Are you looking for a convenient way to get rid of brow lines, crows feet, and other wrinkles? At Mariposa Aesthetics & Laser Center in Oklahoma City, OK, we recommend Xeomin to anyone who wants to see fast, effective results. This injectable treats wrinkles at their source by reducing the muscle activity that causes your skin to crease. It is one of the most popular ways to reduce the signs of aging. When you choose this treatment, you only need one treatment session to see your full results. Read on to find out more about how this injectable can help you smooth out your wrinkles.
One Treatment Session of Xeomin Offers Full Results
This treatment can improve your fine lines and wrinkles with only one, 30-minute session. Our patients love how little time it takes, especially compared to other methods. Many at-home remedies require daily application, and the results are usually mediocre. Even many of the more advanced treatments require a series of 4-12 sessions to deliver their greatest benefits. Not Xeomin. This treatment can help you get the smooth, wrinkle-free look you want after just one appointment.
The results of one session last between 3 and 4 months. Making them an ongoing part of your cosmetic routine is easy. Just schedule an appointment to renew your injections when you feel you need to refresh them. With only 3-4 sessions per year, you can benefit from their skin-smoothing effects all the time.
Other Frequently Asked Questions About Xeomin
What Are the Benefits of This Treatment?
With this treatment, you can smooth your skin, achieve a softer texture, and improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles. We find it to be especially effective against wrinkles in the upper face, including:
- Glabellar lines (frown lines)
- Crows Feet
- Horizontal brow lines
How Does This Treatment Work?
How can these injections have such a significant effect on the appearance of your wrinkles after just one session? The answer is in their ability to temporarily relax the muscles that cause facial creases. The active ingredient is botulinum toxin, a naturally-occurring substance that safely blocks your nerves from telling certain muscles to contract. As a result, your fine lines and wrinkles can fade away.
For many people, learning that muscle contractions cause facial wrinkles is a surprise. Creases develop in dynamic areas because your skin needs to fold to create facial expressions. Over time, the repetitive folding leaves lasting impressions. They start as fine lines and later deepen into wrinkles. When you come in for this treatment, we will identify the exact muscles that are causing your wrinkles. Then, we will use this treatment to improve the condition of your skin.
What Are Injectables?
This treatment falls into the injectable category, which includes dermal fillers and botulinum toxin products. Injectables provide a revolutionary approach to skincare that has been used for about twenty years. They treat your wrinkles under the epidermis, where they can promote the best healing. Unlike surgery, they do not require any intense measures. However, they still outperform almost all topical creams. In short, they offer the best of both worlds: excellent results without highly invasive procedures.
Does This Treatment Yield Natural-Looking Results?
After this treatment, you will look just like yourself minus 5-10 years. You don’t need to worry about getting a frozen brow because these injections leave plenty of room for mobility. They only affect the specific movements that cause wrinkles, and they reduce muscular activity as opposed to completely eliminating it.
To ensure natural-looking results, it’s important to choose a knowledgeable provider. At our practice, we have a wealth of experience in administering this treatment. We perform the injections with a keen aesthetic sense and a deep understanding of facial anatomy. Our patients love how this treatment yields excellent results with a subtle technique.
Can I Use This Treatment to Help Prevent Wrinkles?
When botulinum toxin first became available for cosmetic use, it was most popular among patients in their 40s. At that time, it was only used on existing wrinkles. Today, we understand that by reducing muscle activity, we can actually help stop the creases before they start. When your skin doesn’t fold, it doesn’t wrinkle. The ability of this treatment to work as a preventative measure is making it very popular among younger people. Nowadays, many patients start this treatment when they see their first fine lines or even before.
How Many Units Will I Need?
This treatment is measured and priced in units. The correct amount varies from patient to patient, and we can determine the right dosage for you when you come in for a consultation.
The kinds of wrinkles you choose to treat affect the amount you need. Generally, glabellar lines (frown lines between your eyebrows) take 20 units. For crow’s feet, you might only need 5-15 units. Forehead lines affect people very differently in terms of their number and their severity, so the units needed to treat them range from 10 to 40.
