We communicate with our expressions and faces, but this can unfortunately cause creases and wrinkles to form over time. Although these give you character and uniqueness, it’s common to want to rejuvenate your look and erase signs of aging. One extremely effective option is injectable treatments like Xeomin®.
Xeomin® is an injectable option like Botox®. Classified as a neuromodulator, it works by blocking chemical signals from the brain to individual muscles that normally cause movement. This process prevents further wrinkle formation and relaxes furrows and tension, smoothing out wrinkles. Xeomin® is made with a special fermented form of botulinumtoxin type A, a type of bacteria.
Xeomin® is an excellent option for many patients. It has its pros and cons over Botox®, namely that it doesn’t have additives that can make the body resistant to it or react negatively. Additionally, it may last slightly longer. During a consultation, our experts will discuss your goals for cosmetic treatment and recommend the best injectable options for you.
Xeomin® treatments can take as little as 15 minutes. We can supply a topical anesthetic so that you’re relaxed and comfortable during the treatment session. Once you’re ready, the product is carefully injected into each individual muscle causing unwanted wrinkles. Afterward, you can return home.
Xeomin® can take around 5 days to take effect. However, your results will last from between 3 to 6 months, after which you can return for re-treatment. To fully address signs of aging, our expert team can recommend the right physician-grade products and skincare treatments to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Neuromodulators are some of the most effective ways to relax wrinkles without incisions or downtime. To learn more about Xeomin® and Botox® alternatives, contact our Beverly Hills office by calling or filling out our online form.
