Botox Explained

Welcome to Santa Monica Eye Medical Group, your trusted provider of Botox services in Santa Monica, CA. Botox is a popular cosmetic treatment that effectively reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It is a non-surgical procedure that involves injecting a purified form of botulinum toxin type A into specific muscles.


At Santa Monica Eye Medical Group, we offer Xeomin as another effective option for facial rejuvenation. Xeomin is a purified form of botulinum toxin type A, similar to Botox. It is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that targets specific muscles responsible for causing wrinkles and fine lines.


You may wonder about the differences between Xeomin and Botox. While both options are effective in smoothing out frown lines, Xeomin and Botox Cosmetic have slight distinctions. In a study comparing the two treatments over a 4-month period, Xeomin was found to be equally effective in treating moderate-to-severe frown lines.

One notable difference is that Xeomin does not contain any additives, while Botox is composed of a complex mixture of proteins. This purer formulation may be appealing to individuals seeking a more streamlined approach to their cosmetic treatments.

One of the advantages of Botox and Xeomin treatments is that they require minimal to no downtime. You can typically resume your daily activities immediately after the procedure. However, it’s advised to avoid strenuous exercise, excessive sun exposure, and touching or massaging the treated area for the first 24 to 48 hours to allow the product to settle.

While Botox and Xeomin are generally safe, there can be some temporary side effects. These may include mild bruising, redness, swelling, or slight discomfort at the injection sites. These side effects are usually minor and subside within a few days. Rarely, more serious complications may occur, but they are extremely uncommon when the treatment is performed by a skilled professional.

The onset of results can vary, but most people begin to see improvements within a few days to a week after their Botox or Xeomin treatment.
