As we age, fine lines and wrinkles can appear on our faces and cause us to look sad, tired, or even angry. Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are the only three FDA- approved neurotoxin treatments for the temporary reduction of the appearance of these facial lines and wrinkles. These safe and effective injections work to block the nerve signals that cause the facial muscles to contract, creating a smoother, more rested, and relaxed appearance. These injections can be used to treat the wrinkles we commonly see between the eyebrows, forehead creases, crows feet around the eyes, and even small lip lines and to relax vertical neck bands. Botox can also be used to reduce underarm perspiration for 6-12 months.
Ideal Candidates for Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are patients who wish to:
Erase a tired or angry appearance cause by wrinkles between the brows
Eliminate deep forehead lines
Improve the appearance of Crow’s feet
Correct any facial asymmetries of the eyes or face
Temporarily reduce underarm perspiration
About the Procedure
Neurotoxin injections are performed in the office setting, as an outpatient procedure. Each treatment can be completed in 15-30 minutes and requires no downtime. Effects can be seen within 7-10 days and can last anywhere from 3-4 months for facial injections and 6-12 months for underarm injections.
Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Niki Christopoulos personally performs all her injections after a detailed facial analysis and consultation.
