Injectables Wrinkle Relaxers
Neuromodulators / Wrinkle Relaxers
BOTOX® Cosmetic is an FDA approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines in adults. BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Your specialist will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows that lasts for months.
What is Botox for?
Botox cosmetic is used to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles typically in the upper 1/3 of the face. Botox and it’s equivalents, Dysport® and Xeomin®, are all FDA approved, purified forms of botulinum toxin used in cosmetic settings to temporary treat overactive muscles that cause “dynamic” wrinkles.
Are Botox injections painful?
We use the smallest needles available to inject Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin. These are the same type needles used for daily insulin injections and most clients say the treatments are very tolerable and we have several clever methods to help those who are anxious about the injections.
How long will my Botox results last?
Botox effectively relaxes the muscles responsible for wrinkles for at least 3 months. It varies how long it will take wrinkles to reappear, but it is usually between 3-5 months for most patients.
What is the ideal age to start Botox treatments?
Although Botox Cosmetic is approved for adults over 18, we recommend treatments to begin when visible lines begin to appear even when muscles are relaxed.
Can I combine Botox and other dermal fillers or treatments?
Yes! You can safely combine your injectable treatments such as Botox cosmetic along with dermal fillers for convenience. Most individuals experience not only lines from overactive muscles but also volume loss as well as sun damage. Addressing all these factors of aging skin provide superior results! Many treatments such as chemical peels, certain laser and others can be followed with your Botox injections and many clients opt to have combination treatments at the same visit. Our expert injectors always provide consults to discuss the safest and most effective approach.
Prescription Dysport® injectable is a U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved treatment for temporarily lessening or eliminating moderate-to-severe frown lines between the eyebrows. Like BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport injectable is placed directly into the muscle underneath a furrow, weakening the muscle to the point where it cannot contract.
Dysport, also known as Reloxin, is made from a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum; it is the same neurotoxin used in BOTOX Cosmetic.
XEOMIN® is a highly purified neurotoxin. XEOMIN® approved by the FDA for the treatment of adults with moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. Frown lines form when facial expressions are made as the muscle under the skin contracts. Over time, as your skin ages, these repeated expressions cause lasting frown lines. Neurotoxins, such as XEOMIN®, are prescription medications that block the release of chemicals that cause these muscle contractions. So frown lines are softened.
