No one enjoys the signs of aging. Fine lines, wrinkles, folds, and skin laxity can all become evident on the face. Instead of considering expensive, invasive plastic surgery such as a face-lift, patients are now turning to their dermatologists for more affordable, less invasive solutions. At Seriously Skin, we provide patients with a wide variety of injectables, including neuromodulators that use botulinum toxin type A to relax muscle contractions and reduce folds and wrinkles on the upper third of the face. The three most popular brands of wrinkle removers are Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin.
All of these injectables are used to reduce wrinkles and folds on the forehead and between the eyebrows. They are made from a medication called botulinum toxin type A, which can reduce muscle contractions. When injected into the muscles of the upper face, they can smooth the skin and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
These injectables are FDA approved and can help patients safely achieve a more youthful appearance. Patients can schedule a visit with the team at Seriously Skin to determine which neuromodulator best suits their specific needs, lifestyle, and budget. Then, injections are made in targeted areas of the face for the best results. Patients may feel minimal discomfort when the needle is inserted, but it is short term.
There are no serious side effects associated with neuromodulators such as Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin. These injectables have been used for years some for decades and they have been shown to be extremely safe and beneficial.
The cost of treatment varies, depending on the number of injections and the amount needed for effective results. Patients may receive a quote after they have undergone evaluation and examination with one of our cosmetic dermatologists at Seriously Skin.
Neuromodulators can be used in conjunction with other injectables such as collagen stimulators and dermal fillers. Sometimes, using a combination of treatments on various areas of the face can provide patients with a full “liquid facelift” in just one visit. Patients can discuss the possibilities available to them with a consultation at Seriously Skin.
