Understanding Dynamic Wrinkles
When the facial muscles repeatedly contract due to normal facial expressions, dynamic wrinkles form. Surface treatments only address the evidence of these muscle movements: the development of lines and wrinkles. Yet, without addressing the root cause of wrinkles—that is, muscle movement—dynamic wrinkles won’t ever really go away.
How Xeomin® Helps
Xeomin® is very similar to BOTOX® or Dysport®. Although manufactured by different companies, all three treatments work by temporarily paralyzing the targeted muscle groups. This allows the muscles to fully relax, causing wrinkles to vanish.
Unlike BOTOX® or Dysport®, there are no additional ingredients besides botulinum toxin Type A in Xeomin®. In Both BOTOX® and Dysport®, the toxin is bound to a protein that, over time, the body may build up a resistance to. This can make treatments less effective in some patients. Xeomin® is a purer form of botulinum toxin; the body is less likely to develop antibodies in response to treatment, making Xeomin® ideal for long-term use in both men and women.
One treatment session takes just a few minutes, and can even be scheduled over your lunch break. Dr. Green will have you make some facial expressions to help her map which muscles need to be targeted for the best results. Next, she’ll inject very small amounts of Xeomin® into those muscle groups. This prevents further muscle contractions that could lead to deepening of existing frown lines or other wrinkles, and smoothes away existing wrinkles as well.
Most patients don’t notice any discomfort during treatment, although a topical numbing medication is available if needed. Our patients are able to return to work and their normal daily activities right away after their appointment.
The results from Xeomin® are visible within a few days and the results last for up to 6 months. Dr. Green will answer any questions you have about these injections so that you can make the best choice for your individual circumstances.
