Neurotoxins: What are Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin?
Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are injectable treatments that are used to temporarily smooth out wrinkles and lines on the face. All three treatments are made from a purified protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum.
They are injected into the facial muscles using a fine needle, and the effects typically last for about 3-4 months. Hence, regular touch-ups are usually necessary to maintain the desired results.
How Neurotoxins Work
Neurotoxins like Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin work by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles and lines on the face. When injected into the muscles, they block the nerve impulses that tell the muscles to contract, resulting in a smoother, more relaxed appearance.
Areas Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin Can Be Used
Neurotoxins like Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin can be used to treat a variety of areas on the face and neck to smooth out wrinkles and lines. Some of the most common areas treated with neurotoxins include:
- Between the eyebrows: Frown lines between the eyebrows, or “11s,” are one of the most common areas treated with neurotoxins. These vertical lines can give the appearance of anger or frustration, even when you’re not feeling either emotion. Neurotoxins can help smooth out these lines, giving you a more relaxed and refreshed appearance.
- Forehead: Forehead wrinkles, or horizontal lines across the forehead, can also be treated with neurotoxins. These lines can be caused by a variety of factors, including sun exposure, genetics, and the natural aging process.
- Around the eyes: Wrinkles and lines around the eyes, also known as crow’s feet, can be a common concern for many people and tend to appear when you smile, laugh, or cry.
- Around the mouth: Wrinkles and lines around the mouth, also known as marionette lines, can be another common concern. Neurotoxins can help smooth out these lines, resulting in a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
- Masseter muscle: The masseter muscle is a large muscle in the jaw that helps with chewing and biting. Overactive masseter muscles can cause the appearance of a square or heavy jawline and can even contribute to TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder. Neurotoxins can be used to relax the masseter muscle, resulting in a slimmer, more defined jawline.
- Neck: Neck wrinkles, or “turkey neck,” can be a common concern for many people. Neurotoxins can be used to smooth out neck wrinkles, resulting in a more youthful appearance for the neck,
