WHAT ARE WRINKLE TREATMENTS?
Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are all variations on a theme...helping you soften the lines on your face.
These products are made of a protein that acts to quiet down the expression muscles of the face. This softening of the muscle activity helps to reduce the dynamic lines that you make while talking and laughing, and also help to soften the more set-in, static lines that are there even at rest.
These medicines can also be used to achieve some special effects on the face! There is a lip-flip that can help the upper lip appear fuller and treatment of a gummy smile (that’s showing a lot of your gums when you smile.... Some people love this, some people don’t). Be sure to ask if you are curious what else Botox, Dysport or Xeomin can do for you!
Most importantly, we will discuss a plan for your treatment before we begin!
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?
A treatment with Botox, Dysport or Xeomin is relatively quick (about 15 minutes for the actual injections). I use a super small needle to place tiny amounts of the wrinkle relaxer exactly where I want it to do it’s work! You may have small marks on your skin that will go away within the hour after the treatment.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
You may start to see results after about 3 days, but it WILL TAKE 14 days for you to see your full results. The effects will last 3-4 months.
- No strenuous exercise afterwards
- No sauna or hot tub
- Please, no laying down for about 4 hours afterward
WILL I LOOK FROZEN?
No. My goal is for you to look like the best version of you!
