As you age, skin begins to lose its elasticity. Over time, it may even stretch or sag in places. This can result in the appearance of wrinkles, which can cause your face to appear older than your actual age. For some, wrinkles can be a source of unhappiness. Dr. McCullom and our team are experienced in reversing the effects of aging and restoring your skin and face to their natural beauty. One of the ways we do this is with medications such as Botox or Xeomin.
What are Botox and Xeomin?
Botox and Xeomin are medications which are used to combat wrinkles. These medications help your facial muscles to relax, reducing the look of wrinkling and preventing further strain and wrinkling from occurring. Botox and Xeomin work by preventing your nerves from contracting your muscles. This softens the look and feel of wrinkles.
What Can It Do for Me?
Botox and Xeomin can be used to reduce wrinkles, but they can also provide treatment for TMJ pain, headaches, and gummy smiles. Typically, treatments are done to the forehead, the area surrounding the eyes, and frown lines.
How Easy are the Treatment?
Most treatments at Dr. McCullom’s office take only 10 minutes to apply. Full effects are typically noticeable after about one week. The results last between four and six months. Repeated treatments allow your muscles to continue to relax, making your face appear smoother.
