When you squint or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing the skin to furrow and fold. These lines that occur due to facial mimics are referred to as dynamic lines. Over time, as your skin ages and loses some of its elasticity, these repeated contractions can cause persistent, deep frown lines.
XEOMIN® is a prescription injection offered by Associates in Plastic Surgery that temporarily improves the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar frown lines between the eyes in adults as young as 24.
How Does it Work?
Botulinum toxin type A – the active ingredient in XEOMIN® – is used to treat dynamic lines like glabellar frown lines. It acts on nerve endings in muscles to prevent muscle fibers from contracting. By reducing these contractions, XEOMIN® can temporarily reduce the frown lines on your forehead between your eyes.
How do I know if XEOMIN® is right for me?
If you are an adult with moderate to severe glabellar lines (frown lines between the eyes), XEOMIN® may be right for you. Talk to your doctor at Associates in Plastic Surgery to discuss the benefits of this treatment.
Do not take XEOMIN® if you are allergic to botulinum toxin or any of the other active ingredients in XEOMIN®. You should also not take XEOMIN® if you have had an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin product or have a skin infection at the planned injection site.
What can I expect during treatment?
During treatment, which usually takes about 10-20 minutes, your doctor will inject XEOMIN® into the muscles in your forehead that causes these frown lines between your brows. No anesthesia is required; however, your physician may use a topical anesthetic or cold pack to reduce any discomfort.
When can I expect to see results?
Some patients observed visible smoothing as early as 3-4 days after injection, others within a week. XEOMIN lasts up to 3 months. Contact us today for more information on XEOMIN.
