As we age, our skin naturally loses some of its elasticity, and our repeated expressions create impressions of permanence. Xeomin, as administrated by True MD can help to reduce the appearance of these lines and wrinkles to restore youthful skin.
HOW IT WORKS
Botulinum toxin type A—the active ingredient in Xeomin®— works from the inside out, preventing the nerve endings in muscles from contracting as it gently smoothes lines and wrinkles. Xeomin® works by targeting the specific nerve endings in the muscles that cause wrinkles. Pinpointing the nerve endings instead of the muscles themselves allows Xeomin® to temporarily eliminate the cause of wrinkles.
Through these reductions of muscle contraction, Xeomin® temporarily blurs visible lines and improves the appearance of skin. Xeomin® injections only target commonly treated areas such as “frown lines” between and above the eyebrows, and “crows’ feet” at the corners of the eyes, leaving all other facial muscles untouched so that you can make facial expressions just as you always have. The beauty of this treatment is that it makes the skin look naturally smooth and youthful, with very minimal to no downtime.
The treatment usually takes about ten to twenty minutes. During the treatment, one of our highly trained skin rejuvenation specialists will inject a very small amount of Xeomin® into the specific facial muscles that cause wrinkles. The painless procedure does not require anesthesia. If desired, your specialist can use a topical anesthetic or cold pack to reduce any discomfort. Depending on the condition being treated, the injections may be administered into more than one area at a time.
Results of your Xeomin® treatment will be gradually visible over a period of one month. Some patients observe visible smoothing in as early as three to four days after treatment. The results of the treatment typically last up to three months. To prevent any side effects, it is important to allow 90 days before undergoing another treatment of Xeomin®.
