Botox Treatment NYCSmiling, frowning, squinting, and other facial expressions occur naturally. We rarely think about the multitude of tiny muscles that power them. However, we use those muscles many times a day. After years of repetitive movement, they become rigid, causing lines and wrinkles in the overlying skin.
Our New York dermatology practice offers Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin treatments to smooth away those lines and wrinkles by gently softening the underlying muscles. These products have slightly different formulas, though the active ingredients are all variations of Botulinum toxin. Known as neuromodulators, these products reduce the excess nerve impulses that cause perpetual muscle rigidity.
BotoxBotox Cosmetic was the first product of its kind on the market, and it remains the best-known brand. It is FDA approved for reducing both crow’s feet and frown lines. Formulated with onabotulinumtoxinA Botox has helped millions of people around the world turn back the clock.
DysportDysport is designed to fight frown lines without looking overdone. It is FDA approved, and proven to smooth lines between the brows (glabellar lines). It is formulated with abobotulinumtoxinA, and has an excellent record of safety and effectiveness.
XeominThe latest frown line treatment on the market, Xeomin was approved by the FDA in 2010. It has been clinically tested and proven effective for the reduction of moderate to severe frown lines. The active ingredient in this formula is incobotulinumtoxinA.
Choosing the right productMany patients ask which product is better. In most instances, if administered properly, they will achieve the same or very similar results. Because each body in unique, some people seem to respond better to a certain formula.
