Botox, Dysport and Xeomin
Botox®, Dysport® and Xeomin® are quick and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures that consist of a few tiny injections. The injections are administered directly into the muscle responsible for lines between the brows, crows feet, forehead and many other areas. By blocking the release of a chemical that causes these muscles to contract, these neurotoxins enable them to relax.
The Dysport/Botox lip flip is a non-invasive lip enhancement procedure that relies on a neuromodulator composed of Botulinum toxin type A. Dysport/Botox lip flip involves injecting 4-8 units of Dysport/Botox above the upper lip at the center (near the cupid’s bow) and near the corners of the mouth. The primary effect of the lip flip is to relax the muscles (orbicularis oris) that connect to the upper lip, allowing the lip to relax and curl outward, thereby appearing larger and more defined in shape.
Hyperhidrosis is a condition characterized by excessive sweating in the underarms, palms, and feet, more than is required to regulate body temperature. An estimated 3% of Americans suffer from excessive sweating. This condition is embarrassing and hard to disguise. Hyperhidrosis can affect a person’s confidence, productivity, and quality of life – professionally and personally. The treatment is very safe. It interrupts nerve impulses from the brain to relax muscle activity without directly affecting the nerves and muscles. Botox and Dysport injections alleviate severe sweating by blocking the nerves that supply the sweat glands. Precise placement of injections is critical to effectively stopping the glands from producing sweat. Injections are made with a very tiny needle just below the surface of the skin and is relatively painless.
