Botox from a Dermatologist
Any dermatologist will tell you that Botox has been successfully used by them over several years to treat facial creases and wrinkles. Botox works by preventing signals from the nerves traveling to the muscles. Hence, the injected muscle cannot contract and thereby the wrinkles relax and their appearance softens.

Botox is the typical treatment option for forehead lines, crown lines and also crow’s feet, i.e. lines around the eye. Wrinkles that are caused by gravity and sun damage are unlikely to respond to Botox. However, Botox can also be used on lip lines, the chin and the corner of the neck and mouth.

The entire procedure takes just a few minutes and you will not need any anesthesia. The dermatologist will inject the Botox using a fine needle into specific muscles. You are likely to experience only very minor discomfort during the procedure. Typically, you will be able to see the full effects of this procedure within about three days to one week. Before the procedure, you should avoid the consumption of alcohol for at least a week. You must also stop taking any anti-inflammatory medications and aspirin for a period of two weeks before the treatment to reduce any instance of bruising.

The results of the Botox treatment will last anywhere from three to six months. Although you may require a touch-up treatment, the lines and wrinkles typically appear less severe with time as the muscles get trained to be in a relaxed state.

Dermal Injections for Wrinkles and Fine Lines
Hyaluronic acid and other collagen-stimulating fillers that can be injected by a dermatologist give the skin a smoother and plumper appearance. Hyaluronic acid itself is a vital part of the structure of your skin. It forms a fiber network within the skin that serves as a framework.

In the case of young skin, the framework of hyaluronic acid and collagen are intact and the skin remains elastic and moisturized. However, over time, this support structure begins to weaken and the elasticity of the skin is lost. Hence the tone of the skin starts to diminish and the support offered by the collagen wears down. You would be surprised to know that using the facial muscles, such as when squinting, smiling or frowning the skin collagen is stressed, although these are usual day-to-day activities. With time, this stress adds up and causes the appearance of fine facial wrinkles and lines.

Dermal injections of collagen stimulating substances address wrinkles by replenishing the natural collagen of the skin. By supplementing the collagen already existing in the skin, the injections help smooth out facial lines and also certain specific types of scars. In this manner, the natural beauty of the skin is enhanced, and the contour of this support structure is restored.

Prior to undergoing the procedure, your dermatologist will assess your suitability. It is important to have realistic expectations and to discuss these before the procedure. He or she will also advise you on the appropriateness of the injections for your scars and lines and will also assess whether you have any medical conditions that can make these injections inappropriate.
