Facial Rejuvenation with Neurotoxins
Botox has been smoothing lines and wrinkles for over 20 years. It's a safe way to temporarily eliminate expression lines and is the most versatile FDA-approved wrinkle-relaxing injectable because it treats three different areas of the face: the forehead, the area between the eyebrows, and the outer corners of the eyes. It has both cosmetic and medical uses and can help patients achieve different cosmetic and medical goals.
Cosmetic UsesForehead lines, frown lines, and crow's feet form in both men and women in different severities. However, if those lines are affecting your appearance, we can use Botox to temporarily smooth them. Whether you want to address one area, two, or all three, we can help you achieve your cosmetic goals during one appointment.
Medical UsesBotox also has some medical uses and can help patients suffering from hyperhidrosis, migraine pain, and TMJ find the relief they need. Hyperhidrosis is a condition in which patients experience excessive armpit sweating. No amount of deodorant or topical solutions can address this condition, but Botox injections into the different areas of the armpit can. The injections will block the sweat glands and decrease sweat output. We can also use Botox injections to alleviate migraine pain and TMJ pain. Migraines and TMJ pain are caused in part by tense muscles. By relaxing the muscles in the head and the jaw, we can help alleviate pain from these conditions and improve the quality of your life.
Xeomin is another highly purified wrinkle-relaxing injectable that contains neurotoxins, but it's unique in that it's made with a highly purified formula, free of any additional proteins. Patients with allergies may qualify for this injectable due to its purity. Xeomin treats frown lines between the brows and is an excellent solution for those looking for temporary relief from expression lines.
Dysport is another injectable neurotoxin that treats frown lines. However, its unique treatment protocol that includes a series of injections around the brows in five different areas will help you maintain the natural ability to express while simultaneously smoothing your frown lines. Whether you suffer from mild or more severe frown lines, this treatment option is an excellent solution to temporarily eliminate them.
