BOTOX® / Dysport® / Xeomin®
Injectable treatments are a simple, easy, and popular way to significantly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. For patients seeking to address facial cosmetic concerns such as crow’s feet, vertical lines between the eyebrows, deep forehead creases, or frown lines, the line of injectables offered by Philadelphia plastic surgeon Dr. Louis Bucky can serve as a non-surgical alternative for facial rejuvenation. BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport™, and Xeomin® are all designed to give patients smoother, younger-looking skin.
Reducing Signs of Age
Since the underlying cause of many facial lines and wrinkles is the uncontrolled contraction of facial muscles, BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport™, and Xeomin® are all injectables that are used to relax these muscles and temporarily reduce muscle contraction. By alleviating the stress and pressure placed on these hyperdynamic lines, patients can gain a refreshed and rested appearance.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is most commonly used to treat both men and women who have wrinkles that are dramatized by facial animation and emotional expression. Dysport™ offers similar benefits to BOTOX® Cosmetic and is typically used to treat the vertical lines between the eyebrows in moderate-to-severe cases. Xeomin® is a new injectable treatment recently approved by the FDA that is primarily beneficial for frown lines. In addition, both BOTOX® injections and Xeomin® have helped patients who suffer from excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis). During the consultation process, Dr. Bucky can help you decide which injectable can best achieve your individual cosmetic goals.
Treatment with Injectables
Each treatment utilizes a very fine needle that is carefully and strategically injected into the target area. The entire injection process for each treatment typically lasts no longer than 5-15 minutes, depending on the number of areas being treated. The procedure is often so simple and quick, many patients elect to have their injectable treatments performed during their lunch hour.
Recovery and Results from Injectables
With each of these injectables, there is usually little to no downtime for the patient. Immediately before treatment, a topical anesthetic may be used to numb the injection site. Cold compresses are also used before and after treatment to help ensure comfort. In some cases, patients may experience temporary redness or swelling shortly after treatment, though these symptoms should quickly dissipate. Most of Dr. Bucky’s patients return to work or their normal daily activities immediately after treatment. The results from these injectables typically begin to be seen within the first 48 hours after the procedure and generally last 3-4 months. Results can be easily maintained with follow-up treatments.
