Injectables Q & A
What are the benefits of injectables?
Botox and Xeomin are FDA-approved, anti-aging injectables that are designed to soften lines and wrinkles caused by frequent muscle movements. The groundbreaking science behind these injectables can help minimize the appearance of:
- Crow’s feet near your eyes
- Moderate-to-severe forehead lines
- Frown lines between your brows
Your Botox or Xeomin treatment can also benefit you by smoothing out smile lines around your mouth and softening the appearance of your jawline. Treatments are tailored to you and your desired outcome, so you can expect the results you want.
How do injectables work?
Botox, as well as Xeomin, are botulinum-based injectable treatments. These neurotoxins block the release of chemicals that lead to muscle contractions and frequent twitching.
As a result, the targeted muscles relax while surrounding muscles continue to function as normal. This effect allows your skin to smooth out where wrinkles and grooves form while still allowing you to make your natural expressions.
Does it hurt to get injectables?
Both Botox and Xeomin can cause a slight stinging or pinching sensation when they’re injected, but most patients tolerate this sensation well. The practitioners at The Women's Center at Life Point Medical have extensive training in precise injection points, so they can ensure your discomfort is minimal.
They may offer a topical numbing cream that you can apply about 20-30 minutes before your scheduled appointment, just to ensure your visit is as comfortable as possible. With no downtime required, you can get right back to work and your daily routine after your Botox or Xeomin service at The Women's Center at Life Point Medical.
How long do the results from injectable treatments last?
Botox and Xeomin are long-lasting. The team at The Women's Center at Life Point Medical usually find that optimal results last for about four months, although you can experience even longer-lasting benefits if you have finer lines and wrinkles.
