Botox Q & A

Qvita Health and Wellness

What happens to my skin as I age?

Every time you smile, frown, or furrow your brow in concentration, your muscles contract, pulling your skin with them, to form the expression. As your skin ages, it begins to lose collagen and elastin, which are responsible for the elasticity and tone in your skin. This means that these same facial expressions begin to linger long after your expression because your skin doesn’t bounce back as it once did.

Also, as you continue to make these facial expressions, the lines become more etched into your skin with each passing year.

How can I address the lines on the top half of my face?

There are a number of cosmetic injectables called neuromodulators that work on the muscles that create the lines around your eyes, on your brow, and on your forehead, including:

Botox®

Arguably the grandfather of cosmetic injectables, Botox contains botulinum toxin type A, which is approved by the FDA to temporarily make moderate to severe frown lines, crow's feet, and forehead lines look better in adults.

Xeomin®

This newest technology injectable relies on a neurotoxin to block the release of chemicals that cause the muscles to contract between your brows, which softens vertical lines between your brows. It is the only preservative-free neurotoxin available.

 

Dysport®

This injection smooths the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between your eyebrows without changing the look or movement of the rest of your face, allowing you to express your feelings naturally.

All three products are designed to reduce the lines around your eyes, brows, and forehead, allowing your expressions to come and go with your feelings, and not linger because of aging skin.

If you have other areas you’d like to address with neurotoxins, ask about off-label uses.

How long before I see results and how long do they last?

After your visit to Qvita Health & Wellness, your results will reveal themselves over the following 3-7 days. By the end of the week, you should see a noticeable difference in your treatment areas.

Individual results may vary, but Botox and other neurotoxins generally last up to four months, at which time you simply return for a touch-up treatment.

To tackle moderate to severe lines, call Qvita Health & Wellness to schedule an appointment.
