As we get older, our skin tends to lose its elasticity and softness, which often results in wrinkles and fine lines on our faces. Fortunately, there are now numerous methods and treatments that can help counteract the aging process and rejuvenate our skin. Among these treatments, Xeomin has proved to be one of the most effective methods for facial wrinkles and fine lines.
XEOMIN is an alternative to other injectables that is a non-surgical cosmetic enhancement procedure. This quick, in-office treatment can give you a more youthful, refreshed appearance by smoothing out signs of wrinkles and fine lines in specific areas along the face. With personalized treatment plans from our skilled and experienced team at Advanced Aesthetics in Las Vegas, NV, our attention to detail helps to prevent “frozen” features. We pride ourselves on providing patients with natural-looking results that address their unique and individual concerns.
What Is Xeomin?
Xeomin, similar to Botox, is an injectable treatment that targets dynamic wrinkles caused by repeated muscle movements. The primary ingredient of Xeomin is botulinum toxin type A, a purified neurotoxin derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. By blocking nerve signals to specific muscles, Xeomin effectively relaxes these muscles, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and lines on the face.
What Areas Does XEOMIN® Treat?
Some of the most commonly treated areas are mild to moderate fine lines on the face, such as:
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead lines
- Laugh lines
- Frown lines
- “Bunny” lines
- Chin dimpling
During your consultation, we will discuss your goals and help you determine if you are an eligible candidate for XEOMIN®.
Benefits of Xeomin
At Advanced Aesthetics in Las Vegas, NV, we understand that achieving your desired aesthetic goals is important to you. That’s why we offer Xeomin, a cutting-edge treatment that comes with a host of benefits. Let’s explore the specific advantages that make Xeomin an exceptional choice for facial rejuvenation.
Treats Wrinkles and Lines With Precision
Xeomin targets and smooths out wrinkles caused by muscle contractions. It can help with forehead creases, crow’s feet, and frown lines by temporarily relaxing the underlying muscles, giving your skin a smoother and more youthful look.
Quick, Convenient, and Minimal Downtime
With Xeomin, you can achieve remarkable results without disrupting your daily routine. The treatment is relatively quick, taking only 15 to 30 minutes, making it an excellent option for those with packed calendars. Additionally, Xeomin requires minimal downtime, allowing you to resume your normal activities immediately afterward.
Provides Results for Months
Xeomin provides lasting results for cosmetic treatments, with effects often lasting three to four months or longer. Regular maintenance sessions can help maintain a youthful appearance.
Although Xeomin is an alternative injectable treatment, there are many questions that new patients have about the injections. Here are a few of the most frequently asked questions. If you would like more information, please do not hesitate to contact us today. We are always happy to answer questions and can help you schedule a consultation to discuss your options.
How does Xeomin differ from Botox?
While both Xeomin and Botox are neurotoxin-based injectables used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines, they have some differences. Xeomin contains only one ingredient, botulinum toxin type A, whereas Botox contains additional proteins. This makes Xeomin a purer form of the neurotoxin.
Additionally, some individuals may develop antibodies to the proteins in Botox, which can reduce its effectiveness over time. As a result, Xeomin may be a preferred option for those who have developed resistance to Botox or are looking for a purer neurotoxin-based treatment.
How long do results last?
Results can vary from person to person, but on average XEOMIN® Injections can provide facial rejuvenation results that last three to four months. After the effects begin to fade, follow-up treatment can maintain results. In fact, some patients have noticed results tend to last longer after each repeat visit.
When will I see results?
Optimal results from facial rejuvenation with XEOMIN® should be seen within approximately seven days after treatment.
What is the treatment like?
Treatment is typically fairly brief – approximately ten minutes, depending on the number of treatment areas. XEOMIN®, which is a prescription medication (onabotulinumtoxinA) is carefully injected using a fine needle. According to your treatment plan, injections will be made in desired areas to temporarily prevent underlying facial muscles in the target areas from contracting (it is this muscle contraction that creates the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines).
Will the injections hurt?
Our team always does their best to put your comfort first. The needle used for the injections is very fine, and we can use a topical numbing agent prior to the procedure to help minimize any pain at the injection sites.
Do the injections cause bruising?
During the week before you have XEOMIN® Injections, we recommend avoiding any blood thinners, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, as well as vitamin E supplements or fish oil. These medications can all lead to increased bruising and bleeding at the injection sites.
How long is the recovery period?
There is usually no recovery period needed after XEOMIN® injections. Most patients are able to return to their daily activities immediately after treatment has been completed. There can be redness, swelling or bruising occasionally, but these side effects are minimal and should fade quickly.
