Xeomin® is a medication available through prescription. It is injected into a person’s muscles to provide a temporary improvement to the appearance of frown lines found between your eyebrows. Xeomin® is similar to BOTOX® in the way it treats wrinkles, but there are some differences which may make this treatment a better option for some.
How Xeomin® Works
Whenever you squint or frown, the muscles found between the eyebrows go through a slight contraction. This makes your skin fold and furrow. As you get older, your skin stops making as much collagen as it used to, which prevents the skin from being as elastic. Rather than snapping back to its original state, the skin begins to stay folded when you frown.
Xeomin® is formulated from a purified protein solution that reacts with the nerve endings in your muscles to keep the fibers from going through the contraction. With the reduction of contractions, the treatment causes a temporary reduction in your eyebrow lines.
Who Can Benefit from Xeomin®?
This treatment is formulated for adults who are dealing with moderate or severe frown lines. It’s available for all genders and skin tones as long as you’re over the age of 21. Qualifying factors may be discussed at your consultation.
The treatment process involves an injection of Xeomin® into the treatment site. The amount of treatments needed will vary from person to person, and this will also be discussed at your consultation.
Visible smoothing of your frown lines can occur within one to three days following the injection. In most cases, it takes less than a week to see results. The majority of people have effects that last a maximum of three months. However, the length of time the treatment lasts will vary depending on the individual.
Does Xeomin® Really Improve Your Appearance?
Frown lines are one of the most common signs of aging. Many people experience anxiety over their frown lines. If your lines are a problem, this treatment can smooth them, which can help you look both youthful and relaxed. In some cases, this treatment might be combined with a treatment that stimulates collagen production, so the skin’s elasticity increases.
