Botox injections in Cambridge and Concord, MA

Neurotoxins

BOTOX®

Carefully injected in very tiny amounts, BOTOX (botulinum toxin) weakens the affected muscles to soften frown lines, crow's feet, and other wrinkles. BOTOX has also been successful in controlling excessive perspiration of the underarms, hands, and feet in both men and women.

Is It Safe?

BOTOX has been approved by the FDA and is considered safe. It is one of the most widely used cosmetic procedures in the world because of its safety and effectiveness.

What to Expect

During the procedure, you may be numbed, but BOTOX is typically performed without anesthetic in about 10 minutes. BOTOX will be injected into several sites around the affected area that you wish to improve. You can immediately resume normal activities as there is no downtime after this treatment. Many people come for injections on their lunch breaks.

The results of BOTOX typically last for three to four months. You can repeat the procedure every three to four months or less often if results are longer-lasting.

Xeomin®

Another injection option is Xeomin (incobotulinumtoxinA), also made from the same botulinum toxin as BOTOX. As such, it affects the same muscles that are involved in frown lines, crow's feet, and other wrinkles.

Is It Safe?

Xeomin is considered safe and has no additives. It has been approved by the FDA for cosmetic use.

What to Expect

The office procedure is quick and virtually painless. After you receive the injections, you may have tiny bumps at the injection sites. You should remain in an upright position for four hours afterward and avoid exercise for 24 hours afterward.

The effects of Xeomin are similar to BOTOX, occurring within one week with results that last from three to six months. You can get Xeomin injections every three months.
