Wrinkles Q & A

What type of wrinkles do injectables treat?

Various wrinkles may share the common attribute of making you look older than you feel, but not all wrinkles are the same. The team at McGuiness Dermatology & Aesthetics offers anti-wrinkle injections specifically formulated to treat moderate to severe wrinkles caused by muscle contractions, such as:

  • Frown lines between the brows
  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Forehead lines and wrinkles

If you have wrinkles caused by other sources, including sun damage or gravity, the team at McGuiness Dermatology & Aesthetics may recommend another treatment, such as dermal fillers.

What causes crow’s feet and frown lines?

When you smile, squint, or concentrate, certain facial muscles contract beneath your skin. Over time, the temporary lines that appear during these facial expressions become etched on your face in the form of wrinkles.

Cosmetic injectables such as Botox, Dysport, and XEOMIN temporarily relax the muscles responsible for these contractions. The result is smoother, wrinkle-free skin.

How do Botox, Dysport, and XEOMIN reduce wrinkles?

Botox, Dysport, and XEOMIN all contain slightly different chemical variations of the botulinum toxin protein. If the thought of injecting a toxin in your face makes you nervous, don’t worry. These medicines are highly purified and carefully formulated to meet strict medical standards.

When your provider at McGuiness Dermatology & Aesthetics injects a small amount of one of these medicines into strategic locations on your face, the underlying muscles stop contracting. This leads to temporary wrinkle reduction that lasts three to four months, depending on the medicine.

What should I expect from an anti-wrinkle injection treatment?

The team at McGuiness Dermatology & Aesthetics begins with a comprehensive consultation. They evaluate your skin and discuss your specific concerns and ideal image. Then, they explain the advantages and disadvantages of each type of cosmetic injectable so you can make an informed decision.

Botox, Dysport, and XEOMIN treatments take only 15 minutes and don’t require downtime for recovery. You can pop into McGuiness Dermatology & Aesthetics on your lunch break and head right back to work!

You should begin to see results within a week, depending on the type of injection you get. Optimal results appear about a month after treatment.

Side effects are mild and typically fade within a day or two, but you may experience a headache, vision problems, or discomfort at the injection site.
