Xeomin-stock-imgEliminate the creases between your brows with Xeomin in Tampa. Although there have been some revolutionary products (treatments) to rid you of facial wrinkles, it is always a good idea to look for alternatives. Now there is a new alternative that is being offered by Dr. Anitha Reddy at M.D. Aesthetics & Wellness Institute for the facial wrinkles in the forehead and between the eyes. For several years Botox was the only answer, and then Dysport was introduced. Now there is an additional product that has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the severe frown lines between the eyebrows. The product is known as Xeomin (pronounced Z-omen).

This product had already been approved by the FDA for two other maladies, abnormal neck pain and movement and abnormal, involuntary blinking or spasm of the eyelids.

This additional use for facial wrinkles works similar to the other products in this field by paralyzing the wrinkles by blocking the signal from the nerves to the muscles in the forehead area, thereby not allowing the muscles to contract.

I have noticed a big difference already

Dr Reddy was very thorough in her explanation of how xeomin would help in the platysmal band in my neck. I have had this procedure done in other places but it never seemed to help. She told me they were not injecting enough and she was right! I have noticed a big difference already. D. N.

What Is Xeomin?

Xeomin is an injectable prescription medication for wrinkle reduction. Xeomin is derived from botulinum toxin type A, which blocks nerve activity in the muscles. It results in temporary inhibition of muscle contraction in the target area.

Xeomin® is different from the predecessors since it does not need to be refrigerated and has no additives. This may lessen your likelihood of developing antibodies.

Xeomin® takes about a week to see complete results and then may last from 3 to six months. This product should not be used interchangeably with Botox or Dysport.

Dr. Anitha Reddy will determine which product is best for your specific needs and desires.

Ideal Candidates for Xeomin

You may be a good candidate for Xeomin treatments if you have wrinkles between your brows, on your forehead, or around your eyes. You should be 18 years or older and must have no known allergy to Botox or similar botulinum toxin injections.

If you have nerve or muscular diseases, you may be recommended to consider other treatment options. Pregnant or nursing women are not ideal candidates for Xeomin injections.

Your Consultation

To determine your eligibility for Xeomin treatments, an examination of your skin will be performed during your consultation. The laxity of your skin and severity of your wrinkles will be assessed. A review of your medical history will be undertaken, including underlying conditions and current medications. Photographs may be taken for before-and-after comparison.

The Treatment Session

Xeomin injections may be administered with or without anesthetic depending on the patient’s needs. The target areas will be cleansed and sanitized. Then, the injection sites will be marked as a guide.

Xeomin will be injected to the target areas until desired results are achieved. A slight pinching or poking sensation may be felt during the injection process. The procedure can take anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes.

Xeomin Aftercare

There is no downtime or recovery required after this minimally invasive treatment. There may be minor temporary swelling, redness, and bruising, which should disappear within the next few days. Avoid rubbing, touching, or applying pressure to the injection sites. Avoid vigorous exercises and abstain from drinking alcohol for the next 24 hours.

Cost of Xeomin Treatments

Because each patient is different, every Xeomin treatment plan is highly personalized. The specific details of each treatment plan impact the cost of Xeomin treatments. The overall price will depend on the number of units administered and the number of wrinkles being treated.
