Reduce facial lines and wrinkles without the long-term commitment.

We understand the appeal of cosmetic dermatology. After all, as we get older we start to notice changes in the appearance of our skin thatbotox we might not like. Perhaps you have pretty visible crow’s feet around your eyes from years of squinting in the sun or those forehead wrinkles are beginning to look rather deep. Whatever the case might be, our Rocky River, OH, med spa doctor, Dr. Curt Birchall, M.D. is here to tell you about a fast, simple and non-invasive approach to temporarily reduce and eliminate certain lines and wrinkles.

What are Botox and Xeomin?

Botox has been around for a while so chances are good that you’ve at least heard of this cosmetic treatment. Botox and Xeomin are an injectable solution that when administered into certain muscles of the face it scrambles the signals that are sent from the nerves to the muscles that tell them to contract. Now that the muscles can’t contract it will instantly smooth away certain lines and wrinkles.

What problems can Botox and Xeomin address?

Botox and Xeomin are designed to handle lines and wrinkles of the face that show up when making facial expressions. For example, smiling in front of the mirror you may notice that lines appear around the mouth, nose, and eyes. These are dynamic wrinkles, and these are the kinds of wrinkles that Botox and Xeomin treat.

What goes into getting Botox and Xeomin?

Getting Botox and Xeomin from our Rocky River anti-aging doctor is really simple. It only takes a couple of minutes to administer these thin needles into the skin. While there is a slight pitching sensation when the needles pierce the skin, most people don’t find it to be bothersome or painful. Of course, if you are extremely sensitive or nervous about your upcoming treatment, let us know. We can apply a numbing cream over the area before administering Botox. While there might be minor stinging or redness after treatment, most people can go about their daily activities immediately after.

When will results appear and how long do they last?

You won’t notice results immediately after treatment, you will have a wait a few days before you see the changes. It can take up to a week to see the full effects. Of course, results are only designed to last between 3-6 months before fading away. Do you love your results? If so, you can continue to come in every 3-6 months to get maintenance injections to keep your results for longer.
