Injectables like Botox, Xeomin and Dysport are among the most popular cosmetic treatments in North America, with an estimated 3 million treatments completed annually. The length of an injectable treatment is very quick, about 5-10 minutes, but we take our time discussing with you your desired outcome, providing full answers to your questions, and completing a thorough facial analysis.
Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are leading injectables for neuromodulation. Natural, purified proteins, they relax the muscles and allow for a smoother, softer-looking appearance. After a comprehensive assessment, we will inject a therapeutic amount of product into the desired muscle groups. The treatment itself is quick and tolerated well for most people. Topical numbing is available if needed.
Avoid laying down and stay upright immediately after treatment for the first 4 hours. Strenuous exercise and activities that put pressure on the treated areas such as: facials, massage, bicycle helmets, etc. should be avoided for twenty-four hours following your treatment. We will schedule a follow-up visit two weeks after your treatment to evaluate your results. Before any injectable, laser or surgical appointment here at Baker Rejuvenation Centre, we request that you discontinue the use of aspirin, ibuprofen, multivitamins, omega supplements and alcohol for 3 days before treatment to reduce the risk of swelling and bruising. Please check with your Physician before discontinuing use of any blood thinners. Only receive treatments when you are feeling well. Please keep the treatment areas clean and wait at least 1 hour before applying makeup – mineral based makeup is recommended.
You will start to see a difference within 3-10 days after your treatment, with the full effect of your wrinkle treatment evident within 14 days. The results should last between three to four months. After repeat treatments, you may find that the effects last longer and that you require a smaller dose.
Forehead lines, crow’s feet, frown lines, orange peel chin, and wrinkles caused by strong facial muscles can be quickly softened using Botox or Dysport. With similar formulations, both injectables give you a softened appearance – even a mini eyelid and brow lift! It is also useful for enhancing your smile by decreasing the action of muscles that lead to a “gummy” smile. The injectables target specific facial muscles that cause you to have a tired, angry, or stressed look by temporarily reducing the action of the muscle. In addition to the cosmetic uses, Botox, Xeomin and Dysport are also effective therapies for patients suffering from excessive sweating, migraine/tension headaches, and spasms of the eye muscles.
