Botox®, XEOMIN & Dysport are Botulinum toxins type A (Commonly known as “Botox”) treatments that work to reverse the visible signs of aging by relaxing the muscles beneath the skin’s surface. Botox, Xeomin & Dysport are the only treatment that can efficiently prevent the formation of wrinkles. Typically, wrinkles form over time as a result of the repeated muscle contractions, or facial expressions, we’ve made over the years. After Botox®, treatment at Vida Aesthetic you can say goodbye to wrinkles and frown lines.

Frequently Asked Questions
How does Botox work?
Botox®, Xeomin & Dysport efficiently blocks the muscle contractions in the face. Without Botox, Xeomin & Dysport there to prevent this contraction, the muscles would continue to form wrinkles. Botox®, Xeomin & Dysport works to relax the muscles so wrinkles aren’t able to form as quickly. It counteracts the contraction and allows your skin to look and feel radiant and fresh.
Post procedure instructions?
We advise every client following a Botox treatment to abstain from activity for 4 hours. Be careful not to lay down or apply pressure to your face during this time.
What is the treatment like?
This is essentially minimal invasive and quick. Expect minimal discomfort during the injection. No anesthesia is required; however, at Vida Aesthetic numbing cream or cold pack is available for sensitive clients prior to treatment. There is no down time following the procedure.
Will I be able to make facial expressions?
Yes, this is the ultimate goal to keep your natural look at its best. Although you are looking for visible results, Botulinum toxins type A treatment will not radically alter your natural appearance or make you look as if you’ve had work done. The natural muscle activity that causes, for example, frown lines between the brows are temporarily reduced by Botox. Following the treatment, you can still frown and look surprised, just without bothersome wrinkles and lines between your brows.
How many units of Botox® will I need?
At Vida Aesthetic we do not offer a cookie cutter approach. Each treatment is carefully tailored according to each person and desired outcome and degree of lines/wrinkles to be treated. Thus, the number of units vary. On average, for example the forehead may require 12-40 units. The best way to determine needed units is to set up a face to face consultation.
Do you dilute your Botox®?
Our practice strives for excellence in each treatment we provide, each manufacture has its recommended mixture ratio for optimal results and adding longevity to the treatment. We pledge to NEVER compromise safety and efficacy in the treatments we offer in our clinic.
