Botox Cosmetic and Xeomin

What are Botox and Xeomin?

Botox and Xeomin are both purified proteins that temporarily relax the facial muscles in order smooth out moderate-to-severe wrinkles and folds. They can be injected in many areas of the face, including the following common sites: between the brows, the forehead and around the eyes. There are other areas that can be injected, such as in the chin (to prevent an “orange peel” look) and the nose (for bunny lines).
When you make facial expressions, lines and creases develop. As time passes and your facial muscles repeatedly contract, these temporary creases become permanently etched onto the face. When the correct dosage of Botox or Xeomin is placed in the proper muscles, you will still have natural movement while maintaining a youthful look.

How Botox and Xeomin work

Botox and Xeomin work by blocking nerve impulses to the muscles, selectively weakening muscular contraction. The reduced strength of muscular contraction reduces the wrinkles caused by expression. After several months, the muscles slowly regain their full strength of contraction.

What to expect during your appointment

During your initial consultation, you will meet with Stephanie Gho, MS, PA-C or Karolina Priebe, DNP, FNP-C. Our providers will first perform an assessment which will analyze targeted areas looking at muscle movement and strength. This will help her to determine the amount and location of the injections. During treatments, a series of small shots are injected into the targeted muscles. A precise amount of product is carefully placed into each site for maximum, lasting results. The entire procedure takes 10-15 minutes and you will be able to return to your normal activities immediately. A topical anesthetic may be applied to your skin to minimize discomfort during your appointment.

What to expect from the results

You will begin to feel the effects 2-7 days after the treatment.* The longevity of Xeomin and Botox depends on three main things: your metabolism, your muscle strength and how active those muscles are. Some people will metabolize the product very quickly and will therefore need injections more often. Similarly, the stronger your muscles are, the more product you will need. Muscles we use frequently, such as the ones around the mouth and eyes, are more active and will need to be injected more frequently. Typically, results last a few months.* Because these neuromodulators are temporary, it is best to come in every 3-4 months to maintain optimal results. Do not wait until it completely wears off, since there is a synergistic effect.
