Prejuvenation Aesthetics offers Xeomin in Ashburn, VA. Xeomin (incobotulinumtoxinA) is a prescription cosmetic injectable that softens the moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows, also known as glabellar lines. Xeomin can smoothen the skin and elevate your facial appearance, making you look younger and more pleasant. This is one of the most effective anti-aging treatments for adults up to 65 years of age with prominent frown lines.
What is Xeomin?
Treat Frown Lines with Xeomin
Frown lines, also known as glabellar lines, are the vertical lines that appear between your eyebrows when you frown. When you’re young, these lines fade away when your face returns to normal. However, as you grow older, the continued use of the associated muscles deepens the creases, making them stay etched on your face at all times, making you look older.
Xeomin is a neuromodulator, i.e., a type of cosmetic injectable that can temporarily freeze certain muscles. When injected into the correct facial tissues (in the region above the eyebrows), it temporarily paralyzes the muscles responsible for your frown lines, thereby softening the frown lines for several months. Xeomin’s off-label usage also includes softening forehead lines and the crow’s feet around the eyes.
Xeomin vs. Botox
Both Xeomin and Botox are effective neuromodulators that soften dynamic wrinkles for a few months. However, Xeomin has one unique advantage over Botox — it’s a “naked” botulinum toxin without added proteins, so it prevents the formation of antibody resistance. You may develop tolerance to Botox after some time, but you won’t develop tolerance to Xeomin. Xeomin in Ashburn is often recommended for patients with a long history of neurotoxin usage.

Your Xeomin Experience
Your cosmetic provider will examine your facial skin and discuss your cosmetic goals to curate the ideal treatment plan. They’ll cleanse your skin, apply topical anesthesia, and deliver the Xeomin injection into the strategically chosen injection points. The number of injections depends on your specific goals and treatment areas.
You may experience redness, swelling, irritation, and discomfort for a few days. You may also experience mild bruising for a few days, especially if you’re a smoker. However, the side effects dissipate soon, and there’s no downtime or recovery period. You can resume your daily activities immediately, but you should avoid strenuous workouts for a day.
You’ll start seeing results in 4 days, with continued improvements for a week or two. The results will last for 3 to 6 months, which is slightly longer than Botox and Dysport. You can opt for maintenance treatments at regular intervals to keep the frown lines at bay. Your cosmetic provider will curate the ideal Xeomin treatment frequency for you.
