The Advantages of Getting Botox

Botox is a safe, effective anti-aging treatment that can be performed by a cosmetic dermatologist. Unlike cosmetic surgery, Botox injections have a short recovery period, few side effects, and quick results. Here are just a few of the many advantages of Botox that may help you decide whether to seek the treatment.

Cure Migraine Headaches

One of the surprising side effects of Botox injections is that they can relieve you of painful migraine headaches. Regular Botox injections in the head, face, and neck have proven to prevent migraine occurrences in chronic sufferers. The effects of Botox last for about 3 months, so this quick, convenient treatment is also long-lasting. It also has far fewer side effects than many migraine medications.

Scar Management

Botox injections can help diminish or erase scars. Botox injections, combined with dermal fillers, can erase acne scars and pock marks. Botox also prevents larger scars from becoming bigger. Doctors have even begun using Botox for scar management and preventing scarring after surgery, as the drug will prevent the skin from pulling apart at incision sites. Wide scars result from muscle movements pulling the skin apart during the healing phase. For facial wounds, a Botox injection can temporarily paralyze the muscles that may cause the movement that would result in a larger scar.

Reduce Fine Lines and Wrinkles

The most common use for Botox injections is to reduce or eliminate fine lines and wrinkles on the face and neck. Botox temporarily paralyzes the facial muscles whose movement causes wrinkles and lines. The injection takes only seconds, and results can be seen after just three days. You won't need another treatment for three months.

Ask for Sunscreen Help

Applying sunscreen regularly and effectively is one of the best ways to reduce your risk of developing skin cancer. Sunscreen only works when it is applied consistently and according to the directions, however. If there are exposed areas of skin that you can't reach, you won't be able to apply sunscreen on them, and you risk getting sunburned.

Watch this video to learn how easy it is to misapply sunscreen or apply it unevenly. Ask for help when applying sunscreen to ensure that every exposed area of skin is sufficiently protected.

Minimizing Your Risk of Skin Cancer

Advanced Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery | Skin Cancer Prevention

While many clinical dermatologists can provide skin cancer treatment, the best thing you can do for your health is to minimize your risk of getting skin cancer. Skin cancer is caused by prolonged or frequent exposure to UV radiation, either from the sun or from tanning beds, booths, or lamps. If you've had frequent or severe sunburns, or tan regularly, you're at increased risk for skin cancer.

To reduce your risk, decrease the amount of time you spend in the sun. Stay in the shade as much as possible, and if you're going to be outside for longer than 15 minutes, apply sunscreen. Your sunscreen should be broad spectrum with an SPF of at least 30. Apply it frequently and according to the directions. You should also wear long sleeves, pants, a wide-brimmed hat, and sunglasses while out in the sun.

At Advanced Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery, we offer skin cancer treatment services at each of our 115 locations around the country. Treatments include both surgical and non-surgical procedures, and will be customized to your medical needs and personal desires.

Why Do Men Appear to Age Differently Than Women?

Men and women are different in many ways—including how they age! Typically, men appear to maintain healthier and younger-looking skin as they get older while women often suffer from signs of aging. But why is this?

Watch this video to learn about the differences in men's and women's skin. Men typically start shaving their faces at a young age. Shaving is a form of exfoliation, which helps keep the skin looking soft and smooth. Men also tend to make more oil due to testosterone, another factor that helps keep skin looking younger. Women's hormonal changes during menopause also result in older and duller looking skin.

You can learn more about how skin changes with age by contacting Advanced Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery. See if our cosmetic dermatology services can help you by giving us a call at (407) 966-4790.

How Restylane Can Help You

Restylane is an injectable dermal filler that can be used for a number of cosmetic dermatology procedures. The drug has few side effects, the procedure only takes a matter of seconds, and the results of each treatment last longer than those of the previous treatment. Continue reading for more information on how Restylane injections can help you.

Reduces Facial Wrinkles

Restylane can diminish or erase moderate to severe wrinkles and folds in the face and neck. It is particularly effective on lines or creases around the nose and mouth, as well as crow's feet and forehead wrinkles. The effects are immediate and noticeable, and the side effects are so minimal that most patients can go straight back to their normal day-to-day activities. The results of your first treatment should last about 4 and a half to 9 months. The results of subsequent treatments should last about 18 months.

Makes Face Look Fuller and More Youthful

Restylane plumps the skin, helping it regain lost volume in a natural way. Injections also deeply hydrate the skin, which improves its structure and elasticity. This results in a smoother, more youthful appearance. If you have age-related hollows in your face, such as in your cheeks or around and under your eyes, Restylane can fill in these hollows.

Enhances Size and Appearance of Lips

Restylane is commonly used in lip enhancement, as it can plump the lips, increasing their volume and improving their shape. Your cosmetic dermatologist will help you find your ideal lip size and shape, and will adjust your treatment to achieve that look. Treatment takes less than an hour, and there are few side effects. The results are subtle and natural, but immediately noticeable, and last for about 6 months.
