The Benefits of Botox

Want to erase the signs of aging this year? Millions of men and women are discovering the benefits of BOTOX treatments. BOTOX is a medicine that is injected into muscles to erase the signs of aging and treat certain conditions. Dermatologists are physicians who are trained in diagnosing and treating conditions and diseases of the skin. BOTOX is available from dermatologists. Read on to learn about the benefits of BOTOX.

1. It rejuvenates the skin.

BOTOX treatment is an excellent adjunct for rejuvenation of the face. BOTOX should be considered in addition to laser therapy, skin care, chemical peels, and resurfacing to improve the appearance of the face. It tightens and rejuvenizes your skin to help you look and feel younger. 

2. It can remove your wrinkles.

BOTOX works by blocking nerve impulses that cause muscles to contract and cause wrinkles. It's commonly injected into the face to eliminate wrinkles. Many patients who get BOTOX treatments can experience an improved complexion without the need for surgery. 

3. It can erase smile lines.

For most people, nasolabial folds— also known as smile lines— are nothing to smile about. Smile lines are fine lines that primarily develop around the sides of your mouth. They are more noticeable when you laugh or smile. BOTOX can reduce the appearance of smile lines. BOTOX can improve your look with minimal to no downtime. You will be able to go about your normal routine immediately after your treatment.

4. It can make crow's feet disappear.

Before you know it, crow's feet can leave you looking older than you feel. Crow’s feet are the lines that appear around the eyes. BOTOX is injected into crow’s feet with a tiny needle to improve the skin’s appearance. You may begin to notice the results of your BOTOX treatment within a few days, with results lasting up to 4 months.

Ready for an anti-aging makeover? Say yes to BOTOX! Find a dermatologist near you and schedule a consultation. BOTOX has helped many people enhance their appearance, giving them more self-confidence and improving their lives. And it will do the same for you.

Aging is simply a fact of life and its effects happen to everyone. However, there is a way to help you look younger, improve your confidencebotox levels, and treat your unwanted wrinkles and fine lines with Botox, Xeomin and Dysport. But what are these treatments and how can they benefit you? Find out the answer to this question and more with your dermatologists Dr. Kevin Dawson, Dr. Douglas Chun and Dr. Sarah Grekin at Dawson Dermatology in Honolulu, HI.

What are Botox and Dysport? 
Botox, Xeomin and Dysport are dermatological treatments which relax the facial muscles under the skin, smoothing its appearance and preventing its movement. By stopping the muscles from moving, this actually prevents new wrinkles from forming as the skin cannot fold or crease to cause them. Botox, Xeomin and Dysport are placed into the facial muscles around the forehead or eyes.

Which should I choose: Botox, Xeomin or Dysport? 
Botox, Xeomin and Dysport are similar treatments achieve the same goal. They use the same type of chemical to treat the muscles and prevent their movement. All treatments have a high safety rating and are similar in price. All treatments also require touch-up injections every three to four months. Most studies have shown that their effects are almost identical. Consulting with your dermatologist is the best way to come to determine which treatment is best for your skin.

Am I a candidate for Botox or Dysport treatments? 
Candidates for either treatment should be in good general health with concerns over their facial skin’s appearance. These concerns often include unwanted fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet) or forehead. Candidates for these treatments should have realistic expectations for their results and understand that patients require additional touch-up treatments every three to four months.

Forehead wrinkles. Crows feet. Frown lines. Dynamic wrinkles often develop from repetitive facial expression, causing these fine lines to appear visible even when theWrinkles  face is totally relaxed.

Wrinkles are a normal part of the aging process. The most common contributors to premature aging of the skin include genetics, spending too much time in the sun, smoking and poor diet.  Avoiding or limiting these activities can help prevent and lessen the effects of wrinkles.

Not all wrinkles can be avoided, and when quick, dramatic results are desired, Botox® may be a viable solution for removing wrinkles on the face caused by daily muscle contraction of your natural facial expressions. Botox® works by temporarily blocking nerve impulses, which reduces the movement of those particular muscles. With less movement, the skin surface is gradually smoothed, the lines begin to fade, and your natural vibrant skin strengthens and returns.  

During treatment, very low doses of Botox® are administered by way of small injections. FDA-approved, Botox® is a safe and minimally invasive treatment. It takes just a few minutes and can last about 3-4 months. The effects are not permanent and may need to be repeated as directed by your dermatologist.
