As men and women, different signs of aging can develop on the face and add lines, wrinkles, and creases to your appearance. For dynamic wrinkles that occur along with your facial expressions, we offer safe and effective Xeomin and Botox injections at Dermatology Solutions, PCCL of Washington.
These injectable treatments are in a class of skin rejuvenation options known as neuromodulators, meaning they are derived from the botulinum molecule and used to temporarily relax dynamic wrinkles around the eyes and forehead such as crow’s feet and brow lines. Both of these products are extensively tested for safety and efficacy and can smooth dynamic wrinkles away for up to four months with optimal treatment.
Both of these neuromodulators are directly injected into targeted facial muscles fine a fine needle. Over the course of two or three days, the botulinum molecule works within the skin to temporarily block nerve signals from causing facial muscle activity around the eyes and forehead, relaxing dynamic wrinkles and restoring a more youthful appearance. These treatments can be completely customizable depending on your unique aesthetic goals.
While both of these neuromodulators have a similar formulation and treatment process, they can differ in how much product is necessary, how long results last, and how quickly results become visible. Both products are still being tested, but our experienced medical team can help you choose which injectable is right for you.
These treatments are indicated for moderate to severe dynamic wrinkles around the eyes and forehead, but results may vary from patient to patient depending on their unique condition and aesthetic goals. Our team will let you know what you can expect and outline a treatment plan for you during your consultation.
For men and women who are seeking a non-surgical approach to wrinkle relaxation, who are in good health with no medical contraindications, and who have realistic expectations, both BOTOX® and Xeomin® are safe, clinically-proven options. Slight redness, itching, swelling, and bruising may occur at injection sites, but these typically fade within the first few days without complications or disruptions from normal activities.
