Xeomin® in Boston, MA
Xeomin® is a dermal filler that, when injected into the skin, can smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. The product also helps reduce the lines between your eyes and along your forehead. Neem Medical Spa, located in Somerville and Winchester, proudly offers Xeomin® treatments to those who live in Greater Boston.
What is Xeomin®?
Xeomin® is an injectable that has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of reducing fine lines and wrinkles caused by the overstimulation of your facial muscles. Just as Botox® and Dysport® are injected directly into the area where wrinkles appear, Xeomin® is placed at the site where the underlying muscles contract.
Unlike Botox® and Dysport®, Xeomin® is free from clostridium botulinum, so it does not pose the same allergy risks.
Once the injections have been completed, patients report that their face slowly relaxes over the following days. As it relaxes, patients notice the appearance of fine lines and deeper wrinkles diminishing. The results of Xeomin® last for about four months. Results vary by individual.
Xeomin® is a non-surgical procedure, however, it is still critical to work with a highly experienced doctor. If you choose to work with a less experienced physician, you could end up with unsatisfactory results, such as a frozen look on your face or a perpetually surprised looking brow. Dr. Sandhu and her team have vast experience working with Xeomin® and have served many satisfied patients.
Benefits of Xeomin®
There are many benefits that come with Xeomin® treatment. This minimally-invasive treatment is intended to:
- Lessen fine lines, wrinkles and even deep creases on the face
- Postpone the formation of future wrinkles by relaxing your facial muscles
- Treat hyperhidrosis (a condition that causes excessive sweating)
- Require a short recovery time – most patients can begin their regular daily activities shortly after treatment
- Provide a quick treatment option – most appointments last an hour
- Bring results that can last for up to four months, and be maintained with occasional “touch-up” procedures
Who Is a Candidate for Xeomin®?
Xeomin® can benefit almost any patient who is interested in reducing the wrinkles and fine lines on their face. It is an ideal treatment for those who want to look younger without surgery. Men and women alike can reap the benefits of Xeomin® treatments.
The Xeomin® Treatment
The Xeomin® treatment involves a series of minute injections administered directly into the facial muscles lying under the patient’s wrinkles. The injection is usually made between the eyebrows to immobilize facial muscles in the forehead to diminish frown lines.
The injections are not painful and do not require any anesthesia. Some patients request a topical numbing agent to relieve any discomfort they may experience at the injection site. The entire treatment session usually takes less than 15 minutes.
The results of Xeomin® appear between one and seven days after the injections.
Recovery from Xeomin®
Xeomin® doesn’t require any downtime. It is possible to return to work or other normal activities immediately.
A few patients have reported that they experienced side effects such as soreness and bruising at the injection site. These side effects lasted no more than a day.
