What are Botox® and Xeomin® and how do they work?
Botox® and Xeomin® are two forms of a prescription medication that is injected into your facial muscles. It is used to reduce the look of moderate to severe frown lines on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and for “crow’s feet” that develop around the eyes. It works by blocking the nerve impulses to the injected sites, reducing the muscle activity that causes these persistent lines to form. The effects of Botox® and Xeomin® are temporary, lasting about 4 to 6 months.
Why should I consider Botox® and Xeomin®?
You may have noticed frown lines between your brows or “crow’s feet” near your eyes, making you look tired or even older than you should. Ask Dr. McCullom if Botox® or Xeomin® may be right for you. Real results, no surgery, and no recovery time necessary are a few of the reasons to choose treatment with Botox® or Xeomin®.
Is there any medical reason to use Botox® or Xeomin®?
Yes. Botox® and Xeomin® may be used in treatment of Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMJ/TMD), facial spasms, gummy smiles, and others. Botox® or Xeomin® is injected into facial and jaw muscles to provide relief from jaw tension and soreness. Additionally, these injections can reduce bruxism (teeth grinding), minimize lockjaw, and eliminate bruxism headaches.
Will I still be able to have facial expressions?
Although the results are visible, a treatment with Botox® or Xeomin® will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you’ve “had work done.” The muscle activity that causes frown lines between the brows is temporarily reduced, so you can still frown or look surprised, just without the wrinkles and creases that can make you appear older.
How long can I expect my results to last?
Visible results generally last about 4 to 6 months. Your own results may vary. Dr. McCullom will discuss with you what you should expect and when you should schedule your next appointment.
