Botox Cosmetic® in Tucson, Arizona is a medical grade FDA approved neurotoxin that is one of the safest and most highly sought after cosmetic treatments available. We use Botox Cosmetic® purchased directly from the manufacturer, Allergan Pharmaceuticals. This purified protein blocks messages between the muscles and the nerves that control them, thereby relaxing facial expression lines. Botox® is commonly used for lines across the forehead, brow area, “bunny lines” across the nose, crow’s feet around the eyes and fine lines around the mouth.
Achieving a more natural, less frozen appearance is a recent trend in the battle against aging. An artistic alternative method of injecting Botox® to give the face a more natural appearance is the newly developed technique called Microtox or commonly known as “Baby Botox.” While administering a series of strategically placed tiny injections, our certified injection specialist will lift, balance and smooth your appearance leaving a natural reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, but yet still leaving some movement. Lines will improve however; they will not completely disappear like conventional Botox® treatments. Treatments can take up to 7 days to take affect and last anywhere from 3-6 months. Contact us to schedule a complimentary evaluation with a registered nurse and learn how you can restore your youthful beauty with Botox® Cosmetic.
One of the latest wrinkle relaxers to become a competitive choice over Botox® is Dysport®. Dysport® works, in the same way that all neurotoxins do, by preventing the movement of certain facial muscles that cause deep wrinkles. For some patients, Dysport® is a nice alternative if their bodies have built up antibodies to fight against Botox® treatments. Initial studies show that Dysport® may be faster acting and last longer than its predecessor, and this alone could be why this product is on the rise. We manage expectations for our patients letting them know that the neurotoxin family of products are all very similar, and they may or may not have different outcomes by choosing one versus another. Individual preference may vary.
All neurotoxins have a lot in common, Xeomin® is closer in similarity to Botox® because it can take 3-7 days to take affect and last approximately 3-6 months. Xeomin® also works by signaling the nerves in the facial muscles to stop contracting. This process creates a smooth, more youthful appearance. You may be a great candidate for Xeomin®.
