Botox & Xeomin


What are Botox and Xeomin?

Botox and Xeomin are brands of cosmetic injections called neuromodulators. They are well known and widely used to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and restore a more youthful look. They are both FDA-approved and considered safe and effective.

Botox and Xeomin are injected into facial muscles to prevent muscle contraction. This improves the appearance of frown lines, crow’s feet, and other wrinkles caused by facial expressions. Although the results from these treatments are temporary, patients can wait 3-6 months between treatments.

How do neuromodulators work?

The word neuromodulator sounds intimidating. But the concept is simple; muscle contractions occur in the face and neck as we talk, eat and move. Over time as those muscles continue to contract because of repeated motions, lines and wrinkles can begin to appear on the face. When a neuromodulator is injected (like Botox or Xeomin), it temporarily prevents the muscle from contracting. As a result, the appearance of lines and wrinkles is reduced. This simple procedure takes only minutes to perform, and results are visible after several days, and the full effect is visible at two weeks. The results from these treatments last up to 3 months.

Am I a good candidate for Botox and Xeomin?

Good candidates for Botox and Xeomin have mild to moderate facial wrinkles around the eyes, forehead, neck, or mouth and desire a more youthful appearance. In addition, the best candidates are in good overall health and have reasonable expectations about what’s possible with these treatments.

Botox and Xeomin are not recommended if you are currently pregnant or breastfeeding. In addition, neuromodulators should not be used if you now have an infection in the area you’d like treated or a known allergy to any of the ingredients in the formulations. Also, patients who have neuromuscular disorders such as ALS, myasthenia gravis, or Lamber-Eaton syndrome should avoid this treatment.

What are the target areas for Botox and Xeomin?

Neuromodulators can treat a wide variety of areas, but they are most commonly used to treat the following conditions:

  • Forehead lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Glabella
  • Bunny lines
  • Lips (Specifically the lip-flip treatment)

In addition to cosmetic Botox, therapeutic Botox is used in other ways to treat conditions such as Axillary Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) or migraines. As with any procedure, it’s best to discuss your goals with your practitioner during your consultation.

What is recovery like and are there any side effects?

One of the reasons patients love cosmetic injections is because there is virtually no recovery period. Some patients experience minor bruising or swelling at the injection site, but this reaction is only temporary. As with any procedure, your practitioner will discuss all the possible risks and side effects before undergoing any treatments. We always want you to feel safe and comfortable during your appointment.

How many treatments should I get?

When considering facial injections, it’s common to wonder how many treatments will help you achieve your goals. The number of treatments and the frequency of those treatments will depend on your skincare goals, skin quality, the extent of aging, and your anatomy and budget.

During your consultation, your practitioner will discuss these factors and help you design an optimal treatment regimen. It’s important to remember that all cosmetic injectables are temporary solutions that require ongoing maintenance. For example, most patients schedule Botox and Xeomin injections every 3-4 months.

Neuromodulators (Botox, Xeomin) should not be used if you have an active infection at the site to be treated, or if you have a known allergy to an ingredient in the formulations. Patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not have the treatment. Patients with neuromuscular disorders such as ALS, myasthenia gravis or Lambert-Eaton syndrome also should not have the treatment. We will make sure that it’s safe to proceed with the treatment during your consultation.

Aftercare is simple and we will discuss this with you during the consultation, and will give you an aftercare sheet. Essentially you want to avoid anything that makes you red – tanning, exercise, alcohol. These activities increase blood flow to the face, and in theory could wash the product out before it has a chance to work.
