Over time, you may begin to notice vertical frown lines between your eyes as a sign of aging that can become largely annoying, making you possibly appear angry. To refresh the look of your face, plastic surgery isn’t always necessary. Xeomin® treatments at Coastal Cosmetic Center, with offices in Jacksonville and Fleming Island, can restore your youthful appearance and expression. Board-certified plastic surgeon Timothy E. Fee, MD, offers Xeomin® injections to residents from North Florida and around the world.
What is Xeomin®?
Xeomin®, made by Merz Pharmaceuticals, is an injectable treatment that has now been FDA-approved in the U.S. for some cosmetic indications, including moderate-to-severe frown lines between the eyebrows. It is a series of quick, simple injections that can dramatically improve the look of your skin while maintaining your natural expressions.
What Are the Benefits of Xeomin®?
Xeomin® helps to relax and smooth out dep-set wrinkles on the upper portion of the face. Xeomin® requires no downtime and treatment lasts less than 30 minutes.
Who is an Ideal Candidate for Xeomin®?
Individuals with moderate to severe vertical lines between the eyes, as well as crow’s feet and horizontal forehead lines, are usually good candidates for Xeomin®. Also, those who are not able to use Botox® may be able to undergo Xeomin® treatments.
How Does Xeomin® Work?
Xeomin® is not a dermal filler like Radiesse® or Juvéderm®; instead, Xeomin® temporarily paralyzes the facial muscles that cause wrinkles to form when they contract. The effects of Xeomin® occur within one week, and the results last from three to six months, making it comparable to Botox® in terms of both onset and duration of action.
How Much Does Xeomin® Cost?
Costs vary on the extent of treatment necessary and the number of injections need. All applicable costs will be discussed during your initial consultation. For your convenience, we offer financing options to assist you in paying for your treatment. When surgery is involved, all procedures are performed at Coastal Cosmetic Center’s nationally accredited on-site surgery facility, Coastal Surgery Center, in Jacksonville, FL, to help save time and money.
