Finally, it appears the weather has turned and spring is deservingly upon us. With the excitement of the upcoming summer season, we all eagerly prioritize and maximize our outdoor time. As always, this inevitably makes us more skin conscious than ever. With every year, the exciting field of dermatology continues to evolve in guiding skin care and treatments. Recent changes in FDA sunscreen policies are just part of this evolution in how we change the way we take care of our skin. In addition, advances in technology help us make sure we look our best during the more exposed times of the year. Here are some of my practice’s seasonal favorites, technologic advancements, and updates in modern dermatology. Enjoy the beautiful weather and I look forward to catching up with you all.

News from Dr. Frank: Spring 2013
With the ever confusing data about skincare and sunscreen, arm yourself and your family with the essentials of sunscreen and the important changes in FDA’s regulation of them. Have fun and stay safe this summer!
The New VASERsmooth Treatment
The VASERsmooth Treatment Breaks New Ground in the Battle Against Cellulite
As a world renowned expert in Tumescent, VASER and Laser Liposuction, Dr. Paul Jarrod Frank is enthusiastic and proud to offer the new VASERsmooth Procedure. VASERsmooth permits us to effectively and quickly treat cellulite with quick recoveries and obvious results. The minimally invasive procedure is performed totally under local anesthesia in our surgically accredited office. Through a few tiny incisions that close without stitches or scars, local anesthesia is infused under the skin to totally numb the region. Using the thin, ultrasonic ‘VASERsmooth’ wand designed specifically to be used just under the skin, the device melts superficial fat, breaks the dimpling fibrous septae and tightens loose skin, resulting in an overall and permanently smoother appearance.
Advanced Liposonix® Treatment
Liposonix Melts Fat Away without downtime

Performed in less than an hour’s time, a belly and love handles can be treated with immediate return to daily activities. One Treatment, One Hour, One Size Smaller!
