BOTOX® and XEOMIN® are neurotoxins that are commonly used to reduce or eliminate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Made from a purified protein, neurotoxins relax the muscles used to create facial wrinkles, giving a refreshed, younger look.
"People started asking me if I was ok. I mean I'm usually a happy person, life of the party, but I knew what they meant. It was my frown lines! They made me look worried, upset. I'd wanted to do something about them for a while but was... nervous. I'd seen women who were...well, overdone, unnatural looking. So, I did my homework and selected a great physician. She helped me find and administered a treatment that was right for me... she suggested that XEOMIN® would be a good option and it was just what I wanted. I love the way I look."
How do neurotoxins work?
By relaxing the muscles of expression that are directly attached to the skin, neurotoxins allow the skin to rest and thereby heal from any lines that might have formed from repeated expression.
When will I see results from my neurotoxin treatment?
Results begin to appear within 2-5 days. By 2 weeks the full effect of the treatment is appreciated.
How long will my treatment last?
Typically neurotoxins last approximately 3-4 months. However there are several factors that may influence metabolism, which in turn can affect the durability of neurotoxins. Some examples include certain medications, endocrine conditions, severe illness or surgery, smoking, significant weight loss and intense athletic training. Of note, neurotoxins may last up to 6 months in individuals who have had repeated treatments.
