Smooth Out Frown Lines in Fruitland, Idaho
An especially effective treatment for frown lines related to muscle motion is a neuromodulator known as Xeomin®. In Fruitland, Idaho, at The MedSpa by CT Derm, we use the injectable for patients who want to temporarily relax the telltale 11's that develop between their eyes.
Like its fellow neuromodulator BOTOX®, Xeomin is an FDA-cleared treatment for dynamic wrinkles, which form due to the repetitive contractions of facial muscles. With each scowl or squint, specific muscles pull the overlying skin into folds. Over time, these lines become increasingly pronounced. By relaxing the muscles, the lines appear less severe and the skin has a smoother and more youthful appearance. Results take a matter of days to be visible, with the maximum effect seen a week or two later. The smoother skin lasts for months, after which muscle motion returns and the lines grow more pronounced again. Maintenance injection sessions can preserve the younger-looking brow—and may eventually "train" the facial muscles to be less active for a long-term benefit.
