Soften Wrinkles With Botox
The neurotoxins we have available at the office are Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeaveau. Each brand of neurotoxin acts on the muscle, and/or skin where it is injected.
This safe and quick procedure takes less than 5 minutes, and the results develop over the course of 2 weeks.
Typically the duration is about 3 to 4 months, depending on dosage and metabolism.
Neuromodulators are injected into muscles; it relaxes them so you are unable to crease your skin to create or add to existing static lines.
Most treatment areas may be retreated in 12 weeks.
Peak results are about 5-8 weeks post injection-- plan ahead for events!
Treatment areas include:
Frown lines (11s)
Brows for a lift
Lip (for more lip show)
Pre and Post Care
Before your appointment:
Fill out all of the paperwork and consent forms sent to you.
Avoid alcohol the night before your appointment as it may increase bleeding and the chance of bruising and swelling.
Arrive on time to your appointment without make-up on. Or arrive 10 minutes early and use the restroom to remove any makeup. Eye makeup, sunscreen, and skincare is okay!
If you have any questions about skin care or aesthetic treatments prior to your appointment, please reach out! Best practice is to wait 2 weeks between any procedures/treatments, but advice may vary.
