Botox® Cosmetic, Dysport® and XEOMIN® injections are popular treatments to minimize the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles like crow’s feet, frown lines between the eyebrows, and forehead wrinkles.
These facial lines are the result of repeated muscle contractions over many years. Botox® Cosmetic, Dysport® and XEOMIN® contain small amounts of highly purified Botulinum A neurotoxin. When they are injected into a targeted area, they work by temporarily reducing muscle activity in the area, resulting in a reduced appearance of the lines or wrinkles.
They are quick, outpatient procedures with low risk and require virtually no downtime following the treatment. Botox® Cosmetic, Dysport® and XEOMIN® are all FDA approved.
Botox® Cosmetic continues to be a popular choice for patients who want to reduce the visible signs of facial aging. It is one of the top five nonsurgical cosmetic procedures performed in the United States each year.
This treatment takes only 15 minutes and patients can return to their normal routines immediately. Results are typically visible within 24 to 48 hours and last up to four months.
Dysport® can be used to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet, frown lines and forehead wrinkles for patients under the age of 65. One injection can help improve the look of frown lines for up to four months. The treatment takes 15 minutes or less.
XEOMIN® is a little different than its counterparts in that the injection contains only Botulinum toxin A, with no additives. This reduces the possibility of an allergic reaction.
