Botox Q & A
How does Botox XEOMIN work?
As your skin ages and loses elasticity, you may develop frown lines between your eyebrows from all the squinting and frowning you’ve done over the years. Botox XEOMIN can turn the clock back when it comes to these wrinkles.
Botox safely and temporarily paralyzes nerve endings that control specific muscles in your forehead. The injections keep your muscles from contracting and allows them to relax, smoothing out the furrows in your skin.
The effects of your treatment typically last for about three months. You can then have repeated treatments to keep your skin smooth.
What should I expect during and after my Botox treatment?
You’ll receive your Botox XEOMIN treatment at the Apple Valley Medicine office. The treatment only takes 10-20 minutes. No anesthesia is needed, but you might receive a cold pack or topical anesthetic to minimize any discomfort in the treatment area.
Then, using a thin needle, Dr. Ude-Oshiyoye or Dr. Oshiyoye injects the Botox medication into the muscles that make those frown lines, causing them to relax.
After your procedure, you can leave the office and resume your daily schedule. You should see results within a week, and the full benefits to your skin’s appearance are visible roughly 30 days later.
What are the benefits of Botox XEOMIN?
By minimizing the lines on your face, Botox treatments can help give you the youthful look you desire, without the cost and invasiveness of cosmetic surgery. Other benefits include:
- In-office procedure
- Fast recovery time and minimal disruption to your day
- Safety and effectiveness: Botox XEOMIN has been FDA-approved since 2011
How do I know if I’m a good candidate for Botox?
You may be a good candidate for Botox if:
- You have expression lines on your face
- You have no history of allergic reaction to botulinum toxin medicine
- You’re not currently pregnant or breastfeeding
Let the doctors know about any other botulinum toxin treatments you’ve had, and all medications you take, including herbal supplements and vitamins. Dr. Oshiyoye or Dr. Ude-Oshiyoye will discuss your medical history with you to determine if Botox XEOMIN treatment is right for you.
