Fine lines and wrinkles of the upper face can dramatically age your appearance. Frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead lines, and brow lines are all the result of stress, diminishing eyesight, smiling, sun damage, and other environmental factors. Many people find preventing wrinkles of the upper face almost impossible. BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, and Xeomin® are injectable treatments that correct the appearance of wrinkles for a smoother, more youthful appearance.
Frown lines between the eyebrows develop from stress, frowning, sun damage, and other environmental factors. BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, and XEOMIN® relax the muscles, correcting the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles between the eyebrows. They can also provide noticeable correction to forehead lines and elevate the eyebrows.
Crow's feet are wrinkles that develop around the outer edge of the eyes and are usually the result of prolonged eye strain, squinting, stress, or other habitual facial expressions. BOTOX© Cosmetic is an FDA-approved nerve inhibitor that allows the muscles around the eyes to relax, softening the appearance of crow’s feet.
As nerve inhibitors, BOTOX®, Dysport®, and XEOMIN® can help correct conditions other than facial wrinkles. These injectables can be used to treat:
A: A nerve inhibitor stops a muscle from receiving a stimulating signal, paralyzing it and preventing it from contracting. Muscle contraction is what causes wrinkles to develop. When the muscles relax, wrinkles soften.
A: BOTOX© Cosmetic, Dysport©, and XEOMIN© are FDA-approved for patients 18 years of age older. Typically, patients seeking BOTOX© Cosmetic, Dysport©, and XEOMIN© treatments are over 35 years of age and have mild to moderate wrinkles of the upper face.
A: All BOTOX© Cosmetic, Dysport©, and XEOMIN© treatments are performed in our medical office. This helps ensure patient safety, comfort, and confidence.
