What are BOTOX and Xeomin?

Every time you see your face in a mirror, are you distressed about wrinkles or fine lines on your forehead and near your eyes? Commonly called dynamic wrinkles and lines, these skin changes occur due to repetitious facial movements, such as squinting, smiling, and frowning. As people become more mature, these wrinkles ultimately stay put and can make them seem tired. Thanks to BOTOX Cosmetic and XEOMIN treatments, we have the ability to temporarily diminish the formation of moderate to severe frown lines, horizontal forehead lines, and Crow's feet. These injectable wrinkle solutions work by temporarily disengaging the facial muscles that create those movements, letting the underlying skin rebound over time. At The Facial Aesthetics Center at Westlake Family Dental Care, our providers are pleased to offer BOTOX and XEOMIN injections as minimally invasive options to help individuals achieve a smoother, rejuvenated outcome. We invite you to reach out to our office in Westlake, OH to further explore injectable treatments.

What are the Benefits of BOTOX and Xeomin?

Fine lines and facial folds can distract from our other attributes, as well as making us look more aged than we are. BOTOX is an excellent option for providing you with a more youthful, smooth aesthetic. Although the outcomes are not permanent, you will reap their benefits for a few months prior to wanting to schedule a touch-up treatment. Patients may also receive extra benefits from BOTOX and Xeomin injections at The Facial Aesthetics Center at Westlake Family Dental Care, such as:

  • Quick procedures: the  procedures at times take as few as 10 minutes
  • No downtime or rehab: because of its minimally-invasive qualities, you are free to return to your daily life after appointments
  • Minimal pain: these treatments employ a very small needle, so that the procedures will feel merely like a hardly noticeable prick of the skin
  • Straightforward upkeep: individuals who wish to keep the appearance long-term will find that follow-up treatment appointments quick and feasible for day-to-day life

Should I Get BOTOX or XEOMIN?

Individuals seeking a minimally invasive treatment to minimize forehead creases, Crow's feet, or frown lines may be ideal candidates for BOTOX and/or XEOMIN injections at The Facial Aesthetics Center at Westlake Family Dental Care. It can be a good option if you have prominent glabellar lines ("11" lines between the eyes) that lead to a fatigued or older look. BOTOX and XEOMIN have grown in favor with younger people, too. Although younger adults in their 20s and 30s might not yet exhibit the early signs of aging, BOTOX and XEOMIN can be utilized as preventive solutions to get ahead of the normal process of aging by temporarily minimizing or stalling the advancement of facial lines.

How Do BOTOX and Xeomin Work?

When you visit for your first consultation at The Facial Aesthetics Center, your provider will provide a cosmetic analysis to help you determine which areas should receive treatment. Since BOTOX is performed during an efficient, in-office procedure, your injections can often be carried out in the same visit. The solution will be injected into the specified areas of your brow or face using a small needle. The treatment itself takes around 5 – 10 minutes to carry out, and most patients report only slight discomfort (like a pinprick or pinching feeling). Following your session, you can leave our facility and get right back to your normal daily activities.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many injections/units will I need?

The number of BOTOX treatments given will vary based on individual concerns and the extent of your facial wrinkles. Dr. Jenn can recommend the correct number of BOTOX injections according to your desired aesthetic desires and whether you want to address the forehead, Crow's feet, or between the eyes. To refresh your cosmetic results, our practitioners could suggest getting BOTOX services every few months at The Facial Aesthetics Center at Westlake Family Dental Care.

Can I have BOTOX with other nonsurgical services?

BOTOX treatment generally pairs well with additional cosmetic solutions at The Facial Aesthetics Center at Westlake Family Dental Care for men and women who wish to address signs of aging. If you notice deeper and more severe creases and wrinkles, our professionals could suggest incorporating a filler for maximum outcomes. To further improve a younger-looking glow, Dr. Jenn could perform other complementary services, including PRP with microneedling or facials.

Are there comparable aesthetic injections?

BOTOX is a certain type of wrinkle reducer that thrives among a range of other comparable solutions, such as XEOMIN®, Jeuveau™, and Dysport®. These wrinkle reducing solutions contain type A botulinum toxin; however, they are each formulated a little differently to meet particular concerns.

What's the variation among fillers and wrinkle relaxers?

Although wrinkle relaxers, like BOTOX, are used to diminish fine creases by temporarily preventing your muscle engagement,dermal fillers are a separate category of aesthetic solutions that improve facial volume. Dermal fillers are intended to volumize hollow features and reduce static wrinkles. Dr. Jenn can discuss if you might be a good candidate for a filler (like Restylane® or JUVÉDERM®) to complement your BOTOX outcomes.

Is there an ideal age to get BOTOX and/or Xeomin injections?

Individuals who wish to soften and decrease facial lines and wrinkles may be candidates for BOTOX and/or Xeomin. The most common age to receive BOTOX and/or Xeomin injections is between 30 – 55. However, it is also common for patients younger to receive injections as this treatment is also considered a preventive for aging.

Are the results of BOTOX and Xeomin injections long-lasting?

BOTOX and/or Xeomin is not a permanent fix. Results will last for several months, sometimes longer, but they will not last forever. There is good news and bad news when it comes to BOTOX and/or Xeomin. The good news is that if you are not happy with your results, the results will only last a few months. Likewise, the bad news is that if you love your results (which most people do), the results will only last a few months. Regardless, many patients recognize even the temporary results are worth feeling and looking younger.
