Is your skin showing signs of aging, such as fine lines or wrinkles around your eyes, lips, or across your forehead? If so, injectables may be a solution to help you find a more youthful appearance without invasive plastic surgery.
At Rodgers Dermatology in Frisco, Texas, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Timothy Rodgers uses a variety of injectables to help patients find fuller, more youthful skin across their face. Depending on the patient’s individual needs, Dr. Rodgers may recommend the use of Xeomin instead of other popular injectables.
What is Xeomin?
Much like Botox®, Xeomin is an injectable that blocks muscle movements, softening the skin across the face and décolletage. For patients with fine lines and wrinkles, Xeomin relaxes the areas of injection, providing the appearance of smoother, more youthful skin. Xeomin may also be used for a variety of other conditions, including a gummy smile, Bell’s Palsy, jaw reduction or definition, and more.
This minimally-invasive anti-aging treatment is available in our office and recommended by board-certified dermatologist Dr. Timothy Rodgers.
As with other injectables, there are some common questions that our patients in our Frisco, Texas office have when considering cosmetic dermatology treatments for fine lines and wrinkles. View some of the most common questions about Xeomin, and contact us with any additional questions.
In the debate of Botox vs. Xeomin, neither is better than the other. Rather, Dr. Rodgers may choose to use Xeomin instead of Botox to achieve a more youthful appearance based on the individual needs of the patient. During an initial consultation, Dr. Rodgers will review the patient’s goals and create a personalized treatment plan that may include either Botox or Xeomin, or a combination of the two, to achieve those goals.
Xeomin is used similarly to Botox and Dysport by relaxing the muscles around the injection site. As a botulinum toxin A, Xeomin blocks the nerves from communicating between the muscles, causing the relaxation of those muscles and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
At Rodgers Dermatology, Dr. Timothy Rodgers may recommend Xeomin injections to address a variety of skin concerns, such as:
- Crow’s feet
- Lateral eyebrows
- Gummy smile
- Bunny lines
- Lip lines
- Décolletage lines
- Excessive sweating
While the individual results will depend on the patient, Xeomin injections typically last for approximately three months. In some cases, the patient may experience the injections lasting longer or shorter than three months. Dr. Rodgers can provide a clearer approximation based on the patient’s medical history and the area of injection.
Xeomin injections typically require three to seven days to respond, with patients typically seeing full results approximately two weeks after the injection.
