What is BOTOX® and Xeomin®?
As we age, our skin is affected by sun damage, loss of elasticity due to age, gravity, and environmental toxins. These cumulative effects result in wrinkles and lines on the facial skin that make a person look much older. These wrinkles caused by repeated muscle contraction are commonly called dynamic wrinkles. These types of wrinkles are found on the forehead, the nasal bridge (glabellar region), and around the corners of the eyes (crow’s feet).
Cosmetic intervention with BOTOX® and Xeomin® can be an excellent way to restore a more youthful facial look. Botulinum toxin injectable treatment is the number one cosmetic treatment in the world because treaments are quick, safe, and the results are phenomenal.

How Does BOTOX® and Xeomin® Work?
BOTOX® and Xeomin® is a purified form of botulinum toxin, which is a neuromodulator known for its muscle-relaxing affects. When injected directly into the muscle, BOTOX® and Xeomin® can temporarily reduce lines and wrinkles by causing the muscle to relax so that the lines in the overlying skin disappear. The calming effect of the injections creates a smoother, more refreshed look. The entire treatment usually takes only about ten minutes and no recovery time is needed.

What areas can be treated with BOTOX® and Xeomin®?
Dr. Nina-Cecilia Santos offers a variety of injectable treatments for both facial aesthetics as well as therapeutic TMD treatment. We address everything from wrinkles to migraines! Some of her services include:
