Have you noticed more pronounced lines between your eyebrows or along your forehead? Aging or deterioration of your skin’s health can lead to this common aesthetic problem. However, Xeomin gives you the option to minimize these lines and wrinkles, and we have this quality treatment available at The Botox Bar in Dallas, TX. You can restore a younger, glowing look and reduce the appearance of these lines using this advanced treatment.
Can You Remove Frown Lines With Xeomin?
While there is no one cure for frown lines, you can take years off your age by reducing their appearance. Repetitive muscle movement leads to a decrease in skin elasticity, the root cause of frown lines. Even when you’re relaxed and calm, these lines can make you appear mad or exhausted. Typically, these lines begin to show up when you’re in your 40s. Natural moisturization and elasticity begin to decrease at this point in your life. Bad sleep habits, poor diet, or excess stress can cause these lines to develop at an even earlier age, making you appear older than you are.
Treatment To Reduce Your Frown Lines
Neuromodulators such as Xeomin or Botox can be used to reverse these signs of aging and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. They can also smooth lines in your forehead, fine wrinkles, and crow’s feet. You’ll appear more youthful and relaxed after receiving treatment. These fast-acting treatments get you to your anti-aging goals quickly and without any lengthy downtime.
How Does Treatment Work?
This injectable is used to reduce dynamic wrinkles that develop from repetitive movements of your facial muscles. This includes frowning, scowling, squinting, or laughing. After years of these repeated movements, your face begins to lose its elasticity. This naturally leads to fine lines setting in. Anti-wrinkling injectables are designed for these exact situations. Botulinum is injected into the facial muscles to relax them, controlling the movements that cause lines to form. Fine lines and wrinkles begin to become less noticeable as your muscles relax from treatment.
How Is It Different From Botox?
Both of these treatments are similar in that they’re both neuromodulators. Botox may be a more recognizable name since it has been around for longer, but both treatments reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles for months at a time. The exact formula of the chemicals used in each is the main difference between the two.
Both injections used botulinum toxin type A as their active ingredient. This blocks neuromuscular signals from your facial muscles, helping to relax them. Despite working with the same primary ingredient, there is some difference in how the two treatments are used and their exact chemical formulas.
Purified Botulinum Formula
Unlike Botox, this treatment uses a completely purified form of botulinum. Botox uses additional proteins to deliver its effects, while this formula delivers the same effect without any additives. This more purified solution can reduce your body’s antibody resistance to its effects.
Both of these treatments will reduce signs of aging and remove frown lines once they take effect. Both will get you the results you’re looking for, but some studies have shown results show up more quickly with Xeomin. Typically, results last for a minimum of three months. However, results may last four to five months or even longer, depending on the amount of the dose and the areas being treated. There are some studies that suggest this treatment lasts longer than Botox in women, as well.
How Quickly Will Results Show?
The fast-acting results of this treatment are one of the main reasons for its popularity. You’ll notice visible differences within just four days of the injection. Benefits can continue to persist from anywhere between three and six months. You can schedule a follow-up appointment to continue the effects after your first treatment begins to wear off.
What To Expect During Treatment
You’ll find the entire treatment process to be simple and worry-free. The first step is cleaning the target areas where the injection will be applied. To ensure precision, we’ll also place a few temporary marks on the treatment areas as reference points. A fine, sterile needle is used to apply the treatment. Depending on the scope of results you’re looking to achieve, our experts can make two or three injections in one session. The entire process is comfortable, quick, and surprisingly easy.
Post Treatment Care
One advantage of this solution is that there aren’t many restrictions after treatment. Avoid rubbing your face for a minimum of 12 hours after the injection, and refrain from lying down for four hours. On the first day after treatment, you should also refrain from contact with hot water on the treatment area.
What Causes Frown Lines?
Appearing just above the eyebrows, frown lines show up as wrinkles on your forehead. You’ll appear as if you may be upset or worried even when you aren’t, expressions that are often associated with aging. If you want to alleviate this troubled look, you can use certain cosmetic treatments to reduce these frown lines. There are a number of different contributing factors that cause the appearance of these frown lines.
