When will I see results after BOTOX treatment?
Within two days to two weeks, you will begin to see the smoothing effect. The improvement will continue to develop for about four weeks and lasts four to six months. Most patients are so pleased with the outcome they eagerly schedule follow-up treatment
How do facial expressions cause wrinkles?
Smiling, 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 and after years of repetitive movement, they become rigid, causing lines and wrinkles in the overlying skin.
Which product is better—BOTOX, Dysport, or Xeomin?
Many patients ask which neuromodulator is better, BOTOX, Dysport, Jeuveau or Xeomin. In most cases, if administered correctly, they will achieve the same or very similar results. As each body is unique, some people respond better to a particular formula. In the hands of an experienced board-certified dermatologist, BOTOX injections are safe and produce natural-looking results.
