I've created a series of videos to describe some of the procedures that we have available here at the clinic. I wanted to first of all welcome you and invite any questions that you might have.
We certainly have a nice array of materials that you can look at and view on the iPads as well as on our website, and my blog DrMaas.com, but for the time being I wanted to just start by saying a few words about Botox.
Botox is a product, along with Dysport and Xeomin , which relaxes the muscles when injected directly with a very tiny needle. That's the simple way of describing how Botox, Dysport and Xeomin work.
I've been involved in the approval and the comparative studies with all these products for number of years now, and in particular Botox and Dysport and both very good products that have a 20+ year history of safety and and effectiveness in patients.
We'll go through in some detail how they work and a little bit about the anatomy but in basic terms Botox and Dysport work in the upper third of the face as a primary therapy, in addition to some lower facial applications too that use them for, as well. For example, bands in the neck, the downturn corner of the mouth, and to some extent it can help with the small wrinkles around the upper and lower lip.
So the basics again of Dysport, Botox and Xeomin are that they relax muscles. We are trying to control the hyper functional or over active frown and squint lines around the upper face. We can also get some brow elevation with them.
I look forward to discuss in this further with you as well as providing you this exciting treatment that's easy and minimally invasive.
Thank you, I'm Dr. Corey Maas and I’m glad to be able to help you Look Your Best.
