Xeomin Injections at Dvida Spa:
Dvida Spa is happy to start offering the Botox “cleaner” alternative, Xeomin, at our spa in Chicago’s beautiful River North! Xeomin is an FDA-approved “smart toxin” that utilizes a double filtered unique formula to remove unnecessary proteins, leaving you only with what is necessary to effectively treat the muscle and provide smoother skin. Xeomin is hailed by celebrity Gwenyth Paltrow, now the face of the brand, for its natural results and clean label, and lasting results.
What is Xeomin?
Xeomin is a neurotoxin that is made through a unique manufacturing process that uses two filtration steps to isolate the therapeutic component of the toxin, and removes the unnecessary proteins that don’t play a role in treating the muscle. Xeomin is the only “pure” and filtered neurotoxin and because of that, it lowers the risk of your body becoming immune to the toxin and it becoming less effective over time. This makes it a great toxin for younger patients, as well as adults of all ages, particularly those that have built a “tolerance” to traditional Botox. Patients who have developed a tolerance to Botox, often find that they require less units, and the results last longer.
How does Xeomin work?
Deep lines and wrinkles form when you make the same expression over time as the facial muscles contract under the skin. Neurotoxins like Xeomin block the release of the chemicals that cause these muscle contractions, making your lines and wrinkles appear much smoother as you make facial expressions. As Xeomin is injected into the muscles, it gets to work on the nerve endings in your muscle to temporarily prevent the muscle fibers from contracting. This will improve the appearance of moderate to severe lines and wrinkles. Treatment usually takes about 10-20 minutes, there is little to no pain with Xeomin injections.
Xeomin Post-Injection Home Care:
After the treatment, your Aesthetic Nurse at Dvida Spa will recommend post care products to enhance and maintain your results between treatments. Do not lay down, or apply any pressure to the treated area, and do not work out or heat the skin for the next four hours to prevent the migration of the toxin to unwanted areas. You may start to notice a visible smoothing effect as early as 3-4 days after treatment, but Xeomin may take up to two weeks to fully provide you with optimal smoothing effects. Clinical trials showed that the duration of the toxin was up to three months, but may last significantly longer in some patients, as everyone’s natural repair process is different.
