How can Botox help you look younger?

When you smile, do you see fine lines and wrinkles forming in your face? These are the early signs of aging, and fortunately, there is botoxsomething you can do about them. It’s called Botox, and it’  helps to smooth your wrinkles and fine lines. Your dermatologists at Anderson Skin & Cancer Clinic want to share the magic of Botox and what it can do for you. They have several office locations in Anderson, Seneca, and Abbeville, SC to serve all of your dermatology needs.

Your body changes as you age, and so does your skin. The result is the development of fine lines and wrinkles along lines of expression around your eyes, forehead and other areas of your face.

Botox works beneath the skin's surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow's feet to form over time. Botox is injected into the muscle to temporarily reduce their activity. It smooths out the skin, giving you a more youthful look.  It will reduce the appearance of:

  • Lines at the corners of your eyes, known as crow’s feet
  • Lines between your eyebrows, known as glabella
  • Lines running across your forehead, known as furrows

Botox is injected using a tiny needle, with minimal to no discomfort. The amount of injections you need depends on the areas being treated. You can expect to see results in 3 to 7 days, and results usually last up to 4 months.

It’s time to say goodbye to the early signs of aging and hello to Botox. You deserve to look your best so call your dermatologists at Anderson Skin & Cancer Clinic, with offices in Anderson, Seneca, and Abbeville, SC. Call today!

Find out simple yet effective ways to protect your skin and keep it cancer

Whether you spend a lot of time outside soaking up the sun’s rays or you suffered from some pretty nasty sunburns as a child, there are many factors that can increase your chances of developing skin cancer. Fortunately, our dermatologists at Anderson Skin and Cancer Cilnic in Anderson and Seneca, SC, are here to provide you with a plethora of ways to protect your skin and reduce your chances of skin cancer:

Know When to Seek Shade

The sun’s rays are their strongest between the hours of 10AM-4PM, so if you want to truly protect your skin you’ll want to stay in and avoid the sun during these hours. Of course, we understand that it isn’t always possible to hide out (particularly if you work outdoors), so we offer some other helpful hints for when you do have to go outside during these peak times.

Always Wear Sunscreen

Sunscreen is one of the best ways to protect your skin from the harmful effects of the sun and it’s such a simple step you can take. Wearing sunscreen that provides protection against both UVA and UVB rays is necessary. Also look for a sunscreen that contains at least an SPF of 30 or higher. Apply sunscreen about 30 minutes before going outside and be generous when it comes to putting it on. Be sure to always reapply after sweating or swimming.

Protect Against Sunburns

One of the worst things for your skin is to get sunburned. While this happens to a lot of people, make sure that you and your family always wear protective clothing, hats and sunscreen when outside. It’s always a good idea to keep newborns out of the sun as much as possible. Once your little one turns six months old you can start applying sunscreen whenever your baby goes outside.

Stay Away from Tanning Beds

It should go without saying that using a tanning bed is so very dangerous for the health of your skin. Decades ago people didn’t quite understand the extent of damage tanning beds could cause their skin, but now we do. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, people who have used a tanning bed before the age of 35 increase their chances of developing melanoma by about 75 percent.

Get Professional Screenings in Anderson and Seneca, SC

It’s always a good idea, even if you do stay out of the sun often enough, to come in once a year for a professional skin cancer screening. While you should be performing self-exams every month so that you can detect changes that might warrant a trip to our office, it’s best to play it safe and visit us annually, too.

Skin cancer can be scary, but it’s important that you have a dermatologist that you can trust to make sure that you get the quality skin care you deserve. Whether you want to schedule a skin cancer screening or you have questions about your skin care regime, call Anderson Skin and Cancer Clinic, your dermatologist in Anderson and Seneca, SC who can help.
