-- Everyone moves their facial muscles in a repetitive way, which can lead to wrinkles and fine lines. Over the last few years, both men and women have turned to Botox treatments for a renewed appearance. Dr. John Phillips invites patients to visit Dermatology Associates of South MS, PLLC for Botox in Biloxi to rejuvenate and revitalize their appearance.
"Your face shows all of your emotions to the world - laughter, sadness, anger and surprise. A lifetime of emotions means your facial muscles have been put to the test, leading to wrinkles, crow's feet, and even laugh lines," said Dr. John Phillips, a dermatologist in Biloxi. "All of these signs of emotion can leave you looking older than your years. With advancements in technology, your dermatologist can significantly reduce the appearance and signs of aging on your face with Botox," said Dr. John Phillips.
Unlike soft tissue fillers such as Juvederm that add volume to skin depressions, Botox blocks the release of a chemical called acetylcholine which triggers the muscle contractions that create wrinkles. Botox essentially paralyzes the muscles and stops them from contracting. Results are typically visible within approximately one week after treatment and remain for a minimum of three months. Anyone in generally good health who has fairly shallow fine lines and wrinkles may be good candidates for Botox treatments in Biloxi with Dr. John Phillips of Dermatology Associates of South MS, PLLC.
Botox works to relax the contraction of muscles by blocking nerve impulses. The result is muscles that can no longer contract-relaxing and softening patients' wrinkles in Biloxi. Typically, it will take two to four days to see cosmetic improvement with results that can last anywhere from four to six months. Most patients require retreatment to remove wrinkles and lines as they begin to reappear, but after each injection the wrinkles return as less severe as the muscles are trained to relax.
The procedure does not require anesthesia and usually takes just a few minutes to perform. The protein is injected into the muscle using a fine needle in order to minimize discomfort and maximize accuracy. It is recommended that patients avoid alcohol for approximately a week before the procedure. In order to minimize bruising, patients should stop using aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications about two weeks before their treatment. Normal activities can be resumes immediately, but Dr. John Phillips of Dermatology Associates of South MS, PLLC, dermatology in Biloxi, MS, may advise patients to stay out of the sun.
"Everyone has unique expressions. We move our facial muscles in a repetitive way and over time those repetitive movements cause wrinkles and fine lines. No one likes the fact that those lines make him or her look and feel older than they really are. Botox treatments can help both men and women rejuvenate and revitalize their appearance," said Dr. John Phillips about Botox in Biloxi.
Patients should visit Dermatology Associates of South MS, PLLC, a Biloxi, MS dermatology practice, if they are interested in Botox. Dr. John Phillips will be able to discuss the procedure and help each patient decide if Botox is an appropriate treatment for his or her skin's appearance.
