What Is the Best Age for Getting XEOMIN?
With board-certified dermatologist and dermatopathologist Dr. Ife J. Rodney at the helm, Eternal Dermatology + Aesthetics in Fulton, MD excels at providing cutting-edge treatments, including XEOMIN. We often receive queries from patients regarding the optimal age for starting XEOMIN treatments.
What Is the Best Age for Getting XEOMIN?
XEOMIN is an FDA-approved injectable used to treat moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows, also known as glabellar lines. It works by blocking the nerve signals to the muscles responsible for these wrinkles, causing them to relax and thus softening the appearance of these lines. It is similar to BOTOX in some ways, though the two products are not identical.
So, what is the best age to start treatments? The answer isn’t a simple, one-size-fits-all number. It depends on individual factors, including your skin type, genetics, lifestyle, and personal aesthetic goals. Some people may start noticing fine lines in their late 20s or early 30s and choose to start preventative XEOMIN treatments then. Others may not feel the need for treatment until their 40s or 50s, when wrinkles are more established.
Age and Wrinkle Formation
The formation of wrinkles is a normal part of aging. As we age, our skin loses collagen and elastin, substances that give our skin its youthful, plump appearance. This loss, along with repetitive facial expressions, leads to the formation of lines and wrinkles. This treatment can effectively soften existing wrinkles, leading to a more refreshed, youthful appearance.
Prevention over Correction
This product isn’t solely reserved for those who already have noticeable wrinkles. Starting treatments before deep-set wrinkles have formed can help prevent their formation in the first place. By relaxing the facial muscles that cause expression lines, we can stop these lines from becoming etched into our skin over time. As such, this treatment offers something for everyone, regardless of their age.
An individualized approach is always best, and an informed decision is a powerful decision. When contemplating when to start treatments, it’s vital to have access to all the necessary information. This includes understanding the safety and efficacy of XEOMIN and the expected results. At Eternal Dermatology + Aesthetics, we prioritize patient education, ensuring you have all the information you need to make an informed decision about your treatment.
Consultation with Dr. Rodney
The best way to determine the right age for you to start treatments is through a personal consultation with Dr. Ife J. Rodney. With her vast experience and deep understanding of the nuances of aging skin, Dr. Rodney can assess your skin’s current state, listen to your concerns and aesthetic goals, and advise on the best course of treatment for you.
The Safety Profile
This treatment has been extensively studied and has a proven safety record. Side effects are generally mild and temporary, often related to the injection itself, such as slight bruising or swelling at the injection site. Allergic reactions to treatment are rare. As a highly experienced injector, Dr. Rodney uses precise techniques to minimize potential side effects and maximize your comfort during the procedure.
Getting Optimal Results
As we’ve established, the decision of when to start XEOMIN treatments depends on various factors, from your aesthetic goals to your skin condition. But, no matter when you start, the goal is always to achieve optimal results. Regular treatments with this product are typically necessary to maintain results over time. The exact treatment frequency will depend on your individual needs and will be discussed during your consultation with Dr. Rodney.
While the effects of XEOMIN are temporary, there are steps you can take to maximize and extend your results.
Follow all Instructions
Firstly, it’s crucial to follow Dr. Rodney’s post-treatment instructions. This may include avoiding strenuous physical activity, heat exposure, and lying down for a few hours after your treatment.
Take Care of Your Skin
Skincare also plays a vital role in extending your results. Regular cleansing, moisturizing, and the application of a high-quality sunscreen can help maintain the health of your skin and prolong the youthful appearance this treatment provides. We can advise you on the best skincare products to use based on your skin type and needs.
Follow a Healthy Lifestyle
In addition to these steps, a healthy lifestyle can contribute to longer-lasting results. This includes maintaining a balanced diet, regular exercise, adequate hydration, and adequate sleep. Not only do these factors contribute to overall health, but they also help keep your skin in optimal condition, thereby extending the benefits of your treatment.
With the right preparation and aftercare, plus a healthy lifestyle, you can get the most out of your treatments and enjoy the benefits for longer.
