BOTOX is a non-surgical treatment that improves lines between the brows. It was the first FDA-approved neuromodulator to temporarily treat and improve moderate to severe frown lines in this area. It also FDA approved for treating crow’s feet and FDA approval for forehead lines.
When severe underarm sweating gets in the way of certain daily activities and antiperspirants haven’t worked, you may be a candidate for a BOTOX treatment for a medical condition known as hyperhidrosis. BOTOX is approved by the FDA to treat the symptoms of severe underarm sweating when medicines used on the skin (topical) do not work well enough. BOTOX is injected into the affected areas to help control this condition by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands.
Prescription Dysport is a non-surgical injection used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows—without changing the overall look of the face. The untreated facial muscles still work normally, allowing you to freely show facial expressions, such as smiling, in untreated areas.
It is understandable how one would want to know about BOTOX, Dysport and Xeomin when trying to determine which treatment is best for them. All three are effective treatments that originate from the same source bacterium, clostridium botulinum. When initially deciding on which neurotoxin to inject we recommend discussing your options with Susan during your personal consultation.