Can I Get the Same Results From Topical Creams?
Probably not. In fact, many people choose this treatment because they are tired of at-home remedies that don’t make a big difference in the way they look. Topical creams and cleansers are important because they keep your skin looking healthy. However, they don’t have much of an impact on fine lines and wrinkles. When you apply a product to the surface of your skin, your body can’t absorb many of the active ingredients deeply enough to get the benefits. Secondly, many creams contain a very small amount of the substances that are supposed to work.
Botulinum toxin beats over-the-counter products because it addresses the cause of your wrinkles right at their source. After your treatment, you won’t find yourself standing in front of a mirror trying to determine whether or not it worked. The results will be clear and visible.
How Long Does It Take to See Results?
After your treatment, you will start seeing your skin improve within about 7 days. Your results will continue to become more visible until you achieve your maximum benefits after two weeks.
Is This Treatment Safe?
This FDA-approved treatment has been used around the world since 2005. Tens of thousands of patients have chosen it as a safe, effective way to treat their wrinkles. Over and over, it proves to be an excellent option that has virtually no chance of creating lasting side effects.
Is There Any Down Time?
This treatment is very mild, and you can resume your normal activities immediately after your session is finished. We recommend that you do not vigorously rub your face or engage in strenuous exercise for 24 hours following your injections. This will ensure that the product stays in the targeted muscles.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
Almost anyone who wants to do something about their fine lines and wrinkles can benefit from this treatment. It is popular among both men and women. At our practice, we treat patients in their 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, and 60s. It is totally safe for all generally healthy people, and it works well in all skin types.
What Is the Best Age to Start This Treatment?
There is no right answer to this question. The best age for you will depend on your preferences. People usually start to see fine lines appear in their late 20s or early 30s. At this age, our natural production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid begins to decline, leaving our skin more prone to creasing. Many patients begin this treatment when they start to see the same lines appear day after day.
Other people start in their 40s. At this time, the treatment can lessen the appearance of existing wrinkles while also helping to prevent the formation of new ones. Your 50s and 60s are an equally good time to start getting these injections. It’s never too late to enjoy the benefits of smoother skin. Since this treatment can make a difference in mild to moderate wrinkles, people from many different age groups can enjoy the results.
How Is This Different From Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers and Xeomin are similar because they are both injectables that treat fine lines and wrinkles. However, dermal fillers work in a very different way. They replace your natural youth-maintaining substances and use a gel that physically plumps out your wrinkles. Some deliver hyaluronic acid, while others focus on collagen. Unlike botulinum toxins, they do not reduce the muscle activity that causes creases. Both botulinum toxin and dermal fillers are both highly effective ways to rejuvenate your skin. Some people choose to do both in combination.
How Is This Different From Botox?
These two injectables are very similar products. They are essentially just different brands in the same market. The one you choose will just depend on your personal preference. Both contain botulinum toxin A as the main ingredient, and both address fine lines and wrinkles by reducing muscle activity. Botox is a little better-known because it has been around for longer. There is also a slight molecular difference. Botox is comprised of
onabotulinumtoxinA while Xeomin uses incobotulinumtoxinA. In either case, the dosage is about the same.
The most significant difference between these two brands is that Botox contains some proteins that protect each molecule. This treatment, on the other hand, delivers pure botulinum toxin A. Some patients have been known to develop antibodies to the proteins in Botox. As a result, they see the effectiveness of the injections decrease over time. In their case, this treatment is a good alternative. The body cannot become resistant to it because it lacks the proteins that trigger our immune system’s response.
Enjoy Smooth Skin With Just One Session of Xeomin
Xeomin has many benefits, including the fact that it delivers full results after just one session. With this treatment, you don’t need to schedule multiple appointments to get the look you want. You will notice remarkably smoother skin and fewer wrinkles after just one session. Plus, you will love the results. This treatment is safe and highly effective. It is popular among people in their 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, and 60s. Everyone loves the convenience of getting smooth skin with no downtime.
