Ways to Experience the Benefits of Botulinum Treatment

Browse by

For several years now, men and women from across the globe have restored their youthful faces with Botox®. Birmingham and Chelsea, AL area residents can enjoy the great benefits of the Botox® cosmetic solution offered at the Skin Wellness Dermatology of Alabama. This derivative of botulinum toxin is proven to be a safe and highly effective way to handle some of the most common signs of aging that occurs on the upper third of the face.

Botox® is designed to relax the muscles that tense up beneath the skin. Muscle contractions occur as the brain commands, typically in order to make facial expressions. Due to the frequency with which these muscles are used, however, they often develop a state of constant contraction. On the skin, this looks like fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead, between the brows, and at the outer edges of the eyes.

The benefits of botulinum treatment are clear, though it is important to know that the most beautiful results come from a combination of factors rather than only the solution. Tips to ensure you experience the best results include:

  • Be clear on your desired result. Part of cosmetic treatments is communicating directly with your practitioner what you wish to achieve. Through your communication, your doctor determines what muscles to treat and how much solution to use. Your board certified dermatologist is well versed in facial anatomy and has the precise skill to produce natural, beautiful results.
  • Once you are certain of your goals, you are ready to choose a trusted doctor. Today, it is possible, but not recommended, to receive Botox® injections from clinicians in med-spas and even at “Botox® parties.” Dr. Corey Hartman and Dr. Rayna Dyck are board certified dermatologists with extensive experience in cosmetic dermatology.
  • Proactive treatments produce beautiful results, warding off the signs of age rather than correcting damage that has already been done. Starting early means fewer injections, and treatments that are more conservative.
  • Time it right. Botox® is a quick and virtually painless procedure that can be completed in less than thirty minutes. It is possible to resume your normal workday immediately after treatment. Exercise, however, should be put off for at least six hours. The full results of Botox® can take up to two weeks to fully develop, so if you have a special event for which you are preparing, be sure to schedule accordingly. The smoothing results of Botox® treatment last from three to four months.

At the Skin Wellness Dermatology of Alabama, we have helped many women and men reverse the signs of age with the treatment of Botox®. Birmingham, AL residents and those near the surrounding areas of Chelsea, Homewood, and Hoover, can contact one of our offices today to schedule a visit.
