(Botox, Xeomin, Dysport)
Botox is a drug prepared from the bacterial toxin botulin, used medically to treat certain muscular conditions and cosmetically to remove wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing facial muscles. Neurotoxins such as Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport are used to reduce and sometimes eliminate fine lines and wrinkles. If you think of your skin as a piece of paper, if we can reduce or eliminate the ability to crumple the paper, then we reduce the wrinkles it causes. At XO|MS we believe in going slow and progressive. The philosophy is we can always add, but we can’t take away.
We carry all major brands: Botox, Dysport, & Xeomin.

Over time, our face loses bone, collagen, and fat. This natural process, plus genetics and environmental factors like sun exposure, can cause moderate to severe volume loss, lines, and folds. This commonly occurs in the parentheses (nasio-labial), corner of the mouth, and marionette area. Fillers come from a variety of brands and are made of different materials.
Fillers do exactly what their name implies. Fillers improve areas of volume loss such as the cheeks and temples or they can be used to enhance areas such as the lips. What a client observes as an area of concern, may not be what needs to be treated. For instance, a client may have issues with deep smile lines however it’s the laxity in the cheeks that is causing the weight. It’s important to have a collaborative consult to ensure every client reaches their goal. Just like neurotoxins, it is the philosophy to go slow and progressive.
PDO (polydioxanone) threads are powerful synthetic fibers that can have a lifting effect on the face, neck, and body. PDO threads stimulate the natural production of collagen which causes the skin’s texture to look younger, brighter and increases elasticity. The threads typically last 6 months in the skin as it slowly dissolves. The results will then last up to or longer than 12 months as every client will vary.
PRP Microneedling (aka “vampire facial”) is a cosmetic procedure that’s primarily used to minimize the signs of aging. Microneedling is a treatment that involves the use of tiny needles that produce controlled injuries to the skin. These injuries stimulate collagen production while also mechanically breaking up scares, lines, and pigment. To speed the healing process and promote further collagen production, PRP (platelet rich plasma) is applied to the treated area.
