Used in very small, controlled and diluted amounts, Clostridium botulinum (Botox®, as well as Xeomin®) - the toxin botulism - is proven to be a safe yet powerful neurotoxin effective in treating wrinkles.
Botox® & Xeomin® blocks nerve signals sent from brain to muscles in your face, preventing them from moving. Over time, the skin's memory fades as the muscle goes unused, thereby reducing wrinkles. Each Botox® & Xeomin® injection lasts approximately 3 - 4 months.
You can expect minimal discomfort, temporary swelling and redness at the injection site and results will be visible within 3 - 4 weeks. Dr. Gordon will determine how many units of Botox® or Xeomin® will be needed to reach your end goals during your consultation.
Before you try any of the other options, try a more short-term solution to your smoother, younger skin goals. If you like the results, then discuss additional options with our doctor.
