Botox/Xeomin/Dysport

At our state-of-the-art practice in Las Vegas, Botox is one of our most frequently performed treatments. Botulinum toxin, popularly known as Botox injections is one of the most popular non-invasive cosmetic treatments in the beauty industry. It is estimated that more than 6 million injections are given each year. Usually, these injections are either Botox, Xeomin, or Dysport. These neurotoxins are derived from Clostridium botulinum, a naturally occurring organism that exists inactively and is also non-toxic.

What is BOTOX?

The Botulinum toxin is used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles that develop on the skin, especially around the eyes. The toxin paralyzes the underlying muscles. For this reason, Botox treatments are usable beyond beauty. Some people use the injections to manage muscular movements, bladder and bowel disorders, migraines, and excessive sweating.

Other Wrinkle Relaxers

While BOTOX is the most common of the wrinkle relaxers, Dr. K is proud to offer her Las Vegas injectable patients other options as well. Below, we’ve included information on Dysport and Xeomin. All of them are great options. During your consultation with Dr. K, she’ll be able to explain the differences and the best reconnection for your aesthetic needs.

Dysport

Dysport is a natural-looking, fast-acting, and long-lasting alternative to BOTOX. Depending on the treatment area, Dr. K will sometimes recommend Dysport over BOTOX. Dysport is commonly used to treat frown lines between the eyebrows. The recovery time is similar to other injectables, with patients being able to go back to their normal daily activities following the treatment. The cost of the treatment is best discussed during your appointment, as it will vary depending on the treatment area.

Xeomin

Xeomin is another injectable option. Very similar to the other two, Xeomin is also commonly used in the frown line. Xeomin is also a Botulinum toxin. The main difference between BOTOX and Xeomin is that the latter doesn’t have accompanying, inactive protein, while the former does. The treatment typically takes under 15 minutes to perform with no downtime. The cost of

What’s Our Botox Facial?

Usually, Botox injections penetrate the skin deeply to reach the muscles. However, during a Botox facial, we use microinjections, which are a fraction of a millimeter. Botox facials are ideal for minimizing sweating on the face and reducing pore sizes. Some of the ingredients used for our facials include hyaluronic acid to increase plumpness and give you dewy skin. We also incorporate Vitamin C to provide you with a glow and improve your skin’s radiance.

After several Botox facials, most patients report experiencing less sweating, reduced acne, and less oiliness. One way to explain this is to look at the anatomy of the skin. The oil glands on your skin are like little vessels with muscles around the opening. When the muscles around the vessels contract and squeeze to enhance sweating, the oil comes out. So, if squeezing increases oil production, then reducing the muscle contractions through a Botox facial reduces oil secretion.

BOTOX is administered using a fine needle.

The procedure is done within just a few minutes. Oftentimes, there is minimal bruising and bleeding, which will subside quickly.  The injections will be placed in the forehead or around the eyes, depending on the area of concern.
