Plastic Surgery Specialists uses neuromodulators, Botox® and Xeomin®, to reduce or even eliminate the lines on the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the eyes, by relaxing the muscles responsible for the development of static and dynamic lines or wrinkles.
After treatment, the muscles gradually become relaxed allowing the overlying skin to appear smooth and unwrinkled. Alone, or in combination with other facial rejuvenation procedures, these products can offer a significant improvement in one’s appearance.
Within days, Plastic Surgery Specialists ’s patients may see an improvement that can last up to 4 months. Keep in mind that results may vary and if you do not continue treatments, the lines will gradually look like they did before treatment.
HOW THE PROCEDURE IS PERFORMED
It’s a simple, 10-minute, non-surgical process. our doctors will administer several tiny injections of Botox or Xeomin directly into the muscles that cause moderate to severe wrinkles. No anesthesia is required, and discomfort is usually minimal and brief.
There is no recovery time. Minimal redness and swelling at the injection site usually resolves within hours.

ANSWERS TO COMMON QUESTIONS
Will I be able to make facial expressions?
Treatments with Botox or Xeomin will not radically change your facial appearance. You can still frown or look surprised – without the wrinkles and creases between your brows.
What are Botox and Xeomin?
Botox and Xeomin are both derived from clostridium botulinum bacterium. During treatment, our patients receive very low doses of the product via a few tiny injections directly into the muscles that cause those stubborn lines. The treatment is usually done in about 10 minutes, and no recovery time is needed. Within days, you may see an improvement that can last up to 4 months.

How does the treatment work?
Those moderate to severe frown lines between your brows form over time as the result of muscle activity. BOTOX is injected directly into the muscles between your brows. It works by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the injected muscles; this reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those persistent lines to form.
When will I see results from the treatment?
Within 5 to 7 days, you may see a marked improvement in the moderate to severe frown lines between your brows. Lines continue to improve for up to a month, and results can last for up to 4 months.
How long will it last?
Results from treatment with Botox and Xeomin can last for up to 4 months. If you discontinue treatment, the frown lines between your brows gradually will look like they did before treatment.
Is treatment with BOTOX painful?
Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. Many people are in and out of the physician’s office without downtime.
Will my facial expressions continue to look natural?
Although the results are visible, a treatment with Botox and Xeomin will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you “had work done.” The muscle activity that causes frown lines between the brows is simply reduced, so you can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases between your brows.
What will happen to the frown lines between my brows if I choose not to continue treatments?
If you do not continue treatments, the moderate to severe frown lines between your brows will gradually look like they did before treatment.
