How do Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin work?
They temporarily interrupt the nerve signals that cause muscle activity. When you frown or squint, your facial muscles create grooves that cause your skin to fold.
Your repetitive facial expressions and continuous skin folding lead to lines and creases, which become more permanent as you get older due to the loss of collagen, which is a structural protein that keeps your skin strong and resilient.
Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin injections temporarily stop the muscle movement that creates the etched-in lines and creases. Your skin relaxes, and the lines and creases diminish, creating a more youthful look.
What happens during Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin injections?
Tiny doses are injected into your skin where you have noticeable wrinkles. The team at Thomas Dermatology performs Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin injections in-office, and the procedure can last from 15 to 30 minutes. The number of injections administered by your provider varies by patient, depending on the severity of your wrinkles and your treatment goals.
Your provider marks your skin with ink before administering your injections so that they can accurately inject the areas in need of treatment.
Administering Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin does not cause any discomfort other than a typical prick that's caused by a small needle. Your Thomas Dermatology provider may administer a numbing cream to alleviate any discomfort.
Patients can return home right after treatment with no downtime required.
How long do Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin last?
Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin injections last between 3-6 months. Your Thomas Dermatology provider can repeat the treatment every quarter, and many patients who receive this treatment usually return for repeated injections.
These injections are practical, easy, and safe ways to minimize the appearance of age-related facial wrinkles. Many patients at Thomas Dermatology consider it a part of their regular beauty routine.
Regular treatments with Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin may help your results last longer. These injections may also prevent new lines and creases from forming.
Thomas Dermatology also offers dermal fillers to restore a more youthful look, which the cosmetic experts may recommend to treat your lines and wrinkles caused by volume loss.
