Neuromodulators (Botox, Xeomin, Dysport)

Neuromodulators (Botox, Xeomin, Dysport)

Botox®, although off label for many uses, is able to treat wrinkles by inhibiting release of acetylcholine which causes weakness of muscles that create wrinkles. Beneficial effects are seen within 1 to 3 days and can last for 4 to 6 months. Sequential treatments are necessary to maintain effect. It is most commonly used at the forehead, glabellar area (junction between the forehead and nose), the nasolabial crease (junction between the upper lip and cheek), the bunny lines (on the sides of the nose), the crow’s feet area (adjacent to the eyes), the dimpled chin, and neck bands. In mild to moderate cases, the entire forehead can be treated by injecting the lower central forehead (glabella) as these muscles are brow depressors and by relaxing them, the frontalis, a brow elevator, smooths out and raises the brows. If this fails to fully correct the forehead, additional Botox® can be injected into the frontalis muscle, but this decreases animation and may lead to descent of the brow.

Important Announcement

Due to COVID-19, MPRSD and the Med Spa will be closed indefinitely beginning March 30th, 2020. Both Dr. Park and Dr. Rebowe will only be seeing post-operative patients, patients with pressing issues, and will continue working hospital consults and ER coverage. However, during this time we will not be seeing new elective patients. Staff will reach out to cancel appointments and notify patients, and will be reaching out to reschedule when we are back in the office.

We always do our best to stay available to our patients. If the normal communication systems break down during this crisis, Dr. Park should be reachable at drchrispark@gmail.com and Dr. Rebowe at drrebowe@gmail.com. Immediate availability cannot be assumed during these unpredictable times so do not email with urgent issues. Urgent issues need direct communication with a provider either through the office or if necessary, your nearest emergency room.
