Try Xeomin® as an Effective Botox® Alternative

beautiful mature smiling woman with clear, smooth skin.

Botox® is a brand name which has become well-known for its ability to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, facial lines and other signs of aging. Many people may not be aware of Botox® alternatives that may offer similar, if not better, age-defying results in treating moderate to severe wrinkles. In particular, FDA-approved Xeomin® has been making its mark in recent years as an effective go-to alternative to Botox®. While Xeomin’s® rising popularity was driven in large by demand from those who became immune to Botox®, the injectable’s effectiveness has made it a viable alternative in its own right.

Based on both its use for those who’ve become immune to Botox® and for its wrinkle-reducing efficacy, Naples, Florida-based Tru Glō Medspa includes Xeomin® among its arsenal of minimally invasive injectable wrinkle treatments.

 

What is Xeomin® and How Does it Differ from Botox®?

Like Botox®, Xeomin® is a muscle relaxant made from the botulism toxin that reduces the look of wrinkles and age lines by blocking the nerve signals to the underlying muscles. Unlike injectable fillers that work by filling in the spaces caused by wrinkles, these botulism-based injectables ease the muscle tension ultimately responsible for the line formations. While the two botulism-based injectable treatments are nearly indistinguishable from each other—the main difference is the absence of certain accessory proteins, which allows Xeomin® to skirt around any Botox®-related immunity build-up.

Other than the immunity related variance between these two injectables, the most noteworthy difference is that patients treated with Xeomin® tend to feel less tightness in the injection areas than those treated with Botox®. In a double-blind study comparing the two, doctors and patients could not tell the difference between those treated with Botox® and those treated with Xeomin®.

Tru Glō Medspa primarily utilizes Xeomin® and other botulism-based injectables to treat the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines.

The wrinkle-reducing effects of Xeomin® generally become most noticeable within a few weeks and should last for a few months. After this time, additional treatments will likely be needed to maintain the desired results.

Get Cheeky This Summer With Tru Glō Medspa’s Restylane® Lyft Treatment

If you have deep wrinkling around your mouth and excessive sagging skin around your cheeks consider going deep to bolster skin volume to add fullness to the cheeks and mid face area, which will also help reduce prominent wrinkling around the mouth. Restylane® Lyft is not only the deepest dermal filler of the Restylane® product line, but also the most volume inducing due to the larger size of its hyaluronic acid gel particles.

The increase and deepening of wrinkles around the mouth and nose, along with the sagging and loss of definition of the cheek areas can be a natural result of aging. As we age, collagen and protein in the skin breaks down and the natural fat surrounding the cheekbone deteriorates. A time passes, the sagging skin and hollow cheek affect becomes more prominent, as does the deepening of those distinctive lines around your mouth known as “laugh lines,” “puppet lines,” “marionette lines,” or just “smile lines,” but technically referred to as “nasolabial folds.”

Dermal Fillers Effective Means for Adding Volume, Easing Wrinkles

Injectable dermal fillers are an easy, effective, non-surgical means for replacing lost skin volume in the face, and for displacing those deepening facial lines. The Restylane® line of dermal fillers are also natural, as they consist of injectable gels containing hyaluronic acid, an organic sugar generated by the body and used for lubricating joints, muscles and skin.

Formerly branded as Perlane®, Restylane® Lyft was developed specifically to treat moderate to severe wrinkles, folds, depressed scars, and sagging cheek volume around the nose and mouth. Other Restylane® dermal fillers are used for medium to smaller depth wrinkles and volume loss. Restylane® Lyft is the “first and only FDA-approved filler to provide lift to cheeks and add volume to correct and smooth nasolabial folds.” As with the other Restylane® dermal fillers, Restylane® Lyft is minimally invasive, has few side effects, and little downtime.

Restylane® Lyft Procedure and Results

The Restylane® Lyft procedure consist of injections into the targeted areas, which are usually pre-numbed with a topical anesthetic and/or ice. Patient comfort during the procedure is also enhanced by a small amount of lidocaine, which is included in the Restylane® Lyft gel. The procedure generally takes between 15 to 40 minutes, depending upon number of injection sites, and some results may be noticed almost immediately. After the injections the hyaluronic acid will continue to work within the skin to attract moisture and additionally boost skin volume and elasticity, with full results generally noticeable within one to two weeks after treatment. Overall, results may vary among patients, and most Restylane® treatment plans are customized based on the individual’s aesthetic needs and goals.
