Since it was introduced in early 2013, Xeomin has been a hot product. Many patients have come to Cole Dermatology & Aesthetic Center for Xeomin treatments to successfully smooth facial wrinkles and fine lines.
What is Xeomin?
Xeomin is similar to BOTOX, because both share the same active ingredient: Botulinum toxin A, a purified neurotoxin. But unlike BOTOX, Xeomin has fewer additional ingredients such as extra proteins – meaning it is less likely to trigger an immune response that could make the treatment less successful.
Xeomin is known for being very effective in treating deep frown lines between the eyebrows, and has also become popular with younger patients who want an effective wrinkle-prevention treatment right from the start.
How Does Xeomin Work?
Like BOTOX, Xeomin intercepts signals from the brain to certain facial muscles to prevent them from contracting. Keeping facial muscles relaxed in wrinkle-prone areas can help prevent or alleviate wrinkles and reduce laugh or smile lines. Xeomin can be used in many areas, such as the forehead, crow’s feet, upper lip lines, neck bands and more.
The Xeomin Procedure
At your Xeomin treatment, we will make the experience as quick and painless as possible. Though we use a tiny needle for Xeomin injections, there may be some redness and slight swelling at the injection site that will go down in the next few days. Over the following week, you’ll begin to see results.
How Long Do the Effects of Xeomin Last?
A Xeomin wrinkle reduction treatment takes effect in about a week and usually lasts around 3-6 months. The Xeomin will gradually dissipate on its own, without needing to be removed. For more information about Xeomin, click here.
