BOTOX® Cosmetic/Xeomin® Wrinkle and Frown Treatment
Dynamic lines or wrinkles created by facial movements become more pronounced as we age. The skin around the eyes, on the forehead, and near the mouth loses its elasticity and volume. Botox and Xeomin temporarily relax the muscle movement and therefore can soften or eliminate lines and wrinkles.
“The greatest fear of most patients is to have a “frozen” or unexpressive face after an injection. It is important to reduce the major wrinkling of the face while preserving facial expression,” says Dr. Ricciardelli.
Dr. Ricciardelli has over 25 years of experience injecting Botox and fillers and keenly aware of what is crucial in achieving a natural and well rested look. Dr. Ricciardelli has been named an Expert Injector by New Beauty Magazine.

What can I expect during and after the treatment?
It is recommended that you do not lie down for four hours after treatment. Generally it takes about three days before you see changes and 2 weeks before the full effects can be seen. Deeper wrinkles may take longer to fade and need further treatment for more improvement. Expect the treatment to last 3 to 4 months in most cases. Some patients will elect to wait 6 months before a subsequent injection if they are still getting some resolution and the wrinkles have not returned to their original depth. If you elect not to repeat the injection, your wrinkles will return to their original state over time. Re-treating the area is a good way to prevent wrinkles from progressing into a deeper state. Our door is always open for any questions.
