Most people want to hold onto their youthful-looking skin. Unfortunately, aging is inevitable, and so are the forehead wrinkles and facial lines that come with it. Over time, facial expressions (like smiling, frowning, and squinting) lead to creases and lines. Fortunately, board-certified ophthalmologist Dr. Steven Yaplee and his aesthetic specialists at Triangle Laser & Aesthetic Center in Bakersfield and Delano, CA have a solution (or three) – injectables.
Injectables are used to reduce the formation and look of common aging signs, like forehead creases, Crow’s feet, and frown lines between the brows (also known as “elevens”). Our experts are trained to offer patients three options: BOTOX®, Dysport®, and XEOMIN®. Here’s an overview of each – and how they can help regain your youthful glow.
How do injectables work?
If you’ve tried face creams, face masks, and all other kinds of at-home anti-aging remedies, you might know that not only do these take time, but they also don’t often work.
Injectables take about ten minutes, and they can produce noticeable results in just a few days. BOTOX, Dysport, and XEOMIN are performed in one of our state-of-the-art treatment rooms in Bakersfield or Delano, CA. Dr. Yaplee or one of our Triangle Laser & Aesthetic Center experts will administer the wrinkle relaxer solution in your trouble areas. When you return home, you can go right back to your normal daily routine.
In just 2 – 3 days, you’ll start to notice smoother, firmer skin. What’s more, you can enjoy up to four months of youthful-looking skin.
What is BOTOX?
BOTOX is an injectable made from botulinum toxin type A. In small doses, it can offer a wide range of benefits, including temporarily smoothing facial wrinkles and improving your appearance and confidence.
BOTOX works by weakening or paralyzing some muscles, or by blocking specific nerves. This causes muscles not to be able to contract as freely as prior to treatment. The result? Youthful-looking skin you’ll be proud to show off.
What is Dysport?
Dysport is similar to BOTOX. In fact, both injectables use the same active ingredient and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
The difference with Dysport is how much of this ingredient is in the injectable. Dysport is more diluted than BOTOX. Depending on the location of your injectable, such as if you are treating severe forehead lines or frown lines, Dysport may be more useful.
Additionally, Dysport spreads a bit faster over larger surface areas. This is another reason it’s more often used for areas, such as your forehead.
What is XEOMIN?
XEOMIN is yet another form of injectable. Similar to BOTOX and Dysport, it uses the same active ingredient of botulinum toxin type A.
The difference is that XEOMIN uses a “naked” form of this ingredient – meaning it doesn’t have any protein additives. This more purified substance may actually help prevent something called antibody resistance, which is when your body doesn’t react to the active ingredient as well, leading to less noticeable results.
