Botox, Dysport and Xeomin
Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are all injectable neuromodulators, meaning they can temporarily alter the nerve impulses of targeted muscles, therefore reducing or eliminating contraction-induced wrinkles.
Each brand has a slightly different formulation of the same substance, bacterium Clostridium Botulinum, or Botulinum Toxin A, but they all work the same way: they block the nerve impulses of the injected muscles to temporarily paralyze muscle movements that cause wrinkles. There is a reason Botox® is the most popular cosmetic procedure in the world. It's simple, non-surgical, and there is no downtime from the procedure. After a treatment with Botox®, the lines on your face that make you look angry, worried and aged will soften, giving you a more relaxed, youthful appearance. With time and with consistent treatments, the lines eventually disappear, and many consider it to be a highly effective preventative procedure. The Houston Botox specialists at Village Dermatology in Memorial believe in a natural, not frozen look.
Common areas include the frown lines between the brows, forehead lines, and around the eyes (crow’s feet). Other areas that can be treated include a gummy smile, Masseter muscles to help improve clinching, grinding teeth and to slim the face, lines above the lips (sometimes called smokers lines), neck bands, down-turned smile, dimpled chin and sweating under the arms.
The procedure is simple and takes under 10 minutes to perform. There is minimal to no downtime following the procedure, and most patients return to work right away. Results can last up to 3 to 6 months, though individual results do vary. It is by far the cosmetic procedure with the highest patient satisfaction, and it is a wonderful yet simple way to invest in yourself. The result is a refreshed, restored, and rejuvenated you.
