As two of the most popular anti-aging treatments, Botox® and Xeomin® are trusted injectables that have helped millions to rejuvenate their appearance by diminishing lines and wrinkles on the face. Both Botox and Xeomin in Northwest Arkansas are FDA-approved aesthetic treatments that relax the facial muscles beneath the skin’s surface to make wrinkles and lines less noticeable, allowing patients to maintain smoother skin and their most youthful appearance.
Botox is FDA approved to treat the Glabellar Lines, also known as the “elevens” between the eyebrows and the Lateral Canthus Lines, or “crow’s feet.” Currently Xeomin is also approved for the Glabellar Lines.
When part of a routine, these aesthetic treatments are most effective at reducing the effects of aging by minimizing lines and wrinkles that develop as a result of repeated muscular movements beneath the skin’s surface.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do Botox and Xeomin work?
Botox in the River Valley can temporarily relax the facial muscles that cause wrinkles, making them less noticeable.
Xeomin is often used to treat glabellar frown lines (the deep wrinkles between your eyes on your forehead). It acts on nerve endings in muscles to prevent muscle fibers from contracting.
How long will it take to see results?
Botox and Xeomin results are usually evident within one week. In Xeomin clinical trials, some patients observed visible smoothing as early as three to four days after injection, with full effects occurring at two weeks for both Xeomin and Botox.
How long do the effects last?
Most patients enjoy results of Botox or Xeomin for three to four months.
What else can Botox treat?
Botox is also approved for hyperhidrosis, or severe underarm sweating. Results for this treatment can last up to six months.
