What is Botox®?
As the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment in the world, Botox® helps millions of women and men look their best with minimal to no downtime. This safe and trusted FDA-approved injectable temporarily smoothes away not only moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, but also forehead lines, and crow’s feet by relaxing the muscle activity underlying wrinkles.
Botox® can achieve the following:
- Reduce frown lines between the brows
- Smooth forehead lines and wrinkles
- Diminish crow’s feet
- Create a younger-looking appearance
Botox takes only minutes to administer. Within 3 to 14 days, you’ll start noticing improvements in lines and wrinkles in targeted areas, with benefits lasting up to four months per treatment.
A popular “lunch-time” treatment, Botox involves minimal to no downtime.
What is Xeomin®?
Xeomin® is a neuromodulator that consists of the botulinum toxin type A. Xeomin® treats not only blepharospasm (eyelid spasms) but also cervical dystonia (severe contractions of the neck muscles) by stopping the muscles from contracting.
Depending upon the number of muscles that are affected and the severity of the condition will determine the number of necessary injections. This will vary from patient to patient.
How long does Botox® and Xeomin® last?
Botox® and Xeomin® typically last 3-4 months. Usually 3 months as you first start and eventually, lasting longer.
Will I Become Addicted to Xeomin® or Botox®?
No, you will not become “addicted”. You may really love your appearance after the treatments and may wish to continue- but this is not an “addiction”.
If I have Xeomin® and later on I stop, will I look worse?
Absolutely not! In fact you will have delayed some of the aging effects of time.
Fillers Vs. Botox
Dermal fillers are used for filling in areas of depleted volume and etched in static lines. Botox® is used for dynamic action lines.
Your Botox® / Xeomin® Treatment With Rejuvenate MD
Botox® and Xeomin® work by disrupting the communication between muscles to cause temporary paralysis. A very thin 30G needle is used for Botox/Xeomin injections. The needle is very small and goes in at a superficial level. Immediately post treatment you will have some welts at the injection site but they typically subside in thirty minutes. Botox and Xeomin will start to take effect 3 days after treatment, with optimal results seen at 2 weeks.
