Acne is the term used to describe blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, minor lumps or any plugged pores that occur on the face or upper torso. While most major acne problems occur during adolescence, this condition can occur before and after the teenage years.
There are a number of oral and topical medications available to treat mild to moderate acne. While the ingredients and directions vary from product to product, most of these medications involve either decreasing your skin’s natural oil production, or removing dirt and oil from the targeted area. This will lessen the severity and frequency of acne outbreaks.
Botox® is a very purified toxin derived from the bacteria clostridium botulinum. It is designed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and frown lines. Botox is injected into the skin in very small and safe amounts. It selectively blocks the function of specific muscles that cause wrinkles to form. Botox is typically injected into the frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet lines. It is also an excellent method for treating excess sweating under the arms, the palms and bottom of the feet. It reduces or eliminates sweating for up to 9 months.
Following the first session, results may last 3 to 4 months. After subsequent sessions, results can last 5 to 6 months. Botox wears off gradually, so there is enough time to schedule subsequent appointments.
