Frown lines, also known as glabellar lines or “11s,” can make you appear older than you are and may make you seem upset or angry when you’re not. Injectables such as Xeomin® are excellent ways to combat this sign of aging to give you a rejuvenated appearance without needing invasive surgery. At Luxe Plastic Surgery, we offer a variety of injectables to restore a youthful look.
If you’re interested in Xeomin® or another injectable, contact our board-certified plastic surgeon in Houston today at (281) 313-0551. Luxe Plastic Surgery offers surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures to patients in nearby areas including Katy and Sugar Land, Texas.
How Does Xeomin® Work?
Xeomin® is a neuromodulator injectable that’s similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport®. This cosmetic treatment uses botulinum toxin to temporarily block the muscle activity between the brows to reduce moderate to severe frown lines. Xeomin® can also address specific medical conditions, such as severe spasms and muscle stiffness. This neurotoxin is FDA-approved and clinically proven to treat frown lines. Xeomin® is a “naked” injectable in that the product doesn’t include additives and proteins like other neuromodulators.
Frown lines form because of repeated facial expressions and movements in the glabella region between your eyebrows and forehead. Xeomin® treatment typically involves local anesthetic or topical numbing cream to reduce any discomfort you may experience. The injectable is then artfully applied to the treated area, and the entire procedure takes around 30 minutes or less. You may feel some stinging, burning, or pinching, which will dissipate quickly.
Dr. Kutty, or one of our experienced staff members, will explain the Xeomin® procedure and process during your consultation.
Xeomin® may also treat forehead creases or lines and crow’s feet.
Results from Xeomin® for Facial Signs of Aging
Many men and women who choose Xeomin® will start to notice their results a few days following the injectable treatment. It takes time for the associated muscles to relax and smoothen the skin. Full Xeomin® results should settle in within ten days, eliminating those pesky frown lines and revealing a rejuvenated, softer facial appearance. Your Xeomin® outcome can last up to four months, and repeat treatments will help you keep your youthful look.
You should not use Xeomin® if you’re under the age of 18, are allergic to any Xeomin® ingredients, or have an active skin infection in the treatment area. Pregnant women, breastfeeding mothers, and those with certain medical conditions should avoid Xeomin® also.
Dr. Kutty can help you determine if Xeomin® or another injectable such as Juvéderm® or Restylane® dermal fillers can best accomplish your cosmetic goals for your face.
