More Injectable Options for Wrinkles in the Havertown, Main Line, PA and wider Philadelphia Area
Xeomin ® (incobotulinumtoxinA) is among the many wrinkle-relaxing treatments available at Mind Your Skin. Just like BOTOX Cosmetic®, this neuromodulator causes specific muscles to relax. This diminishes their ability to pull the overlying skin into visible lines and folds. This smoothes frown lines, we call them glabellar lines, which form between the eyes just above the nose. They are most apparent when you make a confused or stern expression—anything that pulls the forehead down and eyebrows together. In addition Xeomin ® (incobotulinumtoxinA) works well for transverse lines across the forehead and crow’s feet (“smile lines”) around the eyes. Jeuveau™, Dysport® and Xeomin® in Philadelphia and surrounding areas are at times available at lower cost . But Botox Cosmetic® remains the gold standard in the industry.
Xeomin ® , or incobotulinumtoxinA is unique in that it has zero unnecessary accessory proteins in the vial. Xeomin is in this way the more ‘pure’ BoNT/A. Since these “complexing proteins” can (rarely) mediate an immune response, it comes as no surprise then that there has never been a reported case of anyone being resistant to this neurotoxin. It is therefore our go-to when there is any doubt that a patient has developed antibodies to Botulinum toxin. This does not immediately fix the problem,. But it allows the antibody titer to gradually drop over time and by this mechanism help regain a treatment response.
Xeomin is developed and produced by Merz in Germany. Botulinum neurotoxin is the product of a very complex biotechnical process. Merz uses state-of-the-art technology in its dedicated facility in Dessau, meeting the highest international standards for biologic manufacturing.
XEOMIN ® IN PHILADELPHIA AND BEYOND
Norbertus Robben, MD, performs all of the injections himself, working with each patient to determine which injectable and which pattern of injection is right for our Havertown, Main Line, PA, and surrounding areas. The four neuromodulator (Jeuveau™ is the newest) options are all similar, but have subtle differences that we review during an initial consultation. In combination with fillers, neuromodulators can help achieve a ‘liquid face-lift’. In our experienced hands, whether you are from Philadelphia, Havertown, Springfield or Media, West Chester, PA, the Main Line around Bryn Mawr, Ardmore or Wynnewood, you can expect months of a softer, more youthful look!
