· WHAT IS BOTULINUM TOXIN A Cosmetic (Botox® or Xeomin®)?
BOTULINUMTOXIN A Cosmetic (Botox® or Xeomin®) is a prescription medication used to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines in the area injected.
HOW DOES BOTULINUM TOXIN A Cosmetic (Botox® or Xeomin®)?
When you make some expressions with your face, the muscles contract, causing the skin to furrow and fold. Over time, as your skin ages and loses some of its elasticity, these repeated contractions can cause persistent lines in the area.
BOTULINUM TOXIN Type A - the active ingredient in Botox® or Xeomin® - acts on nerve endings in muscle to prevent muscle fibers from contracting. By reducing these contractions, Botox® or Xeomin® can temporarily reduce the lines on your upper face.
*Individual results may vary. The typical duration of effect is up to 3 months but may last significantly longer or shorter in individual patients.
When Botulinum Toxin is administered by an experienced physician as is Dr. Diaz-Yoserev, you can still smile, frown, and look surprised, but without the wrinkles.
