Are you tired of seeing wrinkles and lines when you look in the mirror? Although it’s normal to develop fine lines and wrinkles as you get older, these imperfections will make you feel less confident about your appearance. At Orlando Dermatology in Orlando, Florida, we can smooth your skin and refresh your look in a minimally invasive manner with Xeomin. Read on to learn more about this wonderful injectable product.
Where Is Xeomin Used?
Xeomin is an FDA-approved injectable product that is used to treat is used to treat forehead lines, crow’s feet, and other dynamic wrinkles that appear on your face.
Dynamic wrinkles are lines that are created by the repetitive movements of your muscles. Every day, you smile, yawn, laugh, and make other facial expressions. As you make these expressions, your skin will crease and fold. Although these movements are natural, they will cause your skin to develop noticeable wrinkles over time.
These dynamic wrinkles will mimic your most frequent expressions. For instance, if you smile a lot, you will develop wrinkles around your eyes. If you furrow your brow frequently, you will develop lines on your forehead. We can use this injectable product to treat the wrinkles in these areas of your face.
How Does This Product Improve My Wrinkles?
Xeomin contains purified botulinum toxin: a protein made by a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum. This ingredient can change the communication between your muscles and your nerves. We will inject this product into the facial muscles that cause your skin to crease. The product will prevent your nerves from telling your muscles to move. As a result, your muscles will relax, and the appearance of your wrinkles will improve.
What Is the Injection Process Like?
The injectable process is very quick and straightforward, and we will administer this product in our office in Orlando, Florida. It usually only takes five to fifteen minutes to complete your treatment, and you will feel relaxed as we inject the product into your target area. Once we have finished your injections, you can return to your home or office.
When Will I See Improvements in My Skin?
It takes your skin some time to respond to this product, and you will not see immediate changes in your wrinkles. Instead, you will usually start to notice improvements in your skin in a few days. You should see the full effect of your injections within two weeks.
How Long Will My Improvements Last?
Although the longevity of your results depends on the strength of your facial muscles, how quickly your body processes this product, and other factors, improvements will usually last for three to six months. After your initial treatment wears off, you can maintain your smooth skin by receiving touch-up injections.
Will This Product Freeze My Face?
If you’ve never used an injectable treatment before, you are likely to worry that your treatment will make your face look frozen or stiff. Fortunately, you shouldn’t be concerned about this issue.
We will use our knowledge of facial anatomy to improve your skin in a soft, natural-looking manner, and your face will not look overdone or stiff once you achieve the full benefits of your treatment. Instead, you will appear to be more refreshed and youthful.
When Should I Begin Using This Treatment?
You should start using this treatment when your dynamic wrinkles begin to bother you. Since the condition of your skin is affected by many different factors, you will not necessarily develop wrinkles at the same rate as other people do. Your genes might increase your chances of aging at a rapid rate, and you might make strong facial expressions that etch wrinkles onto your face while you are still in your twenties or thirties.
It’s a good idea to start using this injectable product when your lines first become noticeable. By starting your treatments at a younger age, you will prevent fine lines from turning into deeper wrinkles that are more difficult to treat.
Is This Treatment Safe?
This treatment produces reliable, safe results. In 2011, the FDA approved this treatment for the purposes of reducing wrinkles between the eyebrows. Today, thousands of people around the world have successfully used this product to improve their skin.
Can This Wrinkle Reduction Treatment Really Improve My Skin?
There is ample scientific evidence showing that this treatment is an excellent way to minimize dynamic wrinkles. For example, many people in clinical trials had noticeable improvements in their wrinkles within thirty days of receiving this treatment.

This is a minimally invasive treatment, and this injectable product does not contain additives. As a result, your body is likely to respond well to this treatment.