Facial Muscle Movement
When we express ourselves, repetitive motions of our facial muscles can cause wrinkles to develop. You may not even realize that you’re using these muscles repetitively, since it happens naturally. Those of us who experience intense emotions may notice this problem especially. One example are crow’s feet around the eyes, which is most commonly caused by squinting. You may also see frown lines form from similar repeated facial expressions.
Deep-seated marks in your skin can be left behind if these lines and wrinkles go untreated for too long. Sun exposure and other aging processes also have a role to play.
Natural Aging Process
Your skin naturally produces proteins like collagen and elastin that give it its youthful look. This natural elasticity prevents wrinkles from forming from repetitive muscular movement. Your skin ‘snaps back’ into place with this natural support network behind it. This results in skin that is both flexible and smooth in appearance. As the production of these proteins slows down, your body begins to show more of these wrinkles and lines in your skin.
Sun Damage to Your Skin
The most common cause of skin damage and wrinkling is exposure to the sun. Ultraviolet (or UV) radiation damages and changes your skin. Brown spots and irregularities in your complexion begin to form from prolonged sun exposure. All of this hastens the natural aging process. Proteins such as elastin are damaged by UV rays, and contribute to wrinkles and, even worse, skin cancer. UV damage to your skin is even more of a risk for people with a fair complexion. Dark skin tends to hold up naturally to sun damage a little better than fair skin does.
Risks From Smoking
Frown lines may form from the repetitive motion involved in smoking cigars or cigarettes. The narrower blood vessels and reduced circulation associated with smoking can also lead to wrinkles and lines. These increased aging effects come with all the other health risks that smoking creates. Some of these changes may not be noticeable until you’re in your 30s or 40s. Many smokers begin to notice fine lines around their mouths. Generally, nonsmokers tend to have fewer wrinkles than smokers.
Reducing wrinkles is the main use for this treatment, but there are other benefits you can take advantage of. Chin dimples, a lack of softness in the jawline, and a dropping smile can also be cured by botulinum treatments. If you show too much gum when you smile, these treatments can also solve that. There are also studies that suggest migraines and spasms can also be reduced by the use of botulinum treatments.
When Should You Start Treatment?
Expressions like laughing and squinting cause creases to form in your face. Over time, these expressive lines can start to remain even when our face is still. This is when injectable treatments such as our solution might be called for. Many patients begin treatment with botulinum formulas when they’re in their 30s. However, preventive treatment for patients in their late 20s is becoming more common.
Fighting the signs of aging can never come too early or too late in life. Starting treatment early can help delay the first signs of aging our skin begins to show. Starting injections in your late 20s is often the right choice if you want to postpone wrinkles and signs of aging. Most medical professionals require candidates for treatment to be at least 18 years or older.
Is Treatment Right For You?
This versatile treatment provides an excellent solution for a wide range of patients. To find out if you’re a good candidate, we’ll start with a consultation with our team of experts. This will help us develop a plan that is tailor-made to give you the unique results you want. Reviewing your medical history, finding out about your concerns, and discovering your cosmetic goals will help us understand what you want from treatment.
Whether or not this treatment is the right solution for you is something we’ll help you determine. Good candidates meet the following criteria:
Good Overall Health
General health is an important factor in determining how to proceed with treatment. Reviewing your medical history as well as any prescriptions or medications you’re taking is an important step. We must receive approval from a physician before administering this treatment.
You Have Realistic Expectations
While the results of a botulinum formula are impressive, they won’t take 20 years off your appearance. What it can do is ease the signs of aging to restore a generally more youthful look. Understanding what treatment can do and setting realistic expectations is critical for potential candidates.
You Don’t Have Inflamed or Tanned Skin
Sunburn and inflammation on the treatment site can be a problem. If you regularly tan your skin, you may need to wait for the tan to fade before receiving aesthetic treatments like Xeomin. You may also need to postpone injections if your skin becomes irritated. Other options may be better suited in cases like this.
