Over time, everyone develops fine lines and wrinkles. These lines are especially pronounced in parts of the face that show expression, such as the skin surrounding the mouth and eyes. Normal muscle activity like smiling and squinting creates lines and wrinkles.
Some people don’t mind these lines, but others feel self-conscious about them. If you are interested in reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, you should consider Xeomin and Botox in Renton, WA.
Finding the Right Cosmetic Treatment for You
Schedule a visit with your dentist to determine how cosmetic treatments can improve your appearance. If specific areas of your face bother you, ask your dentist about treatments that can target those areas. Xeomin and Botox work best to minimize crow’s feet, frown lines near the eyebrows and forehead, and smile lines.
- Quick treatment time
- Easy recovery
- Improved appearance
When choosing an injectable treatment, make sure that the treatment has received FDA approval.
Botox and Xeomin Injection Procedure
Treatment with Botox or Xeomin is a quick and virtually painless process. The dentist will inject either Botox or Xeomin directly into the targeted muscles using a fine needle. The entire process takes no more than 10 to 20 minutes.
Botox and Xeomin treatments do not require anesthesia. The dentist may offer you a topical anesthetic or an ice pack to relieve minor discomfort. You may experience bruising, redness, or swelling because of the injections.
How Do Botox and Xeomin Work?
Both Botox and Xeomin are made from the botulinum toxin and these injectable treatments temporarily paralyze facial muscles. When the muscles under the skin cannot contract, the skin appears tighter and smoother.
The FDA approved Botox as a medical treatment in 1989. Botox injections reduce wrinkles and tighten facial muscles for a youthful, relaxed appearance.
The FDA approved Xeomin as a medical treatment in 2010. While Xeomin is chemically similar to Botox, it is a slightly different formulation of the botulinum toxin. Xeomin reduces wrinkles and stimulates collagen production, which softens skin.
It may take up to a week after the injection for the results to become visible. Both Botox and Xeomin reduce wrinkles and fine lines for up to three months. When the effects wear off, simply schedule another injection.
