What Is Botox and How Does It Work?

Botox and Xeomin are classified as neuromodulators and work by blocking the nerve signals that cause muscles to contract and create wrinkles. In other words, Botox works as a shield between the brain and the muscle. Even if your brain is signaling to the muscle to move, Botox will cause the muscle to remain still. Once these signals are blocked, the muscles remain relaxed, even when the patience face is in motion. This effect smooths dynamic wrinkles like frown lines, forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet, or any wrinkle that appears even when the patient smiles, laughs, or frowns. Neuromodulators can also be highly beneficial for other medical purposes.

Benefits of Botox

Botox has become one of the world’s most popular treatments because of its ability to create exceptional aesthetic results with no downtime or surgery. Botox and Xeomin commonly improve the appearance of:

  • Crow’s Feet
  • Forehead lines and wrinkles
  • Frown lines
  • Can treat a drooping brow
  • Lips (Botox lip flip)

In addition to providing a way for people to look more youthful, Botox can also be used for a number of other health benefits such as:


How Long Will My Botox Results Last?

It’s important to remember that everyone is different, and everyone will process things differently. The Botox and Xeomin results are not permanent but can last around three to four months before wearing off. However, if you like the effects of your treatment, you can choose to maintain your new look with another round of injections. When neuromodulators are continued, they can gradually train the muscles to stay relaxed. So, after a couple of treatments, you may only need to have a Botox injection twice a year. Repeated doses have also been proven to reduce stress on the skin. By preventing the repeated stretching and folding of the skin, there is the possibility of slowing the formation of wrinkles in treated areas.

The Difference Between Botox & Xeomin

Botox and Xeomin are derived from the same primary compound, making them very similar in how they work. Xeomin is unique in that it contains the active ingredients that make neuromodulators work but without any additives. There has been research that credits using a single component could prevent the body from developing a resistance to neuromodulators, rendering them ineffective, which is why some patients and doctors prefer Xeomin. Ultimately, the best choice is the one you and your doctor are most comfortable using to reach your individual goals. At Aesthetically Yours, we will recommend the best option for you based on his experience and knowledge of each product.

Choose Aesthetically Yours for Your Botox Treatment

Though there are very few risks involved with neuromodulators, having a treatment done by an inexperienced doctor can create unwanted side effects. When too much Botox is inserted, or it’s injected into the wrong site, the results can lean more towards a “frozen” and unnatural look. Improper Botox injection techniques can also lead to temporary drooping brows or eyelids, and in some cases ocular pain. 

As an accomplished neuroscientist, Dr. Taqi has undergone rigorous training and has gained experience working daily with complexities of the brain, giving him a deeper understanding of anatomy and physiology of brain, nerves and muscles. Dr. Taqi frequently performs neurological injections, which have the smallest margin of error. As such, he is able to apply a precise placement only to the muscles that are causing wrinkles while avoiding the muscle groups that still allow your face to make expressions like frown and blink. With your safety and desired results always in mind, Dr. Taqi is the superior choice when it comes to Botox® injections.

Thousand Oaks Botox/Xeomin Treatment FAQs

The cost of your Botox or Xeomin will be determined by how many units you need to reach your desired results. If you want to treat more than one area, this will require more product. During your consultation,  our team will assess the areas you want to treat and help you determine the amount of Botox needed to reach your desired results.

The number of units needed primarily depends on the targeted area. Whereas the chin usually takes around 2-6 units, crow’s feet can take up to 15 units, and frown lines 25 units. Our  goal is to help  patients achieve the best results with the smallest amount of product needed by precise placement.

Botox or Xeomin can be used to treat lines and wrinkles on a number of different areas of the face, including the forehead, eye area (crow’s feet), and lips. It can also be used to soften the appearance of dimples on the chin. Botox is also often injected into the jaw muscle to help alleviate the painful symptoms of TMJ and migraines.

Botox/Xeomin  treatments at Aesthetically Yours  are quick and safe and involve minimal discomfort. This treatment requires zero anesthesia or recovery time, and some patients even choose to have their treatments done during their lunch break from work. Most patients report a small amount of discomfort during the injection process, but our team can provide a topical anesthetic to numb the skin and ease any pain if needed.

Each patient’s experience is different. It can usually take up to 3-5 days to see the effects of Botox, with two weeks to see the full effects.

Full, youthful lips are always in style—and Botox can help you achieve them. If you want to enhance your lips but want to use fillers, you might consider Botox/Xeomin injections in a quick and simple procedure called a “lip flip.”

As the name implies, lip flip involves using neuromodulators  to enhance the upper lip. With just a few quick injections, the upper lip is able to relax and roll slightly upward, which allows for more of the upper lip to be visible. It is an excellent choice for patients who want a more subtle enhancement than fillers are able to provide or for those who wish to enhance the shape of their upper lip.

To perform a lip flip , our specialist  will make a series of injections just above the upper lip, into the muscle that circles the mouth called the orbicularis oris muscle. Botox temporarily relaxes the part of the muscle that is over the upper lip, causing the lip to roll slightly upward to appear more defined and voluminous. This muscle relaxation can also help smooth vertical lines along the upper lip.
