What Are Botox/Xeomin Injections?
Due to their ability to quickly and effectively get rid of unwanted facial wrinkles, both Botox® and Xeomin are the most popular treatments for wrinkles in North America. Historically it has been used mostly in the upper face, but now it is used anywhere on the face, neck, and even the décolleté.
Botox/Xeomin are purified non-animal protein derived from the bacterium clostridium botulinum. When expertly injected into select face and neck muscles, it induces temporary relaxation of the muscles, which helps to soften unattractive animation lines and minimize any depressive or “pulled-down” appearance.
Botox injections can also be used to block the nerve signals responsible for sweating, stopping the sweat glands from producing too much sweat. This concern is referred to as hyperhidrosis, where excessive sweating isn't always related to heat or exercise. Common areas for this type of Botox injection are the underarms, palms, and face.
