Botox® / Dysport® / Xeomin®

Botox Injections Fort Lauderdale FLWhat is Botox®?

Botox® Cosmetic is approved by the FDA for the treatment of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. Botox® is a paralytic medication that blocks the nerve transmissions to the muscles.

How does Botox® work?

Botox® reduces the muscle activity that causes wrinkles of the face. After treatments, the muscles relax and the overlying skin becomes smooth and unwrinkled. Botox® treatments soften the appearance of wrinkles, producing a natural youthful contour of the face. A topical cream can be used to minimize pain and discomfort before and after the treatment.

Dysport® is also approved by the FDA for the treatment of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. Dysport® can be used as an alternative to Botox treatments. Like Botox®, Dysport® is a minimally invasive treatment that blocks the nerve transmissions to the muscles of the face. This will reduce the muscle activity that causes wrinkles of the face.

Xeomin® is typically injected into muscles in between the eyebrows to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines.
