What is Botox?
Botox is a medical form of botulinum toxin that’s FDA-approved for cosmetic and therapeutic uses. The team at Hillside Medical Clinic uses Botox to relax your facial muscles and minimize:
- Forehead wrinkles
- Frown lines between the eyes
- Crow’s feet at the sides of eyes
How does Botox work?
The active ingredients in Botox interrupt the nerve messaging pathways from your brain and temporarily paralyze your facial muscles so they can’t contract. When your muscle is relaxed, the skin smoothes out and makes you look younger.
What is Xeomin®?
Xeomin is a neurotoxin like Botox. It doesn’t contain any of the additives that are in Botox, so it’s the most concentrated and pure form of the botulinum toxin. Because Xeomin is only a single ingredient, your body has a better chance of accepting it and not building antibodies to it. It’s used for frown lines between your brows.
You can combine Xeomin or Botox with dermal fillers for a liquid facelift. Dermal fillers perfectly complement Xeomin and Botox because they fill tissue under your skin to reduce common signs of aging like wrinkles, sagging skin, and creases.
Does it hurt to get Botox or Xeomin injections?
To help you feel completely comfortable during your Botox, Xeomin, or dermal filler injection treatment, Hillside Medical Clinic offers Nitronox, a pain relief system that combines equal amounts of nitrous oxide and oxygen. Much like happy gas at the dentist, the team provides Nitronox on an as-needed basis.
How long does it take to see results?
Whether you have Botox, Xeomin, or dermal filler injections, you’ll see results within 3-4 days. Of course, everyone responds differently, and it depends on where and how extensive your wrinkles are, but you’ll have noticeable results in less than a week. At your consultation before the treatment, your provider explains the procedure and outlines what you can expect.
How long will the results last?
You’ll love that Botox, Xeomin, and fillers give you quick results with minimal side effects. With Botox and Xeomin, you’ll see the effects for about 3-6 months, while fillers last up to a year. When the results begin to wear off, it’s safe to treat the area again.
