When you want to look younger and more refreshed without having to deal with surgery or downtime, we recommend injectable treatments. Xeomin in Troy works by inhibiting the nerve signals in your muscles, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles created by repetitive movement.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Danielle DeLuca-Pytell wants you to feel confident and well-informed before choosing to undergo any type of procedure. During your initial consultation, she gets to know you, your lifestyle, and your budget to make personalized recommendations about cosmetic treatments.
Similar to Botox, Xeomin is a brand name for the injectable botulinum toxin type A product. Xeomin works by blocking nerve signals to your muscles, preventing the development of wrinkles and creating a smoother complexion. For optimal results, our plastic surgeon in Troy delivers a series of Xeomin injections directly into your targeted muscles. This procedure typically takes only a few minutes, and though it provides an array of benefits, Xeomin is primarily used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Xeomin has many benefits in addition to smoothing out any wrinkles around your forehead, glabella, and the outer corners of the eyes (“crow’s feet”). In addition to providing aesthetic benefits, Xeomin is also protein-free. For those with rare Botox or Dysport reactions, Xeomin is an excellent choice. Dr. DeLuca-Pytell presented a case study involving this at the American College of Asthma, Allergy and Immunology in 2022.
Xeomin is a non-surgical treatment that involves a simple injection process. You should be able to resume your regular activities immediately after your treatment session. Less downtime can be extremely beneficial when you are trying to fit your treatment into a busy schedule.
Our Troy plastic surgeon emphasizes natural-looking results when performing Xeomin injections, meaning you will be able to maintain your face’s expressiveness. While Xeomin has a quick onset and typically takes effect within a few days to a week after an injection session, its effects are temporary and only last a few months. Temporary results allow patients to make informed decisions about whether they would like to continue with Xeomin injections.
Xeomin injections are generally safe when performed by a board-certified professional such as Dr. DeLuca-Pytell. However, like all medical treatments, there may be side effects. Fortunately, these side effects are usually mild and do not last long. The most common reactions include pain or discomfort, redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection site. You may experience a mild headache, fatigue, weakness, or nausea. Injections near your eyes can sometimes lead to temporary dryness or irritation.
Dr. DeLuca-Pytell reviews your entire medical history in advance of any treatment to ensure you are an ideal candidate. Our Troy team is here for you from the moment you schedule an appointment until you are entirely satisfied with the results of your Xeomin injections.
