Dynamic wrinkles are the lines that are made due to the movement of the muscles underneath the skin. They are the most notable on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes. These wrinkles are the natural consequence of years of movement. If you want to diminish or eliminate the lines in any or all of these areas, the muscular movement needs to be decreased or eliminated.
The best treatment for dynamic wrinkles is either FDA approved Botox® cosmetic or Xeomin®. Dr. Heskett prides herself on a very natural look for her clientele, many of whom would prefer to still be able to have expressive movement of those wrinkled areas, just not have the wrinkles.
Dr. Heskett makes that possible with her attention to the total aesthetic of the face, and each treatment is customized to reflect the needs of the individual. Everyone loves the natural results.
A few small, nearly painless injections right above the target muscles are all it takes to smooth out any of the three areas. The Botox® or Xeomin® works as it is taken up by the injected muscles and blocks the signals that cause them to move. When the muscle activity is decreased, the lines on the skin above them decrease as well. Over time the wrinkles diminish more and more, and may disappear completely.
There really is no reason to fear the use of either Botox® or Xeomin® to relax the muscles that cause excessive wrinkling of the face. It is so safe and so simple to achieve a completely natural result.-just less wrinkles. Period. Start with one area, and see if you like it.
What is the difference between Botox® and Xeomin®?There really isn’t any detectable difference between the two to the consumer. They are essentially interchangeable, although Xeomin is slightly less expensive.
How long does it last? Results last approximately 3-4 months. You will notice when it starts to fade as increasing movement will return to the treated areas. You should not be retreated between 2 weeks and 3 months to avoid becoming resistant to the effects of Botox® or Xeomin®.
When will I notice the effects? This is different for each individual. It ranges from within 24 hours to 2 weeks post injection. The results generally are gradual and there may be a period of adjustment of the non -paralyzed muscles in the treatment area. At 2 weeks, the result should be complete. This is why we do touch ups at 2 weeks post injection.
What will happen at my appointment? At the appointment you will be asked to look at your wrinkles in the mirror with me, and I will go over exactly what you are looking to improve. I will then use a white pencil while you are making the wrinkles to mark exactly where the Botox® should go to get the results we’ve discussed. Then, using the smallest needle possible, a series of injections are placed in the targeted areas.
Do I need to do anything after the treatment? Yes, it is advisable to move the muscles that we are treating to encourage them to take in the Botox® or Xeomin®. Additionally, you should not have your head in a down position for several hours following the treatment so that the Botox® or Xeomin® does not migrate from the targeted muscles.

One area of Botox® – $650 Xeomin® $550
Two areas of Botox® – $800 Xeomin® $750

love, Love, LOVE this place! – I absolutely love Wellpath and the girls there. I have been going there for a few years for little things here and there, and every time I return they remember to ask about details I told them months before! They are so personal and friendly! I recently did Botox with Dr. Jame, and I have to say, I love it. I had done Botox before and was nervous to try again since before I ended up kind of “frozen” looking, but Dr. Jame assured me she could achieve the natural, relaxed look I was looking for. Well, she DID! I am so, so happy. The place has a girly, cozy feel – not at all like a typical Dr’s office, and the Dr. herself has a great healthy, natural glow about her. Highly recommend.
