One of the worst feelings a person can experience is looking in the mirror and seeing that they have wrinkles on their face, even when they are not making any facial expressions. We all know that wrinkles are not necessarily a bad thing; even when a person is young, they have wrinkles. These are called dynamic wrinkles. They happen when you smile, frown, and make all other normal facial expressions. The frustrating thing is that when you look in the mirror and you are not making any kind of facial expression, you still see those wrinkles. One of the most common types of dynamic wrinkles is called frown lines. These can be effectively treated using XEOMIN®.

XEOMIN® is very similar to BOTOX® and it shares the same purpose. It is injected into different muscles in the body to make them relax. Depending on the muscle it is injected into and the amount of the product that is injected, the muscles will relax. The relaxation means that your skin will be smooth and your frown lines may all but disappear. The only time that you will see your frown lines is when you make a severe facial expression.

One of the things that worries people when they consider a product like XEOMIN® is that they have the perception they will not be able to make normal facial expressions. They do not want to have their face look like it is frozen. This is not something that you should be concerned about when using this product. We very skillfully inject the product into the appropriate muscles. This means that you will have younger, smoother skin while still being capable of frowning, smiling, and expressing your emotions normally.

Individuals over the age of 18 qualify for this treatment. However, it is usually not until a person is in their mid to late 30’s that they become interested in this product in order to treat their frown lines and other dynamic wrinkles. That being said, it is usually a good idea for a person to begin to treat their dynamic wrinkles as soon as they began to appear. The thing about dynamic wrinkles is that the more a person contracts their facial muscles, the easier it is for their skin to develop deep creases over the years. You can nip this problem in the bud by using a product like XEOMIN® as soon as these wrinkles begin to show themselves.
