Serving Orange County: Newport Beach, CA
The top non-surgical cosmetic treatment at my practice, BOTOX® Cosmetic is an excellent option for treating a wide range of wrinkles on many areas of the face. In addition to BOTOX®, my practice also offers Dysport® and Xeomin®, two competitors with a very similar mechanism of action. All of these injectables are comprised of proteins that naturally weaken the specific muscles that form skin wrinkles and creases.

Treating a Range of Facial Wrinkles
BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport® and Xeomin® can treat wrinkles on the entire face, depending on what’s necessary. These injectables are FDA approved for cosmetic treatment of glabellar lines in between the eyebrows, but they are also used “off label” to treat a wide variety of other facial wrinkles. I’ve used these injectables to treat areas including transverse (horizontal) forehead lines, “crow’s feet” around the eyes, “bunny” lines on the sides of the nose, tense and visible muscles in the neck, lines under the eyelids, and lines around the mouth.
In addition to treating wrinkles, BOTOX®, Dysport® and Xeomin® can be used to relax the muscle that pulls down the corner of mouth for a happier expression when the face is at rest. They can also smooth out dimpling of the chin and even lift the brows just a bit for a more alert appearance.
Choosing the Right Treatment for You
Though BOTOX® is by far the best-known botulinum injectable, there is a place for Dysport® and Xeomin® as well. Some people who have successfully used BOTOX® for years find that they can “jump start” their results and see their results last longer by switching to a different filler for a period of time. We can review each option in more detail during your consultation. Also, keep in mind that in addition to these treatments, I offer a full range of injectable facial fillers including JUVÉDERM®, Restylane® and Radiesse®.
The Treatment Process
Only a single treatment is needed to achieve excellent skin-smoothing results, which typically last for 3 to 4 months. Injections can be performed in as little as 15 minutes right in the office, and most of my patients report only mild, temporary discomfort from the injection. I recommend having BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport® or Xeomin® injections every three months. Maintaining the treatments and results will allow the muscles to become “retrained” so that the expression lines fade away more and more, and you need fewer and less frequent treatments.
