If you are experiencing the appearance of aging signs on your facial skin, and are looking for an effective solution for reclaiming younger looking skin, maybe it’s time you consider xeomin treatments.
What is it?
Similar to Botox and Dysport, Xeomin is an FDA-approved injectable designed to treat brow wrinkles, crow’s feet, facial creases, and frown lines. However, patients whose aesthetic experience with Botox or Dysport are unsatisfactory may have more success with Xeomin. For more information, contact Dr. Usal in Paramus, NJ.
How Does It Work?
The active ingredient in Xeomin is not coated with proteins, unlike Botox and Dysport, but it works in the same way. Proteins in the toxins attract antibodies that end up surrounding the active ingredient. Xeomin undergoes an extra step of purification so that there is no complexing protein. This is effective at addressing the underlying cause of wrinkles.
What To Expect During Treatment
Treatments are non-invasive and cause minimal-discomfort.The treatment usually takes 10 to 15 minutes. During the actual treatment, Xeomin is injected beneath the skin through the use of a tiny micro-needle. It then works to successfully target the muscle, and smooth the surface skin from within. This is designed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, as well as prevent them from worsening in the future.
Unlike the tight feeling of Botox, Xeomin is designed to leave your overall facial expression relaxed, but alert. Wrinkles in the forehead and around the eyes may become smoother and brows may lift and eyes should be more open. Wrinkle reduction varies among patients and results typically last a few months. The time between sessions increases with repeated treatments. Because it is also a non-invasive solution, there is no required downtime following treatments.
Who Is A Good Candidate?
If you have frown or forehead lines, crow’s feet, and smile lines around the eyes you could benefit from treatments. If you are looking for a safe and effective solution for smoothing away the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles you could be a candidate. The best way to determine if you are a suitable candidate for Xeomin treatments is through a consultation.
