"Tox weakens the muscle under the skin to treat and prevent wrinkles. It can also be used to treat some muscle pain disorders. Our practice has chosen to use Xeomin, which is a brand of FDA approved neurotoxin. This brand goes through an extra purification process that prevents the development of medication resistance. In short, it keeps working over time!
PRICE: $11 per unit
1. Does it hurt?
The needle used is very tiny. You will feel a small pinch/stick. Everyone is different, but most people do not consider it painful. Numbing cream is available if you need it.
2. Will I see the results immediately?
Xeomin takes 3-10 days, depending on the person to take effect.
3. How long will it last?
About 3 months. If you have been doing treatments for a number of years you may find you need them less often.
4. What happens if I do treatments for awhile, then decide to stop doing it?
The medication wears off. You will regain movement and could develop wrinkles. There is no period of "catch-up" or negative effects from not continuing treatment.
AND HERE IS THE BIG ONE......
5. How many units will I need?
This is by far the most common question I get asked. The answer is less straight forward than I'd like. Everyone is slightly different, and your treatment is designed for you based on the shape, size and strength of your muscles. Remember, consultations are always free at Modern Lady Aesthetics. In that appointment, you will know exactly how many units you will need. BUT, check out the illustration below... These are the most common areas treated and the most common number of units used for that area.
