Botox Q & A

How do Botox and Xeomin work?

Botox and Xeomin are purified forms of botulinum toxin that are FDA-approved to treat frown lines and crow’s feet by targeting the muscles that lead to wrinkles. When your provider at HK Dermatology injects the desired neuromodulator into specific points across your forehead, between your eyebrows, at the outer corners of your eyes or in other areas of the face or neck, the botulinum toxin temporarily paralyzes the underlying muscles. This reduces their activity when you make your usual facial expressions, so lines appear smoother, and you look more youthful.

If you have moderate to severe frown lines, forehead lines, crow’s feet, lip lines, or neck cords, a quick 10-minute Botox or Xeomin treatment can help these lines appear smoother and less severe.

How long do Botox and Xeomin treatments last?

You’ll begin to see a difference in your frown lines and crow’s feet in the first 24-48 hours after your appointment. Botox and Xeomin are a temporary treatment for lines and wrinkles. Results typically last about four months in the upper portion of your face.

Everyone is different, so your provider at HK Dermatology can recommend how often you may want to return for another round of Botox or Xeomin injections to maintain your desired look.

What can I expect during a Botox or Xeomin treatment?

Most adults say that botulinum toxin injections are a quick, painless, and easy way to get natural-looking results and a little help turning back the clock on the aging process. You may feel a pinch where the injections are performed, but it’s easily tolerated. If you’re concerned about discomfort, you can request a topical numbing cream before you receive the injections.

After your treatment, there’s minimal downtime, if any, so you can return to your daily routine immediately following the injections. For many women and men, botulinum toxin treatments are so quick and easy, you can schedule them during your lunch break and return to work afterward.

Botox and Xeomin injections are an ideal solution to temporarily smooth out the lines across your forehead, between your brows, around your eyes, and other areas of the face or neck when you want a natural-looking, anti-aging enhancement.
