Many patients who are showing early signs of facial aging and who desire subtle improvement in their look or a softening of age-related wrinkles are excellent candidates for neurotoxin therapy.
BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport and Xeomin are the US FDA-approved neurotoxins that act to block the nerve signals causing muscle contraction. Minute quantities are meticulously injected into specific facial muscles, resulting in major improvement of moderate to severe frown and laugh lines.
At Bel-Art Aesthetics, Nurse Zelia has advanced training in artistic as well as medical applications of neurotoxin injections to significantly improve
frown lines and wrinkling between the eyebrows, across the forehead, at the crow’s feet areas and in several other regions of the lower face and neck.
The injections can also be strategically placed
to sculpt the outer third of the eyebrow, resulting in a non-surgical “brow lift” and
achieving a more youthful appearance without having to undergo a surgical procedure.
Men can also benefit from such treatment, although
their thicker and stronger facial musculature may require higher doses.
An additional use for Botox® cosmetic is for the treatment of Migraines.
Other uses include treatment of hyperhidrosis (excessive underarm sweating) to alleviate social embarrassment as well as multiple daily shirt/blouse changes.
Botox® injections can give relief of these symptoms, & results may last as long as one year.
Specific prices available during 30 minute complimentary consultation.
Botox® Cosmetic is injected into the muscles that cause wrinkles, temporarily reducing the activity of those muscles. The result is a reduction in the appearance of those lines. Botox® is a safe, effective, and proven method for treating fine lines and wrinkles. Its safety is well established, as it has been used therapeutically for over 20 years.
You can expect to see results in 7 days, although it maytake as long as 2 weeks. Most people can expect to enjoy the benefits for 3-4 months, and some will see results lasting up to 6 months.
Dysport® approved by the FDA in 2009, is a purified formulation that has been shown to deliver temporary improvements in moderate to severe frown lines by stopping the signal from the nerve to the muscles, ultimately resulting in a reduction of muscle activity and temporarily preventing contraction of the muscles that cause wrinkle lines.
You can expect to see results in 2 days, although it may take as long as 1 week. Most people can expect to enjoy the benefits for 3-4 months, and some will see results lasting up to 6-7 months.
Just like Botox®, Xeomin® injection blocks the signal from the nerve to the muscle. As a result, the targeted muscle cannot contract creating a smoother, fresher, and younger appearance.
Xeomin® is considered the "Naked" neurotoxin because it does not use "complexing protiens" unlike its competitors. In all other regards, Xeomin® is quite comparable to Botox®. It is administered in the same manner, uses a similar dosage and offers all of the same benefits of relieving fine lines and wrinkles at a more affordable cost. Patients can expect to see results in about one week. As soon as results appear, the effects will last anywhere from 3 to 4 months.
