Xeomin Injections in Houston, TX
HOW IT WORKS
What Is Xeomin?
Xeomin® is a neurotoxin injection treatment used to soften frown lines formed by muscular contractions associated with certain facial expressions. The FDA has approved Xeomin to treat muscular disorders such as cervical dystonia, which produces involuntary spasms of the neck muscles, and blepharospasm, which causes involuntary twitching of the eyelid and softens moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows in healthy adults.
How Does Xeomin Work?
Xeomin is a neurotoxin that reduces muscular contractions in areas where those contractions cause wrinkles by inhibiting the release of chemicals that trigger these muscle contractions, softening lines, and wrinkles as facial muscles become more relaxed. Xeomin is most often used cosmetically in the forehead region, specifically between the brows, to soften vertical and horizontal lines. Unlike dermal filler treatments that fill in wrinkles, Xeomin only affects muscle tissue. Therefore it has no direct capacity to fill in deep wrinkles that have already formed, although it will naturally soften wrinkles and lines over time. Xeomin may also be combined with other treatments or procedures to provide a more comprehensive improvement.
How Do I Know if I Am a Good Candidate for Xeomin?
If you have frown or worry lines in the forehead, vertical or horizontal forehead lines, crow’s feet, or laugh lines around your eyes, or a combination of all of these, Xeomin injections can make you look more relaxed, less tired, and less stressed. If you’ve tried Botox or Dysport and found that it didn’t work or didn’t last as long as expected, you may achieve better results with Xeomin. Xeomin is not recommended if you are pregnant, have an infection at the treatment site, or have a condition such as multiple sclerosis, myasthenia gravis, or Lambert-Eaton syndrome. If you have a history of any neurological condition or temporary paralysis or have experienced the loss of vision or double vision, you may not be a good candidate for Xeomin injections. Dr. Bachilo may recommend an alternate treatment.
How Long Do Xeomin Results Last?
As with Botox and Dysport, Xeomin injections typically produce results that last about 3 to 4 months. The length of time between treatments becomes longer with regular use, and some patients see results lasting as long as six months. Many patients who have also used other neurotoxins report that Xeomin begins to take effect more quickly than its alternatives, which may take anywhere from one to 10 days to deliver visible effects.
CAN XEOMIN BE COMBINED WITH OTHER TREATMENTS?
Yes, Xeomin is often combined with other cosmetic treatments. Many patients elect to combine treatments in one session to achieve the best possible aesthetic result while saving time and money.
IS XEOMIN THE SAME AS BOTOX AND DYSPORT?
While Xeomin is similar to Botox and Dysport, its chemistry is slightly different, providing a purer product that eliminates accessory proteins from the mix. As a result, the body may develop antibodies over time, reducing the efficacy of treatment. For this reason, Xeomin is an excellent alternative for patients who feel that their Botox and Dysport treatments are no longer working as they did in the past.
What to expect after XEOMIN injections?
After your XEOMIN injections, you can expect a small amount of swelling and redness at the injection site. These symptoms should dissipate within a few days at most. Your XEOMIN results will begin to be visible within about 72 hours.
How long do side effects of XEOMIN last?
Side effects from XEOMIN will often begin to subside within a few hours of treatment and should last no longer than a few days.
Is XEOMIN better than Botox?
XEOMIN and Botox are comparable overall, but XEOMIN tends to show results faster and last slightly longer. Choosing between the two is typically a matter of personal preference. Your injector can make a recommendation based on your unique goals.
How long does it take for XEOMIN to settle?
XEOMIN results are usually noticeable beginning at about 72 hours after injections, with final results visible in up to 30 days.
How often should you get XEOMIN?
Most patients repeat their XEOMIN injections every three to four months.
Can Xeomin be used for crow’s feet?
XEOMIN is an effective treatment option for crow’s feet and other dynamic wrinkles such as glabellar lines.
What areas can be treated by Xeomin?
XEOMIN is useful for wrinkles near the eyes and forehead, such as crow’s feet, glabellar lines, or horizontal forehead lines.
How many units of Xeomin do you need?
The average patient receives about 20 units of XEOMIN per treatment session. This varies depending on the severity or location of your wrinkles and fine lines as well as your goals for your results.
How do you know if Xeomin is working?
You should see reduced wrinkles and fine lines as a result of your XEOMIN injections.
Can you shower after Xeomin?
It is best to avoid showering for about six hours after your XEOMIN injections.
