Houston Botox and Dysport
Want to get rid of those wrinkles around your eyes in about 5 minutes? How about those wrinkles on your forehead? Try BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport®. Houston area men and women visit Yuva Med Spa for this convenient and effective treatment.
What is Botox/Dysport?
BOTOX, Dysport, and Xeomin are named for a medication that is synthesized in the lab and injected into the skin. It acts to temporarily relax muscles. The wrinkles between the eyebrows, the wrinkles on the forehead, and the wrinkles around the eyes are caused by contraction of the underlying muscles. When the muscle contracts, it wrinkles the overlying skin. BOTOX prevents the muscle from contracting; and, Voila…no wrinkles.
BOTOX has been used in the United States for more than 20 years and is an extremely safe medication. DYSPORT is almost the exact same medication except manufactured by a different company…similar to Coke & Pepsi. The primary function of BOTOX is to relax the muscles that cause wrinkles, such as crow’s feet around the eyes. BOTOX can also treat forehead lines and “angry” lines between the eyebrows. BOTOX and Dysport cannot achieve the results of surgery such as facelift in Houston, but it can take years off of the upper face.
BOTOX and Dysport can be used for almost everyone, takes just a few seconds to administer and is virtually painless. The effects of BOTOX take about 4 to 6 days to take effect, and each treatment lasts for about 12 to 14 weeks. Dr. Athré also offers injectable fillers like Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® for facial wrinkles on the lower face and around the mouth. In many cases, BOTOX Cosmetic can be used to complement surgical procedures like brow lift, facelift, and eyelid surgery in the Houston area.
Where can Botox be used?
Patients choosing BOTOX treatment in the Houston area generally will focus on one or more of three main areas of the face:
Wrinkles on the forehead
Wrinkles caused by the corrugator muscles in between the two eyebrows (the glabellar region)
Wrinkles on the outsides of the eyes (crow’s feet)
BOTOX Cosmetic provides an economical, effective, and natural result in all of the areas mentioned above. There are also some special uses of BOTOX. In rare occasions, it can be used in the neck to prevent increased contraction of the neck platysma muscles. This can help smooth the neck contour in patients whose platysma muscle contracts too much and causes lines in the middle part of the neck. BOTOX can also be used on the palms and in the armpit regions to control excess sweating.
Why Yuva and Dr. Athré in Houston?
Many salons, spas, and even medical practices offer BOTOX today. Many injectors are aestheticians and nurses with little experience in injecting and tailoring each injection for the patient. At Yuva Med Spa, Dr. Athré injects every single patient himself. “There is a difference between injecting every patient the same way and customizing the pattern for the patient’s individual needs. My background as a surgeon allows me to comprehensively analyze a patient’s face, determine their individual needs, and manipulate the injections to their individual needs,” says Dr. Athré.
