Patients with frown lines, forehead folds, or crow’s feet around the eyes may realize how these imperfections on the skin can contribute to an aged appearance. To combat this, many patients will ask their doctor about cosmetic injectables that can be used to smooth these lines and restore a youthful look. Dr. Armen Serebrakian and his team at the Bay Area Laser Cosmetic Surgery Center provide nonsurgical solutions for the face, including injectables such as Xeomin.
Xeomin has been on the worldwide market since 2005, introduced in the United States in 2010 and providing results ever since. This particular injectable is a neuromodulator like other brands like Dysport and Botox. The medication is injected directly into facial muscles to reduce tension and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. This method of treating aging skin has been found to be extremely successful for men and women dealing with the early development of imperfections on the skin due to increased skin laxity.
How does Xeomin work?
Xeomin is formulated with an ingredient known as botulinum toxin type A. It blocks nerve responses to the muscles, allowing the patient to reduce muscle tension in the face that contributes to the development of fine lines and wrinkles. Just like other neuromodulators, Xeomin is best used on the upper third portion of the face where muscle tension can cause folds and lines. Many patients use these injectables for forehead folds, glabellar lines between the eyebrows, and lines around the eyes, commonly called crow’s feet.
Can Xeomin be combined with other treatments?
Absolutely! Dr. Armen Serebrakian may suggest combining Xeomin with other cosmetic injectables such as dermal fillers to address wrinkles and folds elsewhere on the face, essentially providing a liquid facelift. Using these treatments can delay the need for surgical interventions such as brow lifts and facelifts for many patients in their 30’s and 40’s with the early signs of aging.
