Botox and Dysport are ideal therapeutic options if these  wrinkles make you feel self-conscious or look older than you feel.

Botox is a relatively safe and quick method to get rid of wrinkles while you may plan for a rather more long term option for skin rejuvantaion such as Renew 360 which is developed by our research team at Texas Institute of Dermatology, led by Dr. Ghohestani.

Where did these wrinkles come from?

Have you ever wondered, when looking in the mirror, “Where did these lines come from?”  The answer is a combination of factors drives the formation of lines on our face.  While cellular changes, depletion and collagen, hormone loss, and other free radical damage does contribute to the formation of wrinkles, often the most pronounced culprit is frequent and prolonged muscle contractions (i.e. furrowing your brow contributes to the formation of  the vertical lines between your brows known as 11s).  Years of repetition causes these lines to linger even after the muscles are at rest.

The Anatomy of the Wrinkle


Instead of “wearing our emotions on our sleeve,” we tend to wear our emotions on our face, and years of emotional expressions are evidenced by our wrinkles.  The 11s result from muscle movement and contraction over time, as discussed above.  When you are angry or annoyed, your facial muscles contract, causing the overlying skin to pleat, leading to the formation of frown lines.  These outcomes are particularly pronounced in women because they tend to be more animated than men and tend to have more delicate skin than men.  Fortunately, there are treatment options that allow us to significantly reduce or eliminate wrinkles for extended periods of time by simply relaxing the muscles under the skin.  Treatment with BOTOX® or Dysport can visibly smooth and soften moderate to severe frown lines between your brows.  Moderate to significant improvement can be seen within days and may even last up to 4 months, although results may vary. Research performed through clinical trials showed that  nearly 90% of men and women surveyed stated that moderate to better improvement in frown lines was noticed within 1 month of treatment.  The best part about BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport is that treatment is simple, nonsurgical, and physician-administered, meaning a treatment can take place during a routine office visit.

Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are great options for deep lines. These injectables relax facial muscles and unfold wrinkled skin.

Skin aging and wrinkle formation is a complex process that goes all the way down to the cellular level.  It isn’t solely too much sun or too much stress. Botox and other injectables are very good options for the deep and dynamic lines.

 

Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are safe and almost painless procedures if performed by an experienced Physician.

Texas Institute of Dermatology Botox Before and AfterOne 10 minute treatment of a few tiny injections will improve moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, forehead, and crow’s feet which can last up to 4 months. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum, which reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those frown lines between the brows to form over time.  Dysport and Xeomin are newer products with very similar effects. Over 10 million procedures were performed with FDA-approved BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport and Xeomin. Click here to picture yourself with Botox. Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are used for temporary improvement in the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines), forehead lines, around eyes, lines around the nose and mouth, chin, and neck.  Botox, Dysport and Xeomin relax facial muscles for up to four months.  For reasons currently unknown, studies have shown that some patients actually experience relief from chronic headaches as a result of Botox treatment.  More study in this area is required to establish the exact clinical reasons for this frequent outcome.

Botox is a popular non-surgical treatments for lines and wrinkles. Botox, Dysport and Xeomin injectables are used in our San Antonio/ Boerne office is used to target glabellar (frown) lines that form between the eyes, lines that stretch across the forehead and crow’s feet that fan outwards from the eyes, some marionette lines and neck lines.

It isn’t just lines and wrinkles that Botox can treat though; it also has a number of other benefits. For instance, new research has shown that Botox can be effectively used to treat chronic migraines, which some 700,000 people living in the UK are thought to suffer from. The non-invasive treatment was approved for use on chronic migraines in 2010 and it is thought that the injection works by blocking the pain signals of migraine or by relaxing the facial muscles.

The injection has also been known to work on treating hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating. The Botox treatments are injected into the underarms and then work to block the nerve signals that are sent to the sweat glands to produce sweat. Excessive sweating can be incredibly embarrassing and even debilitating for some people, making Botox a life-changing treatment that can temporarily stop the problem.

Incontinence can also be temporarily treated with Botox. Specifically, those that have experienced neurological disease and have been left with an overactive bladder can benefit from the treatment, as the Botox can be injected into the muscle to prevent leakage.

Those with upper limb spasticity, such as stiffness in the elbows, wrists or fingers, can also be treated with Botox injections to loosen the muscles. Botox is available for the treatment of cervical dystonia to aid with abnormal head position and neck pain, as well as for people with strabismus (eye muscle defects) and (blepharospasm) eyelid spasms.

What to expect at the office.

Before you try and schedule your first BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport treatment consultation, you probably have some questions, such as: How long will it take? How long will the results last? Will it hurt? Will I still be able to make facial expressions? Here’s what you might expect at our office from the moment you arrive until your procedure is done. (Please note that although this experience is typical, the procedure may be different according to your needs and our doctor’s decision.)

