Wrinkles and frown lines are an unfortunate part of aging, but that doesn’t mean Riverside County patients have to abandon all hope of looking youthful. Xeomin is an injectable medication that can stop muscle fibers under the skin from contracting, smoothing out wrinkles and lines. It is the only product on the market that uses X-Tract technology to remove all unnecessary proteins that the body can potentially build a resistance to.
What Are the Benefits of Xeomin?
Xeomin has several benefits for patients, the main of which is that patients will look younger. Scientific research that looked at 547 patients found that 60 percent of those who had Xeomin injections had a two-point improvement on a wrinkle assessment scale.
Other than improving glabellar lines in the forehead, some of the other benefits of Xeomin include:
- Non-invasive, meaning there’s no downtime, scarring, or wounds
- Short treatment time, as the appointment usually only takes 10 to 20 minutes
- No need for anesthesia
- Long-lasting results of up to three months
Who Is a Candidate for Xeomin?
Many Riverside County patients are candidates for Xeomin. In particular, it’s an excellent choice for patients who are concerned with forehead wrinkles like frown lines. Because it’s non-invasive, even patients who aren’t healthy enough for surgery may be able to have Xeomin.
However, because Xeomin uses botulinum toxin as a main ingredient, not everyone is a candidate, as some people may be allergic to this bacterium. Patients who want to confirm their candidacy are urged to schedule an appointment with our doctors to learn more.
The cost of Xeomin varies depending on how many shots the patient needs, as well as how frequently they come for a touch-up. With that said, the best way for Riverside County patients to get an accurate estimate is to schedule an appointment with our doctors. During this appointment, our doctors can work with the patient one-on-one to devise a plan of care specifically for their needs. After the plan of care is created, we can more easily estimate total costs.
If patients don’t have the full cost of treatment upfront, we partner with three different financing companies to make paying easier. CareCredit, Alphaeon Credit, and Point Loma Credit Union all have payment plans to make Xeomin affordable.
What Is the Recovery After Xeomin?
There is little to no recovery after Xeomin. Patients will be able to drive themselves home and go about their typical day (though they will want to take it easy with exercise and physical activity). Some patients do experience side effects after the injections, including:
- Dry mouth.
- Muscle weakness.
- Pain at the site of the injection.
- Neck pain.
- Eye issues, such as swelling, blurring, or drooping of the eyelids.
- Feeling tired.
Luckily, these side effects should dissipate after a few hours or days. After three to four days, patients will begin to see their forehead look smoother, with full results coming in at about one week.
