Botox® treatment for aging, bruxism, or excessive sweating
Common brands such as Botox®, Jeuveau, Xeomin, and Dysport are all Botulinum Toxin Type A injectables. All of these products work in the same manner to relax muscles, though they may have slight variations at the molecular level. We work directly with patients to help them choose the product that best suits their needs.
These injectables work by diminishing muscle contractions that cause etched wrinkles and folds, sometimes called dynamic wrinkles. The goal is to soften the lines and folds while maintaining natural expressive movement. The areas often treated include frown lines between the eyes, lines along the forehead, and crow’s feet around the outer edges of the eyes. In some instances, we may also treat the lower face, bringing balance and harmony to the facial appearance and addressing the process of aging.
These injectables are a great preventative tool for preventing the formation and progression of fine lines and wrinkles throughout the face. We encourage patients to return for injections every three months to prevent additional wrinkle formation.
Botox® and other Botulinum Toxin Type A products are injections that help in treating:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Jaw clenching
- Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)
- Chronic headaches and migraines
The average procedure time is approximately 45 minutes long, and patients will want to repeat their treatments approximately every 3-4 months to maintain the achieved results. Patients are invited to ask about Botox® before and after photos to get an idea of what this treatment can do!
What about dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are another option available at Cassie Lane Aesthetics. Patients are welcome to ask about the use of dermal fillers instead of or in addition to Botox® injections.
