TOXINS: Botox & Xeomin

Every person’s treatment needs are different, and the therapy you and your doctor choose should reflect that. If you have been previously treated for adult upper limb spasticity, cervical dystonia, or blepharospasm, your doctor will take that into consideration when determining your initial dose of Botox or Xeomin.

In minutes, we can make a few tiny injections of the BOTOX® Cosmetic protein or XEOMIN to relax the muscles causing fine lines and keep them relaxed up to four months. Unlike surgery, BOTOX® Cosmetic & XEOMIN are fast, effortless, and minimally invasive with no downtime or recovery period.

Subsequent treatments are individualized by your doctor based on your condition and symptoms. That means the dose for you may not be the same as the dose for another patient with the same diagnosis.

BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment is a simple, non-surgical procedure that smooth the deep, persistent lines that developed over time. BOTOX® Cosmetic is not magic; it’s medicine and the result of years of careful research and testing. BOTOX® Cosmetic is fast, effortless, and minimally invasive. No downtime or recovery period.

BOTOX® Cosmetic, also known as OnabotulinumtoxinA, is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines. BOTOX® was first introduced in the late 1980’s by ophthalmologists to treat optic muscle disorders. In 2002, BOTOX® was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of moderate to severe frwn lines between the eye brows (glabellar lines). Since then, popularity has soared and is consistently one of the top five nonsurgical cosmetic procedures performed each year. BOTOX® is used to eradicate crow’s feet, frown lines, and furrows in the forehead. BOTOX® is also approved for medical treatment such as severe armpit perspiration and migraine headaches.

Because BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine, it must be injected with sterile instruments by a physician in a doctor’s office. A minimal discomfort from the shot may occur but the procedure overall is painless. If you are extremely sensitive, you may ask for some local anesthesia or a numbing cream. The procedure takes anywhere from a few minutes to 20 minutes depending on the extent of the treatment.

Selecting the correct injection points is critical to the success of the procedure. The points are not necessarily at the wrinkle you are hoping to erase but where the muscle contracts. You can resume normal activities immediately but we recommend our patients to avoid the sun.

Your provider will decide how many muscles need to be injected and the dose per muscle, and he or she may adjust that dose over time so that it is right for you. In general, XEOMIN can be used no more frequently than every 12 weeks.1

When it comes to Botox and other injectable, you get what you pay for. Be aware; bargain Botox may increase your risk of complications, including poor cosmetic results. Some risks may be associated with the procedure and we advise our patients not to have this type of procedure performed at parties by your local nail salon, neighbor’s living room or at the mall. Many types of physicians perform Botox injections, including board-certified plastic surgeons, dermatologists and facial plastic surgeons. Botox shots require a precise knowledge of facial anatomy.
