Do the wrinkles on your face make you feel old? If Botox (or other injectables) is not on your list, Xeomin may be the key. As the purest toxin on the market, Xeomin doesn’t have any extra proteins or preservatives.
This makes it less likely that you’ll have an immune or allergic reaction. That means you can use these wrinkle relaxers without worrying about having a bad reaction.
At SeaMist MedSpa, we offer this neuromodulator to help the wrinkles (not only in your forehead) but in the other parts of your body! See this post and learn more about how this treatment works.
Injections of Xeomin have been approved for several medical uses, such as treating spasms in the upper limbs, blepharospasm, and cervical dystonia. But it has been approved to treat the lines between your eyebrows that show when you frown.
Some people also use it for crow’s feet and horizontal lines on the forehead, which is not on the label. Off-label means that the FDA hasn’t approved it for a particular use, but doctors have found that it works well for something other than what it was authorized for.
Xeomin vs. Botox
Xeomin injections are a bit different from Botox because they don’t have the extra proteins that Botox does. This makes them a purer way to treat wrinkles. So, how will this affect you? Well, it could mean you can use it for longer and better. It could also mean that Xeomin costs less on average.
Since Xeomin has been cleaned up, it doesn’t need to be kept cold, which makes it more appealing to some doctors. Botox needs to be held in the fridge. Some clients say those warm Xeomin injections are more comfortable than cold Botox injections, even though both are well tolerated.
So, Can You Get Rid Of Wrinkles On
Your Forehead With Xeomin?
Yes, Xeomin works by relaxing the facial and forehead muscles that cause wrinkles. Xeomin is a good treatment for people who want to look younger and have a more enthusiastic face.
Xeomin Treatment Options
As with most muscle-relaxing toxins, Xeomin can be used in various ways and places. Xeomin can be used in frown lines, also called glabellar lines. These lines form between your eyebrows when you frown.
Xeomin also helps to relax these lines and stop new ones from appearing, giving you a fresh, young-looking appearance. Crow’s feet are the fine lines on the outside corners of your eyes when you smile, laugh, or squint a lot.
Xeomin smooths out these lines, giving you back your younger, smoother look. As we state, you can also treat your forehead lines or wrinkles using Xeomin. This treatment can help soften and smooth out those annoying lines, giving you back your smooth, young skin.
Another one, Xeomin, can be used to prevent and eliminate the pain caused by bruxism (grinding your teeth) and TMJ (temporomandibular joint dysfunction). Xeomin relaxes the tight muscles in the jaw, which can cause pain. It also makes a face look thinner.
The Best Candidate For The Treatment
This standard treatment is suitable for many patients, including those who want to look younger and those who have been using Botox for years but are starting to notice that it doesn’t work as well as it used to.
To decide if Xeomin is right for you, your doctor or healthcare provider might meet you to look after your appearance, personal situation, and areas of concern. During this consultation, you must also tell us about your health history. If you are a good candidate for Xeomin, you will get a customized treatment plan that may include other toxins and fillers to get the best results.
Take note that most people can take Xeomin without any problems. However, you should not take Xeomin if you have reacted badly to a similar treatment. Suppose there is an infection at the injection site. In that case, Xeomin cannot be injected, and people with neuromuscular diseases should not use it.
Again, before you get an injection, you must tell us about any drugs, vitamins, or supplements you are taking. Healthy adults with lines, wrinkles, or sagging skin are good candidates. If you are pregnant or nursing, you should not take Xeomin.
How many shots will I have to take?
At SeaMist MedSpa, your treatment is based on your goals and needs. When you meet with your specialist, they will figure out the best way to treat moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines, among other things.
Remember that only Neurotoxins Cosmetic is approved to treat all three of these areas. For crow’s feet, your doctor will inject three spots on the side of the eye where the muscle is.
Your specialist will give you five injections into the muscles between your brows and your forehead to eliminate frown lines. They will also give you five injections into a muscle in your forehead to help with the lines on it.
Is Xeomin safe?
When done by a skilled and experienced injector, Xeomin is a safe, non-invasive, and FDA-approved procedure with a low risk of side effects. Since it has no extra proteins or additives, Xeomin is the safest toxin for the risk of an immune response.
Results and Follow-ups
The best thing about Xeomin is that you can return to your normal activities and work as soon as you leave the office. Xeomin is different from Botox because it takes a little longer to start working.
Results vary from person to person, but you should start to see changes after 3–4 days, and you should see the full effects after two weeks. We suggest making a follow-up appointment in 4-6 weeks so that we can look at the results and, if needed, give more injections to boost the effects.
Since Xeomin usually lasts four months, you can return here at SeaMist MedSpa to keep your natural, young look.
