Botox & Xeomin
Benefits of Botox
Botox Cosmetic is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines in adults.
Botox Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Your specialist will inject these muscles with Botox Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows.
The Xeomin Option
For our patients, we also offer an alternative to Botox with Xeomin. Xeomin is capable of providing excellent results in just one application. It is an FDA-approved formula, guaranteeing safety and effectiveness. Because it does not include any additives, the formula is more pure and natural and has fewer risks of developing side effects.

Botox is made from the botulinum toxin type A, the same bacteria responsible for botulism. That sounds really scary, but back in the 1950s scientists discovered an interesting thing about the botulinum toxin — when a minuscule amount was injected into a muscle the toxin temporarily stopped the muscle from contracting. This discovery directly led to the development of Botox.
Botox became a household name for another reason — erasing facial wrinkles. The FDA approved it for addressing wrinkles on the upper third of the face. These are crow’s feet, the 11s, and forehead lines.
