Neurotoxins offer a minimally invasive way to smooth away wrinkles and achieve a more youthful appearance. At Stillwater Aesthetics and Wellness, medical director John Lassetter, MD, and his experienced aesthetic team provide injections of Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin® to temporarily halt the muscle activity that causes creases when you make expressions. The result is a more relaxed, refreshed appearance. Call the Idaho Falls, Idaho, office today to set up an appointment, or use the online tool to schedule.
The popular brands of neuromodulators include Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport. All are FDA-approved to smooth out facial lines, especially on the forehead and around the eyes.
Their primary ingredient is a derivative of the neurotoxin botulinum toxin. This toxin interferes with the signaling between your brain and muscles.
When a member of the aesthetic team at Stillwater Aesthetics and Wellness injects one of the neuromodulators into treatment areas, it works quickly to block cell signals traveling from your brain to your facial muscles.
The areas affected by the treated muscle smooth out, and lines begin to fade. Your skin relaxes, so you get a more rested, less pensive, and more youthful appearance.
When used for cosmetic purposes, these injectable neurotoxins smooth out the following:
You start to notice results in about 48 hours, depending on the type of neuromodulator used. Full results usually appear within 10-14 days.
You sit down with a team member at Stillwater Aesthetics and Wellness to discuss the areas of your face that you’d like to target. They may apply ice or a numbing cream to make the injections more comfortable, but most patients tolerate the treatment well.
You may feel slight stinging when the injections are first applied, but the sensation fades quickly. Your provider may ask you to make expressions at points during your treatment to determine the best places to apply the injections.
Your appointment should take no more than 30 minutes. You don’t have to schedule downtime afterward, so you can go back to work or other daily activities right after your session.
Neurotoxin-containing injectables usually keep your face wrinkle-free for about 3-4 months. As your lines and wrinkles return over time, you can schedule repeat treatments to help you maintain your youthful results. The team at Stillwater Aesthetics and Wellness can set up a treatment schedule for you.
