Botox-Neurotoxins

Botox xeomin providence

Your eyes are the “window to your soul.” Sadly, as we age, the fine, delicate skin around the eyes is often the first area to reveal the passage of years as crow’s feet, drooping, heavy brows, wrinkles, and lines appear.

Neurotoxins such as Botox, Xeomin, Dysport and Jeaveau are based on botulinum toxin. These injections can be used to restore and rejuvenate your appearance, smoothing the area so you look as young and fresh as you feel.  We offer Botox injections for Gummy smile, Bunny lines, excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), migraine, neck bands and lip flips.

Am I a candidate for a Botox® procedure?

Men and women above the  the ages of 18 and 70 who would like to temporarily improve the appearance of frown lines, crow’s feet or forehead lines may be good candidates for Botox®  or other neurotoxin treatment.

 

Botox® Consultation

At Balencia, you will start with a consultation with a provider whether you are new to botulinum toxins or have had it before to ensure safety and formulate a proper treatment plan. and any supplements you may be taking. At the end of the consultation, you will have a clear understanding of the
amount of Botox you will be getting, and where you will be getting it.

Botox is not recommended for lactating mothers or during pregnancy.

How to Prepare for Botox® Treatment

 Eat a Light Meal and Hydrate

You’ll feel better, a full stomach will soothe your nerves, and hydrated skin will respond much better to treatment.

Wash Your Face

Wash your face before your appointment. Remove as much make-up and skincare products as possible. It’s important to start with a clean face to help identify target areas for the injections. Make-up is not sterile and  may contain bacteria.

What to expect during  Botox® Treatment

  • The area will be cleaned with alcohol
  • The injector will map the areas  to be treated.
  • A number of injections will be performed with a very small needle.
  • Most people do not feel pain during the procedure. However, if you are sensitive to pain, numbing cream can be applied

What to expect after  Botox®  Treatment

  • Some people may feel mild headache after treatment with Botox or other neuro-modulators. You can take tylenol if necessary
  • Mild bruising  in the injection areas especially around eyes
  • Eyelid droop – rare but possible
  • In general, you will start noticing results between 5-y days after injections. Dysport kicks in within 1-2 days. Full results are generally seen by 2 weeks.
  • A follow up appointment is highly recommended

What to do or not do after  Botox® Treatment

We recommend  following to decrease the risk of complications such as eyelid droop after neurotoxin injecions.

  • Do not rub  treated areas on the day  of treatment
  • Do not lay down for 2-3 hours after the treatment.
  • Avoid strenuous activity for 24 hours after treatment
  • Avoid applying make-up in treated areas on the day of treatment
