Botox & Xeomin
Fine Lines & Wrinkles
If you would like to treat facial wrinkles in the forehead, between the eyes, and in the “crow’s feet” areas around your eyes, each of these injectable products can achieve elimination of facial wrinkles in these areas. Different from injectables that add fullness and volume to your skin, the following methods use a key protein that’s been medically used in treating muscle spasms for a number of years and has proven to be very effective in wrinkle reduction.
Dynamic wrinkles on the face are primarily caused by subtle contractions of your delicate core facial muscles each and every time you laugh, frown, and smile. Over time, they inevitably form deeper wrinkles and lines. Both a cosmetic surgeon and rhinoplasty specialist see evidence of this on a daily basis. The procedure is a widespread technique that’s used to safely treat facial lines by injecting a very small amount into a target area on the face, which works to block the nerve impulse that leads to the muscle beneath the skin. The results can last anywhere from 3- 6 weeks. But, over time the length of treatment benefits can increase. Also, there is virtually no downtime for the procedure that works to improve frown lines, forehead and neck wrinkles, and crow’s feet.
Other Therapeutic Treatments Using Botox Include:
• Eye twitching
• Muscle spasms
• Migraine headaches
• Underarm sweating
• TMJ pain
Xeomin is a prescription drug that’s used to aesthetically improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines located between the eyes. The active ingredient in this cosmetic drug is used to enhance the appearance of dynamic facial lines such as glabellar frown lines. It affects your muscle’s nerve endings in order to prevent the muscle fibers from continuously contracting. By greatly reducing these facial contractions, Xeomin has the ability to temporarily diminish frown lines on the forehead that rest between the eyes. Many times a rhinoplasty specialist will address this key area while performing another procedure during surgery.
If you want a minimally invasive, quick cosmetic treatment that will enhance the overall appearance of fine lines and wrinkles due to the natural process of aging, one of these techniques may be for you. These facial revitalizing techniques have virtually no side effects, while giving you a refreshed and youthful appearance overall.
