Facial expressions and repeated movement of the muscles cause (dynamic) fine lines and wrinkles. During the aging process, these lines ibecome more pronounced. Neuromodulator medication such as Botox, Xeomin, Dysport help relax these muscle contractions and soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles. They are not permanent solutions and must be repeated every 3 to 4 months to maintain optimal results. Early prevention is also key so lines don't have the time to become so deep that they can't be fully corrected with such treatment.
Botox Cosmetic is a non-invasive treatment that minimizes and relaxes frown lines, crows feet, and wrinkles. It works by relaxing the muscles responsible for facial expressions which over time cause fine lines/wrinkles. Botox can also be used to treat migraines and excessive sweat. It is the most widely used injectable to date. Botox is FDA approved and millions of people receive this treatment every year.
Xeomin is a Botox alternative. It is unique in the neurotoxin family because it's been purified to remove unnecessary proteins and isolate the therapeutic component. Just like Botox, this is a fast non-invasive treatment that minimizes and relaxes frown lines, crows feet, and wrinkles. Xeomin is FDA approved and millions of people receive this treatment every year.
Dermal fillers are used to improve shallow/hallow contours, soften facial creases, minimize the appearances of wrinles and scars, add volume to thin lips, correct imperfections such as dark circles under the eyes and bumps and asymmetries on the nose.
Popular treatments include lip enhancement, lower eyelid rejuvenation, non-surgical facelift and non-surgical rhinoplasty.
Dermal fillers are not permanent, so it is necessary to come in for periodic touch-ups to maintain results. Each filler brand and type has a different length of longevity. This can vary from 6 months up to 2 years and varies from person to person.
