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.

No matter your age, feeling as though you look good can help boost your confidence, enhance your self-esteem, and help you feel great about the skin you’re in. If your skin has begun to sag, wrinkle, or look dull, your dermatologist can help you rejuvenate your complexion to look better than ever. Botox is a common and effective dermatological treatment which occurs right in your doctor’s office in just minutes. Find out more about Botox and how it can help your facial skin with Dr. Ellen Jacobson at Skin MD in Nashville, TN.

What is Botox?
Botox is a treatment which restricts the movement of the muscles underneath the facial skin. This helps prevent new wrinkles from forming and allows the skin to relax, smoothing its current appearance and contributing to a beautiful, more youthful appearance. The procedure for Botox is fast and takes your dermatologist only minutes to perform.

Can Botox help me? 
If you have unwanted fine lines or wrinkles in your facial skin, you may benefit from Botox. Botox also helps in situations like excessive sweating, migraine headaches, and even temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. If you think you can benefit from Botox, consulting with your dermatologist is your best option to determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure.

What can I expect from a Botox treatment? 
A Botox appointment begins with the patient lying on a treatment table and making themselves comfortable. Your doctor cleanses the face and marks the areas of the skin they think would benefit most. They will then use a super-thin needle to administer the Botox to the muscles underneath the skin. Most patients report that there is little pain and hardly any recovery. You may see some slight redness or swelling around the injection sites for a day or two.

Chances are you are already familiar with Botox and how it is used to temporarily manage the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for botoxsmoother, younger-looking skin. As one of the most common non-surgical cosmetic procedures, chances are you already know someone in your personal or professional life, or are a fan of a celebrity who uses Botox. But despite the fact that it is most famous for helping to slow down the signs of the aging process, Botox is also used to help manage a number of cosmetic and medical problems, from excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) to incontinence and migraines. SkinMD in Nashville, TN, offers a number of surgical, medical, and cosmetic dermatology services for a range of skin and scalp conditions.

In addition to minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, mouth, and forehead, Botox can also help with a number of problems that can affect your quality of life, including:

Excessive sweating - According to research, over seven million Americans suffer from hyperhidrosis, which causes abnormally high levels of sweating, even under normal conditions where the sufferer is not exercising or in a hot or warm climate. The most common areas affected are the palms of the hands, feet, and underarms, but hyperhidrosis can affect the entire body. Botox injections can be used to block the chemical signals that trigger the sweat glands to produce excessive perspiration.

Migraines - Over 35 million Americans suffer from migraine headaches, which can be debilitating depend on their severity and how frequently they occur (between two and three million migraine sufferers experience chronic episodes). Botox is applied to areas in the head and neck to help prevent or minimize the muscle contractions involved in the onset of a migraine.

Overactive Bladder - Botox can be injected into the detrusor muscle of the bladder to help control the flow of urine and leaks.
