INJECTABLES

Botulinum Toxin type A, Botox, Xeomin 

 

This relaxing protein is a product that is used to soften the movement of the muscles of facial expression which leads to minimizing expression lines.  The temporary relaxation, that lasts about 4 months, sometimes longer, is the results of the interruption of the impulses between the nerve and the muscle.  Once the effect of the Botox or Xeomin passes the benefits are lost as well and everything goes back to what it was before.  Some of the areas that can be improved with this treatment are frown lines (vertical wrinkles), forehead (horizontal wrinkles), smoker’s lips or bar code (area above upper lip), marionette lines, crow’s feet, jaw line, platysmal banding (neck area), among others.  It is also used to treat migraines, excessive sweating, and some neurological problems.
