What is Xeomin®?
Xeomin® is a FDA-approved dermal filler that works to relax facial muscles that cause wrinkles, also known as dynamic wrinkles. The formula works similarly to Botox® by blocking nerve signals to the facial muscles, allowing the wrinkles in the skin to flatten out and disappear. Xeomin® injectable fillers have proven effective in reducing the appearance of forehead furrows and moderate to severe lines between the brows. This treatment can also help defer the development of additional wrinkles for several months after treatment.
How Do Xeomin® Injections Work?
The procedure is fairly simple and can often be completed in under 30 minutes, depending on each patient’s unique needs. Xeomin® injections use botulinum toxin, commonly known as the same active ingredient in Botox®, to help provide patients with smoother, more youthful skin. The formula works by temporarily immobilizing the muscles beneath the skin that cause the wrinkles due to repeated movements and muscle contractions. While the effects are not permanent, they can help to reduce the development of wrinkles in the future and patients can continue to receive treatments until they see an improvement in the overall appearance of their skin.
How Can Xeomin® Benefit Me?
If you are seeing the effects of aging develop in your face, specifically in the brow and forehead area, Xeomin® treatments may be helpful for you. Xeomin® injections have been clinically proven to improve the appearance of frown lines in the brow area of adults 35 to 60 years old. Additionally, patients can begin to see the results of their treatment in as little as a few hours after leaving our office. The process is minimally invasive and patients feel little to no discomfort during the procedure.
Who Can Receive Xeomin® Injections?
If you are in good overall health, have realistic expectations, and are over the age of 21, you may be eligible for Xeomin® injections. Wrinkles can affect just about anyone and many patients cannot undergo extensive cosmetic procedures to help diminish the inevitable signs of aging. Dermal fillers and injectables are a great alternative to surgical procedures such as a facelift or brow lift. A consultation with Dr. Mang can help you understand if Xeomin® injections are right for you.
What Can I Expect From Xeomin® Treatments?
Just like Botox®, patients can receive treatment at our in-house medical spa facility in as little as an hour and be free to return to work with no recovery time necessary.
Mild redness, swelling, and bruising at the injection site are normal and can be alleviated with ice and arnica. Some minor discomfort may be felt following the procedure but will subside within a few hours.
Xeomin® results typically last up to six months with proper skin care but will vary with each patient. Maintaining healthy lifestyle habits can help improve the appearance of your skin over time.
Preparing For Xeomin®
During your initial consultation with Dr. Mang, you will discuss your medical history, any past dermal injections, and all medications or supplements you may be taking. Many of these medicines can increase bruising in the skin and should be avoided for at least two weeks before and after your procedure.
