Fine facial lines and wrinkles are the first signs of aging. Thanks to modern science, this natural occurring process doesn’t have to show though. Xeomin is the newest treatment dermatologists have to offer patients to combat wrinkles and smooth skin. Much like its predecessor, Botox, Xeomin’s active ingredient is the purified neurotoxin botulinum toxin A. It is used to treat muscle spasms, abnormal neck pain and its most popular use, wrinkles.
Cosmetic anti-wrinkle injections, such as Xeomin and Botox are used to paralyze facial muscles and smooth out wrinkles. Xeomin, does not have any of the addictives Botox contains, such as complexing proteins. Since the body typically resists to any foreign substances, the likelihood of this occurring decreases. This un-complex version of Botox sends interrupts the line of communications between the nerve and the muscle tissue. When this happens, the physical corresponding response stops the muscle from contracting. This does not mean you can no long make facial expressions, instead your body will simply stop making repeated micro-movements. Those micro-movements are what form the undesireable lines along the face overtime. Ultimately the chance of developing more deep and hard to treat wrinkles will decrease and the smoother your complexion will be.
Injections such as Xeomin, have recently been sought after as a preventative solution for younger people. The trend is gaining momentum as more and more young patients are requesting injections of botulinum to avoid wrinkles from developing in the first place. Xeomin is becoming a viable competitor for Botox in treating wrinkles effectively and with great results.
