How BOTOX® Boosts Your Confidence

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a household name. In fact, the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery even named Botox the most popular cosmetic injection

Botox is a neuromodulator that aestheticians use to counter wrinkles. But it isn’t the only neuromodulator available. Xeomin® is similar to Botox and is just as effective. Both neuromodulators have long records of safety and efficacy.

Although Botox and Xeomin are well-known for their ability to smooth out facial and neck wrinkles, neuromodulators do more than improve the surface of your skin. Botox and Xeomin boost your confidence by putting a more youthful look into your own hands. 

At Blake GI Med Spa Services in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, our medical and aesthetic experts use Botox to transform your look and your self-esteem. Here’s how -- and why -- neuromodulators work their magic.

Botox blasts dynamic wrinkles

Frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines are considered “dynamic” wrinkles. They’re formed by the repeated muscle contractions that occur when you:

Botox and Xeomin blast those wrinkles by calming the dynamic muscles that cause them. Botox and Xeomin contain a small amount of a purified form of the nerve blocking agent, botulinum toxin. 

The toxin blocks signals to the nerves and gently relaxes specific muscles so that they don’t contract so severely. Once the underlying muscles relax, your skin does, too. Your skin smooths out and lies flat again, as it did when you were younger and wrinkle-free.

We selectively inject your choice of neuromodulator only into the muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles. Results start to appear within 24-48 hours. The effects last for months. 

In just 10-15 minutes, your treatment is done. The neuromodulator causes your muscles to relax, which reduces the appearance of unwanted wrinkles, restoring a smoother, fresher appearance. We use just enough neuromodulator to calm your dynamic muscles, but still allow you a natural range of expressions.

Let us help you reach your goals

During your consultation, you share with us the areas on which you want to focus and what your aesthetic goals are. You may even bring in photos of your younger self. We use Botox and Xeomin to treat:

Botox or Xeomin don’t have to be the only components in your aesthetic plan either. If you have other goals, we may recommend other cosmetic services, such as dermal fillers to address the loss of facial volume or to create a sexy pout.

Prepare for your treatment

Botox and Xeomin are safe, effective, and FDA-approved. However, as with all procedures, you may experience side effects. For instance, redness at the injection site and bruising are two common (and temporary) side effects. 

Reduce your risk of bruising by avoiding anti-inflammatory medications, aspirin, and blood thinners at least two weeks before your treatment. We give you additional guidance during your consultation.
