Looking your best is more of a challenge as you get older. As you age, some of the things that made you look attractive in your youth start to disappear. Your smooth and healthy skin can begin to transform into wrinkled skin. Some of the areas where most people see wrinkles are on their forehead and around the sides of their eyes. These wrinkles are referred to as dynamic wrinkles because they only appear when your face is in movement. With time, the dynamic wrinkles that appear and disappear with facial movements can actually start to crease your skin, becoming permanent lines and wrinkles. Fortunately, XEOMIN® is a powerful tool that can effectively address dynamic wrinkles.
XEOMIN® is in the same family of non-surgical cosmetic options as BOTOX®. Its purpose is to relax facial muscles, making it impossible for them to contract with the same forcefulness that they did prior to the treatment. As a result, you see a temporary reduction in wrinkles. XEOMIN® injections are very safe and simple to apply. They do not take long. In fact, most people can have the treatment performed in under an hour. XEOMIN® is designed specifically for individuals who have moderate to severe wrinkles and frown lines.
During the procedure, XEOMIN® is skillfully injected into the treatment site. The result is that the muscles in the treatment site begin to relax. The muscles cannot contract in same way as they did before treatment. This relaxing effect is then transmitted to the skin over the treated area.
XEOMIN® only affects the facial muscles that receive the injection. It’s important to know that the results from this injectable will not be seen immediately. Although the active ingredients start to work on your muscles right away, it will take days before you notice the full benefits from the procedure.
Depending on how severe your dynamic wrinkles are, XEOMIN® can produce some very noticeable results. It can give you dramatic results that make you look younger and that make you feel more attractive.
Over time, people can develop a resistance to products like BOTOX®. This is because BOTOX® has some protein additives that the body can begin to attack. XEOMIN® does not have these proteins, and so it can be used to treat the dynamic wrinkles in individuals who no longer get the results they used to get from using BOTOX® treatments.
If you’re battling with dynamic wrinkles, XEOMIN® may be the best option for you when it comes to treating them. There’s no reason to allow the aging process to rob you of your youthful appearance.
