BOTOX® Cosmetic

Print This PageEmail this Page

BOTOX Cosmetic® and XEOMIN® are popular options with both women and men for restoring a refreshed, more youthful appearance without surgery. The beauty of these anti-aging treatments is that they require almost no recovery time and deliver subtle but significant results. Dr. Timothy R. Miller uses XEOMIN and BOTOX at his Aliso Viejo office in Orange County, CA to soften lines and wrinkles, elevate the eyebrows or corners of the mouth, and reduce the prominence of neck bands.

If you are interested in speaking with Dr. Miller to learn more about whether BOTOX or XEOMIN treatments are right for you, give us a call at (949) 215-5402 or request your consultation online. Dr. Miller sees patients for XEOMIN and BOTOX treatments from Laguna Beach, San Clemente, Mission Viejo, and the greater Orange County area.

Doctor Miller's Approach to BOTOX Cosmetic & XEOMIN

Today, surgery isn't the only option when it comes to looking younger. Within the past several years, non-surgical treatments have seen a tremendous growth in popularity, particularly due to their convenience and affordable price point. BOTOX and XEOMIN are high-performance wrinkle reducers that allow for effective correction of dynamic wrinkles (those that are caused by repeated facial movements). Many patients are unaware that these treatments have been proven to actually delay the progression of lines and wrinkles, if used consistently. Each treatment takes only minutes, requires no time away from work, and provides results that last for 3 months or more.

These products are excellent anti-aging treatments on their own, but they are even more powerful when combined with other treatments, such as fillers, laser resurfacing, or aesthetic surgery. I often use BOTOX or XEOMIN in conjunction with dermal fillers or laser skin resurfacing for more complete facial rejuvenation. This allows me to address the multiple causes and signs of aging, thereby delivering more comprehensive results that leave the patient looking natural and refreshed.

Common Questions or Concerns

Is BOTOX Safe? Yes. BOTOX and XEOMIN have undergone many years of rigorous clinical studies, and have been used for various indications for decades. They are FDA-approved and deemed safe when used correctly by a trained medical professional in a medical office.

Will I look unnatural? No. An unnatural appearance is not directly caused by BOTOX or XEOMIN, but is more likely the result of an inexperienced injector. Dr. Miller is a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon with in-depth experience performing these treatments. His understanding of facial anatomy and precise injection technique ensure that you look like a more refreshed version of yourself.

What is the difference between BOTOX and XEOMIN? BOTOX and XEOMIN are made from the organic molecule botulinum toxin A, a protein that relaxes muscles and inhibits their movements that cause dynamic wrinkles. When used correctly, these products are used to soften facial expression lines, but there are some slight differences between them. Some variations between BOTOX and XEOMIN include price, onset of results, longevity of results, and dosing. Dr. Miller will discuss the advantages and tradeoffs of each during your personal consultation.

What are the side effects? Typical side effects include redness, soreness, or very rarely light bruising at the injection site. These issues usually resolve within a few hours or days.

Is BOTOX used in a liquid facelift? Yes, BOTOX is often used in what some people refer to as a liquid facelift or what we call a non-surgical facelift. This is a customized procedure which combines injectable wrinkle treatments and fillers, and sometimes energy treatments such as Ultherapy®, to address specific age-related concerns without incisions, anesthesia, or significant downtime. Dr. Miller often incorporates neuromodulators (BOTOX or XEOMIN) to relax wrinkles around the eyes, to add subtle lift to the brows or the corners of the mouth, or to soften prominent neck bands.

Step-by-Step Procedure Facts

  • Dr. Miller will strategically place BOTOX or XEOMIN using controlled, precise injections.
  • You will be able to return to work or home immediately with no special aftercare.
  • It takes several days for the muscles to relax; full results usually appear within 3 to 10 days.
