What is Botox®, and how does it work?
Botox Cosmetic® is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the U.S.
Botox works by blocking the nerve signals, temporarily weakening the muscles in the injected area, and having the effect of relaxing wrinkles and lines. This is usually effective for 3-4 months.It’s FDA-approved for treating crow’s feet (or laugh lines) around the eyes, the creases between the brows (the 11’s) and forehead lines. Botox® Cosmetic injections are a safe way to temporarily reduce the appearance of fine lines around the eyes and forehead. Botox® Cosmetic is an FDA-approved substance, originally approved as a medical treatment to control excessive contraction of the muscles around the eyes. Because the patients receiving Botox® Cosmetic for that purpose were experiencing smoother skin and less wrinkling around the eyes, it was discovered that a lower dose of the chemical might be used for cosmetic purposes.
What to Expect with Botox Treatment
What is Jeuveau?
Jeuveau is a botulinum toxin type A injection used in the treatment of wrinkles. It’s also sometimes called the new Botox because it’s a new version of the same active ingredient used in original Botox Cosmetic injections, and can be a good alternative to Botox.
It works very similarly to Botox. Jeuveau by Evolus is now FDA approved neurotoxin for the temporary improvement of moderate to severe glabellar lines in adults, and is a great choice if you are looking for a more youthful appearance. Jeuveau can also treat forehead lines, crow’s feet, and wrinkles around the mouth.
What is Xeomin?
XEOMIN® was developed by Merz Aesthetics and is one of the latest treatments for wrinkle reduction on the market today. XEOMIN (incobotulinumtoxinA) has been approved by the FDA for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines (frown lines between the eyebrows) in adult patients. It works very similarly to Botox
