What Are the Benefits of Xeomin?

XEOMIN is a highly purified neurotoxin used to smooth wrinkles and reduce muscle activity that causes lines and folds. It’s effective, safe, and a powerful weapon in the fight against aging. At Eternal Dermatology + Aesthetics in Fulton, MD, we can help you learn how all the benefits of this treatment can be put to work for you. Let’s explore.

What Are the Benefits of Xeomin?

Targeted Wrinkle Reduction

This treatment is exceptionally effective at targeting and reducing the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, which are lines that form from repeated muscle movements like frowning or squinting.

By inhibiting the signals from nerves to muscles, this treatment relaxes the targeted muscles, resulting in smoother, less wrinkled skin. This makes it an excellent choice for treating areas such as frown lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet around the eyes, and forehead lines.

Highly Purified Formulation

XEOMIN stands out from other neurotoxins because of its highly purified formulation. Unlike BOTOX or DYSPORT which contain additional proteins, this treatment is uniquely purified to contain only the active ingredient – botulinum toxin type A.

This reduces the risk of the body developing resistance to the treatment, which can potentially enhance its effectiveness over time.

Quick Treatment with No Downtime

Treatments are quick and straightforward, usually taking less than 30 minutes, depending on the areas being treated. It’s a non-surgical treatment, meaning there’s no downtime – you can get back to your daily activities right after your appointment. The convenience makes this treatment an attractive option for those with busy lifestyles.

Gradual, Natural-Looking Results

This treatment provides gradual, natural-looking results. Improvements generally begin to appear within a few days after treatment and continue to progress over the next week or two. This gradual transformation ensures your results look natural – not like you’ve had “work done.”

Long-Lasting Effects

The effects of this treatment are long-lasting, typically ranging from three to six months. Regular treatments can help maintain these results, and over time, they may even last longer as the treated muscles “learn” to stay relaxed.

Effective for a Range of Conditions

While this treatment is celebrated for its aesthetic applications, it also serves a therapeutic purpose. It has been effectively used in managing conditions such as uncontrolled blinking, cervical dystonia (a painful condition where your neck muscles contract involuntarily causing your head to twist or turn), and even excessive sweating.

Personalized Treatments

This treatment allows for highly personalized treatments. Based on your unique facial anatomy, skin condition, and aesthetic goals, the injection sites and doses can be precisely adjusted. This ensures that your results enhance your natural features while addressing your specific concerns.

Preparing for Treatment

During your consultation with Dr. Rodney, be sure to disclose your complete medical history, including any medications or supplements you’re taking. Avoiding certain medications and supplements that can increase bruising and swelling, like aspirin, ibuprofen, or fish oil, is advisable in the week leading up to your treatment.

Extending Your Results

Extending your results involves maintaining a consistent treatment schedule, as recommended by your dermatologist, and taking good care of your skin. This includes cleansing, moisturizing, and protecting your skin from the sun with a high-quality sunscreen.

Comparing to Other Treatments

XEOMIN, BOTOX, and DYSPORT all use the same active ingredient, but XEOMIN’s highly purified formulation sets it apart. Its unique formulation reduces the risk of developing resistance, making it a viable choice for long-term use.

Safety and Effectiveness

This treatment is FDA-approved and has undergone rigorous testing and trials to ensure its safety and effectiveness. When administered by a trained professional like Dr. Rodney, it is a safe treatment for reducing the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, and it produces results that look natural. The key is working with a skilled injector who has an understanding of facial anatomy and the training and experience to effectively administer your treatment.
