Botox (Dysport, Xeomin) Reston
Neurotoxins, known by the brand names Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin® are purified botulinum toxin type A proteins that are administered by simple injections.
Low doses of the neurotoxin are most commonly injected directly into the wrinkles around, above and between your eyes.
It works by relaxing those muscles that have caused those smile lines and wrinkles to appear over time. And, when injected by Dr. Rostami who is known for her expert technique, can even create a temporary brow and eyelid lift.
The entire procedure for the eyes and forehead takes about ten minutes, more time is required if other areas are included. We ask you come in up to 30 minutes early for topical numbing cream application to help with any discomfort.
You can expect to see results within days after your treatment. The visible results of neurotoxins can last up to four months.
Botox Cosmetic, which is manufactured by Allergan–the company that manufactures the popular Juvederm dermal filler–is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines.
Botox has been extensively studied and is approved for cosmetic use in 78 countries. Botox can be used to treat abnormal spasms of the eyelids (blepharospasm), migraines, hyperhidrosis and many other conditions.
Botox has a record of experience and has been evaluated in both Allergan sponsored clinical trials as well as over 400 peer-reviewed articles in scientific and medical journals.
Many people think that injectable Botox is a dangerous toxin, but Botox Cosmetic contains tiny amounts of a highly purified botulinum toxin protein refined from the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum.
Millions of people have already made Botox Cosmetic a part of their lives, making it the No. 1 selling product of its kind in the world.
Dysport is an injectable very similar to Botox, though more effective for certain types of wrinkles such as Crow’s Feet.
Using diluted and refined Botulinumtoin A, neuronal activity to certain areas is deactivated. The muscles in this part of the face thus relax, reducing wrinkles.
You’ll Be Able to Smile Just Fine
Treatments like Dysport get a bad rap for preventing patients from making their full range of expressive emotions. This is not true. Dysport, when injected properly, allows patients their full expressive range – simply with less wrinkles.
If a patient finds themselves unable to smile, frown, or achieve any other expression properly, this is the result of a faulty provider. The provider may have accidentally injected Dysport into the wrong muscle group, leading to relaxation of muscles necessary for the full range of emotion.
Done properly, Dysport helps the patient achieve a fully natural look. It simply treats wrinkles caused by repetitive muscular contractions such as crow’s feet.
What Can Dysport Do?
Dysport can help smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows for men and women.
Dysport is recognized as a product that offers a more natural look compared to Botox.
Also, Dysport is approved in 57 countries and has 25 years of clinical experience worldwide and has been proven to help smooth the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows.
Why Should I Use Dysport?
Removing wrinkles does more than removing the signs of age. While some might opt for what they believe a more natural form of aging, the kinds of wrinkles are also subconsciously suggestive of personality.
Crow’s feet and frown lines often mistakenly give others the impression of tiredness or anger. Though very similar in formulation, Dysport happens to be more appropriate than Botox for specifically these conditions.
Dysport tends to be applied in a much more targeted fashion: typically in the area between the eyebrows. Because of that, fears of “frozen expression” can be further mitigated.
Patients interested in Dysport should talk to their general physician or find out more information from a specialist.
Because Dysport has temporary effects that have to be renewed, patients interested in this particular cosmetic treatment can take comfort in the fact that the results will not be permanent–though this also means that if they do enjoy the effects, they will have to come in for occasional renewal sessions.
Xeomin is a clinically proved, FDA-approved frown line injectable treatment.
Frown lines form when facial expressions are made as the muscle under the skin contracts.
According to Merz, the manufacturer of Xeomin, as your skin ages, these repeated expressions cause lasting frown lines.
Neurotoxins, such as Botox, Dysport or Xeomin, are prescription medications that block the release of chemicals that cause these muscle contractions so frown lines are softened.
