Botox, Dysport and Xeomin all belong to the class of drugs known as “neuromodulators.” They are injectable treatments to reduce the appearance of dynamic lines and wrinkles. They can also be used to lift the brow, reduce the appearance of jowls and neck bands, shape the jawline and more.
How does it work?
Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are comprised of a naturally-occurring, purified protein. They can be used to safely and temporarily disable muscles by blocking the transmission of neurological signals. It is strategically administered to prevent contraction of specific muscles that cause creases, wrinkles and other aesthetic issues of the face and neck.
Expert knowledge of facial anatomy is the key to outstanding results. Precise dose and placement determines success of the treatment
Botox®, Dysport and Xeomin are cosmetic treatments designed to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, specifically crow’s feet and frown lines located between the eyebrows. The recurring use of muscles which allow our faces to squint and frown make the skin crease and wrinkle and these imperfections can worsen over time. The Botox®, Dysport or Xeomin injections will lessen muscle activity temporarily which causes a visible change in the creases and lines of the face. To work on the muscles which result in folds of the skin, Botox®, Dysport and Xeomin are used beneath the surface.
What are Facial Fillers?
Facial fillers are cosmetic tools which are injected into the skin and are typically made from calcium hydroxyl apatite, hyaluronic acid, and collagen. These chemicals assist to rejuvenate skin, reduce wrinkles, raise scar depressions, enhance lips, and replace volume loss in soft tissues of the face. These products are used as a cosmetic treatment for multiple issues but typically the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles. They can offer temporary or more long-lasting results by employing small injections which work beneath the skin. These treatments “fill in” folds and lines of the face which have lost collagen and/or fat. Restylane®, Sculptra®, Radiesse®, and Juvéderm® are examples of facial fillers.
How Long will the Procedure Take?
Customarily, the facial filler and Botox® procedures will take roughly 10 to 20 minutes. The exact time will vary contingent on the patient, the wrinkle size, and how many areas of the face are being treated. If the patient is addressing a small number of imperfections or concerns the time frame of the procedures will be reduced. A number of small injections will be made under the skin’s surface during the procedure. The amount and type of medication used and how many injections are dispensed will be depend on the size and location of the wrinkle or crease.
