Tired of looking older than you are? Do you want to turn back the hands of time on your appearance? Are you interested in non-surgical ways of reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles? Look no further than the Bay Area Laser Cosmetic Surgery Center, where Dr. Armen Serebrakian can assist new and established patients with achieving their skincare goals with cosmetic injectables such as Xeomin.
What is Xeomin?
Xeomin is a neuromodulator similar to more commonly known injections such as Botox. Unlike dermal fillers, which use a hyaluronic acid gel to add volume to wrinkles and folds, Xeomin works by reducing the contraction of muscles of the face that contribute to the formation of dynamic folds. Facial creases, lines, and wrinkles can be addressed quickly and easily in this manner without requiring surgery. Xeomin is completely safe and is formulated with a protein that is derived from botulinum bacteria. An injection of this protein will keep chemical messages from getting to the muscles of the face, smoothing the skin of the face for several months before reinjection is needed.
Why choose Xeomin over plastic surgery?
The skin naturally starts losing its collagen around the time an individual hits the age of 30. Collagen loss contributes to skin laxity, which in turn causes wrinkles and folds to develop. To combat this, Xeomin and other cosmetic injectables can be used to restore one’s appearance to a more youthful look. Many dynamic wrinkles, including crow’s feet, forehead folds, and creases between the eyebrows, are reversed with injections. Facelifts are not appropriate for those with mild imperfections, as injectables can be used until the condition develops further. More severe cases of skin laxity is better suited for plastic surgery, where this extra skin can be removed and the remaining skin tightened to reduce the signs of aging.
