My Xeomin Experience | Jawline Slimming & Brow Lift
Come behind-the-scenes with me through my Xeomin treatments!
My Experience With Xeomin
I’ve recently had a couple of Xeomin treatments at Entière Dermatology to not only help with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, but to slim down the muscles in my jawline. I have always believed it is so important for women to do whatever they want to do to make themselves feel beautiful, and cosmetic treatments like Botox, Xeomin, or even fillers are no exception.
As someone who has always been a little insecure about the appearance of my jaw, I was instantly intrigued when I heard that Xeomin was a great solution to lessen the over-developed masseter muscles. After seeing Dr. Levin twice already, I moved on with a consultation to get her most professional advice on what else she thought I needed. I have now received treatments in my upper forehead and crow’s feet area and can officially say I am sold on the natural-looking and subtle effects of Xeomin.
What is Xeomin?
Xeomin is a form of botulism toxin that is injected into the face and used to block muscle movement in areas that contribute to wrinkles. Unlike other neuromodulators, Xeomin does not have certain accessory proteins around the botulinum toxin molecule. This means that theoretically, you might have less of a reaction to Xeomin.
Neuromodulators block nerves from signaling to the underlying muscles to soften contraction. These toxins are all derived from safe, highly purified, and controlled doses of botulinum toxin. Dr. Levin from Entière Dermatology uses multiple types of neuromodulators in her office, but believes Xeomin to be the perfect happy medium.
Xeomin Vs. Botox or Dysport
At my 2-week follow up, I was blown away by my results. We took some final photos so that Dr. Levin and I could visually see the progress, and I could not believe the difference that 2 weeks had made. The first thing I noticed was how awake I looked! The procedure had naturally lifted my eyebrows and relaxed the bags underneath my eyes. It almost looked as if I was wearing concealer in my after photos! I also took note of how less sunken down my face looked. Even if I were tired, I would wake up with a more lifted, youthful-looking glow. My partner even noticed how much more vibrant my face was!
As for my jaw, the results could not fully be seen in 2 weeks. For bigger muscles like the masseter, it takes about a month for the Xeomin to take full effect. With that being said, I still noticed a difference in the muscles of my jaw. They had toned down and felt much more relaxed.
Overall, the best part of the results had to be how subtle they were. I absolutely loved the differences because they were super noticeable to myself, but not too dramatic to anyone else. I felt and appeared naturally more youthful, and I can’t wait to return in 4-6 months!
And there you have it! I hope you enjoyed a behind-the-scenes experience for my Xeomin treatment!
