Botox Cosmetic®, Dysport®, Xeomin®, and Jeuveaux® are an FDA approved highly purified protein that is produced by the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. By blocking nerve impulses to the tiny muscles that cause facial expression lines and wrinkles, this protein prevents their contraction and relaxes them.
The treatment can reverse dynamic wrinkles, such as crow's feet, frown lines, worry lines, laugh lines, and neck bands, reversing visible signs of aging. Depending on the individual, the results can be visualized within 5-10 days after treatment. It peaks in 2-4 weeks and will last for 3-6 months.
Neurotoxins are not a replacement for fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm, or Radiesse in the treatment of deep static wrinkles. The two products are complementary and their simultaneous use results in a more smooth, relaxed, and younger appearance.
Hyperhidrosis (Excessive sweating) is a condition which in certain individuals can cause a very uncomfortable and possibly embarrassing situation where it may be difficult to control sweating using typical antiperspirants and powders. These are typically seen in the axillae (under arms) as well as the palms. Neurotoxins such as Botox can be used to reduce the amount of sweat produced by blocking the ability of the sweat gland from squeezing out its contents.
