The optimal results are a more refreshed appearance. Xeomin® is used to treat similar areas and concerns as those for Botox and other injectables.
What to Expect
BOTOX® or Xeomin® treatment involves injectable delivery of very tiny and controlled quantities of the product in the targeted areas of the face to reduce facial wrinkles and lines. The injection process is quick and simple. Clients usually describe it as fast and painless. An assessment is made of the targeted muscles, followed by a precise injection of BOTOX®/ Xeomin® Cosmetic using very fine needles. This causes the muscle to relax, which allows the wrinkle on the skin surface to fade away. The entire process takes no longer than 30 minutes, depending on the size of the area being targeted.
After each treatment, you will start to see results after about 2 weeks, feeling rejuvenated and relaxed, while maintaining a natural facial expression. Clients can return to their normal activities immediately after treatment. The injections slowly start to work in the days following the treatment and the results usually last several months before another treatment is required.
New uses of BOTOX® and Xeomin® include the reduction of excessive sweating of hands and armpits, TMJ, and relief of headaches and migraines. These treatments may be covered by some health insurance companies or offered to clients without insurance with BOTOX® Cosmetic.
