BOTOX ® and Xeomin

XEOMIN is the most recently approved botulinum neurotoxin available in the United States.

XEOMIN is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows(glabellar lines) in adults.

XEOMIN is in the same drug category and has the same mode of action as BOTOX and DYSPORT.

 

Botox Cosmetic is a chemical which is used to temporarily reduce the appearance of wrinkles in Men and Women from the ages of 18 to 65.  It is injected into the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes. 

Botox is FDA approved since 2002.  Dr. Haupt has been prescribing Botox Cosmetic for over a decade and feels completely comfortable doing so. 

Botox has benefits which last anywhere between 3 to 10 months, depending on the person. After the effects start to diminish, further injections are necessary to keep the wrinkle free appearance.  

The procedure is simply a few injections to the area the patient feels would be best suitable for less wrinkles.  It can be completed very quickly, and patients can return to their normal activities immediately following the procedure. 

Utah Cosmetic Surgery has the honors of having Carlotta Veasy, MSN, FNP-BC, AMEP-C who is contracted to provide Medical Aesthetic Injector services within our facility.  Carlotta has received her Medical Aesthetics training through Renowned Medical Aesthetic Physicians affiliated with John Hopkins Medical Center from across the USA.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does Botox cost?

The charge is between $11to $14 per unit and generally will inject anywhere from about 20-50 units of Botox in one session.

How long does Botox last?

Botox works by irreversibly binding to receptors that send nerve signals for muscles to contract.  Since your body makes new receptors and neurotransmitters constantly, each patient will have different lengths of effective paralysis.  Typically 2-6 months is the range, the average is 3-4 months.

What side effects are associated with Botox?

Botox has an excellent safety record in terms of any medical complications.   Utah Cosmetic Surgery stresses to our patients that the experience and training of the injector leads to optimal results in terms of patient satisfaction.
