Are anti wrinkle injections the same as Botox?
Anti wrinkle injections and Botox are the SAME exact thing. Botulinum toxin is the scientific name for anti-wrinkle injectables. Scientific research found Botox to diminish fine lines and wrinkles in 1970’s. Since Botox was the first botulinum toxin on the market, Botox is commonly referred to as the brand name for all anti wrinkle injection procedures. However, since the 1970’s there has been numerous scientific studies to improve and upgrade Botulinum toxins. Fast Forwarding to the 2020’s, the market now carries other brands such as Xeomin, Dysport, and Juvederm.
Is there anything I need to prepare before my injections?
A week before injections, you should avoid taking the following medications: Aspirin, Vit E, Ginseng,Ginkgo Biloba, Fish Oil, St. John’s Wort. By stopping these medications, you minimize the risk of bruising for the procedure. Please consult with your primary physician before discontinuing any medication.
When will I see results?
You can expect to see results after your first treatment. It may take two or four days before the weakening of muscle and movement is starting to stop; however the maximum effectiveness usually appears within 10-14 calendar days.
Are injections painful?
Injections with a very small needle typically don’t cause any pain at all. Some patients report feeling stinging, but it isn’t painful overall and the sensation goes away quickly. It only takes seconds for your injections.
