The Buzz

OneSkin Dermatology offers neuromodulators, including BOTOX and Dysport, to help relax dynamic facial muscles and prevent fine lines caused by expressive movement and aging. Dr. Rachel Day's "less is more" approach will help you achieve a refreshed, natural appearance at OneSkin Dermatology in Chambersburg, PA

This injectable treatment can offer outstanding results and is commonly used by many individuals. It can significantly improve fine lines and wrinkles caused by expressive movement of the contracting muscles on the forehead and around the eyes. These facial lines may or may not go away when the face is relaxed. This muscle relaxer is a clean and purified strain of type A botulinum toxin that temporarily freezes the movements of the facial muscle. To soften facial wrinkles, BOTOX is carefully injected into the face. The result is smoother skin on the forehead and around the eyes. Rachel Day, M.D. most commonly administers BOTOX injections between the eyebrows, around the eyes (Crow's feet), and across the forehead.

Ideal Candidates

BOTOX injections are a good option for patients who wish to soften the visible look of lines and wrinkles on their upper face without surgery. BOTOX can also be used as a preventive anti-aging treatment even if you do not show signs of aging — keep in mind how often you find yourself making facial expressions. With BOTOX, you can get ahead of the effects of aging. It's a terrific, noninvasive treatment if you are frustrated by forehead wrinkles or parallel lines between the brows. It's also a great solution for lines around the eyes.

What to expect

BOTOX treatments are completed as an outpatient procedure on-site at OneSkin Dermatology. Even if it is your first visit to our office in Chambersburg, PA, we may perform the treatment on the same day as your initial consultation with Dr. Day. You will be asked to make various expressions using your upper face, like frowning, squinting, smiling, etc., to help us to mark where the injections will be placed. Your face will be prepared and BOTOX will be applied with a fine needle. Dr. Day will then use a cool compress to help decrease discomfort, swelling, and bruising. Prior to the procedure, you can ask for a numbing cream to help make your BOTOX experience more comfortable, but it usually is unnecessary. BOTOX treatments typically take around 10 – 15 minutes, and you may resume your usual routine right away.

The Afterglow

Following the procedure, you can get right back to your typical routine, although strenuous activity should be skipped for at least a day. You should sleep with your head elevated for at least one night and avoid touching your face. Doing so can accidentally spread the BOTOX to other areas. The injected sections of your face can appear bruised, red, or swollen for 2 – 3 days, but there should be no severe or lasting side effects. In many cases, it takes around one week before the final results of BOTOX can be seen. The results usually last 3 – 4 months. You can talk to your BOTOX injector about the best time to schedule your next appointment with OneSkin Dermatology to extend your results.

Just Express Yourself

With BOTOX, you can laugh, smile, frown, and make any face you want without increasing your fine lines and wrinkles. To prevent and smooth lines across the face, we invite you to schedule an appointment with board-certified dermatologist Dr. Rachel Day in Chambersburg, PA to hear more about this popular, nonsurgical facial relaxer.
