About Botox, Dysport & Xeomin
Dynamic wrinkles are wrinkles that form when we smile, frown or get angry. These wrinkles include brow furrows, crow’s feet and laugh lines. After repetition of these facial movements, deep lines and wrinkles will form and become visibly apparent even when not making the corresponding facial expression. Sometimes, these wrinkles may be a result of an overused facial muscle which refuses to relax, holding the crease in place.
These dynamic wrinkles may be addressed with Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin. If the wrinkle is constantly visible, and attributed to loss of skin volume and elasticity, it is what is known as a static wrinkle. While some contouring is achieved, Botox, Dysport and Xeomin will not necessarily restore lost facial volume. Static wrinkles may best be addressed with dermal fillers.
Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are injections that reduce the visibility of dynamic wrinkles and return a relaxed, youthful expression to your face. These injectable treatments are in a class of anti-aging therapies known as neuromodulators, meaning they are derived from the botulinum molecule and administered in small doses directly into facial muscles. They successfully smooth wrinkles by relaxing the muscle responsible for the formation of the wrinkle. Botox, Dysport & Xeomin can effectively target multiple visible signs of aging such as:
- Vertical frown lines
- Crow’s feet
- Other creases around the forehead and brow area
Botox Cosmetic is FDA-approved and is very effective on severe lines found on the face, specifically frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines.
This injection is highly successful when administered between the eyebrows. This provides a natural alternative that minimizes those particular lines and does not affect facial expressions. Dysport can improve glabellar lines, frown lines, forehead wrinkles, bunny lines, and crow’s feet.
Xeomin is a temporary solution to improve moderate to severe frown lines found between the eyebrows. Xeomin is injected into muscles around the eyebrows and smooths out the wrinkles and lines.
How Do BOTOX, Dysport & XEOMIN Work?
Once these neuromodulators are strategically injected by our experienced medical team, the botulinum molecule temporarily blocks chemical signals from reaching nerves. This process relaxes the underlying muscle activity that can cause visible lines and creases. The result is a smoother, younger-looking appearance that can last anywhere from three to six months with optimal treatment. These treatments are typically well-tolerated, and topical anesthetics may be available upon request for increased patient comfort.
Botox, Dysport & Xeomin have been extensively tested for safety and efficacy, and the majority of men and women who are treated with these injectables experience no complications or adverse effects. Injection sites may develop slight bruising, swelling, itching or redness, but these symptoms should only last for a day or so.
Botox, Dysport and Xeomin injections are available for both men and women in the age range of thirty to sixty. An ideal candidate for neuromodulator injections is someone who has:
- Deep lines and wrinkles in their brow or facial area
- Headaches or migraines
- Moderate skin elasticity

Not all types of wrinkles respond the same to neuromodulators, so the best way to determine if these treatments are right for you is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Saini at our Fayetteville office. During your personal consultation, you will work together with Dr. Saini to create a personalized treatment plan that achieves your cosmetic goals as well as fits your unique anatomy.
At this time, you will share what you hope to achieve with a cosmetic facial injection and what your expectations of the treatment are. Dr. Saini will discuss the process and expected results of injections and how they will benefit you. She will then ask you about your medical history, drug allergies, current medications and past surgeries. Dr. Saini will evaluate several factors such as how your goals, skin condition, and medical history correlate. She will use this information to create a customized treatment that directly benefits your unique skin care needs.
This information will also give her a better indicator of your general health and if injections are a safe and healthy option for you. She may suggest alternative solutions that will better achieve your desired outcomes.
This is a good time for you to ask questions or voice any concerns. Dr. Saini is a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in cosmetic surgery and has made multiple contributions to the field of plastic surgery. She cares about her patients and strives to answer their questions, address their concerns and help them leave their consultation feeling confident of their choice.
Prior to the procedure, patients will need to stop taking blood thinning medications, like aspirin, and stop smoking. These procedures are fast and only take about ten to fifteen minutes. The treatment is non-surgical and has minimal downtime, allowing patients to receive these treatments over a lunch break.
When the patient arrives for their treatment, the predetermined injection sites will be cleaned. Dr. Saini will then gently apply the injections into the scientifically pinpointed areas to create positive, natural-looking results. After the injections are administered, Dr. Saini will discuss how to care for the injections sites and your skin. You will then be able to return to your regular schedule.
Botox, Dysport and Xeomin injections are great solutions to many aging problems. Some of the benefits they provide are:
- Diminished appearance in lines and wrinkles
- Youthful restoration
- Facial expressions will no longer appear angry, tired or worried
- Botox injections in brow furrow can help reduce headaches and migraines
How injections benefit each patient will differ but the results are consistently positive and transformative.
