How Botox and Xeomin Works
What to Expect During a Botox Treatment Session
Before injecting Botox, your provider will give you the option of having a topical anesthetic if you wish. Many people, however, do not find this initial step necessary, as they are able to tolerate the injection discomfort quite well. Your provider will then use a tiny fine needle to inject small amounts of wrinkle relaxer into your skin and/or muscles. The number of injections she administers will depend upon the size of the area being treated and the exact complaint being addressed. It usually takes about 10 minutes to administer Botox injections. These are quick and you can be in and out of your appointment.
After the procedure, you can resume normal activities immediately. You should avoid rubbing the treated area as this may cause the product to move into another part of the face. Some patients experience minor redness or bruising at the injection site, which can be covered with makeup with minimal problems.
Over time our body looses collagen, elastin, fat, and hyaluronic acid causing our skin to sag. Due to the above changes we begin to lose that youthful appearance in our skin. Dermal fillers from Allergan (Voluma, Juvéderm®, Vollure, Volbella) are used to correct the above changes in areas such as your laugh lines to help restore that youthful appearance.
Dermal Fillers are made of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) which is a naturally occurring, hydrating substance found in your skin. As you age, you start to lose HA, which causes the skin to lose structure and volume. Good news is that we can help correct these!
What Areas are Typically Treated with Dermal Fillers?
Find yourself seeking total facial rejuvenation, but do not want the risks associated with surgery? We offer optimal dermal filler treatments with Allergan (Voluma, Juvéderm®, Vollure, Volbella) for prospective patients over the age of 21 who would like to treat minimal to severe nasolabial folds, marionette lines, thinning lips and facial volume loss.
Patients with severe allergies to hyaluronic based fillers or lidocaine mixed in the filler, a history of anaphylaxis, an active infection near the site of injection and women who are currently pregnant and/or breastfeeding should not receive dermal filler injections. We will review your medical history to determine if the treatment will be suitable for you.
