One such alternative product that is available is Xeomin® (incobotulinumtoxinA). This product was developed by the makers of Radiesse®!. Xeomin® has been used extensively throughout Europe to diminish wrinkles and give patients a younger, refreshed look. Xeomin® is now FDA-approved in the United States and opens a new door for those interested in an additional option when it comes to wrinkle and anti-aging procedures.
What is Xeomin®
Xeomin® is an injectable wrinkle removal solution. Xeomin® is a smart toxin created with a double-filtered formula stripping out unnecessary proteins. Unlike its competitors, Xeomin® is a “naked injectable,” meaning that it does not contain any additives. The major benefit of a pure-form injectable is that the human body is less likely to become resistant to Xeomin®.
How Does Xeomin® Work?
Xeomin® relaxes the muscles that create wrinkles, thereby diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Xeomin® temporarily reduces the contractions of the muscles that cause those persistent lines that have developed over time around your eyes and between your brows. It has been approved by the FDA for the temporary treatment of moderate to severe frown lines in people ages 18 to 65.
Xeomin® is truly a lunch time procedure. This is one of its great benefits. Using Xeomin® to remove fine lines requires no recovery. You can see an improvement from your Xeomin® treatment within three to four days, and the results may last for up to three months.
