(eliminates fine lines and wrinkles by relaxing the muscle)
BOTOX temporarily smooths fine lines and creases created by the constant motion of your facial muscles, activated when you are frowning, squinting, and smiling. Wrinkles develop as a result of these repeated muscle actions. With BOTOX treatments, the muscle activity is relaxed, leaving you looking well-rested, refreshed, and younger.
WHAT IS BOTOX MADE OF?
AM I A CANDIDATE FOR BOTOX INJECTIONS?
BOTOX INJECTIONS COULD BE FOR YOU IF:
- You’re an adult with fine lines developing around your eyes, mouth, and forehead
- You feel the fine lines and wrinkles are giving you an older, tired appearance
- You are developing frown lines or a deep crease between your eyebrows
Most adults are good candidates for our BOTOX with a few exceptions. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or allergic to any of the ingredients, you are not a candidate.
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER BOTOX
WHAT ARE THE RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH BOTOX?
The results appear in about 3-10 days, so if you have an upcoming event and want to look your best, plan your treatment at least two weeks in advance.
HOW LONG DOES BOTOX LAST?
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BOTOX, DYSPORT, AND XEOMIN?
Xeomin is like BOTOX and Dysport in that it is an injectable form of Botulinum Toxin A, and that it helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. However, Xeomin doesn’t have preservative protein, which allows it to bind to the muscles immediately, producing a faster result. Xeomin avoids giving the face a “frozen” appearance, and looks and feels more natural. Additionally, Xeomin does not contain any additives and is only the Botulinum Toxin A, reducing the rare situation in which the body develops antibodies to the product.
Dysport and BOTOX are very similar. They are both forms of Botulinum Toxin Type A, FDA approved to reduce muscle movement. The main difference between the two is that Dysport has smaller protein molecules and is a more diluted formulation. Due to these differences, Dysport interacts differently in the body than BOTOX. Dysport, as a more diluted formula, spreads over a larger area. Often used to treat lines and creases in the forehead, the product is effective for facial areas with thinner muscles. One advantage is that fewer injections are needed. While Dysport is the perfect injectable for certain features, it may be less beneficial for smaller areas, such as the crease between the eyebrows or on those unattractive lines radiating from the mouth.
