Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are cosmetic injections approved by the FDA for reduction and improvement of wrinkles formed by repeated expressions, such as the frown lines between the brows, Crow’s feet on the sides of the eyes, and horizontal forehead lines.
Frown lines, also known as glabellar lines or “angry 11’s” are vertical lines between the eyebrows that occur due to the contraction of two major muscles between the eyebrows. As age progresses, these glabellar lines may appear in some individuals even at rest, portraying an angry or tired expression. This impacts the facial appearance of the individual.
These dynamic lines can be significantly reduced by injecting small doses of Botox into the muscles at various points. The whole procedure usually takes about 10 minutes, and you may immediately resume normal activities. The improvement in lines is visible within a few days of the Botox cosmetic injections and the improvement typically last three to four months.
Botox, Dysport and Xeomin can also be used to smooth “bunny lines” that occur on the sides of the nose when you scrunch it, upturn the corners of the mouth, improve dimpling of the chin, lessen vertical “smoker’s lines” around the lip, and improve a gummy smile.
Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are popular procedures due to the impressive cosmetic result, minimal discomfort, and ease of treatment. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Norton today.
