Like the popular BOTOX®, Xeomin® and Dysport® are available at the Charleston area's Germain Dermatology, where Dr. Marguerite Germain uses them to smooth out dynamic wrinkles on the forehead. The main ingredient in these injectables blocks chemical signals that trigger muscle movement, preventing the targeted skin from being pulled into a new position and revealing telltale lines. The effects are temporary, allowing movement to return after several months.
Dr. Germain works directly with each patient to determine which treatment would work best to deliver the desired aesthetic results, whether that is Dysport® or BOTOX®, a dermal filler, or laser skin resurfacing. She also administers injections with precision to ensure that patients can continue to show a full range of emotions.
