Frown lines, crow’s feet and other dynamic lines or wrinkles on the brow or around the eyes can impact your appearance. Etched lines can tell your age and even create an angry or upset expression on your face. Xeomin® injections are one of the tools in the arsenal of anti-aging cosmetic treatments available at Los Angeles Plastic Surgery for combatting lines and wrinkles, as well as treating other aesthetic issues.
Frown Line and Crow’s Feet Treatment
Xeomin is in the family of neuromodulators, like Botox® or Dysport®, which interfere with the nerve signals that cause muscles to contract. When carefully injected into the correct muscles, Xeomin can relax them to achieve the desired effect. The most common use of neuromodulators is treating forehead and brow lines, also known as frown lines. These include the furrows between the eyebrow called glabella lines, or the “11 lines,” and the horizontal lines on the forehead. Neuromodulator injections can also smooth crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes.
Xeomin is similar to other neuromodulators in its effects. The treatment can be performed in less than 15 minutes, and there is no downtime after the procedure. It usually takes about 3-4 days for the muscle relaxation effects to be noticeable, and the results can last 3-4 months before the treatment needs to be repeated. For some people, Xeomin offers an alternative to Botox, as it does not contain some of the proteins that can cause resistance to the effects. If Botox no longer creates the desired results, Xeomin injections may be a better option.
