forehead wrinkle treatment dermatologist alexandriaEveryone gets wrinkles at some point in their life from a combination of repetitive muscle movement and loss of elasticity. As we age, our bodies stop producing as much collagen and elastin, which are substances necessary for keeping skin firm and elastic. This lack of elasticity contributes to skin not being able to bounce back from wrinkling and as the years go on they become deeper and more noticeable as the muscles that cause them keep contracting. Xeomin is a neuromodulator, which relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles, allowing existing wrinkles to become softer and preventing future wrinkles.

If you are considering Xeomin or other forms of neuromodulator care, get in touch with Dr. Melda Isaac and the experienced dermatology team at MI Skin Dermatology Center in Washington DC. Call 202-393-SKIN today to schedule a consultation and learn more about care for your wrinkles.

What is Xeomin?

preventing wrinkle treatments washington dcXeomin is a neuromodulator similar to Botox and Dysport. Neuromodulators are used to relax wrinkle-causing muscles, thus reducing the appearance of existing wrinkles as well as preventing future wrinkles. When injected by a skilled, board-certified dermatologist such as Dr. Isaac at MI Skin Dermatology in Washington DC, Xeomin can contribute to a rejuvenated, youthful appearance.

Neuromodulators, such as Xeomin and Botox, have an undeserved reputation for causing “frozen” expressions. However, when injected by an experienced cosmetic dermatologist who knows exactly where to place the injections for the best results, Xeomin should not interfere with your ability to make natural expressions. The mark of the best injectors is that they are able to soften wrinkles in such a way that it is almost impossible to tell that work has been done.

Why Choose Xeomin?

Xeomin is lesser known than its counterpart, Botox, but it works equally well in the right candidates. It is comprised solely of botulinum toxin type A, with no additives, which means that there could be a lesser chance of developing antibodies against Xeomin than against Botox or Dysport. Xeomin is FDA approved and has a track record of safety and success.

Xeomin is best used for dynamic wrinkles, such as frown lines between the eyebrows. It targets specific muscles that cause them, so it will not be much help for wrinkles that are not caused by muscle repetition, such as lip lines and marionette lines. For those types of static wrinkles, a dermal filler such as Juvederm or Restylane would be better. Xeomin is safe to be combined with other treatments, so a patient could have this injection plus dermal fillers during the same session for a more comprehensive treatment plan. In addition, Dr. Isaac in Washington DC offers customized “liquid facelifts,” which combine a variety of non-invasive cosmetic treatments targeted at specific patient concerns for a mini facelift effect.
