Botox works best on dynamic wrinkles or folds that are caused by muscle movement. When you raise your eyebrows, frown, smile or scrunch your facial muscles you cause dynamic movement that creates wrinkles. Even lip lines are partially caused by muscle movement. Botox injections at Las Vegas Laser & Lipo will help minimize your ability to move muscles thereby softening and flattening these dynamic wrinkles.
These toxins have been used for treatment of the glabellar (“11”) lines between the brows, crow’s feet, forehead lines, lip lines, wrinkled chins, neck bands, excessive sweating in the axilla, hands and feet, plus a multitude of medical applications from headaches to cerebral palsy for years.
Botox Cosmetic® and Dysport® are a series of tiny injections to the area where the movement/wrinkles occur. Treatments take only a few minutes out of your day and are performed in the office with topical anesthesia and ice or cold air for ultimate comfort. Results will become visible in about a week and last for 3-6 months for most people.
While Botox Cosmetic® and Dysport® and now Xeomin® are FDA approved for use in the United States. There have been other forms of botulinum toxin imported into the country that can cause severe health issues. It is recommended that injections be performed in a licensed medical facility by an experienced physician or nurse injector for your safety and to guarantee you get what you pay for!
Botox can be combined with fillers for an ever better, longer lasting result is areas where you have deep skin folds due to volume loss.
