The Botox is in the family of neurotoxin products. Other similar products include Dysport and Xeomin- Dr. Leithauser personally prefers Botox. The products work on wrinkles called “dynamic rhytides,” a term meaning wrinkles that are present when facial muscles are moving/contracting but not present when those muscles are at rest. The mechanism of action is essentially the same for each product- the toxin permanently blocks nerve transmission in the area where it is injected, preventing nerve impulses from reaching muscle fibers, thus preventing contraction of the fiber and preventing a wrinkle from forming. Effects typically last for about 4-6 months after treatment.
Like all cosmetic treatments a consultation is required prior to scheduling your appointment. This ensures the service scheduled is the correct service to deliver the desired results.
