How Do BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport, and Xeomin Work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport, and Xeomin are neuromodulators that work the same way. They contain an active ingredient that temporarily blocks nerve signals and muscle contractions.
Injecting a muscle with a neuromodulator causes it to relax. As a result, overlying wrinkles look smoother and less noticeable. These treatments can also work preventatively to delay the formation of lines.
Neuromodulator Treatment Areas
Wrinkle relaxers such as BOTOX® Cosmetic effectively treat dynamic lines and wrinkles. They can be injected in nearly any areas that you want to tweak, including:
- Forehead creases
- Wrinkles around the eyes known as crow’s feet
- Glabellar lines between the eyebrows
- Above the lips or at the corners of the mouth
You can also rely on neuromodulators to balance facial asymmetry or to relax prominent vertical neck bands and jaw muscles. Discuss your specific concerns with Dr. Castor to learn more.
Ideal Candidates for BOTOX® Cosmetic and Similar Treatments
Most adults are ideal candidates for treatments like BOTOX® Cosmetic, but they are not right for everyone. You should not receive these injections if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or if you have a skin infection at the treatment site.
A consultation is the best way to learn if neuromodulators are a good option for you. Dr. Castor will ask about your relevant medical history, the concerns you have, and the results you hope to achieve. If you are not a candidate for BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport, or Xeomin, another service may be recommended.
Your BOTOX® Cosmetic, Xeomin, or Dysport Appointment
Neuromodulator treatments are relatively quick and painless. The entire service takes as little as 10 minutes. Patients report feeling minimal discomfort during a BOTOX ® Cosmetic, Xeomin, or Dysport appointment.
Dr. Castor performs the injectable treatments at Artisan Aesthetics. He will use a thin needle to administer injections in the areas of concern. Anesthetic is not necessary for this minimally invasive process. However, a topical numbing cream may be applied to enhance your comfort.
What to Expect After Receiving Wrinkle-Relaxing Injections
There is little to no downtime associated with injectable treatments. You can return to your normal routine after leaving our practice.
Certain behaviors, such as rubbing the treatment area, should be avoided. You will learn more about aftercare during your appointment.
It is possible to experience redness, swelling, bruising, or tenderness at the injection site. These side effects are mild and temporary. Avoiding alcohol and blood-thinning medications before your appointment can help.
BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport, and Xeomin Results
You can expect to enjoy a subtle and natural result from treatments at Artisan Aesthetics. Injections are very technique-sensitive and can look overdone in the wrong hands. Thanks to Dr. Castor’s skill and experience, you will still look like yourself — just with fewer lines.
Most patients see a noticeable improvement within a day or two. The full effect of BOTOX® Cosmetic, Xeomin, and Dysport tends to last up to four months.
Ongoing injections can be administered to maintain your results. Our staff will happily work with you to develop a treatment schedule.
Cost of BOTOX® Cosmetic-Type Injectables in Tampa Bay
