They can also be used as a preventative measure against wrinkles in the future. If you are interested in anti-wrinkle injections, you should try Xeomin.
However, just like any other treatment, there are bound to be side effects, so that does include Xeomin? To find out, continue reading the article.
What Is Xeomin?
Xeomin is a famous anti-wrinkle injection that has been available for over several years now. It has been used by many celebrities and athletes who want to maintain a youthful look without going under the knife. Removing wrinkles no longer need undergoing too much trouble with cosmetic surgeries.
This particular anti-wrinkle injection is clinically proven to improve the appearance of wrinkles and folds. It also helps to reduce the appearance of under-eye bags, crow’s feet, and dark circles. Xeomin has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and European Medicines Agency (EMA).
Xeomin, Initially Made For Medical Purposes
Xeomin was initially made for medical purposes, and it has been used to treat many different conditions like muscle spasms, migraines, certain eye muscle conditions, and even chronic pain. The use of Xeomin for cosmetic procedures wasn’t that long ago, and it was really made for medical purposes.
The use of Xeomin in cosmetic procedures may have resulted from the need for a safe alternative to Botox injections. These injections are commonly done with Botox because it is FDA approved and considered safe when injected correctly by a doctor. The FDA requires that Botox be injected into muscles where it won’t affect other bodily functions.
How Does Xeomin Work?
Xeomin is a neurotoxin that the FDA has approved for treating glabellar lines (frown lines) and perioral lines (smile lines) and the improvement of crow’s feet. It works by inhibiting acetylcholinesterase, an enzyme that breaks down acetylcholine.
Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter that plays a crucial role in learning and memory, muscle contractions, regulation of mood, and pain perception.
Xeomin Uses Botulinum Toxin
Xeomin uses a botulinum toxin, which is not just any neurotoxin. It’s the most potent type of neurotoxin produced by Clostridium botulinum.
This same toxin causes the disease botulism, which is a potentially fatal form of food poisoning. The toxin works by blocking nerve impulses to muscles, causing flaccid paralysis. The most common symptoms of botulism are double vision, drooping eyelids, slurred speech, and muscle weakness.
Botulism is life-threatening, and so if not addressed quickly, it will cause death.
So Why Use Botulinum Toxin?
The face is one of the most expressive parts of our body. It’s capable of expressing emotions like happiness, sadness, anger, and many more. When you smile or frown, your facial muscles move, and wrinkle lines form on your face in seconds.
The wrinkles are caused by the natural process of facial muscles, which contract and relax over time. These muscles pull on the skin at different points on your face, causing lines to form and wrinkles to appear. The more you move these facial muscles around, the more wrinkles you’ll get.
Some people start to worry about how wrinkles will affect their appearance when they start aging. The most visible signs of aging are wrinkles that appear around age 30-40. These lines will continue to grow with age until they’re too deep for creams or other treatments to help them fade away.
There’s No Way To Stop Your Facial Muscles Consciously
No matter what you do, you cannot go continuously and consciously stop the movement of your facial muscles. It’s not just possible, and if you start talking to someone, you are bound to make a facial expression. It’s hard to maintain a poker face.
To physically prevent your facial muscle from moving, we need to find a way to freeze them in place. So what other tool to use to freeze them in place other than botulinum toxin?
Botulinum toxin paralyzes the muscles, causing them to relax and resulting in flaccid paralysis. The effect of the toxin lasts from three to six months, depending on how much was injected into the body and where it was injected.
As long as the Xeomin with botulinum toxin is injected in the right place, you shouldn’t have problems with botulism. None at all.
Are There Side Effects Of Xeomin?
If your facial muscles are paralyzed for a long time, there will be side effects, right? Yes, you may experience some side effects. Here are some side effects that you may experience from Xeomin.
The most common side effects of Xeomin are headache, bruising at the injection site, redness or swelling around the injection site, itching or burning sensation at the injection site, pain when swallowing, drooping eyelids, or dry eyes after treatment. These side effects can last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks.’
You Can Prevent These Side Effects
Preventing these side effects is easier than you think. Simply find the best Xeomin provider you can find. The better the provider, the better they can professionally administer the treatment, significantly reducing the risks of side effects.
To help yourself find the right provider, check some reviews on their sites and research their staff. When you hunt for the right provider, talk to them about their previous experience, ask for before and after photos, and ask about their license. They should be able to provide them to you without problems.
Also, you have the responsibility to follow instructions. Follow your provider’s instructions carefully, reducing the risks of complications from the Xeomin injections.
