Xeomin in Beverly Hills
Consultation: 30 Min
Procedure: 15 Min
Duration of Results: 3 – 5 Months
Wrinkles form — especially on the delicate skin of our faces — whether we want them to or not. In most cases, the facial expressions we make every day will stress our skin and, over time, these lines that only appear faintly when you laugh or frown will begin to deepen and become permanent even when your face is at rest. Of course, the solution is not to stop smiling and laughing! These symptoms can seem inevitable but, in reality, they are easily treatable through a variety of methods. And one of the best ways to smooth fine lines and stop new ones from forming is Xeomin.
Xeomin is one of a class of neuromodulators — we’re guessing you know the name of the other one; it starts with a “B” — that can instantaneously minimize lines and furrows around the eyes, providing lasting results. The treatment is ideal for the delicate skin around and between the eyes and is a safe, effective and well-understood treatment. When you have your Xeomin procedure performed by an expert, like Dr. David Mashhadian at Rodeo Surgical Art, you can have outstanding results which also look very natural and, most importantly, highlight your most beautiful feature, your eyes.
How does Xeomin work?
Xeomin, like other neuromodulators in its class, achieves its results by temporarily blocking messages to treated muscles and arresting their movement. The immediate effect of this suspension of muscle activity is a smoothing of surface skin, which helps you look much younger. Another benefit of this form of treatment is that, with reduced muscle activity, these lines and furrows will not deepen or become more advanced. As a direct result of having Xeomin, you can avoid more invasive forms of treatment, in many cases, for years. While Xeomin is not a permanent solution to wrinkles, it is a highly effective and lasting answer to facial aging symptoms.
How does Xeomin produce such wonderful results? The answer is simple. Xeomin is the result of many advancements in the manufacturing process of neuromodulators, which deliver a very pure substance to your doctor to administer. Xeomin is free of filler ingredients, leaving you with only the compounds in the treatment which will benefit your skin — nothing else! These factors make Xeomin a much safer and more effective treatment when compared to comparable neuromodulators. With Xeomin, you can have outstanding results with supreme safety — as well as convenience! However, it is ultimately the skill of your injector that will determine your final results.
Does Xeomin have any risks?
All treatments have risks, including Xeomin. But Xeomin’s risks are very small and should not prevent you from enjoying its tremendous benefits. So that you are fully informed about your treatment, you should know that some patients may experience the following symptoms after their Xeomin treatment: a headache; sensitivity around their injection sites; dry mouth; or pain at the site of treatment or in the neck. These side effects are very rare and even more rare are vision problems after treatment. Also, some patients may be allergic to the injectable. Dr. Mashhadian takes patient safety extremely seriously. He will explain both the risks and benefits of your Xeomin treatment during your consultation and answer any questions you have about it, in full. Only when you are fully satisfied with the details of your treatment and with your consent will the doctor proceed.
Will Xeomin change my facial expressions?
Many patients are concerned that a neuromodulator treatment, like Xeomin, will negatively alter their facial expressions or, even worse, “freeze” their face. This is a very common and completely understandable misconception about the treatment. Yes, Xeomin reduces aging symptoms by limiting the movements of muscles responsible for these lines. But, Dr. Mashhadian — based on his significant, direct experience administering the treatment — will deliver only the precise quantities of Xeomin needed to the locations where it will improve your look most. A beautifully relaxed expression — not a motionless face — is the ultimate outcome. Also, it’s important to note that Xeomin is not a permanent treatment. If for any reason you are unhappy with your appearance, you can discontinue Xeomin immediately and, in a couple of months, you will have your pre-treatment look back.
Am I a candidate for Xeomin?
Xeomin is a powerful and effective treatment but it may not be right for you. Xeomin is intended to improve specific facial again symptoms. If you have any of the following conditions, schedule an in-person consultation now with Dr. Mashhadian to learn more about Xeomin.
