Do you struggle with fine lines, wrinkles, and forehead creases? When patients notice these signs of aging appear on their faces, the initial instinct may be to stock up on an expensive skincare cream. While this can provide certain benefits, it likely won’t reduce age-related changes.
More effective than creams and lotions are cosmetic injectables like Dysport and Xeomin. These wrinkle treatments interact with the nerves and muscles in your face to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. They also subdue facial movement to prevent further signs of aging from developing.
Chetco Medical and Aesthetics in Gold Beach, OR, provides cosmetic injectables for patients who desire a more youthful appearance. Read on to learn more about Dysport and Xeomin injections.
What Are Cosmetic Injectables?
Cosmetic injectables are minimally invasive outpatient treatments that can reduce age-related changes or enhance certain facial features. We offer several types of cosmetic injectables at our Chetco Medical and Aesthetics, including dermal fillers and neuromodulators.
While dermal fillers provide aesthetic benefits by adding hyaluronic acid under the skin, neuromodulators work directly with the nerves and muscles in the face. By subduing facial nerves and limiting muscle movement, neuromodulators can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and prevent further ones from developing.
Keep reading to take a closer look at two popular brands of neuromodulators: Dysport and Xeomin.
Dysport is an abobotulinum toxin type A treatment that is used primarily to reduce age-related changes around the eyes, eyebrows, and forehead.
With the continuous facial expressions that you make every day, fine lines and wrinkles from around your eyes (crow’s feet) and between your eyebrows (glabellar lines). Dysport is an excellent treatment to specifically target crow’s feet and glabellar lines.
Xeomin is an injectable neuromodulator that is often used on the forehead to decrease the appearance and formation of age-related changes. With facial movements like frowning, smiling, and laughing, it is common to develop deep creases across the forehead.
These creases, typically referred to as frown lines, can be greatly diminished with Xeomin injections.
The Benefits of Neuromodulation
Neuromodulators like Dysport and Xeomin provide a variety of cosmetic benefits. This is why they are one of the most popular aesthetic treatments in the world. The benefits of Dysport and Xeomin include the following:
- Reducing wrinkles
- Smoothing fine lines
- Erasing crow’s feet
- Tightening skin
- Minimizing forehead creases
- Preventing further wrinkle development
One of the biggest benefits of neuromodulators is that they can be used on almost any patient. Both men and women can appreciate the results of these cosmetic injectables. Products like Dysport and Xeomin are effective on any skin type and at any age.
While many patients who seek these injections are in their 30s and older, younger patients can see benefits with Dysport and Xeomin as a preventative treatment. Having these injectables administered in your mid-to-late 20s can subdue overactive nerves and muscles that are more likely to create wrinkles.
Frequently Asked Questions About Cosmetic Injectables
Do you have questions or concerns about cosmetic injectables? If you’ve never received Dysport or Xeomin treatment, you probably want to know more about the procedure. Below are some of the most frequently asked questions about cosmetic injectables.
Is a Consultation Needed for Dysport or Xeomin?
You will need to schedule a consultation appointment before your session. This consultation aims to make sure that neuromodulator injectables are the best treatment to meet your needs.
Every patient has different aesthetic concerns. Dysport or Xeomin may not be the right fit for your skin’s issues. If we find that these injections are not the best option, we will discuss any alternatives that may be better suited for you.
Are Anesthetics Used During This Wrinkle Treatment?
Anesthetics are not necessary for cosmetic injectables, but a topical numbing cream may be applied to your injection sites before your treatment. This allows for optimal comfort during your treatment session.
How Long Does a Dysport or Xeomin Session Last?
Patients enjoy Dysport and Xeomin because they are fast and simple procedures. Your wrinkle treatment will last anywhere between 20 and 30 minutes, depending on the number of injection sites. Dysport and Xeomin are both outpatient procedures, which means you will be able to return home immediately after your treatment is complete.
Will I See Results Right Away?
Cosmetic injectables like Dysport and Xeomin produce immediate results. In the hours following your session, your skin will become tighter and facial movement will be limited. For some patients, these results can take a little longer to manifest, but they should not take more than a few days after a session to appear.
Are the Results of This Wrinkle Treatment Permanent?
Dysport and Xeomin injections do not produce permanent results. The neuromodulator effects of these injections will last anywhere from three to four months before they gradually subside. At this point, you will see movement return to your facial skin, and wrinkles may reappear around your eyes or mouth.
To maintain your desired appearance, you can seek further treatments throughout the year.
