Botox can be very effective in smoothing and preventing wrinkles. By blocking nerve signals that cause certain muscles to contact, new wrinkles are prevented from forming and existing wrinkles are smoothed out. Botox facial injections can be used to treat forehead lines, crow’s feet, frown lines, bunny lines, and more! A single Botox session can take years off your face and neck and make you look and feel relaxed and rejuvenated, although results will vary from patient to patient. In addition, recovery from Botox is usually quick and simple.
Botox can also be used to treat a condition called hyperhidrosis. Hyperhidrosis is when a person sweats excessively even when there has been no stimulus to cause it, such as heavy exercise. A person with hyperhidrosis may sweat at any time, and it can cause social anxiety and self-consciousness. Treating hyperhidrosis with Botox is done by by blocking the nerve signals that transmit the order to sweat. If you suffer from hyperhidrosis, botox for sweating may be able to help you prevent this embarrassing condition.
Migraine prevention is another use for Botox. People suffering from chronic migraines who have not had success with other treatments may find that Botox helps. People who suffer from chronic migraines have headaches on at least fifteen days out of the month, with each headache lasting four hours or more. Botox has been proven to help prevent migraines in appropriate candidates, significantly reducing the number of days a chronic migraine sufferer has to deal with a severe headache. At MI Skin Dermatology Center, our Botox experts provide this treatment for migraine headaches. Call today to learn more!

Dysport is another neuromodulator popular for treating wrinkles. The difference between and Botox is that Dysport spreads to a larger area, thus potentially requiring fewer injections. It’s vital to have a Dysport treatment performed by an experienced, meticulous dermatologist like Dr. Melda Isaac, because an inexperienced injector could spread Dysport into unwanted areas, such as the eyelids or lips. It is best to consult with a board-certified dermatologist before undergoing any injectable treatment.
Dysport is a great wrinkle treatment, especially for shallower wrinkles, such as crow’s feet where spreading or diffusion is desired. The results are often seen more quickly than with Botox or Xeomin, although how soon results are seen depends on the individual.
Similar to Botox, Xeomin is a neuromodulator treatment often used for reducing frown lines. Frown lines are the deep lines that develop between the eyebrows over time. As we age, our skin loses its elasticity, and the wrinkles formed by our expressions become deeper and more permanent. Xeomin relaxes the muscles around the eyebrows, allowing wrinkles to smooth out and preventing new wrinkles from forming.
Xeomin has another benefit in that it contains fewer proteins than Botox or Dysport, and thus may be better for people with sensitive skin. Talk to an expert dermatologist to find out if Xeomin may be the best choice for you.
