Aging is simply a fact of life and its effects happen to everyone. However, there is a way to help you look younger, improve your confidence levels, and treat your unwanted wrinkles and fine lines with Botox, Xeomin and Dysport. But what are these treatments and how can they benefit you? Find out the answer to this question and more with your dermatologists Dr. Kevin Dawson, Dr. Douglas Chun and Dr. Sarah Grekin at Dawson Dermatology in Honolulu, HI.
What are Botox and Dysport?
Botox, Xeomin and Dysport are dermatological treatments which relax the facial muscles under the skin, smoothing its appearance and preventing its movement. By stopping the muscles from moving, this actually prevents new wrinkles from forming as the skin cannot fold or crease to cause them. Botox, Xeomin and Dysport are placed into the facial muscles around the forehead or eyes.
Which should I choose: Botox, Xeomin or Dysport?
Botox, Xeomin and Dysport are similar treatments achieve the same goal. They use the same type of chemical to treat the muscles and prevent their movement. All treatments have a high safety rating and are similar in price. All treatments also require touch-up injections every three to four months. Most studies have shown that their effects are almost identical. Consulting with your dermatologist is the best way to come to determine which treatment is best for your skin.
Am I a candidate for Botox or Dysport treatments?
Candidates for either treatment should be in good general health with concerns over their facial skin’s appearance. These concerns often include unwanted fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet) or forehead. Candidates for these treatments should have realistic expectations for their results and understand that patients require additional touch-up treatments every three to four months.
