At CJM Aesthetics in Bay Village, OH, we are happy to announce the addition of this product to our menu of products. Read on for more about how it works, how long it lasts, what treatment is like, and more.
How Long Does Xeomin Last?
The results of this treatment are sure to delight you, so you might be wondering how long they will last. The good news is that they will last basically as long as you want them to with maintenance injections.
You should see for at least three to four months after one individual treatment. People report that their longevities are up to six months in many cases! The results can be maintained as long as you like since you can repeat the treatment as soon as they diminish. We now have a convenient, effective way to get and maintain smoother skin with today’s advances in skincare.
What Is Xeomin?
With this treatment, fine lines and wrinkles between your eyebrows can be reduced with strategically placed injections. This product contains an anti-aging neurotoxin called botulinum toxin, which alters the nerve signals to your face, preventing creases from forming.
It is a wonderful option for everyone who wants to reduce the appearance of unwanted lines quickly and painlessly. Another benefit is that it is among the most popular and safest cosmetic treatments. Many people have had the treatment, giving us lots of first-hand evidence of how effective and safe it is.
The Benefits of This Treatment
Why are neurotoxins so popular among people who want to reduce fine lines and wrinkles? The following reasons will convince you why you should try this treatment:
Results Are Fast and Real
Unlike creams that take months to see results, you’ll notice improvements in fine lines in a few days. The skin will continue to become smoother and smoother after injecting the product, providing even better results over the two weeks until the product has reached its full efficacy. Considering the benefits of this treatment, it can be a great way to prepare for a wedding, the holiday season, or any other life event for which you want to look your best.
It Addresses the Root Cause of Wrinkles
This is a very simple and straightforward issue. Many over-the-counter products make outlandish promises that ultimately leave you wondering if they actually worked. You are left standing in front of the mirror, wondering if you are really seeing a difference or just your imagination.
What’s the point of using topical products that don’t address the causes of wrinkles? With this treatment, you will definitely notice a difference in the texture of your skin and you will enjoy the more youthful appearance it brings!
It Saves You Money
We spend a lot of time and money trying products that don’t work. The instructions for many creams say that maximum results can be achieved only by using it consistently for six weeks. For a product you do not even know you like, that’s a long time to invest.
Furthermore, high-quality serums can range from $25 to $400 a pop. Time and money can be saved with Xeomin. Whenever you book an appointment, you’ll notice a real difference right away.
Making an appointment and getting treatment is simple and straightforward. Since the injections are very quick, it is likely that you will only spend about half an hour in total, including the time it takes to register and settle in. Additionally, no surgical preparation, invasion, or recovery period is required. With the exception of heavy exercise on the first day after the injections, you can return to all the elements of your normal routine right away.
It Keeps You Looking Natural
One important aspect of this treatment that people love is just how discrete it is in terms of its effects. A very delicate technique is used to perform the injections so that the only muscles that are being targeted are those that cause your fine lines and wrinkles. When you leave the office after having your injections, you will still have a beautiful, dynamic face that can make perfectly natural movements. There will be very few people that can tell that you have even had the treatment, though everyone will notice that you look younger and more refreshed.
It Can Treat Those Nasty Frown Lines
This particular treatment is mainly used for the lines on your brows that are right between your eyes. In Dermatology, the term “glabellar” refers to the skin on the forehead that is especially susceptible to wrinkles as we age. The wrinkles that are caused by glabellar liness are sometimes called ‘frown lines’, and this is a condition that many people seek treatment for.
How Does This Treatment Work?
Taking good care of your skin with moisturizers and taking a good look after it will go a long way in contributing to a smoother, more youthful-looking skin. By using neurotoxins, you can go one step further, though, because they will inhibit the contractions of the muscles that cause wrinkles in the first place. As a result of contracting the muscles in your face, the skin around the area where you use the muscles creases.
Eventually, these creases become lines and wrinkles. By softening the muscles that cause wrinkles, this treatment puts a stop to the process. All skin types can benefit from the treatment, even if the skin has been exposed to the sun or you have worn makeup for many years. Depending on your starting point, there are many factors that cause the skin to change faster or slower over time, but wherever you are on the timeline of skin aging, this treatment can produce a noticeable improvement.
FAQs About Treatment
Is This Product Safe?
Since it received full FDA approval in 2005, this product has been very popular, as it has been proven to be extremely safe. It should also be noted that similar products, such as Botox, have been available since the 1990s and are also renowned for being safe and effective treatments. These treatments have all proven their worth over an extended period of time.
How Is This Different From Botox?
Honestly, the products are almost identical. While both are neurotoxins that reduce wrinkles, they are made by different companies and use a different protein. OnabotulinumtoxinA is used in Botox, and incobotulinumtoxinA is used in Xeomin.
Practically speaking, the only benefit of the different protein in Xeomin is that your body will be less likely to develop a resistance to it. A resistance simply means that injections may become less effective as you continue to get them. Those few people who do experience this can choose Xeomin. Some people also see the best benefits by switching from one treatment to the other.
Will the Treatment Hurt?
You don’t have to worry! Most people report that this treatment is very comfortable and does not cause any discomfort whatsoever. A quick 15 minutes is usually enough for the injections to be completed. We use an ultrafine needle for the injections and there are usually only five injection sites. In addition, we apply a numbing agent before we get started with the treatment.
Will Xeomin Work With Other Parts of My Skincare Routine?
In short, yes! You can combine this treatment very well with what you already use at home. The treatment works well in conjunction with other treatments, too, such as dermal fillers, facials, and other med spa services. There is one more advantage to using neurotoxins such as this one. While other anti-aging options can help to keep your skin healthy and help you treat fine lines, neurotoxins work to prevent those fine lines from developing at all.
How Old Should I Be To Start?
In terms of age, there really isn’t a perfect one! Our patients range in age from their 20s, 30s, and 40s to those in their 50s and 60s. It is always advisable to take action as soon as you begin to see the same lines day after day. By addressing wrinkles early, you can prevent them from forming. But if they’re already there, this treatment will smooth them out.
