Did you know that fast results are one of the special perks you get when you choose Xeomin Injections? This neuromodulator is more effective than most moisturizers and many professional treatments, yet it works even faster. That is just one of the reasons many of our patients at Beauty 2.0 Aesthetics in Port Moody, BC are requesting these injections. So, how fast does it work and what are the other reasons for its growing popularity?
What Is Xeomin?
Xeomin is a neuromodulator that is very similar to Botox. It focuses on improving glabellar lines, which show up between your eyebrows. The appointment consists of a few quick injections. They deliver a small dose of botulinum toxin, which yields impressive results that last for months at a time.
How Fast Does Xeomin Work?
You can expect this treatment to start working within 3 days. That’s even faster than Botox, which is one reason why some people prefer it over its older cousin. After the first signs of effectiveness, your results will continue to develop for about two weeks.
What Are Neuromodulators, Anyway?
Xeomin Injections and Botox are both categorized as neuromodulators. They work on precisely targeted areas to control the nerve signals that cause muscle tension. How does that help improve wrinkles? As it turns out, muscle contractions are the force behind the lines you start to see in your 20s or early 30s.
How They Work
Xeomin Injections and some other injectables use botulinum toxin, which helps keep your muscles more relaxed throughout the day and night for as long as the effects last. This approach is highly successful in most people because without the muscle tension, their lines and wrinkles soften. The reason we don’t get wrinkles early in life is that our skin is rich in collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. These substances work to return the skin to its original shape after it bunches in response to muscle tension underneath.
In our late 20s or early 30s, our production of natural anti-aging elements starts to wane, however, neuromodulators can help. They control the muscle contractions so that your skin doesn’t form creases that become etched onto your face. It is a strategy that goes beyond the more obvious topical solutions to really get deep into the problem.
How They Are Used
Neuromodulators have been widely used both medically and cosmetically. Their applications range from migraine prevention to lip enhancement. Some other examples include:
- Controlling hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)
- Softening neck lines
- Lifting the corners of the mouth
- Improving a “gummy smile”
- Softening a wide variety of lines and wrinkles
Among neuromodulators, Xeomin Injections is special in that it was specifically designed to improve “frown lines” between the eyebrows. This treatment only requires 5 small injection sites and is completely nonsurgical.
Facts About This Treatment
When researching a treatment, it is important to gather all the essential facts, including how long the results will last and how it will react on your skin. Here are some of the most important things to know about Xeomin Injections:
It Has a High Satisfaction Rating
Most people who try this treatment report that it achieved the results they were looking for. It is a good option for people who have researched many other anti-aging options, only to find that most of them don’t live up to their claims. It is also a great choice for people who are looking for an effective solution that is nonsurgical.
The Results Are Long-Lasting
When you spend time looking into a treatment and booking an appointment, you want the results to last for more than a few days. These injections have you covered! The results last approximately 3-4 months, depending on the individual patient. For people who metabolize the injections slowly, it can last as long as 6 months.
There Is No Limit to How Many Times You Can Have This Treatment
You can make these injections a regular part of your anti-wrinkle routine. It is safe to have them every 4 months, and you will not build up an immunity. By booking a few appointments each year, your skin can look smoother and younger year-round.
The Appointment Takes Half an Hour
That’s right, all you need is 30 minutes to get the injections done. In fact, the actual injections only take about 10 minutes. The rest of the time is for arriving, checking in, and getting settled.
You Will Barely Feel the Injections
There is no need to worry about major discomfort when you choose this treatment. It is performed with an ultra-fine needle, and a numbing agent is available if you prefer to have it. Really, this treatment is so gentle and fast that most people don’t need anesthesia.
There Is No Down Time After Your Appointment
Since the injections are so few and so gentle, you will not need to make arrangements for a recovery period after you receive them. You can literally walk out of the med spa and back into all of your daily activities. We just ask that you avoid heavy exercise for about 24 hours.
It Will Not “Freeze” Your Face
When you book your injections with us, you can be sure that the results will be tasteful and natural-looking. Neuromodulators are not designed to prevent movement in your face. They are just intended to reduce the contractions that cause wrinkles.
It Works On Every Skin Type
Your skin type might factor into your choice of topical creams, serums, and moisturizers. They can be counter-productive and even produce an allergic reaction if used on the wrong skin type. These injections, on the other hand, work for all skin types.
Men Can Benefit Too
Did you know that about 6% of people who use neurotoxins to improve their fine lines and wrinkles are men? This treatment performs just as well for them as it does for women.
There Is No “Perfect Age” To Start This Treatment
Many people ask when they should get their first injections. The answer is that as long as you are an adult, the perfect age is whenever you feel ready. Plus, you can discontinue the treatment at any time without a permanent effect on your appearance, so there is no harm in trying it out.
The Treatment Can Help Prevent Wrinkles
When administered to dynamic areas of the face before wrinkles start to develop, this treatment can significantly delay their onset. It will inhibit the muscle contractions in the wrinkle-prone areas, letting your skin stay smooth for much longer than it otherwise would.
It Also Combines Well With Others
While this treatment works perfectly well on its own, you can use it in combination with other wrinkle-reducers. Since the injections work below the skin, they will combine well with the favorite high-quality skincare products you already apply topically. It goes without saying that any skin care routine benefits from good hydration and daily sun protection.
Neuromodulators Are Often Combined With Dermal Fillers
One category of treatments that often go hand in hand with neuromodulators are dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are injections that add volume and restore your skin’s ability to stay smooth. Often, they use hyaluronic acid to boost collagen levels. When used with neuromodulators, they are a powerful team.
Neuromodulators Are the World’s Most Popular Cosmetic Service
That’s right! Every year millions of people opt for injectables to attain smoother, more wrinkle-free skin. And the results look so natural, you won’t even be able to tell that you’ve had anything done.
