, I know what you are thinking, “how much will this cost?” Estimate 50% more than your current amount, but we will give you the exact quote when you come in.

Two other exciting things to note that we will be getting in the future: Volux™, a new Juvederm® product designed for the jawline, improves jowls in women and gives men a bolder and more masculine look. Redensity®, a new and very soft filler for “skin quality boosting,” which we like for necklace lines (AKA tech neck), under the eye, and in fine lines everywhere!

Warm regards,
