BOTOX, DYSPORT, XEOMIN
ANTI-AGING INJECTABLES IN SARASOTA FL
Over time, stress, sun and life style in general cause all of us to utilize the muscles of the face. Ultimately, the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years will lead to wrinkling.
Ideal candidates are those showing signs of aging, or those who are trying to minimize the development of wrinkles. If you are seeking freedom from fine lines, wrinkles and deep furrows, you would love the benefits that come from BOTOX®, Dysport®, and Xeomin. These anti-aging injectables treatments contain purified proteins that are used to inhibit muscle movement in the face. Botox® is the most popular cosmetic treatment in the U.S., used as an effective way to reduce fine lines and wrinkles on the face and neck.
WHAT IS BOTOX COSMETIC?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a FDA approved prescription medicine that is injected into muscles to temporarily soften the facial wrinkles of both moderate to severe frown (eleven) lines between the eyebrows and crow’s feet lines around the outer area of the eyes.

WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED WITH BOTOX, DYSPORT OR XEOMIN?
Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin injections are given in the forehead (for horizontal lines), glabella (for frown, or“11” lines), and the outer corners of the eyes (for crow’s feet). Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin can be used to elevate the corners of the mouth, eliminate smoker or vertical lines around the lips, reduce neck bands, wrinkly chin, gummy smile, wrinkly nose or bunny lines, and for severe underarm sweating.
The procedure only takes about 15-30 minutes depending on how many areas are treated, allowing patients to return to their daily activities as soon as they leave.
Patients are safe in the hands of our expert Physician Assistant Nancy Callaham, who is trained and certified to administer this treatment, safely, quickly and with little to no pain.
You should expect to see the effects of the injections within 4-6 days. However, because some muscle fibers may remain active for longer, it may take 7-14 days to reach full efficacy. Re-injection should be performed as the muscles regain activity, which is usually 3 months after injection.
