Facial wrinkles are in large are caused by facial muscles through repetitive motion, that create lines and wrinkles on your face. These lines and wrinkles are temporary at first, but over time, they can become more permanent. Genetics, family history and lifestyles such as smoking, and excessive sun exposure also factor into the wrinkle creation process. With the help of BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport or Xeomin, you will be able to temporarily “erase” your frown lines, the forehead lines, and the crows feet.
Come in for a complimentary consultation to decide which product and treatment is best for you.
Cosmetic injections using Botox, Dysport or Xeomin target one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet; repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. With continued treatment you’ll begin to notice a visible smoothing of these lines.
This treatment temporarily reduces the muscle activity that causes the facial expression that over time results in wrinkles. All three products, Botox, Dysport and Xeomin provide the same basic treatment. However, it is a matter of personal preference as to which product you want to use. Like choosing Coke or Pepsi, Chevrolet or Ford, etc. We can gladly go over each product and the benefits of each during your consultation.
This is a technique sensitive treatment. You should not lose the ability to show expression when you are treated by someone who is trained and familiar with facial anatomy. It is important to talk to your injector about the results you want from treatment. We pride ourselves on educating our patients on the different options available and taking the time to get to know how your muscles will respond to treatment. This relationship takes time to build but it enables you to have confidence in our ability to provide you with consistent results. Therefore, follow up and consistency is vital to produce the treatment results that you are wanting to achieve.
Botox, Dysport or Xeomin is not used to “fill in” facial lines and wrinkles. Please see our Dermal Filler page for information on treating lines and wrinkles not associated with muscle movement.
Some patients have reported that the injections feel like a little pinch. We take our time with each patient and exercise the utmost care when injecting to minimize discomfort. With full treatment, results can last 3-4 months. We recommend a touch-up treatment every 3 months to continue your desired look.
New patients should allow an hour for the assessment, consultation, facial mapping and injection treatment. However, our repeat patients can schedule their follow up appointments during their lunch break.
