There are many options available to help with the appearance to give your face a fresh, youthful look. Neuromodulators, such as BOTOX® and XEOMIN® are tried and true. They have been safely used for more than 30 years. BOTOX® injections are ideal, as they are quick to administer and specifically target the areas where wrinkles form, with no downtime.
BOTOX® and XEOMIN® relaxes facial muscles that become enlarged from stress, such as those caused by frowning, and grinding teeth. Once relaxed, the face looks more relaxed and well rested, and less angry. There are many scientific studies that also show that this relaxation in fact helps people feel more relaxed, by reducing frowning and clenching and grinding of the teeth. It also helps reduce the incidence and intensity of headaches.
XEOMIN® is another neuromodulator which is very similar to BOTOX®, with certain advantages. Interested in learning more? Please book a complimentary consultation!

Frequently Asked Questions
What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is the brand name for a purified, low-molecular weight protein made from botulinum toxin. BOTOX® is typically used to treat dynamic wrinkles — that is, those that form due to facial movements such as squinting and smiling — by stopping those muscles from contracting and thereby smoothing out the wrinkles.
Over time, dynamic wrinkles become static wrinkles that do not go away, so in this way BOTOX® can be used both to treat dynamic wrinkles and as a preventative measure for static ones.
What is XEOMIN®?
XEOMIN® is also a neuromodulator made from botulinum toxin. It is a different brand of the identical purified protein as BOTOX®. It is used in a similar way, to treat dynamic lines from exaggerated movements that can make us look tired and angry. XEOMIN® has slightly different characteristics than BOTOX®, which will be explained during your consultation.
Who Can Perform BOTOX® and Xeomin® Injections?
For the most safe and effective treatment — and the best results — BOTOX® and XEOMIN® injections should only be administered by a licensed and experienced professional, like our experts at Kingsway Dermatology. We will analyze your facial structure and expressions, as well as your overall aesthetic goals, to craft a customized treatment plan just for you.
Our dermatologists are highly trained master injectors, and our technique and experience allow us to provide you with outcomes that look completely natural. We’ll treat as few muscles as necessary to prevent wrinkle-forming contractions, while preserving your ability to show facial expressions, avoiding the “frozen” look that can be caused by over-injecting.
What Can I Expect From BOTOX® and XEOMIN® Therapy?
During your treatment, you might feel a slight pinching sensation, but the injections are gentle and, for some, almost imperceptible. Occasionally there may be a tiny bruise at the injection site, but it will disappear within an hour.
Your treatment plan will include how much BOTOX® and XEOMIN® will be administered and the precise location of injections, as well as how frequently the treatment should be performed to maximize and maintain the results.
How Long Does BOTOX® and XEOMIN® Last?
BOTOX® and XEOMIN® injections break down naturally over three to six months, depending on the area it is injected into and how often the muscle typically moves. Because of its temporary nature, you may choose to visit us for regular treatments to preserve an ongoing wrinkle-free, relaxed look.
Are BOTOX® and XEOMIN® Injections My Only Option?
BOTOX® and XEOMIN® injections will effectively minimize the appearance of certain facial wrinkles and lines, but you may wish to combine BOTOX® and XEOMIN® with other procedures to achieve your desired look. Depending on what those are, we’ll be able to recommend treatment options that will meet your unique needs.
