In the past year of huge transitions that took many people out of their office cubicles and placed them at their kitchen table in front of a screen filled with familiar faces, we witnessed something interesting. Seeing themselves more often than they ever did before, millions of adults of all different age groups started scheduling consultations for everything from injectables to facelift surgery. In our Sherman Oaks vein specialty office, we don’t overlook the value of beauty. We’ve been keeping quite busy serving people in the Los Angeles area who wish to address certain cosmetic concerns without surgery. It’s hard to believe that there are people out there who aren’t already getting Xeomin, but we meet them all the time. So, we’re going to do a little meet-and-greet with this treatment right here.
Xeomin As A Powerful Anti-Aging Solution
We cannot go through life without making various facial expressions. To do so would not even look natural, let alone feel good. Yet, every squint, laugh, smile, and frown leaves a mark. At first, when the skin has plenty of collagen and elastin and the muscles haven’t become chronically tensed, these marks disappear when the face is at rest. Eventually, they deepen and do not go away. That’s where wrinkle-reduction treatment comes in. This FDA-approved drug is like “cosmetic denervation.” It is called such because Xeomin is a neuromodulator. It smooths lines and creases by blunting the muscle-movements that cause them.
Are Neuromodulators Safe?
Xeomin is made of purified Botulinum toxin, which can be a potent substance. What patients need to understand about Botulinum toxin is that it was first a therapeutic drug. It was used clinically for many years to treat muscle disorders before cosmetic use was a sparkle in someone’s eye. But eventually it was. Two someone’s, actually, doctors Alistair and Jean Caruthers, who had been using Botulinum toxin to treat painful blepharospasm, muscle spasms around the eye. What they noticed was that some of their patients reported seeing a decrease in forehead and frown lines after their injectable treatment. Therefore, cosmetic neuromodulator treatment was born of a sweet little accident and quickly became a world-renowned anti-aging solution. The preparation and delivery method keep the active ingredient within a few millimeters of the injection points.
