Toxin Injections in Reston, VA
Botox®, Xeomin®, and DAXXIFY™ are therapeutic muscle-relaxing agents. They are popular and safe non-surgical cosmetic procedures used to reduce or eliminate facial wrinkles that are caused by muscle contractions. The goal of these neurotoxin injections is not to keep patients from expressing themselves but simply to keep them from making facial grimaces and frowns that have become habits. Toxins, when administered in the correct dose, result in limiting or relaxing muscle contractions resulting in reduced or eliminated frown lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet, neckbands, etc.
Patients will usually require Botox® and Xeomin® re-injections after 3 months, depending on the size and strength of a patient’s facial muscles. DAXXIFY™ patients may see results last for 6-9 months.
How Does it Work?
Toxins are neuromodulators that target repeated muscle contractions that occur from frowning and squinting over the years. Botox®, Xeomin®, and DAXXIFY™ temporarily reduce facial muscle activity so you’ll notice a visible smoothing of these lines.
