Frown lines develop in the upper part of your face and make you look angry and tired all the time. Dr. John Burroughs of Springs Aesthetics offers Xeomin® for men and women in Colorado Springs, South Denver, Castle Rock and other areas of Colorado. With over 20 years experience in ophthalmic plastic surgery, Dr. Burroughs travels around the world, teaching injection best practices and techniques.
What is Xeomin®?
Xeomin® injections are recommended for frown lines, a series of dynamic wrinkles that are formed by your facial expressions. Frown lines may appear as horizontal indentations across your forehead or vertical lines between your eyes. Xeomin® is also recommended by Dr. Burroughs to treat crow’s feet and other fine lines at the outer edges of the eyes.
How Much Does Xeomin® Cost?
The average cost of Xeomin® is $14 per unit, and Dr. Burroughs explains how many units are needed during the consultation. If you would like to make monthly payments for your Xeomin® injections, we work with CareCredit® and Alphaeon® as financing options for our patients.
Am I a Candidate for Xeomin®?
If you have frown lines and no history of an adverse reaction from neuromodulators, you may be a good candidate for Xeomin® injections. Dr. Burroughs may recommend a more extensive method of correcting your frown lines if he determines that your skin laxity may diminish the results of your Xeomin® treatment.
How is Xeomin® Performed?
Xeomin® is an injectable product that is administered via needle. The product is injected at several points along the muscles that control your facial expressions. The needle is very small, and you may feel only a slight prick on your skin. If you find that the procedure is too uncomfortable, we can use a topical anesthesia to help you relax.
What is Recovery Like After Xeomin®?
You can return to your normal activities after your Xeomin® injections. For the first few days, you may have some minor tenderness and swelling at each injection site. You can lightly apply a cold compress in the evening after your Xeomin® injections, but you will need to avoid placing any type of pressure on the area or massaging the area.
How Long Will Xeomin® Results Last?
In most cases, the results of Xeomin® injections last three to four months, but we have seen the results last as long as six months. Dr. Burroughs will schedule follow-up appointments with one of our aestheticians to monitor the results and decide the best time for a follow-up treatment.
