BOTOX / Xeomin & Fillers
What is BOTOX?BOTOX®, an extremely common and effective in-office procedure, is used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the face. This is a very popular procedure, and is proven to be safe and effective. BOTOX® injections are excellent for getting rid of frown lines and wrinkles on the forehead. XEOMIN® is very similar to BOTOX® in that it is used to treat moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows, but may be better suited for those who do not respond well to BOTOX®.
BOTOX can prevent up to 9 headache days a month!While BOTOX® is used primarily as a cosmetic procedure, it can serve a functional purpose as well. BOTOX® has been proven to reduce chronic migraines in adults. BOTOX® can be injected every 12 weeks by one of our doctors here at Hinsdale to prevent migraines. BOTOX® can prevent up to 9 headache days a month, allowing our patients freedom from chronic migraine. Fillers such as Restylane® are used to fill in wrinkles around the mouth and on the forehead, and can also be used to for fuller lips, sunken in eyes and hollow cheeks.
