BOTOX®, DYSPORT™, XEOMIN®

What is the different types?:

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. The drugs are thought to work in the same way, by blocking nerve signals to the muscles, thus relaxing them.. The most common targets are horizontal lines across the forehead and perpendicular frown lines between the brows (also called “The Elevens”), but many also rely on Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin for crow’s feet, nasal squint lines, lines around the neck, eyebrow lifting, and even profuse underarm sweating and migraines.

Properly administered, the results of the injection(s) areas and rarely do  affect the surrounding muscles or travel around the whole body, as commonly feared when first came out.

By reducing the intensity and frequency of contraction-induced wrinkles, these treatments also prevent the formation of deeper lines in the long run, making them an increasingly popular rejuvenation wellness.

Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin have been safe  for all skin types and skin colors.

  • How does the treatment feel?

    During the treatment, a very fine needle is injected into each specific muscle for a few seconds with only the minor discomfort of a tiny pinch.  For ultra-sensitive types, topical anesthetic cream or ice can be applied beforehand if necessary.

  • HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?  usually takes about 15 to 20 minutes depending on how many areas you do.
  • ARE THERE IMMEDIATE SIDE EFFECTS?  Some patients experience slight redness or swelling at the sites, but only momentarily, so you can go about your normal activities immediately after treatment.  You may also have slight bruising at the injection site, but nothing that a little concealer can’t hide.
  • WHAT ARE ANTICIPATED RESULTS?  You should notice smoother, more wrinkle-free skin within 2 to 3 days post injection, but the full effects won’t appear for about 2 weeks. It may take as long as a month for results to peak on areas with stronger muscles, particularly in men.  At full throttle, your skin will feel smoothed and lifted, with a more youthful and awakened appearance.  These results tend to last 4 to 6 months, at which point the muscle movement gradually returns and the wrinkles and lines start to reappear, but often less severe than before because the muscle is being trained to relax more.
  • RECOMMENDED COURSE FOR OPTIMAL RESULTS?  For optimal results, schedule touch-ups every 4 to 6 months, according to how your skin responds to the treatment. The good news: intervals between treatments may widen over time because your muscles will become more relaxed and require less maintenance.

    We recommended to stay upright for at least 2 to 4 hours after injection to maintain the injectable…let’s take the advice and stay on the safer side. Just incase don’t do  going to gym, massage, etc.  Instead, sit up straight and have a glass of champagne to celebrate your treatment.
