Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes that can occur over time, reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals in the sun and the environment. When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. And when you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause crow’s feet. When we inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic it targets the repeated muscle contractions and temporarily reduces the muscle activity by blocking the nerve impulses in the muscle that causes wrinkles. When the muscle doesn’t contract the skin above it stays smooth.
BOTOX® Cosmetic targets these repeated muscle contractions .
You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows within 10 days and result will last about 4 months or longer, though many patients refresh their BOTOX® every 4-5 months.
Dysport is proven to help smooth the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines without changing the look or movement of the rest of your face. Like BOTOX®, Dysport works by temporarily blocking the signal from nerve to muscle, preventing contraction in the targeted area, and smoothing the skin above it. Untreated muscles still work normally, so you can continue to express feelings naturally.
Every time we laugh, frown, concentrate, or narrow our eyes in the sun, muscle contraction causes the skin to crease. As skin ages and elasticity decreases, these creases can become deeper, lingering even when the face is more relaxed. Regular treatment can have transformative effects as the patient “un-learns” the muscular habit that caused the wrinkles in the first place.
Results are visible in just 2-3 days and can last up to 4 months.
XEOMIN® is the new choice for wrinkle prevention. It is effective on frown lines and wrinkles between the eyebrows, forehead creases, lip lines, and crow’s feet as uses the same active ingredient as BOTOX® to reduce wrinkles by inhibiting these muscles, stopping wrinkles before they can form. The difference is that XEOMIN® contains no protein additives, therefore you may be less likely to develop a resistance to the XEOMIN® formulation.
You will start seeing results in just 3-10 days after treatment and will have your best results after 30 days. Results typically last three months or longer.
