Xeomin® in Aventura, Florida
When it comes to reducing wrinkles and lines, it’s hard to beat injectable treatments like Xeomin®. With no hassle or downtime, this neuromodulator is an excellent option for smoothing the skin and boosting your confidence.
What is Xeomin?
Xeomin is an injectable treatment similar to Botox®. It works by injecting botulinumtoxin type A into the facial muscles to relax them and prevent movements that can cause lines and folds to develop over time with regular expressions. This process is called neuromodulation and it’s a great alternative to surgical options like the facelift. When looking at your options for injectable treatments, it’s important to always receive injections from a board certified plastic surgeon.
The Xeomin Treatment
Every patient has a different level of tolerance, so we can supply a topical numbing cream before the injection process. Once you’re ready, the product is placed in specific locations in the facial muscles using a very fine needle. This might require more than one injection per treatment area, but the whole process usually takes around fifteen minutes. Afterward, you can return home.
After Xeomin treatment, it’s common to have some redness and swelling, but this usually subsides quickly. You can return to your regular schedule immediately, although you should avoid any extensive activity since sweating can cause irritation. You should also avoid massaging the area since it can cause the product to spread to unwanted locations. It can take about four days to begin seeing results, which is slightly longer than Botox. However, Xeomin can last for longer at between three and six months, after which you can return for re-treatment. The result is a smoother, more youthful look in areas like around the eyes and between the brows.
Xeomin is an excellent option for improving signs of aging and creating a refreshed and rejuvenated look. To learn more, we invite you to contact our Aventura office to meet with Dr. Sarraga and our team.
