When most people think about treating dynamic wrinkles, they usually think of BOTOX®. While BOTOX® is an effective dynamic wrinkle treatment, there are other products on the market that work just as well or even better. One option that you may want to consider is XEOMIN®.
XEOMIN® is a treatment that was approved by the FDA in 2011 in order to be used for aesthetic purposes. It is especially effective at treating frown lines. XEOMIN® works in a similar way to BOTOX®. When it is injected into the facial muscles, it causes them to relax. This means that muscles that have been accustomed to staying contracted are able to relax, and then they do not cause those deep wrinkles in your face that make you look older.
Individuals are usually interested in products like XEOMIN® and BOTOX® when people constantly tell them that they look a certain way when they do not feel that way. For example, you may have a deep crease between your brows that causes you to look angry or dissatisfied. However, you may not feel that way at all. All you need is a couple of injections of XEOMIN® and the muscles between the brows will not stay contracted. Instead of having people tell you that you look upset all the time, people will notice that you look refreshed and younger.
Most individuals are able to see the skin on their face smoothing out after just a couple of days from the time they received the XEOMIN® treatment. The maximum effect will usually be able to be seen after about one month. Most individuals are able to enjoy the results from this treatment for up to three months. Each individual will have a different reaction to the treatment.
The best way for you to decide if this treatment is right for you is to schedule a consultation at our office. One of the very first things we will do is make sure that you are not allergic to any of the ingredients that are contained in the product. We will also closely examine your skin in order to be sure that it is free from infection and ready for treatment. We will ask about your medical history, making sure that you do not have any health issues that would disqualify you as a candidate for XEOMIN®.
When you come in for the actual treatment, you will only need about 30 minutes. The treatment is very quick, and you can return to all of your normal activities after the injections have been made.
XEOMIN® is a great BOTOX® alternative and offers a variety of benefits that are not seen with BOTOX®. During your consultation at Rejuvenate Med Spa in Oak Brook, we will help you to decide if you are a good candidate for this treatment. Contact us today to schedule your appointment.
