Botox / Xeomin
BOTOX (Botulinum Toxin Type A) is a non-surgical simple procedure that can smoothen moderate to severe frown lines and crows feet at the ages of 18 to 65. It is FDA approved. One treatment consists of a few tiny injections and only takes about 10 minutes. The improvement is noticeable on the lines and can last from 3 to 6 months.
BOTOX Cosmetic treatments can improve:
- Worry lines in forehead
- Frown lines between the eyebrows
- Crow’s feet
Alternatively, Botox can treat individuals with severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) that is inadequately managed with topical agents. Treatment is determined based on the individual condition keeping in mind contraindication and safety precautions.
Individuals with peripheral motor neuropathic diseases (e.g, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or motor neuropathy) or neuromuscular junctional disorders (e.g, myasthenia gravis or Lambert-Eaton syndrome) should only receive BOTOX with caution. Patients with neuromuscular disorders may be at increased risk of clinically significant systemic effects including severe dysphagia and respiratory compromise from typical doses of Botox.
During your pre-treatment free consultation session, the treatment will be discussed fully in light of your health conditions. During your consultation, all necessary forms are filled out and all of your concerns are addressed.
What is Xeomin?
XEOMIN injection, for intramuscular use, is a prescription medication used to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults. XEOMIN contains botulinum toxin type A, a protein purified from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum.
How does it work?
When you squint or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing the skin to furrow and fold. Over time, as your skin ages and loses some of its elasticity, these repeat contractions can cause persistent frown lines. Botulinum toxin type A - the active ingredient in XEOMIN acts on nerve endings in muscles to prevent muscle fibers from contracting. By reducing these contractions, XEOMIN can temporarily reduce the lines on your forehead between your brows.
