Remove Wrinkles and Frown Lines Without Surgery
After Botox and Dysport came Xeomin. Approved by the FDA for the treatment of severe frown lines and adults with cervical dystonia or blepharospasm (eye spasm), Xeomin is used by many people worldwide. The new botulinum toxin type A product blocks nerve activity in the muscles, causing a temporary reduction in muscle activity. It is used to treat spasms in the neck muscles and eye muscle conditions which are caused by nerve disorders.
While all three fillers (Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin) provide similar results, they have important differences. Unlike Botox and Dysport, Xeomin does not contain additives. As a result, a patient’s likelihood of developing antibodies may decrease. Furthermore, it takes roughly one week for the full effects of Xeomin injections to be visible. Once this occurs, results last from three to six months.
As with all filler treatments, you may experience some mild redness and temporary swelling. A very small percentage of patients may experience some bleeding and bruising at the injection site.
