If you are unhappy with lines on your face, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Jonathan Fugo. He will examine your skin, discuss your concerns with you, and help you choose the options that will work.
Xeomin. Just like BOTOX Cosmetic, this injectable softens the appearance of fine lines and creases caused by repeated facial expressions. It is ideal for softening folds between the eyebrows, across the forehead, and at the outer corners of your eyes. So if it is frown lines and crow’s feet that you are unhappy with, then this injectable might be the right option!
Facelift. It is possible that it’s actually sagging skin and jowls that you are unhappy with, and not necessarily the wrinkles alone. If so, then a facelift might be the right option. This procedure can be customized to meet your unique concerns, but generally you can expect a more defined jawline, reduction of deep folds around your mouth and nose, and reduction of the wrinkles and banding on your neck, and generally a more youthful looking facial appearance.
Brow lift. If you have deep wrinkles stretching across your forehead, then you may be a good candidate for a brow lift. This procedure elevates the brow so that it is smoother and firmer, but without sacrificing natural-looking results.
Dermal fillers. Oftentimes wrinkles are caused by the natural loss of fat and collagen below your skin. In these cases, the wrinkles can essentially be filled in and smoothed out with dermal filler injections. These injectables can be used on many areas of the face.
If you are interested in facial cosmetic surgery or a non-surgical treatment to address fine lines and wrinkles, please call the practice of Dr. Jonathan Fugo at 845-565-7040. Dr. Fugo is a board-certified plastic surgeon in New Windsor, NY, and he is passionate about helping each of his patients find a cosmetic treatment plan that will achieve their goals.
Dr. Jonathan Fugo provides Xeomin injections because he has found that this brand offers the best results to his patients. If you aren’t sure whether Xeomin will work for your goals, we encourage you to give us a call. We can tell you more about the features and benefits of this type of wrinkle treatment.
Xeomin, Dysport and BOTOX Cosmetic are injectable wrinkle-relaxers made by separate manufacturing companies. You can think of them as similar injectables but different brands. These injectables have a lot in common, including the following benefits:
- No recovery period
- No anesthesia, incisions, or sutures
- Effective wrinkle-smoothing results
These injectables work because of botulinum toxin, a material that is safe in the amounts used for injection purposes. Botulinum toxin blocks the chemical communication happening between the targeted nerve and muscle. This block prevents the muscle from contracting, which in turn prevents the skin from folding in that area. The active folding itself forms a wrinkle, like when you furrow your brow together and those vertical creases form between your eyebrows. As you age, the inevitable diminishing of collagen and elastin in your skin means that your skin becomes less elastic, and therefore the lines remain even after you’ve relaxed your face. The skin doesn’t smooth out immediately after you’ve stopped furrowing your brow, like it did when you were younger. Xeomin, Dysport and BOTOX (all similar injections) stop the muscle contraction from happening in the first place, so your skin will stay smooth and wrinkle free in that target area.
How Do I Know Which One Will Work for Me?
Many people wonder whether one wrinkle-relaxing injectable is better than the other. Oftentimes it comes down to personal preference. After years in practice, Dr. Fugo has settled on offering Xeomin to his patients because of the results this injectable provides. It also is the only botulinum injection made without any preservatives, providing the purist form of the natural molecule. It’s great for treating:
- Glabellar lines between the eyebrows
- Crow’s feet at the corners of your eyes
- Horizontal forehead lines
- Bunny lines on the sides of your nose
- Gummy smile
Discuss your options with Dr. Fugo to make sure you are matched with the non-invasive treatment that will accomplish your goals.
