Do you look like you are perpetually frowning or upset? Years of quizzical expressions that furrow the brow can leave etched lines that make you look older. The muscles that cause your forehead to wrinkle and your eyebrows to move are responsible for creating those frown lines that eventually do not smooth away on their own. At The K Spa, we offer muscle-relaxing injections like Xeomin to diminish frown lines and help you look like a happier, younger version of yourself.
Xeomin uses the same active ingredient as Botox and Dysport to fight wrinkles and frown lines. The neurotoxin found in all three can block messages in neuropathways to muscles, stopping them from contracting. When injections are carefully placed to affect the targeted muscles, neurotoxins relax the muscles that form frown lines on the brow or crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes. The results take a few days to appear and can last between 3 to 6 months.
At The K Spa, we offer all three of these injections for our patients desiring diminished frown lines or wrinkles caused by muscle contractions. While they all work in a similar manner, there are slight differences that can make one more appropriate over another, depending on the patient and their desired results. Dr. Benjamin Stong, our founder, is a dual board certified facial plastic surgeon that understands the benefits of Xeomin and when it is the best choice for treating age lines for our patients.
What Makes Xeomin Different?
Xeomin can have the same line smoothing results as other muscle-relaxing injections, but it is formulated slightly differently. Both Botox and Dysport contain proteins as part of their formulas; Xeomin does not. In simple terms, Xeomin is a purer form of the neurotoxin. It does not need to be kept refrigerated like the other two, making it easier to store.
What does all this mean for you? When it comes to treating the “11” between the eyebrows, horizontal lines on the forehead or crow’s feet, Xeomin injections are just as effective as Botox or Dysport. What can make it advantageous is that patients are less likely to build a resistance to Xeomin. Some people begin to notice that Botox no longer performs the same after several treatments. Xeomin can be a wonderful alternative, offering similar results and with less chance of a patient forming antibodies that can reduce the effects.
Effective Treatment to Eliminate Frown Lines
If you are looking for a way to reduce those frown lines on your brow, or smooth away wrinkles around your eyes when you smile, Xeomin injections may be the right option. The procedure is quick and almost painless. Dr. Stong and our team use precision placement to obtain the best results. We administer Xeomin with our bruise-free injection technique, so there are fewer side effects. You can come in for your Xeomin injections on your lunch hour and return to work without noticeable bruises. The treatment is discreet, and most people notice their results in less than a week after their visit.
All muscle-relaxing injections like Xeomin and Botox should be administered by an experienced medical professional. Dr. Stong’s experience and training ensure our patients receive precise placement for the best results. Administration is key in creating the results you desire, targeting the exact muscles without interfering with other natural facial movements.
