While aging is a natural process, it’s also perfectly normal to want to seek treatment for a more youthful, radiant appearance the older we get. At Musick Dermatology, we’re happy to recommend the toxins that can be applied to your skin to help restore the youthful glow you’ve been wanting back.
Not only can these types of toxins help to smooth out wrinkles and eliminate signs of aging but they can also help to fill missing volume in areas of the face that have been sunken in, restoring fullness to the face. We are excited to offer our patients three different kinds of toxins that can help them achieve their cosmetic goals:
BOTOX injections are one of the most popular treatments to reduce the appearance of aging in the country. Made with botulinum toxins, these injections are intended to relax the muscles in the face, resulting in a nearly invisible appearance of wrinkles. The neurotoxins in BOTOX are specifically designed to treat lines on the forehead, crow’s feet, frown lines, and wrinkles that naturally develop in other areas of the face.
Depending on your cosmetic goals, the number of BOTOX injections needed during your treatment times can vary, but one session is all a patient needs. The results from one session usually last between three to six months. To learn more about our BOTOX procedures, click here.
Similar to BOTOX, Xeomin is another type of treatment that relaxes the muscles to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of again, however, it often achieves longer-lasting results. Made from the same toxin as BOTOX, Xeomin lacks the couple of extra proteins that BOTOX has and is best used to eliminate the lines formed due to aging between the brows. Lasting up to six months at the least, Xeomin can also be applied on the chin, neck, and nose. Learn more about Xeomin here.
If you’re concerned about frown lines around the mouth and are looking for a way to improve your smile and the way it appears on your face, DAXXIFY might be the perfect treatment for you. This injectable neurotoxin is another kind of treatment that relaxes muscles in the face to reduce wrinkles, but it’s specifically designed to smooth out frown lines. This can bring a more noticeable and illuminated appearance to the mouth area while smiling or laughing. To see how DAXXIFY can benefit you, click here.
How Do I Know Which Treatment Is Right For Me?
Each neurotoxin treatment was made to target specific areas of the face, so if you’re unsure of which injectable you’re interested in getting, consult with us today to find out! Each patient gets a free, personalized consultation where our team will be sure to inform you about all the risks, benefits, and details that come with neurotoxin injectables.
What Are the Risks of Toxin Injectables?
Because these treatments involve injections and needles, patients may experience pain, swelling, or bruising at the injection site that often disappear after a few days post-treatment. Headaches may also occur. If you have treatment near the eyes or upper face, you may experience droopy eyelids or watery and dry eyes. These can all be managed and treated with proper care and consultation from our team.
What Are the Benefits of Toxin Injectables?
Despite the risks, many patients who commit to treatments such as BOTOX, Xeomin, and DAXXIFY are not only satisfied with the opportunity to achieve their facial cosmetic goals but also experience increased confidence following their treatment. Looking and feeling more youthful and bright thanks to their neurotoxin procedures, many patients have enjoyed becoming more comfortable in their own skin.