The day before your appointment.

Avoid drinking green tea, fish oil and the Aspirin (after checking with your Doctor) 24 hrs before the procedure. This will help minimize the risk of bruising.

The day of your appointment

Allow time before your appointment for filling out forms and for consulting with the doctor or a member of his or her staff. If it’s your initial visit, Dr. Ghohestani will listen to you and ask you about your expectations. He will then carefully analyze your hyperactive facial lines and provide you a stepwise approach for your face. Sometimes, you may need a laser or filler treatment instead of Botox in order to achieve maximum results. He will also discuss with you about preventive measures you can take to keep your face beautiful. Most of Dr. Ghohestani’s patients are happy with his unique approach in maintaining a natural look while looking younger. Don’t forget to bring him some of your head shots when you were 5, 10 and 20 years younger. Our staff is also trained in skin care and skin care procedures and can answer many of your questions.

Before the procedure

You’ll be seated in a reclining chair, much like you find in a dentist’s office. No anesthesia is required, although the Doctor may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or an anesthetic cream.

The procedure

Dr. Ghohestani will determine where to administer the injections by examining your ability to move certain facial muscles. The entire BOTOX® Cosmetic, Xeomin or Dysport injection procedure takes approximately 20 minutes.

 

After the procedure

There’s no recovery time needed. You’re ready to get on with your day! The most common side effects following injection include temporary eyelid droop and nausea. Localized pain, infection, inflammation, tenderness, swelling, redness, and/or bleeding/bruising may be associated with the injection. Patients with certain neuromuscular disorders such as ALS, myasthenia gravis, or Lambert-Eaton syndrome should not be injected.

Seeing the results

Within 7-14 days, you may notice an improvement in the moderate to severe deep lines that can last up to 4-6 months.  For reasons currently unknown, studies have shown that some patients actually experience relief from chronic headaches as a result of Botox treatment.  More study in this area is required to establish the exact clinical reasons for this frequent outcome.

Follow-up visit

You will be scheduled for a follow-up appointment within 2 weeks for touch-ups.

The Cost of Botox, Xeomin and Dysport in San Antonio

Costs of Botox in San Antonio is not different from other areas in Texas. Cost varies over a wide range depending upon expertise of the doctor, and number of areas of face that will be injected. Many non-derm doctors, Nurses even aestheticians inject the Botox, Xeomin and Dysport. Not all of them have extensive expertise with the injection, proper dosage, or a medical setting that can offer the highest level of quality care. Since inexperienced injectors are not properly trained,  they will inject a few units,  have patients to come back more often. Dermatologists typically charge more for Botox or Dysport as they are best equipped to perform your procedure and they inject a higher amount to achieve maximum satisfaction. We offer two payment options for Botox, Xeomin or Dysport in our San Antonio Botox clinic: by area or by unit.  The beauty of paying by area is you get a guaranteed result in just one payment.  If you need a touch-up to achieve desired results, there is no out-of-pocket charge for the additional units. The beauty of paying by unit is if you know you only need a certain amount of Botox to achieve the desire result, this may be a cheaper option.  Call our office at (210) 698-6777 to see what specials we may be offering.

What happens to Facial Muscles?Facial Muscles for Learning Botox Injections at Texas Institute of Dermatology

Hyperfunctional lines result from the contraction of the underlying facial musculature. The forehead is a complex of the frontalis muscle with insertions onto fibers of the procerus, corrugator, depressor supercilii, and orbicularis muscles. The frontalis muscle, responsible for the surprised appearance when acting unopposed, mediates elevation of the brow and is primarily responsible for horizontal wrinkles. Soft tissue laxity of the forehead and periorbital area causes brow ptosis and reflex contraction of the frontalis muscle to restore brow position, exacerbating forehead rhytides. Treatment of these rhytides with BOTOX® can increase brow ptosis. The frontalis muscle can also be responsible for the appearance of scowling. However, the main agent responsible for the appearance of scowling is the corrugator muscle. The normal function of the corrugator is as a brow adductor, bringing the eyebrow medial and inferior. Chronic contraction of the corrugator results in deep vertical hyperfunctional lines between the eyes, sometimes referred to as a glabellar crease. The depressor supercilii muscle pulls the medial brow inferior and medially. The last muscle in this group is the procerus muscle, which overlies the nasal root. Contraction of the procerus results in a snout-nose appearance and a horizontal rhytid at the nasal root. The anatomy of hyperfunctional lines in the orbit is intricate. Contraction of the orbicularis oculi muscle is primarily responsible for the clinically observed periorbital crow’s feet. The orbicularis oculi muscle is bordered superolaterally by fibers of the frontalis muscle and medially by the levator palpebrae muscle. Injection of this area requires special cognizance of adjacent musculature to avoid upper lid ptosis.
