Your face is front and center; it’s the first thing people notice about you, so if expression lines have begun to define your face, it’s likely that they have also begun to determine your confidence level in your appearance. At The Face Place in Baton Rouge, LA, we have a solution that can erase wrinkles and improve your confidence during a single treatment session. We offer anti-wrinkle injections that contain neurotoxins to temporarily smooth lines and wrinkles for several months at a time.
Neurotoxins Baton Rouge, Louisiana
On a scientific level, neurotoxins are purified proteins. You may have heard of the neurotoxin called botulinum toxin A, the active ingredient in Botox and other neuromodulators that works similarly like Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau. This highly purified protein provides a safe way to relax facial muscles to smooth lines and wrinkles.
In layman’s terms, neurotoxins are anti-aging ingredients and, when administered in an injectable form, can improve the appearance by reducing and even eliminating wrinkles altogether. They can smooth the most common expression lines, including frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines.
At The Face Place, we offer Xeomin, an effective neuromodulator known for its high-quality, pure formula. Unlike other neuromodulators, Xeomin injections contain a purified formula free of any additional proteins, making it a good solution for patients concerned about what they inject into their bodies and those with allergy concerns.
Xeomin is FDA-approved to treat frown lines and can help improve your appearance by relaxing the muscles in the treatment area to create a well-rested and younger-looking appearance. It is an effective injectable that can smooth mild to more severe expression lines and help you maintain a natural-looking appearance.
Xeomin injections will only relax the muscles in your desired treatment area. During treatment, we’ll administer the necessary units to smooth your wrinkles while maintaining the integrity of your appearance. Regular treatments every few months can help keep lines and wrinkles at bay long-term.
The Treatment Process
Scheduling a pre-treatment consultation before beginning the treatment process is important. To do this, we will evaluate your desired treatment areas and ask you some questions about your medical history. It’s important that you are not currently nursing, pregnant, or allergic to neurotoxins.
If you’ve ever experienced a treatment with a neuromodulator in the past and had a poor reaction, it’s important that you provide those details so that we know how to safely move forward with your treatment plan. If you want to treat multiple areas during one treatment, your consultation is the time to let us know so we can design your plan accordingly.
After your consultation, we can schedule your treatment. The best way to prepare your body and skin for your injections is to avoid sunburn in the planned treatment area, drink plenty of water before your appointment, and temporarily discontinue anti-inflammatory medications and supplements. Blood thinning supplements and medications can negatively affect your results. You should also avoid alcohol consumption for at least 24 hours before your appointment.
On the day of your appointment, you won’t have to set aside a significant amount of time for your treatment. The entire treatment process takes 10 to 20 minutes. Anti-aging injectables with neurotoxins are also often referred to as lunchtime injectables since the treatment process is quick and doesn’t interrupt your daily routine.
To prepare your skin, we will ensure it is sanitized and then discuss applying a pre-treatment numbing cream. Most patients do not require a numbing solution, but we have it on hand for those who prefer it. Injections are quick, and after making some strategic injections into the muscles responsible for your expression lines, your treatment will be complete.
You won’t have to prepare for downtime after your treatment and can resume most of your normal daily activities. However, you must be mindful of certain products, activities, and environments that could disrupt your results. Don’t plan any workouts for 24 hours after your appointment. Avoid sun exposure and anything that could increase your body temperature.
Continue to avoid alcohol and anti-inflammatory supplements and medications for at least another 24 hours. We will give you a thorough list of instructions, so you don’t forget anything. All the aftercare instructions are only temporary, and you’ll be able to resume normal activities and medication or supplement routine within a few days.
After your treatment, you can expect results within two to seven days of your injections, depending on which product we use to smooth your lines and wrinkles. Your results will continue to improve for 30 days post-treatment. The neurotoxins take a few days to effectively relax your muscles, and when they take full effect, you’ll see expression lines soften. Your regular expressions will still be visible, just far less exaggerated.
Planning for Follow-Up Treatments
Once you achieve your results, you’ll see improvements in the appearance of your expression lines and enjoy smoother and younger-looking skin for three to six months. On average, results last approximately three to four months. As your body metabolizes the product, your expression lines will gradually reappear. At that point, you can schedule a follow-up treatment to maintain your results and combat expression lines long-term.
Adding wrinkle-relaxing injectables to your anti-aging treatment plan will significantly improve how your complexion looks and your confidence levels. We will custom tailor a treatment plan with Xeomin to help you get the upper hand on the aging process and restore your youthful-looking skin.
