Though widely used today, BOTOX® Cosmetic and Xeomin® have developed somewhat of a bad reputation. Many people who want to reduce wrinkles and fine lines are still too worried about looking “overdone” to get these treatments. If you’re among the skeptical, our team at Behr Laser & Skin Care Center can put your mind at ease. At our Fresno center, we strive to provide you with a comfortable and professional experience to help you get the age-defying results you’ve been looking for. Each injection performed at our center is done with the greatest precision to ensure you get natural-looking results without complication.REQUEST APPOINTMENT
What Are Xeomin® Injectables?
Xeomin® is a brand name for a substance called botulinum toxin. This special neurotoxin blend is similar to what is found in Dysport® and Jeuveau™ and works by blocking muscle contractions. This injectable is most commonly used for reducing wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth, forehead, and nose. Xeomin® injections are perhaps the best alternative to BOTOX® Cosmetic. What makes them different is their composition. Xeomin® is made of a “naked” botulinum toxin compound free of added proteins. This lack of additives means that you are less likely to develop a resistance to the treatment over time.
What Do Neurotoxins Address?
At Behr Laser & Skin Care Center, we offer Xeomin® injectables to help you look and feel your absolute best. When you come in for your appointment at our Fresno center, we will take the time to discuss your specific needs and answer any questions you may have. We will never proceed with treatment until you feel comfortable.
Here are just some of the concerns our botulinum toxin injections address:
- Aging Skin
- Forehead Wrinkles
- Smile Lines
- Glabella Lines
- Nasolabial Folds
How Do Xeomin® Injections Work?
Unlike dermal fillers that enhance facial volume, neurotoxins like Xeomin® work by stopping your muscles from contracting and adding strain to your skin. During treatment, which usually takes about 10-20 minutes, Dr. Behr will inject Xeomin® into the facial muscles that are causing wrinkles. No anesthesia is needed for this process, but a topical anesthetic or cold pack may be used to reduce any discomfort you might experience.
What Results Can I Expect From My Injections?
With Xeomin®, you can expect to see results about 3-4 days after your injection. In most cases, the median first onset of this treatment’s effects was less than a week. The maximum effect can be expected at around 30 days. The typical duration of this treatment is roughly three months, as shown in clinical trials. However, the effects may last much longer or shorter depending on your individual case.
