Wrinkle Relaxing Treatments
What are Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin?
Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are three different FDA-approved treatments to reduce the appearance of both moderate to severe forehead (glabella) lines, as well as crow’s feet( wrinkles) lines around the eyes. They contain a tiny amount of highly purified protein.
How do Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin work?
It is the repeated muscle contractions( movement) over the years that lead to the development of frown lines and crow’s feet, and these products target those muscles.
What to expect?
The treatment takes only a few minutes and involves a few injections with a small needle. There is really no recovery time and you can resume normal activity right after you leave the office. You begin to see results within a few days, but it takes up to 2 weeks to completely take effect. These wrinkle-relaxing treatments last between three and four months.
Do men receive treatment?
Yes. Both men and women were included in the FDA clinical trials to approve these wrinkle-reducing treatments. Men especially like this procedure because there is no downtime.
