Using Xeomin injections for anti-aging and facial rejuvenation
The natural process of aging takes a toll on our appearance, even if we feel youthful and energetic. The slow loss of collagen and elastin in the skin gives way to the formation of fine lines and noticeable wrinkles that can develop on the face and cause us to look older than we feel on the inside. To combat this, many men and women visit Dr. Scott Gillin and his team at RewindMD to learn more about cosmetic injectables that can help. This includes a popular option known as Xeomin, a neuromodulator designed for treating fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face. Let’s take a minute to learn about this cosmetic treatment readily available at our office in Solana Beach, California.
What is Xeomin?
Xeomin injections are a wrinkle-smoothing treatment that targets frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead wrinkles. Xeomin is a type of botulinum toxin similar to other neuromodulators, such as the more popular Botox and Dysport.
How is Xeomin different?
What sets Xeomin apart from other botulinum toxins is that it contains only one purified protein. This means the body is less likely to become resistant to Xeomin over time, making it a long-term solution for wrinkles. Additionally, Xeomin is free of additives and preservatives, minimizing the risk of allergic reactions.
How do Xeomin and other popular neuromodulators work?
Xeomin works to block the nerve signals to the muscles responsible for causing wrinkles. By temporarily paralyzing these muscles, Xeomin can reduce the appearance of both fine lines and wrinkles caused by muscle tension, also known as “dynamic wrinkles.”
