Frown lines are common among adults of all ages and backgrounds. They occur when the face contracts to form an expression repeatedly over time.
Those who are plagued by persistent frown lines may want to consider Botox or Xeomin as a solution. What do these types of cosmetic injections do, and how can they benefit you?
This guide will give you everything you need to know about these two neuromodulators.
Before you are ready to move forward with a treatment for your frown lines, you may be wondering exactly what these substances are. Both Botox and Xeomin are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as neuromodulators.
A neuromodulator is a chemical that blocks neurotransmitter chemicals. When Botox and Xeomin get injected into your facial tissue, they block the release of neurotransmitters responsible for muscle contractions. In essence, they prevent muscle contraction from occurring and effectively stop wrinkles from forming or worsening.
How? The neuromodulator forces the muscles underneath the skin and the skin itself to relax. As both begin to soften, the appearance of fine lines, such as frown lines, is diminished.
Whether you decide to go with Botox or Xeomin, the results are temporary. Most of the time, these cosmetic injectables will reduce the appearance of your frown lines for about three to four months.
After that time passes, you may notice fine lines appearing again. Most patients make regular follow-up appointments to maintain their results and prevent new wrinkles.
Before you come into our med spa, you should have an idea of what to expect from the injectable process. Everything will start with a consultation where we will assess your frown lines and help you determine which neuromodulator is right for you.
From there, you can expect your Glo & Spa-rkle provider to follow a few simple steps to achieve excellent results:
Cosmetic injectables are minimally invasive. What’s more, the needles for Botox and Xeomin are extremely fine and cause minimal to no pain or discomfort. Because you may only feel a slight sting, any anesthetic is generally not required for this type of procedure.
Once your treatment is complete, you are free to go about the rest of your day as usual. However, make sure to avoid strenuous activity for the first couple of days following the injections. You may also want to apply a cold compress to speed up the healing of any injection site swelling or bruising.
