Individuals who experience signs of aging often search for methods to reduce the appearance of these unwanted features. Botox®, Dysport® and Xeomin® can be used to improve several problem areas.
Cosmetic Uses of Botox:
The “11” wrinkles, or folds between your eyebrows
Wrinkles around eyes that extend into your eyelids
Downward turn at the corners of your mouth
Botox Treatment and Recovery
Cosmetically, Botox®, Dysport® and Xeomin® are used to treat lines and wrinkles that are created by muscle movement. These can make you look older, concerned, or unhappy. Injecting Botox®, Dysport® or Xeomin® allows these muscles to relax. Once they relax, the lines and wrinkles decrease, usually lasting from about three to six months. For others, lines and wrinkles may completely disappear. Results vary from patient to patient as each individual has a unique facial anatomy.
An added benefit to receiving injections is that patients may return to their regular activities immediately following their procedure. Results will gradually appear over the days following these non-surgical cosmetic treatments.
When used for headaches the response can vary. Some patients report a dramatic improvement while others report no improvement.
The best way to determine the appropriate choice for you, is by scheduling an appointment at Dr. Carniol’s practice. Located in the Medical Arts Center, it is attached to Overlook Hospital in Summit, New Jersey, and can be easily reached from Interstates 78 and 24.
