Creases in your skin can cause you to appear angry, or even older than you actually are. At Greer Plastic Surgery, we offer Botox and Xeomin treatments. Botox and Xeomin can improve the appearance of dynamic wrinkles that appear when you frown, raise your eyebrows, or even smile.
The benefits to Botox and Xeomin treatments are extensive, but many are unaware of just how simple the treatment process actually is! At Greer Plastic Surgery, we decided to explain just what you can expect from these appearance-boosting treatments, from beginning to end.

What are Botox & Xeomin?

Botox and Xeomin are different brand names of botulinum toxin. They work by preventing communication between the nerve and the muscle, thereby stopping muscles from moving. This makes wrinkles less noticeable. Botox and Xeomin are used to treat the vertical lines between the eyebrows, horizontal lines over the forehead, and crow’s feet around the eyes.

How to Prep for an injection Treatment

Avoid aspirin and ibuprofen for one week prior to your treatment, as they may increase bruising. If you are on blood thinners you can still safely have Botox or Xeomin, but you are at higher risk of bruising.

On the Day of Your Injection Treatment

You will receive several small injections with a tiny needle. Afterwards, we have you apply an ice pack for 5 to 10 minutes to prevent bruising. You may have little bumps where the medication was injected; these go away in about 10 minutes.

The risks of injection includes bruising and visible needle marks. In rare cases, the medication may diffuse into the muscles of the eyelid, causing an eye droop. This is temporary, and fortunately very rare. We recommend avoiding vigorous exercise for one hour after your treatment to decrease the risk of complications.

Effects of Botox and Xeomin in Mentor

Botox and Xeomin take about a week to take effect. After that time period, you will notice you are unable to frown, raise your eyebrows, or squint, depending on where you were treated. You may have a sensation of heavy eyebrows. This is normal and goes away after a couple days.

If you see any wrinkles you don’t like or have any concerns at all, we are happy to see you for a follow up visit 7-10 days after your treatment. We can do a touch-up at that time if needed.

Botox and Xeomin both last about three months. We recommend scheduling your next treatment before you leave the office to get the best results.

Dr.Greer and her wonderful staff are not the norm. They all go above and beyond to make sure you are comfortable. From my very first phone call, to now 2 weeks post op from my tummy tuck and breast lift surgery, I have felt at ease, and confident in Dr. Greer’s care. I HIGHLY recommend her. My after care was suburb, every visit I feel like she listens to me, not to mention how great my results are. Extremely knowledgeable and caring doctor.

From my first visit to consecutive, the staff has always been kind, efficient and thorough with all my questions. Most importantly, honest. Something I felt fell short in previous practices I had visited regarding what I wanted, opposed to what I really needed and would benefit from. Dr. Greer is very personable and down to earth. I am so happy to have been referred to Dr. Greer's practice
