What should I expect?
Botox and Xeomin improve your skin’s appearance within days of the injection. Wrinkles are eliminated resulting in a more youthful look.

Before the injection, you will be asked to contract the facial muscles (raising your eyebrows, frowning, squinting) that affect the areas to be treated. This will help determine the best location for the injections.
