After years of smiling, squinting, or frowning often, deep lines can form across the forehead or around the eyes. These dynamic wrinkles can make you look old or angry all the time, and you may decide to get rid of them, because they don’t reflect the real feelings you have on the inside. Xeomin is a temporary solution for these telltale lines and wrinkles.
Xeomin is FDA approved for the treatment of frown lines, crow’s feet, and wrinkles across the forehead. It is manufactured by Merz Pharmaceuticals, and is made from the same active ingredient, botulinum toxin type A, from which botox and dysport are derived.
Get rid of frown and worry lines with Xeomin
Xeomin is a muscle relaxer. It inhibits the normal nerve impulses responsible for activating the muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles such as frown and worry lines. This allows the muscles to relax, causing deep forehead furrows to diminish over time.
Xeomin is often referred to as the botox alternative, as it is formulated from the same ingredient and has a similar action. However, Xeomin is a purer version, because it does not contain any additives, and the possible advantage is that it is less likely to cause an allergic reaction.
Xeomin is injected into the targeted muscles where it works to improve the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. The procedure takes about 15 minutes to complete, and there is minimal discomfort and downtime. Patients can therefore get back to regular activities right away.
Results with Xeomin
It typically takes 2 to 3 days before some results with Xeomin are seen, but the full improvements can take up to 10 days. The effects of Xeomin last for 4-6 months, therefore follow-up treatments are necessary in order to maintain the results.
