What Is BOTOX?
BOTOX® is a popular injectable treatment to reduce unwanted signs of aging. It is an effective option for concerns like crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines. All of these signs of aging are a natural result of facial movements.
What Is XEOMIN?
XEOMIN® is a neuromodulator specifically formulated for the treatment of glabellar lines. Glabellar lines, which may be referred to as frown lines, are the lines that form between the eyebrows. These lines develop over time as a result of facial movements and expressions.
What Could I Expect from BOTOX and XEOMIN?
BOTOX and XEOMIN are administered in the comfort of our office. These neuromodulators are injected directly into the areas of concern. There is minimal discomfort associated with the process, but you may feel a slight pinch at the injection site.
Once the injection is administered, the BOTOX and XEOMIN start to get to work. They are neuromodulators, meaning they affect the path of a nerve signal. The nerve signal is unable to reach the facial muscle, meaning the muscle is unable to contract to create or worsen a dynamic line.
These treatment sessions are often short, and there is no downtime associated with the process. You should be able to return to your normal daily activities, and you may begin to notice results shortly after your treatment session. While results will vary for each injectable and person, results from BOTOX and XEOMIN may last for up to a few months. To maintain your results, a series of treatments may be recommended
Am I a Good Candidate?
BOTOX and XEOMIN may be administered for most generally healthy patients. It can be utilized for most types of skin. However, it is important to keep in mind these injectable treatments are neuromodulators, meaning they can only be used to address specific types of fine lines.
These treatments may only be beneficial for those who are trying to target signs of aging caused by natural facial movements and expressions. They are not an effective choice for lines caused by sun damage, smoking, or similar causes.
