Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2011 new botulinum toxin type A, XEOMIN is the product for treatment of Glabellar frown lines or 11′s lines between the eyebrows. XEOMIN is manufactured by Merz Aesthetics, and has been used worldwide.
Like other prescription drugs of this type, XEOMIN works by paralyzing muscles and eliminating wrinkles. It works by blocking the signals from the nerves to the muscles. As a result, the targeted muscles are not able to contract thus smoothing the skin and eliminating wrinkles.
XEOMIN, Botox and Dysport are very similar, but there are also some important differences. Unlike its rivals, XEOMIN does not need to be refrigerated. What’s more, XEOMIN is what can be called “naked.” It is pure with no additives- just botulinum toxin type A. It may reduce likelihood of the patient developing resistance to XEOMIN. When body senses a foreign agent, it creates antibodies in response and launching an attack on invader. This is why botulinum toxin type A stops working for some patients.
XEOMIN is diluted in the same proportion as Botox. It takes from three to seven days for the full effects of XEOMIN to take place, and the results last from three to six months depending on the patient.
The active ingredient in XEOMIN is a naturally occurring protein onabotulinumtoxinA that relaxes muscles. XEOMIN injections relax the muscles that cause wrinkles between eyes (frown lines), smile lines (crow’s feet), and forehead lines (transverse worry lines). These wrinkles are the result of often use of the upper facial muscles (frowning, smiling, raising eyebrows, quizzical expressions). The constant muscle movements lead to dynamic wrinkles and XEOMIN is an excellent choice for eliminating these wrinkles.
XEOMIN is injected into muscles to relax them and to reduce their movement. XEOMIN blocks the release of a chemical messenger- acetylcholine that sends the signal from nerves and causes muscles to contract. Not all nerves are affected by XEOMIN, so the muscles are still able to contract, just with less power and with more visually soothing effect.
You will be asked to remove any makeup before our doctor starts injecting XEOMIN. This will help doctor to see and avoid the veins at injection sites that are prone to bruising.
During the procedure itself you will be placed in a comfortable sitting position. We will cleanse the areas to be treated and apply topical ice or numbing cream to help shrink the blood vessels and reduce sensitivity of your skin. Just before the injections Trifecta Med Spa doctors will ask you to repeatedly contract and relax your treated muscles and then we will assess the thickness and quality of your skin, the thickness and size of the treated muscles, and decide the most appropriate dose and best points for the injections. Finally our doctors at Trifecta Med Spa will inject the targeted muscles with the finest possible needle, thus minimizing discomfort and bruising. In the event that bleeding occurs, we will apply manual point pressure. This helps minimize the extent of bruising. Makeup may be applied as soon as we finish the procedure.
