Botox®, Dysport®, & Xeomin® for Wrinkle Reduction
Botox® cosmetic is approved for the temporary reduction in the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles involving the glabellar region (frown lines between the eyebrows) and lateral canthal lines (crow's feet). Botox® works by decreasing the function of the muscle underlying the wrinkles, thus giving a smoother look to the skin above.
*Dysport® and Xeomin®available upon request.
The laser treatments for facial rejuvenation deliver high intensity energy to the skin, leading to controlled collagen contraction, new collagen production, and an increase in elastin production. This leads to skin tightening and decrease in rhytids (wrinkles).
Botox® for Vertical and Horizontal Lines of the Neck
For vertical neck lines, small amounts of Botox® are injected into the muscle in to cause relaxation of the underlying platysma muscle. This is done for each platysmal band. While necklace lines are treated by injecting small amounts of Botox® above and below the line. This again leads to relaxation of the underlying platysmal muscle and decrease in the prominence of these lines.
