Contending with the constant changes brought about by aging can be difficult. Sometimes, it seems like everything is changing, and most often it seems like your skin is taking the brunt of that change. When over-the-counter products have failed, it’s time to look for different anti-aging treatments. Before you schedule your next visit at Invogue Rejuvenation & Body Sculpting Center in El Paso, TX, learn about Xeomin, our newest anti-aging treatment!
How Long Does It Take to See Results From Xeomin?
For many patients, the speed of results from any treatment is a high priority – the faster they can look younger and feel renewed, the better. With newer treatments such as this one, it’s only natural that patients want to know how quickly they can see results. The answer is this: it only takes 5 to 10 days to see results from Xeomin.
Compared to many other cosmetic treatments, both dermal injectables and more high-tech anti-aging solutions, this treatment works very quickly. Many other treatments require two or more weeks to see results after an appointment, but with this treatment, you can see results in less than a week. The speed at which you will notice results will depend on certain factors, such as your age and the severity of your skin condition, but the majority of patients see results within a few days of treatment.
How Long Do Results Last?
On average, results from this treatment last for about six months, as that is when the solution is fully absorbed into the body. The longevity of the treatment is unique to injectables, as most other dermal filler treatments last only three to four months at a time. The longevity of this treatment may depend on some circumstances, such as how quickly your body metabolizes the solution, however, most patients do enjoy a full six months of results after a single treatment.
How Many Treatments Will You Need?
It is sometimes the case for dermal fillers that multiple consecutive treatment sessions are necessary to produce the desired results. For this treatment, it is adequate to have a single treatment appointment once every 6 months. This means that you can maintain your desired results with as little as two appointments a year, which saves you time and money.
How Xeomin Works
This treatment is a dermal injectable, which means that it is a minimally invasive treatment that requires the use of a thin needle to inject the solution into the skin. Like other dermal injections, this treatment works by injecting the solution into a handful of targeted treatment areas. The solution in this treatment is a neurotoxin, which means it is able to relax muscle tissue. The treatment can be completed within 15 to 30 minutes.
Neurotoxin injections are those designed to inhibit the contraction of muscles in the face, which produces a more relaxed and youthful appearance. Scientifically, the solution of this injection is made with a highly purified neurotoxin. It is chemically similar to the solution that is found in other neurotoxins, such as:
Botox is perhaps the most famous neurotoxin injection used in cosmetic treatments. Botox has a reputation as being a versatile, long-lasting treatment for moderate to severe facial wrinkles. However, the solution in Botox is incredibly potent and can sometimes create stiff-looking results in patients. This is why Botox is reserved for reducing the appearance of the most severe wrinkles and is used only in small quantities in targeted areas.
Dysport entered the public market within the last 10 years, meaning it is not as well known as Botox. However, Dysport has gained a reputation for producing a more natural-looking result because of how easily the solution spreads beneath the skin once injected. Dysport has been an ideal option for patients with mild-to-moderate skin concerns, and particularly fine lines on the forehead and around the mouth.
Why Is Xeomin Better?
The disadvantage of both of other neurotoxins lie in the nature of their chemical properties. Both Botox and Dysport are made with an accessory protein that delivers the neurotoxin to the skin, and unfortunately that means that it is possible for the body to build up an immunity to the injections over time. Patients who regularly use Botox or Dysport switch between the two in order to avoid building an immunity, but this is really just delaying the inevitable.
Fortunately, Xeomin is different. Unlike Botox and Dysport, this particular neurotoxin treatment is made with a pure solution that does not have an accessory protein, which means that the body cannot build an immunity to it over time. The absence of an accessory protein also means that the injectable solution is lighter in weight, which is why it can spread more evenly beneath the skin.
What It Treats
What does this purified neurotoxin treat? This injection is actually a diverse cosmetic treatment and is appropriate for mild, moderate, and severe skin concerns. Wrinkles, which are caused by a combination of bunched facial muscles and skin laxity caused by aging, can be smoothed out with this neurotoxin injection. This treatment is commonly used to treat fine lines and wrinkles on many areas of the face, including the:
- Between eyebrows
- Expression lines, such as crow’s feet and laugh lines
- Corners of the mouth
- Nasolabial folds around nose and mouth
Because the solution of this treatment is thin and spreads evenly beneath the surface of skin, it can treat many tricky areas of the face, including areas where the skin is thin and sensitive. During your consultation, we will discuss all areas of treatment that are best suited to your personal needs.
