Aftercare: Botox & Xeomin

Results of your treatment may take up to 14 days to take full effect although many people will recognize the benefits in 3-5 days after treatment. Xeomin and Botox injections are temporary procedures. In most people the benefits last about 3-4 months. Sometimes a few wrinkles may start to return in 2-3 months. The effectiveness of the injections will last longer with successive treatments. For most patients, the benefits of injectables and dermal fillers can be enhanced by using a medical-grade skincare system, such as Obagi. Products containing Vitamin-C can strengthen the skin and improve laxity and texture. Additionally, use of Retinol Cream helps rebuild cells in the skin’s epidermis (or top layer). Over time, it can strengthen skin, improving firmness and resiliency.
