About BOTOX and Xeomin

To help in aging gracefully and to prevent facial wrinkles and lines from forming on the top portion of the face, Thaker Cosmetic and Wellness in Las Vegas, NV is proud to offer BOTOX and Xeomin to local individuals. These injectable procedures provide outstanding results and are very common among both men and women. Both products can make a significant enhancement to dynamic lines, which are made from expressive movement with the muscles contracting on the forehead and around the eyes. The lines disappear as the face relaxes, but dynamic folds can still exist. BOTOX and Xeomin are made of a clean and purified strain of botulinum toxin (type A) that temporarily blocks the movements of the facial muscle. To soften these dynamic wrinkles, the products are injected to smooth the skin. These injections are administered by cosmetic surgeon and board-certified family practitioner Dr. Reuben Thaker between the eyebrows, on the Crow's feet, and across the forehead.

Ideal Candidates

BOTOX and Xeomin are great for individuals who wish to soften the appearance of dynamic lines and wrinkles on their face without surgery. They can also be used as a preventive treatment even if you do not show signs of aging — keep in mind how often you tend to make facial expressions. They are a terrific nonsurgical option if you are frustrated by forehead lines or parallel lines between the brows and around the eyes. If you have deeper lines, a filler product may be more suitable. In addition, if you are older with sagging skin and widespread wrinkles, you may be considered for a facelift. This offers a more dramatic result, and it is longer-lasting. 

Procedure Technique

Xeomin and BOTOX treatments are administered in an outpatient procedure conveniently at Thaker Cosmetic and Wellness. If it is your first time to visit us in Las Vegas, NV, we typically perform the injection on the same appointment as your consultation with Dr. Thaker. You will be asked to make several facial expressions using the upper face, such as squinting, frowning, etc., which will allow us to visualize where the injections should be placed. The skin will be cleansed and BOTOX or Xeomin will be applied with a fine needle, followed by a cold compress to help minimize discomfort and bruising. You can request a numbing cream to make the procedure more comfortable, but it generally is unnecessary. Your injections will typically take about 10 – 15 minutes to complete, and then you can resume your normal routine as soon as you feel able.

What to Expect

After the procedure, you may get back to your regular routine, but strenuous activity should be skipped for at least one day. You will be asked to sleep with your head elevated for the first night and to not touch your face, which may accidentally spread the treatment to other areas. The treated areas of the face may appear swollen, bruised, or red for 2 – 3 days, but you will not develop any lasting or serious side effects. In many cases, it typically takes about 5 – 7 days before the full effects can be seen. The results usually last 3 – 4 months. You should speak to your injector about how often to schedule your next appointment at Thaker Cosmetic and Wellness to extend your results.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much do BOTOX and Xeomin cost?
The cost for your injections will depend on which and how much product is used. This will vary based on your needs and goals. During your consultation, Dr. Thaker will develop your personal treatment plan before he can estimate your costs. Both products can produce beautiful results when performed by a skilled surgeon, like Dr. Thaker, but it can be unsafe if done by someone without training, which is why it's better to avoid places offering cheap or knock-off injections. To save money, ask about the Brilliant Distinctions Rewards Program so you can get points for BOTOX, Xeomin, and other Allergan products.

How long will my results last?
Your results may last up to four months. Most patients make an appointment every season to maintain their results, but you may come back sooner. If you are getting injections while you are younger as a preventive treatment, you may be able to schedule treatments further apart. After listening to your goals and developing your treatment plan, Dr. Thaker will be able to estimate when you should schedule your next appointment.

What's the difference between wrinkle relaxers and fillers?
Wrinkle relaxers (like BOTOX and Xeomin) and wrinkle fillers (like Juvéderm and Restylane) are both treatments that reduce wrinkles and smooth fine lines. BOTOX and Xeomin relax overused facial muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles, like frown lines (between the eyebrows), Crow's feet (in the outer corners of the eyes), forehead wrinkles, and smile lines. Injectable fillers add volume under the skin to correct hollow areas and decrease static wrinkles. After hearing your goals, Dr. Thaker may recommend BOTOX, Xeomin, fillers, or a combination of injectables for a "liquid facelift."

What's the difference between BOTOX and Xeomin?
BOTOX and Xeomin are brands of wrinkle relaxers that use botulinum toxin (type A). Each of these relaxes facial muscles to smooth dynamic wrinkles, but each formula is designed to suit specific areas and needs. There are subtle differences between them, including the dosing amounts, treatment spread, and length of results. Dr. Thaker will choose the best injection to fit your goals.