- You have horizontal forehead lines
- You have creases between your eyebrows (“frown lines” or “11” lines)
- You have begun to notice small wrinkles which fan out from the corners of your eyes (“crow’s feet”)
Xeomin can also help improve additional concerns you may be struggling with. For example, if have a drooping brow line or you have what you consider “excess gums” ruining your smile, Xeomin can help. While these uses of Xeomin are not FDA-approved, you can still enjoy treatment with safety and results using Xeomin to improve these concerns. Dr. Mashhadian will only recommend and perform procedures which are safe, so discuss these issues with Dr. Mashhadian in your consultation. He may recommend alternatives that can also help.
Also, Xeomin has a few contraindications, which may exclude specific individuals from having the treatment. Contraindications for Xeomin include:
- Muscular conditions, such as Lou Gehrig’s disease
- Negative side effects from a previous neuromodulator treatment
- Respiratory problems, such as asthma
- Issues with excess bleeding
- Problems swallowing
- Pregnancy or breastfeeding
If you are affected by any of these concerns, you can wait for them to resolve or ask Dr. Mashhadian for alternative treatments you can have right away.
You may have Xeomin as an individual treatment or in combination with other treatments if you have more severe symptoms or want more dramatic results. Xeomin pairs exceptionally well with other skin revitalization treatments or procedures, such as fillers or a brow lift. Dr. Mashhadian will always have your broader aesthetic goals in mind when planning your course of treatment and will propose the best options to achieve your desired look.
What will happen during my Xeomin procedure?
Xeomin is an exceptionally convenient and comfortable treatment to have. Dr. Mashhadian will deliver the precise, pre-determined amounts of Xeomin to your concern areas, via injection, after cleansing the treatment areas, in what most patients find a very tolerable procedure. The needle used is very small, so any possible discomfort is minimized. In addition, your procedure will also be very fast, because of Dr. Mashhadian’s profound understanding of facial anatomy and his prior assessment of which muscles to treat to give you the most beautiful results quickly. You can have Xeomin in as little as a few minutes, with no downtime, and immediately return to whatever life has in store for you.
Recovering From Your Xeomin Treatment
One of the marvelous benefits of a Xeomin treatment is the almost complete absence of a recovery period. The first day after your treatment, Dr. Mashhadian will ask you to avoid any strenuous activity, since there is the very small chance that it could cause a disruption to the precise placement of Xeomin in your concern area. But you will not have to take any time off from work or play to recover and you won’t have any other restrictions on your activities, either. Most patients show no visible signs of having had treatment, although a very few will have some mild swelling and bruising where they have had their injections. Not to worry, these symptoms are extremely short-lived and, if you wish, you can easily hide them with makeup. Few treatments offer the results that Xeomin does with so few downsides.
The Beauty of Your Xeomin Results
You will see your Xeomin results right away. Most patients will see improvements in as few as five to seven days. Some will even see immediate improvements. For most, the full benefit of Xeomin will be readily apparent a few weeks after treatment, when any side effects have subsided and the injectable has reached its full effect. You will then get to enjoy much smoother skin with an attractively relaxed expression, that will help you look rested, alive and ready for anything. Best yet, your results will last for months before you will need any touch-ups.
To maintain your new beautiful look, schedule a follow-up appointment with Dr. Mashhadian about three months after your treatment. Depending on how your body has responded to treatment, you can have a touch-up then or plan when your next office visit will be. Arranging and adhering to your follow-up schedule will ensure you can enjoy your younger and refreshed new look without any interruption!
How long will my Xeomin results last?
Every patient is unique and so are their results. Your results may last longer than other patients who have had the same amount of the injectable. However, on average, you can expect up to four months of rejuvenation before you will begin to notice any changes in your treatment area. You don’t have to lose any of the gains you’ve made in your appearance, however. A touch-up is as fast and effective as your initial treatment and will allow you to maintain your look almost indefinitely.
