How Do These Treatments Work?
Ever wonder how those little injections can ‘erase’ wrinkles? Lets discuss a bit about what Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau are and how they work.
Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are just different brand names of purified and standardized botulina toxin. Each of the brands has a different proprietary unit calculation, so when your physician tells you they injected 20 units of Botox versus 60 units of Dysport, they are similar in their overall effective outcome.
These medications work by being injected to the muscle responsible for causing the dynamic wrinkles. Once injected, the toxin is taken up in to the nerve. Muscles work when the nerve fibers that control them send signals via chemical transmitters. In the case of the muscles of facial expression, that transmitter is called acetylcholine and triggers the muscle to contract. The toxin actually prevents the release of this transmitter, thereby preventing the signal from the nerve to the muscle – the muscle is unable to contract. The injections usually last 3-4 months and the reason for this time frame is that the nerves develop new transmitters which overcome the blockage by the Botox. The muscle gradually regains its function. Now it is time for a visit back to your doctor for a touch up…
Where Is the Product Injected?
Where do we inject the Botox? Usually for the middle of the brow (glabella) there are two muscles responsible for the dynamic wrinkles. One causes the vertical lines and is called the corrugator supercilli. The other is the procurus and causes the horizontal lines at the root of the nose. In the forehead, there is a large fan-like muscle, the frontalis, which leads to horizontal lines. Around the eyes (crows feet) the orbicularis oculi is a circular muscle which helps you squint. The lateral edge of this muscle is usually targeted with the injections.
Botox is also used to decrease sweating and for the treatment of chronic migraines.
Which Should You Choose: Botox or Dysport?
Botox has been on the market as a preferred skin aging treatment for years now. Next was Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau, in that order. Each has its own slight variations however they are all very similar in their outcome and administration. There are some areas that may respond better to one product compared to another. There are also patients to tend to gravitate to one or another.
