Xeomin® benefits may not be discussed as much as some other products but it shouldn’t be overlooked. It can be a great anti-aging treatment. By reducing wrinkles, you get smoother, more youthful looking skin.
It is a popular method to reduce fine to severe lines in your face without surgery. Xeomin® visibly reduces frown lines between the eyebrows, furrows on the forehead and wrinkles around the outer edges of the eyes.
The treatment works by paralyzing the muscles beneath the skin where the injection is applied. Doing this prevents the muscles from moving around too much and creating deep wrinkles in the skin. While you’ll still have movement in your face, it won’t be excess movement when you’re making facial expressions.
The injection contains botulinum type A, the same active ingredient in Botox® and Dysport®. But, unlike Botox® and Dysport®, Xeomin® is free from additives. It’s manufactured in a way where it removes accessory proteins from the active ingredient, botulinum type A. So, you get the same result without unnecessary proteins.
Botulinum toxin injections can also be used as a preventive measure to maintain smooth skin. Wrinkles form as collagen beneath the skin creases and tears with repeated movement like squinting or frowning. Xeomin® can be used to keep those wrinkles from forming by blocking signals from nerves to muscles, causing the muscles to relax.
The injection process takes less than 10 minutes and is minimally invasive. You’ll feel a pinch but your provider will numb the skin beforehand with a topical cream. Side effects are minimal and may include slight bruising or swelling of the injected areas, but should subside a few days after your procedure.
The results last three to four months, depending on age and skin quality. Prices for Xeomin® are similar to Botox ®and Dysport®.
