Cosmetic injectables have become one of the most sought after aesthetic procedures available today.  Specifically neurotoxins such as Botox and Xeomin.  With their efficacy in the treatment and prevention of expression lines, it’s no wonder their popularity.  We proudly offer both products at our Kansas City area Medical Spa.  Contact us today to schedule.

What is a Neurotoxin

Unlike injections such as fillers that ‘fill the skin’, neurotoxin is an injectable solution that temporarily blocks nerve receptors in the muscle.  The effect of this is weakened muscles that are used to make expressions.  By not being able to fully lift your brows, frown or squint your eyes to cause lines, it in return prevents the lines from forming and staying.  It is also helpful in the reduction of current lines, however, multiple and consistent treatments may be required to see the best results.  If you’re interested in learning more about Botox or Xeomin, contact our office today.  Our talented nurse injector, Anne, will guide you through the best options and treatment plan for your skin type, muscle strength and specific desires.

Xeomin Vs. Botox

Xeomin and Botox both contain botulinum toxin type A.  Despite the face that these products have the same active ingredient, there are some slight differences.  The main difference is Xeomin contains a ‘naked’ form of botulinum toxin.  While Botox contains an accessory protein,  Xeomin effectively delivers the toxin without and additional proteins.  This structure may be helpful in the prevention of antibody resistance.  Aside from the storage of the product, due to the protein differences, Botox and Xeomin are very similar.

Both Botox and Xeomin have FDA approval for the treatment of facial lines.  There is not one product we prefer over the other, however, sometimes it is helpful to switch between the two for long standing results.  Each company offers rewards programs to their consumers to help with cost to maintain treatments. Our office will help you get set up, if you aren’t a member already.

OUR PATIENT REVIEWS

Dr. Chhatre is an amazing plastic surgeon in KC. He is very straightforward and extremely skilled. I considered my procedure for over a decade, and consulted with multiple area surgeons. I am so happy I chose to go with Dr. Chhatre. I had a very smooth surgery and recovery, and two years post-surgery, I’ve still had no complications and my results look amazing. If you are looking into abdominoplasty with muscle repair in the KC area, go to Summit Plastic Surgery and Medspa.

I can not say enough good things about Dr Chhatre, his nurses and staff. Over a span of about 20 years, Dr. Chhatre has done 3 surgeries for me and several sutures on my face from a serious car accident. He has ALWAYS been so pleasant and kind, understanding and listens to what you want and need. He has nurses and staff that have been with him for years which really says a lot. They are all so amazing. Cara in particular has been absolutely amazing this last go round. Dr. is so lucky to have them all and I’m very happy and thankful for them as well. Highly recommend this practice to everyone in need of any cosmetic or medical issues. ❤️

I am very pleased with Dr. Chhatre and his staff. His knowledge and expertise are priceless; he is honest and not just about consuming money - straight forward consults. I am beyond pleased with the progress of my procedure and the follow-up care received. The nursing staff are all very knowledgeable, which helps put you at ease. I would recommend Dr. Chhatre to anyone considering making a surgical choice - the level of knowledge he has is greatly appreciated. This was not a decision that I took lightly - I searched and considered for over 10 years, finally making my decision to trust my care to Dr. Chhatre, extremely grateful.
