Your facial movements contribute to the development of wrinkles. From a frown to a smile, every facial movement leads to the formation of what is known as static wrinkles, wrinkles related to facial movements that can appear permanently imprinted on the facial structure. These wrinkles form because facial expressions put stress on the skin and create lines that appear deeper and deeper as time passes. Static wrinkles can be particularly upsetting because they can make individuals appear far older than they actually are, affecting their sense of self and how others may perceive them potentially. If you have static wrinkles, from deep forehead creases, frown lines at the corners of your mouth or crow’s feet by your eyes, there’s no need to worry. Xeomin can help.

Xeomin is a neuromodulator injectable that minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by disrupting nerve activity between facial muscles and the brain. The neuromodulator effectively alleviates signs of age related to static wrinkles.

What Is Xeomin?

Xeomin attains skin smoothening results by acting on nerve endings within the facial muscles. The neuromodulator temporarily blocks messages sent from the brain in order to keep muscle fibers from contracting. Relaxing these muscles smooths the skin’s surface, creating a more youthful image that makes you appear more alert and less concerned. Since Xeomin reduces muscle activity, the neuromodulator will also ensure that lines and wrinkles do not become more pronounced. While it isn’t a permanent solution, Xeomin produces exceptional long-lasting results that can help you delay undergoing cosmetic surgery. 

Xeomin is a particularly unique neuromodulator. The injectable results from many advancements in the manufacturing of neuromodulators and are considered a ‘naked’ neurotoxin. Xeomin contains a single ingredient, which is botulinum toxin Type A, compared to other neuromodulators, such as Botox and Dysport, which contain protective proteins around the active molecule. The fact that Xeomin is a pure neuromodulator means patients have a lower chance of developing resistance to its effects. Xeomin is an exceptional neuromodulator for patients who no longer experience the effects of other neuromodulators or for those who experience an allergic reaction to their protein casings. 

Who Is a Good Xeomin Candidate?

Xeomin is commonly utilized to improve the following cosmetic concerns related to facial movements:

  • Glabellar lines
  • Wrinkles around the eyes
  • Forehead lines and creases
  • A dimpled chin

Xeomin is an exceptional treatment for patients who struggle with static wrinkles. These wrinkles related to facial movements differ from dynamic wrinkles, resulting from the natural aging process. Dynamic wrinkles are best treated with dermal fillers, which are also offered at Broward ENT & Aesthetics. Dermal fillers and neuromodulators are often combined during an aesthetic treatment to attain comprehensive results. 

Some contraindications may keep you from having the Xeomin treatment. Contraindications include:

  • Muscular conditions
  • Respiratory problems
  • History of excessive bleeding
  • Problems swallowing
  • Currently pregnant or breastfeeding

Your concerns will be reviewed to ensure candidacy for the neuromodulator treatment during an initial consultation. Your medical history will also be reviewed. 

What Happens During a Xeomin Treatment?

A Xeomin treatment is relatively quick and takes approximately 10 to 20 minutes, depending on the number of treated areas. The treatment is referred to as a ‘lunchtime procedure’ because it can be performed during your lunch break at work. Before the injections are administered, your treatment sites will be cleaned and marked to ensure accuracy. The Xeomin will then be administered via a small needle into specific facial muscles. A Xeomin treatment consists of several injections into different parts of the face. Each injection takes just a few seconds. 

A Xeomin treatment is a generally tolerable experience. However, if you are concerned about discomfort, a topical anesthetic or ice pack can be applied to help mitigate any pain. A neuromodulator injection feels like a slight pinch at the injection site, followed by a tightening sensation. When your treatment is over, you will be able to leave the office immediately and resume your daily activities.

Xeomin Recovery

Xeomin is a safe treatment that has minor side effects. After your treatment, you may experience redness, swelling, bruising or irritation at the site of injection. Additional side effects may include a headache, muscle spasms or muscle weakness. All of these side effects tend to subside a few days after treatment. You may be asked to avoid strenuous activities because they could potentially affect your results.

Xeomin Results

Xeomin results are noticeable right away. Results will continue to improve five to seven days after treatment. However, final results typically take a week to appear as bruising, and swelling should completely subside by then. Your skin will appear smoother, and you will be able to appreciate a more youthful, alert and lively look. 

Xeomin results last for many months. The treatment typically produces results that last approximately three to six months. Best yet, you can maintain your new look by undergoing regular Xeomin treatment sessions. Patients usually receive a Xeomin injection every three to four months to maintain their youthful look.
