Turning back the clock with Xeomin Treatment in New OrleansBy Dr. Mary Lupo
About muscles and wrinklesThe aging process is complex and many factors contribute to facial lines and wrinkles. One of the most common areas affected is around the eye when frowning or squinting contracts the muscle every time. Overtime, the constant muscle movement can permanently etch in lines on the skin
How Xeomin helpsXeomin is a neuromodulator, meaning it reduces the nerve signals that cause muscles to contract. As the muscles become relaxed the skin over them becomes smoother. Neuromodulators are most effective for dynamic wrinkles that disappear when your face is completely relaxed. There is evidence that early treatment can actually help prevent wrinkles by keeping muscles relaxed.
Other neuromodulator optionsWhile you may not recognize the Xeomin name, you are probably familiar with a similar product: Botox. These formulas, along with Dysport, are very similar and all of them achieve excellent results.
We use a variety of top-quality products in our practice, because every patient is unique. Your skin is not exactly like anyone else’s, and so it will not react to treatments exactly the same. Some patients indicate a preference for a specific product. If you aren’t sure which is best for you, our board-certified dermatologists will discuss your options and help you make smart skincare choices.
