Learn about neuromodulators such as Xeomin as a wrinkle treatment option in New Orleans, LA
By Dr. Mary Lupo
At the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology, patients in the area of New Orleans, LA can ask about wrinkle treatments that don’t require plastic surgery. With the use of cosmetic injectables, patients can address wrinkles, folds, and fine lines that may be inhibiting their more youthful appearance. Dr. Mary Lupo, Board-certified dermatologist, is excited to offer solutions including neuromodulators such as Xeomin.
Dermatologist describes Xeomin treatment
Xeomin is a neuromodulator like Botox. Xeomin works differently from cosmetic fillers, which are formulated with hyaluronic acid. Neuromodulators are formulated with botulinum toxin type A, a safe and effective injection that can inhibit muscle contractions. When injected into the muscles, it can reduce tension and in turn, smooth the skin of the face to reduce and even eliminate wrinkles in specific areas. Xeomin is one of several neuromodulators available at the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology and provides patients with a treatment option that doesn’t require going “under the knife.”
The process of Xeomin
When patients visit Dr. Mary Lupo and ask about cosmetic injectables, they will be presented with a variety of solutions. Her practice offers the following treatment options:
Patients who want to address dynamic wrinkles and folds caused by muscles may find that neuromodulators are the ideal choice. During an evaluation, our team of professionals will determine if patients are appropriate candidates. Additionally, patients may want to consider using neuromodulators in conjunction with other cosmetic injectables that can be used in a similar manner for a full “liquid face lift.” This provides amazing results. Once patients decide to use neuromodulators to achieve their youthful appearance, they will relax in the treatment chair. The doctor will evaluate the facial area and decide where to strategically place the injections. This is done quickly and easily right in the office. Patients then receive aftercare instructions to ensure results and reduce risks. They can return to their daily activities after treatment.
What are the side effects of Xeomin?
There are few side effects of Xeomin, and they are often short-term if they develop. Common experiences include numbness at the injection site and bruising.
How long does it take for results?
Neuromodulators do not work immediately as dermal fillers do. Instead, the results appear in 3-7 days. Patients then enjoy the results from these injections for several months before they may need to return for reinjection to maintain the results over the course of time. While it is impossible to stop the signs of aging, using cosmetic injectables such as Xeomin can help in slowing the process. This reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, patients can ask about other cosmetic injectables that can treat issues such as volume loss and skin laxity for optimum improvement.
Who is a candidate?
Any adult patient who is interested in reducing the appearance of wrinkles and folds caused by muscle tension may be considered a candidate for Xeomin. We welcome patients to book a consultation appointment with our doctor in New Orleans, LA for an evaluation and to discuss if this is a potential solution for their specific skin concerns. Dr. Lupo has performed injectables on patients ranging in age from 18-85.
How much does Xeomin cost?
Xeomin, along with other neuromodulators and dermal fillers, is priced by the treatment. The areas and severity vary from patient to patient. It is best for patients to ask during their consultation appointment about the expected cost of treatment to get a more accurate quote. Our front office team may also suggest payment plans for multiple treatments to make cosmetic services more affordable for everyone.
