Pesky frown lines and other facial wrinkles can often be a disservice to your confidence level. But you don’t have to just accept them as irreversible parts of the aging process. Neurotoxin injections have served as the standard for years in helping people turn back the clock and regain a more youthful appearance. Xeomin® stands in a class of its own as a uniquely purified neurotoxin that’s FDA-approved to effectively treat glabellar lines and other facial wrinkles. We’re proud to offer this amazing treatment at all our Project Glammers locations.
How does Xeomin work?
Constant facial expressions, like frowning or scowling, eventually cause the skin between your eyebrows to crease and form lasting wrinkles, which can even be present as early as your 20s. Xeomin (incobotulinumtoxinA) is a uniquely purified neurotoxin that effectively smooths these lines by blocking the specific muscle contractions that cause them to form. Xeomin is injected directly into the targeted muscle where it goes to work to temporarily stop the wrinkle-causing contractions, resulting in a smoothing of the area that can last around three months.
How is Xeomin uniquely purified?
The manufacturing process of Xeomin involves a unique scientific method that isolates the therapeutic component of the molecule. What that does is remove any accessory proteins that don’t serve an active role in treatment. To put it simply, you get what you need without the things you don’t.*
*Studies have not been conducted as of yet to determine whether the presence or absence of these unnecessary proteins has long-term effects on safety or efficacy.
Am I a candidate for treatment with Xeomin?
Generally healthy adults who are concerned with moderate to severe glabellar lines may be good candidates for treatment with Xeomin. In our experience, the majority of Xeomin users are people in their 40s and 50s, but younger patients in their 20s and 30s are even choosing this neurotoxin to prevent wrinkles before they ever form. You should not use Xeomin if you’ve had an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin product or have a skin infection at the proposed injection site. Our knowledgeable staff will go over all details of this treatment to help you decide if Xeomin is best for you.
Is Xeomin only used to treat frown lines between the eyebrows?
Though Xeomin is FDA-approved specifically for treating glabellar lines, it can also provide skin-smoothing benefits in the following areas:
- Crow’s feet
- Wrinkles on the forehead
- Lines on and around the nose
- Chin dimpling
- Smoker’s lines around the mouth
- Neck bands
- Marionette lines
- And so much more
Our experienced injectors, led by master injector and Project Glammers founder Dr. Irene Gladstein, will evaluate your specific areas of concern and work with you to develop the best treatment plan.
Is there any downtime needed after Xeomin injections?
There is no need for any downtime after you receive Xeomin injections, so you can expect to get right back to most of your regular activities once your treatment is complete. You’ll just need to avoid lying down for the first 4 hours and refrain from exercising for 24 hours as a precautionary measure to make sure the product doesn’t migrate from the injection site.
When will I see results from Xeomin injections?
Noticeable improvement in the treatment area is often experienced as early as three to four days following injections, but it could be more like 10-14 days for some people. In most cases, the optimal results of smoother skin take place in about 30 days after initial injections.
How long do results from Xeomin last?
Most patients enjoy the beautiful smoothing effect for about three months, though individual results may vary depending on your age and unique skin structure. Some Xeomin patients have reported results that last up to 6 months, but that’s generally not the norm.
