Dr. Joel Schlessinger: Prevention talks to the doctor about botox treatments

Thinking About Botox? Read This First: Prevention interviews Dr. Joel Schlessinger about the most effective botox treatments.


Getting injections of the Botulinum toxin type A to reduce wrinkles is becoming increasingly popular. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, this practice grew 14% last year, to reach 5.4 million injections. This is according to “Thinking About Botox? Read This First” by Katie Becker in Prevention.

Many times, people also use Botox to reduce frown lines, which form between a person’s eyebrows because of repeated squinting or frowning. Because these lines are formed through facial movements, they can also occur in younger adults.

Here’s the question, though. Which brand of botox treatments works better?

It’s possible that many/most people don’t even know that there is a choice of brands. But, there is. There is Botox manufactured by Allergan and there is also Dysport by Medicis. In a study published in Dermatologic Surgery, it was determined that Dysport produced results more quickly. The study of botox treatments took place in multiple centers, with double-blind, placebo-controlled trials.

Dr. Joel Schlessinger served as head author of the Dermatologic Surgery and shares his perspective.

From interactions with his patients and colleagues, Dr. Joel Schlessinger sees Dysport as the better choice for faster results. In the study, improvement was seen as early as 24 hours after injection, with an average time of improvement being two to four days.

Dr. Joel Schlessinger discusses treatment for hyperpigmentation dark spots

Whole Living explores the challenge of “Clearing Up Dark Spots on Your Face” and Dr. Joel Schlessinger shares when to call in the professionals.


You know that summer is officially over when your beautiful summer color fades and brown patches – known as hyperpigmentation – appear. But, what do you do?

Whole Living shares information about the types of hyperpigmentation and then offers a series of tips on how to treat the condition. Then, Dr. Joel Schlessinger reveals when you should call in the experts for more significant treatment.

According to the American Osteopathic College of Dermatology, “Hyperpigmentation is a common, usually harmless condition in which patches of skin become darker in color than the normal surrounding skin. This darkening occurs when an excess of melanin, the brown pigment that produces normal skin color, forms deposits in the skin. Hyperpigmentation can affect the skin color of people of any race.”

Some types of skin are more prone to hyperpigmentation, especially with significant exposure to the sun. Regardless, if you have this condition, you want it fixed!

Dr. Joel Schlessinger offers insight into ways to tackle tougher hyperpigmentation dark spots.


There are prescription treatments that contain hydroquinone that do double duty in brightening your skin. Read the Whole Living article to get more specifics about hydroquinone and to hear what Dr. Joel Schlessinger has to say about how it works to lighten your skin.

Before you contact a doctor, though, you might consider non-prescription treatment for hyperpigmentation, found at

Dr. Joel Schlessinger interviewed as skin care expert by Women’s Day magazine

In the November 2011 issue of Women’s Day, Dr. Joel Schlessinger shares how to have younger looking skin.


The article is titled “Slow the Signs of Aging: Turn back the clock with the right skin care routine for your years” by Melissa Matthews-Brown.  The premise behind the article is that, for younger-looking skin, everyone should cleanse; apply eye cream; moisturize; and use a night cream.

Then, during each decade of your life, you simply need to add one treatment to your routine to continue to have fresher, more youthful skin.

Dr. Joel Schlessinger provides his expertise for women in their 30s and 40s who need to refine their skin care routine for this stage in their lives.


The solution? To add at-home microdermabrasion to their skin care. A microdermabrasion cream is similar to a facial scrub, but more powerful. It contains tiny crystals that smooth away dead skin cells and should be applied two to four times a month.

Excellent microdermabrasion cream and microdermabrasion scrub choices are available at, including:

  1. Neova Microdermabrasion Scrub: this product will refine your skin texture and is perfect for use between professional peels and washes.
  2. Clinicians Complex Microdermabrasion Cream: this product uses diamond-shaped magnesium oxide crystals and can be used in conjunction with skin bleaching products to lighten pigmented skin.
  3. Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion cream: this product uses pharmaceutical-grade crystals, plus lactic acid and soothing botanicals and mimics an in-office procedure in the comfort of your own home.
  4. Dermelect Cosmeceuticals Microdermabrasion 2-3 Facial Reveal: this product is formulated with high-quality Corundum Crystal and is suitable for all skin types except active acne.
