At Montante Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics, we strive to provide cutting-edge aesthetic treatments for our clients. Xeomin is a neuromodulator that can treat and reduce the appearance of active, dynamic facial wrinkles. However, compared to Botox and other injectable treatments, patients are less likely to develop adverse reactions or complications from a Xeomin treatment.

Shelly Montante is a professionally licensed and board-certified nurse practitioner who can perform a Xeomin treatment to address your individual skin and aging concerns. Connect with us today to discover how Xeomin in Richmond could help you reduce your active facial wrinkles.

How Does Xeomin Work?

Wrinkles and skin folds form because the brain sends signals to the underlying muscle to move, allowing you to express emotion. However, as we age, the skin loses its ability to “bounce back” to a normal position after moving and making these expressions. Because of this, you may start seeing the formation of lines, wrinkles, and skin folds.

As a neuromodulator, Xeomin works similarly to Botox and targets active facial wrinkles at the source: in the underlying muscle. However, unlike other injectable treatments, Xeomin uses a purified formula, removing unnecessary proteins that could lead to long-term complications.

Shelly can use Xeomin to treat active wrinkles, particularly lines on your forehead and between your eyebrows. Being able to express your emotions is natural and beautiful, so Shelly works to ensure the results from your Xeomin treatments at our Richmond office rewind the clock but do not appear frozen.

What To Expect From Your Xeomin Treatment

First, we will meet with you in an initial consultation to identify your skin concerns and how best to treat them. Our team will perform a complete medical assessment, and it is important that you tell our medical team about any medications you are taking and if you have a history of chronic health issues, bleeding, or skin problems. During this consultation, our Richmond team will also review potential side effects, risks, and expected recovery time to prepare you for your Xeomin procedure.

The Xeomin injection procedure only takes a few minutes to complete, depending on the number and size of target treatment areas. First, we will cleanse your skin and, if necessary, apply a topical anesthetic. Next, Shelly will inject the Xeomin formula into selected target areas. Following the procedure, we will once again clean your skin to reveal your fresh and rejuvenated look. We may give you an ice pack to reduce swelling, but most patients can resume their usual activities immediately after their treatment.

How Long Do Results Last?

While some people notice an immediate effect from their Xeomin treatment, full results will appear gradually over the next few days. The results of Xeomin are not permanent and typically last around five to six months. To maintain your beautiful results, we typically recommend scheduling maintenance appointments approximately twice a year.
