It’s natural to see changes like wrinkles in your skin as you get older. But even though it’s normal, you may not like the way these changes make you look. At CAS Medispa in Bloomington, IN, we can help you get back to your younger appearance with our Xeomin injections.
How Quickly Do Xeomin Show Results?
Unhappy with the changes you’re seeing in your skin as you get older? If you’re looking for a way to reduce their appearance and keep your skin looking as young as possible, then you might want to consider an injectable treatment like Xeomin.
While you may not see an immediate change in the way you look after your appointment, after just 3 days you should start to notice a difference in your appearance. Over the course of the next week or two, your results will continue to improve. The fact that your results come on gradually helps them appear completely natural.
Why Is My Skin Changing?
In your youth, your skin appeared smooth and wrinkle-free. But, as you’ve gotten older, you may have found that the texture and appearance of your skin have drastically changed. Your face may look thinner and you might have noticed wrinkles. Why is that?
The chemicals in your skin that help it stay elastic and flexible, smoothing out after you make facial expressions, start to lessen the older you get. This is why you’re going to notice more and more wrinkles forming on your face. There are two different kinds of wrinkles you should know about.
These are the creases that appear in your skin when you contract the muscles underneath. For example, when you raise your brows, you may notice horizontal lines crossing your forehead. But, when you relax the muscles, these wrinkles disappear.
Over time, as your skin loses important chemicals like collagen that provide it with its elasticity, you may start to notice that your dynamic wrinkles stay on your face even when the muscles underneath are relaxed. This is when they become the second type of wrinkle.
These wrinkles stay on your face regardless of whether or not the muscles under your skin are contracting. It’s especially common to see them in areas of your face where you lose a lot of volume, as well as places like your chin and neck.
The more you lose elasticity in your skin and the more you make repeated facial movements, the more that your dynamic wrinkles will turn into static wrinkles, aging your appearance drastically.
What Is Xeomin?
This is an injectable that’s applied to your desired areas non-invasively by using a fine and precise needle. Its main ingredient, like that of Botox, is botulinum toxin type A. When this injectable is applied to your areas of concern, it works as a neuromodulator.
Your brain sends signals to your muscles telling them to contract. This is in part what causes wrinkles to form on your face. When this injectable is applied, it blocks these signals from reaching your muscles, keeping your muscles relaxed.
The Difference Between Xeomin and Botox
Both of these injectables use botulinum toxin type A as their main ingredient. However, there are some significant differences between the two. One major difference is the fact that this injectable does not contain any additive proteins like Botox.
It’s also much harder to develop a tolerance to this filler than it is to Botox. That means that you’ll be able to continue getting Xeomin injections to help you reach your cosmetic goals, while with Botox you would eventually stop seeing effective results.
What Can It Treat?
When you frown and furrow your eyebrows, you’ll likely notice glabellar lines forming. These are the lines that appear right in between your brows. Not only will these wrinkles make you look older, but they can also make you look constantly worried or angry.
For a much more youthful and inviting appearance, consider getting this injectable. It will help keep the muscles in the area relaxed, making you look younger as well as generally happier.
This injectable can also be used on your forehead. When you raise your brows, you’ll see lines running across your forehead. As these lines become permanent over time, they can make you look constantly surprised.
Once you get injections of this product, it will help keep the muscles under the skin in this area from over-contracting, reducing the appearance of these lines. You’ll look much younger and more relaxed.
Are you starting to see fine lines stretching out from the outer corners of your eyes? This may not be something you’re happy about. These lines may appear subtle, but they can have a drastic effect on the overall appearance of your face.
The skin around your eyes is very mobile. It’s also one of the more delicate parts of your face. Luckily, you can use this injectable around your eyes to help reduce the severity of your crow’s feet. Doing this will help your eyes look younger and brighter.
Along with cosmetic purposes, this injectable can also be used to treat certain medical concerns. Cervical dystonia is a condition that causes the muscles in your neck to contract sporadically and painfully. There is no cure for this condition.
However, there are effective ways to manage it. The botulinum toxin type A in this injectable will block the neurotransmitters telling your neck muscles to contract. This will reduce the amount of spasming you’re experiencing and help you live comfortably and without pain.
Some people may struggle with uncontrollable blinking. This can be an embarrassing and frustrating issue to deal with. Along with feeling uncomfortable, you may feel self-conscious.
You can use this injectable in the area to relax the muscles in your eyelids and reduce the amount of blinking you’re experiencing.
Do you struggle with chronic migraines? Anyone who’s ever had a migraine knows that they are much more than just a headache. Migraines can be debilitating, and in many cases migraines are incurable.
There are, however, ways you can manage your symptoms and reduce the amount of pain you’re experiencing. This injectable can be used to help manage your migraines, allowing you to get back to a more engaging, pain-free life.
Chronic tension around your jaw can be extremely uncomfortable. If you are dealing with TMJ and you’re looking for a way to keep the muscles around your jaw relaxed, then this injectable could be perfect for you.
It will keep the muscles around your jaw from contracting, which in turn will reduce the amount of tension and pain you’re experiencing. This can also be beneficial if you are dealing with frequent tooth grinding because of the tension you’re carrying in your jaw.
What Is Getting Treatment Like?
Before arriving for your appointment, we’ll tell you how to prepare for your injections. It’s very important that you follow these instructions to ensure that your treatment is as effective and comfortable as possible. These instructions will be simple and minimal.
When you arrive for your treatment, we’ll do everything we can to keep you as comfortable as possible. Before applying the injections, we’ll carefully clean your skin and apply a topical numbing cream. As the injections are applied, you’ll only feel a slight pinching sensation. Most appointments only take a few minutes to complete, and you can leave once it’s done.
What Will the Results Be Like?
If you’re concerned that the results you get from your treatment won’t look natural or will make your face look fake, you don’t have to worry. As long as you visit a reputable clinic like ours, you can expect to get natural-looking results that you’re going to love. Most people find that they can enjoy their results for up to 3 or 4 months before needing to return for maintenance treatments.
It’s important to follow our post-treatment instructions if you want to ensure that your results last as long as possible. For the next few days, stay out of direct sunlight and avoid any extreme temperatures as well as strenuous physical activity.
