As we age, fine lines and wrinkles that appear over time become more apparent.
With all of the research and treatments entering the medical aesthetic field, there's never been a better time to treat those pesky lines and reduce signs of aging.
But what's the best route to take in achieving your skincare goals?
Today's article will examine Xeomin, one of the newest injectables to hit the market. We'll cover how it works, the areas it treats, and the many benefits it provides over other options in its ability to diminish the appearance of crow's feet.
Let's get into it!
What is Xeomin?
Xeomin is an FDA-approved wrinkle relaxant formulated with Botulinum toxin type A that is injected into areas of concern. Xeomin works by temporarily relaxing facial muscles in the treated area, smoothing out existing wrinkles, and even preventing new ones from forming. As a result, the facial muscles are unable to contract fully, leading to a reduction in the visibility of crow's feet and other facial lines.
Dubbed as the “Naked Botox,” Xeomin" is similar to the mega-popular Botox, however, it does not contain any additive proteins, making it a more natural and “pure” version of the toxin.
Aside from treating tiny wrinkles found around the corners of the eyes (aka crow’s feet), Xeomin is used to target:
Forehead lines and frown lines
Masseter muscles (from pain from jaw clenching)
Nose lines and wrinkles aka “bunny lines”
Xeomin results have been shown to appear sooner and last longer than other toxins. In some cases, changes are noticeable within five days and last up to six months. Your results will vary based on how fast your body metabolizes the toxin.
The decision to choose Xeomin over other treatment options is one you will make with your provider, however, there are a few reasons it stands out from its competition.
A Pure Option - As mentioned previously, Xeomin does not contain the accessory proteins found in Botox and Dysport. This means there is less chance of an allergic reaction forming, making it a safer choice.
Antibody prevention: Since Botox has extra proteins, patients might develop antibodies against it, which can stop it from working as intended. Xeomin, on the other hand, is purified without those extra proteins, so there's no chance of forming those antibody reactions.
Non-Surgical - If you’re wanting to avoid going under the knife, but still see results, Xeomin is an effective option. Zero recovery, zero downtime
Treating “Lines in Motion” - While fillers are great for treating deep, static wrinkles, treatment with Xeomin is for those lines that move with your facial expressions.
An Affordable Option - Compared to surgery and even fillers, Xeomin is a more affordable treatment that still offers real results.
Medical Treatments - An added benefit of Xeomin is its ability to treat, off-label, some medical concerns including hyperhidrosis, chronic migraines, and muscle pain/spasm.
