Along with many benefits, aging has some downsides, too. One of the downsides that many people find concerning is wrinkling of the skin. At Novo Med Spa in Frisco, TX, our Xeomin treatment can provide you with a way to look and feel your best again.
Where Is Xeomin Used?
If aging has caused a significant change to your appearance that you’re not satisfied with, don’t feel like you need to put up with it forever. There are ways that you can get rid of unwanted fine lines and wrinkles and get back your healthy and youthful appearance.
One way you can do this is through Xeomin injections. This is a neuromodulator that is injected into the skin using a fine needle. It helps to smooth out wrinkles and lines by relaxing the muscles underneath the skin. This filler can be used to target several areas on your face.
The area between your eyebrows is a common place to get wrinkles. When you frown or furrow your brow, you may have noticed 11-shaped lines appearing in between your eyebrows. These are often called frown lines. Over time, these creases can become permanent wrinkles, making you look far older than you are.
This injectable is great for targeting frown lines. By smoothing these particular wrinkles out, it will help you maintain a youthful appearance. It will also help you look happier and more relaxed.
It’s very common for the area around your eyes to wrinkle faster than other areas of your face. This is because the skin here is much thinner than it is around your mouth, for example. The very fine lines that appear around the corners of your eyes are called crows feet.
These wrinkles can age your appearance considerably. If you’re looking for a way to smooth out these wrinkles and get a younger, healthier appearance, then this injectable is the perfect solution for you.
Lines on the Forehead
Every time you lift your eyebrows, you may notice that horizontal lines appear as the skin creases. As you get older, you’ll likely find that those lines become permanent and rather deep.
You can use this injectable to help get rid of those horizontal lines on your forehead. This will provide you with a more relaxed, happier appearance and will help you look younger overall.
Lines Around the Mouth
Your mouth moves around a lot throughout the day. As you speak, eat, and make facial expressions, the skin in this area creases. Over time, these creases deepen and become permanent wrinkles.
Getting this injectable will help smooth the area out. Wrinkles around your mouth can make you look quite old, so getting rid of them will help you look considerably more youthful.
Everything You Should Know About Xeomin
If this sounds like it might be the right solution for your skin concerns, then you’re probably wondering what exactly it is. This injectable is made with botulinum toxin type A, which is the same main ingredient that Botox uses. Unlike Botox, however, this particular injectable does not contain additive proteins.
This makes it a fantastic option for candidates who are looking to target wrinkles and fine lines, but who have shown sensitivity to the proteins in Botox. Because it has no additives, it also means that your body is less likely to develop a resistance to it, like it might with Botox. This means you can continue using this filler for much longer.
How Does It Work?
The main ingredient in this injectable, botulinum toxin type A, acts as a neurotoxin. This can be a scary word to see, but rest assured that this filler is carefully formulated to be extremely safe. This filler is FDA-approved, and as long as you receive it from a qualified technician like those at our clinic, you can trust that your treatment process will be both safe and effective.
When the product is injected into your skin, it works as a neuromodulator. Your brain sends certain signals to your muscles, telling them to contract or tense. The botulinum toxin type A blocks these signals, which means that they are unable to reach your muscles. Instead of contracting, your muscles stay relaxed which in turn keeps the skin above them smooth and line-free.
What Is Treatment Like?
Are you thinking about receiving this treatment to fix your lines and wrinkles? At our clinic, you’ll receive your treatment in a clean and safe environment. You can also trust our highly-trained technicians to make sure that you get the results you want.
Before we can set you up with your appointment, we’ll need to sit down for a consultation. This consultation is an important part of the process because it gives us the chance to get to know you and your needs. We’ll talk about what your areas of concern are and how we can help you manage them.
Once the consultation is done, we can book an appointment for you. We’ll also provide you with specific instructions on how to prepare for your appointment.
Before you come in for your injections, you’ll need to prepare for your appointment. Make sure that you follow our instructions to ensure that your treatment is both safe and effective. Preparation for your treatment is simple and easy.
We will most likely ask that you just avoid a few things before your appointment. You’ll need to make sure that you’re not consuming anything that could act as a blood thinner. This will prevent bruising around the injection sites. Avoid taking medications like aspirin and ibuprofen during the week before your appointment. You’ll also need to stop drinking alcohol and smoking.
When the time comes for your appointment, we’ll do everything we can to help you feel as comfortable as possible throughout the entire process. The first thing we will do before we apply the injections is thoroughly and carefully clean the areas where the injections will be applied. Once your skin has been cleaned, we might also apply a topical numbing cream.
With your skin prepared for the injections, we’ll begin to apply the product. You will receive multiple strategic injections to help you get the results you’re looking for. Your appointment will be fast, with most treatment sessions lasting somewhere between 10 and 20 minutes.
Because this is a non-invasive treatment, recovery time is minimal. You’ll be able to leave our clinic as soon as your appointment is done, and you can get back to work immediately. There are just a few things you’ll need to do after your appointment to make sure that your results are effective.
Try to avoid exposure to direct sunlight, and stay upright as much as possible for the next few hours. You’ll also want to avoid strenuous physical activity. For the next few days, continue to avoid smoking and consuming any alcohol.
When Will I See Results?
Getting the results you want is important, but it’s also important to get those results quickly. Luckily, with this treatment, you’ll see an almost immediate change in your appearance.
Over the next week or so, your results will become even more apparent, and you’ll get to enjoy a smooth, young-looking appearance.
How Long Do Results Last?
No injectable treatment is permanent, but some injectables last longer than others.
You can expect your results to last for up to four months. Eventually, the botulinum toxin type A will be absorbed by your body, and your wrinkles and lines will begin to reappear. At this point, you’ll need to return to our clinic to receive a new round of injections and help you maintain your appearance.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
If you are unsatisfied with the way aging has made you look, then you might be a good candidate for this treatment. However, women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should avoid receiving any type of injectable.
As long as you are in good overall health and you have wrinkles you’d like to treat, this could be the solution for you. It’s also a great preventative measure, keeping wrinkles from appearing on your face in the first place.
