Botox® Cosmetic, Dysport® and Xeomin® Treatments

If you are looking older or more tired than you feel,from wrinkles, Botox® Cosmetic, Dysport®, and Xeomin® treatments to the face and neck are an easy, rapid and affordable way to enhance your natural appearance. These treatments can give you a relaxed, younger and rested appearance within a matter of days.

In addition, to helping with wrinkles, Dr. Stolman is excited to offer these treatments for help with teeth-grinding and lower cheek hypertrophy or enlargement.  Many people suffer from Bruxism or teeth-grinding which can occur overnight during sleep, often without one’s knowledge.  Untreated Bruxism may lead to headaches or (temporomandibular) joint pain as well as abnormal enlargement of the masseter muscles in the lower cheeks of the face.  Enlargement of the masseter muscle, or masseter hypertrophy, can detract from one’s appearance.

Botox®, Dysport® or Xeomin® treatments are simple and almost painless, performed with very small injections into facial muscles that cause them to relax and wrinkles (or Bruxism) to fade. The injections are very precise and affect only a few muscles of the face. The result is a relaxed, less-wrinkled appearance to the skin.

What is the difference between Botox®, Dysport® and Xeomin® ?

The three are variations of botulinum toxin, a medication used to relax the muscles of our face and neck that form wrinkles.  It is like Pepsi vs. Coke.  Recent studies comparing these medicines show that there is no significant difference other than their manufacturing concentrations.  Some people find that over time one product may lose it’s punch and like to rotate to another.  In addition, sometimes the products will vary a little in price.  Having options means a product that works just right for you.

All three treatments are considered extremely safe as a cosmetic treatment to enhance one’s appearance and visible results will be noticed in only 7 to 10 days. (For optimum improvement treatments are recommended three to four times a year.)  In addition, with repeat treatments wrinkles may remain softer and shallower longer.

Results can be further enhanced with the addition of soft tissue fillers such as Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm, Radiesse, or Sculptra . IPL Light and Laser PhotoFacials skin treatments, Laser resurfacing, eyelid surgery, chemical peels, and laser/ radiofrequency/ultrasound skin tightening can be used together with Botox® or Dysport® to achieve the optimum result.

Successful injection of Botox® Cosmetic, Dysport® and Xeomin® require skill, experience and judgment to perform the treatment safely and effectively. The original technique of administering Botox® (the first of these medicines) for rejuvenation was discovered and described by a Dermatologist and his Opthalmologist wife, who were excited to find that when Botox® was injected for spasm of the eyelid muscles not only did it help stop the spasm but it improved the nearby wrinkles.  As a board-certified Dermatologist and Dermatologic Surgeon since 2001 Dr. Stolman has many years experience and success with these treatments.
