Repeated facial expressions like squinting cause muscle contractions that ultimately result in wrinkles. A Xeomin injection decreases the contraction of the targeted muscle by inhibiting the muscle’s nerve activity. The corresponding skin relaxes and becomes smoother, reducing the appearance of the wrinkle. In addition, wrinkles become less visible with repeated Xeomin treatments.
Xeomin is an additive-free formulation of botulinum toxin type A, the same active ingredient found in Botox and Dysport. Xeomin’s specific formulation reduces its risk of allergic reaction and may lessen a patient’s likelihood of forming antibodies in response to the injection, which could decrease an injectable’s efficacy. Unlike other muscle inhibitors, Xeomin does not require refrigeration or special handling, which may reduce its price.
Xeomin is most well-known for softening the frown lines between the eyebrows, but it is also highly effective on the crow’s feet and fine lines around the eyes, forehead creases, upper lip lines, chin wrinkles and dimples, and wrinkles on the neck. Xeomin alone cannot treat every type of wrinkle, so your Be Medispa professional may also recommend that you complement your Xeomin treatment with an injectable filler such as Juvederm or Restylane.
Xeomin is a simple, inpatient procedure using only local anesthesia. Xeomin is practically risk-free and side effects are virtually nonexistant. The entire procedure typically takes less than 30 minutes and involves only minimal discomfort. After a Xeomin injection, you’ll begin to see results in a day or two. You’ll notice continual improvement over a period of about two weeks. For the average patient, Xeomin’s affect on the muscles lasts for about 3 to 4 months.
