XEOMIN® (BOTOX®-LIKE INJECTION)
For patients who would like to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines, our dentists offer XEOMIN® injections to give them a healthier, younger appearance.
What is Xeomin® and How Does It Help?
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 dentists may recommend XEOMIN® 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 10-20 minutes to complete. Our dentists 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 a 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.
