XEOMIN® is a cosmetic treatment similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® that can greatly reduce the appearance of facial lines, creases, and wrinkles. Following a round of tiny injections into specifically targeted areas of the face, patients typically experience a more youthful and relaxed appearance. This result is due to a reduction in hyperactive expression lines that can cause such common concerns as frown lines, forehead and brow creases, crow’s feet, and depressed corners of the mouth.
While the effects of XEOMIN® are temporary, patients can expect results within days that will last anywhere from 3 to 6 months. An additional benefit however, is the potential for prolonged results due to the ability of the body’s collagen to fill in the treated areas. Regardless of the length of time results may last, XEOMIN® can prevent lines from deepening over time, and delay new lines from forming.
As a board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Atkin performs each XEOMIN® procedure. Informed by years of experience, she takes each patient’s muscular structure and unique facial expressions into account as she develops the appropriate treatment method. As Dr. Atkin strives to create natural-looking results that last longer, she often combines XEOMIN® with other laser resurfacing and skin tightening procedures as part of an all-encompassing anti-aging strategy.
