Injectables Q & A

What are injectables?

Injectables are treatments that enable clients to avoid invasive cosmetic surgery procedures. They restore youthful vitality to aging skin and replicate the effects of surgeries such as brow lifts.

What kinds of injectables are available?

There are several types of injectable treatments, some of which are fillers that plump up lines and wrinkles, others that use substances that affect the nerves to reduce the signs of aging.

Dr. Walker uses Botox and Xeomin at Best Plastic Surgery Practice, as he finds they produce the most noticeable and natural looking results.

Botox is one of the original injectable aesthetic treatments, and there is now considerable evidence of its efficacy in reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Xeomin is an alternative product that uses the same technique as Botox to reduce the signs of aging.

The active ingredient in Botox blocks signals sent by nerves in the face, effectively paralyzing the facial muscles and preventing them from contracting. This temporary paralysis makes the muscles in your face relax, smoothing out lines and wrinkles in the following areas.

  • Forehead
  • Between the eyebrows (frown lines)
  • Around the eyes (Crow’s feet)

Xeomin is effective in smoothing frown lines between the eyebrows.

How long do the effects of injectable treatments last?

The effects of Botox and Xeomin treatments typically last around four months, but this can vary between patients. In order to retain the aesthetic benefits of your injectable treatment, you need to see Dr. Walker regularly every quarter, or at the intervals he recommends.

If you don’t renew your injectable treatment you won’t suffer from accelerated aging or suddenly find you have more wrinkles than ever, so you’re free to have treatments when it suits you.

Will my face look and feel normal after an injectable treatment?

You may have read about injectables causing people’s faces to appear unnatural, or frozen into one expression. If you’re concerned about this, Dr. Walker can put your mind at rest.

As an expert in facial anatomy and having many years of experience using injectable treatments, he can use precisely the right amount of Botox or Xeomin and place it in the perfect position to ensure your face feels and looks natural. The only effect is the reduction of your lines and wrinkles.
