The Many Benefits of Xeomin
You’ve likely heard of Botox before, but have you heard of Xeomin? Like Botox, Xeomin uses botulinum toxin type A injections to reduce and prevent aging symptoms. In addition, those with other nervous disorders are using Xeomin as part of their treatment plan.
What makes Xeomin unique? While it contains the same neurotoxin as Botox, many experts say it uses a “naked” form of the toxin, which means it doesn’t contain Botox’s protein additives.
Do you want to learn more about Xeomin? Here are the benefits of Xeomin, how you can try it, and how to choose the best medical spa in your area.
What Is Xeomin?
First things first, let’s describe Xeomin. Xeomin is the brand name of incobotulibumtoxinA, originally developed by Merz Pharmaceuticals in 2010. It was originally created to reduce drug antigenicity for patients with benign blepharospasm, which is a progressive neurological disorder. The secret is its highly purified formula, where the creators removed the extra proteins. This is why it’s nicknamed the naked form of the botulinum toxin.
Xeomin is still used as a treatment for those with muscle spasms and other neurological conditions. But the FDA approved Xeomin for cosmetic use in 2011. Since then, it’s been Hollywood’s best-kept anti-aging secret.
Benefits of Xeomin
Are you unsure if Xeomin is right for you? Here are some of the benefits you’ll experience from this treatment.
It can take up to two weeks to see the results of Botox. However, it can take as short as four days to see the full effects of Xeomin. There are ways that you can expedite the effects even faster. After treatment, try and remain upright for the next few hours. Refrain from strenuous exercise, including swimming and yoga.
Alternative to Botox and Dysport
Xeomin is becoming a popular alternative to Botox since it doesn’t contain protein additives. But what about Dysport, the other popular neuromodulation treatment? If you have built up a resistance to Botox and Dysport, Xeomin is a good alternative since it’s a naked form of the neurotoxin. Plus, Xeomin is a good Dysport alternative for those who have a milk protein allergy.
Remember, you can also build up a Xeomin resistance. Talk to your surgeon about the best Xeomin treatment method to prevent resistance.
Xeomin treatments are painless. That’s because Xeomin is a minimally invasive treatment—most patients don’t even need local or general anesthetics. Your surgeon will only use small needles to administer the neurotoxin. If you’re still concerned about discomfort, ask your surgeon about using a topical anesthetic or ice.
Previously, Xeomin was Hollywood’s best-hidden secret. Today, Xeomin is more widely available and available in med spas all across the country. The treatment is also more convenient than Botox and other neuromodulators. Sessions last between 10 and 20 minutes on average, and most patients can go back to work after their treatment.
Prevents Aging Symptoms
While Xeomin is popular among the 40-50-year-old crowd, many users are as young as their 30s. That’s because Xeomin is a great aging preventative. The secret is collagen. Collagen is a protein that plays a role in the structure of skin, bones, cartilage, and connective tissue. When your body produces enough collagen, your skin will feel lifted, tight, and smooth.
Over time, your body doesn’t produce enough collagen. Getting Xeomin treatments at a younger age will prevent that from happening. Remember that you will need to get follow-up treatments to experience the best results.
Won’t Freeze Your Facial Expressions
One of the common drawbacks of neurotoxins like Botox is they freeze your facial expressions. While Xeomin will relax your facial features, it won’t completely freeze them. Xeomin is made without any additives, so it won’t paralyze your entire face. Your surgeon will also strategically place the injections in specific areas. You may feel tightness in these regions, but it won’t extend across the entire face.
Fewer Side Effects
Fortunately, Xeomin comes with few side effects. Minor side effects, such as discomfort and slight bruising or swelling at the injection site, can occur after your Xeomin treatment. Overall, Xeomin is safe for anyone who is in good health, isn’t pregnant or nursing, and who doesn’t have a history of neutoxin allergies.
Can Be Used Nearly Anywhere on Your Face
Everyone ages differently, and you’ll want injections that can work with your unique face. Fortunately, Xeomin is a versatile treatment and can be used in various muscles of the face.
On the upper face, patients request Xeomin between the brows to prevent frown lines, fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, smooth out the look of dimples, other forehead lines, crow’s feet, smoker’s lines, and can tighten the skin around the chin and jawline.
The effects of Xeomin can last as long as six months, though most experience the benefits between 3-4 months. Still, this means you’ll look younger for several months! In order to get rid of wrinkles and reap the most benefits, you should get injections regularly.
What to Expect During Your Treatment
Did you decide that Xeomin is right for you? Before going for this beauty treatment, you should know what to expect. You’ll be happy to know that this is a non-invasive treatment and appointments take an average of 10 minutes (though may take longer, depending on the number of injections you’re getting).
If requested, the surgeon will start my numbing the injection sites. When the surgeon starts the injections, you may feel a slight pinch, but the treatment is virtually painless.
While you should keep your head upright and avoid exercising, you can go back to your daily routine without any downtime.
