Botox NYC Wrinkle Treatments at Soignez-Vous
Botox NYC Wrinkle Treatments at Soignez-Vous
Are you beginning to notice the early signs of aging on your face? Do you see "frown lines" between your eyebrows, horizontal forehead creases, or perhaps "crow's feet" radiating from the corners of your eyes? The outward signs of getting older often affect the way we see ourselves. It is possible to overcome the telltale signs of aging and regain our youthful complexion.
There are several benefits to be had from precisely applied Botox at New York’s premier aesthetics destination, Soignez-Vous. Our team of medical professionals is ready to leverage our knowledge to help you take control of the aging process. We are prepared to develop a treatment plan tailored to your unique goals that includes Botox or other wrinkle relief treatments.
Botox® is a drug to reduce the appearance of wrinkles based on a neurotoxin created from a bacteria known as Clostridium botulinum. Its name comes from that process; bo- (botulinum) -tox (toxin).
When injected into certain muscle groups, Botox® causes these muscles in the face to relax, reducing the appearance of wrinkles for several months. The success of Botox over the years has led to other companies producing similar neurotoxin-based wrinkle treatments to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles over time.
As we grow older, our faces lose volume and our skin loses elasticity. This is largely due to a naturally occurring loss of collagen and elastin, but there are myriad other factors that contribute to this process. Genetics, lifestyle, and our environment can all play a role in our appearance as we age. This loss of volume causes the skin in certain areas to sag into areas where the loss of volume is most prominent.
This sagging causes creases in the skin known as static wrinkles. In contrast, dynamic wrinkles are formed by repeated muscle movements over skin that has lost elasticity. Most typically, these are the muscles on your forehead, between your eyebrows, and around your eyes. These muscles also get in the habit of staying contracted and are the ones that can cause you to look perpetually worried or angry. If the muscles can relax, the wrinkles caused by these contractions gradually go away.
At Soignez-Vous, we offer several neurotoxin-based wrinkle treatments for you to consider: BOTOX® Cosmetic, Jeuveau®, Dysport® or Xeomin®. Each treatment works as a nerve blocker to prevent contractions in targeted muscle groups in the face that cause wrinkles.
Each of these treatments is approved by the FDA. While they all offer similar results, they each differ in process and duration. We encourage all of our patients to come in for a consultation to learn about each treatment and decide which is the best option for their goals.
Botox Cosmetic utilizes a natural, purified protein that is administered at very low doses to reduce the contractions of wrinkle-causing muscles. The treatment is minimally invasive and among the safest available.
Advanced Botox Cosmetic targets wrinkles in the face, and can also be used to soften the appearance of the "marionette" lines, "bunny" lines, "smokers" lines, and the platysmal bands that lead to "turkey" neck. Botox can also be used for excess sweating in the armpits and hands, known as hyperhidrosis. The effects can last between three and four months, sometimes longer, varying from patient to patient. Some who use Botox Cosmetic may experience a shorter time frame but can anticipate longer-lasting results with subsequent injections.
Side effects of Botox injections include irritation at the injection site, droopy eyelids, uneven eyebrows, dry eyes, headaches, flu-like symptoms, and dry eyes. Soignez-Vous Aesthetics is regarded among the most experienced New York Botox providers, which makes all the difference in ensuring your results.
Jeuveau® is structurally similar to Botox® Cosmetic in that it uses a purified protein to address dynamic wrinkles by releasing the muscles that cause them. The main difference between Botox® Cosmetic and Jeuveau® is in the area of use. Jeuveau® is mainly used to treat dynamic wrinkles known as “frown lines” that form between the eyebrows.
These are also known as glabellar lines or “the 11s” because they resemble the number 11. Jeuveau® has similar side effects to Botox® Cosmetic and lasts about as long. Some patients say Botox® Cosmetic lasts longer, while others side with Jeuveau®. It depends on your body chemistry and preference.
Dysport® – is a wrinkle relaxer producing very similar effects as Botox to smooth wrinkles. The differences are in the molecular size and the resulting dosing units. Dysport® unit number requirements are higher, though this does not mean the product is less effective.
It is simply the way the product is diluted and delivered. Your treatment with Dysport® will use an equivalent amount of the neuroprotein. As with Botox, individual requirements will vary, with men generally requiring more units for full effect than the units required by women. The spread of the product, time to effectiveness, and longevity of treatment may also be different from person to person. If Botox® has been your treatment of choice but has lost its effectiveness, Dysport® may be a good option for you.
Some patients who frequently use Botox find it no longer brings the results they want. Researchers have discovered a protein in Botox that stimulates antibodies, diminishing the effects. This occurs especially in those who use Botox more frequently. For those who have developed antibodies to Botox, which makes it no longer effective or less effective, there is an alternative. Dysport is a welcome addition to the wrinkle-fighting arsenal. Dysport utilizes smaller proteins that are less susceptible to antibodies.
Just like with Botox, our specialists will determine where to administer the injections based on the lines formed by certain facial muscles. The location, size, and use of the muscles that create wrinkles can vary markedly among different individuals. Patients can expect results of Dysport to last between three and four months. Results will vary with every patient, but you can expect to see results from the injections within two to three days. You may experience side effects, including nose and throat irritation, headache, pain or irritation at the injection site, upper respiratory tract infection, swelling or drooping of the eyelids, sinus inflammation, and nausea.
Xeomin® – yet another wrinkle reducer in our toolbox, Xeomin is different in that it does not carry the proteins that are typical of the other products. The manufacturing process removes the proteins so that Xeomin is referred to as the "naked" botulinum product.
This is a potential advantage as it may lessen the likelihood of antibodies being formed to the proteins which – for a very limited number of patients – can render the product ineffective. Studies show that a patient that developed antibodies to Botox and other protein attached products could see renewed wrinkle reduction efficacy with the use of Xeomin after a waiting period of 2 years.
The treatment lasts anywhere from ten to twenty minutes, involving the injection of Xeomin® into the facial muscles. While anesthesia is not necessary, a local anesthetic may be used along with other pain-reducing measures to minimize discomfort. Patients report Xeomin® results last anywhere from three to six months. Some patients using Xeomin® reported moderate to severe side effects, including dry eyes, neck pain, fatigue, headaches, eyelid swelling, and irritation at the injection site.
Whether you choose to use Botox®, Dysport®, or Xeomin®, you can be assured that we will partner with you to devise a plan that is best suited to achieve the results you desire. Our team of experienced and trained professionals is ready to ensure you walk away confident and satisfied. Just because none of us escapes getting older, that does not mean you have to surrender to the effects of aging.
As you can see, a variety of treatments is available to help you regain control of your appearance. If the thought of plastic surgery sounds extreme, it's easy to refresh the look of your face with "just a little something," like BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, or XEOMIN® treatments in New York City.
