Sometimes fine lines and wrinkles can appear as part of the natural aging process. Other times, it can feel as though their presence is well ahead of schedule. In either case, Xeomin® is a highly effective wrinkle relaxer, enabling you to address mild to moderate signs of facial aging without surgery of any kind.
How Does Xeomin Work?
Xeomin works to effectively smooth over lines and wrinkles on the face by directly interacting with the muscles that cause them. This specific type of wrinkle is known as a “dynamic wrinkle” and is caused by the repeated use of your facial muscles. Over time, as you speak and make facial expressions, the muscle contractions cause the formation of lines and wrinkles in the skin.
When injected into the treatment area, Xeomin works to relax the underlying muscles in your face, smoothing over wrinkles that have developed on the overlying skin as a result. This stops the development of new lines and wrinkles while also effectively walking back the presence of those that may have already appeared. The entire process is quick and easy.
An experienced member of the Dream Spa Medical staff will carefully inject Xeomin into the treatment area using a fine-gauge needle. Most patients find this procedure to be surprisingly tolerable, and we’ll help you stay comfortable with a topical numbing cream if needed. The process takes about 15 to 30 minutes, and your only “recovery” will be some temporary redness and tenderness in the treatment area.
