What is Xeomin?
Many people have not heard about Xeomin, so we are here to shed some light on this highly effective injectable. Xeomin is similar to Botox in that it is a neuromodulator. We inject the Xeomin under your skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
What is Xeomin Used For?
Xeomin is FDA-approved to smooth out frown and glabella lines. It can be used on your forehead, brows, around your eyes, and mouth. Xeomin treatments are non-surgical and minimally invasive. The injections cause mild discomfort, but it will be over in just a few minutes, and we apply a topical numbing cream. Xeomin sessions are quick and easy and don’t require any downtime for recovery.
How Does Xeomin Work?
As mentioned, Xeomin is a neuromodulator, but what does that mean? First, you should understand how wrinkles form. There are static and dynamic wrinkles. Static wrinkles occur as a result of gravity and other natural factors. On the other hand, dynamic wrinkles are due to the constant muscle contractions from facial expressions, such as smiling, laughing, frowning, and yawning. Now, you don’t have to stop doing these things to avoid wrinkles.
Xeomin can weaken your facial muscles, which leads to dynamic wrinkles, making your face smoother and firmer. As your muscles weaken, your wrinkles flatten out. This happens soon after Xeomin is injected under your skin. On average, patients notice results 3-4 days after their Xeomin injection.
How Long Does Xeomin Last?
Unfortunately, Xeomin is not a permanent treatment. After a while, your body removes the Xeomin via your metabolism. When this happens, wrinkles and fine lines may appear again. Xeomin lasts about 3-4 months. Scheduling another appointment is easy! You can contact us when your results wear off.
Xeomin VS Botox: What’s the Difference?
You are likely more familiar with Botox than Xeomin. This is because Botox is more popular than Xeomin since Xeomin was only FDA-approved in 2011. However, this does not make Xeomin inferior to Botox. While they may share many similarities, these two neuromodulators have their differences. Here are a few similarities and differences between Xeomin and Botox.
Botox and Xeomin are neuromodulators that relax your facial muscles to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Both these injectables contain botulinum toxin, which weakens muscles. However, Xeomin uses a purer form of botulinum toxin known as botulinum toxin A. This slight difference makes Xeomin less likely to lead to an allergic reaction. It also lowers the chance of developing antibodies against Xeomin. Antibodies will make you more resistant to Xeomin and make it ineffective. This aspect makes Xeomin more effective than Botox.
However, Botox beats Xeomin with the number of areas it can treat. Xeomin is only FDA-approved for mild glabella and frown lines on your forehead. Although Xeomin can only treat these areas, it is still a highly effective anti-aging solution. Many are satisfied with its results! Each treatment has its unique benefits. We recommend you visit us for a consultation to determine which treatment is best for you.
Suitable Candidates for Xeomin
If you are plagued by wrinkles and frown lines, you should consider Xeomin. It can be used on most skin types and tones. It is not recommended if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have a chronic disease that affects your muscles.
When you come to us for an initial consultation, we can discuss your goals and expectations. We can also explain how Xeomin works and whether it is the right treatment for you. This is an important part of helping you obtain your desired results. We will also help you prepare for your treatment and take care of your skin after your Xeomin injection.
What Makes Xeomin So Great?
Xeomin is worth your time and money. It provides consistent results without much of a hassle. Here are a few more things that make Xeomin a great treatment.
You don’t have to dread your Xeomin treatments. We will apply a topical numbing cream to prevent any discomfort during the session.
No Downtime Required
Xeomin does not require any recovery. You can go back to work or other daily activities after your treatment.
Xeomin treatments don’t take long to complete. You can be in and out of the treatment in under an hour.
You can enjoy younger-looking skin for 3-4 months. Once the results wear off, you can join us for another quick treatment.
Because Xeomin is made of botulinum toxin A, you are less likely to develop an allergic reaction or antibodies that will decrease the effectiveness of Xeomin.
