Wrinkles and facial folds are an unfortunate consequence of the aging process. But you don’t have to settle for looking older than you feel – XEOMIN® can temporarily remove these signs of aging to reveal a more vibrant, youthful you.
What is XEOMIN®?
XEOMIN® is an injectable neuromodulator that is used to treat facial wrinkles, particularly forehead creases and crow’s feet. Neuromodulator injections are lunchtime procedures, typically taking between five and fifteen minutes to perform.
It is made of Botulinum Toxin-A, a compound that is naturally occurring within the human body. It is chemically and functionally similar to both BOTOX® and Dysport®. Unlike BOTOX® and Dysport®, XEOMIN® is chemically pure: it only contains Botulinum Toxin-A with no additional additives. Since it is chemically simple, adverse side effects and reactions are less likely.
How Does it Work?
As you go through your day-to-day life, you make a countless number of facial expressions. While some wrinkles are formed by decreased collagen production, others appear because of these repeated facial expressions.
Facial expressions are formed through muscle contraction. XEOMIN® works to smooth wrinkles by decreasing this muscle contraction. It is part of a class of injectables called neuromodulators. Neuromodulators smooth facial wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that create them. This stops wrinkles at their source.
The results of these injections can usually be seen within five days of treatment. Since XEOMIN® leaves your system over time, the effects it has on your wrinkles are only temporary, lasting between three and six months.
Am I a Good Candidate?
If you have a desire to smooth facial wrinkles that are caused by muscle movement, you’re probably a good candidate for XEOMIN® .
However, if you have a history of allergic reactions to Dysport® or BOTOX®, XEOMIN® is probably not right for you. Since it is so chemically similar to both of these products, you’ll most likely react the same way when using Xeomin.
During your consultation appointment, our trained medical team will discuss your cosmetic goals, medical history, and current state of health to decide if Xeomin is right for you. If we don’t think XEOMIN® is the right treatment for you, we can discuss some of the other cosmetic services we offer.
