What is BOTOX Cosmetic?

BOTOX Cosmetic is the most popular brand of botulinum toxin injection for the reduction of unwanted signs of aging. BOTOX is used to provide a reduction of:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Moderate to severe frown lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Wrinkles and creases in the forehead

Dr. Rodney offers customizable treatments to improve your trouble areas and achieve the look you want — whether subtle or more dramatic.

How does BOTOX work?

BOTOX and other botulinum toxin products — including Dysport® and XEOMIN® — reduce fine lines and wrinkles through neuromodulation. Neuromodulators modify the way cells react to signals from the brain. This means that when your brain signals your muscles to wrinkle — like squinting or raising your eyebrows — your muscles respond with weaker movements than normal after treatment with botulinum toxin.

Through neuromodulation, the muscles that cause wrinkles are weakened, smoothing existing fine lines and wrinkles on your face and preventing new wrinkles from forming. BOTOX, Dysport, and XEOMIN temporarily relax the muscles responsible for both dynamic and static facial lines and wrinkles, resulting in a smoother appearance whether your face is relaxed or animated.

What are the differences between BOTOX, Dysport, and XEOMIN?

As a cosmetic expert, Dr. Rodney has the training and skill to determine which brand of botulinum toxin will work best for you. After discussing your skin concerns and goals, Dr. Rodney explains the subtle differences between BOTOX, Dysport, and XEOMIN for your specific aesthetic goals.

BOTOX, Dysport, and XEOMIN all contain different amounts of trace proteins. This can make one option more effective than the others at addressing your specific concerns and trouble areas. You may also notice a more immediate change with one brand of botulinum toxin while another brand may last longer for you, based on how your body metabolizes medications.

Dr. Rodney explains these subtle differences during your consultation to help you choose the best option for your needs.

What can I expect after getting BOTOX?

After getting BOTOX, you may see some redness or irritation in the treatment areas for a couple of hours. However, BOTOX works immediately to relax your muscles and smooth your skin, so you should notice a difference in your appearance right away.

In most cases, BOTOX lasts six months to a year. After the medication wears off, you can visit Dr. Rodney for touch-ups every six months to a year as needed.
