Botox is a popular, FDA approved injectable treatment that temporarily relaxes the muscles which cause lines and wrinkles to the forehead, between the eyebrows and crow’s feet. Once the facial muscles are relaxed, fine lines and wrinkles become softer and smother for a more youthful and softer appearance.
Although introduced in the US in 2010, Xeomin has been used successfully in other countries since 2005. Like Botox, Xeomin is designed to treat brow wrinkles, crow’s feet, bunny lines, and frown lines. The active ingredient, botulinum toxin, is exactly the same as in Botox. Patients whose cosmetic results with Botox are unsatisfactory may have more success with Xeomin. Unlike Botox, Xeomin does not require refrigeration.
Dermal Fillers (most commonly referred to only as “Fillers”) are becoming more and more popular. These fillers are used to restore facial contours and diminish signs of aging as well as reducing facial lines. Dermal fillers also help with the restoration of volume and fullness. Our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat as we age which leads to our facial muscles working closer to the skins surface which leads to lines/crow’s feet becoming more predominant. Dermal Fillers are gels that are injected into the desired facial area which add temporary volume. Which Dermal Filler is right for you? Contact us today to schedule your consultation.
Polydioxanone Threads or PDO Threading involves absorbable threads that help with collagen production. PDO threads can tighten, lift, or add volume to the treated area. PDO threads tighten the skin while also lifting the skin as soon as the procedure is preformed and this helps with the production of collagen over time. It takes about 4-6 months for your skin to fully absorb the PDO threads.
