Millions of women already know and have experienced BOTOX® Cosmetics –a non-surgical treatment that improves lines between the brows. It was the first FDA approved neuromodulator in 1989 to temporarily treat and improve moderate to severe frown lines in this area. It also received FDA approval for treating crow’s feet in 2013.
BOTOX® Injections for Severe Underarm Sweating
When severe underarm sweating gets in the way of certain daily activities and antiperspirants haven’t worked, you may be a candidate for a BOTOX® treatment for a medical condition known as hyperhidrosis. BOTOX® is approved by the FDA to treat the symptoms of severe underarm sweating when medicines used on the skin (topical) do not work well enough. BOTOX® neurotoxin is injected into the affected areas to help control this condition by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands don’t receive chemical signals, the severe sweating stops. Treatment time for severe underarm sweating takes approximately 15 minutes and results last for approximately 201 days or 6.7 months.
Prescription Dysport® is an non-surgical injection used to temporarily improve the look of your moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows, without changing the look of your whole face. The untreated facial muscles still work normally, allowing you to freely show facial expressions, such as smiling, in untreated areas.
What’s the difference between BOTOX Dysport, and Xeomin?
BOTOX (onabotulinumtoxinA, Allergan) first earned Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval in 1989. Dysport (abobotulinumtoxinA, Medicis) was approved in 2009. Xeomin (incobotulinumtoxinA, Merz) was FDA-approved in July 2010 for treatment of adults with cervical dystonia or blepharospasm.
BOTOX is a leading cosmetic treatment that drastically reduces the appearance of crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles and frown lines. With US FDA approval and launch of this revolutionary anti-aging product in 1989, millions continue to turn to Botox over 20 years later as part of their aesthetic regimen for looking younger. However, two other companies have entered the market as well and are having great success as well, Dysport (US FDA approved 2009) and Xeomin (US FDA approved 2011).
It is understandable how one would want to know about BOTOX, Dysport and Xeomin when trying to determine which treatment is best for them. All three are effective treatments that originate from the same source bacterium, clostridium botulinum. When initially deciding on which neurotoxin to inject we recommend discussing your options with Susan during your personal consultation.
