Facial Esthetics with BOTOX® Treatment or Xeomin®
The dentist who enhances your smile can now enhance your face
At our Serenity Dental offices in Lutz and Wesley Chapel, Dr. Nilash Patel performs BOTOX® Cosmetic, BOTOX® TMJ, and Xeomin® treatments to relax facial muscles. BOTOX® and Xeomin® injections are among the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures in the United States to stop muscle contractions in the face and smooth out the skin where wrinkles have developed due to muscle contractions. BOTOX and Xeomin are also used to relax facial and TMJ muscles in the treatment of chronic TMD or facial pain and to relax the upper lip of patients who have gummy smiles or difficulty adjusting to lip placement around new dentures or orthodontics.
Pharmacologicaly, the main difference between the two is that Xeomin uses the purest form of incobotulinumtoxinA, lacking some proteins that BOTOX contains. This, however, makes little to no difference in the overall result. Patients who want quicker results tend to use Xeomin, because once it is injected the protein becomes active immediately.
These are the areas where BOTOX® and Xeomin® are most commonly used to smooth facial wrinkles:
- Horizontal forehead lines
- Vertical “11” lines between the eyebrows
- “Crow’s feet” lines at the outside corners of the eyes
- Frown lines around the lips
Safety and Frequency of Treatment
