Smoothen Away Frown Lines

Xeomin is a form of botulinum toxin, a protein used to temporarily paralyze targeted muscles. When injected into the facial muscles that cause frown lines, it can relax and smooth out the unwanted expression lines between the eyebrows. Xeomin is especially effective for wrinkles between the eyebrows, known as glabellar lines, but it can also correct other dynamic wrinkles caused by facial expressions, such as forehead creases and crow’s feet.

Xeomin Corrects:

  • Forehead creases
  • Frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Perioral lines around the lips
  • Bunny lines around the nose bridge
  • Neck bands and creases
  • Dimpled chin and creases

How Xeomin Works

Xeomin is a neuromodulator made of botulinum toxin type A, which can temporarily paralyze targeted muscles. Xeomin works by blocking the release of a chemical called acetylcholine, which is responsible for muscle contractions.

When the muscles can’t contract, the wrinkles and lines caused by those contractions are smoothed out. As such, Xeomin addresses the root cause of dynamic wrinkles. The effects of Xeomin can be seen within a few days.

Naked Botulinum Toxin

Xeomin is a “naked” form of botulinum toxin, meaning it doesn’t contain any additional proteins. This makes it a purer form of the toxin, which can result in a more targeted and effective treatment. Botox and most other neuromodulators contain added proteins that increase stability but also lead to a higher risk of your body developing a tolerance, so the treatments may stop working after a few years. But your body is less likely to develop a tolerance to Xeomin.

Benefits of Xeomin:

  • Non-surgical and minimally invasive treatment
  • Quick treatment with minimal downtime
  • Can be done during lunch break
  • Long-lasting results (typically 3-6 months)
  • Can prevent new wrinkles from forming
  • Improves self-esteem and confidence
  • Your body doesn’t develop a tolerance
  • No post-treatment downtime or harsh side effects

Candidates for Xeomin:

  • Have dynamic wrinkles caused by excessive facial movements
  • Want to prevent new wrinkles from forming

  • Are not pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Are in good overall health
  • Have realistic expectations from the treatment

Your Xeomin Experience

At Ginille Beauty, we pride ourselves on providing a comfortable and relaxing experience for our clients. During your treatment, a small amount of the Xeomin solution will be injected into the muscles that cause frown lines and other dynamic wrinkles. The procedure is quick and relatively painless, with most clients reporting only mild discomfort. The number of injections depends on your goals, and the entire treatment concludes within 30 minutes.

Side Effects & Recovery

Xeomin is a safe and well-tolerated treatment with side effects that are generally mild and short-lived. You may experience some redness, swelling, bruising, or mild pain at the injection site, but these effects usually resolve within a few hours or days. You can resume your normal activities immediately after the treatment, but please avoid strenuous workouts and physical activities for a day or two.

Results & Maintenance

The results of Xeomin can be seen within a few days, with continued improvements for up to 2 weeks. The final results can last for 3 to 4 months. To maintain the results, it’s recommended that you schedule follow-up treatments every 3 to 4 months. With regular maintenance, you can enjoy a youthful and wrinkle-free appearance for years to come.
