Frequently Asked Questions
1.How do Botox, Xeomin and Dysport Work ?
Facial expression, e.g. frowning and smiling, requires muscle contraction just underneath the skin. Over time, sun exposure, repeated and consistent muscle contraction in the face can cause loss of elasticity of the skin. This process results in wrinkles. Botox, Xeomin and Dysport injections simply relax the muscle’s ability to contract, thus causing the overlying skin to relax giving a smooth appearance to the observer.
2.Is the procedure painful ? How about the downtime ?
For most patients, the injections are painless and require no local anesthesia. The process is over in 10-15 minutes and there is no recovery time. Since there are little or no side effects one is able to return to normal activities immediately following the appointment.
3.When can I expect to see the results ? For how long ?
Unlike derm-fillers, patients will start to see full results in 5-7 days, and will enjoy the benefits for 3-5 months. As with any medical condition,those who are compliant and receiving serial injections should enjoy longer lasting results.
