As we get older, we start to develop wrinkles on our faces. If you are concerned about these wrinkles, there are a number of treatments you can have to get rid of them. Read on to learn more about why fine lines appear in the first place and the best treatments to deal with them.

What Causes Fine Lines and Wrinkles?

Fine lines and wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process and we will all develop them eventually. However, there are certain lifestyle factors that can make them worse over time. Muscle movement from facial expressions like frowning and smiling are a major cause of these lines to develop. Exposure to UV rays from the sun or tanning beds also causes your skin to develop more wrinkles. Smokers are also more likely to struggle with fine lines on the face. 

Neurotoxins for Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Wrinkles that are caused by facial movements are one of the easiest types of wrinkles to deal with. 

Neurotoxin treatments for fine line and wrinkle reduction are very effective and quick to administer. They work by relaxing the muscles so the fine lines disappear and you look younger. There are a number of different types of wrinkle relaxer treatments available, including Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®. At the New York Skin and Vein: now part of Schweiger Dermatology Group, we provide all of these excellent treatments to help you get a handle on your wrinkles and fight the signs of aging. 

Neurotoxins are injected into the skin, usually around the forehead, crow’s feet, and eyebrows. However, they are effective for removing fine lines in areas of the face and neck too.

Benefits of Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®

Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin® are all effective at removing fine lines and wrinkles from the face. You will notice the effects after just a few days and they last up to four months. 

Dysport® is the premier option alternative to Botox® lasting longer and giving a more natural look due to the spreading pattern of the molecule.It gives you a more feathered effect, blending treated areas with non-treated areas and for a non-frozen look. . 

Xeomin® is another Botox® alternative that contains a single ingredient. It offers fast results, although patients may need to wait a few extra days before they notice a difference in their wrinkles. 

All three of these treatments are effective for you if you want to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles. At the New York Skin and Vein: now part of Schweiger Dermatology Group, we can advise you on which treatment is best for you, so you can get the results you are looking for. 

Am I a Candidate for Neurotoxin Treatment?

You might feel cautious about wrinkles relaxers because the word Neurotoxin sounds quite scary. However, these treatments have been used safely for years, so there is nothing to worry about. 

You should not use Neurotoxin treatment if you are pregnant or if you have a neuromuscular disorder, but they are well-suited for everybody else.
