Xeomin Injections for Wrinkles in South Florida
What is XEOMIN®?
XEOMIN® is an FDA-approved prescription medicine for moderate to severe wrinkles and frown lines between the eyebrows. Clinically proven to reduce the appearance of forehead lines, XEOMIN® is the latest treatment alternative to BOTOX®. The solution is made from botulinum toxin, which is the same active ingredient found in BOTOX®. The main difference is that XEOMIN® does not have additives, which helps to limit negative side effects.
Why are XEOMIN® injections used?
Glabellar lines, which are the frown lines found between the eyebrows, are formed over time due to facial muscle contraction when making expressions with the eyebrows. As your body ages, your skin loses elasticity, causing these folds and lines to form. XEOMIN® injections are used to help reduce the appearance of these frown lines in the forehead.
What does XEOMIN® treatment involve?
Like all prescription medications, it is important to speak with a trusted physician before undergoing XEOMIN® treatment. Let your doctor know about any allergies, your medical history, and other relevant information to determine if the treatment is right for you.
During the procedure, the XEOMIN® solution is injected into the treatment area(s) by your dermatologist. The amount of the solution used and the area(s) injected will be determined by your doctor and will vary based on each patient’s individual needs.
For most, XEOMIN® shows results within about a week, and patients can generally return to everyday activities immediately following the procedure.
How many XEOMIN® injections do I need?
Usually, the results of XEOMIN® treatment take effect within one week of treatment and last from three to six months. No two people have the same skin, so results will vary. Speak with your dermatologist to determine what to expect when using XEOMIN® and the best treatment plan for your needs.
