Xeomin® is a neuromodulator that works in the same way as Botox®, but it’s designed for people with moderate to severe frown lines between their brows. The formulation has been authorized by the FDA, allowing patients to battle their first signs of aging without resorting to surgery.
- Xeomin® is a Botulinum toxin A-based product.
- Xeomin® is a wrinkle treatment that targets wrinkles caused by facial expressions.
- Xeomin® offers no downtime or recovery time.
- The effects of Xeomin® are only temporary, although they may linger for months.
Why Do Patients Choose Xeomin®?
When patients start to have moderate to severe frown lines, or other dynamic wrinkles in the upper face, Xeomin is the treatment of choice. When people have wrinkles that are apparent even when their faces are relaxed, dermal fillers may be more effective. Patients who are allergic to botulinum toxin cannot receive therapy and any skin allergies or medical issues should be addressed prior to treatment.
How Does It Work?
The body’s collagen production decreases as we get older, which is why skin begins to lose its elasticity and suppleness. This loss of collagen, together with years of face expressions such as smiling and frowning, can result in weakened skin with fine lines and wrinkles. Botulinum toxin A is used in Xeomin® to target the muscles around the eyes. Patients may smile more freely when their muscles are blocked from contracting by this treatment since it inhibits the signal that tells them to shut down.
Xeomin® Treatment With Your Own Personalization
The placement of Xeomin® and the quantity required will differ depending on the patient’s symptoms and their severity. Prior to treatment, the skin will be cleansed and prepared for the injection process. Patients typically feel a pinching sensation after each injection, but those who are apprehensive about the discomfort may apply ice or a numbing cream beforehand.
The wrinkles will be treated with a focused ultrasound, and the expert placement points will be meticulously drawn. Only the wrinkle-causing muscles will be targeted, while natural facial expressions will remain intact. This procedure might take between 10 and 20 minutes to complete.
There is no required downtime or recovery time after Xoemin therapy, however patients may use these measures to their advantage to obtain the greatest possible comfort and guarantee successful outcomes:
- Following treatment, rest the entire day from exercise.
- Avoid direct sunlight and a hot bath.
- To reduce swelling or irritation, use an ice pack.
- Keep the head higher than the heart for at least 24 hours.
- Don’t scratch the injection sites.
Your Xeomin® Results
Xeomin® works by stimulating the production of new collagen. The effects of treatment with Xeomin® may be seen in only 3-4 days, with the greatest benefits obtained after 30 days. Patients can anticipate to see results after just one treatment; nevertheless, certain patients may require 2-3 sessions to smooth their wrinkles. Patients can expect a younger appearance and no scars following optimal treatments. The effects of Xeemin® typically last around three months before a touch-up session is required.
Additional Treatment Options
There are several types of injected treatments for facial rejuvenation.Patients might want to try combining fillers with their treatment if they have static wrinkles or wrinkles that remain even when the face is relaxed. Fillers exist in a variety of formulations to address various aspects of aging, and some may be used to plump the cheeks or lips for a delicate boost.
Xeomin® can help to correct the early symptoms of aging, but it cannot stop future deterioration. Those who begin to exhibit more serious signs of aging on their face may want to consider a surgical procedure such as a facelift, brow lift, or eyelid rejuvenation.
