At LIFESmiles Dental, we understand that having a beautiful smile is more than just having nice teeth. The facial skin around your smile and eyes or along your forehead can either enhance or take away from your smile’s overall look. To help keep wrinkles at bay and give you an overall more youthful appearance, Dr. Garpetti and Dr. Elliott are happy to offer Xeomin® in Boise, Idaho.
Xeomin is an FDA-approved BOTOX-like treatment that injects a cosmetic serum into your facial skin. This serum can treat a variety of wrinkles that you may develop as you age, especially frown lines between the eyebrows. When it is injected into your skin, Xeomin blocks the nerves in the facial muscles so that they do not receive the signals to move. This ultimately relaxes the muscles and reduces the appearance of wrinkles.
Each Xeomin treatment lasts about 10 to 20 minutes, and the results can last for up to six months. You may need to return to our office for retreatments to maintain your youthful appearance as the Xeomin begins to wear off.
If you would like to learn more about Xeomin and how it can help you look and feel younger, we invite you to contact our office at 208-377-2160 and set up an appointment with one of our caring dentists.
