Botox & Xeomin
Procedural safety, ease, and efficacy have made Botox the most popular cosmetic anti-aging procedure worldwide. With age, the repeated muscle contractions that form our facial expressions inevitably produce forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet. Compounds like Botox & Xeomin temporarily relax muscle activity in the injection site, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and lines in that area. Pending consultation with our aesthetics specialist, the nurse may determine to administer Xeomin instead of Botox. Both Botox and Xeomin implement the same active ingredient (botulinum toxin type A) to correct facial wrinkles, but depending on an individual’s unique skin-qualities, one may prove more effective than the other. For both Xeomin and Botox, results may appear within 24-48 hours of injection and should last up to 4 months. For optimal results, use in conjunction with a dermal filler, such as Juvederm.
Juvederm & Belotero
Juvederm & Belotero, like Botox, work to smooth facial wrinkles and lines that have formed naturally as a result of aging. Although similar to Botox on a practical level, these compounds come from a different family of anti-aging injectables called “fillers.” Rather than relax the targeted muscles, as with Botox, fillers “fill” creases and plump the skin for a fresh, youthful appearance. Hyaluronic acid, Juvederm & Belotero’s primary ingredient, binds to the skin cells’ natural water stores to physically restore lost tissue volume for up to a year. Additionally, because fillers and Botox/Xeomin activate different physiological responses to treat signs of aging, the two treatments may be used simultaneously to achieve greater results. Botox preserves the underlying muscle, while fillers plump the skin, smooth out fine lines, and help produce a softer, more natural appearance.
