What are Wrinkle Reducers?
At the Facial Plastics Center, Dr. Lindsey Goyal offers advanced solutions to combat the signs of aging. One of the most popular and effective treatments is injections with wrinkle reducers. Botox, Jeuveau, and Dysport are all different brand names of injectable wrinkle reducers. This non-surgical treatment has revolutionized the field of facial rejuvenation, providing patients with smoother, more youthful-looking skin.
How Do Wrinkle Reducers Work?
Wrinkle Reducers work by temporarily inhibiting muscle contractions that contribute to the formation of wrinkles and lines on the face. Repeated muscle contractions over time can cause facial wrinkles such as frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. Targeted relaxation of muscles with wrinkle reducers results in smoother, less prominent wrinkles and a more refreshed and rested appearance.
Wrinkle reducers primarily affect the muscles at the injection site, leaving surrounding muscles unaffected, allowing for natural facial expressions. The effects are temporary and gradually wear off over time as the body metabolizes the toxin. Typically, the results of wrinkle reducer injections can last between three to four months, although individual variations may occur.
What are the Benefits of Injections with Wrinkle Reducers?
- Wrinkle Reduction: Injections target dynamic wrinkles caused by repeated facial muscle movements, such as crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines.
- Non-Surgical Solution: Wrinkle reducer injections are a non-invasive treatment, meaning there are no incisions or extensive recovery periods. They can be conveniently performed during a brief office visit.
- Quick Procedure: Wrinkle reducer injections are typically completed within minutes, allowing you to return to your daily activities immediately afterward.
- Natural-Looking Results: Wrinkle reducer injections provide subtle yet noticeable results, ensuring a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance without looking overdone.
- Versatile Treatment: Besides wrinkle reduction, Wrinkle reducers can also be used to address other concerns like excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), migraines, and jaw clenching (bruxism).
What is the Wrinkle Reducer Injection Procedure?
During the wrinkle reducer injection procedure, board certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Lindsey Goyal will carefully administer the treatment in targeted areas. The process involves the following steps:
- Consultation: Dr. Goyal will assess your facial structure, discuss your goals, and determine the appropriate treatment plan.
- Preparation: Dr. Goyal will first cleanse the treatment area. Sometimes she may apply topical anesthetic to enhance your comfort during the procedure.
- Injection: Using a fine needle, Dr. Lindsey Goyal will strategically inject small amounts of Botox into the specific muscles responsible for causing wrinkles.
- Post-Treatment: Following the injections, you may experience slight redness or swelling, which will subside quickly. As a precautionary measure, we recommend against lying down for 4 hours, and heavy exercise for 24 hours post injection.
What Should I Expect After Treatment?
After wrinkle reducer injections, you can expect to notice the initial effects within several days, with the full results appearing within two weeks. The treated areas will appear smoother, and the wrinkles significantly reduced. The results typically last for three to four months, and regular maintenance sessions can help prolong the benefits.
Are Wrinkle Reducer Injections Safe?
