Xeomin treatments in Tampa smooth out your skinFrown lines and forehead wrinkles are top concerns among patients who want to turn back the hands of time on their face. The Lombardi Institute of Dermatology in Tampa offers a variety of anti-aging injectable options such as XEOMIN® to meet patients' needs. A consultation with Dr. Milan Lombardi will help you determine which treatment would be best for your needs.
Facial expressions are to blame for frown lines between the eyes, also called glabellar lines. Repeated facial expressions combined with the loss of skin elasticity as we age causes these lines to form and become deeper over time. Environmental factors such as sun exposure and pollution, as well as genetics can cause these lines to deepen more rapidly.
Anti-aging injectable treatments such as BOTOX® have been the preferred treatment for these troublesome wrinkles for patients around the world for a number of years, but emerging treatments are proving to be as effective with potentially fewer side effects. Considered an alternative to BOTOX®, XEOMIN® is a newer FDA-approved injectable that contains botulinum toxin type A, a purified protein that relaxes the facial muscles. Within a week, the targeted wrinkles smooth out and seemingly disappear. You can expect results to last for several months.
XEOMIN® is different from BOTOX® in that it does not need to be refrigerated and contains no additives, which makes it less likely that patients will develop an allergy and reject additional treatments. This makes it appealing to doctors and patients alike.
Anti-aging injectables such as XEOMIN® are more convenient and less painful than other wrinkle-fighting treatments such as chemical peels, laser resurfacing or face lifts. Treatment with XEOMIN® usually takes about 20 minutes, and no anesthesia is required. Dr. Lombardi may use a cold pack or topical anesthetic to reduce discomfort. You can return to work or home immediately after your appointment – no downtime required.
Residents in and around Tampa who are looking for a newer wrinkle-filling option for their forehead lines and wrinkles should turn to Dr. Lombardi at the Lombardi Institute of Dermatology. Call to set up a consultation and see which treatment – or combination of treatments – can give you the youthful look you desire.
