Franklin Skin and Laser offers an array of benefits with Xeomin, an advanced cosmetic injectable that targets wrinkles and fine lines with precision and efficacy. Our aesthetic team in Franklin, TN., is committed to providing safe and personalized treatments to help you achieve a more youthful and natural-looking appearance.
As we age, exposure to the sun and environmental damage contribute to the breakdown of collagen and elastin, which causes the skin to lose its elasticity. When this happens, fine lines can form and eventually turn into deep-set wrinkles.
Fine lines and wrinkles can also form from repeated facial expressions, genetics, lack of sleep, major diet changes, stress, and smoking. There are steps you can take to prevent early signs of aging, like neuromodulator injections and living a healthy lifestyle. While we cannot reverse wrinkles, we can certainly make them less visible with Xeomin.
Xeomin® (incobotulinumtoxinA) is a prescription medication injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults. Xeomin contains botulinum toxin type A, a protein purified from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum.
A Solution for Frown Lines
When you squint or frown, the muscles between your eyebrows contract, causing the skin to furrow and fold.
Over time, as your skin ages and loses some of its elasticity, these repeated contractions can cause persistent frown lines. Botulinum toxin type A – the active ingredient in Xeomin– acts on nerve endings in muscles to prevent muscle fibers from contracting. By reducing these contractions, Xeomin can temporarily reduce the lines between your eyebrows.
Xeomin is a neuromodulator that works by temporarily relaxing the facial muscles responsible for wrinkles, frown lines, and crow's feet. The key benefits of Xeomin include:
Xeomin softens and reduces the appearance of dynamic wrinkles caused by repeated facial movements.
Xeomin leaves your facial expressions unaffected, providing a more natural and authentic look.
The treatment is quick, virtually painless, and requires no downtime, making it convenient for your busy schedule.
Xeomin results can last up to 3 to 4 months, helping you enjoy a youthful appearance for an extended period.
Xeomin is FDA-approved and has been extensively tested for its safety and efficacy.
Is Xeomin Right for You?
If you are an adult with moderate to severe glabellar lines, Xeomin may be right for you. Talk to your doctor to discuss the benefits and risks of treatment.
Do not use Xeomin if you are allergic to botulinum toxin or any of the other ingredients in Xeomin. You should also not use Xeomin if you have had an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin product or have a skin infection at the planned injection site.
Book your treatment today!
Before receiving treatment with Xeomin Nashville area patients should tell your injector at Franklin Skin and Laser about any medical conditions, including whether you have a disease that affects your muscles and nerves, have allergies to any botulinum toxin product, or have experienced any side effect from any other botulinum toxin in the past. In addition, tell your clinician about your medical history and all the medicines you take, including prescription and nonprescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements. Especially tell your injector if you have received any other botulinum toxin product in the last four months or in the past. Be sure your injector knows exactly which product(s) you received and when you received them.
Consultations are required for any service at our office. Patient safety is incredibly important to us, and this is where we have dedicated time to get to know you and your skincare goals and review your concerns. During the Nashville Xeomin consultation, we go over a few things to ensure you are a suitable candidate for the procedure.
Dr. Steven Bengelsdorf is a board-certified surgeon of 25+ years whose experience and research have led to his selection of the best facial rejuvenation, injectables, and body contouring treatments. During your consultation, one of our providers will analyze your skin, address your concerns, and determine if you are a good candidate for Xeomin.
What can I expect during treatment?
The treatment itself is normally ten to 20 minutes. After the muscles have been evaluated, we will take clinical photos for documentation.
Once the area has been prepped, Dr. B or one of our nurses will draw several small dots on the treatment area where the needle will be inserted. After the treatment area is mapped out, they will administer the solution to the target areas. Pain level is minimal, as our clients report it feeling like a tiny pinch.
You may begin to see visible smoothing as early as three to four days after injection. The median first onset of effect was less than a week. The results vary from person to person, but you can expect a refreshed and revitalized appearance that lasts for several months. Remember, individual experiences may differ, and our expert team will guide you through the process to achieve the best possible outcome for your unique needs.
What can I expect After the Treatment?
Some clients will get injection site bumps. These will resolve in 20-30 minutes. Bruising is always a possibility. If you happen to bruise, you can come back for a complimentary bruise treatment. You can reduce your risk of bruising by avoiding ibuprofen, aspirin, fish oil, and any blood thinners. There is a small chance that you may develop a slight headache after your treatment. If this happens, you may take Tylenol as directed.
We do not recommend icing or manipulating the area. You should avoid massaging, wearing a hat or headgear for at least 24 hours, and any physical/strenuous activity. Massaging/physical exertion can cause the toxin to spread into unwanted areas, thus altering your results. We also recommend waiting a minimum of six hours before laying down.
On average, clients come every three to four months for Xeomin treatment.
If you have moderate to severe lines/wrinkles, you may be an ideal candidate for Xeomin. To find out if Xeomin is right for you, schedule a consultation with our physician at our Cool Springs location.
