Do you want to erase the effect of aging?  BOTOX®/Xeomin is a temporary solution which relaxes facial muscles to reduce wrinkles and fine lines on your face which develop as a part of the aging process. This procedure is most effective on the wrinkles that have not quit ironed in your skin which are referred to as dynamic wrinkle and appear when you move your muscles of the face. Wrinkles such as Crows feet, worry lines and laugh lines can all be a thing of the past. BOTOX®/Xeomin is injected into the tiny facial muscles that create these wrinkles. By relaxing the muscle BOTOX®/Xeomin reduces your age lines, taking the years away. 

Before Your BOTOX®/Xeomin Procedure

To better understand your overall health, a complete evaluation of your medical history will be conducted prior to injecting BOTOX®/Xeomin.  In addition, a complete examination of your face is made in order to decide the most effective BOTOX®/Xeomin injection sites. All issues and concerns will be discussed before the administration of BOTOX®/Xeomin.

The areas that will be treated with BOTOX®/Xeomin are discussed and digital photographs may be taken in order to determine the amount of improvement after injection with BOTOX®/Xeomin.

The BOTOX®/Xeomin Cosmetic Procedure

BOTOX®Xeomin Cosmetic injections are performed without anesthesia because they are virtually painless. Only a very small sting is felt when the injections of BOTOX®Xeomin are made. If you are nervous about the BOTOX®/Xeomin injection, we offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) or topical anesthetic cream that may eliminate the small “pinch” from the BOTOX®Xeomin needle.   The effects of BOTOX®/Xeomin are not permanent and may need to be repeated two to three times per year to retain the effects. Research has suggested, however, that long term use of Botox®/Xeomin leads to a shorter duration of each treatment’s effect. However, continued use of BOTOX®/Xeomin over time will slow the aging process, as the lines do not have time to form because BOTOX®/Xeomin paralysis affects your muscle activity.

BOTOX®/Xeomin Cosmetic is only useful in treating expression lines and cannot be used to repair sagging skin caused by aging.  .

After  BOTOX®/Xeomin treatment  Information

**Effects of the Botox® injections usually begin to appear within 3-5 days. The results generally last around three to six months, after which time, the injections must be repeated.
