Botulinum toxin (Xeomin or Botox®) is a protein that acts on nerves and muscles where it is injected to decrease the contraction power of the muscle. This makes the muscle less active, reducing the appearance of expression lines.
Injections are offered above and between the eyes (Glabellar region), on the forehead (Frontalis region), around the eyes (crow’s feet), around the lips (water bottle/straw lines) and grinding muscles (masseter and temporalis muscles).
After your injections are complete, it takes up to 10 days to see your results. These results last between 3 and 4 months. It is important not to have special events (wedding, photoshoot, vacation) planned within 10 days after the injections.
It is requested that patients return 10 days after the injections for post-op pictures and if needed, additional enhancements. A unique conservative dosing map will be placed in your chart for subsequent re-treatment visits.
