Struggling With Wrinkles?

Generally, wrinkles and fine lines occur due to a gradual loss of collagen and elastin production over time. As we lose these two vital proteins, our skin begins to loosen and we become more aware of our age. Additionally, frequent muscle movements can greatly exacerbate the appearance of these wrinkles, thus accelerating the process. The more we frown, furrow our brows, and even smile, the more noticeable these wrinkles become. Those who are tired of looking at their lines and wrinkles can find a quick and easy treatment in our selection of BOTOX, Dysport and Xeomin injectables.

Xeomin vs BOTOX vs Dysport

All three neuromodulators are very similar, though each may cause a slightly different response. Dysport is known to be more diffusive with a more even distribution, which is ideal for correcting crow’s feet. While BOTOX, Xeomin, and Dysport can be used interchangeably, your provider will discuss their recommendation for you and their reasons for choosing one over the other. When administered properly, these treatments’ effects are confined to the injection zone and do not affect the surrounding areas or travel around the body, as commonly feared. These treatments also prevent the formation of deeper lines in the future by reducing contraction-induced wrinkles. This is the main reason why younger people are getting such treatments: Used as a preventative measure, they are an effective anti-aging strategy.  

Wrinkle Treatments with Neuromodulators

The neuromodulator formula is comprised of a natural neurotoxin called botulinum. When injected in small doses, this compound causes temporary muscle paralysis at the injection site. Therefore, by administering neuromodulators into certain areas of the face, Dr. Pontius can prevent muscle movement and effectively halt the signs of aging. When you come in for a visit, our Dr. Pontius will take the time to assess your facial structure and recommend a course of injections best suited for your features. Afterward, the actual injection procedure can take as little as five minutes. When she’s done, no bed rest or downtime will be required and you will be able to go home straight away. Best of all, your results will look natural, allowing you to maintain discretion.

Results of Neuromodulator Injections

Results from BOTOX Cosmetic, Dysport, and Xeomin can usually be seen about 3-7 days after treatment.* The paralysis caused by typically lasts for 3-4 months afterward, but some patients have reported lasting results for up to six months.* While active, the formula will prevent excessive muscle movement and leave your skin completely wrinkle-free.* You will look radiant for the duration of the treatment and are welcome to come in for subsequent appointments to keep your new look going.
