To enhance your appearance subtly
Your XEOMIN or BOTOX Treatment
Dr. Arledge or one of her highly trained nurses will use a tiny needle to inject the natural purified protein derivative contained in XEOMIN and BOTOX. Most patients experience minimal discomfort during the short appointment.
Here’s how it works: XEOMIN and BOTOX Cosmetic target and relax the tiny muscles responsible for dynamic wrinkles, such as frown lines and crow’s feet. Those muscles come into play when you scowl, laugh, or smile. By limiting the muscle contractions that result in facial lines and creases, these injectables soften dynamic wrinkles, resulting in a significantly younger appearance.
BOTOX for Hyperhidrosis
If you have hyperhidrosis, Dr. Arledge uses BOTOX to treat the areas of excessive perspiration. It’s important to recognize that perspiration is a natural function through which your body regulates your temperature. However, hyperhidrosis can result in emotional and physical discomfort.
Here’s how it works: Dr. Arledge uses BOTOX to disable the nerves that are overstimulating your sweat glands. FDA-approved to treat underarm perspiration when topical treatments do not suffice, BOTOX can reduce or eliminate sweating in the treated areas with just a quick series of injections in the targeted nerves.
Recovery & Results
The recovery process and benefits depend on whether you were treated for facial rejuvenation or hyperhidrosis:
- Recovery & Results After Facial Rejuvenation: No downtime is required, and you can resume your regular routine after your appointment. Dr. Arledge recommends avoiding strenuous exercise or lying flat for a few hours after treatment. Some patients experience mild swelling or bruising, which can be minimized with ice. Within 5 to 10 days, you’ll notice that those crow’s feet, frown lines and treated wrinkles are dramatically improved. Most patients enjoy the benefits for up to 3 months. By scheduling regular BOTOX appointments, you can maintain that younger appearance.
- Recovery & Results After Hyperhidrosis Treatment: Although you can return to work after your treatment, Dr. Arledge recommends avoiding strenuous activities as well as the use of a sauna for the rest of that day. Most patients require treatment only once or twice a year to maintain the benefits.
