A Popular Botox Alternative With Great Results

A smiling woman in a field | Xeomin Treatments at NYMISXeomin in New York City is as easy as one, two … 11?

By this, we mean that Xeomin helps get rid of the “11 lines” — those two vertical lines that develop between our eyebrows as we age and as we wrinkle our foreheads while concentrating or experiencing some emotion.

Officially known as glabellar lines, it’s one of the human face’s many dynamic, fine lines and wrinkles, which appear over time as our facial muscles contract and relax, contract and relax, contract and relax …

Ultimately, these particular lines begin to look like the number 11. Some people call them frown lines, but they can develop with any and all facial expressions involving the eyebrows.

Want to get rid of them?

Then Xeomin in New York Minimally Invasive Surgery’s comfortable and welcoming clinics is your best bet.

NYC Xeomin Treatment

Xeomin (pronounced ZEE-oh-min) is used the world over in the treatment of a number of health-related issues. Like other products made from the botulinum toxin, it can be useful in the treatment of muscle stiffness, eye disorders, migraines, overactive bladder, and sialorrhea (excessive salivation).

But like its competitor Botox, Xeomin is also used for cosmetic purposes. For example, it has been proven to be successful in reducing the appearance of wrinkles. It works by relaxing muscles; it achieves this effect by blocking the release of certain chemicals.

Xeomin is made by Merz Pharmaceuticals. It’s FDA-approved for the cosmetic treatment of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows.

As the American Academy of Facial Esthetics tells us, “Xeomin (incobotulinumtoxinA) … is made from the bacteria that causes botulism. Botulinum toxin blocks nerve activity in the muscles, causing a temporary reduction in muscle activity.

“Similar to other drugs in this category, including Botox and Dysport, that also have FDA approval for the treatment of facial wrinkles. Now that Xeomin is available and FDA approved, doctors can use it both on-label and off-label to treat the same facial lines treated by Botox and Dysport, including frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles.”

Tens of thousands of people around the world have been treated with Xeomin injections.

It’s your turn.

Xeomin: NYMIS

For Xeomin procedures, New York Minimally Invasive Surgery’s expert and caring staff will take good care of you. Led by board-certified Dr. Marina Kurian, our patient-centric approach should have you feeling at ease before and during the Xeomin treatment and invigorated afterward.

Dr. Kurian can utilize the Xeomin regimen to cosmetically eliminate dynamic wrinkles from the forehead, around the eyes, and between the eyebrows (including those 11 lines!)

Our experience shows that targeting problem areas with Xeomin treatments eliminates wrinkles, leaving the patient with a natural and quite often dramatic improvement in their appearance.

Plus, Xeomin’s effects are apparent within 72 hours after injection. Results peak between four weeks and six weeks, and these are usually sustained for several months in most patients.

Dr. Kurian will inject Xeomin intramuscularly within the areas of focus. The dosage, number of injections, and location of the injections will be determined by the doctor.

Botox vs. Xeomin in NYC

As Byrdie writes, “Botox and Xeomin work by the exact same mechanism, which is blocking the signals from nerves to muscles, causing the muscles to relax and wrinkles to smooth out.”

In that same piece, Byrdie quotes a plastic surgeon who says that the “primary difference between the (Botox and Xeomin) is that Botox has an accompanying, inactive protein, while Xeomin does not have additives. … Foreign accessory proteins are not necessary to the function of the drug.”

Thus, the results are generally the same — i.e, treatment is successful and results are excellent. However, Xeomin has the advantage of not bearing any unnecessary proteins as active ingredients. This may provide some plastic surgery patients with a better treatment plan, especially if they’re prone to allergic reactions.

Side Effects of Xeomin

As with all cosmetic procedures of this type, there is the risk of side effects. The most common are: drooping eyelids, dry eyes, injection site pain, dry mouth, muscle weakness, and neck pain/soreness.

Of course, patients with certain pre-existing conditions may experience botulinum toxin type side effects specific to those ailments. We’ll go over everything with you beforehand.
