Many wrinkles are actually creases that have been worn into the skin by making the same expression thousands of times. These are called “expression lines” or wrinkles of motion. These wrinkles can add years to our appearance, often making us look angry, tired or unconfident when we are not.
Botox treatments provide a safe, non-surgical alternative for the reduction of frown lines, forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, laugh lines, vertical neck lines, fine lip lines, and chin creases.
Botox has been used safely and effectively for over twenty-five years in adults to treat many medical conditions where overactive muscles require relaxation.
4 Types of Botox Treatments
Botox® (onabotulinumtoxinA) Cosmetic the first botulinum toxin A treatment approved for the treatment of glabellar lines (frown lines between the eyebrows) by the FDA in 2002. In 2013, Botox® Cosmetic received a second aesthetic indication for lateral canthal lines (ie. severe crow’s feet) and in 2017, Botox® Cosmetic received a third aesthetic indication for moderate to severe forehead lines in adults.
Botox® is frequently used to control hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) of the axillae (armpits) and palms, and occasionally other parts of the body. About one person in 100 has a serious problem with excessive sweating in these areas. This usually starts in childhood or adolescence. This kind of excess sweating is caused by a reflex reaction of the nervous system and is beyond voluntary control. Half of patients report that after one Botox® treatment they are free of excessive sweating for more than 7 months, and more than one third of patients are still free of excess sweating after one year.
Dysport® (abobotulinumtoxinA) is the second botulinum toxin A treatment approved for the treatment of glabellar lines (frown lines between the eyebrows) by the FDA in 2009.
Xeomin® (incobotulinumtoxinA) is the third botulinum toxin A treatment approved for the aesthetic treatment of glabellar lines (frown lines between the eyebrows) by the FDA in 2011. Xeomin® has been available nationwide since 2013.
Jeuveau™ (prabotulinumtoxinA-xvfs) by Evolus is the first aesthetic-only neurotoxin that is FDA approved for the temporary improvement of moderate to severe glabellar lines in adults. Jeuveau™ is now available nationwide at physician offices since May 2019.
What is Botox?
Botox does not affect the nerves responsible for sensation, so there is no numbness in the treated areas.
How does Botox work?
Over time, the treated muscles stay relaxed and you will see your current wrinkles diminish over time and you can prevent new lines from forming, as well.
What is a Botox treatment like?
A small amount of discomfort may be felt when the needle is inserted but it disappears within seconds. On a rare occasion a tiny bruise may occur, but this can be hidden with concealer and resolves in a few days.
