BOTOX® Cosmetic San Antonio
As we age, lines and wrinkles develop on our face from repeated facial movements and the breakdown of collagen in our skin. These lines can make some patients look older than they are, or angry and stressed when they are not. At the offices of Dr. Constance Barone, we are proud to offer the best-selling prescription injectables for wrinkles: BOTOX® Cosmetic and Xeomin®.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the best-selling prescription injectable that reduces severe wrinkles between the eyebrows and on the outer edges of the eyes. BOTOX® Cosmetic, available at our San Antonio offices, is a non-surgical solution that provides beautiful results with no downtime.
In addition to BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dr. Barone offers Xeomin®. This injectable treatment also helps to reduce wrinkles between the eyebrows and outer edges of the eyes. Like BOTOX® Cosmetic, it also requires no downtime or surgery. For more information on these injectable solutions, contact our San Antonio offices today.
How Can Injectables Help Me?
As we age, we naturally develop facial wrinkles. Some of the most prominent wrinkles are two vertical lines that appear between the eyebrows when a person squints in concentration, or frowns. When these wrinkles begin to deepen, they can create a permanently troubled or sour look, even if a person is fully relaxed and happy.
While surgical treatments like facelifts are an excellent way to reduce lines between the eyebrows and elsewhere on the face, non-surgical options like injectables are a great option for patients exploring less invasive options. If you are beginning to notice deep wrinkles between your eyebrows and "crow's feet" at the edges of your eyes, BOTOX® Cosmetic and XEOMIN® are trusted, cost-effective solutions. Maintaining a regular schedule of these injections can prevent wrinkles from deepening, and delay the need for more invasive facial surgeries.
How Do BOTOX® Cosmetic and Xeomin® Work?
These injectables are administered through a very fine needle directly into areas with wrinkles. Most patients feel only mild discomfort that subsides within a few hours. There is no recovery or downtime with these injections, and patients can continue on with their normal routines directly following treatment.
BOTOX® Cosmetic and Xeomin® are botulinum toxins. Botulinum toxins target facial muscles beneath the skin, blocking nerve impulses. By blocking these impulses, the muscles are impeded from fully contracting, so the targeted areas stay relaxed even as a patient frowns or squints.
BOTOX® Cosmetic and Xeomin® take full effect within a few days or weeks, and can last from three to six months. Dr. Barone recommends regular injections at these intervals, depending upon how long the treatment works for each patient.
Cost of Treatment
BOTOX® Cosmetic and Xeomin® are a great choice for women and men who want a cost-effective wrinkle treatment. Dr. Barone uses 25 units of either injectable per session. If you are considering an injectable wrinkle treatment, we strongly encourage you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Barone today.