There is very little to no downtime required for injections. They are fast, simple and non-surgical. A recovery period is typically unnecessary and people are able to return to work immediately after their treatment. If you are looking for a non-surgical and quick treatment to the minor facial problems that bother you, Botox, Dysport or Xeomin may be the solution for you.
Results will be noticeable within twenty-four to forty-eight hours. While results will depend on the patient’s unique body chemistry, Botox and Xeomin achieve attractive rejuvenation that will last for three to six months. The results of Dysport tend be visible for three months.
Depending on your skin condition and the level of correction needed, multiple treatment sessions may be necessary. While these neuromodulators cannot stop time or the effects of aging, Dr. Saini can create a long-term plan to help you manage wrinkles and retain your smoother, younger-looking skin. Neuromodulator injections have even shown to successfully reduce the formation of new wrinkles in treatment sites.

Dermal fillers are a common procedure to receive alongside neuromodulator injections. Dermal fillers are injections used to add volume back to the soft tissues of the face. Fillers are a gel-like substance that provide natural results that soften the features of the face.
Common areas dermal fillers are applied to are the lips, cheeks, midface and chin. They can be used in these areas to add volume and reduce wrinkles. Dermal fillers are not as effective on dynamic wrinkles compared to l Botox, Dysport or Xeomin but they are highly effective at reducing the visibility of deep creases, wrinkles and folds.
Men and women of all walks of life receive dermal fillers to contour their faces. Dermal fillers are an excellent alternative to invasive surgical procedures that can require up to three weeks or more of downtime. Dermal fillers are commonly injected over a fifteen minute period and require no recovery time.
Over the years, plastic surgeons have developed different types of fillers that address specific aging concerns of the face. These fillers include:
This filler can be used to improve the volume of the cheeks and contour the face.
Made with calcium hydroxylapatite, a component found in human bones, Radiesse is often used to reduce the appearance of deep creases and lines on the face such as smile lines, marionette lines and frown lines. This filler is also used to improve the volume of the cheeks and contour the face.
Calcium hydroxylapatite is a biosynthetic product. This allows for a lower allergic reaction risk and does not require animal testing or animal products. Used for many years in fields other than plastic surgery, such as dentistry, the ingredients of Radiesse have been tested and is a safe product that produces natural, long-lasting results.
Juvederm Collection, Restylane and Restylane Silk
These fillers are made with hyaluronic acid. This acid is naturally-occuring in the body and promotes hydration in the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a safe substance that is absorbed and naturally processed by the body. These injections can be used to contour and reduce depressions, scars, lines or wrinkles.
We offer hyaluronic acid fillers with specific formulas designed to add volume and reduce wrinkles in targeted areas of the face.
Our Juvederm Collection includes:
Juvederm achieves smooth, natural-looking rejuvenation of parentheses lines and nasolabial folds.
Juvederm Ultra is an excellent way to add attractive fullness and contour to the lips. Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus enable Dr. Saini to appropriately address a patient’s specific degree of facial volume loss, and as well as smooth moderate to more pronounced nasolabial folds and marionette lines.
Juvederm Voluma restores attractive, youthful volume to the midface region, an area which commonly suffers from a “hollowed” appearance with age.
Juvederm Vollure smooths parentheses lines that form along the nose and mouth. Thanks to new Vycross technology, results last for up to 18 months.
Outcomes of these injections include a reduction in the visibility of acne scars, cheek depressions, crow’s feet, smile lines, frown lines, marionette lines, facial scars, and worry lines. They can also help redefine the lip border and reduce vertical lines on the mouth by plumping the lips.
This dermal filler is designed to smooth out and fill in severe nasolabial folds. This fold or crease, runs from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth and is also known as a smile line.
In addition to dermal fillers, our patients can also sculpt their chin and jawline with Kybella:
If the skin under your chin has become noticeably loose or gives the impression of a double chin, Kybella is the perfect solution.
Kybella has an active ingredient called synthetic deoxycholic acid. This acid naturally occurs in the body and aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat. When Kybella is injected into the fat deposits that have formed beneath the chin, it works to eliminate the fat cells. The area under the chin will be corrected and slimmed down in appearance.
All of these rejuvenating treatments are offered at Carolina Plastic Surgery. Fillers can be applied at the same appointment Botox, Dysport or Xeomin are administered. Requiring no downtime, these fast and convenient injections will transform your face to produce a more comprehensive result.
The cost of these products will differ between patients based on their aesthetic goals and specific anatomy.
