Xeomin in Los Angeles, Orange County and San Francisco
Over the years, smiling, frowning, and squinting leads to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your skin. Xeomin is a non-surgical injectable treatment like Botox that works to improve the appearance of the signs of aging caused by these repeated facial expressions. If you’re tired of seeing the signs of aging creep in every time you look in the mirror, you may be a good candidate for Xeomin in Los Angeles.
How Does Xeomin Work?
Xeomin is made with botulinum toxin type A, the same purified protein that is used in Botox. However, unlike Botox, Xeomin leaves out some of the other accompanying proteins. When Xeomin is injected into the skin, the botulinum toxin works to relax the underlying facial muscles to prevent them from contracting. By doing so, Xeomin is able to improve the appearance of existing frown lines and wrinkles between the eyes while also preventing new ones from appearing.
During your consultation, we will talk with you so we understand your expectations and the look you want to achieve. Because Xeomin is intended mainly for the improvement of frown lines, we may recommend supplementing your treatment with other injectables or fillers to achieve a more complete rejuvenation of your entire face.
How Long Will it Take to Recover from Xeomin?
There is typically no downtime associated with Xeomin. You should be able to get right back to work or your daily routine after a short, 20 minute treatment in the comfort of our own office. It really is as easy as squeezing in an appointment during your lunch break and looking years younger just a few days later.
It will take a few days for you to notice the lines and wrinkles begin to smooth away, and the maximum effect of your Xeomin treatment will be apparent after about a month. Most continue to see results for about three months before returning for further touch-up treatments.
