You now have four choices in how you eliminate wrinkles! BOTOX, Jeuveau, Xeomin and Dysport have very real, noticeable results, without surgery or downtime. All four are are made by different companies, but they have the similar behaviors and they eliminate wrinkles in the same basic way!
BOTOX COSMETIC (onabotulinumtoxinA) by Allergan
- Botox® is a purified protein that weakens the muscles that make wrinkles in common areas like the:
- Glabella (Between the Eyebrows)
- Nasialis Lines (Bunny Lines)
- Crow’s Feet (Smile Lines)
- Lip lines (Smoker Lines)
- Bands of the Neck & Necklace Lines
- Dimpling of the Chin
- Downward-turned mouth (DAO)
- Brow Lift
There is NO other treatment in the world like BOTOX! The procedure takes only a few minutes and is almost painless. BOTOX is injected with a fine needle into specific muscles with the tiniest of needles. It generally takes two to ten days to start taking effect, where the full "marinating phase" can sometimes take up to 3 weeks. One day you have wrinkles around your eyes and two weeks later, they are virtually gone! The longer you use BOTOX to weaken the muscles that make the wrinkles, the less often you need it. Most people need full treatments 3 to 4 treatments per year!
BOTOX for Migraines
BOTOX has been found to give relief to Migraine sufferers. Some insurance companies cover this highly effective treatment for migraines but sadly most do not, leaving migraine sufferers without support. At Vixen Aesthetics, we empathize with you! We see many clients specifically for the treatment of migraines and we are very successful in doing so.
BOTOX for Excessive Sweating
Hyperhidrosis is a disorder that that defines individuals who sweat more than the body would normally need to maintain their optimal temperature. There are two types of Hyperhydrosis:
Focal – sweating localized to one or more areas like:
Generalized – sweating that is caused by other underlying conditions that are not treated using Botox are:
- Nerve Damage
- Other Disorders of the Endocrine System
Injections with BOTOX interrupt the signal from the nerve to the sweat gland to reduce the sweating in the area that is affected. The injection is done with a very fine needle and, for treatment of the underarms, face and head, anesthesia is often not required as the procedure is virtually painless. For treatment of the hands and feet, local anesthesia is used to avoid injection discomfort.
The reduction of sweating based upon clinical study was 83% in 95% of participants. The effect of treatment can be immediate or take up to a week, with the average duration of effect after a single treatment being 7 months!
Botox has become a multipurpose medication that has many applications-both aesthetic and general health-related. Here are some other ways Botox can be used:
Used off-label, Botox can cause lower-leg muscles to atrophy a bit, which minimizes large, bulky-looking calves.
We usually associate Botox with an older generation who want to reverse wrinkles, but more young people are getting the injections to actually prevent the development of wrinkles by stopping the frowning or squinting that leads to them.
