Xeomin® is a cosmetic procedure used to treat fine lines and wrinkles. This neuromodulator is composed of a single purified protein which works similarly to Botox and Dysport. Once injected, it relaxes the facial muscles, so they do not contract, beginning to soften the look of lines and wrinkles.
Benefits of Xeomin®
Xeomin® is a great starter product for those who are new to injectable cosmetic treatments. It is a purified product, which may reduce the likelihood of developing a resistance to extra proteins that are present in the other FDA-approved products used for treating facial wrinkles. Because of this, it is often recommended for men and women who no longer achieve desired results with Botox and Dysport. At OBI BioAesthetic Institute, we use Xeomin® to address the following cosmetic concerns:
- Horizontal lines across the forehead
- Vertical lines between the brows, or “11s”
- Frown lines
- Crow’s feet
- Fine lines around the eyes
- Fine lines around the mouth
- Nasolabial folds
- Chin wrinkles and chin dimples
- Wrinkles on the neck from teeth clenching or grinding
What Can I Expect During Xeomin® Treatment?
Treatment with Xeomin® is not painful, and the procedure is typically completed in as little as twenty minutes. One of our expertly trained practitioners will inject the product into the target area using an ultra-fine needle. There is no downtime, and you can go back to your daily routine straight from our office. Some patients may experience mild redness and bruising, which can be reduced by avoiding medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen and vitamin E for one week prior to treatment. The use of arnica may also help some patients avoid bruising. Wrinkles will begin to smooth away within the next few days, and results will generally last up to three months.
