When you hear of botulinum toxin A, thoughts of botulism likely come to mind. And although botulinum toxin A is derived from the same debilitating bacteria that can cause botulism, it won’t do you any harm. As a purified form of the substance, botulinum toxin A is what injectables like Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport are comprised of. By temporarily relaxing the muscles in the face, these injectables can help soften fine lines and wrinkles and make you look more youthful. Although these injectables are primarily used to treat fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and forehead, they can be used for a variety of other cosmetic concerns. Read on to learn more.
As you age, the skin on your neck starts to lose elasticity, making it kind of bunch up and create small neck bands. To help temporarily tighten these neck bands, we can use an injectable like Botox.
A dimpling chin is typically caused when one of your jaw bones is larger than the other— creating an asymmetrical look in the process. Luckily, by getting an injectable like Botox, Xeomin, or Dysport, we can help reduce the dimpling appearance with just one set of injections.
