As your skin ages, you may develop lines and wrinkles that cause your face to look pinched, upset or angry, even in moments when you are fully relaxed. Lines and wrinkles also form as a result of muscle contractions when you squint and frown. Our dentist may recommend XEOMIN® to help reduce these lines and wrinkles and smooth out the skin of your face.
XEOMIN (incobotulinumtoxinA) is an FDA-approved cosmetic injectable similar to BOTOX®. It is often used to treat moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. XEOMIN works by blocking the nerves in the muscles so that they can no longer move. This reduces muscle activity and relaxes the skin in order to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Your XEOMIN treatment will take about 10 to 20 minutes to complete. Our dentist will simply inject XEOMIN into the muscles in the area requiring treatment. No anesthesia is required for this treatment, though we may offer a topical anesthetic or cold pack to reduce potential discomfort.
You may expect to see results from your XEOMIN treatment within one week following treatment. These results should last three to six months.
