Botox | Dysport | Xeomin
Smooth wrinkles, crow’s feet, brow lines & forehead wrinkles with the #1 Cosmetic treatment in the world.
Age Gracefully With Wrinkle Relaxers
As we age and repeatedly use the muscles in our face, wrinkles form and become visible around our eyes and forehead. Injectables have been used for years as a proven way to reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and facial creases. BOTOX is a popular neuromuscular modulator, FDA-approved as a treatment to reduce crow’s feet and visible, unattractive forehead creases.
What Is Botox?
BOTOX has truly changed the way we view cosmetic procedures and pioneered the injectables industry. It was FDA approved in 2002 to treat wrinkles in between the eyebrows, and from there it quickly gained popularity. With a wide variety of cosmetic and medical applications, BOTOX is one of the most diverse and widely used injectables to this day.
How Botox Can Help You Look Younger
Neuromodulators, such as Botox, are injectables that target dynamic lines and wrinkles. These types of creases form whenever you laugh, frown, squint, cry, or smile. Neuromodulators block the wrinkle-formation process through the use of chemical signals that temporarily prevent muscle contraction. The result is softer appearing facial features resulting in a more rested, youthful appearance.
What's The Difference Between
Botox, Dyport, and Xeomin?
While each of these products do the same job, they each have small differences in the way they are formulated. After we know your medical history, your desired goal, and if you’ve had luck with neuromodulators in the past, your practitioner can help you decide which neurotoxin might be right for you.
Dysport has the most active ingredients of all neuromodulators on the market.
Dysport results can be seen in a little as 3 days (1-2 weeks to see the full effects).
Dysport has a smaller molecular trace which is great for larger areas due to slight spreading.
Botox has half the active ingredients compared to Dysport.
Botox results are typically seen in 7 days (2 weeks to see the full effects).
Botox is known to appear more "stiff", thus making it the ideal option to treat smaller areas where spreading is not wanted.
Xeomin is considered a "naked" form of toxin due to no added proteins in the formulation. Both Botox and Dysport contain accessory proteins.
It has been seen many times where people are resistant to neuromodulators. This purified structure may help prevent antibody resistance over time.
Xeomin lasts between 3-4 months.
Xeomin results may be seen sooner due to it's purified formula.
What To Expect
With Wrinkle Relaxers
Your results will remain for approximately three to four months before the muscles slowly begin to move again. Maintenance treatments every three to four months will ensure you always look youthful and rejuvenated.
The reduced muscle activity starts immediately after receiving your injections and early results may be noticed as soon as two days with full results evident at two weeks. Over the week or so following your procedure, you will see a significant reduction in the appearance of wrinkles, even when smiling or frowning.
Additional Uses For Wrinkle Relaxers
Neuromodulators works by inhibiting the overactive muscles responsible for the bumpy texture of an orange peel chin. It effectively smooths the skin's surface by reducing muscle contractions.
Facial Slimming/TMJ Pain
Masseter Botox treats several conditions caused by tightened masseter muscles. This includes teeth grinding, clenching, jaw pain, and headaches. Masseter Botox is also used for cosmetic purposes to slim the face down by reducing the size of the jaw muscles.
Botox injections have been FDA approved to treat excessive sweating, also known as, Hyperhidrosis. Botox injections use botulinum toxin to block the nerve signals responsible for sweating, stopping the sweat glands from producing too much sweat.
Botox is FDA-approved to treat chronic migraines. Botox prevents, on average, 8 to 9 headache days and migraine/probable migraine days a month.
When treating fine lines and wrinkles, botulinum toxin is injected into targeted muscles on the face or neck. This temporarily relaxes the targeted muscles, causing fine lines and wrinkles to diminish.
Patients explain the feeling of injection as a tiny pinch, but not painful. The effects last about 3 to 4 months.
Do not lay down for 4-6 hours after treatment to avoid migration of the toxin.
Avoid placing excessive pressure on the treated area for the remainder of the day.
Be gentle to the treated areas when cleansing the face/applying makeup.
Avoid exercise for 24 hours.
Avoid extreme temperatures for 24 hours.
Redness/swelling/bruising/tenderness is normal at injection sites.
Pressure/tension headaches can develop 1-2 days after treatment & Tylenol is recommended
How Does Botox Work?BOTOX was developed to target the cause of fine lines and wrinkling. Over time, facial expressions such as squinting, smiling or frowning cause the facial skin to contract, over and over. BOTOX is injected into the muscles in constant motion, causing them to relax. With reduced muscle activity you will see smoother skin and fewer facial lines.
When Should You Start Getting Botox?There is no set age to start getting BOTOX treatments. If you are in your mid-20s, you might begin to see superficial lines around your eyes. Or maybe a bit later in life, you notice wrinkling, deeper creases created by facial motions, called “dynamic wrinkles.” Men and women of all ages can benefit from BOTOX injections.
Does Botox treatment hurt?BOTOX is injected using a tiny needle, and most patients do not find the injections painful. You may feel a small pinch from the needle at the injection site.
When will I see results?You should begin to see results in a few days after your BOTOX injections. Optimal results are achieved at two weeks.
How long do wrinkle relaxers last?Depending on how well you care for your skin, neurotoxin injections can last in the range of three to five months before requiring retreatment.
How much Botox will I need?This varies depending on several factors. These are the most common dosage range per area being treated. 11 Lines: 20-30 Units Forehead Lines: 12-24 units Crows Feet: 9-15 units each eye Lip Flip: 4-8 units Chin Dimpling: 6-12 units
Can I get Botox while pregnant or breastfeeding? (This includes all neuromodulators)It is not recommended to receive any BOTOX treatments while pregnant or breastfeeding. The effects of the treatment are local but pregnant women must be more careful than others due to the growing baby. During this time alternative treatments such as mild facial treatments can keep your skin fresh and glowing.
Which is better: Botox or Fillers?While both Botox and dermal fillers like Restylane are long-lasting treatments that can be used to reduce wrinkles, they each take slightly different approaches, treat slightly different problems, and are used in different areas of the face. Botox relaxes muscles so they don't contract and form creases, while dermal fillers fill in or plump up areas that have lost volume or smoothness.
