Florida dermatologist Dr. Ronald Johnston, MD, provides his medical expert opinion on his work with dysplastic lesions:
An atypical or dysplastic mole is one that often looks different clinically and, when biopsied, has atypical features under the microscope; hence it is called atypical due to the irregular or unusual features.

Xeomin® (incobotulinumtoxin A) is a form of botulinum toxin used to reduce the appearance of aging skin, including wrinkles and furrows. Xeomin® has been used in recent years to treat a neurological disorder called cervical dysontia. It was approved by the FDA in 2012 for the treatment of glabellar furrows, deep wrinkles on the forehead. Doctors may also choose to use Xeomin® to treat wrinkles around the eyes, lines in the upper lips, drooping of the corners of the mouth, as well as prominent bands in the neck. Similar to other forms of botulinum toxin, such as Botox® and Dysport®, Xeomin® is injected into the skin to temporarily immobilize the facial muscles that cause facial wrinkles and frowns.
