Erase Visible Wrinkles with Botox Cosmetic® or Xeomin® at Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery
One of the most common, and also most frustrating, symptoms of aging is the development of lines and wrinkles, especially around the eyebrows, eyes, and mouth. Unfortunately, these areas of the face are both the most visible but also the most prone to the development of dynamic wrinkles due to the constant movement of the facial muscles required for day-to-day expressiveness. However, the appearance of these unfortunate wrinkles can be reduced—and their formation even slowed—with the use of powerful neuromodulators that relax the muscle contractions at the root of wrinkle formation.
By inhibiting nerve impulses within targeted muscle groups, a simple injectable treatment can reduce lines and wrinkles, create smooth, revitalized skin, lift the brows, and actually slow down the aging process!* *At Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, we are pleased to offer powerful injectable treatments perfect for addressing the unwelcome appearance of:
- Crow’s feet
- Eyebrow asymmetry
- Sagging and creasing of the forehead and brow area
- Drooping at the corners of the mouth
- Frown lines
- Marionette lines
BOTOX® or Xeomin®
At Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, we offer two of the most trusted facial rejuvenation options available today. During your individual consultation, we will work with you to develop a thorough understanding of your aesthetic goals and help you select the injectable treatment best suited to achieve your unique goals. It is important to remember that results may vary per patient.
Botox® is still the most well-known and most trusted neuromodulator on the market today. Composed of the powerful botulinum toxin A, Botox® continues to offer amazing results, safely minimizing wrinkles and folds by up to 80%! Moreover, in addition to minimizing the appearance of lines and wrinkles, Botox® has also been shown the slow the formation of dynamic wrinkle formation for long-term, naturally beautiful results. It is also been proven effective in combating excessive sweating (also known as hyperhidrosis).*

Xeomin (also composed of botulinum toxin A) is the newest neuromodulator available today, and like Botox®, works by blocking nerve activity in the muscle and causing a temporary reduction in muscle activity. However, unlike other brands, Xeomin doesn’t contain additional additives so it is less likely to cause adverse allergic reactions and more certain to enhance the effectiveness of repeated treatments.
Botox® and Xeomin® treatments are a rejuvenation procedure that can be performed at either Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery location. Most patients require less than 20 minutes for their treatment and because neither Botox® nor Xeomin® injections require anesthesia, patients can return to their normal activities immediately, without any need for downtime or post-treatment recovery time. Results may be visible within a week after your treatment, and should last for about 3-7 months, depending on your unique medical history and metabolism. For optimal rejuvenation results, our aestheticians may suggest that your Botox® or Xeomin® treatment be combined with a dermal filler (a powerful Vampire Facelift) or ancillary aesthetic enhancement procedure. *
