Botox® is an injectable neurotoxin that is derived from the Botulinium neuromodulators. Dysport® and Xeomin® are also both examples of other injectable neurotoxins. They act to paralyze (temporarily) the action of the muscles on a deeper, cellular level. Botox® is the most widely used, safest and accepted of the neuromodulators. Others are becoming more common and accepted, however. Dr. Morris can help you determine which are best for you.
Botox, Dysport and Xeomin
Dr. Morris uses these three injections and knows which to use in each specific situation. They are all considered to be safe and effective. The price is approximately the same for all three as well.
Wrinkles and Bot-NMs
Bot NM is another way to say Botulinium neuromodulators. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons states that Bot NMs are the most widely used, common and safest cosmetic procedures used for women and men in the U.S.
Dr. Morris personally administers the Bot NMs on all patients in the following areas:
- Glabellar Folds and Wrinkles – These are oftentimes the most noticeable wrinkles when a person frowns. They happen near where the forehead and nose meet between the eyebrows. When patients are treated they have a more relaxed look and feel.
- Forehead Wrinkles – These horizontal wrinkles run on the forehead and can be reduced significantly with Bot NMs.
- Crow’s Feet Wrinkles – The wrinkles near the corner of the eyelids that are most pronounced when smiling.
- Perioral wrinkles
- Platysma bands
- Masseter hypertrophy
How Dr. Morris Uses Botox to Reduce Wrinkles
Dr. Morris uses Botox to treat areas all over the face. She can modify facial elevations, reduce wrinkles, and increase volume, change brow positions, eyelid positions and cure wrinkles around the nose and eyes. Lip wrinkles and bunny lines, as well as any other area of the face, can all benefit from Botox injections.
