Neurotoxins are an injectable treatment designed to inhibit specific muscles from contracting to smooth the skin and achieve a more youthful appearance. Repeated muscle contractions over time can result in unwanted facial lines which add years to your complexion. Neurotoxins help block nerve signals from temporarily causing muscle contractions to reverse signs of aging for a naturally smoother, younger-looking appearance.
What are Neurotoxins?
Neurotoxins are a type of injectable that temporarily stops certain muscles from contracting to achieve a smoother complexion. Because repeated muscle contractions can cause unwanted facial lines and wrinkles, neurotoxins are a safe and effective solution to relax specific muscles to diminish signs of aging.
There are several types of neurotoxins that each specialize in smoothening different areas of the face. At Lamese Laser and Aesthetics, we offer Botox and Dysport as our neurotoxin treatment options. Both Botox and Dysport help smoothen and soften different areas of the face for a naturally younger-looking complexion.
What is Botox?
Botox is a type of neurotoxin that effortlessly erases facial lines and wrinkles in a matter of minutes. Botox injections are a versatile treatment that can be used in various parts of the face to reduce forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet. Botox injections can also be used in a lip flip procedure to help make your upper lip appear naturally fuller and poutier.
Botox treatments are quick at conveniently addressing patients’ stubborn facial lines with zero downtime required. Since Botox is a type of neurotoxin, patients experience temporary results for about 4 months before the “blocking” effect begins to naturally wear off. Additional treatments are recommended about every 4 months to maintain your desired results.
What is Dysport?
Dysport is a type of neurotoxin that specifically reduces moderate to severe frown lines between your eyebrows, otherwise known as glabellar lines. Glabellar lines form from repeated muscle contractions between your eyebrows which are caused by frowning and squinting. Dysport works to naturally smoothen the appearance of glabellar lines by temporarily relaxing these affected muscles between your brows to achieve a younger complexion.
Using one injection, Dysport is injected into 5 different areas around the forehead and eyebrows to help relax the muscles and soften the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles between your brows to achieve a more youthful appearance.
What Do Neurotoxins Treat?
Neurotoxins visibly reduce signs of aging by diminishing facial lines and wrinkles for smoother, younger-looking skin. Each neurotoxin option specializes in treating specific skin concerns on varying parts of the face.
Botox can be used to relax a variety of muscles in the face from your forehead to your lips and more. Botox injections are commonly used to treat:
Dysport is designed to specifically treat moderate to severe glabellar lines (facial lines between your eyebrows) only. Dysport does not treat other facial lines and wrinkles on the face.
