Xeomin® (pronounced ‘ZEE-oh-min’) is a second-generation botulinum toxin and has been used successfully in other countries since 2005. The Elements are also using this purified version and have found it to be a great alternate to Botox®.
Xeomin® is designed to treat lines and wrinkles and when injected skilfully can produce very natural results still allowing expressive facial movement.
Facial wrinkle treatments performed at The Elements using Xeomin® involve temporarily relaxing select facial muscles, limiting their ability to fully contract and effectively smoothing and reducing the appearance of frown lines. This involves the injections (using a tiny micro needle) of a minuscule amount of incobotulinumtoxinA, which is an FDA approved botulinum toxin type A. Xeomin® wrinkle treatment works by temporarily relaxing select facial muscles, limiting their ability to fully contract. After these injections, all untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion, allowing normal facial expression to remain unaffected.
Following a treatment, normal activities can resume immediately as long as you remain in an upright position and avoid any facial massages. The results of the Xeomin® injections are not instant. Improvement is gradual and usually begins within 2 to 3 days, with the final result achieved in about a week. In most cases, the treated wrinkles will relax and soften, producing a younger, well-rested appearance. Although the improvement varies with each person, the result may last 3 to 4 months or longer.
In the hands of our experienced Appearance Medicine Nurse Tori Wells, you will be happy with the natural looking results, seeing improvement in the lines of the face, from a gentle softening to complete disappearance depending on your desired look.
We've all heard the rumor circulating that, when injected enough times with Botox, your body has the ability to become immune to the toxin, rendering its muscle-freezing abilities useless. When your go-to treatment has started to lose its magic touch, rest assured that you have another option in Xeomin. READ MORE HERE>>
