Glabellar lines are the vertical lines that appear between your eyebrows as a result of frowning, concentrating, or general aging. These lines can be noticeable and may give the appearance of a constantly furrowed brow. At Wise Aesthetics in Carmel, IN, we specialize in providing advanced, non-surgical treatments to address these concerns.
Xeomin is an FDA-approved injectable treatment designed to temporarily reduce the appearance of these glabellar lines. By targeting the muscles responsible for frown lines, Xeomin can give you a smoother, more relaxed look. We’re committed to offering treatments like Xeomin that can achieve beautiful results for our clients.
What Is Xeomin?
Xeomin is a type of neuromodulator that works by temporarily blocking nerve signals to the targeted muscles, thereby reducing muscle contractions. This mechanism of action allows for the smoothing of wrinkles, particularly in the glabellar region between the eyebrows. Unlike other neuromodulators, Xeomin is free from any added proteins, which minimizes the risk of developing resistance to the treatment. This FDA-approved treatment is just one of our array of non-surgical aesthetic solutions.
Xeomin vs. Botox and Other Neuromodulators
Both Xeomin and Botox are FDA-approved neuromodulators designed to smooth wrinkles by reducing muscle activity. Botox is well-established and versatile, used in a variety of treatments beyond cosmetics. Xeomin offers a more purified formula, potentially making it suitable for those who’ve developed resistance to other neuromodulators. We provide both options to best meet your individual needs.
What Is Xeomin Used For?
While it can be used for other applications, Xeomin treatments are primarily used for relaxing muscles in the glabella. During treatments, a series of five injections are typically given, two above each eyebrow in the muscle, and one between the brows.
How Can Xeomin Benefit You?
A Non-Surgical Alternative to Wrinkles
Xeomin injections offer a non-invasive way to reduce the appearance of glabellar lines. With this treatment, you can avoid the risks and longer recovery times associated with surgical procedures.
Fast and Convenient Treatments
One of the advantages of Xeomin is that the treatment sessions are quick, usually taking no more than 30 minutes. This makes it easy to fit into your schedule, offering a fast and effective solution for reducing wrinkles.
Get Back to Your Daily Routine
Xeomin has the benefit of requiring no downtime post-treatment. This means you can immediately resume your daily activities, making it a convenient choice for those who want a discreet treatment with limited downtime or visible indications that work has been done.
Customize Your Treatments
As a neuromodulator, Xeomin allows for a customized treatment plan. The dosage can be adjusted to suit your specific needs, ensuring that you get results that are tailored to you.
Receive Smooth and Authentic Results
One of the standout features of Xeomin is that it can provide a smoother, more relaxed look without altering your natural expressions. This gives you the benefit of appearing more youthful while still looking like yourself.
The Xeomin Treatment Process
Your treatment starts with an initial consultation where we discuss your aesthetic goals and evaluate whether Xeomin is the right choice for you. This step provides an opportunity for you to ask questions and for us to tailor the treatment to your specific needs.
Preparing for the Treatment
Prior to the treatment, we’ll clean the targeted area and may apply a topical anesthetic for increased comfort. It’s essential to discuss any medications you’re currently taking, as some can interact with Xeomin.
The Injection Process
During the treatment, Xeomin is carefully injected into the muscles that are contributing to your glabellar lines. The process is quick, usually taking no more than 30 minutes. Sometimes we may use topical anesthetic which can add a little time to the treatment.
Immediately after the treatment, you’re free to return to your daily activities. You may experience some minor redness or swelling, but this usually subsides within a day. Make sure to avoid touching your injection sites and use gentle products on your skin for several days after the treatment.
Individuals who are looking to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines between the eyebrows may find Xeomin to be a suitable option. It can be used for patients over 18 with most skin types and tones. However, it’s important to consult with us to determine if this treatment is right for you.
The effects of a Xeomin treatment typically last between three and four months. The duration can vary depending on several factors, including your skin type and the specific area treated.
You can generally expect to see noticeable improvements within three to seven days after the treatment. Full results are often visible about two weeks post-treatment.
While pain tolerance varies from person to person, Xeomin injections are generally well-tolerated. We often use a topical anesthetic to enhance your comfort during the treatment.
Xeomin is designed to temporarily reduce the appearance of existing wrinkles, particularly glabellar lines. While it can make the treated area look smoother for a period, it is not a permanent solution for preventing wrinkles.
