BOTOX® Cosmetic & More
Explore Wrinkle Reduction Options for Philadelphia, Bryn Mawr, and Newtown Square
You never want to look tired, upset, or angry when you’re not. However, unwanted lines and wrinkles can do just that! Soften your facial expressions and restore your youthful, natural appearance with wrinkle-reducing neuromodulators, such as BOTOX®, Dysport®, or Xeomin® at our Philadelphia area practice.
What Are Neuromodulators, and What Can They Treat?
Neuromodulators are safe proteins that act on neurons to alter nerve impulses. Injectable neuromodulators, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, and Xeomin® block the release of muscle-related neurotransmitters to the injected areas, causing relaxation of the treated muscles. When muscle activity is decreased, the associated existing facial lines and wrinkles diminish, and the development of new lines is prevented.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medication that is injected into the muscles of the face to temporarily improve the look of moderate-to-severe frown lines that appear between the eyebrows and around the eyes. Originally approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2002 for the temporary improvement of frown lines, it was again approved by the FDA in 2013 for the treatment of the lines around the eyes, commonly known as "crow's feet."
At our Spa, our skilled injectors can use BOTOX®, Dysport®, and Xeomin® to soften wrinkles at the areas of the eyebrows, forehead, eyes, lips, and neck. These treatments can also be used to lift the eyebrow, for a brighter-eyed, refreshed appearance. They can also be used to reduce excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) in the underarms, hands, and feet.
While BOTOX® and other neuromodulators can be very effective in treating wrinkles and excessive sweating, they are not a one-time cure. Since every patient has their own individual physiology, the degree of improvement varies accordingly from person to person. This also affects how often follow-up treatments may be required to maintain the results. Typically, facial wrinkles start to reappear between three to six months after BOTOX® treatment, and excessive sweating in six to eight months.
Rejuvenate Your Appearance with BOTOX®
At Cirillo Cosmetic, BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the most popular aesthetic therapies we offer. Patients are delighted to realize they do not have to keep unwanted lines and wrinkles. BOTOX® treatments work quickly. Most patients notice an improvement in their appearance within days, and the improvement may continue for up to 30 days. Results last between three to six months, depending upon individual differences and the areas treated.
Treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic is uncomplicated, and recovery is quick. The medication is administered in office through tiny injections into the affected areas. Discomfort is minimal and a treatment session takes just minutes to complete – giving BOTOX® the reputation of being a "lunchtime procedure". Best of all, there's no downtime associated with the treatment, so you can resume your normal routine without delay.
BOTOX® Cosmetic will not radically change the way you look, but it will change the way you feel about your appearance. When you notice the lines between your brows, around your eyes, and on other parts of your face begin to disappear, you will look and feel better about yourself.

A Note on BOTOX® vs. Dysport® vs. Xeomin®
BOTOX®, Dysport®, and Xeomin® have more similarities than differences between them. While they utilize the same active ingredient (Clostridium Botulinum Toxin Type A) and have very similar effects, they can function slightly differently. The medical professionals at our Spa will make an educated assessment and recommend which product may be most suitable for you. No matter which you choose, know that the skill and experience of the injector tend to be far more pivotal to the results than the product used for treatment
