No matter how tedious your skin care regimen is, after years of environmental stressors and the body’s natural collagen breakdown, signs of aging are inevitable. We offer multiple FDA-approved injectables to treat fine lines and wrinkles.
Botox & Dysport
Botox injections target fine lines and wrinkles that have formed as a result of muscle movement. Treatment temporarily inhibits this movement in target areas to smooth existing facial creases and postpone the formation of future expression lines for a youthful appearance.
Botox is minimally invasive with little to no discomfort or downtime. Some patients start to see initial results in three to five days with full benefits appearing after two weeks. We recommend treatment every three to four months for best results.
Dysport is another neurotoxin injectable similar to Botox. It uses the same active ingredients to smooth and prevent fine lines and wrinkles but with added proteins. This lighter formula is best used in larger areas like the forehead as it can spread more easily.
Dysport is fast-acting, minimally invasive, and requires little to no downtime. Results can appear as quickly as two to three days after treatment. Quarterly appointments are recommended to maintain a youthful appearance.
Xeomin is an injectable used to treat expression lines and wrinkles, like the elevens between your eyebrows. It works by temporarily “freezing” or relaxing facial muscles to restrict movement in the same manner as other neurotoxins.
Unlike Botox or Dysport, Xeomin’s formulation does not use protein additives – it is a purified form of botulinum toxin type A. For this reason, patients are less likely to experience a negative reaction. One treatment typically takes less than ten minutes and results can last three to six months.
