Incobotulinumtoxin A (Xeomin®) is an extremely purified, naturally occurring protein that has the ability to relax the facial muscles to which it is injected, and help disappear moderate to severe frown lines. Xeomin is an FDA approved drug and is similar to BOTOX® and Dysport®, which also uses the Botulinum A protein. Xeomin treatments work by blocking nerve impulses to temporarily relax the muscles that cause wrinkles while giving the skin a refreshed, even and younger appearance. You can expect to see results from Xeomin treatments within 5 days. This relaxation generally lasts for 3 months, and then the treated muscles slowly return to their baseline. To maintain the effects of any wrinkle relaxing treatment, injections should be repeated every three to four months.
Dysport® is approved to be injected into the muscles in the Glabella area (between the eyebrows) which improves the look of moderate to severe lines in between the brows. It can also be injected in additional areas of the face. Dysport® is a quick, easy and effective temporary treatment with little or no downtime. Improvement in the appearance of lines and wrinkles typically begin within 24-48 hours and may increase during the first week after treatment. In order to maintain results, treatments should consistently be performed every 3-4 months.
