Discover the Benefits of Xeomin: What It Can Do for You

Millions of people turn to cosmetic injectables each year in the United States, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Injectables can help you manage fine lines and wrinkles, allowing you to achieve a smoother and more youthful-looking you. You may have heard of Botox, but do you know you have other options, like Xeomin? 

What is Xeomin? What is Xeomin used for? At AMG Aesthetics, we can answer all of the questions you have about this type of injectable. 

What Is Xeomin? Understanding How Injectables Work

Xeomin is the latest neurotoxin ready to help you diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Like Botox, Xeomin injections interrupt the signals your brain sends to your muscles at the injection site, telling them to contract. Temporarily stopping these contractions can give your face a smoother look with fewer dynamic wrinkles.

What are dynamic wrinkles? These wrinkles form when you frown or smile or make any other kind of expression. They form because, as you age, your body slows down the production of two essential proteins: elastin and collagen. 

Elastin and collagen keep your skin flexible and hydrated, allowing it to bounce back into place when you move your muscles. When you reach your 30s, and these two proteins are not as readily available, your skin has a harder time staying as flexible. This leads to fine lines and then wrinkles. 

What is Xeomin used for? It has FDA approval for the treatment of glabellar lines or frown lines. It may also be used for the treatment of:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Smile lines
  • Cheek lines

Xeomin treatment can be a great option for adults 18 and over who are in good health. If you have muscle problems or skin conditions like eczema, this type of injectable may not be the best choice. 

Xeomin vs. Botox: How to Choose the Right Treatment 

Xeomin and Botox are both made from the botulinum toxin, but there are crucial differences that might make one better for your needs than the other. When you’re considering Xeomin vs. Botox, think about how they’re made. 

Despite having the same toxin as their base, Xeomin offers a purer version. Botox has additives and contains a mixture of proteins that Xeomin does not have. This has earned Xeomin the nickname “the naked injectable.” 

Xeomin injections can also offer longer-lasting results than Botox. You can enjoy Xeomin results for as long as six months, while Botox injections typically last between three and four months. 

You can also see faster results with Xeomin. While with Botox, you would have to wait about two weeks to see the full outcome of the injections, you only need to wait three to five days with Xeomin. 

Top Benefits of Xeomin and Other Cosmetic Injectables 

Cosmetic injectables offer results without requiring that you go through a long treatment process. There is no real downtime, and the procedure is so quick you can get it during your lunch break. Because Xeomin has no added proteins, you are getting fewer additives. 

Like other similar injectables, Xeomin can teach your muscles to be softer, making it a good option for younger people. By beginning a regimen of Xeomin when you are in your 20s, you can prevent many wrinkles from forming. 

Xeomin Injections: What Is the Consultation Like?

To ensure that you are a good candidate for this procedure, we always schedule a brief consultation. We can get a sense of the results you want to achieve, as well as what your skincare routine is, whether you take any medications, and whether you are in good health. 

We will also offer some tips to help you get ready for the procedure. Although there isn’t much you have to do to prepare, we recommend that you stop drinking alcohol at least two days before the injections and avoid blood-thinning medications and supplements. It is also a good idea to stay out of the sun so that your skin is not extra sensitive.

What to Expect From Xeomin Injections

When you come to our location for the injections, don’t wear makeup, creams, or lotions. After cleaning the treatment areas, we will begin the injections. How many you receive will depend on the size of the area and your goals. The process takes just a few minutes, and you can get back to your day quickly. 

During the first few hours, avoid touching the treatment area to avoid dislodging the Xeomin. Don’t put pressure on the area, and don’t lie down for at least four hours. You also want to avoid strenuous exercise for four to six hours to give the Xeomin time to settle. For the next few days, avoid abrasive skin care products. 

Within three to five days, you can start seeing results. You want to also remember to always wear sunscreen when you go outside since this can help you maintain the results for longer. 

Manage Wrinkles with Xeomin Injections

If wrinkles and fine lines are a source of stress, one of the most effective treatment options you can turn to is Xeomin. Xeomin injections help relax the muscles that cause some of the wrinkles to form, leading to smoother skin. At AMG Aesthetics in Tucson, AZ, we offer a variety of cosmetic injectables to help you achieve your aesthetic goals. You can always get the quality services you need and the personalized care you deserve.

Trying the stem wave today. Have had issues with my back over 25yrs. I have actually been thru surgery in 2014. It did help me not to end up an involed, but I still suffer with pain. I'm hoping this helps with pain, so I can hopefully get off medication. I'm hoping for less downtime in my life and a more enjoyable life! 😉

Dr. B and Dr. G are constantly exploring new technologies and therapies to provide their patients with state-of-the-art procedures to address everything from aesthetic treatments to pain management. The staff is wonderful and welcoming and it’s evident that they care deeply about their patients’ wellbeing. I underwent StemWave therapy in the office and felt an immediate improvement in my shoulder and knee pain. What I love about AMG and am most impressed with is that they are constantly ahead of the curve in regenerative medicine as an alternative to traditional invasive procedures. At AMG you are treated as part of the family.
