BOTOX® and other Injectables


BOTOX® is a simple, non-surgical, treatment allowing you to keep your years of wisdom without letting it show on your face. It temporarily smoothes moderate to severe frown lines, forehead creases, crow's feet near the eyes, or lines around your mouth by relaxing the muscles. The result is a more refreshed appearance, the prevention of a furrowed brow, and reducing and smoothing fine lines and superficial wrinkles.

BOTOX® is one of the most popular cosmetic solutions and one of the safest, used by thousands of men and women everywhere. Other medical applications include:

  • Blepharospasm (eye spasm)
  • Strabismus (misalignment of the eye)
  • Migraine headaches

Within a few days of just one 15-minute BOTOX® treatment, there's a noticeable improvement that can last up to four (4) months. The BOTOX® starts to disappear after a few months without breaking down or traveling through the body. And as with any cosmetic procedure, results may vary. There is no downtime, and normal daily activities can be resumed immediately following a treatment. Although you may have some localized tenderness or redness at the site of the injection, this does not linger nor interfere with your normal activities. You're ready to get on with your day/night, and look good doing so!

Xeomin®

This FDA approved botulinum toxin type A product is relatively new to the market to treat severe frown lines or lines between the eyebrows. Although already FDA approved for other uses previously, Xeomin is manufactured by Merz Pharmaceuticals, and has been used by thousands of people worldwide. It takes about one week for the full effects of Xeomin injections to be realized. Over the course of those few days, the muscles gradually relax allowing wrinkles to loosen and skin in the treated area to appear more youthful. Once this occurs, the results last from three to six months. Like other drugs in this category, Xeomin works by paralyzing wrinkles, blocking the signals from the nerves to the muscles. As a result, the targeted muscle cannot contract. If you're interested in Xeomin injections, consult with your dermatologist to explore its potential for you.
