Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin® are neurotoxins produced by the bacterium Clostridium A. Botulinum toxin that can relax the muscles on areas of the face and neck that cause fine lines and wrinkles associated with facial expressions or facial pain.
Botox is injected into different parts of the face, including; around the forehead wrinkles, crow's feet, sagging eyebrows and more to create smoother, younger and more rejuvenated-looking skin.
BOTOX Injections Work?
The different types of neurotoxins in BOTOX injections work by blocking the signal sent from your nerves to your muscles that prompts them to contract.
When injected into specific treatment regions it prevents the signal from reaching the muscle, preventing it from moving and subsequently allowing the region to relax and/or the fine lines in the region to soften.
BENEFITS OF BOTOX Injections
Stop Excessive Sweating
Smooth Fine Lines
Reduce Effects of Aging
Botox®, Dysport® & Xeomin®
Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin® all carry the same primary active ingredient, Botulinum toxin type A. When compared in studies, each type of neurotoxin has produced similar results and lasted a similar duration. They are all deemed to be safe and effective.
Each type of neurotoxin is developed by different manufacturers which yields differences in cost and formula. Alongside your injector, a decision will be made as to which neurotoxin will be used to fit your individual needs, budget, and goals.
Should You Get
In our youth, the elasticity of our skin is at its peak, leaving us with a bright and fresh appearance. At this age, minimal fine lines are often present. As the aging process begins to take affect as we mature, static lines form that are visible on the surface of the skin, even when you aren’t forming facial expressions or speaking. These static lines often form on the forehead, around the eyes (crow’s feet), between the eyebrows (frown lines), and around the mouth.
Treatment with Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin® can cause your facial expression lines or wrinkles to become less noticeable or essentially disappear. Botox is diluted to a very controlled solution and when injected into the muscles with a very thin needle, it is almost painless. The procedure takes about 15-20 minutes, and the results can last up to 3-4 months. With repeated treatments, the results may tend to last longer.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Can Infrared Light Therapy Help with Pain Management?Poor circulation and the lack of oxygen and other essential molecules (i.e., glucose, Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP)) in blood vessels can cause pain or a lack of sensation. Light energy stimulates the release of nitric oxide, causing blood vessels to increase in diameter (vasodilation) and allowing more blood flow, oxygen, and other important factors to be delivered. This increase in oxygen and nutrients, along with stimulation of the light energy emitted from Celluma LED devices increases ATP production, which activates pain relieving pathways. This decreases pain and inflammation, and increases tissue regeneration in the localized area.
How does anti-Aging Treatment with LED Light Therapy work?Now that we've established a base understanding of why collagen is essential as we age, let's look at the most groundbreaking and natural way to effectively generate more collagen in your body using the anti-aging effect of LED light therapy. Proven red and near-infrared wavelengths are utilized in the Celluma LED light therapy device to combat the signs of aging. These specific wavelengths of light energy are clinically verified to enhance your body's natural ability to generate collagen and elastin by activating the fibroblast cells. No prescriptions. No medications. No injections. No surgery. Just safe, natural wavelengths of effective, proven light energy.
How can Blue Light Therapy Eliminate Acne Faster?If you suffer from acne, it’s likely you’ve heard of light therapy as a possible solution to your pimple woes. LED blue light therapy is the new wave of skin care for people who have tried other acne treatments, but still aren’t seeing the results they want. Light therapy used to only be available at a dermatologist’s or aestheticians office, but with the advent of affordable, effective, at-home light therapy device design, blue light for acne is becoming a household treatment that’s non-toxic, non-invasive, and really, really effective. LED light therapy works by killing acne-causing bacteria at the source, deep beneath the skin’s surface. As people across the nation are searching for more natural, chemical-free alternatives to traditional medical solutions, light therapy fits the bill perfectly. Blue LED light therapy emits specific, clinically-proven wavelengths of light to trigger an all-natural effect in human tissue, killing acne-causing bacteria, decreasing inflammation, and improving skin tone, texture, and clarity from the inside out. However, not all light therapy is created equal. Blue and red LED light light-therapy is widely used as an effective option for the treatment of inflammatory acne. One study concluded that “…blue light and red light may act synergistically in improving acne by combining antibacterial and anti-inflammatory action, rendering phototherapy with blue and/or red light an effective and safe treatment for acne vulgaris.
