For most people, the aging process is very gradual. It is not something that you notice immediately when you look in the mirror. In fact, it is usually not until someone points out the fact that you look older now than you did when they last saw you, or when you compare your current appearance to an old photograph, that you realize just how much your face has aged.
The signs of aging are just about the same for everyone on the planet. As we age, we begin to develop permanent wrinkles on our forehead, around our mouth, around our nose and on the side of our eyes. These wrinkles are referred to as dynamic wrinkles. This is because they become more apparent when we contract or relax the muscles in our face. To some extent, dynamic wrinkles can be treated by cosmetic surgery. However, not everyone is ready or willing to spend the money, deal with the recovery time or face the risks that come with plastic surgery. If this is true in your case, then you are one of the millions of people on the planet who may be a good candidate for XEOMIN®.
XEOMIN® is an injectable that shares some of the same characteristics as the popular anti-aging product known as BOTOX®. XEOMIN® works by targeting the nerve signals in the muscles in the treated area. It temporary relaxes these signals, preventing a person from being able to contract these muscles. As a result, the fine lines and wrinkles on the face become less noticeable.
One of the primary advantages of using XEOMIN® as opposed to using BOTOX® is that the product does not have any additives. The solution that is used is pure, and so it becomes difficult for a patient to develop antibodies to it.
A good candidate for XEOMIN® is a person who is tired of looking older than they feel. They are tired of dealing with forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, frown lines and other issues. They are also people who understand how the product works, what it can do for their face and what it cannot do for their face. They have realistic expectations for the treatment and are emotionally stable enough to deal with the results of the treatment.
XEOMIN® has proven that it works in reducing fine lines and wrinkles. It is a procedure that is being performed in more than 20 countries around the world. During the procedure, the solution is injected into the site that needs to be treated. Most patients barely feel it entering into their face.
While BOTOX® and XEOMIN® share some characteristics, the products should never be used interchangeably. For this reason, you must let our medical professional know if you have recently had BOTOX® treatments before using XEOMIN®.
XEOMIN® has proven itself as an effective anti-aging weapon. In the hands of a trained specialist, it can take years off a person’s face, giving them the confidence and the vitality they need to be their best.
