Who is a Good Candidate?
Men and women who have lines and creases that make them appear tired, angry, or sad can often benefit from injections. Candidates should be healthy, nonsmokers. Those who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not receive neuromodulator injections, as it is not known how they will affect the unborn baby. A consultation with Dr. Homas can help to decide if treatment with a neuromodulator is right for you.
These treatments are relatively easy and quick, only lasting about 15-20 minutes to perform. A topical anesthetic can be applied to the treatment area to ensure a comfortable treatment experience. Then, a very small, fine needle will be used to inject the neuromodulator into the treatment areas.
Recovery and Results
There is no downtime required after these injections, so you can feel free to go about your daily routine. However, it is recommended that patients avoid very strenuous activities for the rest of day. Redness and swelling may occur at the treatment site, but should resolve quickly. Results from your injections can last from 3-6 months before a touch-up appointment is needed.
