Did you know that squinting, frowning, and other facial expressions could cause premature signs of aging in your face? These small, but daily muscle movements can cause your muscles to contract beneath the skin resulting in deep frown lines. Sometimes, these fine lines and wrinkles along your brows can make you look angry, stressed, and even uncomfortable. Xeomin is a proven treatment that can help you go from looking stressed to a softer, more youthful you.
What is Xeomin?
Xeomin is an FDA-approved, non-invasive treatment that temporarily blocks nerves within your muscles to reduce the appearance of frown lines. Also known as incobotulinumtoxinA, Xeomin targets muscles to loosen the contracted muscles. When treated by a properly certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Salzman, Xeomin can treat your moderate to severe frown lines for natural looking results.
How does Xeomin work?
Xeomin is a neurotoxin injection that blocks the release of chemicals that allow your muscles to contract, causing your frown lines to soften. If your fibers are temporarily disallowed from contracting, lines can disappear between your brows in just moments. During your 10-20-minute treatment, Dr. Salzman will inject Xeomin into specific spots on your forehead. The treatment will feel like a slight pinch, but to avoid potential discomfort, a topical anesthetic or numbing cream can be discussed during your consultation.
Results of your treatment can be seen within a short week after your injection and typically lasts up to three months. With Xeomin, you will find more natural-looking results than other treatments of today. So, if you are concerned with looking different or overdone post-treatment, a consultation with Dr. Salzman can help ease your worries and make you feel more comfortable by reviewing all options to treat your frown lines. Schedule your consultation today to see if Xeomin is right for you!
