Wrinkle Relaxers Sherman Oaks

Nowadays, the most commonly used cosmetic tools for rejuvenation and enhancement are muscle-relaxing proteins, also called neuromodulators. While Botox was the first FDA-approved brand, Daxxify, Dysport, Jeuveau, and Xeomin, 3 other similar products from different companies soon joined the market. They each approximate 3-4 months of longevity when used in the recommended dosage, except for Daxxify which tested its results based on double dosage and hence demonstrated longer longevity. Based on our clinical experience, however, we have found that each patient can respond differently with varying longevity to the different brands. Therefore, a more personalized approach is always recommended.

 

At Cosmetic Injectables Center, we advocate for and focus on approaching each patient in a customized manner. Our trained practitioners are committed to understanding your specific needs and desires to provide personalized treatment plans resulting in natural-looking results.  We prioritize client satisfaction and guarantee that every client receives the highest level of care. At Cosmetic Injectables Center, Dr. Soleiman and her team are here to help you achieve your cosmetic goals using the following wrinkle relaxers:

Botox, Dysport, Xeomin Vials For Cosmetic Treatment

Which areas can be treated with Botox?

Botox Cosmetic and Dysport are FDA approved purified proteins that are used to relax the facial muscles that cause frown lines. They can also be used off-label to lift brows, and decrease forehead lines, next to the eyes (crow’s feet), and on the nose (bunny lines). Other more advanced techniques can also be performed to decrease creases on lips, upturn corners of lips, decrease size of large masseters, and lift jowls to give the appearance of a mini face lift.

  • Crow’s feet (lines around the eyes), and
  • Forehead lines (horizontal lines in the forehead.)

What’s the difference between Botox and Fillers?

Botox and other neuromodulators relax muscles. As such, the weakened muscles no longer contract and don’t crinkle the skin into wrinkles. Fillers on the other hand “fill” the area under the skin. By volumizing a deflated or underdeveloped area, we can contour the face to decrease the shadows that make us look tired, lift the skin back up to its original position, and rejuvenate a droopy or flat structure.

Which product is right for me?

There’s no wrong or right choice and what worked for your friend might not have the same result for you. The only way to find out which product is best for you is to receive the comparable dose of each product in the same area by the same injector and note the result and longevity of each product. At our office, we charge the same price for the comparable dose used with each product. Let us know if you would like to try the different brands at each visit and decide for yourself which you like best!

Botox

(onabotulinumtoxin A) by Allergan, same company that makes Juederm, Voluma, and Latisse) first earned Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for medical use in 1989. It has since received cosmetic FDA approval for use in frown lines (glabellar lines) and crow’s feet (peri-orbital rhytids).

Onset of results is usually about 7-10 days after injection into targeted muscles. When used in proper dosing recommended by the company (6 injection sites containing 20 units of Botox for frown lines, 3 injection sites containing 24 units of Dysport for crow’s feet), the duration of results usually lasts about 3-4 months. Some patients have more sensitive muscles and respond to fewer units, while others such as most men may require higher doses to achieve the same results.

Dysport

(onabotulinumtoxin A) by Allergan (the same company that makes Juederm, Voluma, and Latisse) first earned Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for medical use in 1989. It has since received cosmetic FDA approval for use in frown lines (glabellar lines) and crow’s feet (peri-orbital rhytids).

Onset of results is usually about 7-10 days after injection into targeted muscles. When used in proper dosing recommended by the company (6 injection sites containing 20 units of Botox for frown lines, 3 injection sites containing 24 units of Dysport for crow’s feet), the duration of results usually lasts about 3-4 months. Some patients have more sensitive muscles and respond to fewer units, while others such as most men may require higher doses to achieve the same results.

Xeomin

(incobotulinumtoxin A) by Merz (same company that makes Radiesse and Belotero) was approved by the FDA in 2010. Its units of measurement are exactly like Botox. In other words, one unit of Xeomin is equivalent in effect to one unit of Botox. Xeoman has been FDA approved for use in the glabellar region (frown lines.) The only significant differences with Botox are that it does not need refrigeration and that it does not have the extra proteins that Botox carries. Some believe that Xeomin is a more purified version of Botox and is less likely to cause antibody formation in the body, while others believe that the extra protein within Botox makes Botox last longer. There are no studies to verify either theory at this time. Another key element with Xeomin is that it should be placed upside down for 1 to 2 minutes after reconstitution to ensure that all of the particles in the top of the vial also dissolve into the solution. Botox does not require this as all of its product is at the bottom of the vial.
