Are you tired of looking in the mirror and noticing nothing but those lines between your eyes or those forehead creases? “Expression lines,” such as frown lines, crow’s feet, and brow furrows are some of the most bothersome and earliest signs of facial aging. They make us look irritable, tired, or worried even when we’re not.
With the skillful injection of Anti-Wrinkle Injections like Botox, Dysport and Xeomin, the expert injectors at Luxe MD Aesthetics can help your facial muscles relax, smoothing expression lines and helping you look younger, better rested, and more attractive.

Anti-Wrinkle Injections are a type of injectable formulated with botulinum toxin that minimizes wrinkles by temporarily inhibiting muscle movement. When they are injected into the targeted areas, Anti-Wrinkle Injections cause the underlying muscles to relax, which gradually smooths the appearance of wrinkles in the overlying skin.
Anti-Wrinkle Injections specifically target lines on the face that are caused by muscle movement, called “dynamic wrinkles.” Dynamic wrinkles become deeply ingrained on the face over time due to repetitive movements and facial expressions. Common dynamic wrinkles include crow’s feet, which are wrinkles near the eyes caused by squinting, and deep vertical lines at the center of the eyebrows (“eleven lines”) that develop from frowning.
The most popular Anti-Wrinkle Injection is Botox, however, Luxe MD Aesthetics also carries Xeomin and Dysport. These work the same way as Botox but vary slightly in their formula and the length of time they last. The expert injector will go over the options with you during an initial consultation to determine which is best suited for you.
Botox is the most well-known Anti-Wrinkle Injection simply because it’s been around the longest. Compared to the other Anti-Wrinkle Injections, Botox is “heavier” so it doesn’t spread around as easily. This means that it’s best suited for target areas, such as the area between the brows. For Dysport, the formulation differs from Botox, which allows for it to spread more easily. This means it’s a great treatment for wider areas where wrinkles are present, such as the forehead. This Anti-Wrinkle Injection is also a great alternative for patients who’ve stopped responding to Botox. Xeomin acts much like Botox, but the formulation differs because it consists of only one ingredient which lessens the possibility of having an allergic reaction.
Anti-Wrinkle Injections are an excellent choice for crow’s feet, forehead creases, frown lines and down turned corners of the mouth. The effects of Botox, Dysport and Xeomin last around three to four months for most patients but this is also dependent on many factors including body chemistry.
Although Anti-wrinkle Injections are effective for reversing the clock, they are less effective for addressing wrinkles caused by decreased facial volume and elasticity of the skin.
Luxe MD Aesthetics offers a wide range of Dermal Fillers for every budget that are specifically designed to treat the areas of the face. Depending on your specific concerns, you may benefit from one or the other, or a combination of both Anti-Wrinkle Injections and Dermal Fillers.
During your consultation, the expert injector will help you decide which type of Anti-Wrinkle Injection would be best for you. Some considerations that will be taken into account include:
Treatments with Anti-Wrinkle Injections are quick and done in-office. Once a treatment plan is agreed upon, the expert injector will determine the best site for your injections to ensure they are done safely and effectively. There is minimal pain associated but the use of a numbing anesthetic can be discussed if desired.
During a treatment with Botox, Xeomin or Dysport, the expert injector will insert a thin needle into the skin to the underlying muscles. A tiny amount of botulinum toxin will be released and disrupt the neuroreceptors found in the muscles. The number of injections required to achieve your goals will depend on several factors, including how many areas are being treated.
Results generally take around seven to 14 days to become apparent after an Anti-Wrinkle Injection treatment. As the muscles relax in the treated areas, you’ll notice your wrinkles begin to smooth out. The effects typically last for around three to six months before muscle movement returns and lines reappear. Anti-Wrinkle Injection treatments can be scheduled at regular intervals to maintain their beneficial effects.
The thin needle inserted will produce a small amount of discomfort and bruising may occur. However, bruising is only temporary and any pain felt can be relieved with over-the-counter pain medications.
As we get older, having a few facial lines can be endearing and add character to your face. But it’s no secret that many of us would prefer to keep them at a minimum. Without surgical intervention, it can be challenging to reverse the appearance of wrinkles once you have them. There are lifestyle changes you can make to slow down their appearance but if time is not on your side you should consider Anti-Wrinkle Injections. After all, the best wrinkle is the one you never got!
