Wrinkles are folds and ridges in the skin that develop as we age. Many factors can speed up the process, including sun damage, smoking, dehydration, medications, and environmental and genetic factors. No matter the cause, wrinkles and fine lines are no match for the BOTOX® Cosmetic and the neuromodulators at TKI.
BOTOX® is the brand name of Botulinum toxin type A, produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. There are other brand names for similar injectables that produce similar results, such as Xeomin® or Dysport®, which TKI also carries to accommodate our patient’s preferences.
Why choose BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is used for a range of cosmetic enhancements, including the softening of frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet. It is effective in minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, and also works as a preventative measure by halting the development of new ones.
BOTOX® has additional uses for various conditions, including migraines, TMJ, and hyperhidrosis.
How does BOTOX® Cosmetic work?
As a neuromodulator, BOTOX® Cosmetic blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles, keeping the injected muscles from contracting, which causes the wrinkles to relax, soften, and look visibly smoother.
What can I expect during treatments?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected into the muscles of the face with a fine needle. Treatments only take a few minutes to complete. No anesthesia is required, as the needle only produces a small pinch when injected.
When will I see results and how long do they last?
You may begin to notice results within 1-2 days, with full results appearing within 2 weeks after your treatment. The effects of an injection will last up to 3-6 months for moderate to severe frown lines. As muscle action gradually returns, lines and wrinkles will reappear and will need re-treatment. Over time, lines and wrinkles may look less severe as the muscles are trained to relax.
Will my results look natural?
Yes, this is a technique-sensitive treatment and you can expect it to deliver natural-looking results when treated by the trained experts at TKI. You will look like yourself afterwards, only with less noticeable lines. No one should be able to tell that you’ve had anything done!
What is the difference between BOTOX® and Xeomin®/Dysport®?
Xeomin® and Dysport® are other brand names for botulinum, the neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. These other brands are injected similarly and produce similar results as BOTOX®. TKI carries Xeomin® and Dysport® to accommodate patient preferences, and our experienced staff can help find the product best suited for you and your skin’s needs.
