Botox injections have become quite widespread in reducing the appearance of some facial wrinkles, and although there are now many other injectable options, Botox is still the popular choice. Botox injections temporarily relaxes the facial muscles that cause wrinkles, such as frown lines, between your eyebrows, crow’s-feet, the lines that fan out from the corners of your eyes, and the horizontal forehead lines that form when you raise your eyebrows. This well-known “wrinkle eraser” is not just for cosmetic purposes, however, and is also used to treat a list of problems including recurring neck spasms, certain causes of crossed eyes, overactive bladder, and excessive sweating. Our Dana Point cosmetic dermatologist, at Advanced Dermatology, Inc., also uses Botox injections on some of our patients to help prevent chronic migraines.

Our Dana Point cosmetic dermatologist explains to each patient how Botox injections block specific chemical signals from nerves, mainly signals that cause muscles to contract. Botox is a prescription medicine that is injected directly into the chosen muscle with significant, noticeable results, without surgery and no recovery time. Botox was the first drug to use botulinum toxin, produced by the microbe that causes botulism. Botulism is actually a type of food poisoning, but in this application it temporarily paralyzes muscle activity.

Introduced by a company called Allergan, Botox has been around for over 20 years, and has an extremely high effectiveness and safety rate. In order to maintain its effect, Botox must be injected every three to six months to keep up the look of reduced wrinkles and smoother skin. Of course, it is far more important who is injecting your Botox, their technique, as well as their understanding of the product itself. Our well-educated Dana Point cosmetic dermatologist keeps current with all the latest in cosmetic and Botox advancements. Board certified, our doctors use cutting-edge technology and equipment, offering exceptional service and personalized care to all of our patients. With all the choices available for cosmetic enhancements, our Dana Point cosmetic dermatologist is happy to consult with you to make sure that Botox injections are the right choice for you.

At Advanced Dermatology, Inc., one of the most common reasons that patients seek the expertise of our Dana Point dermatologist is for psoriasis treatment. Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition, meaning that it occurs long term. The condition occurs when skin cells are developing too quickly, and therefore results in abnormal patches of skin. The patches vary in color from white, to silvery, to red, and are usually thicker than regular skin development. For people without psoriasis, new skin cells grow gradually and flake off after about four weeks. The difference for people with psoriasis is that their new skin cells move up to the surface within just days rather than weeks. Depending on the individual, the patches can be large or small, and they can occur in different places around the body. For most people, the patches occur on the knees, elbows, scalp, hands, feet, or the back.

Although psoriasis is most common in adults, it can occur in younger teens and children as well. The main reason that psoriasis occurs in the first place is as a result of an overactive immune system. Psoriasis sometimes also runs in families, so if you have a family member with psoriasis you may have an increased chance of developing the condition as well. If you think you may have psoriasis and are looking for top of the line treatment, be sure to schedule an appointment with our Dana Point dermatologist as soon as possible. During your visit at our office, we will look at your skin and possibly perform a skin KOH test in order to confirm a diagnosis of psoriasis. From there, we will be able to discuss possible treatment options.

For most cases of psoriasis, simple changes to your lifestyle can make a big difference. Our Dana Point dermatologist recommends that you use creams and lotions in order to keep your skin smooth and moist. We may also recommend that you use special UV lights and specific medications depending on your specific symptoms. You should also avoid excess stress, smoking tobacco, using alcohol, excess time in the sun, and certain medications in order to prevent flare-ups of psoriasis. For more personally tailored treatment options, be sure to schedule an appointment with our experts at Advanced Dermatology, Inc..
