BOTOX, Xeomin & Dysport

What are Botox, Xeomin and Dysport?

Wrinkles occur over time due to constant contraction of muscles in our face where they insert into the skin. In small amounts, botulinum toxins such as Botox, Xeomin and Dysport act to temporarily reduce muscle activity in problem areas—and thus diminish wrinkles and creases. Botox, Xeomin and Dysport are extremely safe and can target multiple areas in the face, treating frown lines, forehead wrinkles, periorbital wrinkles (crow’s feet), bands in the neck, and drooping mouth corners.

While anesthesia is not typically required for Botox and Dysport injections, we often use anesthetic cream to eliminate any potential discomfort from the injection(s). While everyone heals differently, most patients can return to their normal lifestyle the same day or the day following treatment, with minimal swelling or bruising. Botox, Xeomin and Dysport will take up to a week to take effect and generally last for three to four months before gradually wearing off.

If you do not have wrinkles currently, Botox, Xeomin and Dysport can help prevent them from ever forming. We customize the amount of Botox, Xeomin or Dysport we use in each patient, as each patient will require differing amounts to be effective.

We often combine Botox, Xeomin or Dysport with other invasive and noninvasive treatments for the desired, natural result. It should be noted that Botox, Xeomin or Dysport may not help patients with severe, deep wrinkles. Other treatment modalities can be utilized in these circumstances.
