What can Botox® do for you?

Botox and Dysport, along with Xeomin, are molecules that work on the neuromuscular units and relax the muscles for a defined period of time.

Many people may not realize that Botox® was initially used (and is still used) for treatment of medical conditions like spasm of the neck, blepharospasm (twitching of eyelids), strabismus in children (deviation of the long axis of the eye), treatment of migraine headaches, etc.

Corona Hair & Skin Clinic would like to make you aware of what you may achieve with a few injections of Botox®.

Botox® treatments are very safe , unless you are on certain types of antibiotics or have a serious musculoskeletal

Botoxdisorder such as ALS, Myasthenia Gravis, Multiple Sclerosis, etc ( in which case we will not administer them to you).

There are a number of ways you may benefit from Botox®:

1. Cosmetic uses of Botox®:  The use of Botox® has expanded dramatically in the past few years. This is most helpful for wrinkles that have not yet been “etched in”, although it also softens the appearance of “etched in” (or static) wrinkles. Botox® injections are typically spaced out about every 3-4 months. After about 2 years of regular Botox® use, this can be increased to injections every 6 months. This is due to weakening and “retraining” of the muscles over time while on Botox®. Here are a few areas that Botox® can be used and be helpful:Frown lines between eyebrows, forehead lines, wrinkles to the sides of eye (crow’s feet), wrinkles on the bridge of nose (bunny lines), too much showing of the upper gum while smiling (gummy smile), droopy corners of the mouth (sad mouth), smokers’ lines (fine vertical lines around the mouth), twitching of eyelids (blepharospasm), grainy (pebbly) or bulky-looking chin, unsightly vertical bands of muscles in front of the neck (platysma bands), and for slimming of angles of lower jaws in individuals who want a more feminine and slim lower half of the face. Dysport Forehead

        2. Excessive sweating in armpit area: can Botox® help? Some people have excessive sweating in the armpit (axilla) area which could be embarrassing. This could be regardless of the warm season. A single treatment session with Botox® usualluy has long lasting results between 6-9 months. Most insurances cover the cost of such treatment. Please inquire about what can be done in that regard at our clinic.

       3. Teeth grinding ,TMJ problems and pain. Some people have involuntary teeth grinding at night and chipping of the teeth as a result. This could lead to jaw pain and even TMJ problems. Botox® injection into a certain area of the chewing muscles can significantly help and diminish this problem.

      

What is Dysport®?

Dysport in Vancouver, WADysport® is structurally very close to Botox®, and helps to relax the muscles injected in the same way. It has most of the same clinical indications of Botox® usage, and has been in clinical use for many years with a safety profile similar to Botox®. Furthermore, in a subset of individuals, it may even start working faster (as early as 2 days as compared to almost 7 days for Botox®) and last somewhat longer than Botox®.

What’s the advantage of Dysport® over Botox®? Dysport® has most of the aesthetic usages of Botox®, may start acting faster, and may last longer than Botox®. The biggest advantage is pricing. For the same effect expected of Botox®, there is significant savings if you switch to Dysport®. Some people may like one over the other, and eventually it is a personal choice. We have used significant amount of both products in many individuals and have had consistently good results with both.

 

How many units will I need?

Everyone’s face, muscle mass, and different facial structures are unique. As a rule,  each individual’s need for Botox/Dysport/Xeomin is particular to their facial structures.

As a general rule, men need 1.5-2 times the number of units as used for a particular area in women. For a complete face, women may need 40-60 units and men anywhere from 60-100 units.

For common areas of the face the averages are as below ( for women only, men in general need more):

Scowl lines: 12-26 units

Forehead: 8-16 units

Crow’s feet: 6-24 units

Bunny lines: 4-8 units

Chin: 5-10 units
