Botox is a diluted botulinum protein. It relaxes the muscles it is injected into in order to relax dynamic rhytides (or wrinkles that are caused by the muscle movement). There are currently a few different brands of Botox on the market. At Applied Aesthetic, we use Botox Cosmetic, Dysport and Xeomin. This treatment typically lasts between 3-4 months.
Botox is not only used to smooth out wrinkles that are already there, but also prevent those that have yet to form. A light treatment today can do wonders for your aesthetic future. Each treatment is completely customized in order to suit your unique facial structure.
What can Botox do for me?
- Smooth wrinkles on the forehead lines, between eyebrows and crow’s feet.
- Botox can also be used to create the illusion of fuller lips or “lip flip”, lift the eyebrows, correct a gummy smile, smooth out the lines around the mouth (smoker’s lines) and slim the jawline. Botox also is used to treat hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).
At Applied Aesthetic we use Dysport, Botox Cosmetic, and Xeomin based on patient preference and response.
