Xeomin™ is an FDA-approved, highly-purified neurotoxin prescription injection that is primarily used to treat moderate to severe frown lines. An alternative to Botox and Dysport, Xeomin™ is injected into your face muscles to soften frown lines and improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between your eyebrows, also known as glabellar lines.
How long Xeomin™ last?
The cosmetic effects of Xeomin™ last for a short period of time and block the release of the chemicals that cause your muscles to contract, which over time, result in frown lines. Xeomin™ lasts anywhere from three to four months and can take anywhere from 24 hours to ten days to take effect. The lifespan and effectiveness of Xeomin™ primarily depends on your physiological makeup, which is why we recommend consulting your doctor at Allegany Plastic Surgery before beginning treatment. Common side effects of Xeomin™ include headaches, blurred vision, and injection site pain.

Belotero® is an FDA-approved cosmetic dermal filler that reduces wrinkles and fine lines on the face to ultimately add volume and fullness to the skin. Similar to other dermal fillers, Belotero® is made from hyaluronic acid to provide almost immediate natural-looking volume and softness to facial tissue.
Belotero® is not a permanent treatment and typically lasts about six to nine months, which is a bit longer than other cosmetic dermal fillers. Belotero® treatment can be given here at Allegany Plastic Surgery, and only takes a short amount of time to complete. Most patients are able to return to their normal activities immediately after treatment.
What are the side effects of Belotero®?
Side effects of Belotero® include bruising and redness at the injection site, tenderness, and swelling. The lifespan and effectiveness of Belotero® primarily depends on your physiological makeup, which is why we recommend consulting your doctor before beginning treatment.
To learn more and find out if Belotero® is right for you, call us today at (301) 724-5885 to request a consultation.
RADIESSE® is a dermal filler made of smooth calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres. This formulation stimulates the body’s natural collagen production, resulting in a smoother, more youthful overall appearance. It is primarily used for adding volume to the cheeks and chin but is also FDA-approved for the treatment of the back of the hands. Because it is not hyaluronic acid-based, it is not reversible with Hylenex®. RADIESSE® typically lasts up to 15 months when used for contouring the face.
