Jerome R. Potozkin, MD and Dr. Samantha Ellis, MD are proud to offer Dysport and Xeomin, also known as neuromodulators.
Millions of people love receiving Dysport and Xeomin. However, because of how these procedures are inaccurately portrayed in the media, they are often feared. These injectables have gained popularity since their initial discovery and are now one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment options in the world. Unfortunately, we see many people with unnatural-looking brows and frozen faces because of the trend in inexperienced and poorly trained practitioners offering these treatments.
At our office you can expect nothing but the best and safest treatment. Dr. Potozkin and Dr. Ellis are Board-Certified Dermatologists specializing in minimally and non-invasive cosmetic procedures and has extensive experience with neuromodulators.
Natural aging or stress causes frown lines, crow’s feet, and any other unwanted wrinkles on the face and neck. Additionally, repeated muscle contractions eventually cause the skin to furrow and fold. With these injections, we are able to inhibit the targeted facial muscles, allowing for a smooth, rejuvenated look. When performed by a skilled medical professional, the results can be amazing. Our goal is not to produce a frozen face. Rather, your procedure will result in a more natural, refreshed, and relaxed face. To minimize bruising, our office utilizes AccuVein technology to ensure a quick and speedy recovery.
During your appointment, we will discuss your cosmetic or medical needs and address which injection, or a combination of injections, are right for you. On average, the procedure for Dysport or Xeomin takes about 5-10 minutes with results lasting anywhere from 3-6 months depending on how your body metabolizes the product. Please note that Neuromodulators do not have permanent effects; after about 3-6 months, your facial lines will gradually reappear and additional injections will be needed. For best results, we recommend receiving treatment about three times per year.
If you have been considering Dysport or Xeomin, have received treatment by an unskilled practitioner, have previously received unsatisfactory results, or want to explore neuromodulators again, we are happy to help.
