Xeomin is a very popular cosmetic injectable that is used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by minimizing muscle movement. Similar to Botox, it utilizes the botulinum toxin to reduce muscle movement. The chemical composition differs from Botox in that Botox contains additional proteins. Xeomin uses a purified version of the botulinum toxin without the use of those proteins.
How does Xeomin work?
Xeomin is made from the botulinum toxin, like Botox. Xeomin works by disrupting the signals sent between nerves and muscles, paralyzing the area of injection. The muscles are no longer able to contract, preventing the formation of wrinkles and lines in the area that has been injected. Reducing the muscle movement prevents the deepening of existing lines and prevents the formation of new lines and wrinkles.
What are the benefits of Xeomin?
Xeomin smoothes the look of wrinkles between the eyebrows, in the forehead, and around the eyes and mouth. It blocks the signals to muscles to limit muscle movement and allows the muscles to relax, preventing more wrinkles from forming. It works in a short time and has a fast recovery, with noticeable results happening within two weeks. It is also less likely to have allergic reactions that other fillers may have.
Xeomin is sometimes called “naked Botox” because of its lack of the additional proteins that are present in Botox. Without the added proteins Xeomin is showing that it does not lead to desensitization that can be found in other injectables. For some people, Xeomin has been showing that it works faster and lasts longer than Botox. This is something that you will want to discuss with the staff at Sirene MedSpa and Wellness.
How Should You Prepare For a Xeomin Treatment?
To prepare for a Xeomin treatment, do some research to understand if this is right for you. Contacting the staff at Sirene MedSpa and Wellness will help you find the answers to your questions. The qualified and trained staff will be able to help you understand what the benefits are and help you feel more comfortable with the procedure. They can help you determine what to have done to get the results that you are looking for. Try to have the injections done at least two weeks before any event or special occasion that you have coming up.
What should you expect during a Xeomin treatment?
The treatment is fairly straightforward and usually takes less than 10 minutes to be done. You will have the area treated with a numbing agent before the injection. There will probably be more than one injection taking place and will depend on how large the area is that is being treated. Once the injections are done, you should be able to go about your day as you normally would.
