Dr. Jason Stubbs and his team at Signature Surgical Arts and Med Spa offer Xeomin® treatments to diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the face to the residents of greater Grand Rapids and Holland, Jenison or Grand Haven, Michigan and the surrounding communities, who are searching for a way to revitalize their face.
What Is Xeomin®?
Xeomin®, also known as incobotulinumtoxinA, is a prescription medication used in facial aesthetics to improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyes and other areas on your face.
Xeomin® made by Merz Pharmaceuticals was already approved by the FDA for use in adults with cervical dystonia and blepharospasm and is now used to treat those unwanted lines and wrinkles on the face.
Benefits of Xeomin®
Xeomin® has the ability to smooth out and relax wrinkles between the eyes, beside the eyes and on the forehead. It has also been proven to prevent these lines from etching deeper into the skin and from developing new ones. Other benefits include:
- Xeomin® is “naked”, meaning there are no additives which may lessen a patient’s likelihood of developing antibodies to it, reducing the possibility of it not having its desired effect
- May diminish tension and migraine headaches
- Quick in-office treatment that you could have done during your lunch break
- Reduces excessive sweating in selected areas for hyperhidrosis
What Is the Procedure for Xeomin®?
During the treatment, Dr. Stubbs may use a topical anesthetic or a cold pack to reduce any discomfort; he will then inject Xeomin® into the muscles in your forehead or other parts of the face. The procedure will usually take about 10 to 20 minutes depending on the number of injection sites. You should start to see results within three to seven days.
Xeomin® is classified as a “neuromodulator,” a drug that relaxes targeted facial muscles. When your muscles contract, it causes the skin to wrinkle. By simply injecting Xeomin® into the muscles, your muscles are able to relax taking away the wrinkles. The effects can last for three to four months and can be maintained with occasional follow-up treatments. By maintaining treatments, you will not have to experience a reversal of the effects.
Following the quick in-office procedure, patients can resume normal daily activities, no recovery period necessary. You can expect a little redness around the injection sites, but that will clear up quickly and can be covered with makeup in the meantime.
You should start to notice results within three to seven days. However, the best results are seen after two weeks. You can maintain the results of Xeomin® with occasional follow-up treatments.
How Much Does Xeomin® Cost in Greater Grand Rapids?
The price of Xeomin® is determined on a case-by-case basis depending on the number of injections needed for each person. Pricing and financing will be discussed during your consultation at the Signature Surgical Arts and Med Spa.
