Whenever you laugh, frown, concentrate or squint into the sun, your facial muscles contract and your skin creases. As you get older, your skin loses its elasticity and those creases deepen into lines that become permanently etched on your face. Kauffman Medi Spa offers three different medications to treat these lines: Botox Cosmetic, Dysport and Xeomin. These medications can smooth out pesky lines, restoring a more youthful, less stressed expression to your face. The areas commonly treated include: crow’s feet, frown lines, forehead lines and lines on the neck. Additionally, a brow lift is available. This can subtly raise the eyebrows to provide a rejuvenated, more youthful look.
Consideration will be taken regarding the look you are trying to achieve, whether eliminating your frown lines or retaining some movement for a more natural look.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe forehead lines, crow’s feet lines, and frown lines between the eyebrows in adults. Botox Cosmetic was FDA approved in 2002. Since then over 11.8 million Botox Cosmetic treatments have been performed in the United States. You will see your lines soften in two weeks after treatment. Botox is also FDA approved for treatment of excessive underarm sweating. It is a proven procedure for severe underarm sweating when antiperspirants fail!

Wrinkles aren’t your style and the “frozen look” isn’t either. For adults who want a natural look, there’s Dysport®, a prescription injection proven to help smooth the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows without changing the look or movement of the rest of your face. Untreated muscles still work normally, so you can continue to express feelings naturally. It’s the lines that are minimized, not your expressions. Dysport gained FDA approval in 2009, although it has been approved for use outside the U.S. since 2001. You can begin to see results from your treatment in as little as 48 hours.
XEOMIN® (incobotulinumtoxinA) is a prescription medication injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults. XEOMIN® contains botulinum toxin type A, a protein purified from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Xeomin received FDA approval for aesthetic use in 2011. It has been used outside the U.S. since 2008. Full results will be visible between three to seven days after injection.
