How Does BOTOX® Work?

BOTOX® is an injectable drug that weakens muscle to help with lines and wrinkles. In order for any muscle in the body to contract, the nerves release a chemical messenger at the point where your nerve endings meet your muscle cells. Acetylcholine then attaches to those receptors and causes the cells to contract. BOTOX® injections stop the release of acetylcholine, which prevents the muscle cells from contracting. In this way, BOTOX® helps the muscles become less stiff.

In small amounts, BOTOX® reduces and prevents skin wrinkles and treats some medical conditions. This protein made from Botulinum toxin can help keep you looking younger longer by disrupting the nerve signaling processes that cause muscles to contract. In addition to aesthetic purposes, BOTOX® is currently being evaluated for the treatment of many other medical conditions, including, but not limited to:

  • Osteoarthritis pain
  • Certain types of incontinence
  • Excessive sweating
  • Lazy eye
  • Migraines

How Does XEOMIN® Work?

Xeomin is an injectable drug that contains botulinum type A. This toxin blocks muscle movement in the area where the drug has been administered. Because it prevents facial muscles from completely contracting, Xeomin® makes fine lines and wrinkles significantly less noticeable. Most patients who have had a Xeomin® injection notice a smoother, more youthful-looking face in about 3–4 months. This botulinum treatment is very effective on frown lines between the eyebrows, but it is also used to treat:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Fine lines above the lip
  • Furrowed brows
  • Other cosmetic concerns

What Are Dermal Fillers?

If you have an acquaintance who suddenly looks amazing but doesn’t look like they had a facelift, they probably got dermal fillers. Fillers work by increasing the skin’s supply of hyaluronic acid. They revitalize and add volume to the skin, instantly diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. In addition, fillers give the skin a natural, softer look.

Dermal fillers are made of soft injectable gel that consists of stabilized, non-animal hyaluronic acid. The gel is tissue-friendly and closely resembles the natural hyaluronic acid that already exists in the body. Fillers are long-lasting and semi-permanent. Fillers can do what makeup alone cannot, and they last between 6 and 9 months!
