Everyone ages, but most people don’t want to look old.
Fortunately, there’s never been a better time to maintain your youthful looks for longer. These days, there are wrinkle relaxers for some of the most common signs of aging.
Xeomin®, for instance, is steadily becoming more popular. Let’s take a closer look into what makes this injectable a safe and effective way to treat and prevent fine lines and wrinkles.
What is Xeomin®?
If you’ve heard of Botox ®, Xeomin ® is quite similar. They’re both neurotoxins that are FDA-cleared for treating wrinkles and fine lines.
However, Xeomin ® is a purer neurotoxin. Comprised of incobotulinumtoxinA, this injectable doesn’t contain other proteins that can be found in Botox and is often recommended for patients who have built up a resistance to the additive proteins in Botox and aren’t getting as much results.
It’s also especially suitable for treating moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows, which are sometimes called “11” lines. However, it can sometimes be used to address everything from gummy smiles to boxy jawlines.
How Does It Work?
Active wrinkles like frown lines and crow’s feet form when you repeatedly make certain facial expressions like smiling, laughing, or frowning, thus creasing the skin over time.
Neurotoxins like Xeomin ® work by temporarily paralyzing or relaxing the facial muscles that make these expressions, causing the skin to smooth out and thus diminishing the wrinkles in the treated area.
What to Expect During Your Xeomin ® Treatment
If it’s your first time getting Xeomin ®, your injector will consult with you to determine your goals and concerns, and also to examine your face. This way, they’ll be able to come up with the right treatment plan for you.
The injection itself only takes minutes, though that can depend on the dosage you need and how many injections you’ll require. Some patients require topical anesthesia, but most don’t feel any pain aside from a mild pinch.
Best of all, there’s no downtime required, so you can go back to your daily routine right after.
Results and Aftercare
The results usually appear within 5- 7 days, and can last up to four months, depending on how quickly your body metabolizes the substance.
Since the results aren’t permanent, periodic touch-ups are recommended to maintain a certain look.
While there’s no downtime required, it’s best to observe the appropriate aftercare, such as:
- Not rubbing the treated area for at least 24 hours after the procedure
- Staying upright/refraining from lying down or reclining for several hours after
These steps can help prevent the neurotoxin from spreading into other areas.
Xeomin ® is a great way to stay youthful-looking for longer, but only if you go to a qualified injector.

Keralase is a revolutionary new treatment for hair loss (improved over PRP) using Lutronic Ultra laser and KeraFactor. KeraFactor serum has proprietary biometric synthetic versions of growth factors and proteins which promote hair growth. Ultra alone showed significant improvements in scalp revitalization.
Lutronic Ultra laser creates tiny “microchannels” in the scalp which help to increase the absorption of KeraFactor. KeraFactor is then applied and massaged into the scalp. There is minimal pain, no bleeding, and no downtime. No needles or shots are required.
WHY IS KERAFACTOR BETTER THAN PRP?
KeraFactor has highly concentrated levels of growth hormones and proteins that specifically boost hair growth and affects all 4 stages of the hair life cycle. Kerafactor is coated with nano-liposomes which aid its absorption, allowing for enhanced delivery of growth hormones directly to the hair follicles. Each nano-liposome contains thousands of each specific growth factor.
Platelets have variable amounts of growth factors depending on the genetics and health conditions of the person. Platelets also contain growth factors that actually inhibit hair growth. Platelet therapy requires a blood draw, centrifuge, followed by multiple injections into the scalp. Even after numbing medication, the injections can be painful and lead to bruising or hematomas.
