Why Do We Get Frown Lines?
Frown lines, also known as glabellar lines, are formed by repeated muscle contractions over time. When we use and tense our muscles, the skin over top will contract or stretch with the movement. As we get older, we begin to lose natural elasticity in our skin. This makes our skin more susceptible to wrinkles and lines.
Stress and natural expressions can cause our muscles to over-activate, even getting stuck in their active position without a concerted effort to relax them. Eventually, these tensed muscles and repeated facial movements will begin to cause persistent frown lines. Because these lines are caused by muscle movement under the surface of the skin, over-the-counter creams and serums won’t be enough to reduce their appearance.
What Is XEOMIN?
XEOMIN is an injectable neuromodulator that can be used to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines on the forehead. Its active ingredient is commonly used in many cosmetic treatments available today, including brand names like BOTOX® and Dysport®.
How Does It Treat Frown Lines?
Injectable neuromodulators work by treating the nerves and muscle under the skin. It essentially works as a muscle relaxer by blocking the messages sent by the body that tell the muscle to contract. With these signals blocked, the muscle is effectively relaxed, allowing the skin above to smooth out and relax as well.
How Long Will My Results Last?
After the initial treatment, you should begin to see a considerable difference in your frown lines within just days. This should continue to improve over the following weeks. For most people, reduced frown lines and smoother skin will last for multiple months before there is any need to return for additional treatments. However, results and their longevity vary from patient to patient.
Is It Safe?
Yes! Dermal fillers and injectable neuromodulators like XEOMIN are incredibly safe when it comes to treating facial wrinkles. XEOMIN has proven to be a safe and effective treatment. It is FDA-approved for cosmetic use and is a preferred option for many providers and their clientele.
Is XEOMIN Right for Me?
As with any cosmetic treatment, your individual history and desired outcome will need to be taken into consideration. A consultation with our experienced professionals will ensure that you not only receive the results that you want, but also that you receive the right treatment, ensuring your safety and comfort every step of the way.
