Every day we wish that we can turn back the clock on our skin as we got older. And with botox, it’s possible as you can decide which part of your face to be rejuvenated. Read on to know more about the finer details of botox treatment if you decide to book a session with your dermatologist.
As we all know, botox is a neurotoxin that works to relax (or ‘freeze’ if you like) the muscles underneath the skin where wrinkles are formed. Used correctly, botox can be used to treat virtually all wrinkles that you can think of – crow’s feet, forehead lines, bunny lines, and the ‘11s’ the lines between the brows. While intended to be injected in the upper area of the face, it’s also common for doctors to use the drug to reduce the appearance of lip lines as well as around the neck.
Although it’s easy to point out here and there where your skin to be rejuvenated, it’s essential to know that two or more facial muscles interact with each other for various expressions. If one botox injected to only one muscle it will simply reinforce other surrounding muscles and cause unpleasant deformity (look up various celebs going wrong with botox and you’ll be surprised). Thus, having a thorough understanding of how facial muscles works are essential to decide which muscles to be injected for best result.
A good doctor will help you to decide which injections to create the best possible results with a thorough understanding of the facial anatomy. The most common mistake that patients tend to do is pointing firmly the specific area to be treated when the key is to understand the problem on the whole.
Forehead or specifically frown lines are the most susceptible area for both men and women due to the both continuous and excessive facial movements over a long period of time. Usually the procedure is quick (which can take as minimum as fifteen minutes) and does not require anesthesia with the result can last from three to six months.
Crow’s feet are another culprit that needs to be removed for good (particularly for women, they won’t look good as men with these lines) but keep in mind that it can spell disaster if the treatment is done incorrectly. Just like the procedure with frown lines, minimum or no anesthesia is needed and the injection can take as minimum as fifteen minutes. A youthful looking eyes can last up to six months and rarely is swelling or redness occurs surrounding the injection site.
For women, having a brow lift is desirable as you can take years off of your face with a single shot. Just a quick injection with minimal downtime and recovery is all you need and you can look ‘lift up’ and awake.
After reading this most likely you can look thoroughly at the mirror and see which area is a perfect candidate for Botox, we do suggest speaking to a specialist before deciding where to have the treatment done.
Just when you thought you took a good care of your skin, here comes spots and patches out of nowhere right on it, called hyperpigmentation. And what’s more, people can see it, no matter how much foundation you’ve layered to even out the skin tone. Read on how these patches appear to you and why.
Oh, it’s hyper all right, darkened patches coming out and it doesn’t complement well for your whole complexion. To define the condition, hyperpigmentation is characterized by excess of melanin production on certain (unlucky) area of the body, making the coloring uneven, and there are few causes that can be pointed out.
For example, apart from the sun (creating spots and freckles apart from pigmentations), injured skin also can create some uneven patches on the skin, known as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Common skin issues such as acne, eczema, or even minor injuries from scratching also causes hyperpigmentation. You can read up on more about skin conditions here.
While a common and slightly moderate of hyperpigmentation – called melasma – creates an uneven, butterfly pattern of pigmentation which can bee seen on the\ cheeks and nose, with hormone-related issues such as imbalance/fluctuations, pregnancy, or even getting a hormone-related therapy.
And beware, if you have hypothyroidism, Addison’s disease, or Cushing’s syndrome, these conditions may also cause you hyperpigmentation.
Hyperpigmentation is definitely not a joke (again, it’s hyper, and you don’t want people to stare at these patches) thus a visit to a dermatologist is essential to find out the exact cause of your hyperpigmentation, as treating these patches is about healing the reason that caused it.
If the skin concern is quite mild, usually your doctor will prescribe a high grade version of over-the-counter creams (assuming you have tried it and it was unsuccessful). The topical treatment may contain ingredients such as retinol, kojic acid, or hydroquinone, and monitor your progress (as these creams are quite strong) and potential unwanted side effects.
Chemical peels are also possible as it helps to exfoliate the topmost surface and reducing pigmentation for a brighter, even toned skin. If your dermatologist prescribed a couple of peels for you, these are quite strong (like phenols) for a quick and effective treatment for hyperpigmentation.
Laser treatments such as IPL and fractional lasers may also be done to lighten up the patches and sometimes may be used alone, or coupled up with topical creams and chemical peels mentioned above.
Maintaining and preventing hyperpigmentation is possible as the condition is an indirect effect from the true cause. If you have acne, eczema, or hypothyroidism, treat these issues from creating unwanted patches on your face. And of course, you can prevent your skin from getting one by limiting yourself from sun exposure and always wear a good layer of sunscreen at all times.
