Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin Injections
Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are popular nonsurgical, injectable treatments performed to correct horizontal lines across the forehead, perpendicular frown lines between the brows (known as “The Elevens”), crow’s feet, nasal squint lines, and lines around the neck. These wrinkles are caused by the repeated expressions we make.
With little to no recovery time, the injections block the nerve impulses of the injected muscles to temporarily paralyze the muscle movements that cause wrinkles. In addition, a “brow lift” effect can also be achieved by this simple procedure.
Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are FDA-approved injectable neuromodulators that accomplish this effect. Each brand has a slightly different formulation of the same substance (Botulinum Toxin A) and works in the same way but with subtle differences in outcomes. Results are temporary, typically lasting three to four months. While there may be some skin redness after the procedure, there is no downtime. The procedure itself usually takes under 30 minutes.
When choosing a provider for injectable treatments, you should give your decision the same level of care and scrutiny you would for a surgical cosmetic procedure. Whether you see a Kelsey-Seybold cosmetic surgeon or dermatologist for your injectable procedure, they will carefully evaluate your needs to determine what treatment, or combination of treatments, will achieve the look you want. Our experienced, highly skilled providers deliver natural looking skin rejuvenation in a safe, medical environment.
