Wrinkle relaxers, commonly known as Botox or tox, are most often used on the brow, frown lines, forehead and around the eyes to soften facial wrinkles. The result is a rejuvenated, youthful appearance. Botox®Cosmetics and Xeomin® treatments are among the most common, non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments worldwide. These treatments can be used in other facial areas or for treating migraines and jaw clenching, so called “off label” uses.
Botox®Cosmetics and Xeomin® treatments relax facial muscles, preventing the excessive movement that results in wrinkling of the skin. Treatments can be started at any age, however wrinkle relaxers are more effective on shallower, less-developed lines.
Treatment is quick and simple. Botox®Cosmetics or Xeomin® is injected into the skin at the desired locations and the procedure is usually completed within 15 minutes, with results gradually appearing over the next few days, but occasionally taking upto 2 weeks. Some patients experience slight redness and minor discomfort at the injection site. Results typically last for 3 to 4 months.
Costs can vary depending on the area being treated. Most patients achieve desired results in a single appointment. The cost depending upon how many units of tox are used.
