What You Need to Know About BOTOX

BOTOX is one of the most popular cosmetic skin treatments today. The FDA approved it in 2002 to be used cosmetically, helping with visible signs of aging including fine lines and wrinkles on the face.

A BOTOX treatment uses a small amount of a diluted protein called botulinum toxin through targeted injections into the skin without the need for anesthesia. BOTOX works to relax the contraction of muscles by blocking nerve impulses, which in turn, causes wrinkles to relax and soften. It usually takes two to four days to see cosmetic improvement and the results tend to last from four to six months. You can return to normal activity, including heavy lifting, within a couple hours after treatment. It is recommended that patients avoid alcohol for about a week before the procedure. In addition, you should stop using aspirin and anti-inflammatory medication about two weeks prior to BOTOX in order to minimize the risk of bruising.

Now that you have an overview of what a BOTOX procedure involves, it is critical that you are aware of the most important rule to follow with BOTOX. For your safety and the results you desire, it is essential that you choose a board certified dermatologist. Avoid the urge to get quick BOTOX therapy at the mall, salon or at a trending “BOTOX party”. Buying a BOTOX type product online that does not require a medical license is even scarier. Getting a botulinum toxin therapy in a non-medical setting can be extremely dangerous to your health and can involve long-term muscle paralysis, Bell’s palsy or permanent eye damage.

Scheduling your BOTOX treatment at your dermatologist’s office, on the other hand, can effectively treat your signs of aging with the safety you need. No serious side effects such as problems breathing or swallowing have ever been reported by a patient that chose a dermatologist for BOTOX. Dermatologists continue to make patient safety their number-one priority. Each year, the AAD offers continuing medical education sessions that include best practices for treating patients with this treatment.

Olansky Dermatology Associates proudly offers successful BOTOX treatments to patients of all skin types. Choosing a dermatologist for BOTOX means you can regain a youthful appearance while getting the professional care and safety you need.

The doctors and PA’s are great and very knowledgeable. I never have to wait to long and the office staff is always very nice. I also take my son there and they are great with him as well. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology.

Olansky Dermatology is wonderful! Our whole family goes. My daughter has had terrible eczema through the years and both my kids had mollescum too. They always make things better and spend time explaining whats wrong and how to fix it.

I recently had a couple appointments at Olanksy Dermatology and was seen by Julia Lee. Julie was excellent and quickly took care of the issue I was having with my skin. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology and especially Julia Lee to anyone in need of a dermatologist.

I was actually running a bit late, but they were very friendly and knowledgeable about what was going on with my skin. And also very timely.I will definitely stick with them!

Khol S.

Very professional and pleasant staff. When I arrived at my appointment this afternoon I was informed that my doctor called out sick and they tried calling to let me know but I just recently changed my number so they were unable to reach me. The receptionist was so sweet and helpful. Instead of leaving and making a new appointment they fit me in without an issue and without any waiting.

Susan H.

Dr. Ilyas was highly recommended to me so I decided to change dermatologists. I am so glad as I am pleased with his expertise and his highly professional manner. I am also delighted with Emily Raville, Aesthetician. She does a wonderful job and I am recommending her to my friends as well. I am completely satisfied – can’t get any better than that!

Lindsay S.

I have been going to Olansky Dematology for many years now, whether for a specific problem, or just for a really great deep facial, and I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else. Every single staff member is knowledgeable and professional. The customer service I receive every visit leaves a positive and lasting impression. I always feel comfortable and at ease while I am there. Great staff!

Janet R.

I seem to live at this place! Whether it’s for an appointment with a doctor or for an aesthetic treatment, I am there frequently. I cannot say enough good things. Efficient, friendly, the best doctors, and a new aesthetic center with the latest in procedures and products to keep us looking almost as young as we feel. It’s always fun to see Emily and she knows just what to recommend.
