All about BOTOX
BOTOX is a popular cosmetic injection used to treat and prevent wrinkles caused by smiling, frowning, and other repetitious expressions. BOTOX helps stop the formation of wrinkles to give you a younger-looking appearance. It is a popular treatment option for frown lines, Crow’s feet, and horizontal forehead lines.
XEOMIN (incobotulinumtoxinA), is a cosmetic injection for the treatment of moderate to severe frown lines. The formula is developed from a bacteria known as IncobotulinumtoxinA.
Upon injection, the solution blocks nerve activity in the facial muscles that cause frown lines. It works by causing a reduction in nerve activity within the muscles, which helps to smooth the skin and prevent new wrinkles from forming.
Comparing XEOMIN to BOTOX
The effects of XEOMIN take place in about a week and will last for 3 – 6 months. XEOMIN is comparable to BOTOX in terms of when it takes effect and how long the results last.
XEOMIN should never be used interchangeably with BOTOX or other botulinum products.
Risks of XEOMIN and BOTOX
With all cosmetic injections, such as BOTOX and XEOMIN, there is always some risk of mild bruising or bleeding at the injection site, which quickly clears up in a day or two. If you should notice bruising, apply a cool compress to the area.
On rare occasions, some patients could suffer a minor allergic reaction to cosmetic injections, which can cause swelling at the injection site, itching, or shortness of breath.
Prior to undergoing cosmetic injections, you should discuss your health history, questions, and concerns with Dr. Tumbaga at Wellness Diagnostics and Medispa in Temecula, CA.
