Patients seeking facial enhancement when fine lines and wrinkles develop may be interested in finding out non-invasive solutions for addressing these unwanted signs of aging. Patients often learn that procedures such as a face lift can provide amazing results. However, many with mild to moderate signs of aging are not appropriate candidates for surgeries such as this and may do better with temporary solutions such as injectables.
Injectables come in a wide range of treatments including dermal fillers, collagen stimulators, and neuromodulators. Neuromodulators are best for folds and wrinkles that have developed due to muscle contraction. The muscles of the face that move can create dynamic wrinkles such as crow’s feet, forehead folds, and glabellar lines between the eyebrows. By limiting the muscle contractions, patients will see a more youthful face and enjoy the true benefits of neuromodulators.
Xeomin® is one of three neuromodulators available at the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery, along with Dysport® and Botox®. Xeomin® can be used as an alternative, and can be utilized in conjunction with dermal fillers as well as collagen stimulators for a full “liquid face lift.” Xeomin® is safe and FDA-approved for cosmetic use and is highly desired by patients interested in achieving smoother skin without the risks associated with plastic surgeries.
Xeomin® is a popular choice for many patients. Dr. Cheryl Burgess is a board certified dermatologist who wants to ensure her patients are appropriate candidates for treatment. She encourages them to make a consultation appointment at her practice before having injections done to determine if neuromodulators such as Xeomin® are the best choice. Some patients may benefit more from other injectables such as dermal fillers or collagen stimulators, but only a professional can help patients make an educated decision regarding which is best for them. Every patient is different so treatment plans must be made for each patent’s unique needs and desires.
