Neurotoxins are used at Summit Dermatology to reduce the appearance of common signs of aging that occur as a result of repeated facial expressions, such as frown lines and fine lines around the eyes. It is the most popular non-invasive cosmetic procedure performed at Summit Dermatology.
Non-surgical injectable treatments like Botox®, Dysport® and Xeomin® use a purified botulinum toxin that acts as a neuromodulator to relax the underlying facial muscles and soften the appearance of fine lines and dynamic wrinkles. When injected into the muscle, the botulinum neuromodulator works to prevent excessive muscle contractions, which cause lines and wrinkles to appear over time. This helps to improve the appearance of existing signs of aging while preventing the formation of new ones. Although several areas on the face and neck respond well to botulinum neuromodulator, it performs best on frown and forehead lines, fine lines around the eyes (crow’s feet), and the neck to lift and soften banding.
