SkinSmart Dermatology in Sarasota is Now Offering RADIESSE to Rejuvenate Hands

Dr. Elizabeth F. Callahan is one of the first to offer RADIESSE filler for hands to correct volume loss in aging hands

“We are excited to be one of the first dermatology practices in Sarasota to be able to offer RADIESSE for the hands to our patients. I have been trained on the proper technique for administering the treatment to assure the safe and effective outcome for my patients by the manufacturer, and I am pleased that SkinSmart has been designated a RADIESSE Center of Excellence,” said Callahan. “It’s a huge honor to be named a Center of Excellence, and gives patients the highest level of confidence in choosing SkinSmart for their treatment.”

“In recent years, I’ve seen an increase in the number of patients who are seeking aesthetic treatments for their hands. The hands don’t lie— so even after providing a more youthful appearance of the face, a patient’s age can easily be given away by the appearance of his or her hands. RADIESSE allows me to restore the volume in the back of the hands, enhancing the appearance and also provides the opportunity to treat both their hands and their face. With RADIESSE for hands, I am thrilled to be able to provide an FDA-approved treatment for patients in my practice who are ready for this next step in their aesthetic regimen,” added Callahan.

In a randomized, controlled US trial, blinded evaluators reported that RADIESSE improved the appearance of both hands in 75 percent of treated patients at three months. Importantly, 98 percent of treated patients also reported improvement in the appearance of their hands at three months. Improved aesthetic outcomes as measured on the Global Aesthetic Improvement Scale (GAIS) after initial and repeat treatments correlating with clinical improvement were demonstrated in this study, with all primary and secondary endpoints being met.

Most adverse events were injection site reactions such as swelling, redness, pain and bruising, which were usually mild to moderate, short in duration (lasting about one week), and required no treatment. No severe device-related adverse events were reported that required treatment. To learn more, please visit sarasotadermatologist.com or radiesse.com

SkinSmart Dermatology is First in Sarasota to Offer Kybella Treatments to Reduce Double Chin Fat

Elizabeth Callahan, M.D. is the only dermatologist in Sarasota to treat double-chins with Kybella, the first FDA-approved non-surgical way to eliminate double chins and under chin fat deposits with simple injectable treatments

SARASOTA, FLA. – July 28, 2015—Elizabeth Callahan, M.D., founder and medical director of SkinSmart Dermatology, is the first dermatologist in Sarasota to be chosen by the manufacturer to offer and perform Kybella™ under-chin fat dissolving injectable treatments.

“Kybella offers the first injectable, non-invasive way to treat and eliminate double chin fat,” Dr. Callahan explained. “Previously this area could only be treated through surgery or liposuction, both invasive techniques that required downtime and recovery. With Kybella, several treatments over a few months can eliminate double chins with minimal swelling and very little, if any, downtime.”
“We are excited to be the first dermatology office in Sarasota to be able to offer Kybella to patients. I am the only one who will perform Kybella treatments at SkinSmart Dermatology and I am one of the few practitioners currently trained on the proper technique for administering the treatment according to the manufacturer’s safety guidelines,” added Callahan.

Each in-office treatment session with Kybella is typically 15-20 minutes. When injected into subcutaneous fat, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After the aesthetic response is achieved with Kybella, re-treatment is not expected.

With this nonsurgical treatment, many patients experience visible results in two to four treatment sessions spaced at least one month apart. Up to six treatments may be administered. Treatment with Kybella is customized by Dr. Callahan to achieve the patient’s aesthetic goals for an improved chin profile.

The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness and formation of areas of hardness in the treatment area. In clinical trials, the incidence and severity of most side effects decreased with subsequent Kybella treatments. Kybella can cause serious side effects, including trouble swallowing and nerve injury in the jaw that can cause an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness.

Kybella has been the focus of a global clinical development program involving over 20 clinical studies with more than 2,600 patients worldwide, of which 1,600 have been treated with Kybella.

About KYBELLA™
KYBELLA is the first and only approved injectable drug for contouring moderate to severe submental fullness, a condition that is commonly referred to as a double chin. KYBELLA is a non-human and non-animal formulation of deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into subcutaneous fat, KYBELLA causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. KYBELLA (deoxycholic acid) injection is indicated for improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe convexity or fullness associated with submental fat in adults.

The safe and effective use of KYBELLA for the treatment of subcutaneous fat outside the submental region has not been established and is not recommended.

Sarasota’s SkinSmart Dermatology® Donation Benefits Nate’s Honor Animal Rescue

Dr. Elizabeth Callahan’s Stuffed Puppies are a Hit with Patients and Staff

“We thought that if we purchased the plush stuffed puppies for our patients, and offered them the opportunity to donate $5 per puppy, it would not only bring a smile to our patients’ faces when they walked away with a cute stuffed puppy,” she noted, “but it would benefit the homeless dogs and cats Nate’s cares for while finding them new forever homes.”

Nate’s Honor Animal Rescue is a no kill shelter, located in Lakewood Ranch, and so far this year has found homes for more than 749 homeless pets.

“We are grateful for the support we receive from our local community,” said Rob Oglesby, Nate’s Honor Animal Rescue president. “And the SkinSmart Dermatology donation is a great help. The idea of tying in stuffed puppies with a donation program is an excellent concept and we appreciate the enthusiasm of SkinSmart’s patients and staff.”

“I was overwhelmed by the response we had in just a 60-day period,” noted Dr. Callahan. “And I am so grateful that we have some of the most generous animal-loving patients in Southwest Florida.”

“The plush puppies are miniature versions of my Maltese called Perlane,” Dr. Callahan explained. “We added our signature green and purple bows around the stuffed puppies’ necks along with a collar tag and our logo, to give the puppies a personal touch,” added Dr. Callahan.

This campaign will end when the supply of stuffed puppies runs out, but anyone can come to the office at 5911 N. Honore Ave., suite 210, near the intersection of N. Honore and University in the ClickBooth office park, one traffic light west of the University Town Center Mall to purchase a stuffed puppy.

SkinSmart Dermatology patients also donate to the Humane Society through a “doggy bank” the practice has placed next to its coffee bar. Coffee and tea are free to patients, but if anyone wishes, they can donate 25 cents per cup via the Humane Society Dog Bank. So far this year, SkinSmart patients have donated more than $312 to the Humane Society using the dog bank.

SkinSmart Dermatology is the only dermatological practice with two fellowship-trained Mohs skin cancer surgeons on staff from Tampa to Port Charlotte. The practice encompasses more than 10,000 square feet, including the Mohs Skin Cancer wing.
