Xeomin® in Santa Barbara, CA
Xeomin® is an option to reduce the pronounced lines around the forehead, eyes and between the brows. In Santa Barbara, Santa Maria, and Ventura, CA, as well as the surrounding communities, Sara Yegiyants, MD, FACS, uses Xeomin® on people who want to restore a rejuvenated, younger looking appearance.
What is Xeomin®?
Xeomin® is a prescription injectable developed to reduce severe worry and frown lines across the forehead and between the eyebrows that contract with facial expressions. It is also used to treat lines around the mouth and eyes. Over time, the lines and wrinkles become more pronounced.
Why Choose Xeomin®?
Xeomin® contains a more purified form of the toxin found in Botox® and Dysport® in which the preservative proteins are removed. This makes it bond to the muscles faster and provide faster results. It is often recommended if the results from the others are not satisfactory.
Who is a Good Candidate for Xeomin®?
Men and women with pronounced lines across their forehead or between their eyebrows that do not seem to go away may be a good candidate for Xeomin®. Additionally, if Botox® and Dysport® do not seem to achieve the desired look, Xeomin® may be an option to correct the issues.
How is Xeomin® Administered?
During the treatment, Xeomin® is injected directly into the targeted muscles that cause the contractions and ultimately the lines and wrinkles. The muscles become temporarily paralyzed which smooths the skin. There is quite a bit of skill in treating wrinkles and lines with Xeomin® as it is important to relax the muscles just enough to achieve a naturally refreshed expression without looking frozen.
As with other dermal fillers and injectables, there is no downtime or recovery. People may return to their normal daily activities.
When Will I See the Results from Xeomin®?
The results from Xeomin® may start to show following the appointment but the full effects take a couple of weeks. They last about six months so we recommend follow-up appointments at about that time for continued maintenance to ensure a younger looking appearance is sustained.
How Much Does Xeomin® Cost in Santa Barbara?
The cost for Xeomin® treatments varies based on the extent of the areas to be treated, how many injections are required and whether other treatments are performed at the same time. We review the costs with each patient during a consultation along with payment and financing options. We accept cash, checks, and major credit cards, and offer financing through Alphaeon® and CareCredit®.
