“Lines at rest” vs. “Lines in motion”
As we age, our skin’s ability to bounce back from the lines and wrinkles that form when making habitual expressions begins to slow down. Wrinkles appear between the eyebrows, above the brows, or around the eyes and mouth.
Once these wrinkles become lines, they are considered “lines at rest.” They may require specific products and procedures like dermal fillers and lasers to rejuvenate the areas.
“Lines at rest” differ from lines and wrinkles “in-motion” that appear when squinting, concentrating, frowning or making an expression. Patients experiencing “lines in motion” may be good candidates for medications that relax the muscle’s contraction.
These same products can be used to help subtly lift areas like the brows and jowls, putting off traditional procedures.
Botox Cosmetic, Dysport, and Xeomin
Botox Cosmetic and Dysport offer similar outcomes for patients, age 18-65 years old, who want to soften frown lines without the downtime of traditional surgery. Studies indicate that for some patients, Dysport may show faster, longer-lasting results than when using Botox Cosmetic.
During a free consultation Dr. Tantisira will discuss your goals. She will examine individual anatomy, including specific muscle movement and effects on wrinkles. Then, she will design an individualized treatment plan that best suits you and your needs.
Botox Cosmetic – Before and After
Botox Cosmetic & Restylane – Before and After
Treatment time is generally very short and depends on the size and amount of the areas treated.
No anesthesia is required, but ice may be used to numb the injection area. Dr. Tantisira uses special needles that are as fine as acupuncture needles, and quite comfortable. She will inject a precise amount into the muscles that cause the wrinkles.
Results last up to 4-6 months, depending on the patient. Some patients like to maintain a certain level of results and may elect to be treated more frequently. Over time, some patients may not need to treat the area as often, nor use as much product. If treated consistently, most patients find that results will last longer with each visit.
If unhappy with your results from other offices or spas, Dr. Tantisira can provide some corrective treatment. Depending on the situation, she may be able to balance out uneven areas with dermal filler injections, or strategic injection of Botox/Dysport to counteract previous treatment.
