Many patients find that, as they age, they notice expression lines becoming deeper. These lines can make you look and feel older than you really are. Similar to other neuromodulators, Xeomin works to soften the appearance of expression lines around the forehead and eyes. If you are living with unwanted smile lines around the eyes or wrinkles along the forehead, Xeomin may be able to improve your appearance.
What is Xeomin?
Made up of incobotulinumtoxinA, Xeomin blocks nerve activity in facial muscles which causes a reduction in muscles activity. When muscles in the forehead can no longer contact, lines cannot be created. This injectable treatment is approved for the use in moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows, lines across the forehead, and crow’s feet.
The main difference between Xeomin and Botox is that Xeomin is formulated a bit differently, without the additives that Botox has.
The Xeomin Treatment
During your treatment session, the treatment area will be cleansed a topical anesthetic may be applied to ensure a comfortable experience. Then, Xeomin will be injected into the targeted areas (usually 5-20 injections) using a thin needle. Treatment is quick, usually only lasting about 15 minutes to complete.
Following a Xeomin treatment, patients may experience bruising or swelling at the injection sites, though this should resolve quickly. Results can be seen within one week, with results lasting between 3-6 months. Patients can help Xeomin to absorb by making repeated facial expressions after injections. There is no downtime associated with these injections, so patients can feel free to resume their daily routines.
