Botox® & Xeomin® are non-surgical, non-invasive injections made of botulinum & incobotulinum toxins, purified proteins, which target facial wrinkles caused by muscle activity by reducing the appearance of the facial wrinkles by blocking the signals from the nerve to the muscle.
They are commonly used to help eliminate wrinkles in-between the eyes (frown lines), around the eyes (crow’s feet) and on the forehead (forehead lines). The procedure generally takes about 15 to 30 minutes and the effects typically last about 3 to 4 months.
