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.

How Botox from your dermatologist in Tulsa can help you look youngerbotox

Is your face beginning to show your age? Are you beginning to see fine lines and wrinkles when you look at yourself in the mirror? If so, it’s time to make yourself look as young on the outside as you feel on the inside. The answer is Botox! Dr. Lynn Anderson at Midtown Dermatology in Tulsa, OK wants to share the facts about this unique anti-aging treatment.

Botox has been in use for many years and is a proven safe and effective treatment for skin rejuvenation and wrinkle reduction. Botox comes from a bacterium known as Clostridium botulinum and it works by temporarily “freezing” the nerves and muscles which cause wrinkles. It smoothes out the skin, making your face look rejuvenated and younger.

Signs of aging including wrinkles and fine lines begin to show up due to your skin’s loss of moisture. Skin elasticity decreases as you age so when you show facial expressions like laughing or frowning, your skin doesn’t snap back as easily. The result is fine lines and wrinkles beginning to form.

Botox is very effective at reducing the appearance of age-related fine lines and wrinkles, including:

  • Smile lines around your nose and mouth
  • Crow’s feet, which are the lines at the corners of your eyes
  • Furrows, which are the lines running across your forehead
  • Glabella, which are the lines between your eyebrows

Botox treatment is tolerated well, and you can request a numbing cream or spray beforehand. The number of injections you need will vary depending on the areas being treated. You can expect to see results within 2 to 4 days, and you may need maintenance treatments after 4 to 6 months to get the best result.

If you want to rejuvenate your skin and reduce the early signs of aging, Botox is the choice to make. To learn more about Botox and other anti-aging treatments call Dr. Anderson at Midtown Dermatology in Tulsa, OK. She can help you look years younger, so call today!

As we age, it is natural for our skin to change in ways we may not like. The way we move our facial muscles can cause fine lines and botoxwrinkles to develop. However thanks to the expertise of Dr. Lynn Anderson at Midtown Dermatology in Tulsa, Oklahoma, she can improve your skin with one simple treatment. Botox has proven to improve the appearance of the skin in just one treatment.

More about Botox

Botox itself blocks the release of Acetylcholine, which causes muscle contractions leading to wrinkles. The Botox paralyzes muscles and stops them from contracting, meaning that after a period of time, your fine lines and wrinkles are diminished. Results from Botox can be seen in just days and can last for months.

Dr. Anderson from Midtown Dermatology uses Botox to treat a variety of aging issues with her patients including (and not limited to):

  • Crow’s feet
  • Lines between the brows
  • Worry lines on the forehead
  • Smile lines / Laugh Lines

Most people with fine lines, wrinkles or other aging signs will be a great candidate for Botox. Retreatment is common and occurs when the lines and wrinkles reappear on the face after a period of time (usually six months or more).

The Botox procedure itself doesn’t require anesthesia and takes only a few minutes of your time. Patients over the age of 18 years of age can have this successful skin treatment performed on them. Botox has been proven to rejuvenate and revitalize the skin of both men and women. When you’re looking for anti-aging treatment options such as Botox in Tulsa Oklahoma, call Dr. Anderson at Midtown Dermatology. To schedule an informative consultation with her today, call 918-728-3100.

Learn how getting Botox from your Tulsa dermatologist give you back your confidence.

Would you like to get rid of wrinkles and furrows that make you look older? Botox offers a temporary, non-surgical way to improve your botoxappearance. Dr. Lynn Anderson, your Tulsa, OK dermatologist, explains how Botox treatment can help you.

What is Botox?

Botox is made from the botulinum toxin. Injecting a very small amount of Botox into the muscles under the skin is a very effective way to reduce wrinkles. Botox prevents nerve signals from reaching the muscles and causing contractions. When your muscles can't contract, the skin over the area relaxes and wrinkles and lines begin to smooth out. Botox offers a safe, effective way to temporarily treat wrinkles and a variety of other issues.

What issues does Botox treat?

Botox is used to treat a number of cosmetic and health issues, including:

  • Crow's feet: Botox helps smooth those little lines that form at the corners of your eyes.
  • Lines between the eyes: Sooner or later, nearly everyone develops vertical lines between the eyes. Unfortunately, those lines can make you look older. After Botox injections, the muscle relaxes and the lines become much less noticeable.
  • Forehead furrows: Botox can be a good choice if you're concerned about horizontal lines on your forehead.
  • Neck lines and bands: Your face might look younger, thanks to Botox injections, but the condition of your neck can give away your age. Adding neck injections makes lines and bands less noticeable.
  • Lines around the lips and mouth: Don't like the way lines around your mouth and lips make you look? Botox injections are the perfect solution to reduce the appearance of those lines.
  • Migraines: Botox can reduce the number of headaches you get if you have chronic migraines.
  • Excessive sweating: Injecting Botox into your sweat glands may be recommended if you have hyperhidrosis, a condition that causes excessive sweating. The injections are very effective at blocking sweat production.

How long do Botox effects last?

Botox results typically last three to six months. As the effect of the toxin wears off, lines and wrinkles will gradually return unless you schedule additional injections.

If you're ready to get rid of the lines and wrinkles that make you look older than you feel, call Dr. Lynn Anderson, your Tulsa, OK dermatologist, at (918) 728-3100 and schedule a Botox appointment today. Rejuvenate your face with Botox!

Give your skin the TLC it needs by considering Botox treatments in Tulsa.

You’ve probably seen ads and commercials talking about the wonderful benefits of getting Botox; however, how much do you really Botoxknow about this cosmetic treatment and how can it improve your skin? Your Tulsa dermatologist has the answers to your most popular questions:

What is Botox?

Botox is an injectable dermal filler that uses Botulinum toxin to temporarily paralyze muscle contractions to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

What skin problems can Botox improve?

Botox can improve mild to moderate lines and wrinkles of the face and neck, particularly forehead lines, crow’s feet and the wrinkles around the nose and mouth.

What should I expect when I get Botox?

The process itself only takes a couple of minutes. Your Tulsa dermatologist will mark the treatment areas and then administer a series of thin injections into the skin. This treatment can be performed in under 10 minutes.

Will Botox make me feel numb?

Botox only stops the muscles from contracting, but it does not affect the nerves, which means that you won’t experience a loss of sensation or feel as if you are numb. However, it’s important to get Botox from an experienced Tulsa dermatologist because we are able to properly judge how much Botox you will need to get the look you want to achieve (without injecting too much).

How long do Botox results last?

This will vary between patients depending on the severity of the wrinkles being treated; however, the optimal results tend to last about four months. However, if you are looking to maintain your more radiant new look, then talk to your Tulsa dermatologist about follow-up injections.

Is Botox painful?

Some patients describe the injections as a slight pinch; however, areas like between the eyebrows that have less skin may be a bit more uncomfortable. However, your Tulsa dermatologist is happy to apply a topical anesthesia to the areas beforehand so you don’t notice the injections when they are administered.

Are there any side effects of treatment?

Any drug you take will have side effects; however, most side effects of Botox tend to be minor and go away after a couple of days. You may experience redness, tenderness, bruising, swelling and pain around the injection sites. In some rare case, eyelid or eyebrow drooping can occur; however, this will go away in a couple of weeks.
