Xeomin® in Tampa Bay
Xeomin® is an injectable treatment comparable to Botox® and Dysport®, but it may offer better results depending on your treatment needs. Eyelid Surgeons of Tampa Bay offers this and other injectable treatments to men and women of St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Tampa, FL and the many others who travel to us for Dr. Mohadjer’s expert services.
What is Xeomin®?
Xeomin® is an injectable treatment that is used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles by relaxing facial muscles. The Xeomin® formula, like Botox® and Dysport®, is composed of botulinum toxin. The main difference with Xeomin® is that it is a purified version of botulinum toxin, and has no added ingredients. This means that Xeomin® may be able to produce better results if you have developed a tolerance to similar injectables.
The Xeomin® formula can relax facial muscles by blocking nerve signals that make them contract. As these muscles relax, facial wrinkles fade. We may recommend Xeomin® for the following wrinkles:
- Frown lines
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead lines
Am I A Good Candidate for Xeomin®?
If you suffer from any of the wrinkles listed above, you may be a good candidate for Xeomin® treatments. However, the best way to determine if you are a suitable candidate for Xeomin® is to schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Mohadjer.
During your consultation, you and Dr. Mohadjer will discuss your cosmetic goals in order to determine if Xeomin® is a good fit for you. At this point, we will be able to help you schedule your treatment or find a suitable alternative.
What is the Xeomin® Treatment Like?
The areas to be injected are first cleansed, then the Xeomin® formula will be injected into the desired treatment area. The number and exact location of these injections will depend on your treatment goals. However, the injection process takes only a few minutes, so the Xeomin® treatment is often completed in less than 30 minutes.
What is the Xeomin® Recovery Process Like?
Xeomin®, like most injectable treatments, requires practically no downtime or recovery period. Immediately after your treatment, you may experience some redness, bruising, or swelling in the treatment area. These effects will fade within a few days of treatment. Despite these effects, you’ll be able to return to your normal activities within a day of treatment.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Xeomin®?
The results from Xeomin® will become visible in the weeks following treatment. It takes a few days for the Xeomin® formula to take effect in the body, so you may not begin seeing results until a few days after your treatment. Then, you’ll notice a gradual reduction in facial wrinkles as the treated muscles become relaxed.
The results from Xeomin® typically last about three to four months. After this point, patients may choose to receive additional Xeomin® injections in order to prolong the results of treatment.
