About Botox and Xeomin

Botox and Xeomin are common neurotoxin injectables blocking nerve signals from reaching the facial muscles lying under the surface to deliver temporary relaxation. It softens the lines and wrinkles to smoothen your skin and make you appear younger and more youthful. After the treatment, you appear softer and relaxed, unlike other treatments leaving you expressionless.

Receiving Botox and Xeomin

Botox and Xeomin are administered as injections by a physician with advanced training and expertise. The doctor introduces the injectables into your face while targeting specific parts for optimal results. At Skin Deep Laser MD, only Dr. Riehm is certified to administer Botox and Xeomin injections.

Differentiating Between Botox and Xeomin

Botox and Xeomin operate by softening fine lines and wrinkles by tranquilizing facial muscles. The key difference between the injectables is the preparation and composition. Unlike Botox, the common neurotoxin injectable, Xeomin is manufactured as a purer compound lacking superfluous accessory proteins that you may grow immune to.

Botox and Xeomin are commonly used to address frown lines on the crow’s feet, between the eyebrows, and forehead wrinkles. Frown lines are notorious for making you look angry, stern, and fatigued throughout the day. The injectables soften your expressions to make you younger.

Using Botox and Xeomin

Frown lines between your eyebrows, on the crow’s feet around your eyes, and forehead wrinkles give the impression that you are fatigued, angry, sterner, and older. Dr. Riehm administers the injections to help you appear younger, less angry, and less stern.

Other areas that can be treated using injectables include a gummy smile, bunny lines, smoker’s lines, and the downturned corners of your mouth. Dr. Riehm also administers the injectables for painful migraines and tension headaches. In the masseter muscles, Botox and Xeomin relax jaw clenching (bruxism), relieve aching jaws, and decrease tooth grinding.

How Painful are Botox and Xeomin?

As the procedure involves needles, you should be ready for slight discomfort similar to a slight pinch at the injection point. In every case, the sensation is quick and tolerable for most patients. If you’re not a big fan of needles, ask Dr. Riehm to consider using ice or a numbing cream to improve your comfort and effectiveness of the results.

About the Results of Botox and Xeomin

The results of Botox and Xeomin injections differ based on the treatment area. For most parts, your results are visible 3-10 days after the injections, with full results manifesting 5-15 days later.  

The results of each Botox/Xeomin appointment last for three to four months, after which you can visit the practice for subsequent treatment to maintain the results.

Xeomin is a purer version of the injectable toxin. If Botox doesn’t deliver your expected results, Dr. Riehm may recommend Xeomin.

Bottom Line

Botox and Xeomin are designed to help you eradicate wrinkles and facial lines, making you appear older, sterner, and angrier. If you need wrinkle-reducing treatment, Botox and Xeomin should top your list. Contact Skin Deep Laser MD to book an appointment with Dr. Riehm.
