Wrinkle Reduction Q & A

Who should consider wrinkle-reduction treatment?

Anyone bothered by lines and wrinkles is a candidate for wrinkle-reducing treatment. Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin have similar formulations that are particularly effective on expression lines and creases. 

These occur when you repeatedly smile, squint, frown, or make other facial movements that etch permanent lines into your skin.

The formulas contain a purified form of a neurotoxin that temporarily halts the muscle activity contributing to these expression lines. As a result, lines are softened so you look naturally smoother.

What skin complaints does wrinkle reduction address?

Wrinkle reduction addresses the wrinkles around your eyes and on your forehead. Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin can:

  • Smooth out crow’s feet
  • Soften forehead furrows
  • Lift low brows
  • Erase the 11s between your eyebrows
  • Improve the appearance of neck cords

The team may suggest adding facial fillers along with your wrinkle-reducing injections. Fillers are another type of injectable that add volume under your skin to smooth out lines and creases and enhance your natural features.

How do I know which wrinkle-reduction treatment is right for me?

Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin have slightly different formulations. The primary difference is that Xeomin does not contain certain proteins that Dysport and Botox do. This means that if you have an intolerance to Dysport or Botox, you may still be able to tolerate Xeomin. 

Some people also find the effects of Dysport and Xeomin show up a little sooner than they do for Botox.

Are wrinkle-reduction treatments painful?

Wrinkle reducers are applied via injection, so you feel a slight pinch during each treatment. The treatment sessions are quite short and the needles are extremely thin, so most people find the sessions quite tolerable. 

If you have a concern about discomfort, talk to your provider, and they can apply a topical anesthetic to help reduce sensation.

When will I see results, and how long do they last?

Depending on the formula that’s used, you can expect to see results start to show in 24-48 hours, with optimal results appearing in about seven days.

Your wrinkles remain softer and smooth for about 3-4 months, after which you can visit the office for a refresher treatment.
