Botox® Improves Skin Appearance
Everyone has unique expressions. We move our facial muscles in a repetitive way and over time those repetitive movements cause wrinkles and fine lines. When you start to experience the signs of aging, BTX-A (Botox®, Dysport or Xeomin) is available to diminish unwanted wrinkles and creases in your face.
Botox®, Dysport and Xeomin block the release of a chemical called acetylcholine, which triggers the muscle contractions that create wrinkles. BTX-A relaxes the muscles and stops them from contracting fully. Results are visible within two to seven days with results that can last anywhere from four to 12 months.
BTX-A cosmetic treatments can be used to improve:
BTX-X is used to treat many problems including migraines, stabismis, torticollis, ticks, excessive sweating, teeth grinding, difficulty swallowing or urinating, and other medical conditions and has more than 25 years of documented efficacy and safety in the aesthetic field. Generally, anyone without neurologic disease or pregnancy who has lines or wrinkles from excessive muscle activity may be good candidates for Botox®, Dysport, or Xeomin treatments.
Most patients require retreatment to remove wrinkles and lines as they begin to reappear, but after each session the wrinkles return as less severe as the muscles are trained to relax. The procedure does not require anesthesia and usually takes just a few minutes to perform. Botox®, Dysport, and Xeomin treatments can help both men and women rejuvenate and revitalize their appearance.
Most men and women considering BTX-A for the first time are concerned that there face may look "frozen" or unnatural. Dr. Clark has decades of experience with the various BTX-A formulations, and specializes in delivering a natural, soft effect that allows your facial expressions to remain intact. She analyzes each patient's unique facial characteristics, including any asymmetries, starts with low doses and offers to see patients a week or two after an area is treated for the first time so she can see how the treatment has worked, address any questions, and fine-tune future treatments.
