Xeomin is a cosmetic injectable that corrects moderate to severe frown lines, i.e., the vertical lines between the eyebrows. While it’s FDA-approved to treat frown lines, it’s also used to correct other dynamic wrinkles on the face, such as the forehead lines, crow’s feet, and lipstick lines. This treatment temporarily relaxes the facial muscles and softens the associated expression lines. Our expert team at Medical Aesthetics provides the best Xeomin in Evergreen.
What Is Xeomin?
How Does Xeomin Work?
Xeomin is a neuromodulator that temporarily paralyzes the facial muscles responsible for your expression lines. It consists of a neurotoxin protein called botulinum toxin type A that blocks communications between nerve endings and muscles. When injected underneath targeted facial tissues, it prevents the facial muscles from contracting, thereby softening the associated wrinkles.
How Is Xeomin Different From BOTOX?
Both BOTOX® Cosmetic and Xeomin are made of botulinum toxin type A, suitable for correcting dynamic wrinkles. However, BOTOX contains other protein additives, while Xeomin is a “naked” injectable without additional proteins. While your body eventually develops a tolerance to BOTOX, it doesn’t develop a tolerance to Xeomin even after repeated usage.
How Is the Xeomin Treatment Performed?
The aesthetic technician carefully examines your skin, discusses your goals, and curates a treatment plan. Each treatment is unique — the dosage is selected based on your individual needs. After a numbing gel is applied to your skin, the aesthetic technician delivers the appropriate Xeomin dose into the targeted treatment area. Depending on the number of injections, your Xeomin in Evergreen concludes in 15 to 30 minutes.
Am I a Candidate for Xeomin?
You’re a suitable candidate for Xeomin if you’re at least 18 years of age and have realistic expectations from the procedure. However, our aesthetic technicians will review your medical history and examine your treatment areas to ensure you’re the ideal candidate.
