If you have noticed the lines in between your eyebrows getting deeper with time, you may be looking for an anti-aging treatment to resolve these lines. Xeomin injections offer a non-invasive way to target glabellar lines and other wrinkles on your face.
At Impressions Skin Solutions in Hendersonville, TN, we offer a wide range of neuromodulator treatments to address wrinkles caused by facial expressions. We work hard to find the most effective treatments for every patient to help them meet their aesthetic goals. With Xeomin, you can enjoy natural-looking results that may help you look and feel more like your younger self.
What Is Xeomin?
While you may have heard of other neuromodulators such as Botox®, you may not be familiar with Xeomin. This medication is a unique formulation that provides different benefits for patients seeking to erase expression lines.
Xeomin is an injectable that is made from a purified form of botulinum toxin type A. This active ingredient targets nerve endings in the injection area and prevents them from releasing the chemicals needed to tell muscles to contract. As the medication begins to work, muscle movement begins to decrease in the muscles that were injected with Xeomin.
When these muscles relax, the skin around the area stays flat and smooth, minimizing the appearance of lines and wrinkles and making the skin appear more youthful and revitalized. These results continue until your body metabolizes the medication, allowing your muscles to regain full motion.
Benefits of Xeomin Treatments
Reduced Glabellar Lines
Glabellar lines, sometimes called frown lines or 11s, are the little lines that often appear in between the eyebrows. They occur naturally with age, but they can be exacerbated by certain factors such as genetics, certain habitual facial expressions, sun exposure, smoking, and more.
Xeomin is particularly well suited for treating these vertical lines. By injecting the solution into several points along your eyebrows, we can make a big difference in your appearance while making sure you still look like you.
Light and Natural-Looking Results
Most patients who come for anti-wrinkle treatments don’t want to look frozen. Xeomin offers a light treatment with natural-looking results when administered by experienced injectors like those at our practice. We always listen to the results that you are hoping to have, and we customize our treatments based on what you communicate to us.
Fast, Painless Treatments With No Downtime
Xeomin offers patients many benefits without requiring a lot in return. You will get to enjoy your results without having to worry about invasive procedures that are painful and require a long recovery. Injections are given with a small needle that only delivers a small pinch, and you can return to your schedule immediately afterwards.
What Are the Cosmetic Uses for Xeomin?
Xeomin has received FDA approval for treating frown lines. However, it can also be used to treat other dynamic wrinkles such as crow’s feet or forehead lines. The product that we use to treat each concern will be determined based on a variety of individual factors including your treatment history, your goals, and the speed and duration of treatment that you want.
Can Xeomin Be Used For Medical Concerns?
At our clinic, we may choose Xeomin or other neuromodulators to help treat medical conditions such as excessive sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis. This neuromodulator can help to block messages in the body that prompt sweat glands to overproduce, allowing symptoms of excessive sweating to resolve for several months.
How Does Xeomin Compare With Other Neuromodulators?
When comparing Xeomin vs. Botox, we always keep in mind our patients. Both of these neuromodulators can be very effective at treating wrinkles. However, there are certain differences that may recommend one or the other to certain patients.
Unlike Botox, which contains added proteins, Xeomin is a “naked” neurotoxin. This means that the botulinum toxin is the only ingredient. This recommends this particular product to patients who have experienced allergies to the added proteins or who have developed a resistance to other neuromodulators. With Xeomin, it is more difficult to develop antibodies against the product.
What Is the Xeomin Treatment Process?
Coming in for a Consultation
Making sure you get the treatment that is right for you is important to us. That is why we always have you schedule a consultation before any treatment. At our consultations, we will discuss whether you have tried injectables before, talk about your health history, and go over your goals for your Xeomin treatment.
When you arrive for your Xeomin injections, we will make sure that your skin is clean and sterilized. We may apply a topical anesthetic if you have requested it. We will examine the motion of your facial muscles and plan our injections based on your facial structure. Then we will administer several units of the product into these locations.
Post Treatment Instructions
Once your treatment is complete, you will be able to continue on with your day. We may have some post treatment instructions to help maximize your results. We recommend avoiding touching your face or scratching the injection sites. You may be instructed to stay away from certain medications to minimize bruising, and we will have you stay upright for several hours after your Xeomin treatment.
