Xeomin and other 'Neuromodulators' are used to make moderate to severe frown lines, crow's feet, and forehead lines look better in adults.
The effect generally lasts between 4-6 months.
And the reason is you. Xeomin® is a smart toxin with a double-filtered formula that removes unnecessary proteins, so you get only what’s needed for smoother frown lines, treatment after treatment.
FDA APPROVED. CLINICALLY PROVEN.
Frown lines form when facial expressions are made as the muscle under the skin contracts. Over time, as your skin ages, these repeated expressions cause lasting frown lines. Neurotoxins, such as Xeomin®, are prescription medications that block the release of chemicals that cause these muscle contractions so frown lines are softened.
How long should Xeomin last?
The treatment results can last between three and six months. The longevity of the effects is similar to that of other treatments like Botox. After three months, a patient may consider coming back for another session to touch up areas as needed.
Is Xeomin as effective as Botox?
Xeomin and Botox Cosmetic appear to be similarly effective options for smoothing out frown lines. In a study that compared the two as treatments for moderate-to-severe frown lines over a 4 month period, Xeomin was found to be just as effective as Botox Cosmetic but costing a little less.
What are the Benefits of Neurotoxins?
Neurotoxins are a great option for patients seeking to treat fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and forehead. Concerns that are commonly addressed with neurotoxins include glabellar lines, frown or "scowl" lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines. This is because they offer the following benefits:
- Treatment takes only a few minutes
- Results are visible within days
- No downtime or recovery period
- Minimally-invasive treatment with no scarring
- Results last 4-6 months
How Much Do Neurotoxins Cost?
The cost of neurotoxins can vary depending on the product used and the number of injections needed to satisfy a patient’s cosmetic goals. Dr. Boden encourages patients to come in for a cosmetic consultation so that we can discuss their goals and develop a personalized treatment plan. Then, we are able to provide the exact costs associated with neurotoxin injectables.
What is the Neurotoxin Injection Treatment Like?
The neurotoxin treatment takes only a few minutes to perform. To perform treatment, the neurotoxin formula will be injected into and around the areas where wrinkles exist. Most patients feel only a small pinch upon injection. Once the injections have been performed, the treatment is complete.
Do Neurotoxin Injections Have Side Effects?
Neurotoxin injectables typically cause minor swelling, bruising and redness in the treatment area. Fortunately, these side effects are quick to subdue, usually lasting just a few days. This means that patients are able to return to work and other activities immediately after treatment, although some may choose to limit social activities while the skin returns to normal.
What Do Neurotoxin Injection Results Look Like?
The results from neurotoxin injections can take a few days to become noticeable. It can take up to one week for the neurotoxin to fully take effect in the body, so don’t be alarmed if you don’t notice immediate results. As the results become visible, patients will notice a smoother, more relaxed appearance in the face.
