No one is immune to the aging process. As we get older, the skin naturally starts to sag, loosen and form lines and wrinkles. The good news is that even though you can’t avoid getting older, you don’t have to live with these signs of aging – and Vermont Facial Aesthetics can help. If you are unhappy with the facial lines and wrinkles that have appeared over the years, there are non-surgical treatments that can address these aesthetic concerns. At Vermont Facial Aesthetics, we offer XEOMIN® and BOTOX® Cosmetic.

BOTOX® Cosmetic and XEOMIN® are injectable treatments designed to relax the muscles of the face. When the targeting muscles are relaxed, they no longer contract and will not cause wrinkles or lines in the face. This reduces the lines that are caused when you use muscles in your face to make expressions. Both BOTOX® and XEOMIN® injections are non-surgical and minimally invasive. The most commonly treated areas are the lines around your face including your crow’s feet and frown lines.

BOTOX® and XEOMIN® are both derived from botulinum toxin. They are both therapeutic muscle-relaxing agents that work toward the motor nerve endings. They give you temporary relief from your wrinkles and frown lines and in other areas. They can improve many areas that muscles have affected over years of use.

Following BOTOX® or XEOMIN® treatment, you should see the effects anywhere from a couple of hours after the procedure up to a couple of days. In most cases, the results last from three to eight months, after which you can have a follow-up treatment. The more times you have the injections, the longer your results last because the muscles become “trained” to remain relaxed.

Injectable treatments are among the most common in the aesthetic industry. BOTOX® and XEOMIN® are the more common neurotoxins that work at the muscular level. For injectable treatments that can restore volume, dermal fillers are an appropriate option. Unlike neurotoxins, dermal fillers are injected under the skin into the tissue using hyaluronic acid or collagen to plump the skin, fill in fine lines, and even enhance the lips. Often, neurotoxins can be combined with dermal fillers for better facial rejuvenation. This helps address multiple common signs of aging.
