BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport ®, Xeomin®, Jeuveau®
BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport ®, Xeomin®, Jeuveau® are all botulinum toxins that are used to soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles that form and deepen with expression. The most common areas treated with these neuromodulators are horizontal forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet. Botulinum toxins function by blocking the nerve signals that trigger the muscle contraction. By minimizing muscle movement, facial expressions are softened, and the resulting wrinkles are not reinforced. Botulinum toxin injections typically take 3-7 days to take effect and last for 3-4 months. These injectables can also be used to treat migraines, teeth grinding, and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).
