Botulinum neuro modulator (AKA Botox Cosmetic®, Xeomin ™, or Dysport ™) is one of the most popular procedures available. It works beautifully for the right areas when performed by the right Botox professional. Healthpoint Laser Clinic is proud to team up with Dr. Kay-Pfau (aka Dr. Kay), MD, CCFP.
Botox® works its best magic on deep wrinkles that are most commonly found on the forehead, between the eyebrows, the neck, and crow’s feet.
A very small amount of the solution is injected directly into the problem area muscles. Over the next 3 – 5 days the muscle weakens, and by day 10, dramatic softening of the area is visibly noticeable. If you visit a skilled physician, a small bruise (from the needle) is generally the only immediate side effect although, it’s not very common.
The best and worst thing about Botox® and other fillers is that they are temporary. If you’re not comfortable with the results, Botox® generally wears off in about 3 months. If you like the results, you can appreciate that you only need to get it done just a few times a year. It is common for people who regularly receive Botox® to extend the interval between treatments to up to 6 months.
Botox® is not only a wrinkle miracle but 80% of those who have received the treatment for forehead wrinkles reported a dramatic improvement in migraine headaches. In one study, more than 50% of the study participants stopped having any headaches for three months or longer! You could look and FEEL better in the same visit.
It’s exciting to think of what other medicinal purposes Botox® may be able to offer in the future.
There are different options such as Botox Cosmetic®, Xeomin™, Dysport™ and Jeuveau™ . Some people have better or faster results with one and not the others. Our experts will help determine what works best for you and provide the necessary information and treatments.
