The muscles in your lips and around your mouth change as part of the natural aging process, causing you to look older as those muscles weaken. At AURAE MD in La Jolla, CA, you will be provided with simple injections of a substance called Xeomin that can drastically improve your smile and give you a younger, more vibrant expression.
Can Xeomin Injections Smooth Lip Lines?
What Is It?
Xeomin is an injectable medication that contains the botulism toxin that has successfully been used to freeze facial muscles. This type of injectable is part of a group called neuromodulators. These medications cause a disturbance in the transmissions of messages between neurons. When muscles cannot receive these messages, the result is that muscle tension is relaxed.
Many women around the world have used medications containing botulism to fight the signs of aging, particularly wrinkles in the forehead and areas around the face where muscle movement leaves its mark. Neuromodulating injections have also been proven to be useful in areas of the face around the lips and near the mouth.
How Is It Administered?
Xeomin and other neuromodulation treatments are administered through a small injection directly underneath the top layer of the skin and into the muscle being targeted. The injections contain a very small amount of the substance that is being added to the skin near the mouth. Only a minute amount is necessary to see excellent results.
One reason these types of treatments are so popular is that they do not require surgery or any other type of treatment that may take a long time to recover from. An injection is quick and only requires a short visit to the medical office. This makes it the perfect option for people with busy schedules who need a treatment that is fast, effective, and lasting.
What Are the Advantages?
Patients around the world are discovering that Xeomin has many advantages over other types of neuromodulators. While it may not be the right choice for every person, many people have found extraordinary success with this option. Some include the injection’s ability to perform when patients have developed a tolerance for other types of neuromodulators.
Another advantage is that this medication does not have to be refrigerated, so it is easier to store in a safe and responsible manner. This is also somewhat less expensive than other types of muscle injection treatments, so patients who are concerned about their budgets may find it a better choice than more costly neuromodulators you may have used in the past.
What Is the Difference From Other Neuromudolators?
The key difference is that other botulism injections contain several different proteins in addition to the active ingredient that does the work. These proteins surround the main ingredient and are injected into the muscles along with the active substance. Sometimes patients who use the ingredients consistently can become immune or tolerant to the proteins, and the injection no longer works as well as it once did.
Patients may believe that neuromodulators will no longer work for them, but in reality, it is the proteins that are no longer working. Xeomin was created specifically to be effective without extra proteins, so people who have become immune to other treatments will find that this works for them. If other kinds of botulism injections are not working the way they once did, try a version without additives. You are likely to find that the new injectable works much better.
How Does It Work For Lips?
This treatment is specifically designed for people who want to transform their smiles but don’t want the extra plumping that comes from treatment with ingredients that contain a filler. Fillers injections are intended to make lips fuller and add volume, and that is not the right result for everyone. If you are unhappy with your smile but don’t want to add volume to your lips, a neuromodulator might be the right choice for you.
Would you prefer if your smile showed less of your gums? If you feel insecure about your lips pulling back when you laugh or smile, this type of injection may work wonders for you. When the muscles in your lips are relaxed through a botulism injection, they will cover your gums more fully. This will allow you to be more confident about showing your beautiful smile.
