How long do Xeomin injections last?
Xeomin injections are one of a few different injectables on the market used to freeze the facial muscles to prevent them from contracting and causing the skin to crease. These creases form wrinkles, most commonly across the forehead, between the eyebrows and at the corners of the eyes. Similar injectables include Jeuveau and Botox, and they are all formulated using a form of botulinum toxin. Although the formulations vary from one brand to another, the results all last for a similar amount of time, typically ranging from three to six months. Results will vary by individual, with some people experiencing longer lasting results if they are receiving regular injections. Beleza Beauty House offers several different anti-aging treatments, including the different injectables. We will work with our patients on their individual needs to provide the best recommendations for them. People can also try the different types of injections to find out which one they like the most.
What is Xeomin filler?
Xeomin injections are similar to Botox in that they are formulated with botulinum toxin and injected into the muscles of the face in order to prevent the muscles from being able to contract. When the facial muscles aren’t able to contract, the skin doesn’t move and create crease lines in common areas such as the forehead, between the eyebrows and in the corner of the eyes. Each of the different injectables has a slightly different formulation, with different and unique molecular compounds. Xeomin injectables have been FDA-approved for cosmetic purposes, specifically for the purpose of treating moderate to severe wrinkles and creases of the glabellar lines, or the lines between the eyebrows. The specialists at Beleza Beauty House are trained in the different brands of injectables and will help you decide which one will be best for you, based on your skin and the results you want to get from your treatment.
How often should you get Xeomin?
Unfortunately, results from Xeomin injections aren’t permanent. They will fade over time as they are absorbed into the body and patients will start to feel and see their facial muscles start to move and contract again. Results will typically last anywhere from three to six months, although it will vary from one person to the next. Once the injectable does start to wear off, it will be a gradual fade and your trained practitioner can let you know at what point you should receive follow up treatments. The skin specialists at Beleza Beauty House want to keep you looking your best and will let you know what we recommend for the frequency of your treatments based on the results you are looking to achieve, as well as based on how severe or mild your wrinkles are to start.
How do I Prepare For a Xeomin Treatment?
Prior to getting your Xeomin injections, you should have a consultation with a trained and experienced professional to understand the procedure. They will walk you through any risks and the benefits you can expect, how many units of injection they think you will need, what to expect during and following the treatment and anything you need to do, or be aware of, in order to prepare. While Xeomin treatments are FDA-approved and are safe, they are not recommended for women who are pregnant, breastfeeding or planning to become pregnant. The effects of Xeomin injections on unborn children, or babies who are breastfeeding, haven’t been tested or studied, therefore it isn’t known if they will cause any side effects. During your consultation, your practitioner will let you know if there is anything else you need to do, or not do, in the time leading up to your appointment to ensure you get the best results possible. The team at Beleza Beauty House wants your experience to be as smooth and successful as it can be and will ensure you are well prepared prior to your treatment.
What should I Expect During a Xeomin Treatment?
The Xeomin injections themselves may cause mild discomfort when the needle is injected into the skin. Most patients note only that they feel a mild pinch that disappears almost immediately, similar to any other needle getting inserted into the skin. You can ask for a numbing agent to be used on your skin prior to treatment if you are particularly sensitive. The injection procedure itself is fairly quick, lasting about 10 to 20 minutes depending on the surface area being treated and the number of injections required. The staff at Beleza Beauty House have your best interests at heart and we will ensure that you know what to expect during your treatment ahead of time and ensure that you feel comfortable throughout the procedure. We serve patients from Brandon FL, Fishhawk FL, Valrico FL, Riverview FL, Plant City FL, Seffner FL, Apollo Beach FL, and Tampa FL.
