Wrinkles and fine lines are a major downside of the aging process. They often form far earlier than we expect, making us look angrier or more tired than we feel. If you’re tired of facial creases, botulinum toxins may be just what you need. These products have helped countless people regain fresher, brighter complexions and live more meaningful lives. Here at Allure Enhancement Center, we encourage you to learn more about botulinum toxins and what they may be able to do for you.
What are Botulinum Toxins?
Botulinum toxins are safe injectable products that help to diminish the appearance of dynamic wrinkles in the face. They are purified protein serums that act as neuromodulators, temporarily blocking the brain signals that command certain facial muscles to contract. When muscle contraction ceases, so do the wrinkles that age the face prematurely.
What are My Options?
At our clinic we offer four main products. They are:
BOTOX® – This is the best-known member of the botulinum family, a time-honored household name. BOTOX® most commonly targets crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines. Results should become apparent within approximately 72 hours and last for a few months.
Dysport® – This product is most often used to mitigate the appearance of frown lines, which form between the brows. Dysport® has an onset of roughly 24 to 48 hours and a smaller general unit size than BOTOX®. One dose can last up to four months.
Xeomin® – This option is usually used for forehead bands, frown lines, and contains no additives of any kind. It has an onset of about four days.
Jeuveau® – This product exclusively tackles frown lines, also known as glabellar lines or ‘the elevens.’
What Can I Expect?
If deemed eligible for botulinum toxin treatment, you will be welcomed in for your first session. During the process, a trained professional prepares a dose of the serum and injects it strategically into the area or areas of concern. Shortly after your session, the serum will begin to take effect. No downtime is associated with these treatments, and multiple sessions may be necessary to maintain the ultimate effect.
Is It Right for Me?
Anyone seeking to decrease the severity of facial wrinkles may qualify for botulinum toxins. It is important to harbor realistic expectations in terms of what this treatment can accomplish, though a positive outlook is always helpful. The best way to determine your candidacy for botulinum toxins, and which might be best for you, is to come into our office for a consultation.
