What Is XEOMIN?
Even though you could smile, laugh, and make other facial expressions without any lasting effects when you were younger, you've probably started to notice that facial lines created by those expressions now remain, even after relaxing your face. Known as dynamic wrinkles, these happen because the facial muscles stay contracted and form etched lines in the overlying skin. XEOMIN is an injectable wrinkle relaxer that, much like BOTOX, temporarily relaxes the facial muscles. Made from a strain of purified botulinum toxin, it helps your wrinkles appear softer and smoother. At Renuvia Medical Center in New Port Richey, FL, we provide a range of cosmetic and skin care procedures, including XEOMIN wrinkle relaxing treatments. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Arthur Schlyer for more information about XEOMIN.
XEOMIN can help if you want to decrease the appearance of dynamic wrinkles on your face, like frown lines, forehead lines, Crow's feet, or smile and laugh lines. Ideal candidates for XEOMIN are in good overall health, not pregnant, and have never experienced an allergic reaction to other types of botulinum toxin products, including BOTOX and Dysport. Please inform Dr. Schlyer during your consultation of your current medications, cosmetic goals, and medical history so that he can customize a unique XEOMIN treatment plan that specifically addresses your needs.
Our Injection Technique
During the same day as your consultation, we can perform XEOMIN injections in under 30 minutes in one of our private procedure rooms. Before we begin your XEOMIN treatment, we will sterilize your face and then gently inject the formula into your skin using a specialized needle. The treatment is fast and doesn't generally cause much discomfort. However, if needed, we can discuss providing a local anesthetic. Before you leave, we'll apply pressure and cold compresses to the injection sites to prevent minor bleeding.
What to Expect
After your XEOMIN injections, you may resume your daily activities. However, you should avoid exercise and other strenuous activities until the following day. You should sleep with your head elevated and use cold compresses periodically to expedite healing and results. In the days following a XEOMIN injection, you may experience bruising, swelling, or redness near the injection sites, but this should subside in a few days. Additionally, you can easily conceal these side effects with makeup. Many patients will see visible improvements 3 – 4 days following their XEOMIN treatment, and those improvements should last for three months. To maintain your results, we can help you schedule follow-up treatments at Renuvia Medical Center.
Smooth and Relaxed
Age comes with some thrilling gifts, including wisdom and experience, but it sometimes brings along some undesired changes like lines and wrinkles throughout the face, too. Relax and smooth dynamic wrinkles on your face with XEOMIN injectable wrinkle relaxer treatments at Renuvia Medical Center in New Port Richey, FL. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Arthur Schlyer to create your specialized XEOMIN treatment plan.
