We are happy to provide XEOMIN® treatment as an alternative to BOTOX®. This product has been used in the States since 2010, though men and women in other countries have been treated with this wrinkle-reducer since 2005.
XEOMIN® is a neuromodulator that works in a similar fashion to other products in its class: it relaxes muscle contractions that lead to frown lines and other signs of aging.
While the product shares similarities with predecessors, there are patients who find they achieve better results with XEOMIN® than with other anti-aging injectables. During a consultation with Dr. Lombardi, you can discover what this treatment can do for you.
Who Chooses Xeomin?
Many men and women enjoy the benefits of today’s wrinkle-reducing treatments. A quick visit to our Tampa office during your lunch hour is all that is needed to turn back the hands of time on your facial appearance.
Typically, 10 to 20 small injections produce gorgeous results in which lines around the eyes and on the forehead are smoothed. Due to the relaxing effect on contracted muscles, XEOMIN® can also be a wonderful solution to heavy brows.
One of the differences between XEOMIN® and BOTOX® is that the newer product does not have a protein coating around the active ingredient. For this reason, some patients do notice that they respond better to XEOMIN® treatment.
What to Expect
Injectable anti-aging treatments are typically well tolerated by most patients. To improve comfort, we may apply cold packs to the treatment area before beginning injections. Using a tiny needle, medication is applied to the muscles just beneath the skin.
Because XEOMIN® works in a manner different from dermal fillers, results tend to become more noticeable in the days that follow treatment. Though some people may see an improved appearance when they leave our office, the onset of relaxation occurs gradually. About a week after treatment, the full smoothing effect reaches its peak. Brows look lifted and the eyes more open, wrinkles on the forehead reduce or disappear completely, and frown lines go away.
While the facial muscles are more relaxed, our patients do not lose their ability to show emotions using facial expressions. Dr. Lombardi is a skilled practitioner who achieves beautifully natural results through the strategic injection of the right dosage of medication. The rejuvenation reached with XEOMIN® can last up to four months and it can be maintained with periodic touch-ups.
