Study Finds Botox May Help Patients Suffering from Psoriasis and Eczema

Posted on December 6, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

The winter months bring in the joyous holiday season, but the cold weather can also wreak havoc on our skin. Indoor heating adds warmth to homes, but unfortunately it makes our skin feel dry and tight. The dry air can be particularly detrimental for those suffering from psoriasis and eczema because the lack of moisture can trigger flare-ups

Psoriasis and eczema are two chronic skin conditions that result in rough, red, and scaly patches developing on various parts of the body. The lesions are notoriously hard to treat, but researchers are currently investigating if Botox can offer relief to the millions who suffer from these conditions. Recent studies have explored if Botox can inhibit the chemical messengers that trigger inflammation in psoriasis and eczema patients. The test subjects involved in these studies experienced an improvement in the appearance of psoriatic plaques, and Botox also seemed to reduce the feeling of itchiness in eczema sufferers. Although these studies have produced promising results, there is more research needed before Botox becomes widely accepted treatment modality for these diseases.

Botox already has FDA approval to treat fine lines and wrinkles, and it is one of the most effective ways to visibly improve the appearance of aged skin. The prescription medicine smooths the skin by inhibiting the communication from nerves to muscles which is an underlying cause of wrinkle formation. The treatment is injected into the expressive zones of the face, and patients can expect to see a more relaxed and refreshed appearance after their first treatment. The treated muscles will maintain their beautiful and youthful qualities for a period of three to four two months, and then the skin may need to be freshened up with additional treatments.

Furthermore, since Botox is such a highly effective tool at inhibiting cellular communication it has inspired scientists to study if the drug can be used to treat other ailments of the body. Their experiments have led to new and FDA approved medical breakthroughs in the treatment and prevention of chronic migraines and severe underarm sweating. We are excited about the research being done to prove that Botox can improve the lives of patients suffering eczema and psoriasis, and we hope that we can tap into more potential benefits from this powerful treatment.

Understanding Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Posted on December 1, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

Starting in our 20s, collagen production gradually declines. With fewer reserves of healthy collagen and elastin, our skin becomes increasingly fragile and more susceptible to damage from both internal and external factors.

For instance, our faces begin to show the wear and tear from the muscle activity related to smiling and squinting. Fine lines and wrinkles first make their appearance in areas of the face that experience the most muscle movement, and the creases become more prominent as we mature. We will break down four of the primary types of wrinkles to help you understand better how they are formed.

 

  1. Atrophic Crinkling Rhytids

These wrinkles appear as fine lines on the skin, and the lines often run parallel to each other.  Skin tightening can greatly improve the appearance of this type of wrinkles because the treatment works by stimulating collagen production.

 

  1. Permanent Elastic Creases

The creases are permanently etched into the skin as a result of years of repeated facial movements. We have found that the best way to treat this type of wrinkles is with dermal fillers injections, which will help plump up the skin and create a more youthful facial contour.

 

  1. Dynamic Expression Lines

Botox is one of the most effective treatments available today to both treat and prevent this type of wrinkles. Botox will create a softer and more relaxed facial appearance, but it’s important to seek out a qualified professional to administer this treatment. Botox is a very powerful injectable medication, and you need an experienced clinician who understands the product as well as your facial anatomy if you want the most natural-looking results.

 

  1. Gravitational Folds

These folds are caused by gravity, and the furrows deepen and become more pronounced as you age. We recommend applying facial and décolleté creams in an upward motion to avoid worsening the problem of downward pressure our skin regularly faces.

Simplify Your Hair Care Routine with Botox

Posted on November 9, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

Our hair tends to never look better than when we walk out of a salon with a fresh blowout. Protecting it changes the way we go about life since we now have to be mindful of how the elements may affect our beautiful hair. We start to avoid moisture because we know it will ruin it. Sweating, for example, can instantly transform voluminous hair into lifeless, flattened strands.

Fortunately, sweat is something we can now control with the help of Botox. More and more patients are turning to Botox to reduce sweating. Botox can be safely used in the underarm and scalp areas, and the in-office treatment will work to block the neurotransmitters that promote perspiration.

When Botox is injected into the scalp, patients can expect to see their hairstyles looking fresher for longer. Routine activities like exercising can now be performed without the fear of ruining your hair.

Baby Botox: Taking Baby Steps with Botox Treatments

Posted on October 20, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

Fine lines and wrinkles give a tired appearance to the skin. The decision to start Botox treatments can be a difficult one for many people. Many are worried if Botox is too strong, and if the treatment will make their face look like it’s frozen. Botox is a very powerful medication, but with the experienced doctor injecting it you should not have problems expressing your emotions after the treatment.

Baby Botox is the moniker used to describe treatments that use fewer units of Botox than what is considered a norm. The practice of injecting only small doses of Botox is a conservative approach that can yield amazing results. During a treatment, the practitioner injects small amounts of Botox into forehead hyper-dynamic lines, which results in a softened appearance without jeopardizing patient’s ability to show their emotions. Baby Botox will require more frequent treatments, but you should expect each session to be priced substantially lower because Botox is priced per unit.

The Most Common Reasons Men Choose Botox

Posted on September 5, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

Botox has become increasingly popular with men in recent years. The majority of men who opt for Botox injections are professionals between the ages of 35 and 65. Just as women, men choose Botox because they want to appear younger, but their biggest reason for choosing it is the desire to stay competitive in the workplace.

  • Areas round the eyes and forehead are the most common Botox injection sites for men.
  • Frown lines, also known as 11s, is another popular treatment area for men. These vertical lines between the eyebrows can create an angry or tired appearance.
  • Men who suffer from hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, have also seen the benefits of Botox. It can be used to treat underarms, face, feet, and palms.
  • Botox is a proven treatment option for migraines.

Would You Like to Have More Symmetrical Eyebrows? Botox Can Help!

Posted on August 16, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

As a prominent facial feature, eyebrows can play an important role in overall facial symmetry and attractiveness. Drooping eyebrows can make you appear tired or sad, while a more elevated brow portrays a youthful appearance.

How Botox Can Improve Eyebrow Symmetry?

Surgery used to be the only solution for asymmetrical eyebrows. These days, Botox can be used to raise the eyebrow higher up or even lower the brow, if so desired. Botox is injected directly into the appropriate muscle depending on whether the eyebrow needs to be lowered or lifted. Injecting Botox into the forehead will drop the eyebrow down, and injecting it into the “squinting muscles” will pull the eyebrow up.

Does it Really Work?

A medical practitioner with in depth knowledge of the muscles surrounding the eye will be able to create a noticeable difference using Botox, especially for those with moderate asymmetry. You will be able to see the results around 3 days after the treatment and they will last about 3-4 months.
