If you are considering injectable wrinkle relaxers, you may be wondering how long your results will last and how often you’ll need XEOMIN. Continue reading to discover more about this anti-aging treatment and determine if XEOMIN is the right choice for you.
What exactly are frown lines?
A common misconception about frown lines — thanks to their name — is that they are associated with the lips or mouth. In reality, frown lines refer to the vertical lines that appear between the eyebrows when scowling or frowning. Other names used to describe frown lines include:
- Worry lines
- Glabellar lines
- 1, 11, or 111 lines
When we’re younger, these lines come and go with our expressions. Over time, however, expressive lines — known as dynamic lines — often begin to linger even with the face at rest. At this point, many people turn to injectable wrinkle relaxers, such as BOTOX® and Dysport®, to address dynamic lines and restore a smoother and more youthful facial appearance.
How does XEOMIN smooth away frown lines?
XEOMIN is an injectable wrinkle relaxer that works to smooth out the moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows by temporarily paralyzing the underlying muscle responsible for the visible surface lines. When injected, XEOMIN blocks the signals from nerves to the muscles, causing them to relax. As a result, the lines associated with the contraction of those muscles also smooth out.
How long does XEOMIN last for worry lines?
XEOMIN typically offers results that can last up to 3 months, which may vary from person to person. If you notice a return of your frown lines earlier than expected, repeat XEOMIN injections can be administered to maintain your smoother appearance. Keep in mind that, like other injectables, the results of XEOMIN are not immediate and can take up to a week to fully manifest. During your initial consultation at The Face & Body Center in Flowood, MS, our knowledgeable team will help you plan a treatment schedule tailored to your needs.
