Dermatologist benefits of Xeomin wrinkle treatments for Chicago patients

Updated: Feb 26, 2019

You can regain youthful contours and texture with the newest and most purified neurotoxin on the market: Xeomin

Xeomin is rooted in medical applications. First approved by the FDA for the treatment of eyelid spasms and head and neck pain caused by cervical dystonia, Xeomin became FDA-approved in 2011 for the treatment of moderate to severe frown lines. Known as glabellar lines, they affect the glabella skin between the eyebrows.

Every time you scrunch this part of your face from worry or even during deep concentration, a groove forms beneath the skin. In younger skin, these lines are only visible at the moment you express that worry. The grooves become a permanent facial feature as you get older. Over time your body produces less natural elastin. This protein helps skin retain its shape after being stretched. Aging skin can’t bounce back as it once did. A lifetime’s-wroth of expressions leave a permanent mark on your face and can make you look perpetually sour or angry.

Neuromodulators: Something to smile about

Unlike creases that form as facial areas lose volume and tissues fall, these expression-related furrows are created by muscle contractions. Products made from highly purified neuromodulators prevent these contractions by interfering with the chemical signals from the nerves that tell your muscles to contract.

Xeomin is made from a type of botulinum toxin type A that doesn’t contain unnecessary accessory proteins or additives. Dr. Jonith Breadon will administer Xeomin precisely to treated muscles using very fine needles. Since this is an injectable treatment, your results and experience depend on the skill of the practitioner administering it. Dr. Breadon has extensive experience with injectable treatments, including different types of neuromodulators.

Millions of people from around the globe have enjoyed natural looking results with Xeomin similar neuromodulator products. Any horror stories often arise from these procedures being performed in a non-medical setting or from too much of the solution being injected into the treatment area, which results in dreaded frozen face.

In the hands of an experienced medical professional in the appropriate setting, Xeomin is designed to produce natural looking results in around 7 to 14 days. The majority of patients in clinical studies saw a 1- to 2-grade improvement 30 days following treatment. A 2-grade improvement, for example, means frown lines characterized as severe prior to treatment are now characterized as minor lines post-procedure.

Xeomin is not a permanent solution. Results can last for up to six months. Unlike less purified solutions, you may find repeat treatments continue to be effective. Neuromodulators that contain additives are associated with the development of antibodies, which can affect the product’s ability to effectively interfere with muscles contractions over time.
