Botox® Dysport® & Xeomin®

Dr. Justin Yovino – Your Plastic Surgeon in Beverly Hills

For several years now, injectables have been quite popular among those seeking cosmetic surgery treatments in the Los Angeles area. Injectables are substances that are injected into the tissues beneath the surface of the skin that help to relax the underlying muscles that can cause wrinkles, folds, and lines. Those deep lines and wrinkles can give your face a worried, tired, uninviting, or even angry appearance even when you are cheerful, happy, and positive. Dr. Yovino, a board certified Beverly Hills cosmetic surgeon, can decrease those wrinkles and folds with non-invasive, non-surgical injections that are completely safe and will improve your overall facial appearance.

Dr. Justin Yovino – Beverly Hills Botox Injections

The most common injectable treatments are Botox and Dysport. Both of these injectables are virtually painless because ice and/or a numbing cream are applied in advance of the injections. For most patients there are no side effects to injectables, although in some rare instances, some patients experience some minor bruising that is hidden with makeup. Because there are no noticeable side-effects or prolonged recovery requirements with Dysport and Botox, Los Angeles area residents who receive injectable treatments are able to resume regular activity with little to no downtime.

Botox is used primarily to treat the muscles between the brows. Botox relaxes moderate to severe lines in this area of the face for most patients 18 to 65 years old. Your plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, Dr. Justin Yovino, can safely inject this treatment into the muscles that rest just beneath the surface of the skin in order to block the nerve impulses to that area. Because the muscle activity in that area will be significantly reduced, the deep lines, wrinkles, and folds will begin to decrease. Because Botox is non-invasive, pain-free, and has no recovery period, it is the choice of many patients in Beverly Hills and their plastic surgeons, including Dr. Yovino.

Another injectable option for those wishing to reduce frown lines and wrinkles is Dysport. Dysport uses a slightly different protein than does Botox, and in some patients, it works more quickly than Botox would. In some patients, Dysport has seemed to last longer, as well. Because every patient is different, you will want to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Yovino to discuss which option would be appropriate for you and your situation. As your cosmetic surgeon in Los Angeles, Dr. Yovino has the experience of working with countless patients who have benefitted from both Botox and Dysport, and he can use the knowledge from all of those success stories and bring it to bear on your particular case.

Last, but certainly not least and new to the scene is Xeomin®.

XEOMIN® is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used:

  • to treat the abnormal head position and neck pain that happens with cervical dystonia (CD) in adults.
  • to treat abnormal spasm of the eyelids (blepharospasm) in adults who have had prior treatment with onabotulinumtoxinA (Botox®).
  • to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults.

Xeomin®(incobotulinumtoxinA), made by Merz Pharmaceuticals,  is approved by the US FDA for the treatment of adults with cervical dystonia or blepharospasm.  IncobotulinumtoxinA is made from the bacteria that causes botulism. Botulinum toxin blocks nerve activity in the muscles, causing a temporary reduction in muscle activity.
