Xeomin at Seriously Skin, Chagrin Falls

Xeomin Xeomin is used for the enhancement of the face, and it can help in reducing folds and wrinkles on the upper portion of the face, including the forehead and between the eyebrows (also known as glabellar lines). While it cannot provide the same results as a surgical face-lift, it is a wonderful alternative for mild to moderate aging. Some patients may benefit from other treatments such as laser resurfacing. An experienced dermatologist at Seriously Skin will educate patients so they can make a knowledgeable decision in regards to the best dermatological treatment for their specific needs and desires.
When Xeomin begins to absorb into the body, patients will notice their wrinkles gradually return. However, they may not be as deep or severe. This can be avoided when patients schedule periodic maintenance injections to stay wrinkle-free and slow the signs of aging.

Before undergoing treatment, patients should follow strict protocols for their health and safety. Patients should avoid alcoholic beverages approximately 24 hours before their treatment as this can increase the risk of bruising and may result in blood thinning. If possible, blood thinners and anti-inflammatory medications should be ceased approximately two weeks before the appointment. Supplements such as vitamin E, ginkgo biloba, and St. John's Wort should be avoided, along with medications such as ibuprofen, Motrin, Aleve, Advil, and other NSAIDS. Appointments should be scheduled at least two weeks before any special event to avoid bruising and inflammation during this time.

After treatment, patients may notice some redness and tenderness at the injection site. This is normal and can last for a day or two. Patients should also avoid allowing Xeomin to migrate to other areas of the face. This can be done by avoiding massaging or rubbing the injection area for several hours after treatment. Side effects are minimal, but may include drooping of the eyebrows or eyelids. This is temporary and will improve within a few weeks.

Xeomin is the only toxin that does not have a preservative. It is often looked at as a good alternative to those patients who may have a preservative sensitivity or who do not achieve great results from other toxin injections. In theory, the preservative causes the immune system to respond in some patients, breaking down the toxin faster and creating less effect for the patient. Without the preservative, some clients will get longer wear time because their immune system is not attacking the toxin.

Patients who are interested in Xeomin injections or any other injectable treatment available at Seriously Skin are encouraged to contact our team today to schedule a visit. During this time, patients can discuss the advantages and disadvantages of Xeomin and other neuromodulators and determine the best anti-aging solution for their concerns.
