Injectables and fillers

INJECTABLES

Looking your best helps you to feel your best, and this all works together to achieve overall wellbeing. This is why we offer versatile cosmetic injectables to address a variety of aesthetic concerns, from wrinkles to cellulite to fat reduction.

Neurotoxins

Our skilled providers have honed the use of toxins like BOTOX and Xeomin to not only smooth and soften existing lines and wrinkles, but take preventive measures to keep new ones from forming.

Our injectors at WE SkinBar will clinically assess your musculature and prescribe a dosage that allows you to maintain natural expression while achieving control of overactive muscle movement.

BOTOX

Botox® is beloved worldwide for its simple, convenient treatments and excellent results. This popular cosmetic injectable temporarily smooths forehead lines, lip lines, vertical eyebrow lines, crow’s feet, and more.

BOTOX: The Gold Standard for Treating Wrinkles

Botox has made a name for itself as the gold standard for reducing the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles, as well as preventing future wrinkles from developing in younger patients. Since 2002, Botox has been keeping faces looking refreshed, rejuvenated, and more youthful.

MOST COMMONLY TREATED AREAS WITH BOTOX
  • Vertical lines between the eyebrows
  • Horizontal forehead lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Smoker’s lines around the mouth
  • Bunny lines at the nose
  • Downturned corners of the mouth
  • Masseter muscles that cause TMJ
  • Peau d'orange of the chin
  • Vertical neck bands

THE SCIENCE OF BOTOX

When you make an expression such as a frown or a squint, eventually a wrinkle will form due to the years of muscle use. Botox works by temporarily blocking the transmission of nerve impulses that go to these muscles. By stopping the muscles that are creating wrinkles, the wrinkles become much less visible.

What to expect during a Botox Treatment

Patients love how quick, painless, and convenient Botox treatments are. The typical session time is 15-20 minutes, with no downtime. Before the injections, your skin will be cleansed and then ice may be applied if you prefer. Our expert aesthetic injector will maximize comfort with advanced injection techniques and specially designed needles.

What to expect after a Botox Treatment

Early results are apparent 4-5 days after receiving your Botox injections, but optimal results are seen in two weeks. At this time, most patients feel refreshed and more confident with their new look. You will have a two-week follow-up with us to check your results. In order to maintain your outcome, you will need to return for maintenance injections after a few months.

WHAT TO AVOID:
Although you’ll be able to return to your regular day, common side effects after receiving Botox injections are mild swelling and redness at the injection sites. These should subside after an hour. Bruising is also possible.
Although there’s no major downtime with Botox, there are some physical restrictions:
  • Do not lie down for four hours after treatment
  • Do not exercise or undergo strenuous activity for 24 hours
  • Do not have a facial or massage for a couple of days

BOTOX FAQs

How long does BOTOX last?

With adequate dosing your treatment will typically last 3-4 months. Areas where you may want increased facial expressions or a VERY natural look, treatment may only last 1-3 months.

Will I look overdone or frozen?

No. Botox injection is a technique sensitive treatment. A skilled injector should not make you lose the ability to show expression. It is important to see a licensed, trained, medical expert and that you discuss your desired results with this professional.

Does it hurt?

Most patients report the injection feeling like a little pinch. You may choose to use ice or a topical numbing cream to numb the area before treatment.

How long does the treatment take?

Approximately 15 minutes and requires no downtime.

Are there any side effects?

3% of patients during clinical studies experience eyelid drooping and 1% experienced eyelid swelling. Other possible, yet uncommon, side effects include dry mouth, tiredness, headache, neck pain, vision problems and allergic reactions.

This is a very safe and common procedure.

What is XEOMIN?

XEOMIN is an injectable used to temporarily treat any moderate to severe frown lines or crow’s feet lines between the eyebrows. Botulinum toxin type A, a purified protein, is an active component in XEOMIN that is injected into the facial muscles to revitalize lines from aging. Contact us today to schedule a consultation appointment and see if XEOMIN is right for you.

Xeomin

Turn back the clock with Xeomin! As we age, fine lines and wrinkles start to appear on our faces and add years to our appearance. These creases can sap your self-confidence and even affect how others see you. That is why West End SkinBar is proud to offer Xeomin treatments a FDA approved neurotoxin that revitalizes your complexion and give you back your confidence!

How does Xeomin work?

Xeomin is made out of a purified form of the bacteria botulinum toxin A. Xeomin is injected into specific muscles that are responsible for causing wrinkles and blocks the nerve signals to them. Then this temporarily paralyzes them, allowing the skin to smooth out and fine lines and wrinkles to fade away.

What is the treatment like?

Xeomin treatments are very short and simple. During your appointment, we will cleanse the treatment area and apply a topical anesthetic. After this, we will carefully inject the Xeomin, using a steady hand and an artistic eye to make sure your results are subtle and natural looking. This entire process generally takes less than 30 minutes and involves very little to no discomfort. Moreover, immediately after your treatment, you can return to the rest of your day’s activities!

What are Xeomin results like?

Xeomin is a very versatile treatment, that corrects a variety of concerns, including:

  • Frown lines
  • Forehead creases
  • Crow’s feet
  • Drooping brows
  • “Bunny lines” on the nose
  • Chin dimples

Results from Xeomin are very fast acting. Within 5 days, you should notice an improvement in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Furthermore, these results generally last between 3 to 5 months before requiring a touch up to maintain your results.

Are there any risk or side effects?

Xeomin has little to no side effects or risk, however, localized side effects may appear at the site of injection post-treatment. These side effects are considered normal and mild in nature and should subside naturally within a few hours. Such side effects may include:

  • Swelling
  • Headaches
  • Redness
  • Tenderness
  • Bruising
Can this be combined with other treatments?

Xeomin is safe to combine with many other treatments provided in our office. Often, patients may choose to combine this treatment along with others in order to achieve optimum results and reach their aesthetic goals. During your consultation you may ask us about our other available treatments, such as Radiesse, at which time a customized plan will be developed.

What benefits can I expect from Xeomin

Our patients can take advantage of the various benefits Xeomin offers, including:

  • No downtime: Xeomin requires no downtime allowing patients to return to work immediately after treatment, or even receive treatment on their lunch hour
  • Diminish the appearance of facial creases and wrinkles
  • Quick: Treatment generally takes less than 30 minutes
  • Safe: FDA approved
  • Long lasting: The results of Xeomin may last up to up four months, depending on the individual and the area treated
  • Quick results: The effects of Xeomin will become noticeable within one week of treatment
Who is a good candidate?

Both male and female adults who are frustrated with unsightly facial fine lines and creases around the eyebrows, corners of the eyes or the forehead are great candidates for Xeomin. In addition, ideal candidates should be in good health and have realistic expectations. Individuals who are allergic to Botox, or those who present with an active infection or muscle weakness at the targeted site may not be good candidates. It is recommended for those who are pregnant or breastfeeding to postpone treatment.
