Are you unhappy with the way your skin has changed as you’ve gotten older? Looking for a solution? Our Xeomin treatments at Prizant Dermatology Pittsburgh, PA can help you feel comfortable in your skin again. Here are just some of the benefits you can expect from this treatment.
What Are the Benefits of Xeomin?
A Good Alternative to Botox
Botox is an injectable cosmetic treatment made with botulinum toxin type A as the main ingredient. When injected, this ingredient blocks signals sent from your brain called neurotransmitters from reaching your muscles and telling them to contract. This keeps skin smooth and wrinkle-free.
However, many people begin to build up an immunity to Botox, which renders treatment ineffective over time. Xeomin, however, is not known to cause this issue. That means that you won’t need to worry about building up an immunity to the product and can continue getting treatment as long as you want it.
If you’re looking for an effective way to maintain a youthful appearance, then surgery could be a good option for you. However, surgeries are often highly invasive procedures, and that could be something you’re not comfortable with for a variety of reasons.
If you’re looking for a less invasive option, this injectable could be the perfect solution. All that’s used to perform the treatment is a very fine needle. This means you don’t have to worry about an extensive and uncomfortable recovery period after your treatment. The treatment itself is also pain-free and fast.
Treatment Works Quickly
Some injectables or other cosmetic treatment options can take a while to actually show you the results you want. You may find yourself needing to wait for several days or even weeks to being to see the changes you want in your overall appearance.
One of the best things about this treatment is how quickly it will start to work. While you may not see a change in your appearance right away, over the next 3 or so days you’ll begin to see your results. Over the next few weeks, these results will only improve as time goes on. You can help them show up even faster by performing certain facial exercises.
When you’re looking for a way to maintain an overall youthful appearance, having something that’s going to last you a long time is important. While no injectable can provide permanent results, some will certainly last longer than others.
You can expect your results from this treatment to last you around 3 to 4 months before you need to head for maintenance treatments. Help your results last as long as possible by taking good care of your skin post-treatment.
Treatment Is Comfortable
When you get cosmetic treatments like surgeries, you may need to anticipate some discomfort. You may even experience pain as your skin recovers from the procedure. Sometimes this can last for several weeks. If this is something you’re keen to avoid, you’ll want to consider this injectable.
When you visit the team at our clinic, you can trust us to do everything we can to keep your treatment as comfortable as possible. You should only feel a slight pinch as the product is injected into your desired areas. If you’re especially concerned about pain, we can even apply a topical numbing cream to your skin.
Almost Anyone Can Get Treatment
Some treatment options may simply not be right for certain people. There are a lot of injectables out there, but some of them cause fewer issues than others. Botox can be an effective way to maintain a younger look, as can Dysport. But these products won’t be right for people with sensitivities to milk proteins.
If you have a sensitivity like this but you still want effective and natural-looking results, you’ll want to consider this treatment. It’s a great option for people who have sensitivities and can’t get treatments like Botox.
Your Muscles Will Maintain Their Range of Movement
It’s a common mistaken belief that treatments involving neuromodulators like this one will freeze your muscles entirely. You may think that getting this treatment will completely impede your ability to make facial expressions. But that’s not the case.
It’s true that the main ingredient in Xeomin, botulinum toxin type A, will block neurotransmitters from reaching your muscles. However, this doesn’t prevent the muscles from moving entirely. You’ll still be able to make facial expressions as you normally would, but now these expressions won’t cause lines to deepen and remain permanent fixtures on your face.
It’s a Good Preventative Measure
When you get this treatment, you can effectively reduce wrinkles and lines that have started to appear on your face. But you don’t need to wait until you’re seeing these signs of aging before you start treating your skin.
This product can easily be used as an effective way to prevent these wrinkles from showing up on your face altogether. Most people begin to see wrinkles showing up around their late twenties and early thirties. So, if you’re in the age bracket and you want to keep your skin looking young, consider getting this treatment to keep wrinkles from showing up at all.
It Can Help You Look More Relaxed
Some of the wrinkles that appear on your face, especially the ones around the upper half of your face, can make you look perpetually worried, angry, or upset. For instance, the lines you may have on your forehead can have a huge effect on your overall appearance.
When you get this treatment to target concerns like this, that will reduce the appearance of these lines and make you look not only younger but happier and more relaxed too.
Results Will Look Natural
Many people worry about their appearance looking fake or unnatural when they get cosmetic treatments. Many fillers and other types of treatments have gotten bad reputations for making a person’s face appear like plastic. However, this isn’t necessarily the reality you need to expect.
When you get this treatment from a reputable clinic, you can expect to get results that will look completely natural. It’s easy to customize your treatment and provide you with the youthful and healthy-looking appearance you want while also ensuring that your results look as natural as possible.
All About Your Treatment
Preparing for Your Injections
We’ll hold a consultation with you at our clinic before your appointment to discuss a few things. First, we’ll go over your medical history to ensure this is the safest and most effective option for you. We’ll also talk about your cosmetic concerns and goals so we can help you set realistic expectations.
Once we’ve determined that this is the right treatment for you, we’ll set you up with an appointment and tell you what you need to do to prepare. For the next few days, avoid things like tobacco and alcohol as well as certain over-the-counter medications.
Your entire treatment process will be fast and easy. We’ll start by cleaning your skin and removing any oil or grime that’s built up before your appointment. We will also mark the areas where you’ll get your injections. As we mentioned before, we can apply a numbing cream to help keep you comfortable.
When we begin injecting the product, you’ll only feel a small pinching sensation. There should be no pain at all. Most appointments only take around 15 to 30 minutes in total depending on how many injections are necessary. You can leave as soon as the treatment is complete.
As you know, this treatment is non-invasive, making the recovery process incredibly easy and low maintenance. There’s no downtime required, so you can get back to your busy life right away. There are just a few basic things that you’ll need to remember over the next few days.
Your skin will be a little more sensitive than normal, so make sure you take good care of it. Avoid going out in direct sunlight to prevent burning and apply sunscreen if you do have to go outside. Remember to avoid strenuous physical activity as well as extreme temperatures.
