Over time repeated facial movements will etch lines into the skin, just like when paper is folded over and over. In our younger years, the skin will bounce back into place. But as we age, our collagen and elastin dissipates over time, and the lines that remain can become deeper. Anti-aging treatments such as Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin® are wrinkle smoothing injections and were developed to minimize the amount of facial muscle movement, thereby helping to prevent wrinkle formation so that the skin looks more youthful and refreshed.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is the trade name for a purified protein that, when injected under the skin in very small doses, is highly successful in diminishing horizontal forehead creases, crow's feet lines around the eyes, and vertical frown lines between the eyes. At Ageless Aesthetics MediSpa we commonly combine BOTOX® Cosmetic injections with other procedures such as facial fillers and Platelet Rich Fibrin. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a non-surgical treatment that takes approximately 15 minutes for our nurses to treat your area of concern after you both have agreed on your treatment. It can take up to 2 weeks for BOTOX® Cosmetic to take full effect. The results will typically last 3 to 4 months.
There is an alternative way to treat frown lines and other dynamic wrinkles at Ageless Aesthetics MediSpa: Dysport®. Formulated with the same purified protein as BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport® is a wonderful, exciting injectable alternative that has been FDA cleared to treat fine lines and wrinkles.
Dysport® was FDA approved in 2009 and has been used in Europe since 1991. The results and the cost are extremely comparable. As we age the first place we notice it is in the face. The first area of concern is usually the wrinkles in the forehead. There are non-surgical options for the reduction of wrinkles in the forehead, the area between the eyebrows, and the crows around the eyes. Dysport® has a quick effect, you will typically see the results of your treatment within 5 - 7 days, which will last 3-4 months depending on the area injected. If you've been considering BOTOX® Cosmetic or another treatment to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, maybe it's time to try Dysport®.
You have heard of BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport®, but you may not know about the newest FDA-cleared member of the dynamic wrinkle-fighting team - Xeomin®. Xeomin® is a Botulinum Toxin A product that works similarly to BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® but can create longer-lasting results. Xeomin® treatment effects are typically visible within 3-5 days. After years of squinting, laughing, frowning, smoking, and worrying, the skin around the eyes and the forehead will often develop fine lines and deep wrinkles called “expression lines”. A frequent concern is that these fine lines and deep wrinkles can often make you look older, tired, or stressed. It takes only a few minutes for our nurses to administer BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, & Xeomin®, but the resulting wrinkle reductions last for months. For these reasons, it is one of the most sought-after non-surgical procedures that our MediSpa offers.
The botulinum injections help the injected muscles to “relax” so that they no longer contract and cause fine lines and deep wrinkles to form. BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, & Xeomin® also block nerve impulses of the tiny facial muscles that are directly related to expression lines. After treatment, the skin overlying the treated area becomes smooth and wrinkle-free. The muscles that went untreated will contract as usual and leave normal facial expressions unaffected.
The effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, & Xeomin® usually last 3 to 4 months, and gradually fade. Following several treatments of BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, & Xeomin® the results may last up to 4-6 months or longer on some patients.
BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, & Xeomin® are FDA approved and have been used as a safe, successful treatment by tens of thousands of patients worldwide to treat ophthalmological and neurological disorders. BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, & Xeomin® have been safely used to treat hyperfunctional facial lines. Anyone who has any autoimmune diseases is receiving immunotherapy, or has allergies to eggs should not have BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, & Xeomin® treatments.
Before BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, & Xeomin® the patient should consider stopping all medications (with physician approval), vitamins, and herbal remedies that thin the blood. Do not ingest alcohol, anti-inflammatory medications, garlic, turmeric, fish oils, and omegas for one week leading up to and after your treatment. Stopping these medications for 3 -5 days prior to and after treatment will help to significantly reduce any risks of bruising which may occur at the injection sites.
After BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, & Xeomin®treatment, the patient should stay upright and refrain from massaging the treated area for four hours. No exercise for 24 hours, allowing the product to become stable in the muscles it has been injected into. For the first 24 hours, the patient should be careful not to apply pressure to the area(s) treated and be particularly careful while sleeping.
