What are BOTOX and xeomin?
BOTOX and XEOMIN are purified and diluted forms of botulinum toxin type A. Botulinum toxin is a neurotoxic protein produced by the clostridium botulinum bacteria. Botulinum toxins temporarily block nerve signals to your muscles, dramatically reducing the appearance of wrinkles and lines while helping to prevent the formation of new wrinkles in the facial area. XEOMIN has particular effectiveness to address glabellar lines between the eyebrows known as "angry 11's".
In the medical industry, BOTOX and XEOMIN are also used to prevent chronic migraine, hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), cervical dystonia or repetitive neck spasm, overactive bladder, and lazy eye.
how do wrinkle relaxer treatments work?
At Vilate Med Spa, your BOTOX or XEOMIN treatment starts with a consultation with our certified and experienced esthetician, who will determine if you are an ideal candidate for the procedure. Your esthetician will review your medical history, present medical condition, allergies, and family medical history.
A physical examination is then conducted to create a treatment plan. The treatment plan will include the injection site, number of injections, and other details. You will also be briefed about the treatment before the procedure begins.
During the procedure, your esthetician will carefully identify and mark the areas on your face to be treated. The area is cleaned with a mild antiseptic cleanser. You will be offered a topical anesthetic cream or a cold pack to numb the area to avoid any discomfort. Using a narrow, fine-gauge needle, BOTOX or XEOMIN is injected directly into your facial muscle. Ice and pressure are applied in the areas being treated to avoid swelling. BOTOX and XEOMIN injections take about 10 minutes to carry out, and many people experience only minor discomfort (like a pinprick or pinching sensation). Following your visit, you are welcome to leave our Bountiful, UT, practice, and carry on with your normal routine.
AM I A CANDIDATE FOR BOTOX or xeomin?
Candidates for BOTOX and XEOMIN:
- You are 18 years of age or above
- You have realistic expectations for the treatment
- You do not have any infection, acne, cyst, or wound, among others, in the treatment area
- You have not had any recent surgery or cosmetic procedure in or near the treatment area
- You do not have any breathing problems such as asthma
- You are not pregnant, want to be pregnant, or are breastfeeding

- You do not have any disease that affects your muscles or nerves
- You are not allergic to botulinum toxin or any ingredients present in BOTOX cosmetics

is there any recovery time after wrinkle relaxer injections?
After injecting BOTOX or XEOMIN to the area, ice and pressure are applied, and you may experience a mild headache for a couple of days. Minor swelling, numbness, bruising, and redness in the area are common and will resolve in a week or two. A very few patients have experienced drooping eyelids post-treatment, which usually resolves within 2 - 3 weeks.
Your esthetician will give you post-treatment care that you must follow to avoid any unintended damage or side effects. Post-treatment care includes:
- Avoid rubbing the area that was treated
- Avoid exercise for 24 hours following the procedure
- Avoid laying down for a few hours post-treatment
There is minimal downtime associated with BOTOX and XEOMIN. You can resume your day-to-day activities immediately after the procedure.
