Xeomin® in Melbourne, FL

What is Xeomin®?
Xeomin® is a dermal filler containing botulinum toxin. This agent temporarily relaxes facial muscles to prevent wrinkles such as laugh lines, that can form as a result of repetitive contractions associated with certain facial expressions. Xeomin® works similarly to Botox® and other botulinum toxin injections. By temporarily relaxing the underlying muscles, the skin naturally becomes smoother, and lines and wrinkles caused by repetitive muscle contractions begin to fade away and become less pronounced each day.
What Does Xeomin® Treat?
Xeomin® is specifically formulated to treat “dynamic wrinkles” caused by repetitive contractions in the facial muscles of the forehead and brow area. When those muscles are relaxed, the entire face appears more relaxed, and skin appears smoother and firmer.
Xeomin® treats furrows and worry lines between the brows that can make you look angry or stressed, as well as the muscles of the upper facial region surrounding the brow and forehead. Xeomin® also keeps those facial muscles from contracting for several months, which prevents further formation of lines and creases in those areas, while smoothing out existing ones.
How Does Xeomin® Compare to Botox®?
While Xeomin® is similar to Botox® and both may be used together, Xeomin® has a lower potential for any adverse or allergic reaction because it contains no additives. Xeomin® treatments also provide faster results, and Xeomin® is generally less costly than Botox®. Like Botox®, Xeomin® is a minimally invasive treatment that effectively smoothes lines and wrinkles for up to six months, rejuvenating the facial appearance.18
Am I a Good Candidate for Xeomin®?
Any healthy adult seeking a more youthful appearance and smoother skin may be an ideal candidate for Xeomin®. Xeomin® is useful in younger patients to prevent the formation of wrinkles. It also creates smoothness, firmness, and radiance in mature skin that has lost its tone and elasticity.
How Should I Prepare For Xeomin® Treatment?
Our skin care specialist will evaluate your medical history to make sure you are a good candidate for Xeomin®. You may be asked to suspend the use of certain medications, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, blood thinners, allergy medications, sleep aids, NSAIDS, or muscle relaxers to prepare for your injection treatment. It is also recommended you postpone treatment for a later date if you have received other dermal injections within the last four months, or if you have any skin irritation or infection.
What Can I Expect from a Xeomin® Treatment?
We use a topical numbing agent to ensure your maximum comfort during treatment. Xeomin® is then injected directly into the muscle tissue using a very fine needle. Xeomin® treatment takes about one hour, and provides results that may last up to six months. You may resume normal activities immediately after treatment, as there is no recovery period needed.
