Looking Amazing With Xeomin®
Xeomin® is an alternative to BOTOX® that temporarily reduces fine lines and wrinkles upon the face. This aesthetic treatment continues its escalating rise in popularity as it produces a visibly youthful and refreshed look that can last 3 to 4 months. Xeomin® like BOTOX® and another facial injectable, Dysport® is derived from botulinum neurotoxin and can be administered to treat the same areas.
A treatment with Xeomin® is administered with a predetermined solution injected in prescribed amounts on desired areas on the face or neck. The most commonly treated areas are the frown lines (known as the glabellar lines), creases in the forehead and crow’s feet. Some of the other areas around the face that Xeomin® treats are:
- “Bunny Lines” of the nose
- Reduce “Gummy Smile”
- Lip lines
- Droopy eyebrows
- The neck
Xeomin® is also being found to treat other conditions like excessive sweating in the armpit region known as hyperhidrosis.
Xeomin® has been made available in the US since late 2011, although it has been actively used in other countries since 2005. As BOTOX® and Dysport® have helped countless clients appear more youthful, questions have understandably arisen between the different treatments.
Plastic surgeon, Dr. Sadi Erfani helps to provide information regarding the treatment and proprietary differences between BOTOX®, Dysport® and Xeomin®.
The procedure is quick and can often be completed in as little as 15 to 20 minutes. Anesthesia is not mandatory as tiny needle injections are used so discomfort is minimal. There is almost no downtime recovery. One can typically return back to their normal day immediately right after treatment. There may be some slight redness from the sites at injection, but can easily be hidden with light makeup.
Desired results typically appear within 48 hours to as much as ten days depending on the amount and treatment. Some report almost a noticeable difference even sooner. Xeomin® injections are often combined with other procedures like facelift surgery or a liquid facelift to maximize results. As like most facial injectables, subsequent treatment with Xeomin® is necessary to maintain one’s desired appearance.
