Have you been curious about how you can reduce the appearance of the lines between your eyebrows? Have you considered Xeomin? Also referred to as “Newtox”, this treatment is similar to Botox in that it is a long-lasting, highly effective way to get smoother skin without surgery or serums that need nightly application. At Indian Lake Medical Weight Loss and Wellness in Hendersonville, TN, we would love to provide you with all the information you need to know about this exciting new treatment, and get you started with a free consultation!
How Long-Lasting Is Xeomin?
One major advantage of this treatment is that the results last for a long time, especially compared to other options. In fact, its longevity is one of the reasons so many people are requesting this service. So, how long does it last? Most people find that it works for 3-4 months, but in many cases, it can last for as long as 6. That means that with only a few appointments per year, you can experience an amazing reduction in your fine lines all the time.
What Exactly Is This “Newtox”?
Let’s start with the basic information on this injectable. It is a neurotoxin that delivers a synthetic form of a botulinum toxin directly into the areas of your face that are prone to wrinkling. This protein occurs naturally and is perfectly safe for cosmetic use. It gently inhibits the tiny muscle contractions that cause your skin to crease, while leaving the rest of your face to be dynamic, expressive, and natural-looking.
What It Treats
The most common use of this form of botulinum toxin is the treatment of glabellar lines. Those are the lines that you might see starting to develop between your eyebrows. People commonly call them “frown lines”. By regulating the muscle movements in that specific area, this treatment allows the skin to smooth out, leaving a more relaxed expression and smoother skin.
What Happens During Your Appointment
Given the high level of effectiveness associated with this treatment, you might be surprised to learn that the actual appointment is very fast and easy on your schedule. You will probably spend about half an hour in our med spa, and the injections take only 10-15 minutes to finish.
First, you will arrive and check in. Depending on the schedule, we might even be able to treat you right after your free consultation. Next, we use a topical numbing agent to desensitize the area. Then comes the injections. For most people, 5 injection sites are sufficient. And that’s it! You’re done!
What to Do After
One of the best parts of getting this treatment is that you don’t have to have any surgery, take off work, or otherwise plan for downtime. Immediately after the injections are done, you can get right back into your routine. The only thing we recommend is to take a 24 hour break from rigorous exercise.
Top Benefits of Xeomin
The long-lasting effects aren’t the only reason people choose this treatment. Here are some of the other key advantages you will enjoy:
In the quest for the perfect anti-aging solution, most people have the experience of looking into the mirror wondering whether or not the expensive cream they just tried worked at all. Were those lines any deeper weeks ago? Is the difference just a result of the lighting or the amount of sleep you got? Xeomin is a treatment that won’t leave you disappointed – it delivers noticeable results that you can look forward to each time you book an appointment.
Results That Appear Soon After Your Appointment
Unlike with some other solutions, you won’t have to wait very long to see the results you are looking for. Most people see their fine lines receding within one week or less. After two weeks, you will be enjoying your full results. By contrast, some over-the-counter creams and serums take six weeks to make any changes in your skin.
No Need to Keep Trying New Products
With injectables, the results are real and repeatable – as soon as they start to fade you can book another appointment. That means that you don’t need to spend a lot of time and money trying new products, many of which can cost over $100, depending on the quality.
There Is No Surgery
If you are someone who is considering non-surgical ways to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, this treatment is an excellent choice. It will have a greater effect than a good skincare routine alone, but it doesn’t require any surgical procedures.
Did you know that hundreds of thousands of people get botulinum toxin treatments every year? They are not only one of the most popular cosmetic treatments, they are also among the safest. Xeomin has been FDA approved since 2005, and is considered a very gentle approach to getting rid of glabellar lines.
You Won’t Develop a Tolerance
While it is very rare, some people develop a tolerance to Botox. This is not dangerous, but it does mean that if they get the treatment more than once, it will not reduce their fine lines as much as the first time. Xeomin uses a slightly different protein (incobotulinumtoxinA vs. onabotulinumtoxinA), and its version is not known to have that effect.
It Will Fit In With Your Routine
This treatment is combinable with virtually all other anti-aging practices. You can (and should) use it in tangent with a good daily cleanser, toner, and moisturizer. You can even have it done with dermal fillers. Many people opt for that route because dermal fillers and neurotoxins work in different ways. Neurotoxins prevent the slight facial movements that cause wrinkles, while dermal fillers plump them out and deliver substances that help your skin maintain its elasticity.
You Will Look Like You
Today, anti-aging treatments have come a long way. You don’t need to worry about appearing to have a “frozen face” or about not being able to communicate your emotions with facial expressions. The five injections you receive will be done in a very precise way and with an expert sense of aesthetics. They will isolate your wrinkle-causing movements while leaving the rest of your face dynamic.

What Age Do Most People Start?
People from a wide range of ages receive this treatment. That’s because it is beneficial at almost any age after fine lines start to appear.
