Dr. Devgan is featured in Family Circle to clarify readers on common injectable misconceptions

Dr. Devgan is featured in Family Circle magazine as an expert in the medical field and shares her knowledge on injectables. Today we see more and more people wanting to age gracefully, however they are not educated on the topic. Family Circle consults Dr. Devgan to help clarify this topic and answers questions along the lines of what injectables do, whether or not they are painful, and what kind of results to expect.

For anyone who is wondering, Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau are all examples of neuromodulators and are all made from purified, diluted botulinum toxin type A. These injectable medications work to diminish signs of aging, like wrinkles and fine lines. Dr. Devgan uses them “to treat lines that form due to repeated muscle movement” such as “horizontal lines on the forehead, crow’s feet, and the vertical frown lines between the eyebrows.” For those who have never had any injectables done before, let it be known that the treatment itself only takes about 10 minutes and is “no more painful than having your eyebrows tweezed,” explains Dr. Devgan.

A common misconception about neurotoxins is that your muscles completely paralyze you and will result in no expression. Dr. Devgan clarifies this misunderstanding by explaining how “the best and most beautiful results are somewhere in between, where you have natural movement without visible furrows.” If you are new to injectables, the best option is to seek a consultation, that way one can get any and all questions answered and determine which areas botox would be most beneficial. Everyone has his or her own unique anatomy and something like injectables requires expertise in order to achieve optimal results.
