If you have started to notice fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes or between your brows, it might be time to consider getting Xeomin, an excellent alternative to BOTOXCosmetic.
When Should I Start Xeomin Injections?
Since Xeomin treats even the earliest signs of aging, when you start injections depends on your needs and aesthetic goals. Treatment with Xeomin is one of the best ways to temporarily smooth wrinkles and reduce the signs of aging. But to really understand when you start getting injections, you need to understand how your skin changes as you get older.
As you get older, your skin produces less collagen and hyaluronic acid. Over time, your skin becomes thinner and is not as supple as it was before. With regular Xeomin injections, your current wrinkles are less noticeable, and you will see fewer wrinkles develop over time.
Is Xeomin Right for You?
When administered by a licensed medical professional, Xeomin is a safe and effective cosmetic treatment. It is important to note that not everyone is a candidate for injections. Individuals who suffer from underlying medical conditions like ALS, multiple sclerosis, or motor neuron diseases are not suitable candidates for Xeomin.
Prevention is Key
Starting Xeomin as soon as you see wrinkles appear is the best way to minimize them. With regular treatment, you can also prevent new wrinkles from forming. The key is to start early and maintain regularly scheduled touch-up appointments, which are usually every three to four months.
The Side Effects of Xeomin
Before having Xeomin injected, it is important for you to know the risks associated with it. Dr. Robert Brueck will cover them in detail, but the most common risks of Xeomin include:
- Droopy eyelids.
- Pain and swelling in the injection site.
- Experiencing dry or watery eyes.
- Having a headache.
- Experiencing mild flu-like symptoms.
This is very rare, but another potential side effect of Xeomin is when it spreads to other parts of the body. Contact the doctor immediately if you experience vision problems, weakness in the muscles, or loss of bladder control.
