Botox ®, and Xeomin ® are products that temporarily reduce wrinkles and creases in the skin.These products have been proven safe and have been used for many years. These products work by weakening the muscles that cause many of our wrinkles. This is particularly true around the eyes and forehead where wrinkles from muscle action are common. BOTOX ® and Xeomin ® Cosmetic injections can also be used to give a brow lift. Although larger amounts of Botox® or Xeomin can cause a noticeable loss of motion or expression, this is easily avoided by using lower amounts (and it’s cheaper too). You can reduce the wrinkles and still smile with your whole face. Patients considering injections should also realize that while Botox® and Xeomin® may reduce motion in the face, they DO NOT cause puffiness. Puffiness is present when fillers like Restylane® are used in larger amounts. Botox® and Xeomin® are extremely safe, and allow patients to return to their daily routine immediately after treatment. The effects of Botox ® and Xeomin® are evident within hours of treatment, and last 3-6 months. This procedure is done in our Dallas, Ft. Worth, offices.
