What are Botox and Xeomin?
Botox and Xeomin belong to a group of medications known as Neuromodulators. FDA approved Neuromodulators in the United States include Botox, Xeomin, Dysport, and Jeuveau. When delivered to certain areas of the face, these medications can relax or soften the muscles of expression thus reducing lines and wrinkles of the face. These medications are very good a preventing lines and wrinkles from worsening over time and prevent aging. It is important to stay on a regular treatment frequency of anywhere to 4-6 months. There are no other medications that prevent fine lines and wrinkles as cost effectively and efficiently as Neuromodulators.
Can Neuromodulator use look natural?
Yes, Neuromodulators do not change the appearance of the face. They simply relax the muscles of expression so that fine lines and wrinkles are softened and can give the skin a healthy glow.
How long does treatment last?
It is important to remember that the effects of Neuromodulators are not immediate and can take anywhere from 5-12 days to be fully activated. Most Neuromodulators have the same duration and they are reported to last around 4-6 months; however rarely do clients get 6 month duration. This is incredibly variable from client to client depending on a lot of factors. We express to clients to expect more around 3-4 months of softened lines and wrinkles but you may have a longer duration.
How much do Botox/Xeomin cost?
This is variable for each client based on level of aging and treatment area. The cost is based on number of units used for dosing. For the most common areas treated and average doses the cost range is from $250-400.
