Botox/Xeomin are referred to as neuro-modulators. They weaken muscles and this way make skin wrinkles due to muscle motion less prominent.
As one of the most sought after treatments in the cosmetic industry, insertion of Botox/Xeomin can help restore your skin to look younger and brighter, starting with Botox more than 15 years ago, along now with the more recently developed Xeomin, which appears to be gaining popularity in combating wrinkles in a safe and effective way.

What do neuro-modulators (Botox/Xeomin) treatment involve?
This is a non-surgical procedure performed by a trained doctor with the help of a fine needle, which is injected into the selected muscles. Post operatively there is minimum discomfort and an anesthetic is usually not required and normal activities can be resumed.
Neuro-modulator treatments are not a permanent solution. The procedures involve small needle insertion and generally take between 5 – 15 minutes, depending on the extent of wrinkles and the treatment area and is unique to every patient.
COMMONLY TRESTED AREAS
- Glabella or the frown lines between your brows
- Crow’s feet
The horizontal wrinkles and lines present on the neck. They are usually formed because of Exposure to the sun (photo damage) ,loss of collagen and elastin,as well as laxity of the platysmal muscle. These lines may be treated with Botox/Xeomin.
As the age advances the laxity of the platysmal neck muscle increases and become more hypertrophic (enlarged). Because of the enlargement of the muscles, vertical ridges or bands may become visible when the muscle is contracted. Botox/Xeomin may be used to relax the platysmal bands and diminish the appearance of the bands and we get a very good result from the treatment of these bands.
New Applications of Botox/Xeomin