Benefits of Xeomin
By now, it’s obvious that there are many benefits to this treatment. This injectable is made from a pure, refined neurotoxin, it is impossible to build an immunity to it, and you can see the results very quickly. Other benefits of this treatment include:
Its Anti-Aging Effects
The fact that this is an anti-aging treatment is an invaluable benefit. For many patients, finding an anti-aging treatment that works well for their specific needs can be challenging. This is an anti-aging treatment that can be used for virtually any patient, regardless of whether their age-related concerns are mild, moderate, or severe. Additionally, this is an anti-aging treatment that can be used as a preventative treatment and as a treatment for age-related concerns that are already present.
Its Natural Results
Sometimes, dermal injections do not produce natural-looking results. This is especially true for neurotoxins such as Botox. However, this is a treatment that produces a natural-looking result, which can be attributed to the unique composition of the injectable solution. This treatment spreads evenly once injected, meaning it relaxes facial muscles subtly to produce a more youthful appearance that still allows patients a full range of facial movements to emote.
The Long-Lasting Effects
We said it before, but it bears repeating. The results from one treatment can last for six months at a time. This is a benefit that is rare among any kind of non-surgical cosmetic treatment, including energy-based treatments. The longevity of this treatment is often an appealing factor for many patients who are considering this neurotoxin injection.
Its Safety and Effectiveness
This treatment has been newly cleared by the FDA, which means it has passed strict standards and has been deemed safe for public use. In particular, this treatment has been involved in two large-scale clinical trials to prove the efficacy of the product. The rigor of these clinical trials have found that this treatment is safe and effective, even for extended, regular use. The clinical trials have also determined that this injection can be an effective treatment for both cosmetic and medical concerns.
This is a versatile treatment. Some dermal injections, both neurotoxin and fillers alike, can be limited to only treat certain areas of the face. Botox, for example, is most commonly used on areas that develop severe wrinkles, such as the forehead and between the eyebrows, and most dermal injections cannot be used around the delicate eye area. However, this treatment can be used on every area of the face without any issues or negative side effects, making it the most versatile injectable treatment available.
It’s Combination Powers
Many patients take into account how easily a new cosmetic treatment can be combined with other treatments. This is a treatment that is easily combined with a number of other cosmetic treatments. For example, this treatment can be combined with a dermal filler to replace volume loss in the hollows of cheeks.
This injection can also be combined with cosmetic treatments for superficial skin concerns, such as dark spots, scarring, sun damage, uneven skin tone, and uneven skin texture. We can help you decide the treatments that can be combined with this injection, including facials, peels, lasers, radiofrequency, microdermabrasion, and dermaplaning. We will help you create a treatment timeline for all of the treatments you are interested in to reach your ideal appearance goals.
Its Medical Uses
As with Botox and Dysport, this is a neurotoxin injection that can have medical uses. Botox and Dysport are commonly used to treat chronic migraines. This injection, on the other hand, is cleared for medical use for the treatment of muscle spasms in the neck (cervical dystonia) and muscle spasms in the eyelids (blepharospasm). If you are interested in using this injection for medical uses, we can help you find a qualified physician and technician.
Are You a Good Candidate?
Most prospective patients are good candidates for this treatment. This injection is considered safer than other dermal injections, such as Botox, and has many benefits that are appealing to patients. Anyone who is in good health and does not have an allergy to the active ingredient in the injection is likely a candidate for this treatment. You may be a good candidate if you want to:
- Restore a youthful appearance
- Relax facial wrinkles
- Reduce the appearance of fine lines
- Correct expression lines
- Improve the appearance of deep wrinkles
- Treat delicate or sensitive skin
Candidates for this treatment include those who want to treat moderate or severe wrinkles and those who want to be proactive in their anti-aging treatments. During your consultation, we will help you determine your goals and expectations for treatment, as well as help you decide if this treatment will help you achieve your ideal appearance goals.
