Facial Wrinkle Treatments with Xeomin®
Facial wrinkle treatments performed in Pittsburgh using Xeomin involve temporarily relaxing select facial muscles, limiting their ability to fully contract and effectively smoothing and reducing the appearance of frown lines.
Facial wrinkle treatments with Xeomin involve the injection of a minuscule amount of incobotulinumtoxinA, which is a botulinum toxin type A. Xeomin wrinkle treatment works by temporarily relaxing select facial muscles, limiting their ability to fully contract. After Xeomin injections, all untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion, allowing normal facial expression to remain unaffected.
Following a Xeomin wrinkle treatment, normal activities can resume immediately as long as you remain in an upright position and avoid any pressure on the area for at least 4 or 5 hours.
The results of the Xeomin injections are not instant. Improvement is gradual and usually begins within 2 to 3 days, with the final result achieved in about a week. In most cases, the treated wrinkles will relax and soften, producing a younger, well-rested appearance.
Although the improvement varies with each person, the result may last 3 to 4 months or longer.
