What is Botox / Xeomin?
FDA-approved Botox and Xeomin are minimally invasive cosmetic injectables that soften moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles that develop as we age.
Yes, Botox / Xeomin is a toxin, but when doctors use it correctly and in small doses, it can have benefits.
Cosmetic botulinum toxin therapy, aka neurotoxin injectables, works to help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by paralyzing the muscles underneath.
Botulinum toxin is extremely dangerous. However, when appropriately used in a therapeutic context, it is safe and has few side effects.
Manufacturers make Botox / Xeomin injections with very small doses of Botulinum toxin.
The primary use of Botox / Xeomin is reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles.
The effects are temporary, lasting 3–12 months, depending on the type of treatment.
Chronic Migraine Uses
Botox / Xeomin are prescription medicines that are injected to prevent headaches in adults (18+) with chronic migraine, who have 15 or more days each month with headaches lasting four or more hours each day.
Botox / Xeomin treatments are affordable, completely safe, have been thoroughly tested, and are approved by the FDA.
How often can you get Botox injections?
Although Botox / Xeomin is effective at temporarily blocking the communication of nerves, it is just that: temporary.
Months after the treatment, you will start to notice the return of old facial wrinkles. The wrinkles will, however, become less pronounced with regular treatment.
The number of units that are used is just one aspect that affects the results of your treatment. The results will wear off more quickly if a smaller amount is injected into the target area.
During your initial treatment, to see how well the treatment works on you, we will start you with a low dose. If the response is positive, we may increase the dosage.
As the effects typically last around three to four months, it is usually okay to receive a follow-up treatment within this window.
