What is Botox®?

 BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe forehead lines, crow’s feet lines, and frown lines between the eyebrows in adults. 

How long does it last?

You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, with results lasting up to four months for moderate to severe frown lines. Remember that results vary from patient to patient though, so your physician will plan your next appointment based on your results and aesthetic goals. 

Does it hurt?

The actual injection process takes a quick 10-15 minutes. Our Master Nurse Injector will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you. Then, some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch.

What is Xeomin®?

Xeomin® is a prescription medicine of botulinum type A that is injected directly into the muscle. It is used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyes (glabellar lines). It is a highly purified form of bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Frown lines form whe facial expressions are made as the muscle under the skin contracts. Over time, as your skin ages, these repeated facial expressions cause lasting frown lines. Neurotoxins, such as Xeomin®, are prescription medications that block the release of chemicals that cause these muscle contractions so frown lines are softened.

How long does it last?

Studies show that most injections will last a patient anywhere between 3-6 months with full correction.

Does it hurt?

There is minimal discomfort with a neurotoxin injection due to the small size of the needles. Some patients report feeling a slight pinch or tingle, and some patients do not feel any discomfort at all.
