Wrinkles and fine lines are bound to appear eventually, even if you carefully avoid the sun and care for your skin. Crow’s feet, fine lines, and wrinkles begin to develop as collagen reduces with age. While it is natural for wrinkles, lines, and creases to appear with the passing years, your self-esteem and confidence can suffer. The good news is that your skin and face can be restored and rejuvenated, bringing back the fresher, plumper, smoother appearance associated with youth. Our Beverly Hills BOTOX, Dysport and Xeomin injections can help to resolve fine lines and wrinkles.
BOTOX, Dysport, and Xeomin all share similarities, but also have differences that mean one or more of these products is best for the treatment of certain areas. Knowing the differences between the three can give you a better understanding on how the skin professionals at Nassif Medspa can help you achieve the look you envision.
Dysport and BOTOX are very similar. They are both forms of Botulinum Toxin Type A, FDA approved to reduce muscle movement. The main difference between the two is that Dysport has smaller protein molecules and is a more diluted formulation. Due to these differences, Dysport interacts differently in the body than BOTOX. Dysport, as a more diluted formula, spreads over a larger area. Often used to treat lines and creases in the forehead, the product is effective for facial areas with thinner muscles. One advantage is that fewer injections are needed. While Dysport is the perfect injectable for certain features, it may be less beneficial for smaller areas, such as the crease between the eyebrows or on those unattractive lines radiating from the mouth.
Xeomin is like BOTOX and Dysport in that it is an injectable form of Botulinum Toxin A, and that it helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. However, Xeomin doesn’t have preservative protein, which allows it to bind to the muscles immediately, producing a faster result. Xeomin avoids giving the face a “frozen” appearance, and looks and feels more natural. Additionally, Xeomin does not contain any additives and is only the Botulinum Toxin A, reducing the rare situation in which the body develops antibodies to the product.
The product used will depend upon the area of the face that needs to be restored to a more youthful, fresh appearance. At Nassif Medspa, our professionals use the product that will best resolve the specific area. Combinations of these three products will often be part of your custom treatment plan.
Once your treatment is complete, the results last for three to six months, depending on how the products are used. When the fine lines and wrinkles begin to reappear, it is time for your next treatment. There is no recovery time for BOTOX, Dysport, or Xeomin, so you will be able to resume your normal activities immediately after each of your Beverly Hills BOTOX treatments.
BOTOX is one of the most extensively researched cosmetics in the world, and has continued to gain in popularity with both men and women. The product is FDA-approved to temporarily reduce the appearance of frown lines and crow’s feet. It works by limiting the motion of specific facial muscles – those that are continually contracting, eventually creating visible creases and lines. It has a beautiful smoothing effect that leaves you looking refreshed, younger, and more attractive.
While patients vary, as each person has a unique physiology, it will usually take between twenty-four to forty-eight hours for the smoothing effect of BOTOX to appear, reaching the maximum improvement at about day 30.
Typical results of the treatment will last for about three months or longer. When the treated muscles once again begin to contract, you can return for your next treatment. Many people make BOTOX treatments a standard part of a standard beauty regimen.
BOTOX treatments are popular, and offers for discounts can be found online – but could pose a risk. The FDA has warned that counterfeit products have been found in the USA. Being injected with any product other than the FDA-approved version could be dangerous to your health. Beyond the health risks, the skill with which the product is injected is a critical point. At Nassif Medspa in Beverly Hills, you can be confident that your treatment will be performed correctly and safely. Don’t take risks when it comes to any facial treatment or centers that offer cut-rate prices on BOTOX.
BOTOX is one of the most extensively researched (and used) cosmetics in the world. First FDA approved in 2002, it has been used millions of times on millions of patients across the globe. Side effects are extremely rare, and it is considered to be a very safe product when used correctly. In fact, the uses of BOTOX have expanded, and it is now approved to treat more conditions, including migraines. Initially approved by the agency to treat crow’s feet and creases between the brows, it is now approved to treat forehead lines and creases. Side effects are typically very minor, such as bruising or swelling at the injection site, which quickly fade. Always have your BOTOX treatments from a reputable clinic where every treatment is overseen by a skilled plastic surgeon, such as Nassif Medspa in Beverly Hills.
