What is Botox/Dysport/Xeomin ?
♥ Botox®/Dysport®/Xeomin® is a natural and purified protein that relaxes the muscles by blocking nerve impulses from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles related to expression. These muscles are responsible for expression wrinkles like frown lines, crow's feet, and forehead lines.With a few tiny injections, Botox®/Dysport®/Xeomin® Cosmetic blocks the release of acetylcholine, the chemical that causes muscles to contract. Once the muscles are at rest, the skin becomes smoother, creating a more natural and relaxed appearance.
♥It is prudent to follow some simple guidelines before treatment that can make all the difference between a fair and great result, by reducing some possible side effect associated with the injections. We realize that this is not always possible. However, minimizing these risks is always desirable.
-Avoid Alcoholic beverages at least 1 week prior to treatment (Alcohol may thin the blood increasing risk of bruising).
-Avoid Anti-inflammatory/Blood Thinning medications ideally, for a period of two (2) weeks before treatment, Medications and supplements such as Aspirin, Vitamin E, Ginkgo Biloba, St. John’s Worth, Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil, Aleve, Vioxx, and other NSAIDS are all blood thinning and increase the risk of bruising/swelling after injections.
-Schedule Botox/Dysport/Xeomin appointment at least 2 weeks prior to a special event which may be occurring, i.e., wedding, vacation, etc. It is not desirable to have a very special event occurring and be bruised from an injection, which could have been avoided. -Be sure that you will be able to remain in an upright position for 4 hours after Botox/Dysport/Xeomin treatment.
