Frown lines form because the muscles under the skin contract to make facial expressions. Lasting frown lines are created because of repeated expressions over a period of time. Xeomin, a neurotoxin, is a form of prescription medication for blocking the release of chemicals that are responsible for muscle contractions. This helps in softening the frown lines.
Khan Eyelid and Facial Aesthetics, led by oculoplastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Tanya Khan, provides Xeomin Aesthetic treatment for frown lines between eyebrows to patients in Austin, Dallas, Texas, and surrounding locations.
Unique Manufacturing Process
Xeomin is manufactured using a state-of-the-art process which isolates the molecule’s therapeutic component by removing all unnecessary or complexing proteins. Xeomin is an advanced purified neurotoxin. It is important to note that there are no studies yet performed on determining whether unnecessary or complexing proteins have any long-term effect on its efficacy or safety.
Botox and Dysport vs. Xeomin
Xeomin is different than Dysport and Botox on a molecular level. The neurotoxin doesn’t contain any protein additives at the time of packaging. Proteins can cause antibodies to develop in the body. Xeomin offers a potential benefit to patients whose skin has stopped responding to Botox treatments.
Xeomin is mainly used for treating dynamic facial wrinkles. The areas commonly treated by Xeomin include worry lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet or the lines at the corners of the eyes, and the lines spanning the forehead. Complete effects of Xeomin can usually be seen within 5 days.
Frown Lines and Xeomin
Frown lines can easily develop between the eyes, around the eyebrows and across the forehead. These lines look like fine lines until you make a facial expression. Over time, frown lines can become visible even when your face is resting. This can make you appear older than your years.
Early treatment using Xeomin injectable can prevent the development of frown lines. It can also help in maintaining a youthful looking and vibrant skin. Xeomin works at muscle level by weakening the facial expressions. This causes visible wrinkles to flatten and lighten. Cumulative benefits of Xeomin can be witnessed over time as the skin gets remodeled.
Crow’s Feet and Xeomin
Crow’s feet are lines that appear at the eye corners. They tend to be more apparent when you smile or laugh. This is a common sign of aging, which may be a source of insecurity for many. Injectable neuromodulator treatments can target the facial muscles that cause these lines. Xeomin can help in smoothing out the skin. You could end up feeling more confident while expressing and smiling in just a few days.
Xeomin Works When Botox Doesn’t
Xeomin is a naked molecule without any complexing or unnecessary protein additives that form part of Dysport and Botox. This is actually a benefit of Xeomin. Patients can develop resistance to the protein additives in Botox. There are no protein additives in Xeomin for your body to develop antibodies. This is why Xeomin works when the body stops responding to Botox.
