Today, thanks to Botox® Cosmetic, Dysport® and Xeomin®, laugh lines, wrinkles, furrows and crow’s feet can be dramatically softened. Safely administered to treat many ophthalmologic and neurological disorders for over thirty years, neuro-modulators such as Botox® Cosmetic, Dysport® and Xeomin® are administered by Dr. Lorenc to effectively block nerve impulses and relax a patient’s facial muscles.
In Dr. Lorenc’s opinion, freezing an area of the face so it lacks all means of expression is unattractive. Rather, his personal technique effectively softens unwanted lines while maintaining his client’s natural facial expressions and mobility.
What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is an injectable neurotoxin treatment, which safely and effectively smoothes facial folds and wrinkles. BOTOX was introduced in 2002 and has the distinction of being the first botulinum toxin to be approved by the FDA for the temporary treatment of moderate to severe glabellar lines between the brows.
After a topical numbing cream is applied to the skin, Dr. Lorenc uses an ultra fine needle to precisely inject small amounts of BOTOX® Cosmetic directly into the muscle tissue he feels need paralysis.
Results are typically seen within days and line smoothing continues to improve for up to 30 days. Time between treatment is typically from four to six months.
Botox Before and After
What is Dysport®?
Dysport® is an injectable neurotoxin treatment, which safely and effectively smoothes facial folds and wrinkles. Dysport® received FDA approval in the U.S. for use as a wrinkle treatment in 2009 and has been used in Europe and elsewhere for many years prior.
After a topical numbing cream is applied to the skin, Dr. Lorenc uses an ultra fine needle to precisely inject small amounts of Dysport® directly into the muscles that cause facial wrinkles. It specifically targets the glabellar muscles – the ones that form creases on your forehead when you frown. Results are typically seen within one to four days and tend to last from four to six months.
What is XEOMIN®?
XEOMIN® is the newest neurotoxin option available in the US market. It was approved by the FDA in 2011 for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines (frown lines) between the eyebrows in adult patients.
Unlike its predecessors, Xeomin® has no additives — just botulinum toxin type A. This may lessen a patient’s likelihood of developing antibodies, which is a consideration because overtime if antibodies are built-up with a neurotoxin such as botulinum toxin type A, it may not deliver its desired effects. After a topical numbing cream is applied to the skin, Dr. Lorenc uses an ultra fine needle to precisely inject small amounts of Xeomin® directly into the targeted muscles to immobilize them.
How long does XEOMIN® last?
Patients see results within one to four days and they generally last from four to six months.
