Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin® Which one is for you?

You have probably heard of BotoxÆ before, the magical treatment that relaxes the lines to give you a natural refreshed look, but this is just one of the few options currently available.  

The three most common botulinum toxins for aesthetic purposes are BotoxÆ, DysportÆ, and XeominÆ.  The three products although formulated by varying companies all provide the same result, which is the temporary correction of moderate to severe forehead lines, crow’s feet lines, and frown lines between the eyebrows. Experienced injectors of these products may also be able to provide off label treatment options.  The results are obtained by blocking nerve signals when injected into a muscle, thus preventing muscle contractions.

One of the differences between these brands is the additives or lack thereof. While DysportÆ and BotoxÆ both contain additives, XeominÆ contains only the therapeutic component and no accessory proteins.  XeominÆ and its lack of additives means your body is less likely to become resistant to it or build antibodies.  This is great for those patients who have been doing BotoxÆ or DysportÆ for many years and feel like it is not working like it used to.  However, in general, this is a rare occurrence.  

Each aesthetic company gives patients the opportunity to earn discounts off future treatments.  Brilliant Distinctions is a great program for BotoxÆ users while Asipre Rewards is for patients who prefer DysportÆ.  The Xperience program is for patients who prefer XeominÆ.  Many times patients choose their injectable based on the program they are enrolled in so they can continue to obtain the wonderful savings offered.

Now that we have discussed the differences, lets get to the similarities.  All product onset is anywhere between 24 hours to 4 days with complete result in 2 weeks.  The results last anywhere from 3-5 months.  The longevity of the result really depends on the individual patient with some metabolizing the products quicker than others. Last but not least, all products are approved by the FDA, safe and effective, and give patients a refreshed youthful appearance.  The best way to determine which product is right for you is to meet with one of our providers for a complimentary consultation where they can come up with an individual treatment plan that works best for you. 

TruSculpt 3D - Non-Surgical, Fat-Reducing Body Sculpting Treatment

In Florida it’s pretty much swimsuit season year-round. If you’re not feeling beach ready let us help! Paradise Dermatology is excited to add a non-surgical, fat-reducing body sculpting treatment option for our patients. TruSculpt 3D is the newest advancement in radio frequency technology that uses deep heating energy to reduce fat up to 24% in the area treated.

TruSculpt can be performed on all skin types and is ideal for those with a BMI (body mass index) of less than 30. Treatment areas can be anywhere there is pinchable fat including the abdomen, flanks, back, neck, and arms. Treatment time will depend on area being treated, but most can be completed in an hour or less.

During this treatment, the provider will lightly glide a handpiece over the area being treated. The temperature will slowly heat up, this is well tolerated and described by most patients as being similar to a hot stone massage. There is no downtime or side effects associated with this procedure, however area treated may be red and tender resolves within a few days.

After having TruSculpt your body’s immune system will begin to breakdown and flush out the fat cells that were treated. While everyone’s body does this at different rates, typically you will see results after 6-8 weeks with continued improvement up to 3 months with only 1 treatment.
Your new figure is just a TruSculpt 3D treatment away! Call our office with questions and to schedule your complimentary consultation.
