Frown Line Fillers

Frown Lines/Crow’s Feet

Frown lines (wrinkles between the eyebrows) and crow’s feet (wrinkles around the corner of the eyes) are formed by a combination of hyperactive muscles, loss of skin elasticity, and genetics. Healthy habits – getting plenty of sleep, not smoking, and eating a diet rich in antioxidants – can help skin elasticity. However, these measures should be supplemented with in-office treatments.

To effectively address frown lines and crow’s feet, Dr. Aurora DeJuliis MD Montclair NJ employs neuromodulators like BOTOX® Cosmetic and Xeomin®. These treatments are carefully injected into specific muscles, causing them to relax, which in turn smoothes the overlying skin. With her extensive background in skin rejuvenation, gained from her education in Rome and Paris, and over 20 years of experience, Dr. DeJuliis will provide a customized treatment for your unique needs.

BOTOX Cosmetic and Xeomin injections are quick, easy, and require no anesthesia.

Benefits of Neuromodulator Injections for Crow’s Feet

BOTOX Cosmetic and Xeomin are ideal for treating crow’s feet and frown lines. 

These popular injectables offer several benefits, including:

  • No downtime: Simple, fast, and effective, injecting neuromodulators is typically a quick process that does not require any downtime. While you should avoid strenuous activity for 24 hours, most patients can return to their normal routines immediately after treatment.

  • Reduced signs of aging: Both BOTOX Cosmetic and Xeomin help relax treated facial muscles to reduce signs of aging. They enhance your expressions by allowing you to laugh, talk, smile, and react naturally without worrying about the look of crow’s feet or frown lines.

  • Aging prevention: Because the treated facial muscles are less active for months at a time, neuromodulators also help prevent the formation of future wrinkles and fine lines, allowing you to enjoy your improved, youthful appearance for longer.

Who Is a Candidate for Neuromodulator Injections?

Healthy adults who want to reduce visible signs of aging around their eyes are usually ideal candidates for frown line injections and crow’s feet treatment. That is because neuromodulators are a safe and effective choice for the vast majority of people. However, there are exceptions.

For example, if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have an active skin infection, you are not currently a suitable candidate for frown line or crow’s feet treatments with neuromodulators. Similarly, patients who are allergic to the ingredients in BOTOX Cosmetic and Xeomin, as well as those with neuromuscular disorders or skin laxity, will likely benefit from an alternative service.

Dr. Aurora DeJuliis emphasizes the importance of a comprehensive consultation before receiving neuromodulator injections for facial aging. This step ensures that patients are ideal candidates for the procedure and helps tailor the treatment plan to each individual's needs. 

Your consultation will also provide you with valuable information about preparing for your appointment. Patients are generally advised to avoid certain medications and supplements that can increase bruising, such as aspirin and fish oil, before getting BOTOX Cosmetic or Xeomin.

How Long Does BOTOX for Frown Lines Last?

The results of BOTOX Cosmetic and Xeomin injections usually last for three to four months. This duration takes into account the excessive movement that occurs in the eye area. During this time, treated muscles will not be able to contract fully, which helps reduce the appearance of visible lines. It can also slow down the development of deeper frown lines and crow’s feet.

Follow-up treatments will help you maintain the results of your initial appointment. Dr. DeJuliis will gladly work with you to determine the appropriate frequency for your unique situation.

How to Maximize Your Results

To maximize the longevity of your BOTOX Cosmetic or Xeomin treatment with Dr. DeJuliis, it's essential to adhere to specific post-treatment guidelines. Avoid massaging or applying pressure to the treated areas for at least 24 hours to prevent Botox diffusion. Also, stay away from high-heat environments like saunas or hot yoga classes immediately after treatment, as heat can accelerate the dispersion of Botox and lessen its effectiveness.

In addition, Dr. DeJuliis recommends building a good skincare routine. Use products that enhance skin elasticity and hydration, such as those containing retinol or hyaluronic acid. Regular sunscreen application is critical to protect your skin from UV damage, which can hasten aging and reduce the effectiveness of BOTOX. Outside of using the right topical products, eating a balanced diet, staying hydrated, reducing stress, and avoiding smoking are beneficial practices that support overall skin health and may help extend the effects of your treatment.

Are There Any Side Effects with BOTOX Cosmetic and Xeomin?

Just like all injectable treatments, BOTOX Cosmetic and Xeomin can come with several potential side effects. Patients may experience pain at the injection site, bruising, watery or dry eyes, and swelling. These side effects, which are often mild, usually subside on their own within several days. They can be minimized by visiting a skilled provider and following their guidelines.

Safety and Efficacy: What the Research Shows

The safety and efficacy of neuromodulator injections, such as BOTOX Cosmetic and Xeomin, are well-documented in numerous studies. These treatments are FDA-approved and have been shown to be effective in reducing the appearance of frown lines and crow's feet. Research indicates that when performed by experienced professionals like Dr. DeJuliis, these injections not only offer significant aesthetic improvements but also maintain a high safety profile. Patients can feel confident in choosing these treatments for a youthful appearance with minimal risks.
