Whenever you laugh, frown, concentrate or squint into the sun, your facial muscles contract and your skin creases. As you get older your skin loses its elasticity and those creases deepen into lines that become permanently etched on your face. Vein Institute and Medi Spa offers three different medications to treat these lines; Botox Cosmetic, Dysport and Xeomin. These medications can smooth out pesky lines, restoring a more youthful, less stressed expression to your face. The areas commonly treated include: crow’s feet, frown lines, forehead lines and lines on the neck. Additionally, a brow lift is available. This can subtly raise the eyebrows to provide a rejuvenated, more youthful look.
Consideration will be taken on the look you are trying to achieve, whether that be eliminating your frown lines or retaining some movement for a more natural look.
Botox Cosmetic was FDA approved in 2002. Since then over 11.8 million Botox Cosmetic treatments have been performed in the United States. You will see your lines soften in two weeks after treatment. Botox is also FDA approved for treatment of excessive underarm sweating. It is a proven procedure for severe underarm sweating when antiperspirants fail!
