As we age, the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines becomes increasingly noticeable, fueling a growing interest in non-invasive treatments that offer natural-looking results. While surgical options are available, many individuals are seeking lighter, less intrusive ways to rejuvenate their appearance without going under the knife.
Xeomin is a next-generation neurotoxin that temporarily smooths frown lines between the eyebrows. This treatment can give you a refreshed look without altering your ability to express yourself. At Skinlogic, we focus on research-based, medical-grade cosmetic treatments to meet your unique skincare needs. Conveniently located in Severna Park, MD, we’re here to help you achieve your personal aesthetic goals.
Xeomin is a type of neuromodulator, which means it works by putting up a roadblock between the nerves and the muscles. Unlike other neuromodulators, Xeomin is uniquely purified to remove any proteins that are not needed for treatment. This results in a highly concentrated product that can effectively smooth wrinkles while allowing you to maintain natural facial expressions.
The primary FDA-approved use for Xeomin is to help minimize frown lines, sometimes called glabellar lines or 11s, between the eyebrows. These lines can give the face a stern or displeased appearance, even when you’re feeling your best. Improving and lifting the facial appearance while maintaining normal expression and facial movement is one of the main reasons people seek Xeomin treatments.
One feature of Xeomin is its status as a “naked” injectable, meaning it doesn’t contain any additional proteins or additives. This stripped-down formulation allows for a more targeted treatment, reducing the likelihood of developing resistance to the neuromodulator over time.
If you’re looking for an option that offers a subtle change without making you look “overdone,” a Xeomin treatment may be an excellent choice. Because of its purified formulation, Xeomin provides results that are both light and natural-looking, letting your real self shine through.
Another benefit of choosing Xeomin is the speed and ease of the procedure. Typically, a session takes no more than 20 minutes, allowing you to fit it into even the busiest of schedules. The treatment involves a series of small injections, making it a non-invasive alternative to more drastic cosmetic procedures.
Perhaps one of the most attractive aspects of Xeomin is that there’s virtually no downtime post-treatment. You can immediately resume your normal activities, making it a convenient option for those who can’t afford to take time off work or other commitments.
Xeomin’s highly purified formulation allows for precise targeting of specific muscles, offering you greater control over the results. This is especially beneficial for treating smaller areas or for fine-tuning previous treatments.
Another key benefit of Xeomin is its versatility in treating all different skin types. Its purified formulation minimizes the risk of skin irritation or allergic reactions, making it an accessible option for a diverse range of patients.
There is no way to tell for sure how long Xeomin will last. However, the effects of Xeomin injections generally last around three to four months. The timeline may be influenced by factors such as metabolism, muscle activity, and the specific area being treated.
After a Xeomin treatment, you can typically expect to see results within three to five days. However, it’s worth noting that the full effects might not be noticeable until about two weeks post-treatment. Most people will notice a subtle increase in effectiveness for the first few weeks and then a plateau before results begin to fade several months later.
Both Xeomin and Botox are types of neuromodulators used for similar cosmetic purposes. When it comes to longevity, the duration of their effects is about the same. The choice between the two often comes down to personal preference and specific treatment goals. We use and recommend both for different patients.
While the duration of Xeomin injections is generally fixed, some strategies might extend its longevity. These can include maintaining a consistent skincare regimen and avoiding extreme sun exposure. However, it’s crucial to consult with us for personalized advice tailored to your needs.
