BOTOX AND XEOMIN​
In Nixa, MO

Botox and Xeomin are FDA-approved purified proteins which are injected into targeted muscles in the face. They temporarily block nerve signals that cause muscle movements — essentially relaxing the muscle — which reduces or eliminates fine lines and wrinkles.

Most of our wrinkles are caused by years of repetitive muscle movement (such as frowning or raising our eyebrows). Since Botox and Xeomin work by relaxing our facial muscles, wrinkles and fine lines are reduced. 

It is important to note that Botox and Xeomin cannot treat wrinkles caused by sun damage or gravity. In cases where wrinkles aren’t caused by repetitive muscle movement, Dr. Sutherland might recommend a dermal filler instead. Fillers work by filling in lines and wrinkles with a gel made of hyaluronic acid, which feels like real tissue.

Botox and Xeomin can reduce:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles

What is Xeomin?

Many people have heard of Botox, but not Xeomin. Botox was the first injectable on the market containing botulinum, but now there are other options. Both are excellent treatments for reducing fine lines and wrinkles, but each is particularly good at eliminating certain types of wrinkles.

Pros & cons:

  • Xeomin can work faster and last longer than Botox
  • Since Botox has additives, it can create resistance to the treatment over time (Xeomin has no additives, and has been shown to reduce this resistance)
  • Xeomin is more effective at treating wrinkles in between the eyebrows
  • Botox is more effective at treating crow’s feet, frown lines, and more
  • Xeomin is less expensive than Botox

Dr. Sutherland will consult with you to find out what you’re wanting to achieve, and will decide which treatment is better for you.

How the Procedure Works

No anesthesia is needed when injecting Botox or Xeomin. Within 2-14 days of the injection, the treated facial muscles become temporarily relaxed, causing the overlying skin to lay flat and unwrinkled.  The untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion allowing facial expressions to be unaffected.

Injections only take a few minutes and will remain effective for 3-6 months, and then the treatment can be repeated. There is no recovery time after an injection – you can return to work and your normal activities immediately.
