Some of the first signs of aging that you will notice are the appearance of wrinkles on your forehead or around your eyes. Although these wrinkles may not yet be deep within the skin, they are apparent each time you make a facial expression.
Treatment for facial aging varies. While some patients are interested in surgery, others prefer minimally invasive procedures. The aging features that you exhibit may not be significant enough to warrant surgery, providing the option to consider other treatments.
A popular procedure for facial aging is injectable treatment, particularly with the use of neurotoxins like Botox, Dysport and Xeomin. Each treatment effectively reduces wrinkles along the face and helping you look younger.*
How Do Neurotoxins Work?
Whether you receive treatment with Botox, Dysport or Xeomin, they are composed of the same active ingredient: botulinum toxin type A. In controlled amounts, the botulinum toxin prevents neurotransmitters from creating movement within the muscles.
When you smile, frown, raise your eyebrows or squint, you are using particular muscles in your face. As you continue to make various facial expressions, your muscles will begin to establish wrinkles with each contraction, which can contribute to you looking older.
Neurotoxins inhibit your muscles so that they are unable to contract as intensely. As a result, facial lines are reduced, and your skin appears smoother.*
