Wrinkle relaxation products are used to improve the appearance of frown lines between the eyebrows and forehead lines across the top of the face and lateral canthus lines (crow’s feet) on the sides of the eyes. Several products on the market provide similar results, and at Rejuvenation MD Medspa of Burlington we proudly offer multiple options, including Botox and Xeomin cosmetic injectable wrinkle treatments.
Botox is world renown and is used in both aesthetic and medical arenas, a tried and true cosmetic injectable. Xeomin is also an excellent choice with its results equivalent, if not better, than Botox. Both products act by inhibiting the release of acetylcholine, the chemical responsible for triggering muscle contractions that contribute to wrinkle formation. By preventing the muscles from contracting it leads to a smoother look to your skin.
We will evaluate your facial features to decide where exactly the injections should be placed at your initial visit. Then a very small needle is used to administer the medication, almost painlessly. This process takes only a few minutes and you can return to work or attend any social event within an hour, the procedure being undetectable by others. Results can be seen within a day, but more typically within 3-4 days. Results will last for 3-4 months. If you routinely have this done, you will notice that you need it less often as your skin gets used to being in a more relaxed state more often.
