Bridal Beauty Q&A: Botox, Dysport, Xeomin
Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are very popular treatments, not only for brides-to-be, but also for the mother of the bride, bridesmaids, and recently even groomsmen and the groom have gotten in on Botox action! How much do you really know about these treatments, though? We’re asking Dr. Mitchel Goldman from Cosmetic Laser Dermatology here in San Diego for some answers to common questions.
Q: What do these treatments do?
A: Neuromodulators are the gold standard for treating expression lines, such as forehead creases, crow’s feet, and the “11” lines you get between the brows, also known as frown lines. A quick treatment with Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin can smooth these lines while still leaving you looking natural.
Q: Can they do anything else?
A: Yes! Not many people know this, but neuromodulators can be used very effectively to prevent excessive sweating. If you’re having a summer wedding and are worried about underarm stains on your dress, look into Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin to ensure you stay dry even in the hottest temperatures. In addition, they can also be used to give a slight lift to the eyebrows, slim the jawline, and correct a “gummy” smile.
Q: I want to look my best on my wedding day, but I don’t want anyone to know I had “work” done. Will neuromodulators leave me looking frozen?
A: As long as you have it injected by an expert, you will absolutely not look frozen. A great injector will know how much to use and where to place it so that you look refreshed and beautiful, not frozen or unnatural. Always see a board-certified dermatologist with years of experience, especially when prepping for an event as big as your wedding!
Q: When is the best time to have it done?
A: For first time users, we advise four months ahead to ensure correct dosage and placement. If everything looks good the first time, the next time can be a week ahead of the wedding!
