Using Xeomin® injections to restore a youthful appearance
- Posted on: Nov 15 2022
If you are looking for a way to turn back the hands of time, you may want to consider Xeomin® injections. With Xeomin® injections, patients can avoid the need for plastic surgery, such as facelifts, to smooth away the fine lines and wrinkles throughout the face. Dr. Daniel S. Tresley is a board-certified ophthalmologist in the Northbrook, IL, area who can assist with cosmetic injections to provide noticeable results and lasting changes to one’s facial appearance.
What is Xeomin®?
Dr. Daniel S. Tresley describes Xeomin® as a type of injectable wrinkle treatment that helps smooth out the appearance of unwanted fine lines and wrinkles. It works by paralyzing the muscles temporarily that cause wrinkles, giving your skin a smoother, more youthful appearance.
What can I expect with Xeomin® injections?
Xeomin® injections are most commonly used to treat frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead wrinkles. The results of Xeomin® injections typically last for anywhere between three to six months before touch-ups are needed. There is no downtime associated with this particular procedure, so you can resume your regular activities immediately after your treatment.
What are the risks of Xeomin® injections?
Dr. Daniel S. Tresley talks to patients in the area who are considering Xeomin® to help them understand the risks that are associated with these cosmetic services. Some of the potential risks of Xeomin® injections include bruising, redness, pain, and swelling at the injection site. These side effects are typically mild and temporary.
How does Xeomin® compare to Botox injections?
Botox is another neuromodulator that is similar in formulation to Xeomin®. However, Xeomin® is known to provide faster results and last longer. Because of this, some patients may find that Xeomin® works better for them than Botox.
