Fine lines and facial wrinkles are inevitable. However, wrinkle relaxers like Xeomin and Dysport address the root cause of your facial wrinkles and expression lines without surgeries, making your face look relaxed and youthful.
What is Xeomin?
Xeomin is a neurotoxin modulator, like Dysport and Botox. It softens the expression lines on the face, such as the frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet. Expression lines appear because of the overuse of specific facial muscles. Xeomin relaxes the targeted muscles, thereby softening the associated wrinkles. While Xeomin is FDA-approved to treat moderate-to-severe frown lines, it can also correct other facial wrinkles.
What Does Xeomin Treat?
Horizontal forehead lines
Glabellar lines, also known as frown lines, between the eyebrows
Crow’s feet around the eyes
Bunny lines around the bridge of the nose
Perioral or lipstick lines around the mouth
Other facial wrinkles and creases
How Does Xeomin Work?
Xeomin belongs to a category of cosmetic injectables known as neuromodulators, aka wrinkle relaxers. Neuromodulators are made of the active ingredient botulinum toxin type A. When injected into targeted facial tissues, botulinum toxin type A blocks communication between nerve endings and the muscles responsible for your dynamic wrinkles, thereby softening the associated wrinkles.
Don’t have underlying medical conditions that preclude this treatment
Dr. Fernandez places the utmost importance on safety. He performs thorough assessments to ensure you’re a viable candidate for Xeomin before your treatment. He reviews your medical history, discusses your expectations, and asks about your current medications. Based on his evaluation, he determines if you’re a suitable candidate for Xeomin injections.
How is Xeomin Different From Other Wrinkle Relaxers?
Most neuromodulators, including Dysport, contain protein additives to facilitate the absorption of botulinum toxin type A. However, these protein additives also increase your body’s tolerance, so you may eventually stop responding to Botox and Dysport. However, Xeomin is a naked form of botulinum toxin type A without protein additives, so your body doesn’t develop a tolerance to it. As such, Xeomin can be used repeatedly without losing efficacy.
What Happens During the Xeomin Treatment?
Dr. Fernandez applies a numbing gel on your face and marks the treatment areas. He selects the ideal Xeomin dosage to ensure naturalized results and injects it into the targeted areas. The number of injections depends on your overall goals. The entire process takes 15 to 20 minutes.
What Are the Side Effects of Xeomin?
Xeomin is a safe procedure with minimal side effects and negligible risk of complications. You may experience redness, swelling, bruising, and tenderness around the injection points, but these side effects dissipate in a few days. You can resume your daily activities and work immediately, but you should avoid strenuous workouts for 24 hours.
What Are the Results Like?
Xeomin results start appearing after 3 to 4 days, with continued improvements for 1 to 2 weeks. The final results last for 3 to 4 months, following which you’ll need a maintenance treatment. Dr. Fernandez also provides touch-ups within one month, if necessary, at no additional cost.
