Many men and women in their early 20’s understand that if they start utilizing these products at an early stage, they can train their facial muscles to be used less. Many of us started using these products much later in life and are playing catch-up now.

The FDA has approved several products such as Botox, Dysport, Xeomin. These are the latest neurotoxins in the market that will relax your facial muscles to reflect a more youthful appearance. At MediSpa at Choto, our Physician Assistant will do an initial complimentary consultation and recommendation.

We use our facial muscles constantly creating more fine lines and wrinkles. Treating with Botox, Dysport, Xeomin allows those muscles to be at rest and therefore no more frown lines or crows feet!

Botox, Dysport, Xeomin are indicated for both men and women and the earlier you can start with these treatments, the fewer fine lines and wrinkles you will see appearing. This treatment is done about 3-4 months apart (depending on the individual patient).

So how painful is it? On a level from 1-5…. it falls on a 1 or 2. You feel a tiny needle prick and that’s it. The amount of times you get injected depends on how many units you will need.

So how many units of Botox, Dysport, Xeomin do I need? Great question for the Physician Assistant. It all depends on the area(s) you are wanting to treat.

As with any product that is injected, please make sure to read all labels and product information sheets and ask any questions you have to the practitioner. The more informed you are the better the experience.

Maintenance is important since you want to somewhat “train your muscles” to work less (kinda ironic) but it works!
