Feeling confident in your skin is an important part of aging. If you’re struggling with fine lines and wrinkles, Mitra Tahvildarian, PhD, CFMP, AGNP, or Dr. T, has the solution for you at Sargon Dental in Encino and West Hollywood, California, serving the greater Los Angeles area. Dr. T uses Xeomin® wrinkle reduction injections to relax wrinkles and facial lines. To learn more about how Xeomin can reduce wrinkles, call Sargon Dental, or schedule an appointment online now.
Xeomin is a highly purified neurotoxin that reduces wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing the muscles underneath them. It completely blocks nerve activity in the muscles it’s injected into. When your muscles can’t contract, the skin that sits atop them relaxes and softens.
FDA-approved to treat moderate to severe frown lines, Xeomin is similar to popular injectables Botox® and Dysport®.
What separates Xeomin from other neuromodulators is that it contains a “naked” form of botulinum toxin. It has no additives or extra proteins, which can help prevent resistance to your injections over time.
Like Botox and Dysport, Xeomin treats dynamic wrinkles. These wrinkles develop from repeated muscle movement. Some of the most common types of wrinkles that Dr. T at Sargon Dental uses Xeomin to treat include:
Xeomin doesn’t treat volume loss, which causes skin laxity. If you have loose, saggy skin, Dr. T offers Radiesse® and other dermal fillers for static wrinkle reduction.
Xeomin injections should only take a few minutes, depending on your treatment areas. Most people notice improvements in the tone and texture of their skin about four days after their first injection. However, it takes about 10 days to see optimal results from your wrinkle reduction treatment.
Because Xeomin contains no additives or accessory proteins, you’re less prone to allergic reactions than other neuromodulators. The Xeomin formula isolates the active therapeutic ingredient of the botulinum toxin A molecule for fewer side effects.
The most common side effects of Xeomin are minor pain, redness, or swelling at the injection site. Any discomfort should disappear within a few days of your treatment.
Like Botox, Xeomin treatments typically last for about 3-6 months. This pure form of botulinum toxin gradually wears over time, but you can preserve your results with regular maintenance injections.
Xeomin is a safe, effective wrinkle reduction treatment for aging skin. To schedule an appointment with Dr. T today, call Sargon Dental, or book online.
