Improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Neurotoxin injections are used as an aesthetic treatment to improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. These treatments are most commonly used to correct horizontal lines across the forehead and the perpendicular frown lines between eyebrows (also called “The Elevens”), as well as laugh lines and lip lines.
Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin® are all brand-name medications used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. They work by relaxing the muscles in the face, which causes the skin to smooth out over time. Botox is the most popular of these medications, but they all have similar effects.
These injectable neuromodulators temporarily alter the nerve impulses of targeted muscles. By altering these nerve impulses, it’s possible to reduce or eliminate contraction of the muscle and therefore minimize the induced wrinkling in the skin.
The same active ingredient, Botulinum Toxin A, is used by each brand in a slightly different formula, but all of them operate in the same way. Blocking the nerve signals sent by the targeted muscles results in a decrease of the muscle movements and a decrease in skin folds that cause wrinkles.
Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are also highly effective in treating crow’s feet, nasal squint lines, and lines around the neck, and may be used for eyebrow lifts. In some cases, this class of injectable cosmetic treatments can be prescribed to treat migraines or even excessive underarm sweating.
Quality Wrinkle Treatment in Buford
The highly-skilled team at Advanced Regenerative Therapy is well-trained in the art of injectables. When properly administered, the effects of Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are confined to the targeted injection area and do not affect the surrounding areas or migrate around the body.
Small needle injections of the neurotoxin are placed in the targeted muscle groups with the entire procedure taking less than 10 minutes. Results last on average for about 3 months and repeat procedures enhance long term effects.
These treatments are the most popular anti-aging technique, worldwide. By limiting the severity and frequency of contraction-induced wrinkles, it’s possible to prevent deeper lines from developing in the long term.
