The surprising health benefits of botox
Some people call Botox the modern-day aspirin, because it is so well known and popular with a large percentage of the population. Dr. Downie, a Botox patient as well as an experienced injector, considers it as necessary as breathing for anyone who wants to look youthful. She is known as one of the most skilled Botox doctors in Montclair, NJ, and many new patients come to image Dermatology with a variety of questions. Although the product is quite familiar, its history and variety of uses are lesser known. With many surprising health benefits and a tradition of safety, Botox has earned its place as a staple of aesthetic skin care.

Keralase: An all-new revolutionary hair therapy
Keralase is an all-new revolutionary therapy for thinning hair. The LaseMD Treatment assists the KeraFactor tropical growth factors.

The scalp is prepared for the Keralase treatment by the LaseMD laser, which conditions your scalp to absorb as much as possible during the treatment.

Once the scalp is prepared, the KeraFactor serum is applied on to the scalp to rejuvenate and boost the growth of healthier hair with volume. No needles are used in the procedure since the serum is applied topically.

The Keralase treatment is non-invasive, quick and requires no down time. It is painless as the hair follicles of the scalp are opened by the laser. It typically runs over the course of three months (subject to the discretion of the treating dermatologist) and its effect continues for over 12 – 18 months.

KeraFactor is the serum used in this treatment and it specifically aims to improve deficiencies that result in the deterioration of your scalp.

The five bio-identical growth factors and two skin proteins that engineer the serum are developed and designed to boost absorption and thicken hair volume.
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 genetics 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.
