Botox, xeomin, dysport
Botox, Xeomin and Dysport (Neurotoxins) work by selectively and precisely relaxing wrinkle-causing muscles. They are used to treat both fine lines and soften deeper lines between your eyebrows, on your forehead, elevens and your crow’s feet.
Through a quick procedure with minimal discomfort, a tiny needle is used to inject the Botox, Xeomin or Dysport (Neurotoxins) in the area(s) of concern. The treated muscles start to relax within 1 to 2 days and reach their maximum degree of relaxation within 2 weeks. Results typically last 3 to 4 months.
To decrease the risk of bruising, we recommend avoiding the following for 3 days prior to your treatment (unless medically contraindicated):
Herbal supplements: Vitamin E, St. John’s Wort, Garlic, Ginkgo, Ginseng
Any supplements or medication that increases the chances of blood thinning
If you have a history of any neurological or neuromuscular conditions, a consultation is required with your provider prior to treatment.
Do not touch area or apply make-up immediately following treatment Remain upright for 4 hours
Avoid exercise for 24 hours
Avoid tight hats or headbands for 24 hours
Arnica gel or tablets can be used to reduce bruising and swelling
Do not use facial massager (ex clarisonic, jade roller) for 1 week
Do not receive additional skin treatments (lasers, microneedling, facial, etc) or any treatment that requires you to put your head in a face cradle for 2 weeks
Do not massage the injection sites
Yes, the contraindications for neurotoxins include:
Pregnancy or breastfeeding
Anaphylactic allergy to cow’s milk protein (Dysport)
Anaphylactic allergy to egg (Botox)
Medications that interfere with blood coagulation
Patients with skin infections, skin conditions, or muscle weakness may not be a candidate for treatment.
Patients that have had previous adverse reactions to Botulinum Toxin Type A may not be a candidate for treatment.
Post treatment you can expect the following:
Red “mosquito bite” bumps that will subside in 30 minutes
Potential bruising (for up to a week) at the injection site
First time botox clients: you may experience a minor headache post treatment
You can expect to start seeing results in 3-5 days and 2 weeks for the full effects. We recommend waiting the full two weeks before requesting a touch-up appointment.
Neurotoxin results will last 3-4 months but depend on an individuals’ metabolism, lifestyle, and activity level;
movement to the muscle will gradually return.
