When you look at yourself in the mirror, are you frustrated by the appearance of fine lines? Do you find yourself worrying about how your natural facial expressions impact your appearance? Many people develop frown lines over time, which are small lines that form between the eyebrows. While it may feel like a surgical procedure is your only option, Xeomin is an injectable treatment that can be used to relax and smooth the appearance of frown lines. Learn more during a consultation with us at the Kagan Institute at either of our locations in the Los Angeles, CA area.
What is Xeomin?
Xeomin® is an FDA-approved injectable neuromodulator. The formula blocks nerve signals from reaching their final destinations – the muscles in the treatment area. If the muscles are unable to receive instructions from nerve signals, they are unable to contract. This naturally promotes a smoother appearance, preventing the creation or worsening of frown lines.
Is Xeomin a Replacement for Botox?
Xeomin can be used as an alternative injectable treatment to Botox. Both of these injectables utilize the same active ingredients and act in similar ways. There are no additives in Xeomin — just the active, purified neurotoxin — and it is only for the treatment of glabellar lines (frown lines).
What Are the Benefits of Xeomin?
- Relax Severe Frown Lines: Your face will look refreshed after treatment. The lines between and near your eyebrows may become more relaxed.
- Prevent Lines: Injections can be administered preventively to keep your face looking smooth and young.
- Quick Treatment: These injectable treatments are very quick, and there is no set downtime. You should be able to get right back to your daily activities!
When Will I See Results?
Individual Xeomin results will vary. Patients usually notice a difference within a few days of their treatment. Results should gradually improve over time. To maintain your results, a series of treatments may be recommended.
Who is a Good Candidate?
Patients looking to remove severe frown lines should consider Xeomin. It may be ideal for people wishing to reduce signs of age in their face and restore youth to their skin. However, it is important to keep in mind this injectable treatment can only be used for dynamic frown lines, meaning it can only be used for lines created by natural facial expressions. A consultation with our professionals in the Los Angeles areas can help you determine if this injectable is right for you.
